Leslie Jones’s iCloud was somehow hacked to gain access to personal, intimate photos of her along with photos of her passport and driver’s license, and then put on her website for all to see. In case you’re wondering why someone might’ve done this, all you have to do is look to all the racist garbage on her site, in addition to personal info, including a video of the slain gorilla Harambe. And, I want to vomit.
Leslie brought widespread awareness last month to the massive problem of racist trolls on Twitter, which led to changes on the social networking platform including the banning of Breitbart journalistMilo Yiannopoulos and erasure of hundreds of thousands of accounts in the same vein. Now, things had calmed down for a while, and the Olympics even invited Leslie to come to Rio and commentate along with meeting athletes and generally having an amazing, one-of-a-kind time. And then, she comes back to her personal identity being hacked, mocked and savagely trolled. Disgusting.
Thankfully, a lot of people have come to Leslie’s side, supporting her, tweeting at her and showing her that not everyone in this world is a total piece of garbage. This goes beyond a hate crime, and cuts deep into our opinion on women of color, women and success, women of age and essentially- how women are still a complete threat to men if they don’t fit in the confines of conventional looks, actions and categorization.
For ONCE, The court sided with Chris Brown in custody court. So…good on you, ya dbag.
TMZ reported that Nia Guzman lost big on every single request regarding custody of their 2-year-old daughter Royalty…including full custody, monitored visitation with Brown, denying Chris’ mom the right to see the kid and to have Chris submit to drug tests. Yeah. She even had to pay back Chris for the lawyer fees her fronted her.
The judge maintained the current situation for the two, which basically means joint custody (Chris continues to get Royalty 12 days a month, and pays Nia 2,500 a month in child support).
Because of the legal wins in the Brown camp, Nia has now dismissed her support petition, so she kinda has to go with the status quo. Sorry Nia…
A few weeks back, First Daughter Malia Obama celebrated her high school graduation at Lollapalooza in Chicago. There was a really cute video of Malia on stage with a group of girlfriends who told her to shake her thang, which she did, briefly. It was SO CUTE. Of course, it got worse, as things do with teenagers who are under lots of restrictions and just trying to expand their minds and express themselves.
Yesterday, a video came out of Malia Obama allegedly taking a tiny hit of something that looks like a joint. It could be ha hand-rolled cig, I GUESS. This seems like a Snapchat video that someone copied? Malia, get it. But you might want to tell your friends to be more careful…
Newly crowned Miss Teen USA Karlie Hay got into some major trouble after four tweets using the “N” word were discovered shortly after Hay was crowned Miss Teen USA 2016 in Las Vegas on Saturday. Screenshots of the offensive postings made their way around the Internet, and obvi people were REALLY pissed about it. Since, she has apologized for her controversial use of the N-word on lots of media outlets. But, still.
In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America, the 18-year-old Texan says she’s “ashamed” of using the racial slur in a series of tweets from 2013.
“I am very sorry,” she said. “It’s embarrassing. It’s something I’m ashamed of. I’ve grown up from that 15-year-old girl who used that type of language. It’s never acceptable and now I know how hurtful it is. It hurts me to know that at one point in my life I used that language – I said that. It’s not me.”
“At that age, I was being a follower,” she continued. “I was trying to fit in with my friends. The word was thrown around in the music I listened to, with the friends I hung out with, and I had no guidance. So it was kind of a careless mistake.”
Hay said she was “just amazed that at one point in my life I thought it was okay to use that word,” adding that “it’s not an excuse – there is no excuse to say that word at all.”
“There are certain things that Miss Teen USA just can’t do,” Kamie Crawford, 2010 Miss Teen USA , told GMA, adding that “if the decision was in my hands, absolutely she would have to be dethroned – not necessarily because of what she said, but the avenue in which she decided to say it.”
The Miss Universe Organization hasn’t decrowned Karlie, and is committed to supporting Hay’s “continued growth,” whatever that means. I get how she was 15 and a big idiot, but still. I’m sure she was in the pageant world back then and knew stuff (LIKE RACISM) could bite her in the ass.
Do you think she should lose her crown? WEIGH IN BELOW!
