Lizzo Gets Booted From Her Vacation Rental

Published

Unfortunately, money and fame can’t save us from anti-Blackness and discrimination. Lizzo took to Instagram, not just to let us all know that she had been evicted from her vacation rental three days early, but to let us know that she’d already moved on to another (better) house. Of course, Lizzo being Lizzo, twerking was involved.

Though everything turned out as well as can be expected in the end, the details of this incident are quite strange. Rich people may not be exempt from anti-Blackness, but celebrities are seldom forced to endure such blatant acts of discrimination in modern times. As many of her fans point out in the comments of the video, her presence there raises the worth of the estate/ business. There’s a reason dry-cleaners hang pictures of their celebrity clients on the walls. So, it’s rather odd to be reporting on something like this and have it attached to an internationally acclaimed pop-star.

Lizzo Truth Hurts

Now, let’s be real here for a minute. Lizzo’s weight plays a role here. Fat Black women aren’t allowed to be happy in our society. So, I’m not entirely shocked that she might be experiencing more anti-Black discrimination than her skinny counterparts. That said, it seems the current uprisings have gotten the palest of us riled up. We know that we’re all at risk, but I implore people to keep in mind that fat Black people represent the kind of Blackness that DeWhights can’t ignore and will target. If it can happen to Lizzo, the rest of us really have no hope to escape it. Stay vigilant.

Frank Ocean’s brother, Ryan Breaux, 18, was in a fatal car crash in Thousand Oaks, California this Sunday. His identity has not yet been confirmed by the medical examiner, but friends on the scene identified him to ABC7 News. An outpouring of support and well-wishes followed. (As well as the usual insensitivity.)

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

Published

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

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?
