Facebook accused of showing ‘true and ugly colors’ with Wuhan lab story ban Facebook on Thursday was ripped by British politicians for “showing its true and ugly colors” with its ban of reports on whether COVID-19 came from a lab in Wuhan — and for reversing course only after the theories became “fashionable with the liberal elite.” The social media giant has long quashed reports questioning if the virus leaked from the Chinese lab — including slapping “False Information” warnings on an op-ed that ran in The Post last year, long before the contagion was officially declared a pandemic. It eventually issued an all-out ban of such posts, claiming the theories had been “debunked” — only to lift it this week when President Biden ordered US intelligence agencies to investigate claims long touted by his predecessor, President Trump. “I think it is absolutely contemptible and it shows their commitment to democracy is an incredibly thin veneer over their commercial interests,” UK Member of Parliament Bob Seely told the Daily Mail Thursday of Facebook’s sudden about-face. “So many big tech firms are showing their true and frankly really ugly colors,” he said. --Facebook shows 'true and ugly colors' with Wuhan stories ban: UK pols --https://nypost.com/2021/05/27/facebook-shows-true-and-ugly-colors-with-wuhan-stories-ban-uk-pols/ -RETRIEVED-Thu May 27 2021 20:04:50 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)

Women accuse acting coach of holding auditions for fake stripper roles on popular show Multiple women have reportedly accused a nationally-known acting coach of asking them to make audition tapes for the role of a stripper for a show on the Starz cable network. However, the primetime TV series had no such role on the program. Actresses from Los Angeles, Houston and Atlanta have alleged that Troy Rowland told them he was working on the set of “Power,” and that the casting director needed someone to fill the role of a stripper named Keisha. Janika La’Shae told WAGA, the Fox–owned TV station in Atlanta, Rowland allegedly told her she’d be paid $15,000 an episode and that she’d in New York for five weeks to film. Several women who sent in audition tapes later learned from the casting director of “Power” that there was no such role in the drama and that Rowland has never worked on the set of that TV series. Another woman who remained anonymous told by WAGA she felt “bamboozled” and “violated.” She has filed a complaint with the federal trade commission accusing Rowland of impersonation, coercion and fraud, according to the station. Fox News has reached out to Rowland for comment but did not hear back before publication. --Women accuse acting coach of holding auditions for fake stripper roles on popular show --https://nypost.com/2021/05/27/women-accuse-acting-coach-of-holding-auditions-for-fake-stripper-roles-on-popular-show/ -RETRIEVED-Thu May 27 2021 20:03:44 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)
