Tim McGraw Collapses On Stage
Country legend Tim McGraw scared a group of concert goers when he collapsed in the middle of his set over the weekend. Tim was performing in Dublin, Ireland at the Country to Country Festival when he dropped to the ground just after performing "Humble & Kind."
Thankfully Faith Hill was on hand who went on stage to inform everyone about what had happened, "He's been super dehydrated. I apologize, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out onstage."
A rep confirmed dehydration was indeed the reason he collapsed however local medical staff treated him and he will be okay!

Stranger Things Creators Accused of On-Set Abuse
The Duffer Brothers, co-creators of Netflix's smash sci-fy hit Stranger Things, came under fire in recent days after a show grip for the first two seasons accused the brothers of on-set abuse. Peyton Brown put forth a statement on her Instagram last week detailing why she wouldn't be returning for season 3 claiming she “personally witnessed two men in high positions of power on that set seek out and verbally abuse multiple women."
The Duffer Brothers then release a statement saying, We are deeply upset to learn that someone felt uncomfortable on our set. Due to the high-stress nature of production, tempers occasionally get frayed, and for that, we apologize,” the brother wrote. “However, we think it is important not to mischaracterize our set, where we believe strongly in treating everyone fairly regardless of gender, orientation, race, religion, or anything else. We remain totally committed to providing a safe and collaborative working environment for everyone on our productions.”
Netflix also followed up with a full investigation in which they found no evidence of wrong doing.
I guess there’s no better day than #nationalwomensday to say #timesup and announce that I will not be a part of the filming of Season 3 of Stranger Things. Why, you ask? Because I stand with my sisters. I personally witnessed two men in high positions of power on that set seek out and verbally abuse multiple women. I promised myself that if I were ever in a situation to say something that I would. I have 11.5 thousand followers who can hear me say this, TIME IS UP. Women in the film industry are POWERFUL. We will rise and we will scream from mountain tops in support of each other and I will not contribute my time, efforts, and talent to such abusive people. There is too much going on in this world to be regressive. There are too many amazing and highly respected men in respective positions of power that I have had the utmost pleasure of working beside. Those are the people I want to surround myself with. Those are the projects I want to be a part of. This industry is no longer led by a “few good men,” but instead by an OCEAN of ASTOUNDING WOMEN. Enough is enough. For my sisters- Time is up. #timesup #theabusestopsnow #ontobiggerandbetter #standupforwhatsright #womenempowerment #ladygrip #sisterhood #iatsesisters #wewillbeheard #thispicsaysitall
