Viola Davis, speaking with Jimmy Fallon last night, said that she embarked on what was intended to be a 28-day juice cleanse challenge with her co-stars from the new Steve McQueen movie, Widows. As can be expected with those ungodly cleanses, Viola bailed after just two days.

The idea was spawned by a makeup artist on set, who thought that the crew could survive on liquids and meditation for nearly a month. “Let me tell you something, I was in the damn jacuzzi one day, and my niece called, she pissed me off so damn bad...”After the run-in with her niece, Viola decided to comfort herself with McDonald’s burgers and vodka. Honestly, who among us, as survivors of the early aughts, has not started one of those hokey, overpriced cleanses after catching a deal on Groupon and reading about “toxins” which need to be “flushed” from our bodies by starvation? Which makes no sense, scientifically, but I remember once reading on a website which rhymes with “boop,” the nonsense that the body is actually traumatized by chewing and poor diet, and we need to occasionally allow it rest... by not eating. Nope!

Teen delinquent Bhad Bhabie was involved in an altercation with her white rap foremother Iggy Azalea, a melee which resulted in Iggy getting a drink tossed in her face. This all occurred Wednesday night, at the Fashion Nova launch party for Cardi B. Bhad Bhabie posted on Instagram: “Bye broke bich,”a nd “Bye hoe. Glad u left wit a bag cuz u certainly ain’t making no money from music anymore. It’s simple. Don’t talk all sorts of s—t on the internet n come up to me like u my friend. Some of these hoes like u fake n 2 faced as f—k vbut I’m NOT that bich.”

Okay, can anyone confirm the contents of the liquid which Bhabie tossed at Iggy? It shouldn’t have been alcoholic as she isn’t of legal drinking age. The shocking act of white on white violence was, incidentally, caught on film. In the footage, Bhabie, who is standing a safe distance from Iggy, kind of projectiles the cup of liquid over a few people and in Iggy’s general direction. A percentage of it happened to hit her. Iggy also responded on the internet, claiming she’s too old to fight teenagers in clubs, which is understandable. Bhabie’s malice towards Iggy is owed, ambiguously, to her “talking shit on the internet,” which is literally what the internet is for. I see not a single person to root for here.

Correction: An earlier version of this story identified a talk show host as Jimmy Kimmel. He is in fact Jimmy Fallon, a different white man.
