JANE FONDA LAUNCHES TIKTOK WORKOUTS ... FOR THE PLANET

At 82, Jane Fonda is showing no signs of slowing down. But because social isolation has put her hit Netflix show Grace & Frankie and her weekly Fire Drill Friday environmental protests on ice for the time being, the actress is reviving her classic workout series on TikTok, but not for your bod … for the planet.

Fonda's workouts essentially changed the at-home exercise game in the 1980s, and she is aiming to do it again, saying that there are "too many workouts happening right now on television and on computers" and that what she really wants is for everyone to "work out for the planet."

Fans can work up a sweat for their health and the planet's with Fonda every Friday "on your couch or your yoga mat" as part of her efforts "to keep the pressure on politicians to adopt a #GreenNewDeal, end new fossil fuels, and enact a just transition to a renewable economy that protects workers and communities."

Within hours of posting her first workout on Instagram and TikTok, it was watched more than 300,000 times, with many followers praising her as a "national treasure."

TWITTER REACTS TO LOUIS C.K.'s NEW COMEDY SPECIAL

Twitter is reacting, mostly with displeasure, to the news that Louis C.K., an admitted sexual harasser, continues to stage a career revival. This time, he's offering a new stand-up special, titled Sincerely Louis C.K., through his own website for $7.99.

In a nod to the pandemic, the beleaguered comic said it was for "those who need to laugh." He continued: "In fact, the sh****er things get, the more serious, the more dark the more terrifying, the more dangerous and dire anything is, the more important it is to laugh in the midst of it and often directly in its face."

Reaction was mixed. Wrote one critic: "Everyone is trapped in a room, terrified and exhausted. There has never been a more appropriate time for Louis CK to release a comedy special."

Another wrote: "Louis CK releasing a special when no one can leave the room feels pretty on brand TBH."


CHANNING TATUM AND JESSIE J SPLIT (AGAIN)

Channing Tatum and Jessie J split in late 2019 after dating for more than a year, only to get back together in January. But now, they've split again after realizing they just couldn't make it work.

A source tells People: "They cared enough about each other to try again but realized it was better to move on. It's totally amicable."

The first time around, insiders said the love was there, but the timing was off, with Tatum wanting to focus on co-parenting Everly, whom he shares with ex-wife Jenna Dewan.

Also complicating matters was the fact that trolls online were constantly comparing Dewan and J's looks, a fact that seemed to frustrate everyone. In January, after reuniting, Tatum flipped out on a follower who suggested that J wasn't as attractive as Dewan.

"hey Alex i don't usually address sh*t like this," Tatum wrote. "But you seem as good a of terrible happy people hating thoughtless person as any of them. why dont you seriously think about what your doing. It's hurtful and i ain't about it."

He added: "And ain't no body more stunning and beautiful to look at but even more as a human than Jess. And yeah that includes my ex."

That remark seemed to offend Tatum's fiancé Steve Kazee who shared a meme of Will Ferrell in Instagram Stories, that said "Watch your mouth." He wrote underneath it, "That reckless talk bruh..."

Also, Jenner reveals that her search history might be pretty sketch when asked if she'd rather give up her phone forever or have her history revealed: "In my particular case, I would never use a cellphone again.
