Word is spreading fast that Joan Rivers' death was allegedly caused by an unplanned biopsy during Rivers' outpatient procedure:
During Rivers' planned endoscopy ... doctors discovered something on her vocal cords and her doctor decided he would biopsy it ... this according to the NY Daily News.
During the biopsy Rivers' vocal cords reportedly seized -- slammed shut -- cutting off her air supply. Sources tell TMZ while they were trying to resuscitate her, her heart stopped.
Medical experts told the Daily News ... the biopsy was too risky for outpatient surgery and should have been performed in a hospital.
Rivers never recovered and died a few days later.
There's a very simple reason behind the misspelling of your name at Starbucks.
This Buzzfeed video explains why these things happen.
Huffington Post Gay Voices editor Noah Michelson has written a compelling essay regarding anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church's threat to picket the offices of Huffington Post.
"We're not scared of a handful of sad people with access to school supplies and a few nasty slogans."
Michelson explains why WBC has actually accomplished some good by shedding light on the hateful side of religious-based homophobes thereby encouraging folks to "scramble to get out of their shadow so as not to be confused with them or their hate."

One Million Moms is up in arms over the newest commercial from Levi Strauss.
In the newest "Live in Levi's" commercial, there are many suggestions of what you can do in your Levi jeans. The ad states consumers can do many things in their Levi's. For several reasons this Levi commercial is distasteful and sends youth the wrong message. Many have found the "unbutton them" and "button them" segment highly inappropriate. The scene shows a couple making out leading up to a sexual encounter. The female begins unbuttoning the male's jeans until their young daughter walks in on them and the male quickly buttons back up his jeans.
There are a few other offenses during this commercial including a water drenched man air drying his jeans from a public bus window while wearing his underwear, along with the statement you can "wash them or not." Then there is a "roll them" reference, with a couple rolling on top of one another while wearing their jeans. Levi Strauss & Co. is being irresponsible in their new advertising campaign, especially since it is aired as early as 6:30 pm when families are likely watching. This advertisement is harming children in the name of humor.

After years of teasing his future career as Hollywood’s hottest director, Chris Evans is finally talking about his debut film “Before We Go” and where he wants it to take his career.
But first, The Wrap‘s film reporter Jeff Sneider would like to cover more pressing issues, like the time Chris wore a Cool Whip bikini and shoved a banana up his ass in Not Another Teen Movie.
Because that, according to Sneider, was the tightly-clenched fruit that launched this man’s career. Sneider’s first question is, “How did it feel after you ‘made it’ in your film debut?”
“I don’t know if I made it,” Chris answers. “The movie had me stick a banana in my ass. It wasn’t exactly some high brow art.” We bet James Franco begs to differ.
Here’s the clip:
On the topic of his upcoming directorial debut, Chris adds:
“I’ve always wanted to do it, it was just a matter of finding the right time. When it comes to acting, there’s always another job. Whenever you think, after this I’m gonna take some time and make this happen, then all of a sudden another opportunity arises and you just kind of follow it.”
Swoon. Check out the rest of his interview here:
