  • Just shaking the weekend off. I saw a small group of people for the first time in a year. I think I actually missed the small talk.

    • @George Christiansen😚

    • @u r vermin shh I see a waskilly wabbit I'm trying to bait it with catfish chum.

    • @u r vermin I desired your attention sir

    • @George Christiansen then why comment

    • Thank you Phillip, for, from my perspective, doing your darndest' to not be biased unlike other ne mentioned pas news outlets.

  • They say that Billie Eiliish is Lil Xan. Her name says it all? Bil-lie. Eil= lie.

  • Billie's songs are a joke

  • meh... both men and women are body shamed and pressured.. Grow up.

  • I am happy to see that Phil is transitioning well

  • Douche bag? Go harder than that.

  • Idk, Billie can dress however she wants. Just seems weird to me that she’s “combating female objectification” with now dressing exactly how the rest of the young female pop stars have been dressing since the ‘80s. That’s like a dude saying “im combating misogyny by whistling at women when they walk by. I’m doing it to expose the issue!” It’s like this weird contradiction.

  • Why is 'whore' blurred out but 'slut' isn't....but the word 'whore' can be read out loud?

  • Heavenly Father I pray that you keep the person reading this alive, safe, healthy and financially blessed ✝️

  • I love how Billie just doesn't take any crap from anyone.

  • As an australian (and a desi person) it's honestly fcking gross how the australian government dealt with the issue. Just place a travel ban in general like bruh

  • First and foremost its sad when anyone passes for any reason. I'd like to point out that while India is having alot of covid cases which in turn makes it have more deaths. 98.99% of people who get covid are NOT dying from it. 219K / 19.9M = .0011 x x100 = 1.1%. Life is never 100% whether its cancer, accident, murder, famine, old age, or even covid. At what percentage will it take for you to take your normal lives back.

    • So we should stop fighting against COVID because people die of cancer and other things? Kinda stupid logic my dude.

  • Maybe I'm just to old to understand...(only being 34??) the Billie situation but it seems like she doesn't understand what she is saying and she just is bitching." I don't like people saying they are happy for me....I don't like people saying they hate me" do u want. You sound like you are just so unhappy yourself and your body that you just can't take any sort of compliment or any sort of criticism! You take both, even the good, and make it into hate and take it into you because you hate yourself so much?! Or is that just my old brain thinking for these victim kids of 2021?

  • The tacit computer intuitively scrub because open customarily bake unlike a strange cement. encouraging, cautious epoch

  • Pleas don’t tell me she is going to be one of those that they’re career becomes only about talking about body positivity and that stuff

  • Go Phillip it's ya' birthday!

  • You turn me on and you're my role model sxephil

  • WAY too weak of a sentencing. He ENSLAVED that man.

  • 7:55 Ah yes, welcome to another episode of "if you're against ANYTHING that has a female in it, you're anti-women!1!1"

    • Lmao women use this excuse all the time ffs

  • Um I'm not sure what happened to my previous comment. What I said was that ALL body shaming is evil and is on the same level as other phobias and isms. However, Billie is a colossal hypocrite because she shames men with small penises and that is 100% socially acceptable in even supposedly "progressive" circles. So she is far from body positive.

  • I'm sorry but the "hot tub stream" meta is purely sexually motivated. You wanna have a chat with your follows have a chat. There so many genuinely good female streamers who are funny and talented but they get outshined by cleavage and white bread personalities.

  • Behave yourself and make up your mind BE she's conformed to the Hollywood woman, do it if you want but don't preach to the masses!

  • The first story holds teeth today because yesterday a creepy old guy didn't take my stone cold bitch as a "shut up" but he took it as a challenge and continued to comment on my tight jeans and crop top. Super annoying

  • I'm proud that Billie Eilish feels offended by both being & Not being objectified. Proof that no matter what, men can't ever do anything proper when it comes to modern feminism. I also like how Phil totally overlooks the very fitting "Don't be stupid, stupid" comment.

  • no wonder i stopped keeping tabs on your channel, your takes are terrible and just serve to appease your community.

  • isn't Billie the same person that went on the offensive rant about "ugly dudes"??? like who is she to cry about people talking about her appearance. it's disgusting

    • @u r vermin

    • @Henry Mudgett okay i'm sorry but you're literally just wrong lol. look up "billie ugly guys" it's literally right there lmfao she is specific talking about guys looks and shaming them for it. or what about when she said "people who wear vans.. small d*ck energy" lmfao literally shaming men for the size of their genitalia but ok

    • No she didn’t talk about “Ugly Dudes” she just talked about certain guys not respecting boundaries and acting unnecessarily perverted towards women even when the woman makes clear she’s disinterested.

  • Wow Dr Osaoji it's a great pleasure, and am so lucky l came across you on ISprofile am negative now so happy thanks so much

  • I wonder if he will actually get that money since his abuser is in jail... I really hope so.

  • maybe we don't call a covid variant "the India strain"

  • This story is so sad, I’m sitting here crying. No amount of money could discard that.

  • “You want to wear clothing that makes you comfortable but didn’t want to be sexually assaulted when you were a child? Hypocrite!”

  • I think Australia has stopped the laws of people coming back from India. We all were upset at it so I think they took a step back from it

  • Another celebrity that is the exception to rule & now the world is looking at he now she's in control rather it is her body what hell she's talking about like world peace for example.

  • Hey, do you guys remember when phil started a patreon and took everyone's money saying he was going to start a news network and do deep dives into actual news and then he just took the money and went back to clickbait thumbnails and drama? Good times.

  • I am pretty sure that guy is is losing the bulk of that settlement money to those lawyers.

  • Poki you hippo

  • I haven’t watched this show in over a year because it was starting getting ridiculous bias, this show started out giving a balanced view of both sides of a story. Coming back now, it just pushes a leftist agenda and absolutely no balance. Such a shame

  • i’m sorry but i cannot beLIEVE that “enslaving” story is not coming with punitive damages. smith better get some pro-bono representation or something to file a civil suit for the disgusting, inhumane treatment.

  • Imagine if we have to get vaccine boosters every 3 months and just every 3 months you get to have the flu for a day. Fun times. At least then our workplaces would "hopefully" be forced to give out more sick days.

  • I'm sorry, but in what world are you so afraid of your boss that you won't speak up for your co-worker who is being abused and attacked? Umm just quit your job and immediately go to the police! What's he gonna do? Show up at your house? That's what home protection is for. And by home protection I'm not talking no google house alarm.

    • Lol. You think everything is soooo easy, but most victims of abuse don’t report it for obvious reasons that they are often blamed, ignored, dismissed, or even ridiculed. On top of their abuser likely being manipulative and instilling a sense of dependency in the victim to discourage them from seeking help.

  • Phil, that intro! You've been spending too much time on Tik Tok haven't you?

  • Local journalist here, thanks for being a supporter of journalism! ❤️

  • I really like that there's more international news. One that i think Phill shoud cover is definitely the genocide that our president is doing here in Brazil. Its a sad reality for millions of brazilians. The whole country is desperate and in grief.

  • that man needs life in prison. lock him up

  • It would make sense if Billie had used her autonomy to address the subject..... for example.... if she would have been on tour and did it in front of her fans for them instead of the incorporated parasites who took advantage of her..... it was her "i kissed a girl moment!" Nothing autonomous about it at all. She knows what they did to her and she cowed to the pressure. The corps need her to admit it was her idea so they can get away with it. She may think she is in control but .... my intuition says .... NOPE!

  • I thought the Vogue cover of Billie was absolutely beautiful. Yes Billie has always had control over her image and gravitated towards the Baggy clothes. Giving the public the opportunity to focus on her talent rather than her body. HOWEVER; we watched Billie grow into womanhood. Woman change, especially in regards to their bodies and how they feel about them. What matters here isn't that Billie remains covered up. What matters is that Billie remains in control. And that is what she has with these images. Its as if to say, Yes I am revealing more, but on MY terms. It makes her no less real.

  • Is it weird if, as a straight male, I’m more turned on by Eilish’s more conservative attire? I totally understand that my opinion should hold no weight and I’m not objectifying her or other women that dress that way but I like to see women in control-especially of their own image.

  • I hate how you showed the D-bags face he does not deserve to be seen he was evil

  • It's infuriating that it took that many years to help that man. The number of people who simply ignored it is disgusting.

  • I wish feminists would stop hating on women ya know

  • Look, sexualization in the media is a problem, but attributing Billie Eilish's desire to be more open, comfortable, and expressive about her body is in NO WAY contributing to that issue. The problem lies with the industry pressure to do so, the people who sexualize her as a minor, the media that takes advantage of that for page clicks and subscribers, and other garbage behavior. This is essentially taking Billie's point and misrepresenting it as "well... if she didn't want to perpetuate this shitty behavior, she should keep hiding herself after becoming an adult".... It's victim blaming.

  • I just wanna express my gratitude to Dr Alaho Olu on ISprofile for curing my HSV 1&2. God will bless you.

  • So happy I was able to get rid of herpes virus through the help of Dr Aloyee on ISprofile Herbal supplements..

  • Not gonna lie I don’t give a shit, and I’m pretty sure everyone also too

  • Love this show but it also makes me depressed. :(

  • noooooooo its sunday may 9

  • God bless Dr Alaho Olu on ISprofile for curing me and my girlfriend from Herpes Simplex Virus. I’m very grateful to you sir

  • She's only 19! People please leave her alone and let her be. Let her dress however she wants to dress.

  • 0:34 start

  • Youre telling me that the slavery thing was reported in 2014 and resolved in 2021???? Thats absolutely ridiculous.

  • PHIL, thank you for reporting better about India than most of our mainstream journalists. I live in delhi, India, and the deaths are wildlly underreported. They are making us sign papers saying it wasn't a COVID death claiming that it will take too long to register the death as such. Also, India banned it's own citizens back in march 2020, and I was stranded abroad that time as well, it was very difficult for me, the government totally abandoned me, and they've abandoned our whole country now.

  • Why is the owner of the restaurant not going to jail? Money is just one factor.

  • the same dudes who all have a crush on poki. and try to flirt with her non stop on her streams. are the guys who watch the hot tub streamers. dare i say shes losing attention because of those girls? she was just an odd person to be speaking on the situation

  • Why does "taking back power" always seems to involve removing clothing? I never thought of that as a power move, it's just another instance of someone else deciding what's acceptable for me to wear.

  • Potsie Weber wants his look back

  • Excellent of the lady to finally reported her boss for basically keeping his employee as a prisoner and a slave. Now the big question: how the hell did no one else do this for a period of five years?!? Not one person? Anyone? Did someone go to the authorities and they just not think it was worth looking into? I cannot imagine working next to someone like that and not doing something. It would drive me insane with anger to just watch it happen.

  • Thanks Dr Aloyee on ISprofile for your natural herbal herbs product for beaten herpes virus.

  • badass intro!

  • Phil just comes off as such a fake dude. Idk what it is. Everything feels calculated

  • As a working class man stfu. In the past year I’ve had to loose a substantial amount of weight due to health concerns. Losing as much weight as I did I’ve dealt with all of the weird backhanded compliments about how “you look so much better then before” and I’ve even had my manger get me drunk and try to (let’s just say) lure me to her car. It’s not “mostly men” abusing their power. Sexual abuse happens on a case by case basis Men just don’t talk about it when it happens to them because society wouldn’t care as much as as it happening to a rich pop star.

  • I HATE YOU PHILP DEFRANCO. Fight me to the death at the wallmart supercentre in Rogersville Tenessee. Friday the 16th of July 2021

  • Thought on covid bit: "Dependency on booster shot" Film Idea: Corporations control people because of a dependency for their booster shots. Protagonists attempt to stop the evil corporations or governments and give power back to the people. The only advantage they have is that each vaccination strain caused people to divide into different tribes, each with their own abilities and non of them like one another. Alliances will be born and friendships will be tested. Will the protagonists succeed or fail is too simple. Nothing is.....roll credits. Conspiracy theorists: 👀 Ill take my Emmy now please.

  • Billie is fighting sexualization by sexualizing herself lol

  • Based on that smug ass mugshot, I would say there isn't a sufficient punishment. He clearly doesn't think he did anything wrong. I bet he'd smile less if someone made him swallow his teeth.

  • The vast amount of “Female empowerment” and the severe lack of “male empowerment” is horrid. Females encouraged to show their bodies, and lack of masculinity for males who pay for slight acceptance of female interactions. Aka onlyfans and social media as a whole.

  • Billie Eilish has the eyes of a dead person. It looks like her soul has left the building.

  • Edwards deserves so much longer!!!! What a disgusting human being - revoke his human card immediately. I support those with additional needs and this story enrages me so much. Gloves off, I would beat the guy.

  • You look so happy.😊

  • I loved that intro xD

  • Australians living in India had a yesr and a half to get home. If you thought you would be safer in a country with a population density like India vs Australia, you are crazy. I don't understand Australians who were adamant on staying put in other countries. You have no power there. You should have high tailed home, and rode it out in our low population country, with rich resources and socialised healthcare. Plus the stimulus money too.

  • Thought you were Lawrence from Funhaus those first couple seconds.

  • If people who can be vaccinated refuse, ban them from all public places! Covid is not a joke. Many people will die if they get it from people with stupid ideas who care more about themselves and their unsubstantiated conspiracy theories than those around them. I should not be afraid for my life because people don't know how to do proper research and just believe fabrications and rumors.

  • People are not actually talking about this girls body in real life. Its only teenagers on Twitter. Ask an adult on the street and they won’t even know who she is

  • As an Australian what happened to people stuck in India is the same treatment as each state had towards each other when they had outbreaks, closed borders. The Aus government is starting repatriation flights next week for the most vulnerable, 170+ kids without parents. As a side note...I would be livid anytime I would be discussing what Covid is doing to America right now. More dead than how many wars now? 580k+. We've lost 910 here. That's a lot. Every time I hear Americans talk about people on media these days, they talk about them like they're not or sadly....weren't; just numbers instead of a person that matters or mattered once.

  • Billie is a teenage girl who is allowed to grow and change her image as she sees fit just like the rest of us have done. Your style rarely stays the same throughout your life and it should be your choice always what you wear. It’s just being made a big fucking deal because Billie is famous. She’s allowed to try different things. We don’t own her.

  • There's no amount of money in the world to pay for what that man went thru.

  • I have teams that I work with across the world daily. On my teams in India the impact of Covid-19 has been massive. Talking to real people and hearing their stories about their families is terrifying. Thanks for bringing this to the story Phil.

  • as someone living in Brazil, I have no hope anymore. a very small portion of the country has received both applications of the vaccine, and people are not respecting social distancing. thousands of people dying daily and schools are open. I'm absolutely depressed, it feels like the end of the world.

  • I’ll say it forever: if you are less interesting than a girl doing nothing in a hot tub, that’s entirely on YOU.

  • Coming back to check what Phil is talking about after like 10 years. Still accentuating every single uttered word with a hand gesture. Aaand I'll check back in another 10 years.

  • #savesheikhjarrah

  • Realistically, the denial of health insurance should be monetized and included in the amount owed to that gentleman. He should also pursue a civil suit for punitive damages.

  • At the beginning of 2021, I made a video predicting a rise in COVID cases, or specifically a reason to believe the vaccine was not effective, that would arise in April. This was shown by the cure asteroid being in opposition to the chaos asteroid. I speculated that it might be a new strain that was not covered by the vaccine. If anyone wants to watch the video, it is one my channel. I believe I titled it, "Will 2021 be better?";

    • The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago,and the second best time is now this is not the first time I hear people talking about this man called Pierre

    • Good investment are life savers.

    • The world is gradually moving out of the I work for my boss era,and people who choose to be entrepreneurs are highly securing a brighter future for themselves.

  • Empower yourself Phil! Open an Only Fans page!

  • really enjoyed getting "real" news rather than internet squabble. Thanks Phil, as always

  • tfw your girl only gets naked to PROMOTE AN UPCOMING ALBUM like for fucks sake open your goddamn eyes.

  • Can you talk about the Nikki Philippi story and how she killed her dog

  • That amount of money is a fucking JOKE! This isn't about just recovering wages, the man was kept ass a slave and fucking tortured and mentally abused for a huge chunk of his life.
