Kim Kardashian-West Opens Up About Kanye West, Asks for “Compassion”

Published

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 
K'ANYE

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

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.

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

mm

Published

on

After years of rumors, Ellen’s behind-the-scenes behavior is being shot into the mainstream, and… it isn’t pretty. The national uprisings have made the people bold. We’ve created a culture of protest, and that means workers are starting to speak out about the abuses they’ve faced, knowing that, honestly, it doesn’t get much worse than the lay-offs and cut hours they’ve already faced because of COVID-19. It all started with a Twitter thread:

Soon, the stories started pouring in. Before we knew it, Buzzfeed was busting this story wide open. “Ellen”, apparently, was a toxic work environment where there things like racism were allowed to float about unchecked. There were countless other reports of Ellen being a diva who didn’t want “unauthorized” people looking at her. Hell, they said she didn’t even tell her workers whether they’d be paid during the pandemic. She cried an apology.

Ellen DeGeneres
“Ellen”

This weekend, the nail met the coffin as a number of outlets reported that James Corden was posed to replace Ellen. Nearly all publications were quick to suggest that this is just rumor, since Ellen is set to return to her show soon, but rumors come from somewhere. I’ve worked in and around Hollywood for a long time. Ms. Ellen’s business wouldn’t be in these streets if WarnerMedia wasn’t planning to put her out there with it.

If you wanna learn more. The Washington Post’s nosey ass has all the details. In the meantime, please enjoy these tweets: #TiffanyPollardForEllen

50 Cent Apologizes To Megan Thee Stallion for Jokes About Shooting

mm

Published

on

50 Cent did something he doesn’t ever do, no not respect Black women, but he finally apologized for his trash jokes on social media. 50 cent and other male celebrities joined in on the jokes and memes of Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident.

This is was what he had to say via his Instagram.

“Damn I didn’t think this s**t was real,🤦‍♂️It sounded so crazy,” the rapper captioned a clip from Meg’s IG Live. “@theestallion I’m glad your feeling better and I hope you can accept my apology. I posted a meme that was floating around. I wouldn’t have done that if I knew you was really hurt. Sorry.”

It’s the “I wouldn’t have done that if I knew you was really hurt.” for me. Why do you need Black women to validate that they are hurt for you to show some respect? She was shot. SHOT! What’s not clicking? This isn’t the first and probably won’t be the last time he clowns a Black woman. Remember where he made ignorant comments about all Black women being angry?

No word if Megan has accepted the apology or not. She doesn’t need to.

Thoughts?
