Uber Is Going To Be College Student's Designated Drivers
If you live in the Evesham Township, New Jersey area, consider yourself #blessed. As part of Uber's expansion into new markets, the ride-hailing app has partnered with the township on a new initiative, funded by donors, that will give free rides to drunk users from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. until January 2. The key is that riders must hail Uber from a set of 19 designated bars and restaurants. According to NYDN, Uber is considering working with other towns to create similar projects. (Via: NYDN/NYT)
Adele Smashes Taylor Swift's Vevo Record (Duh), Set To Perform "SNL"
Adele's "Hello" not only inspired fans to revert back to flip-phones, it also dethroned Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video as the most watched Vevo clip in 24 hrs with 27.7 million views. And since it's obviously Adele SZN, Saturday Night Live just announced the singer will be hitting the stage on November 21, with host Matthew McConaughey. (Via: USA Today)
The NYPD Is Boycotting Quentin Tarantino's "Slanderous Cop Fiction"
Quentin Tarantino was the surprise celebrity activist spotted at this weekend's #RiseUpOctober march in support of the protesting against police brutality. In not-so-surprising news, the NYPD is not happy with the filmmaker's comments on police murders. Especially in light of officer Randolph Holder's death last week. "I’m a human being with a conscience. And if you believe there’s murder going on, then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I’m here to say I'm on the side of the murdered. When I see murders, I do not stand by. I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers.”
In response, Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association has called for a boycott of the director’s films. "The police officers that Quentin Tarantino calls "murderers" aren’t living in one of his depraved big screen fantasies – they’re risking and sometimes sacrificing their lives to protect communities from real crime and mayhem," Lynch said. "New Yorkers need to send a message to this purveyor of degeneracy that he has no business coming to our city to peddle his slanderous 'cop fiction. It’s time for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino's films." (via: New York Post)
