- Tattoo artist Franz Stefanik gave someone a tattoo of Drake as Bart Simpson, and BuzzFeed was naturally all over it like stink on you-know-what. The tattoo was drawn from a cartoon Stefanik had posted to his Instagram account last week.
- Nearly 3,000 people, including the musician Austra and Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam (Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale), have signed a petition to keep the rapper Action Bronson from performing at Yonge and Dundas Square as a part of NXNE. The petition argues the rapper ‘s violently misogynistic lyrics (including to a song that is, no joke, actually called “Consensual Rape”) are unfit to be performed in a public space. Festival representatives responded with a statement that advised “those who are offended by an artist” to “check out other Festival showcases.”
- The Toronto Public Library has released its 2014 materials review report. Among the highlights: a DVD of the 2013 film Compliance was retained in the library system’s adult collection, despite complaints that its contents are “disturbing and implausible,” and a religious movie in children’s entertainment drag was moved to the adult DVD holdings.
