Wax statue of Michael Jackson removed from mall over vandalism concerns

A wax statue of the late “King of Pop” Michael Jackson has been removed from a mall in Denmark.

The statue was removed from the Roedovre Centrum shopping mall — the oldest in Denmark — over concerns it could offend shoppers or be vandalized because of accusations that Jackson molested boys. The mall is located in suburban Copenhagen.

In fact, the mall has received roughly 15 complaints about the statue, primarily from families with children, Charlotte Andersen, the marketing manager for the mall, told Denmark’s TV2 broadcaster, according to The Associated Press.

Critics gush over the spectacle and story of 'Avengers: Endgame'

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Film critics unleashed overwhelmingly positive reviews on Tuesday of “Avengers: Endgame,” the highly anticipated final installment in a decade-long superhero story from Walt Disney Co’s Marvel Studios.

As of Tuesday afternoon, all but one of 56 “Endgame” reviews collected by the Rotten Tomatoes website were rated as positive.

USA Today’s Brian Truitt called the three-hour film “Marvel’s glorious greatest-hits package” with callbacks to previous adventures that will thrill fans who have faithfully followed characters such as Iron Man and Thor.

“It’s also a singular, sprawling and hugely satisfying tale that begins with a brutal, emotional gut punch and takes you on quite the trip with the original Avengers crew,” Truitt said.

“Endgame” concludes a story that has unfolded over 21 previous films since 2007 and become the highest-grossing franchise in movie history. It picks up where last year’s “Avengers: Infinity War” left fans hanging when several beloved heroes appeared to turn to dust.

CNN’s Brian Lowry said “Endgame” delivered a worthy finale.

“The filmmakers have sought to reward movie-goers with a spectacle that’s epic in every way,” Lowry said.

“The overall journey not only produces several genuine surprises – no small feat in this context – but plenty of humor, with an assortment of lighter moments to augment the stirring and, yes, emotional ones,” he added.

A.O. Scott of The New York Times said the movie provided the “sense of an ending,” even though many characters are expected to return in future films, and “a chance to appreciate what has been done before the timelines reset and we all get back to work.”

“We’ve lived with these characters and the actors playing them for more than a decade,” Scott wrote. “For the most part, it’s nice to see them again, and a little sad to say goodbye.”

Box office experts say “Endgame” may break the opening weekend record for ticket sales in the United States and Canada, which now stands at $257.7 million for “Infinity War.”

Kristin Cavallari says she doesn't feel the 'support' from Jay Cutler: ‘We gotta get back on the same page’

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are trying to work on their marriage issues.

In a clip from this Sunday’s “Very Cavallari” episode, the couple is seen talking about the current state of their relationship while taking a boat ride.

“Listen, the other day, you know how we had the conversation about how I haven’t really been able to make time for you?” Cavallari, 32, asks her husband of nearly six years. “So I left that conversation and I was thinking about it and I was kind of like, ‘Hang on a second. Why is this all my fault?'”

KRISTIN CAVALLARI ADMITS SHE AND JAY CUTLER HAVE ‘PROBLEMS’ IN THEIR MARRIAGE

“I just didn’t feel like that was very fair,” the reality star admits before going on to explain that she doesn’t feel like Cutler, 35, supports her.

“I feel like if you were really supportive and really encouraging of everything I have going on, I would want to make time for you,” she admitted. “It would be a different situation, but I feel like everything I have going on is a problem.”

The former Chicago Bears quarterback agreed with his wife. “Yep. I just gotta do a better job. You’re consumed with [Uncommon James] and you should be. That’s how you’re going to be successful and that’s how you’re going to run a good business.

“It is a lot of change this year,” he continued. “You going from 0 to 60 and I just gotta deal with it.”

KRISTIN CAVALLARI WANTS TO SEE A ‘HILLS’ AND ‘VERY CAVALLARI’ CROSSOVER EPISODE

In 2017, Cavallari launched her Nashville-based jewelry company Uncommon James, which quickly expanded to a home line, Uncommon James Home, and a children’s collection, Little James.

The E! personality also noted that she and her husband, who last played in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins in 2017, “have basically switched roles.”

“For sure. Completely,” Cutler acknowledged. “Whenever I was playing football you didn’t pressure me.”

“When you were playing football, I had to give up my whole life and I had to just live your life and I never gave you a hard time about it,” Cavallari reminded her husband. “It just was what it was. I was at every game and I supported you and I did everything that I was supposed to do as a wife.

“I feel like since I’ve gotten really busy, I don’t have that same support from you,” she explained to her husband. “We gotta get back on the same page. I just don’t feel like we’re on the same page right now. We’re having a really hard time seeing eye to eye.”

“Okay. I can do that,” Cutler assured his wife. “It’ll be fine.”

Cavallari and Cutler tied the knot in June 2013, 10 months after welcoming son Camden Jack. The pair are also parents to son, Jaxon Wyatt, and daughter, Saylor James.
