Victoria Forward Gave A Self-Serving Apology To Dan Andrews Over That Trespassing Incident

Published

on

The group behind last weekend’s virtual anti-lockdown protest in Victoria has issued an apology to Premier Daniel Andrews after one protester trespassed on the farm of the Premier’s late father. But, not to let a bit of media attention go to waste, Victoria Forward ended their statement hyping up their own lost cause.

The aim was for people to hang a pair of boots on their mailboxes to ‘Give Dan The Boot’, but one protester went way too far by doing so well inside the property of Andrews’ late father. On Tuesday, Andrews brought the issue to light and said “shame on him” in a press conference.

Victoria Forward, which organised the protest, has since responded.

“Victoria Forward was made aware of the connotation of this image […] and had absolutely no role in producing it,” the group said in a statement on Facebook.

“However, we would like to offer Premier Andrews a sincere and unreserved apology for the image – which was out of line, inappropriate, and unacceptable.”

So far, so good.

After then praising their own values, the group added: “We do not endorse the use of personal tragedy for political point scoring.”

Victoria Forward then went on about how most protesters were decent and that “one insensitive action should not detract from these messages other Victorians sent.” Maybe give it a rest for a hot sec, guys.

By the end of their statement, they were 100% back on their shit.

“The Premier may be attempting to use this one, admittedly regrettable image, to distract from the fact that Victorians have rejected his leadership and demonstrated in their tens of thousands; but Victoria Forward will remain committed to engaging the community in positive and legal political discussion and expression,” their statement said.

For reference, the last time Andrews was at that shed, he reminded people yesterday, was “was when I carried my father’s coffin out of it.”

Ugh. Pick literally any other event to milk for your own cause, but please not this one.

The remainder of their statement isn’t even worth repeating in an article about a supposed apology because it’s just self-promotion at this point.

Says a lot about how sorry they really are.

Suzie True – “Bailey”

Published

By

Los Angeles trio Suzie True released their debut EP, Nothing To You, a couple years ago, and they’ve landed at the great Philly-based label Get Better Records, which is putting out their first full-length album, Saddest Girl At The Party, at the end of November.

Today, they’re sharing a new single called “Bailey,” a gooey track about how the right friendships can change your life. It’s an insistent bit of indie-pop, filled with warm blasts of fuzz and some overlapping harmonies. “Falling in love is just so stupid/ We swore that we’d never do it,” Lexi McCory sings on it. “I swear you’re the only one who gets me/ Everyone else makes me feel like i’m crazy.”

“This song was inspired by my friend Bailey who I met when we were in college working at a crisis center together,” the band wrote on Instagram. “They were my first friend who was openly out, and they inspired me to come out as bi to my friends and family. They still actively inspire me to be creative, kind, and the best version of myself I can be.”

Check it out below.

And here’s the album’s previous single “Toothache”:

Dr. Cat Begovic From ‘Dr. 90210’ Is Married to a Bodybuilder

Published

By

The blonde beauty has been married to Binais, a champion bodybuilder, since 2010. The duo marked their 10th wedding anniversary in August with a pair of heartfelt Instagram posts. 

“I never realized how deep our love and our connection could be until I look back and see our journey together and how our souls intertwine into one complete whole,” Cat wrote on Aug. 21. “I cherish what we have and everything we have experienced together. I love you so much.”

On his own page, Binais shared, “I’m so grateful for you and for everything we have experienced these last 10 years. I love you and I’m always here for you.”

Apart from being business partners with Cat, Binais’ Instagram bio states that he’s an author and “spiritual influencer.” The 38-year-old appears to have retired from bodybuilding competitions.

A 2019 interview with GreatestPhysiques.com reveals that the Swede got his start in Judo, becoming one of the youngest Black Belt holders in Montenegro, where he spent his childhood. After competing on the national team, Binais found a new passion: weightlifting.

“After one workout I knew this was something I wanted to focus on,” he said. “I just loved the pump I got, the feeling of being big, the gym atmosphere, the discipline of diet, exercise, and the challenge of deciding when to train, what to train, and how to train.”

Starting in 2009, Binais served as CEO of BMR Sports Nutrition for nearly a decade and purchased the leading bodybuilding publication, Iron Man Magazine, in 2015. He and Cat have one child together, a daughter named Layla.

The entrepreneur told GreatestPhysiques.com that he doesn’t need a lot of equipment to maintain his bulky figure. “Put me on a deserted island with an Olympic barbell and two dumbbells for months and a few cans of protein powder and I’ll still look the same when you see me again,” he claimed.

Tessa Blanchard Talks Hiatus From Pro Wrestling

Published

By

After taking off much of 2020, Tessa Blanchard returned to the ring earlier this month for Warrior Wrestling, losing the Warrior Wrestling Women’s Championship to Kylie Rae.

Going back to January, Blanchard was called out by numerous women’s wrestlers at her backstage behavior over the years, most notably she was accused of saying a racial slur to La Rosa Negra back in 2017 during a tour in Japan. Blanchard has denied that accusation since the beginning. You can read more on that story here.

Shortly after the social media backlash, Blanchard defeated Sami Callihan to win the Impact World Championship — the first woman to hold the title — at Impact Hard to Kill.

The COVID-19 pandemic then hit, and Blanchard was stuck in Mexico with her then fiance, and fellow wrestler, Daga. Impact Wrestling released Blanchard in June due to her reportedly not sending promos in, nor could the two sides agree to how Blanchard could return and drop the title. Her contract was reportedly set to expire that summer anyways.

Earlier today, Blanchard commented on social media about being away from wrestling to focus on her wedding and honeymoon. Tessa also touched on the previous allegations mentioned above: “Racist? That’s not me, that’s never been me.”

“I’ve been away for a while, the main reason for that is to focus on my wedding & honeymoon,” Blanchard wrote. “The past few months I’ve gotten back to the basics & been focusing on the relationships I have with family, friends & myself. The point of this post is because I’m taking back the control of my narrative. I’ve had people weigh in on what I should do, what I should say, what interview to do, where to go…now, I want to listen to what I want and what’s in my heart.

“I am so blessed in so many areas of my life & I am so grateful to have such strong people in my life. & I regained control of that mindset…that I know who I am. At the end of every day I can look in the mirror and say ‘I know that woman, I like that woman, I love who that woman is becoming and what she’s capable of,’ that’s all I need. Racist? That’s not me, that’s never been me, I don’t have a history of being that way, I don’t have a history of using that language & that’s the end of it, it’s just not who I am & I’m tired of being called & my family seeing me be called something so hateful.

“Who I am is a woman that cares deeply about my passion and putting in work. Who I am is a woman that gives 110% at whatever she does whether it was waiting tables, extra curricular school work, the next workout, or in the ring. Who I am is a woman that prefers to be viewed as tough as nails instead of having any form of weakness. Who I am is a woman completely driven by my passion & what I believe God has for me in life. Even with those little details about me, at the end of the day none of it matters…we are each responsible for taking control of our own lives. I’m taking back control of mine. [#SeeYouSoon]”

As noted, earlier this month Blanchard’s image was used in a WWE 2K Battlegrounds video game, but that image has since been removed.
