'Homeland is racist': artists sneak subversive graffiti on to TV show
Street artists say they were asked to add authenticity to scenes of Syrian refugee camp, but took chance to air criticisms of show’s depiction of Muslim world
By Claire Phipps

“The trio decided instead to use the opportunity to air their criticisms of the show, adding graffiti stating: “Homeland is NOT a series”, “The situation is not to be trusted” and “This show does not represent the views of the artists.”

The Arabic script was not checked by producers, they claimed. “The content of what was written on the walls … was of no concern. In their eyes, Arabic script is merely a supplementary visual that completes the horror-fantasy of the Middle East, a poster image dehumanising an entire region to human-less figures in black burkas and moreover, this season, to refugees.

Amin told the Guardian: “We think the show perpetuates dangerous stereotypes by diminishing an entire region into a farce through the gross misrepresentations that feed into a narrative of political propaganda.

“It is clear they don’t know the region they are attempting to represent. And yet, we suffer the consequences of such shallow and misguided representation.”

Homeland has frequently run into controversy during its five seasons, particularly over its depiction of the Muslim world and its portrayal of an apparently cosy relationship between Al-Qaida and Hezbollah.”

EXCLUSIVE: 'Grey's Anatomy' Star Caterina Scorsone Pregnant With Second Child: We're 'Very, Very Excited' | ETOnline

Congratulations are in order for Caterina Scorsone!

The Grey’s Anatomy star is expecting her second child with husband Rob Giles, and she confirmed the news to ET at the Disney/ABC Television Critics Association party at the Beverly Hilton on Thursday. The couple are already parents to daughter Eliza.

“I am!” the 34-year-old actress told ET, adding that she and her husband are “very, very excited” for their new bundle of joy.

Scorsone showed off her baby bump with a figure-hugging long-sleeved black collared dress and revealed that she’s due in the middle of production.

“It’ll be challenging. It’s going to happen somewhere during the shooting season,” she said. “But Shondaland is the best place for that to happen.”

When asked if she knew if she was having a boy or a girl, Scorsone said their keeping that a secret: “Yeah. We’re kind of not [saying].”

She also admitted that her real-life pregnancy will not be written into Amelia’s storyline on Grey’s Anatomy. Since viewers last saw Amelia, she was getting married to Owen (Kevin McKidd).

“I don’t think so. We’re picking up the season immediately after we left off, which was the wedding where Amelia was not pregnant,” she said with a laugh, adding there will be some “very fancy footwork for the director of photography.”

Scorsone was in good spirits about it all, joking that she’ll be wearing more “lab coats” come fall. As for what season 13 entails, she promised fans will be in for a real treat.

“There is a new living situation with Amelia,” Scorsone said. “It’s going to be fascinating on a lot of different levels. Owen and Amelia, they got married really fast, and marriage is like a seismic shift in a person’s life, let alone two people who are coming to the table with deep wounds and scars, so I think negotiating that transition into inter-dependent life is going to be dramatic and challenging. We’ll see how that goes!”

“So far, it’s actually pretty sexy,” she said of Owen and Amelia’s relationship, “but I imagine – just knowing Shondaland and knowing life – that they’re going to have to figure their stuff out.”

July 25, 2016 // Happy Monday! (I know I’ve been gone for a few days, life got busier than expected.) I just wanted to show you a couple pages I added to my bujo recently. One is a “things to watch” page, and the other is a “midnight thoughts” page where I put random thoughts and ideas that I have in the middle of the night. (I haven’t actually had any since making the page, oops) Message me if you have any cool TV shows or movies that you think I should watch, I want to fill up this page!
