Not Good For Humanity


The latest chapter in the daily Kanye West saga took place on Thursday (Oct. 11), when the rapper/designer visited the White House for a meeting with President Donald Trump. With plenty of media outlets, photographers surrounding a seated Kanye and Trump in the oval office, the former went on a rant touching on various issues. West opened up prison reform, his love and support of Donald Trump, Colin Kaepernick, why he didn’t support Hilary Clinton, black democrats, plans to bring factories and manufacturing infrastructure to Chicago and more. Shortly after the 10-minute conversation aired live, T.I. took to Instagram blasting Kanye for going to the White House and his continued support of President Trump.

Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye and his antics,” said T.I. in a lengthy message. “Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight). But now this shit is next level, futuristic Sambo, Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!! From what I can gather… this is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation and auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen.”

He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

sevyn-1

Sevyn Streeter was scheduled to perform the U.S. National Anthem before tip-off of the Philadelphia 76ers home opener on Wednesday night (Oct. 26) vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder. Sadly, the moment was taken away from the 30-year-old singer, as she was informed by the NBA organization that they scrapped the performance due to her wearing a “We Matter” jersey. “I’m at the 76ers game singing the National Anthem and the organization is telling me I can’t because I’m wearing a ‘We Matter’ jersey,” said Sevyn in a video posted on Twitter.

“The Philadelphia 76ers organization encourages meaningful actions to drive social change,” said the 76ers organization in a statement released to Philadelphia’s ABC 6 Action News. “We use our games to bring people together, to build trust and to strengthen our communities. As we move from symbolic gestures to action, we will continue to leverage our platform to positively impact our community.”

In a video posted online, Sevyn is seen and heard practicing “The Star-Spangled Banner” hours before tip-off as Action News reporter Jeff Skversky gives a preview of the NBA matchup.

13-hours

13 Hours: The Secret Soliders of Benghazi..I mean…it can’t actually get worse than this, right? Michael Bay and assorted Hollywood slopchops deciding that they’re the right folks to turn the 2012 terrorist attack on the US embassy in Benghazi, Libya (that left 2 American diplomats and 2 CIA agents dead) into their own personal chest-thumping Zero Dark Transformers moment. Woo-Ah!

But Bay isn’t Kathryn Bigelow (although he does somewhat remind me of another Hollywood megalomanic, Bigelow’s former husband James Cameron). Michael Bay is the man who made last year’s important cultural contribution…the movie Ouija. Yes. Based on the board game for paranoid schizophrenics. Along with all the Transformers, Purges, Bad Boys (those were actually pretty good), and The Rock (again, a retro favorite but in hindsight, cheesy).

Judging from this fantastically cringe-worthy red-band trailer…Jim Halpert AND Roy Anderson from “The Office” (actors Jim Krasinski and David Denman) are two of the real life Navy Seals who rushed to the embassy after it was attacked, along with a few other B-level mall-heartthrobs, like “Pornstache” from “OITNB” (actor Pablo Schreiber, brother of Liev).

Just watch it, after the jump, and count the Michael Bay movie-franchise mashups…

Twitter is synonymous with twisted up panties, in that the twittersphere loves to lock arms and rage en masse when faced with a reason to be mad…sometimes that reason is real, sometimes it’s conflated. Today’s twitter scandal is a bit of both.

French Montana, the man who took Chinx under his wing, broke his silence and spoke out for the first time in an Instagram post, also thanking Jay Z for his words.

“The devil comes in all shapes and sizes and he’s ruthless. Life here is temporary. They will kill you for this lifestyle, if they can’t afford it jealousy is a motherfucker Protect yourself, protect the people you love. I’m sad to see my brother go out like this, one of the realest people I met. This shit’s not right. These streets don’t love us My prayers go to his kids and family.
