Draya Michele Offers Apology after Joking about Megan Thee Stallion being Shot

Published

Draya Michele has pissed off the nice girl of hip-hop. On an interview for the “Wine and Weed” podcast, Draya joked about wanting a love like the one between Tory and Megan. She went on to suggest that they have a “Bobby and Whitney” relationship. When one of the hosts pointed out that she had likely just gone viral, she shrugged:

Draya isn’t dumb. She’s smart enough to be on our lips without an ounce of talent to her name. So, she was well aware that her statements were wrong. Megan Thee Stallion knew, too. She responded:

Megan Thee Stallion is one of the nicest women in hip-hop. She has worked with Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and so many other artists who have had nothing but kind things to say about her, her work ethic, and even her mother, when she was alive. Draya isn’t dumb. She knew that what she was saying would hurt an already hurt person. She knew there would be backlash. She wanted that. Yet, we still got an apology that Megan has yet to accept.

I hope, for Megan’s sake, that Draya decides to work on her parenting, rather than picking on a much younger person for being the victim of intimate partner violence.

UPDATE: Draya offers apology after social media backlash.


We can only hope that Draya follows through with her words and “uplifts” Black women. It’s so sad that she’s had to be dragged to hella and back for us to get this apology, but we’ll be watching and ready to read.

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.)

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

mm

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?
