During a recent appearance on the popular podcast “WTF” with Marc Maron, Lin-Manuel Miranda revealed that rapper Immortal Technique used to bully him in high school. Miranda and Immortal Technique (real name: Felipe Coronel) attended Hunter College High School in New York’s Upper East Side, where the “Hamilton” creator realized he wanted to dedicate his life to musical theater.

Of Coronel, Miranda said, “He terrorized kids, he threw them in the garbage. I got thrown in the garbage by him.” But Miranda wasn’t just firing shots at his old classmate — he made it clear that Coronel became a much different person after high school. “He was a really angry kid and it’s been wonderful to watch him grow up and find a political outlet for that anger,” said Miranda to “WTF” host Marc Maron.

Unfortunately, some took this as Miranda having beef with Immortal Technique. Miranda took to Twitter to clarify that they’re good:

Immortal Technique thanked Miranda for clearing things up…

And asked followers to learn from the mistakes he made as a teen bully.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who also went to high school with Miranda and Immortal Technique, confirmed that Miranda’s story was completely true. During an interview on Viceland’s “Desus & Mero,” Hayes explained the dynamic between himself, Miranda and Immortal Technique. Hayes also took a moment to let all his haters know that he wasn’t a total nerd in high school. Desus, who went to middle school with Hayes, confirmed that Hayes was indeed cool.

Everyone’s Favorite Mexican Actor Finds Love Troubles In Upcoming Comedy


“Because I love you, stupid.”

Love is equal parts tragedy and comedy, as Gael García Bernal finds out in his latest film, “You’re Killing Me, Susana.” Eligio, played by Bernal, wakes up one day to find that his wife has moved to the U.S., leaving him alone in Mexico. And for good reason. Eligio, it turns out, isn’t the kind of person you’d want your friend to date, let alone marry. But rather than leave well enough alone, Eligio doubles down and travels to the U.S. to win her back, as men like to do. What could possibly go wrong?

Sadly, Eligio is plagued by a problematic personality that leads him to several tragically hilarious situations.


Eligio quickly finds that his machismo isn’t well received in the U.S., and his past infidelities have pushed his wife into the arms of another, stronger man. No need for tears, though. The humor and the heart of “You’re Killing Me, Susana” blossoms out of the struggles Eligo has to overcome to change for the better. And even if he is able to become the person his wife deserves, it still might be too late.

However flawed the character is, it’s hard not to like Bernal, whose onscreen charm and charisma that have made him one of Mexico’s biggest crossover actors over the last few years.


In 2016 alone, Bernal won a Golden Globe and two of his films, “Desierto” and “Neruda” were nominated for Academy Awards. “You’re Killing Me, Susana” premiered at the Guadalajara International Film Festival to rave reviews, and is now set for U.S. release on February 17th. It looks like 2017 will be another watershed year for one of Mexican’s most well-loved actors.
