During an interview with Hot 97, Ebro asked Kodak questions about his criminal past. Things went smoothly until Ebro mentioned the seriousness of sexual assault allegations.
At the beginning of the segment, Ebro posed an interesting question to Kodak for which he had no answer.
“When you look at all the stuff that you’ve got on your rap sheet, everything that you’ve been charged with, how much do you take accountability for?”
“Everything that you’ve been charged with.” At the time, Kodak may have only been thinking about misdemeanor drug charges. Ebro had specifically mentioned marijuana possession and alluded to “different things” Kodak had been going through.
Kodak was obliged to answer the Hot 97 crew’s questions, but it wasn’t until the focus was shifted to sexual assault that he got uneasy. Ending the interview, in a huff, Kodak said:
“I feel like sometimes when n*ggas like me going through sh*t, like, y’all be entertained by bullsh*t.”
Indicted on sexual misconduct charges, Kodak could face 30 years in prison if convicted. He stands accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in a hotel. Allegedly biting her neck and breast before the assault, prosecutors claim he also pushed her into a wall. With the trial tentatively scheduled for April 2019, Kodak is avoiding any discussion surrounding the case.
Far to go
Following the release of the interview, many of Kodak’s fans took to social media to support the artist. Showing that the hip hop community is not prepared to call out misogyny and abusive behavior, his fanbase began attacking Ebro. Still, many stood in Ebro’s defense. Despite the rise of the #MeToo movement, hip-hop is still ages behind in terms of inclusive progression. Twitter users echoed the same sentiments with statements like these:
I find it so very interesting that people of Blackness will rightfully vilify Nicki Minaj for dating a rapist, yet ignore Kodak Black being one himself. There are terms for this, right?

People being furious at Ebro for telling Kodak Black "We take sexual assault seriously here" is proof there's a lack of guidance out here. People whose job is interviewing musicians are supposed to ask hard questions. But that wasn't a hard question. That was just accountability.

In his defense, Ebro had this to say in regards to the touchy subject:
I was tryna have a balanced convo with Kodak Black & not ignore the serious allegations against him but also not ask specifics to make his situation worse… and he wanna get an attitude with me?? Nah….

Do you think Ebro was out of line? In what ways could Kodak have responded better?

J.K. Rowling Gets Dragged After Saying Dumbledore and Grindelwald had “Intense” Relationship
JK Rowling must be taking her cues from Tumblr fan fics. In news that no one expected, JK revealed Dumbledore and Grindelwald were once involved in an “intense sexual relationship.” But fans are scratching their heads wondering why her characters are never openly gay in the films or the books.
Stemming from a thread that quotes the author, Rowling revealed she was “less interested in the sexual side.” Recent updates show that JK must be far more interested than she’s leading on and fans aren’t having it! The response to this new information has readers saying “Wingardium Leviosa” to her wig.
Chief among her fans complaints is the lack of queer representation in her novels coupled with her frequent highly sexual updates that serve as attempts to maintain relevance. In addition, her extra details frequently complicate what readers already know from the books. In September 2018, one reveal inadvertently made Neville Longbottom a murderer.
Fans of her beloved wizarding world have been shading her endlessly since the unwarranted reveal, but JK has yet to respond to any of the criticism.
Disney Alum Kyle Massey Hit With $1.5 Million Sexual Misconduct Lawsuit
Say it ain’t so! That’s So Raven star Kyle Massey has been sued for sending sexually explicit messages to a teenage girl.
According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Massey is being sued for $1.5 million in a civil suit. The girl, who Massey met at just 4-years-old, claims the former Disney star maintained contact to help advance her career. Now, at age 13, she has come forward with allegations.
She claims that Massey had arranged for her to stay with him and his girlfriend, Hana Giraldo, in Los Angeles. Massey was allegedly using this visit to help the minor secure an agent. But just days after the invitation, Massey sent the alleged victim photos of his genitalia.
The lawsuit states that he is being sued for three counts of negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Included as negligence is the attempt to commit a lewd act with a minor, annoying or molesting a minor, and harmful matter sent with intent of seduction of a minor.
While Massey himself has yet to comment on the matter, both his brother and mother have spoken out. Massey’s mother went to Instagram to defend her son, stating “KYLE MASSEY IS THE VICTIM! Where is the justice for men?!” While Massey’s brother, Christopher, alleges that the victim’s mother Kindra Adams is a known scammer and is only doing this for money.
