Dwight Howard and his team are facing the heat after allegations of death threats to his ex-boyfriend have come to light. Fed up with abuse, Twitter user @MasinElije created a thread that has everyone talking.

Detailing months of an undercover relationship, Masin Elijè outed Dwight Howard’s sexual preference for trans women and feminine gay men. Social media is engulfed with shock and outrage over Dwight’s orientation. With such a stigma surrounding a refusal to conform to heteronormativity, the wave of criticism comes as no surprise. While the straights are caught up in who he likes, the real issue lies in allegations of abuse and threats to a gay man.

Love at First Sight

Masin says he met Dwight Howard on the set of Wild N Out. The exchanged glances which led to Dwight sliding into his DM’s. Not wanting to risk their conversation being leaked, Masin insisted Dwight switch to his “finsta” (fake) page. They talked for weeks on end, exchanging risqué photos, and video calling one another on Instagram. “Time went by and shit started getting serious!” Masin exclaimed.

“He was fine, 6’11”, goofy, very charming, NO WIFE, and NEVER been married so of course I was interested.”

Everything seemed to be going well and eventually they met face-to-face.

While they weren’t able to be with each other as he was on the road in-season, they called one another regularly. Dwight appealed to Masin, encouraging him to put himself at ease and cast away his doubts. For a time, things were smooth, but Masin suspected Dwight was being unfaithful. It turns out he was right. Not only was he seeing someone else, but the other woman was hosting transgender sex parties.

Things Fall Apart

At this point, their relationship was over, especially after he threatened to “beat the sh*t” out of Masin. Following their fallout, anonymous calls began to flood his phone. Most notable was a call from Calvin who works for Dwight. During their relationship, Masin alleges that he was presented with an NDA he refused to sign. Now that things has fallen apart, Calvin was pressing Masin to sign the NDA and take the money.

“So at this point, I am afraid for my life. I’m panicking. I’m having anxiety attacks and for a whole week I was bullied by Dwight’s team and Dwight Howard stood there and allowed his team to harass me.”

Many are taking Masin’s claims with a grain of salt. In 2017, he was caught in a scandal involving Atlanta rapper, Playboi Carti. Masin posted screenshots of an Instagram conversation with Carti that sparked rumors regarding his sexuality.

Noname Drops “Song 33” in Response to J. Cole Diss

Published

on

Chicago musician Noname has responded to J. Cole in her latest release “Song 33.” If you recall, two days ago we broke down the Noname/J.Cole beef and why many were calling Cole’s controversial song “Snow on Tha Bluff” misogynist and patriarchal. Noname appears to address the diss track and more on her latest release “Song 33.”

As soon as you press play the track hits you right in the feels. A sample saying “Oh, I have ambitions, dreams / But dreams don’t come cheap” opens the song, then immediately we listen to Noname discuss the patriarchal society in which Black women are forced to exist – a society that undervalues and ignores Black women. She said Oluwatoyin Salu’s name.

I saw a demon on my shoulder / it’s looking like patriarchy

Like scrubbing blood off the ceiling and bleaching another carpet

She takes aim at J. Cole for staying silent while Black women routinely “go missing,” yet immediately having something to say when she called him out on it. 

One girl missing another one go missing / One girl missing another

But niggas in the back quiet as a church mouse / Basement studio when duty calls to get the verse out

Noname lists all the brutalities happening to Black people and Black women while at the same time, calling him to action. She reminds us Black women are going missing. 

I guess the ego hurt now / It’s time to go to work / Wow

Look at him go / He really ‘bout to write about me when the world is in smokes?

When it’s people in trees?

She then criticizes the internet at large for being too easily distracted by the “beef” and losing sight of “the new world order.” 

It’s trans women being murdered and this is all he can offer?

And this is all y’all receive? / Distracting you from the convo wit organizers

They talkin abolishing the police

This the new world order

Noname has always been an outspoken champion for Black women’s rights, often bringing attention to crimes committed against Black women that regularly go unheard. In her response to J. Cole, the musician again uses her platform to not only highlight the inherent patriarchy that causes so many Black female victims of violent crime to go unnoticed and forgotten, but to also galvanize Cole, to publicly and boldly challenge him and everyone listening to be the vanguards of a more just and equitable society. 

Noname’s call to action is one that has been repeated by women of color for years. Tarana Burke (below), a woman of color and the founder of the “Me Too” Movement, initially began saying the phrase to remind women of color that they are not alone when they struggle with coping with sexual harassment and sexual assault. 

Kimberlé Crenshaw (below), another woman of color and an outspoken feminist and civil rights activist, coined the term “intersectionality” to explain the myriad obstacles Black women face in society and how those obstacles compound on one another to create a unique brand of discrimination against them.

As we take each and every day, but especially this Juneteenth, to reflect on the painful history of the United States and remember the priceless cost of freedom, we must heed Noname’s call and begin to acknowledge the ways we Black Americans are not free, the ways Black women are not free. 

And we must do it in a QUEEN TONE!!!
