  • American Pie Star Jason Biggs Launches VILE Twitter rant against Janna Ryan!

    The popular "American Pie" films mixed the very, very raunchy with the sweetness of high school pals who simply wanted to fall in love. And, of course, occasionally defile a freshly baked pastry. These days, franchise star Jason Biggs is aiming some "American Pie" style humor at the Republican's Vice Presidential candidate - and his wife. And while the "Pie" films typically left a pleasant after taste, Biggs' Tweet barrage feels ugly, mean-spirited and not even remotely funny.

    Looks like Jason Biggs is still defiling that pie … if by “pie” you mean “contract with Nickelodeon.” Yesterday Twitchy reported that the “American Pie” actor tweeted about sexually assaulting Paul Ryan’s wife. We know … shocking from an actor who made a name for himself by humping a pie. But Pig Biggs wasn’t done tweeting misogynist filth about political wives. After a disgusting tweet about Ann Romney’s body, he targeted Janna Ryan again by retweeting his wife, Jenny Mollen. ...

    Doesn’t Jason Biggs know that Twitchy is forever? Earlier this week, we called attention to the American Idiot’s knock on Christians and his vile, sexually degrading tweets about Paul Ryan, Janna Ryan and Ann Romney. We also highlighted the mounting pressure on Nickelodeon to fire the actor from his “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” voice gig. Biggs dismissed his critics by tweeting, “You know I put my dick in a pie, right?” And completely misreading the First Amendment, his wife, Jenny Mollen tweeted, “How weird would it be if we all had freedom of speech?

    Twitchy reported earlier today that the most vile tweets from Jason Biggs’ Twitter feed had quietly disappeared, and now it seems there might be a very obvious reason why — Nickelodeon has begun tweeting Biggs’ Twitter handle in promotions for its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, for which Biggs provides a voice. That’s right: kids following Nickelodeon’s @TMNTMaster — an account which boasts nearly 2,400 followers — are literally one click away from the feed that introduced us to, well, this, not to mention a quick bit of Christian-bashing as a follow-up...

    Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB) has seen its viewership drop of late, meaning it can charge less money for the same commercial spot. So, the company’s solution has been simple: run more ads. At Nickelodeon, for example, viewership dropped by just under 30%, while Comedy Central has also lost a smaller number of viewers. Overall, the company increased the amount of air time rose by 9% in 2012, on top of a 7% rise the year before, The Wall Street Journal reports

    Update 9/1: Biggs has deleted his tweet about sexually assaulting Janna Ryan, but other misogynistic tweets about her and Ann Romney remain. Nickelodeon is being pressured to fire actor Jason Biggs after he said he wanted to sexually assault Janna Ryan, the wife of vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The American Pie actor made the comments on Twitter on Wednesday, earning criticism across the political spectrum and calls that he is unfit to provide the voice of Leonardo on Nickelodeon's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. The situation brings up questions of free speech and personal responsibility in the public...

As of this writing, the so-called "mainstream media" has refused to report on the hateful threats issued on the social media site. "I want to murder Ann Romney right now," tweeted "Gregory Martinez."

Continue reading Thatcher, dubbed the "Iron Lady," remains alive, though. Just after 3:30 p.m., a Twitter account called @OfficialSkyNews tweeted 10 times that Thatcher had passed away. However, that account has no official tie to Sky News, and the 10 tweets that the user sent out were the only ones affiliated with the account. Shortly thereafter, the @OfficialSkyNews Twitter feed changed its username to "John Pennington," then "Dean Sutton." On the third change, the user protected his or her...

In fact, in 2008, after the Mumbai attack, the United Nations declared Jamaatud Dawa a terrorist entity.

    LONDON, July 21 (Reuters) - Olympic organisers are "very alive" to the threat of a cyber attack on the London 2012 Olympics, made more challenging because of its evolving nature, senior Interior Ministry officials said on Tuesday. Ticketing systems, the transport network and hotel bookings as well as security are among potential targets. Olympic security officials are also planning for the possible diversion of aircraft to protect airspace around the venues from terrorist attacks, the officials said. The greatest threat to security at the Games is international terrorism, the government's latest "Safety and Security Strategy" report said.

It did not go into further detail on what caused the glitch — the second time in just over a month that the site has been hit by problems. Visitors to the...

    Vice President Joe Biden will take questions from reporters on a White House press call today, and as has been the case in the past, the on-the-record conversation will be embargoed until the end of the call. The curious caveat -- who would write an article during the middle of the call? -- is a product of the post-Twitter presidential campaign, barring reporters from the beloved habit of tweeting remarks in real-time. But it begs the question: If it's going to be in an article 20 minutes later, why can't it be on Twitter right now?

When motorists snapped photos of the strange object and posted them on Twitter, some people became concerned enough to call local police. One man called 911 in Prince George's County because, he said, he was concerned about a relative who lived along the route. Asked by a befuddled dispatcher what the...

    In a video posted online yesterday, Obama took credit for tapping out a perfect, efficiency-maximizing 140-character long tweet (apparently, a 'twoosh') about green energy during a Thursday Twitter Q&A session. Hate to burst your bubble POTUS, but we see an extra space after 'wind' and an extra period right at the start. And isn't "bio fuels" all one word? So, really, it should only be 137-characters long. No twoosh for you!

    Move over, Ashton Kutcher — President Barack Obama is the new "master Tweeter." In an exchange at the end of this week's White House West Wing Week video, Obama jokingly refers to himself as the "twoosh master" after crafting a perfect 140-character tweet. Obama became the first sitting president to hold a Twitter question and answer session Thursday after a campaign event in Des Moines, Iowa. During the session, he responded to a question from @jwarner180 on alternative energy sources using each of Twitter's 140 allowed characters, which he's told in the video is called a "twoosh," or "Twitter swoosh."...

    Twitter is, traditionally, where politicians can go for quick, spontaneous interactions with constituents, as it's truly a democratic forum -- tweets by the people, for the people, arrive in real time. But those expecting such a spontaneous exchange with President Obama when he announced a seemingly impromptu Twitter Q&A on Thursday night were sorely disappointed to find the questions cherry-picked earlier by White House staff. At 4:28 p.m., Obama sent out a rare personal tweet from the White House Twitter account, soliciting questions from followers for what many thought was a sudden interest in public debate over his To-Do List...

    Pakistan blocked the social networking website Twitter for much of Sunday because it refused to remove tweets considered offensive to Islam, said one of the country's top telecommunications officials. The tweets were promoting a competition on Facebook to post images of Islam's Prophet Muhammad, said Mohammad Yaseen, chairman of the Pakistan Telecommunication's Authority. Many Muslims regard depictions of the prophet, even favorable ones, as blasphemous. The government restored access to Twitter before midnight Sunday, about eight hours after it initially blocked access. Twitter spokesman Gabriel Stricker said the company had not taken down any tweets or made any other changes...
