Melissa McCarthy Apologizes & Pulls Charity From 20 Days of Kindness Campaign Following Fan Backlash

Melissa McCarthy has issued a big apology to her fans after a campaign she is attached to was supporting an anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ charity.

Taking to Instagram, the 50-year-old actress shared her regret about the charity being included and thanked fans for letting her and HBOMax know about it.

The 20 Days of Kindness campaign is attached to promote her upcoming film, Superintelligence, and one of the charities highlighted was Exodus Cry, a Christian organization that states it’s “committed to abolishing sex trafficking and breaking the cycle of commercial sexual exploitation.”

News quickly spread about how the organization’s CEO Benjamin Nolot has a history of making comments against abortion and homosexuality.

“It has come to our attention that our 20 Days of Kindness, which is a kindness hub that we started to shine a light on 20 great charities, had one in there that…there’s no other way to say it, we blew it,” Melissa shared in her video. “We made a mistake and we backed a charity that upon proper vetting stands for everything that we do not.”

She continued, making sure that her fans knew it’s not a charity she supported knowing what she knows now.

“Because the answer is, No we do not,” Melissa said. “We have pulled it. We are so incredibly grateful for you ringing the bell and helping us be better. We’re sorry for our mistake. Oh boy, are we are sorry for it. Can’t believe that we missed it.”

Launched earlier this week for World Kindness Day, the campaign highlights a cause each day and encourages everyone to donate if they can.

For the campaign, HBOMax is donating $20,000 to each organization.

Just recently, Melissa celebrated her wedding anniversary with Ben Falcone with a funny tribute. See what she wrote here…

Ellen DeGeneres Source Reveals James Corden Won't Replace Her, Names Four Other Stars Instead

A source is speaking out that Ellen DeGeneres won’t be replaced by James Corden, a rumor that spread over the weekend.

James Corden is definitely not under consideration as he has a long term deal with CBS and if he was interested in a daytime show, CBS would develop one for him. Regardless, he’s busy enough in late night so it’s not going to happen,” the source told the Daily Mail.

The source added potential names that would reportedly be considered if Ellen DeGeneres stepped away due to all the controversy surrounding her show and the allegations she’s facing.

The names mentioned were frequent Ellen Show guest host Sean Hayes, Kristen Bell, Melissa McCarthy and ‘the ultimate A-lister’ Jennifer Aniston. This is an unconfirmed report, but we will wait and see if Ellen DeGeneres decides to appear on her show in the Fall.

Meanwhile, Portia de Rossi just broke her silence on all the rumors.
