What You Need To Know About Florida’s Defamation Bill

bill asserts that claiming someone has discriminated against another person or group because of their identity will be considered “defamation per se” — meaning the accuser could find themselves facing costly legal bills for simply expressing their opinion.The bill does not appear to address what happens if the alleged discrimination is a matter of fact or public record — rather, just making an accusation of discriminatory behavior appears to be enough to land them in trouble legally.Under the bill:Under current defamation and libel laws, a subject must prove that a speaker or journalist acted with “actual malice.”This typically makes it harder for public figures, such as celebrities, to sue for defamation or libel, as they must prove the person they are suing either knew the information wasn’t true or demonstrated “reckless disregard” for its falsity.But now those in the public eye who find themselves accused of discrimination have nothing to fear — because the bill redefines what constitutes a “public figure.”The bill also eliminates the requirement that a person accused of discrimination prove their accuser acted with “actual malice” in cases where “the allegation does not relate to the reason for his or her public status.”Essentially, it means that it’s more likely that anyone making an accusation alleging discrimination will be found guilty and fined when the case goes to court.As reported by The New Republic, a person may not be considered a “public figure,” even in a limited context, if their fame or notoriety stems from:For example, if the bill becomes law, a podcaster who rants about gay marriage and calls LGBTQ people “diseased,” “perverse,” or makes other disparaging remarks could sue any person or entity

Brutal parody of ‘racist’ Jason Aldean’s ‘Try That in a Small Town’ goes viral

a pithy parody of country superstar Jason Aldean’s divisive ditty “Try That in A Small Town” — a song that has come under fire for so-called “pro-lynching” lyrics.The 35-year-old Knoxville, Tennessee, musician, whose real name is Adeem Maria, titled his takedown “Sundown Town.” He annihilates Aldean’s anthem with cutting lines such as: “We got no protests or civil unrest/Never took no goddamn COVID test and we can all read but we don’t do it/Driving trucks valued higher than a new Corvette/Yeah, we all wear boots and we love to shoot and we move for the cops to stop people like you.” Aldean’s original has taken a brutal beating from online critics for allegedly promoting racism and violence.The troublesome tune was released in May, but was thrust into the spotlight after the recent release of its music video. The “Small Town” video features footage from BLM demonstrations and other protests, and depicts Aldean posing in front of an American flag draped over the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, Tennessee.

Aldean denied the song “Try That in a Small Town” has any racist intentions or undertones. The tune describes how rural America will not accept the same riotous behavior and criminality that has besieged many urban areas since 2020.“These references are not only meritless but dangerous,” Aldean said, after criticism of his use of the Maury County Courthouse in Columbia, Tenn., as a backdrop. A white mob hanged Henry Choate there in 1927, according to one media critic of the music video, Ashton Pittman of the Mississippi Free Press.Aldean notably stood firm when he was harshly criticized from the left after his wife posted photos of their children in anti-President Biden attire in 2021.On “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Boone said country music has fallen in stature as of late.“I can’t believe it’s country music,” he said.

‘Little Mermaid’ slammed by black activist for ‘erasing’ slavery: ‘Dangerous’

Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Caribbean Slavery, and Telling the Truth to Children,” Ryder points out that the movie appears to take place in the Caribbean in the 18th century during a time of African chattel slavery — yet the islanders depicted in the film seem to live in a world free of this inhumanity.“In this setting, I do not think we do our children any favors by pretending that slavery didn’t exist,” he wrote. “For me Disney’s preference to try and wish the inconvenient truth away says more about the adult creatives than it does about children’s ability to work through it.”Though he acknowledged that the movie is a fantasy and doesn’t necessarily need to be historically accurate, he said that Disney shouldn’t be “encouraging historical amnesia.”“But the total erasure and rewriting of one of the most painful and important parts of African diasporic history, is borderline dangerous, especially when it is consumed unquestioningly by children,” he added.Ryder proposed that Disney could have instead set the live-action film in Haiti after slavery was overthrown, with Ariel meeting Prince Eric in the wake of real racial harmony and not sacrificing historical accuracy.“We owe it to our children to give them the most amazing fantastical stories possible to help their imaginations grow,” Ryder said.
