Justin Bieber’s Ex-Pastor Carl Lentz Reveals Why He Was Fired: 'I Was Unfaithful in My Marriage'
It seems Justin Bieber’s ex-pastor and Hillsong Church mentor is in hot water: Only one day after the church announced his firing, Carl Lentz revealed he was let go due to infidelity in his marriage. The church’s formal announcement said that it was because of "leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures." Lentz said he is working on rebuilding his relationships with his children and wife, but this isn’t the first relationship that Lentz has had issues with: he had a huge falling out with Justin back in 2018.

Anne Hathaway Apologizes To People With Limb Differences for The Witches Portrayal
In the HBO Max revival of Roald Dahl’s The Witches, the Grand High Witch has a “split hand,” opposed to claws for fingernails like it is said in the book. Anne Hathaway, who plays the Grand High Witch, issued an apology on social media after many criticized the depiction for perpetuating harmful depictions and stigmas for children with limb differences. “I particularly want to say I’m sorry to kids with limb differences: now that I know better I promise I’ll do better. And I owe a special apology to everyone who loves you as fiercely as I love my own kids: I’m sorry I let your family down," she said on Instagram. It’s great to see a classic book come to life in a new adaptation, but it is also important to learn every day and be aware of harmful actions and words. (via Just Jared)
