Daphne Richards, once a full-time manager at Chik-fil-A, was demoted and took a pay cut after a leave for a double mastectomy. The company defended its decision by saying they actually punished her for “poor performance and out of concern she wouldn't be able to handle the work load.”
Maybe not necessarily in that order, huh?
So if you didn't already hate patronizing Chik-fil-A for its corporate anti-gay stance or its ultra-conservative deference to the Bible, you might be forgiven if you decided not to eat there after hearing about this unfair action.
But you wouldn't be forgiven by Deadline. According to the popular movie-biz site, you'd just be a wide-eyed optimist at best or a hypocritical “shillbilly” at worst if you boycotted Chik-fil-A but still ate at a restaurant that has also potentially or demonstrably done something with which you disagree: Deadline has taken the stance that boycotting the Beverly Hills Hotel due to its ownership by the Sultan of Brunei—who has announced the death penalty for homosexuality in his country beginning in 2016—is logically indefensible, and rather than stopping there, an article on the site goes on to personally attack some of the boycott's most high-profile proponents as hypocrites.
In the piece by David L. Robb, entitled “Beverly Shillbillies: Hollywood Hypocrites Shun Hotels While Hawking Wares To Rights Abusers,” a laundry list of instances is provided to show how some of the famous faces involved in the boycott of the hotel are happily doing business with other, similarly despicable entities:
Nicki Minaj, who shows off her two sides (by which I do not mean the left and right cheek) on the cover(s) of the new Dazed and Confused, is also behind the latest viral video from Ellen:

Here is another in my running series of roundups (the first here, the second here, the third here), meant to highlight some of social media's hottest show-offs. They're usually aspiring or accomplished models or actors, but I'm also interested in un-shy narcissists who make persuasive visual cases as to why we should look.
As always, hit me up with your suggestions for guys I can profile in the future, and be sure to follow my own sexed-up Instagram just for (naughty) fun. Actually, my Tumblr (Work Unfriendly) is where the real action is at.
For now, enjoy the latest 9 who caught my eye...
