Cailtyn Jenner thinks the Republican Party needs help with LGBTQ issues

Caitlyn Jenner thinks she knows what the Republican Party needs.

Jenner took to Twitter on Wednesday to share her opinions on the Republicans and LGBTQ issues and was faced with a plethora of responses.

"Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ issues and I'm here to help!" she tweeted Wednesday.

Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ issues and I'm here to help!— Caitlyn Jenner (@Caitlyn_Jenner) January 18, 2017

One follower responded, "good luck with that when they won't even let you use the proper bathroom."

Another follower also criticized the former Olympian, writing, "with respect, make sure you are fully versed in them before you 'help.' And Trump is NOT your friend."

Some of the backlash stems from Jenner's commitment to appear at the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump on Friday. A lifelong Republican, Jenner also presented a speech at last summer's Republican National Convention and stated her desire to become the party's "trans ambassador."

Before he was elected president, Donald Trump expressed support for Jenner and said in an April 2016 interview on the "Today Show" that she would be allowed to use any restroom she is comfortable with in the event she was in Trump Tower. 

Jenner took Trump up on the offer a week after the interview, using the restroom in Trump Tower and sharing a video of the before and after on her official Facebook page. She also used the video to take a dig at Trump's former political rival, Sen. Ted Cruz.

"Thank you, Donald, I really appreciate it," Jenner said, adding, "And by the way, Ted, nobody got molested."

'A Dog's Purpose' producers respond to video of possible abuse, says German shepherd is fine

Video that emerged Wednesday of a German shepherd dog named Hercules was quickly called into question by some viewers.

Celebrity gossip site TMZ obtained video from the set of the upcoming film "A Dog's Purpose," that some viewers may find disturbing. It shows Hercules struggling with a person who appears to be a trainer trying to get the dog to jump into a pool of water that appears to be rigged to simulate rushing ocean waves.

Some are claiming the dog may not have been treated humanely.

The Huffington Post reported that the final scene in the movie shows the shepherd rescuing a person from the waters. The scene was shot in Winnipeg, Canada, in November 2015.

Hercules can be seen resisting going into the water, while the trainer appears to try to ease him into the water by picking up the dog and dipping one of his back paws into the water. Eventually, the dog goes into the water with the nudging of the trainer and is submerged in the water before being pulled back out.

Another clip shows the dog in the water. He appears to go under the water as handlers rush to swim toward him and "Cut it!" can audibly be heard in the clip.

When TMZ first posted and reported about the video, Amblin Partners and Universal Pictures, the companies that created the film, said they would investigate the matter.

Hours later, producers of the film from Amblin reportedly told TMZ the dog had "several days of rehearsal of the water scenes to ensure (he) was comfortable with all of the stunts."

"On the day of the shoot, Hercules did not want to perform the stunt portrayed on the tape so the Amblin production team did not proceed with filming that shot."

The American Humane Association told the celebrity gossip site that a representative from the organization who was on set had been suspended after officials saw the video.

"We are placing the safety representative who was on the set on administrative leave immediately and are bringing in an independent third party to conduct an investigation into this matter," the organization told TMZ.

The AHA oversees safety guidelines for animal actors on movie sets, ensuring that no animals are harmed in the process of filming.

Disney video appears to confirm theory that every Pixar movie is related

One of the longest-enduring fan theories about movies is that in the Disney Pixar universe, all the films are related to each other.

One theory by film reviewer Jon Negroni, aptly named, "The Pixar Theory," goes so far as to say that all Pixar movies take place within the same universe.

The A.V. Club reported that, according to a video posted to the Toy Story Facebook page Sunday, numerous Easter eggs -- hidden messages or inside jokes -- from past Pixar movies are shown in a compilation video showing characters from some Pixar movies as inanimate objects in others.

Lady Gaga teases Super Bowl performance with behind the scenes video

On Feb. 5, Lady Gaga will take the stage during the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Less than three weeks before the championship game, Pepsi, who is sponsoring the halftime show, released a teaser video of the pop superstar as she prepares for her performance.

In the behind the scenes video, Gaga can be seen at other appearances, and clips show dancers preparing choreography for the big event. "Bad Romance" is one song fans might expect from Gaga during the show, according to the video.

"This is, obviously, a humongous platform. This is, probably, like, the greatest 12 minutes of our lives," said choreographer Richy Jackson, who has worked with Lady Gaga for at least 10 years. "We're just going to see a humble, appreciative yet showmanship side of Gaga. And we haven't seen her like this because we haven't been on a stage like this. It'll be a new face, a different kind of energy."

"It will be special because I've been planning this since I was 4," Gaga said in the preview. "So I know exactly what I'm going to do."

Gaga, who recently performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, has teased photos of her Super Bowl preparations on Instagram and said that she and her dancers built a tent in her backyard with a dance floor to practice.

"The thing is, it's such a big world stage in terms of how many people see it," Gaga said in the Pepsi behind the scenes video. "It's been done so many times (that) I think the challenge is to look at it and say, you know, 'What can I do differently? How can I elevate certain little things here and there?"

Last year, Lady Gaga sang the national anthem before the start of the Super Bowl game. She released her fifth studio album, "Joanne," in October.
