The Walking Dead’s Khary Payton Has a Beautiful Message About THAT Gut-Wrenching Death

Big spoilers for the most recent episode of The Walking Dead below!

I can give you a long list of characters on The Walking Dead who I would’ve rather seen bite the dust on Sunday night than Shiva. That’s right — King Ezekiel’s beloved pet, a massive tiger the former zookeeper has had throughout the apocalypse, dies a brutal, tragic death in season eight‘s fourth episode, «Some Guy.»

Shiva’s death didn’t exactly come as a surprise, given the sad scene is a near-identical re-creation of a similar moment from the comics, but it still hurt. No one put up with Ezekiel’s over-the-top monologues quite like she did, and now the days of her dramatic sneak attacks are over. Why can’t we have one good thing, AMC? Why?

We may still be mourning the end of the fiercest CGI cat in history, but we’re not alone. Khary Payton, the actor who brings Zeke’s larger-than-life persona to life each Sunday, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the death of his digital costar. After calling the loss of Shiva the removal of a «rare beauty [from] this dark, apocalyptic world,» he explained why she’s been so vital to his character’s arc:

«That’s the symbol she carries for Ezekiel. She’s the symbol and embodiment of the Kingdom itself. Who knows how many tigers there are left in the world? At least in [The Walking Dead world], she is a rare creature. I think he felt that way about the Kingdom. It’s a rare place. Seeing that symbol that got him through the early stages of the apocalypse, that was the breakdown for me. It’s all she represented. I wasn’t just thinking about a CGI character necessarily. I was thinking about the embodiment of this rare and beautiful thing he had willed himself into believing could happen.»

All I can say is that if Jerry goes next, AMC will have hell to pay.

Taylor Swift’s Sneakiest Message of the Day Was Hidden Right in Her Shoes

Taylor Swift rarely does anything without intention — whether it’s picking an outfit or writing a song, it seems that the performer’s every move is laden with implications. So when Taylor shared a fleeting snap of her Victoria’s Secret branded socks during a Nov. 10 Instagram takeover, we immediately began to think about what it could mean . . . and it seems to be a clue about the singer’s next big move. Namely, performing at the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Here’s the Instagram Stories photo in question, where you can clearly see the «PINK» on Taylor’s sock:

Leading up to the release of Reputation, rumors swirled that Taylor would perform at the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Considering that Taylor performed at the show in 2013 and is close friends with several VS models like Lily Aldridge and Martha Hunt, it’s not too crazy of an idea! So Taylor’s sock is merely another drop in the bucket of hints that she’ll be performing on the runway with the Victoria’s Secret Angels again — but rocking her new, confidently petty persona, not as «the old Taylor.» (She’s dead!)

«Look What You Made Me Do» has a perfect catwalk beat, and Taylor would absolutely rock the VS stage. And with ex-boyfriend Harry Styles as another rumored performer for the annual show, there’s some potential for drama — which you know could inspire an excellent song.

We’ll have to tune in to find out whether Taylor’s sock was actually a deliberate hint or if she’s just a fan of the brand! In the meantime, you can catch us analyzing every lyric from her new album.

Marc Anthony Burns Donald Trump So Bad With a Powerful Message About Puerto Rico

Marc Anthony had some choice words for President Donald Trump on Sunday, and we think his one simple tweet spoke volumes. After the 71-year-old spent the weekend tweeting about NFL players who were taking a knee during the national anthem at games, Marc called him out for focusing too much on that instead of recognizing the catastrophic damage left in Puerto Rico, a US territory, after Hurricane Maria.

The tweet, now liked over 155,000 times and retweeted more than 66,000 times, was the perfect response to Trump’s lack of hurried action to help the island. On the other hand, Anthony has been actively urging his fans across his social media platforms to donate to United for Puerto Rico to help with hurricane relief and even partnered with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to send help and funds.

On Sept. 24, the singer posted a touching message on Twitter that will make you shed a tear (or a lot of them). «We will never quit. I also know that in moments like this, it’s easy to get desperate and you feel like you are alone, you’re not. We are on our way and we’re going to come out of this stronger than ever so hang in there,» he said while getting choked up. «Help is on it’s way. I think about you 24 hours a day. We are working hard 24 hours a day. Trust me, we are on our way. I love you guys. Stay strong.»

Trump first tweeted about the disaster on Sept. 20 when the hurricane made landfall in Puerto Rico.

After news broke that Hurricane Maria left 90 percent of the island without power, the president didn’t comment — until Sept. 26, right after Anthony’s savage tweet. After a few vague tweets where he mentioned Puerto Rico’s current national debt, he very quickly went back to tweeting about the NFL.
