Bad week for:
Modern gladiators, after researchers found evidence of the degenerative brain disease CTE in 110 of the 111 ex–NFL player’s brains posthumously donated to science by relatives. “This is a problem in football we need to address,” said researcher Ann McKee.
Beliebers, after officials in China banned Justin Bieber from performing in the country, in an effort to “purify” the nation and protect it from “badly behaved entertainers.”
Oversharing, after actress Hillary Duff’s Los Angeles home was burglarized of jewelry and other items while she was on vacation in Canada. Authorities suspect that Duff may be one of a string of celebrities whose social media photos of their fabulous trips have led to thieves breaking into their empty, palatial homes. ■
