Sources close to Jussie Smollett shared news of the attack with TMZ. The actor was beaten, suffering a broken rib, and had his head placed in a noose.

Two White males wearing ski masks attacked Jussie Smollett while he was out in Chicago. Having just arrived from New York, the actor wanted to grab a bite to eat around 2 AM, and ventured to a Subway. According to TMZ, as he walked out someone yelled, “Aren’t you that f*gg*t ‘Empire’ n*gg*r?”

As they attacked Jussie, they screamed “This is MAGA country!” and poured bleach on him. The actor attempted to stand his ground and fight back, but suffered several injuries, including a broken rib. Jussie was taken to Northwestern Memorial for treatment. However, he was released early Tuesday morning.

Eight days ago, Fox Studios in Chicago received threatening letters. First posted by ThatGrapeJuice.Net, the letters were comprised of magazines cut out to spell “You will die Black f*g.”

As of now, law enforcement officials with Chicago PD are investigating the incident as battery and are pursuing the assailants to charge them with a hate crime.

Taraji Saving Black Lives

Published

UPI

Taraji P. Henson has been a leader in our community by shedding light on the reality of mental health for black youth. On June 7th, 2019, Henson testified on Capitol Hill during the Congressional Black Caucus Taskforce forum on suicide among black youth. Specifically, Henson brought the room into deep thought when she reflected on her own experiences.

Henson’s father Boris Lawrence Henson passed away in 2006. Prior to that, Henson’s son’s father was murdered in Washington D.C. Now, these two traumatic events have affected her but it has also fostered a wealth of issues for her son. As a result, things get worse when young people are not able to vocalize their hurt and pain.

In her statement, Henson stated, “We’ve been taught to pray our problems away.” Henson is making it known that in the African-American community we do not discuss mental health. Instead, we let our emotions build up. If the problem is not addressed it will always be there. There will be strings attached if one doesn’t confront what is holding them back from prospering in life.

Lastly, a few years ago, Henson launched the Boris Lawrence Henson foundation with a goal to eliminate any stigmas associated with mental health. Mental health should be normalized and it should be taught in schools just like Henson stated in her statement.

I recommend everyone to watch her statement.

Spotted in the vehicle as TMZ ran up for a potentially staged paparazzi session, Wendy’s mystery man was been a hot topic. Fans of the talk show host and those supporting her best life as she divorces Kevin Hunter, want to know who her flavor of the month is. Thanks to Bossip, we now know that 54-year-old Williams is getting cozy with a 27-year old named Marc Tomblin.

Bossip discovered the identify of Wendy’s new man and quickly uncovered his criminal history. While Wendy is aware of his muddy past, she says she knows what she’s doing. Let’s hope, sis!

Wendy’s new beau is a convicted felon who claims to be a financial investigator and blogger according to his LinkedIn profile. But before he hooked up with Wendy, Tomblin was arrested for robbery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering. Still, Wendy doesn’t care about his past and is declaring it a hot girl summer with the rest of us.

Ms. Wendy Thee Show Pony called out Kevin for having “a full baby with a woman he was involved with for 15 years” while keeping her cooped up. Proud to be living her best life, Wendy is just enjoying Marc Tomblin’s company despite their May-December age difference.

As for whether things will ever get serious for her again, Wendy says not so fast! During a recent taping of The Wendy Williams Show, she gushed about her newfound freedom. Stating, “I don’t have a boyfriend, but I must admit I am rediscovering my love of men.”, Wendy has made it clear she’s not looking for a long time, just a good one.

Are you here for the new Wendy?

Family Affair: Rob Kardashian Accused of Stealing Designs, Pulls Merch

mm

Published

on

It’s in the name! Rob Kardashian’s clothing line, Halfway Dead, is on life support after accusations that the brand has pilfered designs. Less than a week after launching the company with some assistance from Kylie Jenner, Rob has had to remove several designs from their inventory.

Halfway Dead’s statement

Fans of the independent artist Rx Skulls attacked Rob Kardashian for stealing an integral design from his catalogue. A grinning skull, which is the focal point of Rx Skulls merchandise, was featured prominently on Rob’s gear. Actively promoted on social media, the logo that Rob Kardashian’s brand co-opted was slapped onto hoodies and other items on the website unbeknownst to the street artist. But Rob did the honest thing once comparisons between the brands were made and reached out to the artist to make things right.

A post shared by Rx Skulls (@rxskulls) on

It’s foolish to think that he’d have no contact with the graphic designers who crafted the Halfway Dead logo. Still, Rob gathered his team and explained to Rx Skulls how the slip-up occured. While the street artist has taken it all in stride, he only has Rob’s word that the merch won’t be sold. In the meantime, Halfway Dead is going to have to return to the drawing board for original ways to replace the stock.

Strange how this family is continuously accused of stealing from small designers, isn’t it? Do you think Rob had ill intentions? Or was it just a misunderstanding?
