    Fox News celebrities: Dean Cain, Kristy Swanson & Kevin Sorbo

    For some reason, Fox News loves to bring on celebrities to comment on political news, but the only “celebrities” they can get are Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, and these three - Dean Cain, Kristy Swanson, and Kevin Sorbo. Check out their Twitter feeds for all things anti-science, racist, homophobic, and transphobic.

    Diane Downs & Ann Rule's "Small Sacrifices"

    Diane Downs & Ann Rule's "Small Sacrifices"

    What a Creep
    Season 24, Episode 7
    Diane Downs

    Diane Downs gained infamy for the 1983 shooting of her three children, one of whom died, in Springfield, Oregon. The case became highly publicized due to the shocking nature of the crime and the subsequent investigation and trial. On May 19, 1983, Diane Downs drove her children to a rural road and shot them at close range. She then drove VERY SLOWLY  to a hospital, claiming that a “bushy-haired stranger” had shot her and her children during a carjacking attempt. However, inconsistencies in her story and evidence led investigators to suspect her involvement in the crime. Anne Rule’s book Small Sacrifices was turned into a TV movie starring Farah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal that garnered huge ratings.

    Kirk Cameron & Candace Cameron Bure & NON-Creep Blue's Clues Steve Burns

    What a Creep
    Season 24, Episode 6
    Kirk Cameron & Candace Cameron Bure

    Kirk Cameron starred in the ’80s sitcom “Growing Pains,” which made him a teenage heartthrob. He was never our guy. We’re Jason Bateman and Michael J. Fox girlies. His sister Candace Cameron Brue starred in “Full House,” TV movies, and more recently “Fuller House” on Netflix.
    At some point in their lives, they got on the Evangelical Christian train, which they then started using as an excuse for their homophobia. They love to talk about how god provides salvation, but they use God for deflection. Let’s talk about it.

    Royal Family Public Relations Fiascos with Kristen Meinzer of the Daily Fail podcast

    What a Creep
    Royal Family PR Fiascos
    Season 24, Episode 5

    With the latest news of an insanely unusual news cycle that, unfortunately, includes Kate Middleton being diagnosed with cancer, we decided to speak to supreme royal expert and friend of the pod Kristen Meinzer of the Daily Fail podcast to talk about what the heck is going on with the House of Windsor. With baffling (or complete lack of?) strategic communications, a frighteningly low number of royals who can pinch-hit while King Charles is convalescing, and novice photoshopping--can this get any weirder?

    "Coyote V. Acme" Warner Bros Discovery's David Zaslav Strikes Aagain!

    "Coyote V. Acme" Warner Bros Discovery's David Zaslav Strikes Aagain!

    What a Creep“Coyote V. Acme Controversy”
    Season 24, Episode 4

    In February 1980, The New Yorker magazine published a satire called "Coyote V. Acme" written by Ian Frazier. The story was about Wile E. Coyote suing Acme, the company that supplied him with the equipment he used to try and catch the Road Runner, for all his injuries over the years. 

    In 1987, the success of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" led to the combination of animation and live actors in this story. However, it wasn't until the 2020s that Warner Brothers hired writer Samy Burch and director Dave Green to bring the project to life. The film was completed in 2022, but now the parent company refuses to release it and instead writes it off for tax purposes. 

    Despite considering other outlets, the $75 million price tag makes it unlikely that Warner Brothers will negotiate another deal. The film's controversy-causing release has caused a media storm. For once, we have no trigger warnings!

    Libs of Tik Tok Chaya Raichik and NON-CREEP Jesse Eisenberg

    What a Creep
    Libs of TikTok
    Season 24, Episode 2

    Libs of TikTok is a far-right social media account run by Chaya Raichik. Basically, its whole schtick is adding hateful commentary to content created by left-wing and LGBTQ+ people on social media platforms.
    Libs of TikTok has been blamed for sparking bomb threats, property damage, shooting threats, written and verbal harassment, and other forms of violence against individuals, hospitals, and schools across the country. The content posted on that account is funneled directly into Fox News, The Federalist, and NewsMax to generate more outrage and stoke hatred toward the gay and transgender community.

Don’t listen if you are conservative and/or like Trump.

The queens of calling out creeps

I love their righteous indignation, fierce feminism, and sense of humor.
