This Finding Dory Clip Might Signal A Disney First, Plus More Stories

1. Major News: South Carolina banned abortion after 20 weeks into a pregnancy — even in cases of incest or rape.

7. Equality FTW: Fans are hoping that this scene in Finding Dory shows the first ever Disney-Pixar gay couple.


The scene in question? We see two women standing close together outside an aquarium. Yep, that's pretty much it. So, we're not going on a lot here, people. But as pathetic as it is that a brief animated depiction of a lesbian couple in a children's movie would be an event, it is indeed a big deal. (Read More)

8. A-List: Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are getting divorced.

Amber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp, according to documents obtained by TMZ. The filing came Monday, with Heard citing irreconcilable differences. The couple have been married since February 2015. Depp’s mother died May 20, just days before the divorce filing. (Read More)
