‘Big Mouth’ Brings in New Series Writer Ayo Edebiri to Replace Jenny Slate As Missy

Back in June, actress Jenny Slate announced that she would be departing her role as the character Missy on Netflix’s animated series Big Mouth. The decision came after reflection on her role in the show in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, when she realized that it was inappropriate and unfair for her to voice a Black character, taking away a role that could and should go to a Black actress. Now Jenny Slate’s replacement has been found, and Big Mouth creators didn’t have to go far to...

This morning at 5:55, I paid my respects to the empty plinth of the Hans Christian Heg statue.

I didn't insert the flags — only took the photograph. Notice the bent up portion of the bronze in back. That damage occurred when the statue was attacked last week:The memorial statue was beheaded and thrown in Lake Monona by rioters, incensed by the arrest of a member of Black Lives Matter as demonstrations in Madison turned violent in June 2020,[5][6] despite it being of a Union soldier and abolitionist.... On the morning of 24 June, someone painted "Fire Matt Kenny" on the base of the Heg s...
