Amal Clooney Slams Conviction of Al-Jazeera Journalists

Amal Alamuddin Clooney is speaking out about the conviction of three Al-Jazeera journalists in Egypt and says that it sends a “dangerous message.”

The 37-year-old human rights lawyer and wife of actor George Clooney represented Canadian Mohammed Fahmy, who was sentenced to prison for not being registered with Egypt’s journalist syndicate while covering the military ousting of Islamic president Mohammed Morsi back in 2013.

“The verdict today sends a very dangerous message in Egypt,” Amal said in a statement after the ruling. “It sends a message that journalists can be locked up for simply doing their job, for telling the truth and reporting the news.”

“And it sends a dangerous message that there are judges in Egypt who will allow their courts to become instruments of political repression and propaganda,” she added.

Broadway Actor Kyle Jean-Baptiste Dies at 21 After Tragic Fall

Kyle Jean-Baptiste has sadly passed away at age 21 after tragically falling off his mom’s fire escape.

The young actor had been starring in the Broadway production of Les Miserables as an ensemble member and an understudy to Jean Valjean, the role Hugh Jackman played in the movie.

Kyle made history just weeks ago when he became the youngest person and also the first African-American man to play Jean Valjean on Broadway.

“The entire Les Miserables family is shocked and devastated by the sudden and tragic loss of Kyle, a remarkable young talent and tremendous person who made magic – and history – in his Broadway debut,” a rep for the show told BroadwayWorld.com in a statement. “We send our deepest condolences to his family and ask that you respect their privacy in this unimaginably difficult time.”

Just a couple weeks ago, Kyle did an impromptu performance of the show’s song “The Confrontation” with Lin-Manuel Miranda. Watch that below:

The 42-year-old actor was seen still wearing his wedding ring just days after his wife Megan Fox filed for divorce.
