A guy in the jury of the German version of American Idol recently compared the COVID lockdown to concentration camps, so the producers were like "Nope", blurred him out, replaced everything he said with speech bubbles, beeped out his name everytime it was mentioned and even replaced the performance of a contestant who sang one of his songs with a generic jingle.

When the contestant was singing his song, they also showed this:

Contestant Christian chose a song by the judge we removed from the show due to his unspeakable remarks. That’s why we also won’t play this judge’s music.

I know here on tumblr.org many of you are not that into the sportsball, but I know you love righteous drama and pettiness, and oof, do we have some for you over in football land.
So Hungary, as you may've heard, has put out some anti-LGBT legislation that would ban the depiction or promotion of homosexuality to people under 18. It's not quite law yet but it's just got to get through their president Viktor Orban who is, unfortunately, a shit.
Meanwhile, football, no the other kind of football- the one with the round ball, is currently having a big European tournament. Euro 2020. Yeah, they didn't rename it. Doesn't matter. Germany were due to play Hungary last night in Munich and they asked the governing body of the tournament for permission to light up the stadium in a rainbow. Like this:

But they said no. Specifically, they said no while dressed in a rainbow pfp and claiming that the rainbow isn't a political symbol:

And Germany, bless them, looked at that and said, ooh bitch it's on now.
Munich city hall got out the banners

And last but not least this absolute madlad who ran onto the pitch during Hungary's anthem

Viktor Orban stayed at home and sulked, and Hungary got knocked out of the tournament.

Germany just outlawed intersex genital mutilation throughout the country! 
The law explicitly prohibits intersex surgery that is for cosmetic reasons, although it still does allow some types of intersex surgery at birth that are deemed medically necessary. It’s defintely not a perfect law yet and there’s still work to go, but this is an AMAZING win and I’m so inspired by the intersex groups in Germany who have been working tirelessly to get this law passed.
