James Gunn Shuts Down Troll Who Accused Him of Casting His Wife in DC Movies
“I had nothing to do with the casting,” he wrote.
James Gunn has been very active on Twitter ever since he became the co-chairman and co-CEO of DC Studios, giving fitting replies to trolls and answering the queries of enthusiastic DC fans.
Most recently, he shut down a DC fan who had accused him of casting his wife, Jennifer Holland, in every DC project. Some fans have even gone as far as to say that he is misusing his authority as DC Studios’ co-chairman and co-CEO to give his wife more opportunities.
However, that didn’t seem to be the case, as Gunn explained in his recent tweet of Friday, March 17, 2023. In his tweet, he mentioned that the only DC movie he has ever cast his wife in was the 2021 movie The Suicide Squad, which marked Holland’s DC movie debut.
He continued, “I had nothing to do with the casting of any other movie – anything else was shot a year or so ago while I was deep in Vol 3 [Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3]. But I know some of you are deeply in need of reasons to hate.”
Gunn’s befitting reply garnered a lot of positive responses from his fans and supporters, with one user writing, “The ones who love to hate will kick and scream all day long, but the rest of us are eagerly awaiting to hear more about the upcoming slate of projects.”
Similarly, other Twitter users praised Holland’s performance as Emilia Harcourt in DC projects. One wrote, “She’s a damn good actress and deserves her spots, brother. She kicked ass physically and emotionally in The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker.”
Furthermore, one Twitteratti mentioned that it’s so weird of people to claim that Gunn put his wife in DC projects when he wasn’t the co-chairman and co-CEO of DC Studios. “Do you think Shazam was filming in the 4 months since his ascent?” the user added.
Gunn and fellow filmmaker Peter Safran were named the Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officers of DC Studios in late October 2022. Before that, Gunn only had control over who he cast in the project he directed.
As Gunn mentioned in his tweet, he only cast his life partner on The Suicide Squad. Holland’s other DC project appearance was on the HBO series Peacemaker, a sequel series to The Suicide Squad. And the series required Holland’s character of Emilia Harcourt.

To conclude, fans still have mixed opinions about Holland’s appearances in future DC projects, but most are favorable due to her amazing portrayal of the character.
How did the trolls start in the first place?
Gunn’s professional life mixed with his personal life when it was reported that he was pushing to include his wife in future DC movies. Holland also reportedly has a cameo as Emilia Harcourt in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, releasing on March 17, 2023.
This news angered the already furious DC fans, who began to troll Gunn and Holland on Twitter. For instance, one fan wrote, “Literally the only person with job security at DC and for absolutely no other reason than the fact that she’s James Gunn’s wife.”
“James Gunn’s wife greatest accomplishment is becoming James Gunn’s wife. That woman has more appearances in the DCEU than superman, batman, Wonder woman, Cyborg, Lex Luthor, Joker, Dwayne Johnson, Deathstroke…etc,” another user wrote.
Likewise, one tweeted, “It’s nepotism to its core. Rumors James Gunn put edits into Shazam 2 to include his wife. He’s basically gutting the entire DCEU, but more than likely will find a role for his wife when she literally can’t nail down a part outside of James Gunn’s umbrella.”
On March 15, 2023, Gunn posted a picture of himself alongside Holland and others from when they were heading to the world premiere of the upcoming DC movie Shazam! Fury of the Gods, aka Shazam 2. “On the way to the #ShazamMovie premiere,” he captioned.
One hater replied to the tweet and wrote, “Stop putting your wife in every DC project.” This eventually caught the attention of Gunn, leading him to give the befitting reply — which is mentioned above.
Mathew Fraser and Fiancee Sammy Moniz Announce They’re Pregnant with a Baby Girl
Mathew Fraser is going to be a dad for the first time!
Congratulations are in order for Mathew Fraser, aka Mat Fraser, and his fiancee, Sammy Moniz, who have announced that they are expecting their first child together.
The engaged couple took to their Instagram handle to share the good news on Thursday, March 30, 2023. They made a joint Instagram post by sharing a picture in which Fraser’s hands were on Moniz’s baby bump, and Moniz held a sonogram image.
The life partners also revealed the baby’s gender and due date in the caption. They announced that their first child will be a girl, and the due date is August 2023. “It is a girl. We are obsessed with her already and can’t wait to meet her in August,” Moniz wrote.
Fans and fellow athletes were quick to congratulate the couple, with many expressing their excitement for the future arrival of Baby Fraser-Moniz. For instance, one friend of the duo wrote, “BABY FRASER. Oh my heart, I am so happy & excited for you.”
“I’m not crying, you’re crying!!! I’m so happy for you both. You’re gonna make awesome parents!!!” commented another friend.

Furthermore, one Instagram user wrote, “Fittest baby on the way,” referring to the fact that Fraser and Moniz take great care of their health and work out regularly.
Fraser and Moniz’s announcement comes as a surprise to many, as they have been relatively private about their relationship. But as the due date approaches, fans will undoubtedly receive some updates from the couple and their journey into parenthood.
That said, let’s have a brief look at the future parents’ relationship. After looking at Moniz’s Instagram handle, we found out that she and Fraser have been in a romantic relationship since 2015 — they officially began dating on July 27, 2015.
And on July 27, 2021, Moniz marked their sixth dating anniversary on Instagram with a short-yet-sweet caption. She posted a picture with her fiance and wrote, “6 years. wowwy wow I love this life by his side. Full of adventure, laughs, cribbage and a hell of a lot of hard work.”
Moniz recently took to her Instagram handle to wish Fraser on his 33rd birthday on January 25, 2023. In the caption, she mentioned that they have been celebrating birthdays together since they were 25 years of age, proving they have been together since 2015.
Since they began dating, the two have always been together and supported each other in every step of their lives. And after dating each other for years, they finally decided to take a big step in their relationship and got engaged.
But, it’s currently unknown when and how Fraser proposed to Moniz as those details have been kept hidden by the couple. But the engagement ring on Moniz’s ring finger – also visible on her pregnancy announcement post – proves that the duo is engaged.
Besides being engaged, there are also rumors of the couple being married. The rumors of them being married might have started when Amazon referred to Moniz as Fraser’s wife in the ‘About the Author’ section of her cookbook Feeding the Frasers.
The ‘About the Author’ section read, “she [Sammy Moniz] is also the wife of five time champion Mat Fraser.” However, neither Fraser nor Moniz confirmed they shared the wedding vows. So, it’s better to assume they are only engaged and not married.
Blake Gray’s Brother Austin Gray Accused of Making Rape Threat to TikToker Ivy Wren
TikToker Ivy Wren alleges getting rape threats from Blake Gray
TikTok influencer Ivy Wren has accused Austin Gray, the brother of fellow TikTok star Blake Gray, of making rape threats against her.
In a recent TikTok video posted on March 16, 2023, Ivy detailed that Austin allegedly made rape threats to her. She captioned the video, “This was in February 2022, and I have waited to make this because I wanted to protect his privacy but honestly people need to be aware.”
The TikTok star detailed her experience with Austin, claiming that they had been in a casual relationship and had gone out drinking with a group of friends.
According to Ivy, on the night, she and Austin were in an Uber with one of her girlfriends. She and her girlfriend were all having a casual conversation with the driver. “We were like oh your wife is such a lucky and being like friendly flirty with him,” she said.

Ivy noted that when they all came out of the Uber, Austin slammed the door as hard as he could and began yelling at her for embarrassing him.
Austin allegedly screamed at Ivy in the parking lot of her apartment complex, saying, “Why the fuck did you say that, you are embarrassing me.”
Ivy tried to calm him down, but he continued to freak out, causing her friend to become terrified and hide in another room.
Ivy described how Austin was highly drunk and that she was concerned about his ability to drive home safely. She took his keys and hid them, which made him even angrier.
He stormed into her apartment and started breaking things. Ivy’s friend decided to leave, feeling uncomfortable with the situation, and things escalated from there.
Ivy revealed that she had confided in Austin about being a survivor of multiple sexual assaults, but he had turned it around and used it against her, saying that if she had let other people do that to her, she should let him do it too. He then allegedly threatened to rape her.
Her words on the TikTok video were, “I had opened up to him [Austin} being a survivor of multiple sexual assaults which he then turns around and throws up in my face and basically says, ‘Why would you let other people do that and won’t let me do that,’ and he fallout says that I am going to rape[whisper] you.”
Ivy played an audio clip in the TikTok video where Austin can be heard asking for his keys and her responding that he cannot drive drunk. his voice can then be heard saying, “I am gonna rape you.”
The video has since gone viral, with many users expressing their support for Ivy and calling for Austin to be held accountable for his actions. Some fans seem to support Austin too. Neither Austin nor Blake has commented publicly on the accusations. Austin has recently set his Instagram account to private.
One of the fans showed concern for Ivy as she commented, “wow.. i’m sorry that happened.. drunk or not how do those words come out of your mouth”
While another fan supported Austin. He wrote, “I know this is not an excuse but he was drunk and probably would say anything at that point to get his keys.. she was trying to help him by refusing to give him his keys got it.. but why record someone when they are not in a right state of mind?”
“… just my POV and this is not me defending him, I don’t even know the dude.. I’m just saying before y’all jump on this bandwagon.. consider everything from all POV,” he added.
Is Emma Chamberlain Charging $10K for an Instagram DM? Know the Truth
$10,000 for a DM?!
Emma Chamberlain and her brand are under fire, and the influencer is facing massive backlash online.
It was recently revealed that Chamberlain was allegedly charging $10,000 for a personalized Instagram DM. This sent fans and followers of her into a frenzy mode, complaining that the whole ordeal was irrational.
They noted that Chamberlain was misusing her fans and that it was a scam to charge $10,000 for a simple personalized message on Instagram. After the influencer came to know about the backlash, she and her team shared a statement.
Here is everything we know about it.
Emma Chamberlain allegedly charged $10,000 for Instagram DM
On March 18, 2023, Layla Saliba posted a screenshot of Chamberlain’s site on Saturday with the opportunity to purchase a “Personal Thank You Note From Emma in Instagram DM!” for $10,000. The screenshot also revealed the store’s option for monthly payments, which offered a payment schedule of $902.58 for a year.
She questioned why Chamberlain was demanding 10K for an Instagram DM and noted that it was insane to do so. Soon, the tweet went viral and started spreading around like wildfire.
Since then, Chamberlain’s web store has been under development. Following the tweet, Chamberlain’s reps sent a statement to BuzzFeed News, calling the allegations that she was selling DMs for $10,000 “false and inaccurate.”
Chamberlain was unaware of the post, according to her reps, who claimed it may have been a test. Buzzfeed News also reached out to Saliba, who said she initially believed the $10,000 advertisement for the message on Chamberlain’s website was an error.
She said, “Nothing against her [Chamberlain], but I’m a WOC working multiple jobs in grad school and I just got tired of someone who was very wealthy complain about how hard their life is,”
The response from Emma Chamberlain and her brand
Soon after the backlash, Chamberlain’s merchandise company, Cozak Inc, issued a statement on their website. They claimed that it was incorrect how the influencer was charging $10,000 for a personalized Instagram DM.
Cozack was secretly testing a potential rewards program tied to her merch in 2018. In testing, they produced an extravagant reward level that was never activated and wasn’t meant to be.
As they were only intended for internal testing and not for sale or reward, Chamberlain never implemented any of these reward ideas. They believed that material was activated and indexed by Google’s SEO indexing engine, then found by a person who started disseminating it online.
Cozak asserted that this was never disclosed to the public, and it was never intended to be bought or sold. They defended Chamberlain and said she did not realize this was that the test program was never visible on the home page or product listing site.
At last, they wrote, “With the internet’s tendency to create false narratives around sensationalized stories we wanted to provide you with the truth firsthand and from the source. The site is currently down for internal review.”
Chamberlain also gave a statement regarding the situation to E! News on March 21, 2023. She explained that when she got comments about selling DMs for $10,000, she believed it was a scam.

She never offered to sell a DM, so she thought the claims were fake. She said, “People were saying this was for sale on my merch site, so I checked the site to see if it had been hacked and couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary.”
Regardless, she reached out to Cozack to look deeper into the matter. She said, “I immediately got in touch with my merch company Cozack who further investigated and put the site under construction while looking into the issue.”
Emma Chamberlain’s net worth
Chamberlain initially started with YouTube in 2017, after which her fame skyrocketed. Soon, her quirky yet fashionable style caught the eyes of designers and brands who endorsed her.
She then became the “it girl” for Vogue and many other brands. At just 21, Chamberlain has a massive influence in the fashion and makeup industry.
Similarly, she has her own brands as well. As of 2023, her estimated net worth is approximately $12 million. Her net worth includes endorsements, fashion brands, her company, podcast, writings, YouTube, and public appearances.
