Chrissy Teigen Has Done It Again and Twitter is Not Happy

Published

on

Friday evening model Chrissy Teigen tweeted what many considered an insensitive joke about rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

By now, you know that Meg was shot at a recent pool party at which Tory Lanez, also a rapper, and Kylie Jenner were in attendance. Based on the various social media posts (and deletes) from Meg, her friend, who was also at the party, and others, we can infer that Tory is the one who shot her. For some reason, even though this woman is the victim of a violent crime and has come out publicly to say she is not okay and needs space to process and heal from what happened, people keep coming for her, making light of her situation.

Enter: Chrissy Teigen.

The model, who is no stranger to Twitter drama, hopped on a trend of punny jokes that had been circulating all day. Puns like “I have an archaeology joke but nobody digs it,” “I have a journalism joke, I’m sorry to report” were the general gist of the thread. Chrissy Teigen, apparently thought tweeting “I have a megan thee stallion joke but it needs to be twerked on” was along the same lines.

Naturally, Teigen knew she would get blowback for her tweet because she immediately told the internet she loves Meg. Less than a half hour later, she was doing what she does best: whining about the just criticism she receives after she does or says something problematic – only this time, she took her temper tantrum up a notch by making her account private.

That didn’t stop the internet from dragging her well into Saturday. Look at some of these reactions.

What do you think about her tweet? Is the backlash she is receiving justified? We certainly think so. Let us know in the comments below.

Frank Ocean’s brother, Ryan Breaux, 18, was in a fatal car crash in Thousand Oaks, California this Sunday. His identity has not yet been confirmed by the medical examiner, but friends on the scene identified him to ABC7 News. An outpouring of support and well-wishes followed. (As well as the usual insensitivity.)

We here at King Of Reads want to wish Frank Ocean and his family well in this time of grieving. So much is happening in this world, we only hope they can find a moment of peace in the near future.

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

Published

on

After years of rumors, Ellen’s behind-the-scenes behavior is being shot into the mainstream, and… it isn’t pretty. The national uprisings have made the people bold. We’ve created a culture of protest, and that means workers are starting to speak out about the abuses they’ve faced, knowing that, honestly, it doesn’t get much worse than the lay-offs and cut hours they’ve already faced because of COVID-19. It all started with a Twitter thread:

Soon, the stories started pouring in. Before we knew it, Buzzfeed was busting this story wide open. “Ellen”, apparently, was a toxic work environment where there things like racism were allowed to float about unchecked. There were countless other reports of Ellen being a diva who didn’t want “unauthorized” people looking at her. Hell, they said she didn’t even tell her workers whether they’d be paid during the pandemic. She cried an apology.

Ellen DeGeneres
“Ellen”

This weekend, the nail met the coffin as a number of outlets reported that James Corden was posed to replace Ellen. Nearly all publications were quick to suggest that this is just rumor, since Ellen is set to return to her show soon, but rumors come from somewhere. I’ve worked in and around Hollywood for a long time. Ms. Ellen’s business wouldn’t be in these streets if WarnerMedia wasn’t planning to put her out there with it.

If you wanna learn more. The Washington Post’s nosey ass has all the details. In the meantime, please enjoy these tweets: #TiffanyPollardForEllen

50 Cent Apologizes To Megan Thee Stallion for Jokes About Shooting

Published

50 Cent did something he doesn’t ever do, no not respect Black women, but he finally apologized for his trash jokes on social media. 50 cent and other male celebrities joined in on the jokes and memes of Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident.

This is was what he had to say via his Instagram.

“Damn I didn’t think this s**t was real,🤦‍♂️It sounded so crazy,” the rapper captioned a clip from Meg’s IG Live. “@theestallion I’m glad your feeling better and I hope you can accept my apology. I posted a meme that was floating around. I wouldn’t have done that if I knew you was really hurt. Sorry.”

It’s the “I wouldn’t have done that if I knew you was really hurt.” for me. Why do you need Black women to validate that they are hurt for you to show some respect? She was shot. SHOT! What’s not clicking? This isn’t the first and probably won’t be the last time he clowns a Black woman. Remember where he made ignorant comments about all Black women being angry?

No word if Megan has accepted the apology or not. She doesn’t need to.

Thoughts?
