Snapchat filters are one of the signature pieces of the social network, but now one of them is part of a lawsuit.
The filter of concern is the one that shows how fast you are going.

It's fun when someone Snaps from an airplane and they're going 500+ miles per hour! But now a teen allegedly got into a car accident because they were trying to post a really high speed on Snapchat.
The lawsuit suggests that Snapchat should have known that people would drive too fast just to show a high speed. That's a big leap. Couldn't you just as easily snap a photo of the speedometer while you were driving that fast? Wouldn't that make the car manufacturer liable?
Don't get me wrong - I absolutely believe that people probably try and drive fast to get Snapchat to show the speed, but I don't think Snapchat is at fault for that.
In case the theatrical version wasn't long enough for you, the R-Rated home release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will make you very happy. It's going to be 181 minutes, which clocks in at just above 3 hours. It's also going to be a little more violent, hence the R-Rating.
I don't mind when they make movies for home viewing that long, but let's keep the theater versions at around 2 hours. I like to spend $28 on a giant soda, and I know you won't pause the movie just for me to go to the bathroom.
Beyonce's new album Lemonade has been trending all week. It feels like a very well crafted storyline to sell albums, and we love a good story don't we?
In case you've missed it all, the album re-introduced a story about a time that Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with someone nicknamed "Becky with the good hair." Here are some of the best Tweets that have come from it. Heads up - Some NSFW language.
It's now official. A judge has determined that Prince died without a will and appointed the bank that Prince trusted to manage his assets. Prince's sister, Tyka, was the one that filed the papers for that to happen. The judge has also ruled that Prince's assets will be distributed to his brothers and sisters. The bank will also serve as the administrator of Prince's estate, which is worth somewhere close to $150 million. The judge is only making the bank the administrator for up to 6 months until a personal representative can be appointed. That's when things will start to get messy, because I'm sure siblings will come forward trying to be administrator.
Jessica Alba's Honest Co. is being sued again! There's been claims made that the company's organic infant formula includes 11 "synthetic ingredients not allowed in organic food by federal law." So pretty much her organic infant formula is FAR from being organic. The Organic Consumers Association filed a suit saying that some of the ingredients are even hazardous and haven't been assessed as safe for human foods, much less for infant formulas. Uh oh!
This cast is really starting to shape up! Dancing With The Stars pro Derek Hough has joined the cast of NBC's Hairspray Live! He will take on the role of Corny Collins. Martin Short has also joined the cast as Wilbur Turnblad, Edna's husband. They join Jennifer Hudson and Harvy Fierstein (FEAR-STEAN), who have already been announced as part of the cast! Derek Hough will be perfect in the role of Corny Collins! Congratulations!
This should be interesting to watch! Will Ferrell is going to star as former president Ronald Reagan in the upcoming film Reagan, a Black List script written by Mike Rosolio. The story takes place during the beginning of President Reagan's second term. In the movie he "falls into dementia" and an "ambitious intern" is then "tasked with convincing the commander-in-chief that he is an actor playing the President in a movie." Will Ferrell has played President George W. Bush in SNL skits, so hey, makes sense right? He just has to be serious for this one!
Love conquers all, right? Especially when it comes to pets! Demi Lovato got a new Sphynx cat this week. The cat may be furless but Demi Lovato shared a picture of herself on Snapchat cuddling her new kitty and showing everyone that she found out that she's still allergic to the cat! In the picture, her face is swelling but Demi Lovato said, "I honestly thought I wouldn't be allergic to a hairless cat… I'm so bummed… So allergic it's not even funny but I'm keeping her!" Hey I can relate, allergic to all my animals but I keep them anyway because I love them so much!
Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland and Delaware all voted for Trump over Cruz and Kasich yesterday, giving him an even bigger lead in the party’s delegate count.
But this post isn't about politics, it’s about Hollywood.
Several celebrities have come out saying if Donald is elected President, they will move out of the country. What will we do?
Girls star Lena Dunham now says she’ll move to Vancouver. “I can get my work done from there.”
Other stars who have pledged to relocate if Trump wins the White House include Miley Cyrus, Jon Stewart, Samuel L. Jackson and Cher.
If a celebrity endorsement matters to you in your voting process, which it shouldn't, Kerry Washington, Chris Brown, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Josh Groban, Demi Lovato, Common, America Ferrera, Jack Black, Susan Sarandon, Ben Stiller, Jennifer Lawrence, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Sarah Silverman, Shakira, Richard Gere, Bette Midler and Louis C.K. have all publicly denounced Trump.
No word yet on if anyone on that list is house shopping in Canada in an effort to be Lena's neighbor.
This is not totally crazy. Mately, a subscription-based STD testing service, is planning to launch an Indiegogo campaign for a dating app. They want to change how we date online to include an STD status.
The idea is that members can privately share their STD test results with people who they meet on dating apps like Tinder.
The promo video below makes a good point, “When it comes to our sexual health, shouldn't we have information we can trust?"
In the video they describe the system as being perfect, but anyone with half a brain could find ways to cheat the system. Creepy, huh?
It's clearly obvious that things are tense and awkward behind the scenes! Kelly Ripa may have returned to Live! yesterday and said that she loves Michael Strahan and was happy for his move to GMA, but that seems to be a lie because he'll be stepping down from his role as co-host of Live! early! Michael Strahan wasn't supposed to go full-time at GMA until September, but now his last show will be on May 13th. ABC is saying that this is the best because it will give Live! more time to find Kelly Ripa a new co-host, but something tells me that Kelly Ripa wanted him along with all that anger and awkwardness gone. Well, at least Michael Strahan can enjoy a summer off!
Kim Kardashian is addressing the rumors that she and her husband Kanye West are close to getting a divorce because she can't handle his antics. She posted a new video to her app and said, "I've definitely had my fair share of, like, dramatic relationships. Honestly, this is like the most calm and it's like, nope, we're still together. We're happy. There's just nothing to really report on." So there you have it!
Speaking of rough patches, Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox may be getting out of theirs now that they are expecting baby #3 together! Even though Megan Fox filed for a divorce, the two of them flew to the Four Seasons where they got married in Hawaii last week with their sons for a family vacation. People Magazine is reporting that this was a trip to help figure things out and that Brian Austin Green is hoping that Megan Fox will decide to call off the divorce. You never know… anything is possible!
The issue of who will get Prince's money sadly continues to grow. His sister and only surviving FULL sibling is going on record saying that Prince had no known will and has asked a Minnesota court to appoint a special administrator to oversee his estate. She said in a court filing that immediate action was necessary to manage Prince's business interests following his death last week and asked that a corporate trust company be named administrator of the estate. Prince owned a dozen properties that are worth about $27 million. The idea is that there is a lot of money to be made for people to take advantage of. Since Prince was and IS such a big deal, his main home could be preserved and become something similar to Graceland.
Shia LeBeouf has to feel bad about this! A man is claiming that he was punched in the face and knocked unconscious by an attacker over the weekend because of the fact that he looks like Shia LeBeouf! The guy was leaving a subway station a little after 8 p.m. when the assault happened. He was hit and was falling down the stairs when he heard the guy say, 'This is because you look exactly like Shia LaBeouf!'" How awful! Violence is never the answer… and why does this guy hate Shia LeBeouf so much?!
