Kim Kardashian-West has taken to her Instagram story to beg us all to have compassion for her… hold on…

Hey, Google! How much is Kanye West worth?

Google’s response:

"NYE WEST / NET WORTH 
1.3 billio USD 
Jeff Kravitz

She wants y’all to have compassion for her billionaire husband. Look, I’m a writer, but I’m not James Baldwin or Toni Morrison. I wont beat you over the head with anti-Capitalist rhetoric, but please, if there’s anything you take from me, let it be that you are not required to have compassion for a billionaire. He’ll be fine without your compassion. He can’t hear your compassionate replies from on top of all that money. But, in case you want to hear her out, here’s what she posted:

As many of you know, Kanye 
has bi—polar disorder . 
Anyone who has this or has 
a loved one in their life 
who does, knows how 
incredibly complicated and 
painful it is to 
understand. I' ve never 
spoken publicly about how 
this has affected us at 
home because I am very 
protective of our children 
and Kanye' s right to 
privacy when it comes to 
his health. But today, I 
feel like I should comment 
on it because of the stigma 
and misconceptions about 
mental health. 
Those that unders tand 
mental illness or even 
compulsive behavior know 
that the family is 
powerless unless the member 
is a minor. People who are 
unaware or far removed from 
this experience can be 
judgmental and not 
understand that the 
individual themselves have 
to engage in the process of 
getting help no matter how 
hard family and friends 
Send Message
I understand Kanye is 
subject to criticism 
because he is a public 
figure and his actions at 
times can cause strong 
opinions and emotions. He 
is a brilliant but 
complicated person who on 
top of the pressures of 
being an artist and a black 
man, who experienced the 
painful loss of his mother , 
and has to deal with the 
pressure and isolation that 
is heightened by his bi- 
polar disorder. Those who 
are close with Kanye know 
his heart and understand 
his words some times do not 
align with his intentions . 
Living with bi—polar 
disorder does not diminish 
or invalidate his dreams 
and his creative ideas, no 
matter how big or 
unobtainable they may feel 
to some. That is part of 
his genius and as we have 
all witnessed, many of his 
xg reams ave come rue . 
Send Message
We as a society talk about 
giving grace to the issue 
of mental health as a 
whole, however we should 
also give it to the 
individuals who are living 
with it in times when they 
need it the most. I kindly 
ask that the media and 
public give us the 
compassion and empathy that 
is needed so that we can 
get through this . Thank 
you for those who have 
expressed concern for 
Kanye' s well being and for 
your unders tanding. 
With Love and Gratitude , 
Kim Kardashian West

So, it seems that Kim Kardashian can recognize that he’s a Black man now. That’s great. Except that there are plenty of Black men in the world who don’t, bipolar or not, verbally attack Black women in crowds. I implore you, readers, please save your compassion for the bipolar people who don’t have the resources that Kanye does.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share News of the Loss of Their Unborn Child

Published

on

Early Thursday morning Chrissy Teigen and John Legend let the world know of the loss of their unborn child. In a heartfelt and heartbreaking post to social media, Teigen described her and husband John Legend’s “deep pain you only hear about.” She went on to talk about how the couple does not typically name their children “until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before (they) leave the hospital,” but somehow they fell on the name “Jack.”

The heartbreaking news comes just days after first being admitted to the hospital for what she described as heavy bleeding. However, two days ago, she assured fans that both her and baby were healthy and doing well. Teigen, no stranger to social media, continued to engage her following, giving brief updates along the way, when shortly after midnight she shared photos of her and John in the hospital cradling their newborn in the immediate aftermath.

While her husband has remained largely unproblematic and scandal-free, Teigen has been the frequent target of scathing criticism – much of which is completely valid. From her ridiculing Black hair, to her seemingly mocking intimate partner violence when she referenced Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez’s incident, Chrissy Teigen has been the focus of such harsh vitriol that she has threatened to quit social media altogether on multiple occasions. Sharing such personal news with the world may come as a surprise to many. 

Overwhelmingly, however, the internet’s response has been positive and embracing. Celebrities and non-celebs alike have offered words of support to the couple as they go through this difficult time. See both the model’s post and the heartwarming responses to it below.

Actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for his role as King T’Challa in the box office smash “Black Panther” passed away from colon cancer Friday.

The actor was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016, but remained active in his career with much of his work being released post-diagnosis. A statement from his family confirmed that he continued to work despite his cancer progressing, befitting a man who brought America’s first Black superhero to the silver screen. 

As the news of the actor’s death spread, many took to social media to share their condolences. 

The tributes continue to flood in as news of his passing continues to ripple through. Read the official statement from his family below.

“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.

Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.

A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.

It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther. 

He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.

The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”

When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison

mm

Published

on

Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.

The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.

Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.

“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
