Winner and loser of the week: Tom Hanks does the most Tom Hanks thing; Alicia Machado gets called fat again
Tom Hanks. The actor is the latest celeb to crash a wedding, and honestly, can you think of a better person to have in your wedding photo album? Hanks snuck up behind a couple taking their wedding photos in Central Park, and though he declined an invite to the reception, he joked that he would officiate the wedding if they needed him. Hanks took an Instagram pic with the happy couple and posted it with "Elizabeth and Ryan! Congrats and blessings! Hanx."This is the most Tom Hanks thing Tom Hanks has ever done.
Alicia Machado. While Machado herself hasn't done anything too embarrassing, the former Miss Universe was thrust back into the limelight this week when presidential nominee Hillary Clinton brought up Donald Trump's treatment of the pageant winner during Monday's debate. "He called this woman Miss Piggy. Then he called her Miss Housekeeping because she was Latina," Clinton said. And who wouldn't want their weight commented on during a presidential debate, amiright? Republican presidential nom Trump revisited those same insults in a strange late-night tweet frenzy this week, calling Machado "disgusting" and encouraging his followers to "check out" her sex tape. Being weight-shamed on the Internet by a could-be president doesn't make for a good week.
For those few people knocking me for tweeting at three o'clock in the morning, at least you know I will be there, awake, to answer the call!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2016
