John Stamos was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol early last month and now, he’s decided to check himself into rehab.

The famed Full House star is in a “residential program for substance abuse,” according to TMZ. The site reveals:

Stamos got busted in Beverly Hills on June 12.

Cops cuffed the former “Full House” star on the scene, but then rushed him to a hospital for treatment … believing he was suffering from a serious medical condition.

People first reported Stamos’ rehab stint. He’s scheduled to be in court for the DUI in September.

We’re happy to see him taking this seriously.

It turns out Atticus Finch is a racist.

To Kill a Mockingbird lovers were shocked to find out that the fictional character in Harper Lee‘s beloved novel has a dark side in Go Set a Watchman. Gawker reports:

Here’s some bad news if you grew up idolizing Atticus Finch, the beloved protagonist of Harper Lee’s 1960 classic To Kill a Mockingbird: Your childhood hero is an awful, Klan-loving racist in Lee’s new novel, Go Set a Watchman, according to the New York Times review.

According to chief book critic Michiko Kakutani, Finch spent the 20-something years between Mockingbird, set in the 1930s, and Watchman transforming into a run-of-the-mill Southern bigot fond of saying things like, “the Negroes down here are still in their childhood as a people” and “Do you want Negroes by the carload in our schools and churches and theaters? Do you want them in our world?”

Finch also denounces the Supreme Court and the NAACP in the new book.
