Stephen Colbert Spoofs Alex Jones, Gets Into A Sticky Situation

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert’s spoof Alex Jones-esque character got himself into quite the mess on Tuesday.

In his parody segment “Brain Fight,” Colbert’s ranting host Tuck Buckford grabbed a big tub of Chobani yogurt ― in an apparent reference to the yogurt company that’s suing conspiracy theorist Jones and his site, InfoWars, for allegedly posting vicious fake news stories.

“Buckford” then smeared the yogurt all over his head for the most bizarre reason, before dealing with his unconventional shampoo in an equally strange way.

Student takes university to court for the right to condemn gay marriage

A student has won the right to pursue his former university after saying gay people shouldn’t be allowed to marry.

Felix Ngole was axed from his social care course after posting in a Facebook argument that he doesn’t believe in same-sex marriage.

The 39-year-old, who reportedly believes it is a sin to be gay, was told his views would cause offence by Sheffield University and dropped from his course.

The university said it was concerned his publicly expressed views towards gay people could affect his work as a social worker.

Now a court has ruled that the decision to drop him from the court was disproportionate.

Mr Ngole has now been granted the right to fight the case at the High Court.

He said: “The university claims my views are discriminatory but I am the one being discriminated against because of my expression of Christian beliefs.”

His barrister Paul Diamond argued: “The expression that homosexuality is a ‘sin’, or even use of the strong Biblical term of ‘abomination’, is a lawful religious expression.”

“It is the duty of the court to robustly protect British freedoms.”

The landmark court case could set a precedent on whether views, such as Mr Ngole’s, are reason to bar a person from work or study.

Barrister Sarah Hannett, defending the university’s decision, said that Mr Ngole “posted comments on a publicly accessible Facebook page that were derogatory of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals.”

She added: “The views expressed are likely to undermine the trust and confidence that lesbian, gay and bisexual clients are entitled to have in his professional role as a social worker (and in the social work profession more widely).”

It comes as Tim Farron, a dedicated Christian, revealed he did not believe gay sex is a sin.

The Christian Legal Centre – who come to the aid of people accused of homophobia and discrimination – said: “The university’s treatment of Felix fundamentally violates its responsibilities under human rights legislation.

“The university has failed to protect his freedom of speech … and his freedom of religion.

“Felix is entitled to express his views, especially ones shared by millions of people around the world.”

Christian activists recently took to social media to bully lesbian Christian rock star Vicky Beeching off social media.

The out lesbian Christian singer says she has been forced to take a break from social media after reading messages saying she should be killed, and that she can’t be gay and a Christian.

The star, who came out back in 2014, took to her Twitter account to say she was forced to take a break after reading comments about herself from those who say they are Christian.

She tweeted that she had read comments about herself on a meme featuring her photo which reads: “You may be gay or You may be a Christian. But you cannot be a Gay Christian!”

In another case, a lesbian bishop was told she could be expelled from her job by the United Methodist Church because of her relationship with another woman.

Cop Called To End Kids’ Dance Event Ends Up Teaching Them How To Salsa

This police officer in San Antonio, Texas, has sure got some smooth moves.

When a neighbor called cops out to shut down a children’s dance club event that was being held in a backyard late Saturday, the unidentified officer went off script — and ended up teaching the attending youngsters how to dance salsa.

See how it went down here:

Leslie Sapp, whose daughter was attending the Next Generation Dance Crew event, shared the above footage of the heartwarming moment to Facebook. It’s now going viral.

Instead of shutting it down or even interrupting, the officer asked to play a song and then his song came on, and well, the video speaks for itself,” Sapp told KSAT.

The officer danced with several children and posed with the crew once the song had ended. 

Sapp said the officer had helped alter her daughter’s perception of law enforcers. “As a parent, especially these days, there is a lot of negativity in the world when it comes to cops, and he broke that stereotype,” she said.

HuffPost has reached out for comment.

Sean Spicer Is Surprisingly Candid In Seth Meyers’ Spoof Press Briefing

On Tuesday night’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer gave answers to the questions that everyone’s been dying to ask.

Well, kind of.

Via some crafty editing, Meyers joined a fake press pool to ask Spicer such humdingers as: “Where did you find Steve Bannon?” and “How long until President (Donald) Trump causes the end of the world?”

Spicer replied in a surprisingly candid fashion.

Rabbit In Running To Be World’s Largest Dies On United Flight

All eyes are on United Airlines again after a giant bunny died while “flying the friendly skies.”

Annette Edwards, a giant-rabbit breeder, told TMZ that her 3-foot bunny, Simon, was found dead in the plane’s cargo after a United flight from London to O’Hare International Airport in Chicago on Monday night. Edwards said the 10-month-old, 50-pound rabbit was healthy before getting on the flight, according to The Sun.

Simon was expected to grow enough to be considered the world’s biggest rabbit, Edwards said.

“Simon had a vet’s check-up three hours before the flight and was fit as a fiddle,” Edwards told The Sun. “Something very strange has happened and I want to know what. I’ve sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before.”

Simon’s father, Darius, is over 4 feet long and held the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest rabbit in 2010. Edwards is also a minor celebrity in her own right. She once spent an estimated $16,000 on cosmetic surgery to look like the sultry cartoon character Jessica Rabbit.

Simon was on his way to a new celebrity owner, according to TMZ. It is unclear who the celebrity is, but Edwards told The Sun that the famous individual is upset.

United Airlines landed in the media hot seat earlier this month after security personnel violently dragged 69-year-old passenger David Dao from a flight to make room for crew members. The incident triggered a monthlong public relations nightmare, with trending Twitter hashtags aimed at disparaging the airline. The company even had to pull an ad from the Tribeca Film Festival because people couldn’t stop laughing at it.

A spokeswoman for United Airlines told HuffPost that the company was in contact with the customer. She sent HuffPost the following statement:

We were saddened to hear this news. The safety and wellbeing of all the animals that travel with us is of the utmost importance to United Airlines and our PetSafe team. We have been in contact with our customer and have offered assistance. We are reviewing this matter.
