Killer Mike Lets Us Know He Didn’t Actually See Black Panther in His Appearance on NRA TV

So, I log on to Twitter yesterday expecting everyone to be talking about Netflix’s new movie Roxanne Roxanne when I realize the Internet is actually buzzing about Killer Mike’s appearance on NRA TV.

In case you aren’t familiar with Killer Mike, he’s a rapper turned political caricature. I honestly cannot tell you what song he’s best known for, and I can’t tell you about his lyrical prowess. I, can, however, tell you about how he used his Blackness to accessorize Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. I can also tell you about how he criticized the two Black women activists who interrupted Sanders’ Seattle rally in August 2015. I can tell you about how he slammed Clinton’s response to the #BlackLivesMatter interruption while implying that Sanders’ response was polite and welcoming, even though the Black women who interrupted Sanders vehemently disagreed with Mike’s account. I can also tell you about how he said that a uterus doesn’t qualify a person to become president, reducing Clinton’s more than 20-year career in politics to an organ that denotes her femaleness and not her actual credentials.

I can’t understand why Killer Mike, who claims to support the equality of Black people would attach his brand to an organization that has worked to perpetuate the fear of Black people. Click To Tweet

Following a long line of questionable political choices, Killer Mike decided to lend his voice to the NRA in support of gun ownership. Feel how you feel about guns, I am not going to argue Killer Mike’s stance. I will, however, argue against his choice to support yet another political machine that does not at all care about Black people. I can’t understand why Killer Mike, who claims to support the equality of Black people would attach his brand to an organization that has worked to perpetuate the fear of Black people which has led to so many unarmed Black men and women being murdered by over-zealous gun owners.

I know he remembers the NRA’s silence after the murder of licensed gun owner Philando Castile at the hands of Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez (who by the way was acquitted for his crime last summer). And he has to remember mommy-blogger turned NRA Spokesperson, Dana Loesch’s call for “action” against people who went against Trump to which the Black co-president of the Women’s March, Tamika Mallory, responded with an open letter denouncing what was clearly a call for violence against Black and Brown people.

Historically, that 2nd amendment everyone loves to pull out to support gun ownership has always been centered on White gun ownership, and most of the gun control regulations passed (with the support of the NRA) have been done to limit gun ownership by people of color. In case you don’t believe me, check out History Channel’s article about the NRA’s complicity in Regan-era Mulford Act.

Y’all think Killer Mike knew all of this before he sat on NRA TV and used whatever credibility he has left to support an organization that seems to be directly opposed to everything he claims to stand for?

To add insult to injury — as if all of this wasn’t bad enough — this fool had the audacity to say they had guns in Wakanda, which only tells me that he clearly didn’t see Black Panther. They have Vibranium in Wakanda, you dummy, why would they need guns?

Back to Da Cell! ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Alum Apollo Nida Arrested AGAIN After Violating Parole

mm

Published

on

Apollo Nida just celebrated his release from prison last week and now the RHOA alum is behind bars again! According to Page Six, US Marshals detained Apollo for breaking a technical condition of his release.

Having just finished five years behind bars, Nida was headed for a prison release program. But now he’ll have to postpone reuniting with his children and fiance because he violated his probation. According to a representative, Nida isn’t quite arrested, but there “was an order of the court bring him into custody”. While the terms of Apollo’s release aren’t public, he was allegedly detained for violating conditions of his release.

Apollo, who was released early due to credit for time served, was initially sentenced to 96-months behind bars. He was expected to complete a prison release program in Philadelphia. Now, it’s questionable what the future holds for the two-time felon.

Apollo’s fiance, Sherien Almufti hasn’t released a formal statement explaining what happened. However, she did post a recent photo of herself and Nida on Instagram with a scathing caption calling out his probation officer. Sherien said “For those who are confused @apollonida03 didn’t violate a goddamn thing. Another crime against a black man in the system. Jealousy is a disease and his PO will die mad!!”

Chris Brown Dragged For Insulting Victor Cruz, Karrueche Tran

mm

Published

on

Chris Brown’s recent behavior is a lesson that domestic violence has no limitations. The singer and proven abuser has shown his true colors again by leaving harassing comments beneath Victor Cruz’s Instagram post.

Targeting the fashion sense of Karrueche’s longtime boyfriend Victor Cruz, Chris Brown left several disparaging comments in close succession. Stating he needed a stylist and she should “upgrade ya man,” Chris Brown is still attacking his ex after five years of separation.

The one-time couple split in 2015 after a very public shouting match following Karrueche’s discovery that Chris fathered a love child with Nia Guzman, a stripper from Texas. During the lengthy argument, Chris forced himself into Karrueche’s vehicle and despite being dropped off at a different location, he arrived at her home to argue at 3 am. This led to Karrueche securing a restraining order against the singer in 2017, approved for 5 years.

During the hearing where Karrueche petitioned for a restraining order against Chris Brown, she provided evidence of threatening messages and testified that Chris had physically abused her. To make matters worse the physical violence took place while Chris Brown was on probation for the brutal abuse of Rihanna! The text messages Karrueche received contained threats like “Bitch I will beat the sh*t out of you” and “I will make your life hell.”

The comments Chris made beneath the photo of Karrueche and Victor were not light humor. In the past, Chris Brown left threatening messages beneath a photo of Tran and Michael B. Jordan. Stating “Imma kill blood”, Chris Brown threatened her and the actors lives, making good on his promise to “make you hate me even more.”

Fans of Karrueche were quick to point out how childish and threatening Chris Brown’s messages were. But what’s more important is that Chris Brown’s comments may violate the terms of his restraining order. If Karrueche’s terms include clauses for social media use, CB could be in trouble. Karrueche’s current order doesn’t expire until 2022, so maybe the singer should focus on backflips before he lands in jail.

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?
