The caption Galaxy wrote: “If I can’t see unsee this then you can’t either.” It pictures Galaxy covering his mouth in false-shock. What resulted was likely thousands looking at this cat’s hairy body, fat-shamed by the famed cat behaviorist on Galxy’s public Snapchat.
The backlash was strong — Galaxy has been now banned from PetSmarts nationwide and predictably lambasted on the Internet.
That’s because once the store banned Galaxy, they then notified the Los Angeles Police Department that he had photographed a cat in its store. That’s strictly prohibited, according to the store’s website.
“His behavior is appalling and puts every pet entering our stores at risk of losing their privacy,” said Jill Greenville, the company’s executive vice president of operations.
Los Angeles Police Capt. Alexander Neiman said they received a report of “illegal distribution” of the image from the international pet store chain. Detectives from the LAPD’s west division animal cruelty section are investigating.
“Our written rules are very clear: Cellphone usage and photography are prohibited in the store aisles and grooming areas,” Greenville said. “This is not only our rule, but common decency. Common human decency, which Mr. Galaxy, if that is his real name, failed to exhibit in this instance.”
Galaxy’s action was illegal under California law. A section of the state penal code revised in 2014 said it is a misdemeanor to look “with the intent to invade the privacy of anyone” in places like a pet store, where one has “a reasonable expectation of privacy,” with a camera. Under this law, it is illegal generally to distribute an image of the “intimate body part or parts” of someone “without the consent of or knowledge of that other someone.”
Under that law, Galaxy could be charged in the state of California with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor that can include a fine of up to $1,000 or six months in jail.
Meeeeoooow, Mr. Galaxy!
Fort Lauderdale-based consumer class action attorney Jeffrey M. Ostrow said the investigation in Brazil is still ongoing as to exactly what led to his client being “extorted” at the gas station. But Lochte’s version of events, at least as of the writing of this article, said that he had a gun pointed at him, or near him, and he paid some money to somebody at the gas station, who may or may not have been an employee of the gas station. Or maybe a police or security official. But it was somebody who spoke Portuguese and wanted money for possible property damage that video footage shows he may or may not have caused.
Ostrow said his client stands behind the part of the story that Lochte actually was in Rio for the Olympics, and attended a party sometime on the weekend of August 13th. “That part of the story will never change.”
“We chose the medium of an e-book so that if Mr. Lochte’s version of events needs to be updated, or changed, or altered, it would be much easier to amend the facts as he sees them in e-book form, rather than in books already printed and bound” a statement from Random House said.
The terms of the contract were not disclosed, though a source close to Lochte said it “was like, for more than half a million dollars, Ryan told me. Then he told me an hour later that it was for like, more than five million dollars. So you know he is getting a lot of cake. Like, a lot.”
Likening the horror of the ordeal to “being like that movie ‘Midnight Express.’ Just like that,” Ryan’s pal said Lochte was concerned about his “front quadrant and stroke length, to use swim terms.
“Except nobody got killed and he wasn’t technically in a Turkish prison. But it was exactly like that except for that part. Literally just like that.”
Standing only three feet, eight inches tall, he also played the Ewok Paploo in “Return of the Jedi.”
Besides his very important parts in the first six “Star Wars” films, he also appeared in such films as “Time Bandits,” “Flash Gordon,” “RECOiL” and “Labyrinth.”
On television, Baker appeared in such programs as “Casualty,” “The Muppet Show,” “The Goodies” as well as a BBC production of “The Chronicles of Narnia.”
He was credited as a consultant in the most recent “Star Wars” film, “The Force Awakens.”
So far, no comment has been provided by his “Star Wars” co-star and well-known douche bag Anthony Daniels.
He is survived by two children.
After releasing “Drowning Out” ft. Maurice Moore in April, Erich Mrak is now releasing three new singles (which are incorporated within the music video) today. The music video is titled “Retrospect” (the same as the EP), moulded around his three new singles, “You’ve Changed,” “I’ll Be Fine,” and “Fall.” While the three singles focus on the challenge of accepting the end of a relationship, “Retrospect” visualizes a continuous storyline in three distinct parts relating to each new single. The links for all of the new singles can be found below.
Gibson, 54, has long been known in Hollywood for his explosive temper, much of it only recently confirmed by his “Dharma” co-star, Jenna Elfman.
Here is a rundown of just a few of the more famous altercations showing how terrible Gibson is:
December 2014: Pulled a switchblade out and stabbed a patron during an altercation in a bar in Wisconsin.
November 2009: Attacked Tiger Woods with a golf club while the golfer was driving his Cadillac Escalade, causing Woods to crash into a fire hydrant.
January 2007: Threw a BlackBerry at his former housekeeper in a fit of rage.
June 2005: Threw a telephone at the concierge of the Mercer Hotel when the concierge refused to help him place a call.
June 1997: Bit part of Evander Holyfield’s ear off during their boxing match in Las Vegas.
January 1997: Kicked a cameraman in the groin who was sitting court side during a game agains the Minnesota Timberwolves.
January 1994: Attacked rival Nancy Kerrigan by clubbing her in the knee with a police baton just before the US Figure Skating Championships in Detroit.
The facts don’t lie. Clearly this man is a menace. While some in the public eye wonder if his fits of rage stem from his work on “Criminal Minds,” this list proves he has been displaying this side of him far longer than the run of his show. This sort of behavior goes back more than two decades.
No wonder Jenna Elfman refuses to do a reunion show with him. Can you blame her?
Gibson was suspended for two weeks after this latest incident. But if I’m Joe Montegna and the rest of the cast of “Criminal Minds,” I’m giving Tommy a wide berth.
