Yeah I don't believe a damn thing from wegotthiscovered. Not saying this isn't true or didn't happen, but use a legitimate source. This website literally makes shit up for clicks.

I was not aware of this, thanks, I will avoid that site in the future.

My rule of thumb is if I haven't heard of the website or publication, and none of the trades confirm that story, it's BS lol. Websites like Vulture, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, and Deadline. They're actual Hollywood trades that folks in the industry also read. If one of them, especially THR, Variety, and Deadline report on it, it's true.

No problem! GiantFreakingRobot is the other one that I see shared often - they do the same thing.

So many sites these days - especially pop culture fluff crap - pump out AI written articles, or copy other sites’ articles verbatim, generate YouTube videos that are nothing more than slideshows with text-to-speech narration, all just nothing more than braindead content for the purpose of framing ads. It’s the shallowest dregs of our society “culture”, the bottom of the barrel to attract the dumbest, most unthinking sheeple whose real lives are literally devoid of substance of any worth.
