'Feuding' Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds try to call a truce in ads for each other's products

Wolverine star Hugh Jackman and Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds have released a video on Twitter showing them attempting to call a truce over their long-running social media “feud.”

The two actors are shown discussing the commercials they’ve agreed to make for each other’s products: Jackman’s coffee company Laughing Man Coffee and Reynolds’ Aviation Gin.

Reynolds shows his commercial, featuring Jackman’s coffee beans as being “born with a special power.” “Hugh can be behind such a hugh-roic company?” Reynolds’ voiceover asks, before the flattering conclusion, “My friend, Hugh Jackman, the loving and caring man who created Laughing Man.” Reynolds then claims the ad cost $1 million to make.

Jackman’s ad for Aviation Gin is far from flattering, however, as the video shows next. He uses an expletive to describe Reynolds before pouring a bottle of gin all over a table after saying: “The gin’s pretty great though, I’ll have to try it someday.”

The video, released on the actors’ Twitter accounts on Wednesday, cuts back to the two sitting in a studio, with Jackman saying: “Sorry man, I didn’t think the truce was actually real,” before both their companies’ logos appear on the screen.

Reynolds tweeted the video with the caption “F for effort.”

The two stars have been sending each other up for years. In 2017, when Jackman tweeted a picture of him with fans in Beijing, Reynolds commented: “Pretty sure those are protesters.” Last November, Jackman posted a video of his dog pooping on a photo of the Deadpool actor after Reynolds made a political-style video questioning Jackman’s name and nationality.

Reynolds bought a stake in Aviation Gin in February 2018 and in September announced it would be available on Virgin Atlantic flights. Jackman launched Laughing Man in 2011 after a 2009 visit to Ethiopia where he met coffee farmers. His company provides a marketplace for farmers to sell goods to the U.S and donates all profits to a community foundation.

Hours after Trump calls US justice system ‘a laughing stock,’ White House denies he ever did

The White House on Wednesday flatly denied that President Donald Trump had ever called the American criminal justice system “a joke and a laughing stock,” just hours after Trump said precisely that during a televised Cabinet meeting.

Hours after Trump calls US justice system 'a laughing stock,' White House denies he ever did

The White House on Wednesday flatly denied that President Donald Trump had ever called the American criminal justice system “a joke and a laughing stock,” just hours after Trump said precisely that during a televised Cabinet meeting.

“We need quick justice and we need strong justice — much quicker and much stronger than we have right now — because what we have right now is a joke, and it’s a laughingstock,” Trump said at the meeting.

The president’s remark followed a terror attack in New York City on Tuesday that killed eight people. The suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, was shot on the scene and quickly taken into custody. Authorities later found items that indicate the attack was inspired by ISIS.

A few hours after Trump’s Cabinet meeting, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, “Why did the president call the U.S. justice system a joke and a laughing stock?”

“That’s not what he said,” Sanders replied. “He said that process has people calling us a joke and a laughing stock.”

Sanders went on to say that the president was frustrated by how long and costly it is to prosecute individuals accused of terror-related crimes under U.S. law.

“Particularly for someone to be a known terrorist, that process should move faster. That’s the point [Trump] is making. That’s the frustration he has,” she said.

To be sure, Trump did express his frustration at the slow pace of the justice system during his Cabinet meeting, saying the nation needed “to come up with a punishment that’s far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting right now.” But he never said there were “people calling us a joke.”

Wednesday’s press briefing left reporters stunned, as they compared Sanders’ denial to the official transcript of Trump’s remarks in the Cabinet meeting.

CNBC asked the White House to clarify how Sanders could have claimed “that’s not what [the president] said” when that was, in fact, precisely what the president said. The White House did not immediately respond.
