Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson showed the damage his Necker Island suffered in the wake of Hurricane Irma. The island was devastated. Branson was on the island and got through the storm by staying in a basement with others.
Much of the buildings and vegetation on Necker has been destroyed or badly damaged. But British Virgin Islands Hurricane #Irma story is not about Necker – it is about the tens of thousands of people who have lost their homes and their livelihoods. @virginunite is coordinating aid to local BVI families & communities affected – please donate to help http://www.virgin.com/unite/bvi-community-support-appeal
Here’s the amazing Kristen Bell visiting a shelter in Orlando during the storm, performing for kids who had nowhere else to go.

PewDiePie, one of the biggest YouTubers of all time (he plays video games and makes comments…and millions of dollars doing it) is in deep trouble. He was doing his thing the other day, and called someone (or some thing in the game) a “f******** n-word.” People are calling for YouTube to ban him.
The Emmy Awards are next Sunday, but they do the Creative Emmy Awards a week before the live broadcast – they’re the awards that I guess the show feels aren’t worthy of live TV. Anyway, Leah Remini won her first Emmy for her documentary Scientology and the Aftermath, which exposes the hidden world of Scientology. She thanked her mother, who was in the audience, and forgave her for “getting us into this cult.”
Do we still care about the 50 Shades series? We just got a trailer for 50 Shades Freed, and it looks pretty good.
