‘Grey's Anatomy' Showrunner Comes Out Against Sean Spicer on ‘DWTS': ‘It's Not Too Late to Change This Plan'
Add "Grey's Anatomy" showrunner Krista Vernoff to the list of people opposed to the casting of former Trump press secretary Sean Spicer on the next season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."In a message posted on Twitter Thursday night, Vernoff urged the show, ABC and Disney CEO Robert Iger to cut Spicer from the show's lineup. "I deeply abhor this decision by the company I work for and truly love," she wrote. "This man lied daily, to our faces, and made a mockery of our country. This is not cause for celebration or celebrity. It's not too late to change this plan. Please @DancingABC @abc @RobertIger."Representatives for ABC, "Dancing With the Stars" and Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap.Also Read: Sean Spicer Downplays 'Dancing With the Stars' Blowback: 'I Look Forward to Having Some Fun'Vernoff joins a growing number of celebrity critics of the hiring, a list that even includes the show's host, Tom Bergeron. On Wednesday he said he opposed the decision because he wants the show to be "a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations."Bergeron added that he and the show's producers "can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it's their call.

Hong Kong protesters form human chains to call for democracy
Supporters of Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement created human chains on both sides of the city's harbor Friday, inspired by a historic protest 30 years ago in the Baltic states against Soviet control. It was the latest protest in a nearly 11-week-old movement that began with calls to scrap a now-suspended extradition bill and has widened to include demands for full democracy and an independent inquiry into alleged police brutality at protests. Earlier Friday, accountants in Hong Kong marched in support of the pro-democracy movement, while the Canadian Consulate banned its staff from leaving the city on official business after a British Consulate employee was detained in mainland China.

China Buys American Soybeans after Vowing to Boycott U.S. Farm Products
China purchased a comparatively small amount of U.S. soybeans several days ago after promising to boycott U.S. farm products amid deteriorating trade negotiations with the Trump administration.Beijing reached agreements last week to buy 9,589 metric tons of American soybeans for the current marketing year and 66,000 metric tons for the following year, which starts September 1, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture released Thursday.An August 5 statement from China's Ministry of Commerce said Chinese companies would boycott American farm products in response to the Trump administration's heavy tariffs on Chinese products. In May, the White House upped tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent, claiming Beijing had reneged on the previously agreed terms of a trade deal. The U.S. also currently has a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion worth of Chinese high-tech products.In response, China has slapped 25 percent tariffs on tens of billions in U.S. goods, including cars, planes, propane, soybeans, beef, and whiskey. The duties caused a steep drop in American farm exports, and the Trump administration has since compensated farmers up to $28 billions for their losses.Despite apparently breaking its boycott, China, which is the world's largest soybean importer, is still not purchasing anywhere near as many American soybeans as it has in the past. Last year, American sales of soybeans to China dropped 74 percent as Beijing gave its busine

Bill Maher Mocks Rashida Tlaib's Call to Boycott His Show
Bill Maher mocked Representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) Wednesday after she called for a boycott of his program, HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher, in response to his criticism of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement."Some people have one move only: boycott. Cancel. Make-go-away," Maher wrote on Twitter Wednesday. "But here's the thing, the house voted 318 to 17 to condemn the BDS movement, including 93% of Dems. Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party?" Some people have one move only: boycott. Cancel. Make-go-away. But here's the thing, the house voted 318 to 17 to condemn the BDS movement, including 93% of Dems. Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party? -- Bill Maher (@billmaher) August 21, 2019Maher was responding to Tlaib's recent suggestion that his opposition to the BDS movement warranted a boycott of his program. Maybe folks should boycott his show. I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn't work then and it won't now. -- Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) August 17, 2019Tlaib was barred from entering Israel earlier this month over her support for the BDS movement. She was subsequently offered a humanitarian exemption so that she could visit her ailing grandmother but refused to accept it.The freshman Michigan lawmaker first announced her
