A new report from the Television Academy lays bare how much work the industry has to do if it ever truly wants to be diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Based on the findings from a survey of 4,128 TV Academy members and 61 governors, the “Industry Data Report” outlines its respondents’ experiences of representation, exclusionary treatment, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policy efficacy.

“Despite continued progress across the industry, members from historically marginalized groups report unfavorable perceptions of their identity representation compared to those from nonmarginalized groups,” the study reads. “This perception was consistent across the industry, regardless of role or peer group, and was even more pronounced for members with intersecting, marginalized identities.”

When asked whether they feel their identity is represented in the industry, the only group with a majority “yes” response was cis white men (69 percent). Forty-seven percent of cis white women respondents feel represented, 21 percent of men of color, 15 percent of women of color, 22 percent non-binary of gender nonconforming folks, and 23 percent of trans folks. Forty-seven percent of straight respondents, 48 percent lesbian or gay respondents, and 28 percent bisexual or queer respondents feel represented. Forty-six percent of non-disabled respondents see themselves reflected in the industry, as compared to 37 percent of disabled respondents.

Academy members from marginalized groups also report encountering exclusionary practices at work, from harassment to microaggressions to lack of career advancement. “Again, members with intersecting, marginalized identities have felt this the most acutely,” according to the survey results.

Most cis WOC (59 percent) and queer (70 percent) respondents have been harassed at work, and a staggering number of cis WOC (87 percent), non-binary or gender non-confirming folks (100 percent), and disabled folks (86 percent) have dealt with microagressions or “subtle forms of bias.” A significant number of cis MOC (35 percent), cis WOC (39 percent), gender non-confirming or non-binary (69 percent), trans (45 percent), bisexual or queer (45 percent), and disabled (36 percent) respondents have turned down work due to issues related to DEI. Meanwhile, the number breakdown for who feels “equitably compensated” relative to their peers in the industry is as follows: 72 percent of cis white men, 41 percent of cis white women, 47 percent of cis MOC, 31 percent of cis WOC, 31 percent of gender nonconforming or non-binary folks, 27 percent of trans folks, 52 percent of straight respondents, 53 percent of lesbian or gay respondents, 40 percent of bisexual or queer respondents, 52 percent of non-disabled folks, and 47 percent of disabled folks.

Clearly, there are a lot of gaps in DEI in the TV industry, yet companies don’t seem to be doing much to address them. “While 72% of responding members across roles in the industry are confident in their knowledge of DEI practices, they report low visibility of actions towards actual improvement or substantive DEI practices in their own places of work,” per the report. “This is particularly the case for structural or process related programs — like embedding DEI in contracts and policy.”

Only 19 percent of respondents reported seeing DEI best practices implemented “either most of the time or always,” and just 15 percent have witnessed the inclusion of DEI protocols in contracts or content mandates/greenlight criteria. Nineteen percent of respondents have seen inclusive hiring practices carried out for crews and/or department heads, 20 percent have seen inclusive production practices, and 24 percent have seen DEI consideration in creative processes.

Obviously, something needs to change — non-white, non-cishet, and disabled TV professionals are not being represented or treated equitably at work. The “Industry Data Report” recognizes this and has outlined actions that need to be taken to improve DEI practices and expectations in the industry. These include holding organizations and individuals accountable for the implementation of DEI planning — “e.g., DEI considerations in contracts and DEI measures in content mandates and greenlight criteria”; creating solutions “prioritizing perspectives of those most impacted, namely historically marginalized folks, especially with intersecting, marginalized identities (e.g., bias mitigation in creative feedback and equitable production hiring practices)”; and ensuring proper communication across companies and the industry as a whole while DEI standards are being executed.

Oscar Mayer Introduces Hot Dog Popsicles

If you enjoy a hot dog, you can have it as a popsicle, thanks to Oscar Mayer, CNN reports.

The company announced it will introduce the “Cold Dog,” a frozen popsicle that tastes like its hot dog with “both refreshing and smokey, umami notes” and a mustard swirl.

The popsicle comes after lovers of the food brand asked for a poll, and followers of the Instagram account stated this was a “genius” idea.

After the overwhelming fan excitement for our beloved Cold Dog, it was a no-brainer to make this hot dog-inspired frozen pop a reality,” said Anne Field, an Oscar Mayer spokesperson, said in a press release.

The frozen weiner isn’t available nationwide just yet. Right now, you can find it in Long Beach, New York City, New Orleans, and Alpharetta, GA at Popbar locations for just $2.

Oscar Mayer is known for making shocking food items. A bologna face mask was also introduced by the company owned by Kraft earlier this year that sold out on Amazon.

Charlie Sheen Settles Lawsuit With Ex-Girlfriend Who Claims He Exposed Her To HIV & Agrees To Pay $120K

Charlie Sheen settled a 2017 lawsuit that accused the actor of exposing an ex-girlfriend to HIV. As a result, he has agreed to pay $120,000.

According to TMZ, the 56-year-old agreed to pay a woman listed as “Russian émigré” in court documents $120,000 over 12 months in $10,000 increments.

The woman states she met Sheen in September 2015 and had unprotected sex with him for the first time in October of that same year. Subsequently, the “Two and a Half Men” actor shared his HIV status after their first unprotected encounter.

When asked why he didn’t tell her about his status, Sheen responded that it was “none of her f***king business,” the court filing stated.

The unknown woman also claims that the father of five gave her “medication aimed to prevent her from contracting HIV,” Huffington Post reports.

The filing also states that Sheen told her that the antiviral drugs were unnecessary and “convenient rumors of the medical community.”

On His HIV Status

Sheen shared his HIV status in 2015 while Matt Lauer interviewed him on the “Today” show. Shortly after, his ex-fiancé Scottine Ross sued him for assault and battery, stating he failed to tell her about his HIV status.

Speaking with Piers Morgan in 2016, Sheen said he hadn’t told 25 of his sex partners of his status because it was used against him.

The only times I didn’t tell them was because the last 25 times they used it against me and used my medical condition for their own folly and financial gain,” Sheen told Morgan. “Here’s the great news. No one has been infected by me. No one.

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Taurean Prince Arrested On Fugitive Warrant For Drug & Gun Charges

Got ’em! Minnesota Timberwolves forward Tauren Prince was arrested in Miami this week for a fugitive warrant stemming from a traffic stop back in May.

According to authorities, Prince was stopped in Dallas due to an expired registration and police reportedly found two handguns, a THC vape pen and a container of marijuana inside the vehicle. Prince was charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.

After nearly three months, police issued a warrant for the NBA star’s arrest after test results found that the vape pen contained 1/100th of an ounce of THC. Taurean Prince was taken into custody at Miami International Airport on Thursday night.

Prince’s attorney Kent Schaffer released a statement to PEOPLE saying:

Apparently in the last week and a half they issued a warrant for his arrest because they recovered 1/100th of an ounce of THC, which is probably the smallest amount you can have.”

The only reason we knew was because he was going out of the country for vacation. He was in the airport and his name came up showing that there was a warrant and they took him into custody.”

After Tauren’s arrest, Schaffer stated that the baller was the legal owner of the firearms found by authorities, and said the situation is “unnecessary and embarrassing,”

It should not have been handled in the manner that  it was, its totally unnecessary and embarrassing, but we predict that this case is going to be dismissed in due course.”
