Police call off search for missing 14-month-old New York boy
Authorities are calling off the search for the 14-month-old son of a woman who was found buried on the New York farm where she worked. Crews spent nearly two weeks looking for Owen Hidalgo-Calderon, who was last seen with his mother, Selena Hidalgo-Calderon on May 16.

The co-founder of high-fashion label Dolce & Gabbana (which has been mired in its own slew of controversy surrounding anti-IVF and homophobic comments made by both Gabbana and business partner Domenico Dolce) made a nasty, completely unprovoked remark about Selena Gomez on Instagram attacking her appearance. And the singer’s passionate legions of Selenators have already run to her defense.
As first pointed out by Instagram account Diet Prada, Gabbana, 55, commented on post on The Catwalk Italia’s Instagram feed showing a five-split photo of Gomez in different red dresses prompting fans to pick their favorites in the comments.

And Selenators were quick to drag Gabbana (with all of the snake emojis) and defend the 25-year-old popstar.
“We don’t care about your lame ass brand,” one user wrote with another biting back, “look in the mirror you are ugly both interior and exterior,” and “shame on you for online bullying.”
Most recently, Gabbana went after Kate Moss on the same Catwalk Italia Instagram page, dissing a Saint Laurent look she was wearing. Moss has famously walked the Dolce & Gabbana catwalks in the ’90s, and Gomez has also worn several Dolce & Gabbana looks in the past.
Rachel Brosnahan Remembers Aunt Kate Spade in Touching Video: 'She Was Effervescent'
She shared a sweet video of the late designer dancing with her husband, Andy Spade. “Knowing Katy, this is how she would want to be remembered. She had a light that words can’t capture but touched everyone she came into contact with,” Brosnahan captioned the sweet clip. “She was exceedingly kind, beautifully sensitive, insanely talented, funny as heck and one of the most generous people I have ever known. She was effervescent.” Knowing Katy, this is how she would want to be remembered. She had a light that words can’t capture but touched everyone she came into contact with.

For his part, Gabbana has hit back at his detractors before, making it clear that he doesn’t care what they think.
Despite wrangling A-list crowds at its opulent fashion shows and casting celebs’ model kids to walk the runways, Dolce & Gabbana continues to be a controversial and polarizing brand.
Back in 2015, designers Gabbana and Dolce (who are both openly gay) publicly voiced their opposition to IVF (calling it “unnatural”) and their negative feelings toward gay parenting. (Dolce told Panorama magazine: “We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus; Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”)
Last month, Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski appeared to disassociate from the brand after his Instagram followers filled him in on the ongoing controversy.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin fueled more romance rumors Wednesday morning when they stepped out in New York City. The pair left the pop star’s hotel and made a Starbucks run, waving at the paparazzi.
In an Instagram story, the TV chef posted a photo of himself and co-star Tan France at a Dolce & Gabbana fitting. After getting what appeared to be a backlash from his followers over the post, Porowski removed the photo and issued the following statement:
“With public collaborations come social responsibility,” he wrote on Instagram stories. “Thank you for bringing to my attention that larger conversations and rigorous vetting need to take place before aligning with certain brands. I am always open to a peaceful discussion or gentle feedback, not only as a voice for LGBTQIA persons but as a human who cares for equal rights. for ALL of us.”
In June 2017, the brand launched a $245 “#BoycottDolceGabbana” T-shirt after they were criticized for dressing First Lady Melania Trump. While many designers vowed not to dress the First Lady due to her husband’s political views, Gabbana, boasted about Trump wearing the label.
“THANK YOU,” the designer captioned a photo of Melania shaking hands with one of the pope’s attendants, adding, “Haters!!!! Remember #boycottdolcegabbana please.”

The long-legged blonde beauty revealed during an appearance on Sesame Street that she was bullied for exactly those features growing up
. "Kids used to make fun of me in elementary school by calling me Big Bird (because I was 'too tall' and had 'yellow' hair). Here’s to making best buddies with the things that once hurt you," she captioned an Instagram post
of her posing beside the real Big Bird.
The model typically ignores social media haters, but some comments are too unfair and painful to let slide.
"At the end of the day I don’t want to mean, and I don’t want to 'clap back.' We’re all just human beings and it wasn’t even about what they said about our faces, it was just that — don’t attack my personality because you don’t know me. That’s what deeply hurts me," she said of her reaction. Her response was sparked when someone commented on a fan account's split photo of Hadid and close friend Kendall Jenner, accusing them of getting plastic surgery and writing, "money can get you a new face but not a nicer personality which these two girls need." "I wish you would know either of our personalities. And not only that, I wish you would only grasp a heart of your own," she wrote. "Blessings to you sweetheart. Jealousy is a cry for help that I wish I could help you with." Hadid still posts things that matter to her, but has decided to keep some things more private. "I learned that protecting myself and my heart is more important to me right now."
Blunt discovered early on how to work around her childhood stutter
, which still flares up from time to time. "It runs in my family," the A Quiet Place actress
explained. "I had an uncle, cousin, grandfather who stuttered. It’s nothing to do with anxiety." While she's learned to manage it, she admitted to PEOPLE's Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle
that the hardest part was "having it at 12, 13 — you're like, come on, man. And so I used to do a lot of funny voices and funny accents, because I could speak more fluently if I didn't sound like me." Eager to use her platform to inspire others who are afflicted with a stutter, Blunt now works with the American Institute of Stuttering
, which she says "is amazing. They offer people a real community."
Gaines may be the picture of a confident wife, mom, business owner and television star now, but the Fixer Upper host used to see herself in a very different light. In an interview with Darling magazine, the designer revealed that her insecurities stemmed from experiences she had in school. “If you haven’t heard my story, my mom is full Korean and my dad is Caucasian,
” she said. “Kids in kindergarten would make fun of me for being Asian and when you’re that age you don’t know really how to process that; the way you take that is, ‘Who I am isn’t good enough.’” Her discomfort reached its peak, though, after moving to a town in Texas and joining a new, much larger, school. "In the lunchroom everyone was a blur and I was thinking, ‘How do people do this? How do you find that one person to sit with?’” she said. “So I literally walked in the lunchroom and walked out and went into the bathroom. My fear and my insecurities just took over and I felt like I’d way rather sit in the stall than get rejected.” The experience has stuck with the Fixer Upper star, who continues to teach her kids to make friends with those who seem to need it. “I always tell my kids to look for that kid on the playground who’s not playing with anybody, to go reach out, ask them their name, to look for the kid in the lunchroom who isn’t sitting by anybody, be their friend,” she said. “That experience grounded me in that I want to look for the lonely, the sad, the people who aren’t confident, because that’s not where they’re supposed to stay.”
Beer, an 18-year-old singer who made a name for herself with her YouTube videos, said that she experiences cyberbullying on a daily basis. "I wake up and have been told to kill myself like 30 times already; it’s crazy!" she told Elvis Duran on the Z100 Morning Show
. “It’s definitely what comes with it, and a lot of people say, ‘Yeah, but this is what you signed up for.'" Beer, however, disagrees with that assessment: "I think that’s such a shame to say. It shouldn’t come along with me making music and following my dreams. It’s upsetting those two go hand-in-hand now because of social media."
Before landing his buzzed-about role as the crime-fighting webslinger in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Holland faced his fair share of adversaries
. "I had my rough patches," Holland told PEOPLE. As a talented young dancer (he played the title role in a London run of Billy Elliot the Musical at age 12), Holland fielded harassment from peers throughout his younger years. "There was times when I was bullied about dancing and stuff," he said. "But you couldn’t hit me hard enough to stop me from doing it."
In an interview with Glamour, the Baywatch star revealed she was bullied in high school
— a tramautic experience that prompted her move back to India from the U.S. "There was this girl who was a major bully. I think she didn't like me because her boyfriend liked me, or some high school dynamic," shared Chopra. "She made my life hell. She used to call me names and would push me against the locker." "Maybe I, being on the platform that I am, can say this louder than the kid who has to get on the subway and go to school: You don't need to be afraid of who you are," she said. "I don't want any kid to feel the way I felt in school. I was afraid of my bully. It made me feel like I'm less — in my skin, in my identity, in my culture."
Growing up having to go back and forth between India and New York, the Top Chef host found it difficult to fit in
. "I can even remember their names — when I was in seventh grade it was Sylvia, when I was in eighth grade it was Patty," she recalled of girls who bullied her. "One time somebody crushed an egg on my head and punched in the face — it was horrible. I used to be called giraffe and it just makes you feel so, so alone and so scared."
The 20-year-old Texas native, who will play the iconic Tracy Turnblad in NBC’s Hairspray Live!,
recently opened up about being bullied as a child. "When I was younger, I was bullied a lot and I let that stop me from doing the things that I wanted to do. And Tracy, she never lets anything stop her and she’s bullied constantly," Baillio tells PEOPLE
. "Because she doesn't let anything stop her, she gets the guy and she gets to be on the show and she takes the world!"
Before he was a successful fashion designer and film director, Ford was just a kid growing up in Texas. He told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle that his peers would make fun of him over his interest in fashion — and his disinterest in sports. "As a kid in the '60s, I wasn't great at football, I was not great at team sports, I wasn't great with my BB gun, which in Texas soon turns into a .410 shotgun and then turns into something else," he said. "I wasn't interested in those things and so I was teased a lot." Decades later, he remains affected by the bullying of his past. "Still to this day if I walk past a group of kids, they can be 8 years old playing soccer, and that ball comes towards me, I panic because, 'My God, I have to kick that ball and they're all going to laugh because I'm not great at soccer.' It's a sort of instant panic." Luckily, he had a supportive family to help him though the tough times — and the good ones later on.
Growing up, no part of Winslet was off-limits to bullies – not even her feet. "I was chubby, always had big feet, the wrong shoes, bad hair," she told Bear Grylls on his show, Running Wild. "When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life." Now that Winslet is a mother to three, she's instilling her kids
with a strong sense of self-worth to help them fight back against others' inevitable scrutiny. "I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, 'We are so lucky we have a shape. We're so lucky we're curvy. We're so lucky that we've got good bums,'" Winslet said of encouraging her 14-year-old daughter to love every inch of herself.
Life in the Kardashian-Jenner world isn't as picture-perfect as it seems, according to the family's youngest star. Jenner took to Snapchat
to reveal that she had been bullied since she was 9 years old. "I think that I've done a really great job at handling all of this. But there's bullies everywhere," she said, before ending on a positive note. "This isn't a pity party though ... This is so that others with bullies out there know that you're not alone."
Bullies do not always take the form of a classmate or insecure friend – in the case of Willis, her tormenters were tabloids, who would compare her to her "masculine father" Bruce Willis and cruelly scrutinize her face and body, causing her to consider plastic surgery as a young teen. "I thought … 'If I change my face or get really skinny, that will be it. That will be the answer.' And it's not," Willis said
, wiping away tears, on an April episode of this season's Dancing with the Stars.
High school was "terrible" for the Parenthood star, whose new film The DUFF aims to give a voice to teens struggling with body image issues. "I was bullied all through school
. It was awful. I was a tomboy and nerdy," she told PEOPLE. Though she grew up in the spotlight (she filmed her first movie at 6) and is finding even more fame these days, Whitman admits Hollywood isn't always welcoming to her, either. "There's labeling and typecasting," she added. "I get, 'Oh, you're not ugly enough or not fat enough.' But I'm like, 'Who is?'"
The beautiful former Bachelorette had her pick of adoring men on the hit show, but she says bullying when she was younger and being called "hot dog nose" caused her to alter her physical appearance. "Yes this happened, and yes I got a nose job because of it," she admitted in a blog post on her website
. "Some people are mean. I've found the best way to cope with this is to just feel sorry for them." She added that it's better to "choose the route of empathy instead of anger."
She's one of our favorite red carpet beauties
, but the Golden Globe winner says she wasn't always the center attention for the right reasons. "I was told every day at school that I was ugly," she revealed to Glamour magazine
. "And that no one wanted to be my friend. The most cruel things. If I can do anything to help young girls and to be a cheerleader for people who sometimes have low self-esteem, I want to do that."
Sure he plays Superman, with flawless abs and a chiseled jaw, but the Man of Steel star had a different nickname growing up: "I was Fat Cavill," he told Details
. "I bawled on the phone to my mom four times a day." On the bright side, the childhood trauma helped him understand his role – and land the part. "My version of Superman is essentially of a guy who has spent his whole life alone."
Her unique looks were an asset when she became a model, but until then, they just drew unwanted attention. "The kids at school would totally pick on me," Ritter told Ocean Drive
magazine. "You have to rise above it," the actress, who starred in Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 and appeared in Breaking Bad, explained. "Burn bright.”
While the star lists "fearlessness and confidence" as two of her traits nowadays, that wasn't always the case. "I was bullied so badly my dad used to have to walk me into school so I didn't get attacked," she told the Mirror.
"I'd eat my lunch in the nurse's office so I didn't have to sit with the other girls. Apart from my being mixed race, my parents didn't have money so I never had the cute clothes or the cool backpack."
The actress who played a pot-stirring prep-school bad girl on Gossip Girl drew inspiration
for the role from the bullying she endured during her real-life high school years. "This one girl threw me down a flight of stairs, fractured my ribs, punched and fractured my nose," she told Complex
Distance and time have given the bombshell actress
and new mom
perspective on what motivated the girls who made her life difficult in her tween years: "I was a gawky, skinny girl with big teeth and that made me an easy target," Mendes told The Daily Mail.
"I had two bullies and they tortured me all through junior high school. At the time I couldn’t understand why they kept taunting me. Only later could I see that I was showing them my fear and that’s what they were pouncing on."
Lovato's own experience with being bullied prompted her to begin a crusade against the painful phenomenon. "People would write 'hate petitions' [about me] and send them around to be signed. They'd have CD-bashing parties of my demos," she told PEOPLE.
"They'd come to my house, stand across the street and yell things. It was a very emotional time for me, and all I wanted to do was get away." Since then she's worked with PACER's
Teens Against Bullying organization, appeared in an anti-bullying
video and became an ambassador for Secret's "Mean Stinks" campaign.
What inspired the Pitch Perfect 2 star to start an organization called Love is Louder
to help kids through bullying and depression? Being a victim herself. "When I was younger, I was bullied daily," she told PEOPLE.
"I know what it's like to feel alone and outcast."
