Captain America: Civil War is officially the highest grossing movie of 2016.
“Captain America: Civil War holds the title of 2016’s highest-grossing movie, raking in a grand total of $981.9 million worldwide.”
While there is some trepidation the movie won’t go much higher than $400 million domestically (the only other movie to gross more than $400 million domestic, outside of the original Avengers, was Iron Man 3), it’s hard to say the movie wasn’t a financial success.
“Civil War is on track to become the seventh superhero movie to gross more than $1 billion worldwide. It just needs a paltry $18.1 million to break into the club that includes The Avengers, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Dark Knight.”
Larry Wilmore upset the entire country when he went to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner and referred to President Barack Obama as “my n*gga.” Another shot he took was directed at Don Lemon, who quickly fired off a middle finger to Wilmore’s dig. While it’s all fun and games on stage, CNN, apparently, wasn’t laughing. There might be a chance that Wilmore may never be featured on the channel again.
“Wilmore was scheduled to appear on Lemon’s show the evening of Wednesday, May 4, a few days after the speech. But that appearance was abruptly canceled by a CNN producer shortly beforehand under the guise of needing to cover ‘politics’ and to focus on the ‘Indiana primary’ (which had ended more than 24 hours earlier). Wilmore was never rescheduled.” “I know a thing or two about cable news … I know that they literally have blacklists,” said Uygur.”

Last week, Texas Rangers’ Rougned Odor socked Toronto’s Jose Bautista in the face after Bautista tried to take Odor out while sliding into second base. The punch was replayed on social media and a topic of discussion amongst ESPN analysts for days. Heim Barbecue decided to reward Odor’s punch with free food for life.
“Heim Barbecue in Fort Worth, Texas, has offered him free food for life. Yes, this man will eat free brisket and ribs for the rest of his life because he landed one haymaker on Bautista for a hard slide into second.”
