Stormy Daniels shuts down a homophobic heckler in perfect fashion.

Stormy Daniels is continuing to use her 15 minutes of fame for good.

The adult film actress and dancer has a lot more to talk about things besides her alleged affair with Donald Trump. Most recently, she posted a photo to Instagram announcing she was pulling out of a scheduled dance performance at a Florida nightclub after she says an employee used a homophobic slur against a member of her team.

“I will NOT be performing at Goldfingers tonight because the owner called my assistant a ‘fucking faggot’ after asking me to do something not in my contract,” Daniels wrote on her Instagram account. “That kind of abuse will not be tolerated ... When are dipshits gonna learn that I do not respond well to bullies?”


Daniels said she forfeited a $6,800 fee that she would have received for appearing at the club and performing in the “VIP” section -- something she says wasn’t in her original contract agreement. For their part, the Goldfingers club alleges that no employees used the homophobic slur and that the entire incident stems from a contract dispute between Daniels and the club.

“The breach of contract is on Ms. Daniels the reason for her departure is a small one and to save face she fabricated a story about the use of a homophobic remark by one of our staff members As a reason for her departure,” reads a statement from the club ownership. “Our owners, managers and staff firmly disapprove of use of any hate speech to any person, regardless of race, gender, creed and sexual orientation.”

Though Daniels has largely dropped out of the spotlight in recent weeks, her alleged affair with Trump continues to be a major component in Robert Mueller’s investigation of Trump and his 2016 election team.

Trump’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 shortly before the 2016 election. If those payments were directed by Trump (something he denies), it could be a major campaign finance violation, resulting in fines and other penalties that could seriously damage Trump’s presidency.

But whatever comes of that investigation, it’s nice to see Stormy Daniels using her time in public spotlight to stand up for what’s right and shut down what’s wrong.

Hollywood is finally moving closer to equality. The past few years have seen a growing number of films starring, written by and directed by women. There's still a lot of progress yet to be made, of course. But there's one area where women have been kicking butt and taking names for decades: action films. Ironically, action films are stereotyped as the launching pad of the manliest of manly men: Schwarzenegger, The Rock, Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone and so on. But some of the biggest action hits, both critically and commercially, are led by women.

If you're looking to expand your home video library for the holidays or just searching for a great holiday playlist while taking out some healthy aggression, here are 12 of our all-time favorite films featuring strong women front and center.

One in five pregnancies end in miscarriage. It's a sad and heartbreaking experience, but there still is a lot to learn from going through something so tragic. Beyoncé recently shared what she learned from her miscarriages in an "ask me anything" published in the January 2020 issue of Elle Magazine.

A fan asked Beyoncé if she was disappointed she didn't win awards for Lemonade and Homecoming. Beyoncé said her miscarriages helped put it in perspective. "I began to search for deeper meaning when life began to teach me lessons I didn't know I needed. Success looks different to me now. I learned that all pain and loss is in fact a gift," she said in Elle Magazine.

Even though 68% of women in America where size 14 or above, plus sized women tend to draw more heat for the outfits that they wear, especially if those outfits are even remotely racy. Earlier this week, Lizzo was spotted at a LA Lakers game wearing the dress heard round the internet. Dubbed the "thong dress," Lizzo's t-shirt dress was straightforward in the front, but the back featured cutouts featuring her thong and fishnet stockings.

During the game, Lizzo twerked when the Laker Girls danced to her song "Juice," giving the crowd a full view of her ensemble.

The Miss America pageant was started in 1921, but women of color were barred from participating until 1940. It took another 30 years for the first black woman to participate in the pageant in 1970. In 1983, Vanessa Williams became the first black woman to win Miss America. Now, the winners of all four major beauty pageants are all black women.

Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa was crowned Miss Universe, making this the first time in history that Miss America, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss Universe are all black women. Tunzi is the first black woman to win Miss Universe since 2011, when Leila Lopes took home the crown.
