Yorkdale under fire for its new, younger beardo. Adam Martin is currently on his first day of Fashion Santa duty for Black Friday. But the model he replaced, Paul Mason, is getting attention from TMZ.

What we talk about when we don't talk about something on Twitter. Andray Domise appeared in court this morning after being charged with three counts of domestic assault from 2015, which came to light in the news earlier this week. But reactions surfaced more slowly in the virtual arena where Domise made his name. The takeaway delivered by the National Post’s Ashley Csanady: “Believing women isn’t as simple as a hashtag.”

The deal was shut down by the league, which claimed it lacked “proper authorization."

Celebrity refugee campaign loses its loudest voice. “Today I received a letter (yes, on paper) that read 'don’t let the door hit you on the ass when you cross the border into Canada,'” Lena Dunham wrote in an Instagram screenshot. “This is actually one of the more polite notes I’ve gotten recently, and I’ll survive it just fine.” It was the kind of American Thanksgiving news that certain outlets could use:

CHUM’s wrecking crew saved some memories. The radio station at 1331 Yonge decamped to 250 Richmond in 2009, but the old building wasn’t torn down to make way for a condo until a few weeks ago. Teperman reports that they salvaged and cleaned 500 bricks for distribution to veteran staffers and other CHUMbugs.
