She’s an actress, singer, songwriter, and TV personality, and now 26-year-old "Joyful Noise" star Keke Palmer is taking on a most meaningful role – activist. Keke was taking part in a protest in LA on Tuesday, and video of her having a conversation with National Guard soldiers has gone viral. She said to the soldiers, "You have a president talking about the Second Amendment as a use for people to come out here and use firearms against the people protesting….This is when you and y'all can stand together with the community, with society, to stop the governmental oppression. Period. We need you." One of the soldiers said, "I agree with you." She then asked the soldiers, "March beside us. Let the revolution be televised. March beside us and show us that you're here for us..." While they said they couldn’t leave because they had to protect the peace and businesses, they did at least offer to march down the block through the next intersection. Another protester asked the soldiers to take a knee, which they did, leading the crowd to cheer. Also joining the protest in L.A. on Tuesday were Ben Affleck and his girlfriend Ana de Armas, Logan Paul, Josie Canseco, Travis Barker and Richard Madden. See the video at AceShowbiz.com.

Kim Kardashian wants to help a woman who was shot with a rubber bullet by police during a protest. She saw a picture of the woman’s injuries and tweeted, "This is heartbreaking and so disturbing.

The woman said in a video, "My forehead has a chunk out of it and the doctors couldn't even stitch it because of the debris. My right eye is swollen and took an hour before I could open it. Both of my eyes are messed up from debris that got trapped in them and I have to use numbing drops just to be able to open them." It’s not clear whether Kim has managed to contact the protester yet.

Ruby Rose has left the CW show “Batwoman” after one season, but she won’t simply be replaced with another actress. Instead, the CW is introducing a new character, according to a casting notice reposted on Reddit. The new character - Ryan Wilder - is the complete opposite of Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane.

During an interview a while back that’s just now coming to light, Lena Headey explained there was a scene cut from “Game of Thrones” that would have helped us navigate what was happening with her character during the final season. She said, “We shot a scene that never made it into Season 7, which was where I lose the baby. It was a really kind of traumatic, great moment for Cersei that never made it in.” She added that the moment would have “served Cersei differently” in Season Eight. Um, yeah! Considering all she has ever done in life was for her children, that would have definitely helped us see her story unfold in a whole new light. Read more at Pajiba.com. I guess the creators just weren’t interested in having the final season actually make sense to us.

2) Jay-Z and his associates at Roc Nation have took out a full-page ad in papers across the U.S. for Black Lives Matter to honor George Floyd.

“Glee” actress Lea Michele has been accused by her former co-star, Samantha Marie Ware, of making her life “a living hell” on set. After Lea posted a message in support of George Floyd on Twitter, Samantha responded that she was shocked Lea could support the Black Lives Matter movement when Lea had treated her like such garbage on set that Samantha almost quit Hollywood. Samantha, who played Jane Hayward, said Lea had even threatened to “s-t in my wig.” And if you even think this is a case of “she said, she said,” others who have worked with Lea have backed Samantha - Black Lightning” actor Dabier Snell, who appeared in an episode of “Glee” in 2014, Amber Riley, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” season five competitor Willam Belli, who said Lea treated them as “subhuman,” and other castmembers who have complained. Kind of makes you appreciate your co-workers a little more now, doesn’t it? In light of the controversy, Lea has now lost and endorsement deal with HelloFresh. In a statement, the company wrote, “HelloFresh does not condone racism nor discrimination of any kind. We are disheartened and disappointed to learn of the recent claims concerning Lea Michele. We take this very seriously, and have ended our partnership with Lea Michele, effective immediately.”

Warner Bros has made the 2019 civil rights legal drama “Just Mercy” available to stream for free on digital platforms throughout June in light of the ongoing George Floyd protests. A rep said, “We believe in the power of story. Our film ‘Just Mercy’ is one resource we can humbly offer to those who are interested in learning more about the systemic racism that plagues our society.”

Because the 2021 pageant has been postponed because of coronavirus, the current reigning Miss America, Camille Schrier, will become the first winner to keep her crown for two years. Camille, who won her crown in December, said, “It's definitely incredible. As someone who is a nontraditional competitor in the Miss America organization ... it's kind of on-brand for me to do it this way.” She said while she continues her reign, she plans on helping teachers and students keep the learning going with free STEM videos. Camille, a pharmacy major, made history during the competition because she did a science demonstration for the talent portion of the pageant. And she’ll probably keep making history. She joked, “I realize now that I'm probably going to be a ‘Jeopardy’ question.”
