Bhad Bhabie, the 16 year-old rapper who rose to fame as a guest on the television show “Dr. Phil” (“cash me ousside, how ‘bout dat” ring a bell?) recently took to Instagram to publicly shame boxer and rapper Adrien Broner, 30, for sending her a cringy dm.
The underage rapper posted a screenshot of an Instagram message sent from Broner’s official account. “Text me crazy girl” was all he messaged before Bhad Bhabie, whose real name is Danielle Bregoli, shared with her nearly 17.5 million followers the screenshot and a clip of the song “Locked Up” by Akon.
Defending himself, Broner told The Shade Room the message was an “honest mistake” saying nobody wants to date a kid.” He went even further saying both Instagram and the teenager are to blame for his mistake. “I fault Instagram for not having people’s age on their profile. I thought she was grown the way she out here moving.”
Many online came for Broner in the comments of his most recent post on the social media platform. “Text me crazy girl” here, @fbi there (at this point he should probably turn his comments off until this dies down). His ex-girlfriend Arie Nicole even posted “I done told him to find a step mama not a step child” with several tears of joy emojis following.
Those supporting him are far fewer and considerably less vocal – understandable since these people are coming to the defense of a man who in 2016 was charges with misdemeanor battery, in 2018 was charged with sexual battery, and in 2019 was ordered to pay $830,000 to a woman claiming he sexually assaulted her. More disturbing than his troubled past is his inability to take responsibility for his mistake by instead blaming a child for his actions.
Time and time again we have seen women and girls be scapegoated for the misdeeds of men. The fact that a man nearly twice as old Bhad Bhabie put the blame for his very questionable behavior on her shows women’s roles in society have not changed even as America becomes more and more progressive. But that leads us to a whole different topic for another day.

Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison
Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.
The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.
Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.
“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
