Disneyland Paris apologizes after worker ruins wedding proposal, gets booed

The video is excruciating to watch: At Disneyland Paris, a couple gets on a dais with the newly-restored Sleeping Beauty’s Castle overlooking the occasion.

Disneyland Paris apologizes after worker ruins wedding proposal, gets booed

The man, dressed in all white, gets down on one knee holding a ring out to his partner with applause heard in the background. Just seconds later, an overly eager Disneyland employee bolts onto the platformed stage and snags the ring from the man while he’s still kneeling. He then extends his arms out, gesturing the couple to get off the stage. Another worker, seen slightly off-frame, beckons for the couple to step off.

“She said yes,” the man says. The worker replies, “Yes, that’s great — over here will be even better.” A cascade of jeers can be heard in the closing seconds of the video.

The awkward scene was first posted on Reddit, with the user alleging that the man “asked for permission” before doing the marriage proposal at the park. (Responses online were almost uniformly critical of the Disney worker.)

"We regret how this was handled," a Disney spokesperson told Newsweek. "We have apologized to the couple involved and offered to make it right."

Milton town official resigns after making anti-Biden remark at Memorial Day observance

MILTON — A town official has resigned after he used a code phrase popular with opponents of President Joe Biden to conclude his remarks at the town's Memorial Day observance on Monday.

Steven Fruzzetti, who is an elected member of the town's cemetery commission, resigned from the post late Thursday afternoon, said Milton Town Clerk Susan Galvin. Fruzzetti is also an elected member of the Massachusetts Republican State Committee.

At Monday's ceremony, Fruzzetti welcomed participants to the cemetery on behalf of the trustees, and thanked the staff for their work maintaining the cemetery and volunteers for placing an American flag on the grave of each veteran.

"Welcome, and let's go, Brandon," he concluded. The remarks were recorded by Milton Access Television.

"I Found Condoms in My Son's Room. What Should I Do Now?"

I Found Condoms in My Son’s Room. What Should I Do Now?
A reader, horrified by the idea of his offspring being sexually active, seeks advice.

Our 19-year-old son is staying with us during his college’s summer break. While my wife was vacuuming, she discovered a box of condoms under his bed. It was unopened, but I am still furious! My son knows that I strongly oppose premarital sex. He’s also well aware of my general philosophy: my house, my rules. When I confronted him about the condoms, which I discarded, he denied they were his. He claimed he was holding them for a friend, as if I were an idiot. I would like to throw him out of the house, but my wife disagrees. How should I proceed?


the man who groped teen girl on flight last year sentenced.. 20 months in prison

A 15-year-old girl recorded a Texas man groping her on a flight last year, federal officials said.

Now Vincent Harry Kopacek, 76, of Fredericksburg, is going to prison for 20 months on a charge of abusive sexual contact, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Montana said in a news release.


Prosecutors said a 15-year-old girl recorded Kopacek sexually assaulting her on an Allegiant Airlines flight from Austin to Bozeman, Montana, on July 8, 2021, according to the criminal complaint.

The teen told investigators she was sitting in the seat directly ahead of Kopacek with her mother and sister.

Before the plane took off, she said Kopacek reached around her seat and touched her body, prosecutors said in court documents.

He’s accused of then touching the teen multiple times throughout the flight, including grabbing and squeezing her arm and touching her chest and breasts. He also tried to touch near her waistline, prosecutors said.


The girl recorded 20 videos of Kopacek touching her and took photos of him with her phone, according to documents.

In addition to his 20-month sentence, Kopacek was also ordered to five years of supervised release and to pay $363 in restitution.

“Vince cannot explain his decisions and actions on that flight. It (is) the opinion of his friends and family, as well as the undersigned, that Vince is as shocked as anyone that he committed this act,” his attorney wrote in his sentencing memorandum.

Newsom, Bonta way ahead as California voters lean partisan, Times poll finds


Newsom, Bonta way ahead as California voters lean partisan, Times poll finds

Newsom’s massive lead not only suggests that he’ll swamp the field of 25 challengers in next week's gubernatorial primary but also that none of the candidates, at this point, has amassed enough support to be a credible threat in a one-on-one match in the Nov. 8 general election.

According to the poll, half of likely voters support Newsom — including 83% of Democrats and 46% of voters registered as having “no party preference.”

In the race for California's top cop, Bonta is similarly well-positioned to best any of his four opponents, with 46% of likely voters saying they support him. Newsom appointed Bonta to the job last year and he is now running his first statewide campaign in a bid for a full four-year term.

"The overall picture is pretty encouraging for the incumbents," said Eric Schickler, co-director of the Institute of Governmental Studies.

Dan Newman, a political consultant to Newsom, called the poll's findings a "tremendous vote of confidence in his leadership through very challenging times.”


Republican political consultant Christy Wilson said Newsom "largely won his reelection when he beat the recall" effort in September and, as a result, no big-name challengers surfaced to challenge his 2022 bid for reelection. The lack of drama in California's premier races has sapped voter enthusiasm, she said, which could suppress voter turnout.

LeBron James becomes the 2nd athlete to become a billionaire (1st was Michael Jordon)


After another monster year of earnings–totaling $121.2 million last year–Forbes estimates that James has officially become a billionaire, while still playing hoops.

The 37-year-old superstar has a net worth of $1 billion, by Forbes’ count. James, who’s missing the playoffs for just the fourth time in 19 seasons, is the first active NBA player to make the billionaires list. (Michael Jordan, the only other basketball billionaire, didn’t hit ten figures until 2014, more than a decade after he retired, thanks to a well-timed investment in the Charlotte Hornets basketball team.)

"It’s my biggest milestone,” James told GQ in a prophetic 2014 interview. “Obviously. I want to maximize my business. And if I happen to get it, if I happen to be a billion-dollar athlete, ho. Hip hip hooray! Oh, my God, I’m gonna be excited."

James has done just that–maximized his business, to the tune of more than $1.2 billion in pretax earnings. He has commanded more than $385 million in salary from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers as the NBA’s highest-paid active player. Off the court, he has raked in upwards of $900 million in income from endorsements and other business ventures.

DeSantis moves to ban transition care for transgender youth, Medicaid recipients of any age

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s administration Thursday asked the state board regulating doctors to essentially ban transitioned-related care for transgender minors, according to a letter obtained by NBC News.

The move from the Florida Department of Health came hours after another state agency issued a 46-page report to justify banning Medicaid coverage for transgender people of any age who want puberty blockers, hormone therapies or gender-assignment surgery.

The two-pronged effort, which ensures DeSantis can act quickly and without the need for legislative approval, drew instant opposition from trans activists and medical professionals. They’ve increasingly clashed with the Republican governor as he seeks reelection and builds a national brand as a culture warrior and potential 2024 White House contender.

Leading the charge for DeSantis: Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, who oversees the Department of Health.
