Kim Kardashian is picking up the bill of a former prisoner who was recently denied housing because of his background.
Matthew Charles, who had served 20 of his 35-year sentence for a non-violent drug and weapons charges, was the first to be released under new prison reform laws.
Kim first heard of Charles' story through an article posted on Twitter. Charles was first granted early release in May 2016 by mistake and two years later was ordered to finish out the rest of his sentence. Charles had a hard time finding a place to live due to his criminal past.
TMZ states Kim reached out to Charles privately Sunday and offered to pay his rent and to help him find a place to live.
Last month CW announced they would be creating a TV series with the first openly gay superhero. It was revealed this week that Ruby Rose will be playing Batwoman when it hits the small screen late this year.
The series about Batwoman, whose real name is Kate Kane, is in development for the 2019-20 TV season. Kane is described as a highly-trained street fighter with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind.
Rose took to Instagram on Tuesday to confirm her involvement in the show.
"The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. I'm also an emotional wreck." she wrote in the caption to a photo of her by an illustration of Batwoman. "Because this is a childhood dream. This is something I would ahve died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on tv and felt alone and different. Thank you everyone. Thank you god."
Rose should make her debut as Batwoman in December.
CW is currently developing a TV adaptation of Batwoman and it is set to be the first live action superhero series with an openly gay lead character.
When Batwoman was introduced in the 1950's she was a love interest of Batman. The purpose of her character was to prevent any further questions of Batman's sexuality because many people thought he was gay. Then in 2006 she was reintroduced as Kate Kane, an openly gay woman.
The show describes Kate Kane as an "out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence. She is armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind". The show will focus on her "overcoming her own demons" before emerging as a hero in Gotham City.
Chris Pratt is out saving lives just like his Guardian of the Galaxy character.
The actor took to his Instagram to post a warning to his female fans that there is a "pervy dude" setting up fake accounts in Pratt's name.
“It’s confirmed: somebody is trying to pretend to be me on Facebook (and maybe other social media platforms) apparently hitting on a lot of different female fans, trying to get their numbers and who knows what else. I’m not joking,” Pratt began his warning. He then urged fans to look for the verified blue check mark to make sure they have his actual profile.
“Please know, I find this behavior reprehensible,” the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star continued. “If I find out who it is I’ll have their account shut down and seriously would like to punch them right in the GD mouth. You hear that imposter!? Stop.”
Since Pratt's post, the profile has been removed from Facebook.
Facebook also released this statement : “Claiming to be another person on Facebook violates our Community Standards, and we have a dedicated team that’s tasked with helping to detect and block these kinds of scams. We’ve developed several techniques to help detect and block this type of abuse. At the time someone receives a friend request, our systems are designed to check whether the recipient already has a friend with the same name, along with a variety of other factors that help us determine if an interaction is legitimate. It’s an area we’re continually working to improve so that we can provide a safe and secure experience on Facebook.”
