Rico Nasty Says She Got Into A Racist Exchange Because Of A Parking Spot

Rico Nasty hopped onto Twitter recently to explain a racist exchange she was involved in–and it all went down over something as unimportant as a parking spot.

“Lmao racist people love being like ‘DID U THREATEN ME ILL CAWL THE COPZ,” she tweeted. Rico went on to tweet further about what went down after one of her fans to asked if she was being attacked racially. She also clarified that the whole thing happened over a parking spot.

When someone replied, telling Rico Nasty that she should have reacted physically toward the racist aggressor, Rico revealed her reasons for keeping her cool: “So he could google my name and sue me . Lol no,” she wrote.

Her tweets go on to take a more serious tone as she tweets about wanting to cry over her thoughts about “all the people who have gotten killed in situations” similar to what she went through. Rico also thanks the men she was with at the time for not escalating things, saying that the situation really could have gone in a completely different direction.

As of now, the rapper hasn’t spoken further on what it was that actually happened during this altercation, but any argument over a parking spot–especially one that becomes racially-charged–is better left avoided and dismissed as quickly as possible.

Enjoy True Wireless Listening With These Affordable AirPod Alternatives 

There’s no denying it — AirPods are the most coveted wireless earphones right now. Everyone you know either owns a pair or desperately wants to snag one. You can’t blame them, really. The AirPods produce great sound and allow for tons of flexibility. But then again, they’re not the most affordable things on the market. At $160 a pop, they’re hard to justify, especially if you have, you know, bills to pay.

But that doesn’t mean that you have to forego your dreams of enjoying truly wireless listening. The AirSounds Pro True Wireless Earbuds look just like the trendy AirPods, have many of the same features, and cost a quarter of the price. These babies boast auto-pairing, wireless charging, and built-in touch controls to make for an elevated listening experience. It offers the flexibility you need thanks to the absence of wires, and you’ll have no trouble wearing them for hours with their sleek, ergonomic design. Plus, with the portable charging case, you can further prolong their 4-hour battery life, so you can enjoy wireless listening all day long.

Healthy & Happy K. Michelle Calls Black Market Butt Injections ‘The Worst Decision Of My Life’

K. Michelle Says Her Illegal Butt Injections Were The “Worst Decision”

K. Michelle is once again being open and honest about her butt augmentation surgery and the negative effects it had on her life. As previously reported K underwent butt reduction surgery to “remove the foreign objects” from her body that were causing her extreme complications. Now she’s dedicated to helping other women remove their butt injections and she’s preparing to launch a TV show to do so.

Before that show begins, however, K’s appearing on Dr. Phil and detailing her decision to go under the knife in the first place. The songstress was a guest on the host’s “Dying To Be Hot” episode and spoke candidly on her decision to go under the (illegal) knife. According to K, she let a “well known” black market injector put silicone in her body in a hotel room.

“It was the worst decision of my entire life,” said K. “I went to a person who was well known in my music circle. He was not a doctor, he does this in a hotel room, he told me it was gel—some type of gel when it was actually free-flowing silicone in your body.”

She also added that she was already curvy but wanted to be more voluptuous. That backfired however when she started to “look like an ant.”

“I just wanted to be real thick, I wanted to be curvy, what was so messed up Dr. Phil is that I was already curvy,” said K. “I was pleased at first but then I started to look like an ant.”

K also told Dr. Phil that her surgical removal has left holes in her body and she’s devastated by the results. She also cautioned a mother of five on getting a Brazilian butt lift to “look like J. Lo.” (1:50)

What do YOU think about K. Michelle advising against plastic surgery? Gotta appreciate her honesty.

Real American Hero: Black Football Coach Hugs Armed Student After Taking Away His Shotgun

Former Oregon Ducks Wide Receiver Keanon Lowe Hailed For Heroism In Video Released Of Him Disarming Student With Gun

Recently released video footage of Parkrose High School head football coach Keanon Lowe embracing a student after wrestling away his gun, is giving the world a little more hope for humanity. Watch the video below:

The incident happened earlier this year at the Portland school on May 17th. At the time Lowe told Yahoo! he just acted instinctively:

“In a fraction of a second, I analyzed everything really fast, saw the look in his face, looked at his eyes, looked at the gun, I realized it was a real gun and then my instincts just took over,” Lowe said.

“I lunged for the gun, put two hands on the gun, and he had his two hands on the gun…I was just making sure the barrel of the gun isn’t pointed towards them or towards me. I was able to wrestle it away.”

“He broke down and I just wanted to let him know that I was there for him,” Lowe said. “I told him I was there to save him. I was there for a reason and that this is a life worth living.”

So touching right? The student, Angel Granados-Diaz was charged with two counts of being in possession of a loaded firearm in a public building, one count of being in possession of a loaded firearm in public, and one count of recklessly endangering. He pleaded not guilty to the four charges. His lawyer Adam Thayne said depression and mental health issues contributed to Granados-Diaz’s actions.

Lowe was honored by the Portland Trail Blazers during Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Finals this year.

Mall Security Accused Of Roughing Up Pregnant Octavia Stitts

According to WISN,  a pregnant Wisconsin woman is demanding action be taken against mall security officials who she said roughed her up during a security incident involving her daughter.

The incident occurred at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa. Allegedly, after mall security responded to a group of rowdy teens Octavia Stitts received a phone call informing her that her 15-year-old daughter (who was on a birthday shopping trip) was attacked by a group of around 30 teens. The pregnant Stitts went to the mall to pick up her daughter.

Mall security locked up Stitts’ daughter and when Stitts asked for her daughter to be released, a shouting match between mall security and the pregnant mother began, which quickly turned physical. She then claims she was forced to the ground by mall security guards and ordered to roll over onto her stomach.

“The security had roughed me up and threw me on my stomach, and I wasn’t there when she was fighting or anything. I was just coming to get my daughter,” Stitts told WISN.

Stitts said she nearly went into early labor and was rushed to Children’s Hospital. She said she, her daughter and unborn son are OK, but she wants justice, reports WISN.

“I just hope the security get fired, you know? I hope they lose they jobs for what they done to me cause I didn’t deserve that at all,” Stitts said.

This is UNACCEPTABLE.

What do YOU think should happen to the mall security who acted aggressively with Octavia Stitts???

Sounds About White: Man Eats Nothing But Mac & Cheese For 17 Years Straight

Man Eats Only Mac & Cheese For Nearly 20 Years

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Austin Davis has an eating disorder called avoidant food intake, a condition where trying new foods can cause a negative reaction in the body. This has caused the 20-year-old to eat nothing but mac and cheese for 17 years straight.

The unique diet reportedly began after he was removed from his home as a child after enduring physical abuse from his father. He then began eating the dish religiously,  trying to eat new food but his body refuses to ingest it.

“I don’t want to say I’m addicted to mac and cheese, because it sounds so weird…But my body won’t let me eat anything else. I didn’t choose to be like this.”

He also works out four times a week, mostly boxing, to try to stay in as good of shape as he can.

Protesters Win: Chick-Fil-A Announces Closing Of United Kingdom Store Right After It Opens

Chick-Fil-A Announces Closing Of United Kingdom Store Right After Its Opening

In the United States Chick-Fil-A is one of the most coveted fast food chains in all the land. People will walk into a Chick-Fil-A and act like they entered a church, code switching and leaving the cussing at the door.

Recently, they have been under fire for being ranked the slowest drive thru in the US–but that hasn’t slowed business at all. You would think if Chik-Fil-A was to close one of their stores, it would be over something not related to their actual business and that’s exactly the story here.

Chick-Fil-A has been under fire over its owner’s homophobic comments since the beginning of time, which has been an on-again-off-again issue in America. If we are being 100% honest, it always flares up around election season, but people forget as soon as the sandwich hits their mouth. Unlike the U.S., though, the United Kingdom wasn’t as forgiving and wanted the Southern chain gone expeditiously.

UK Protesters have been all on Chick-Fil-A since they opened their store on October 10th, and Chick-Fil-A has already responded, essentially letting people know they figured this would happen and only wanted a six months lease anyway.

“We have been very pleased with the lines since opening Oct. 10 and are grateful for customer response to our food and our approach to customer service,” the company said on Saturday. “We mutually agreed to a six-month lease with the Oracle Mall in Reading as part of a longer term strategy for us as we look to expand our international presence.”

While Chick-Fil-A is basically promising to return bigger and better, LGBTQ organization Reading Pride is still opposed to their return.

“We are staunchly opposed to Chick-fil-A setting up shop in the UK and certainly in Reading,” the group said in a statement on Twitter. “The chain’s ethos and moral stance goes completely against our values, and that of the UK as we are a progressive country” that has legalized same-sex marriage and “continues to strive toward equality.”

One thing you can count on is Chick-Fil-A to donate to these same anti-LGBT groups every election and for the groups like Reading Pride to put the public on notice as soon as they do.

Charlamagne Establishes Scholarship Fund In Honor Of His Mother

Charlamagne Tha God just established a $250,000 scholarship fund at South Carolina State University.

Charlamagne’s mom is an SCSU alum, which is why he decided to dedicate this act of kindness to his mother. The radio personality presented the scholarship fund check to the school’s alumni association this weekend at the South Carolina State University’s homecoming game.

“Today was South Carolina States homecoming and I had the honor of announcing “The Ford Family Endowed Scholarship Fund” named after my mother and my grandmothers maiden names. We will be providing scholarships to black women in South Carolina who Major in English, (my mother’s major) Communications, (because I’m a Radio/TV Guy), and for any sister that wants to be a mental health professional,” Charlamagne explained in his caption. “Always remember investing in an HBCU is investing in the future of our people so the next time an HBCU ask for money, open that wallet.”

Starting a scholarship fund for black women at HBCU’s is much-needed, and this money is definitely going to be put to good use.

Gon’ head, Charlamagne!

The Saga Continues: The Game Ordered To Pay Sexual Assault Accuser $7 Million After Losing His Appeal

The Game Must Pay His Sexual Assault Accuser $7 Million

The Game has taken yet another loss in his ongoing legal battle with Priscilla Rainey, who sued the rapper for sexual assault years ago.

The United States Court of Appeals has rejected Game’s request for a new trial, which means that he is still required to pay Rainey the $7.1 million in damages that it was already determined she’s owed. The court announced this most recent decision on Thursday, which is now more than four years after the plaintiff initially filed a civil suit.

According to the complaint, the sexual assault occurred back in 2015 when Rainey was a contestant on Game’s VH1 reality show, She’s Got Game. It all went down after Rainey reportedly agreed to meet the rapper at a Chicago sports bar for a date, but wasn’t that it would be off-camera.

According to the suit, The Game showed up to the restaurant “highly intoxicated on alcohol and drugs (which was typical), and sexually assaulted plaintiff on several occasions that night. This included him forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks.”

Back in 2016, Rainey won her case and was awarded $7.1 million once the rapper failed to appear in court–and the fact that Game was a no-show for the initial hearings was a big factor in the appeals court’s decision. Circuit Judge Diane Sykes also pointed to Game’s online attacks against Rainey, referring to him accusing her of suing him because she was bitter over her being eliminated from the show.

This case has seemingly been cut and cry from the start, but to this day, Game refuses to pay up. It seems like it’s time to just get it over with and hand over the $7 million.

A Lil Positivity: DaBaby Gifts A Homeless Woman And Her Toddler With $1,000, Sales Skyrocket For Her Hat Company

DaBaby Gives $1,000 To A Fan Living In Her Car

DaBaby has absolutely blown up over the past year, working with huge artists and securing a Number 1 album with Kirk. What’s even better than his success in music, though, is that the Charlotte rapper has been putting his fame to good use, giving back to his fans at every chance he gets. That’s exactly what happened in Georgia this week when DaBaby met a woman in need.

After his performance at Clark Atlanta University, the rapper was introduced to a fan named Amanda, who waited three hours to see the rapper at his meet-and-greet. She had previously contacted DaBaby in hopes of selling him some hats so that she  could provide for her young son.

“It took a lot for me to come here,” Amanda told the Charlotte native while pulling out the merch from a bag. That’s when the rapper pulled out a stack of cash and handed $1,000 over to the mother, who lives in a car with her child. He also told Amanda to keep the hats and sell them to someone else, instead.

Check out a video of the heart-warming interaction down below:

This isn’t the first time DaBaby has given to his fans without asking for anything in return.

On a stop in Washington, D.C. just last week, the rapper approached a group of children who were selling boxes of cookies. After doing some calculations and figuring out it would cost about $230 to buy everything, DaBaby gave the kids $300–plus, he let them keep the cookies.

YIKES: Fabolous Asks Twitter How Many Arguments Are Healthy For A Relationship, Gets Dragged By His Bedazzled Bifocals

Fans Go In On Fabolous For Asking About Arguments In Relationships

Fabolous’ relationship with Emily B is always the topic of conversation, and it’s usually because something between them is going terribly wrong.

Beside the usual make-up/break-up cycle that they’ve gone through several times in the past, things surrounding their union got a lot scarier for fans after Fabolous was arrested for allegedly attacking his longtime love. The couple reportedly called off their 10-year relationship after that incident, but since then, they’ve gotten back together–much to the chagrin of all of us watching from the sidelines.

With that being said, it’s easy to see why some fans are skeptical when it comes to Fab and Emily’s relationship. That’s why a lot of people were absolutely ruthless when clowning the rapper over a recent tweet.

“Asking for a friend… how many times do you argue a day in a relationship,” the rapper asked. “Is once a day healthy???”

As most people know, arguing once a day, every day is….not healthy. And a lot of people have an inkling suspicion that the “friend” Fab is asking for is actually him.

The replies to this tweet were less than positive, and later on, when The Shade Room posted a screenshot of the rapper’s question, things got even more serious.

“If you knock out my teeth and I’m dumb enough to stay.. we’ll definitely be arguing every day,” one commenter wrote.

Someone else added, “Nah you’re mistaking a trauma mate for a soul mate.”

Fabolous even entered the comments to reply to those criticizing his relationship, claiming the whole inquiry was a joke from the jump. “Y’all know this was a joke tweet right. Oh ok. Carry on with y’all lives. I’ll do the same,” the rapper commented. “This why u can’t tweet no more & For 12,000 people to even comment like it’s serious is even more of a joke. But can’t lie Shade Room knows how to get y’all going. Everything is Love on this side. God Bless y’all.”

Capture Memories In An Instant With This Cute Instax Camera 

publish 10/20

 

Instant film cameras seem to be all the rage right now. Sure, the smartphones of today are far more superior when it comes to photo quality, but they can never replicate the vintage aesthetic instant cameras have. With a single snap, a physical representation of that very moment is automatically in your hands. The only real downside is that taking selfies without a front-facing camera can be quite a challenge — most of the time, it’s a total guessing game, and you won’t know until the photo develops if you’re even in the shot. Unless, of course, you’re using the Instax Mini 9.

Now on sale for 15 percent off, the Instax Mini 9 Camera lets you take and print adorable polaroid photos instantly. It has a selfie mirror installed next to the lens so you can check your framing and capture the perfect shot every time. It comes with a bonus close-up lens that you can use to capture extra zoomed-in photos, and a high-key mode that can take photos with a softer look. You don’t even need to have an eye for photography to navigate this little camera — it’ll automatically adjust the dial to determine the brightness level each time you shoot. There’s even a 10-pack of film included, so you can start experimenting with snaps right away.

Normally retailing for $129.95, you can grab the FujiFilm Instax Mini 9 Camera Bundle on sale today for $109.95.
