Here's what's being talked about in pop culture:

• Rachel Maddow's scooplet on MSNBC last night, revealing leaked copies of two pages of Donald Trump's 2005 tax returns, caused a Twitter explosion — mostly from people not familiar with Maddow's slow-burn delivery style. [Vulture]

• Trump, after griping on Twitter this morning about Maddow's scoop, also tweeted his ire at rapper Snoop Dogg — because of a new rap video that shows Snoop pointing a gun at a Trump-like clown figure. This, of course, was part of Snoop's marketing plan. [Entertainment Weekly]

• That giant clapping sound you heard was millions of film lovers slapping their foreheads at the news that Warner Bros. is going to reboot "The Matrix." [The Hollywood Reporter]
