B. Simone Addresses Plagiarism After Blogger Accuses Her of Stealing Content

B.Simone’s week just got harder, over the weekend Ell of Boss Girl Bloggers provided receipts of her copying her work. This happened after B.Simone was called out for her tweets about the George Floyd protests. “Doing your part is more than social media! Doing you part is loving your neighbors, praying for the enemy, calling your blk friends N Checking on them, signing petitions, donating, meditating, looking in the mirror and becoming better. B4 i try to lead let me examine myself!”

Some of these tweets were later deleted but not before sis let us know that she is a Christian.

Well, sis must’ve forgotten about the Ten Commandments, “Thou shalt not steal.” Fellow blogger Ell called her out for plagiarizing her hard work.

Ell isn’t alone… There are claims of plagiarism from at least 3 other creatives, @happinessplannr, @themorningbuzz_ and Visionpreneur.

Her manager Skittlez, who also has a history of her own, offered a response to the accusations and made mention that she is in a lawsuit with the firm but her company was responsible for hiring the the people to do the book.

Yeah, we’re confused as well. Many have pointed out that Skittlez isn’t the best person to represent her brand considering she blatantly committed purgery and lost her case on Judge Faith.

Now B.Simone is taking full responsibility for the alleged plagiarizing with an “apology” and has added that she is no longer selling the book during this time.

Social has had mixed reactions to the “apology” but at least Meek Mill has her back.

Thoughts?

Published

on

Actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for his role as King T’Challa in the box office smash “Black Panther” passed away from colon cancer Friday.

The actor was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016, but remained active in his career with much of his work being released post-diagnosis. A statement from his family confirmed that he continued to work despite his cancer progressing, befitting a man who brought America’s first Black superhero to the silver screen. 

As the news of the actor’s death spread, many took to social media to share their condolences. 

The tributes continue to flood in as news of his passing continues to ripple through. Read the official statement from his family below.

“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.

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.”

Steve Bannon Arrested on Border Wall Fundraising Scheme

Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s former political adviser, and three other leaders of the“We Build the Wall” online fundraising campaign have been indicted on wire fraud and money laundering charges by federal prosecutors. 

Federal agents and officials from the United States Postal Inspection arrested Bannon while he was on a boat located off the eastern coast of Connecticut.


Bannon is expected to make his initial court appearance in New York later today, according to the US attorney’s office. Bannon’s attorney, Bill Burck, declined to comment on the matter. 

Audrey Strauss, acting Manhattan U.S attorney, issued the following statement: 

“As alleged, the defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors, capitalizing on their interest in funding a border wall to raise millions of dollars, under the false pretense that all of that money would be spent on construction. While repeatedly assuring donors that Brian Kolfage, the founder and public face of We Build the Wall, would not be paid a cent, the defendants secretly schemed to pass hundreds of thousands of dollars to Kolfage, which he used to fund his lavish lifestyle. We thank the USPIS for their partnership in investigating this case, and we remain dedicated to rooting out and prosecuting fraud wherever we find it.” 

According to the charges, Kolfage—one of the crowdfunding organizers, spent more than $350,000 of the donations on personal expenses. These expenses include a luxury SUV, a golf cart, cosmetic surgery, home renovations, jewelry, personal tax payments,  and credit card debt. 

The four individuals being charged—Bannon, Kolfage, Andrew Badolato, and Timothy Shea—are charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, CNN reports
