Mike Epps decided to give his take on black people in Hollywood after seeing Kevin Hart explain why Katt Williams isn’t “that guy” anymore. Mike Epps took to Instagram to explain that while black people in the entertainment industry are getting more work, they’re essentially the gatekeepers and that white people in Hollywood own the house. Epps dived in and said,
“… 90 percent of the black entertainments got in the business through another black person i know I did and you did 2 ! You started off as work for hire let’s not forget Gate keeper so don’t start getting cute about your money and accomplishments in this biz it’s ok to brag but don’t forget this is not your House ? your just at the Gate picking out the ones you think is worthy like they control you !”

DEAR BLACKHOLLWOOD Since the beggining of time we have never had the power in this business like we do now as a race but we started off as slaves in this country so I get confused when white fans and executives start to like black artist and think that this is a way to compare themselves to another black man or woman that is not in the same position or class . you now have become a Gate keepers that’s what black Hollywood has become if you a black film maker producer or a black man that make them money you are giving the opportunity to stand at the gate and say who can come in and who can’t 90 percent of the black entertainments got in the business through another black person i know I did and you did 2 ! You started off as work for hire let’s not forget Gate keeper so don’t start getting cute about your money and accomplishments in this biz it’s ok to brag but don’t forget this is not your House ? your just at the Gate picking out the ones you think is worthy like they control you !if the Gate keeper tell the owner of the house he don’t like you your not getting in !!!!!! Period . That’s how black Hollywood work if you make them money you can Become a Gate Keeper s/o to to all those who believe in the have nots and let us in !!

Epps then posted another picture which was aimed directly at Kevin Hart depicting him as an Uncle Tom. Basically saying that Kevin Hart believes that since white people love him, everyone should like him. Even going as far as saying, “KATT AND MIKE YALL NOT GOOD ENOUGH SORRY GO BACK IN THE FIELD!!”
Kevin Hart has yet to respond to Mike Epps.
This isn’t the first time the two got into it on social media. Just a few months ago, Kevin Hart claimed that Mike Epps was jealous of his success.
Is Kevin right or does Mike have a point? Let us know in the comments below.
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
