Maryland-National Capital Park Police are looking for Flyer-Snatching Frank after he was caught on camera taking signs honoring George Floyd.

The biker angrily walked towards a child at the Capital Crescent Trail, snatching an object from her hand. In the video he grabs a hold of her wrist and forcible takes the object from her. Then he takes his bike and tries to hit the person recording with it.

Even as bystanders yell at the man to leave them alone their cries have fallen on deaf ears. Now the police are getting involved.

There were rumors on social media that the man was a former MCPD employee but the department came out and said that is not true.

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.)

We here at King Of Reads want to wish Frank Ocean and his family well in this time of grieving. So much is happening in this world, we only hope they can find a moment of peace in the near future.

Andrew Gillum Posts Video Update, Talks About Rehab & Addiction, No Mention of Swirling up with Sex Worker

Published

Drugs and a White male sex worker were the elements of big stories in a pre-Rona, pre-uprising world. Now, most of us are just shocked that Andrew Gillum’s scandal was such a short time ago. In March, the former Tallahassee mayor and gubernatorial candidate was found in a hotel room with a sex worker named Travis Dyson after he’d called the police about a “cardiac” event. Dyson was passed out and they were both taken to the hospital for treatment. Soon after, Andrew announced that he would be going a rehabilitation center. Today he spoke out about that:

So, this is all fine and dandy, but he doesn’t really address Dyson as a figure in all of this, and that’s disappointing, because he seems to blame the entire incident on his having lost the race for governor. That… doesn’t tell us why the sex worker he was with was male. Drugs? Understood. He lost a lot and he lost it publicly. But the fact that he doesn’t address the rest kind of implies that he views this possible homoerotic swirl moment as a byproduct of his “shame”.

Nevertheless, he’s addressed it. Whatever good that does.

Netflix Loses motion to dismiss Mo’Nique’s Discrimination Lawsuit

Published

Netflix tried it. Twice. Their lawyers have attempted to get Mo’Nique’s racial and gender discrimination case thrown out yet again and the judge in the case has ordered that it proceed, according to USA Today.

In 2018, Mo’Nique took to social media to call for the boycotting of Netflix. She claimed that she was offered nothing more than $500,000 for an exclusive deal with the media company. It wasn’t long before people began comparing her deal with that of acts like Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer who were given vastly higher dollar amounts. Soon thereafter, Wanda Sykes made it clear that she, too, had been similarly low-balled, and took her deal elsewhere. That’s four acts I’ve listed, and only the two Black women are the ones who are left wanting.

Nevertheless, Mo’Nique persisted, even after having an ostensibly bad experience on Steve Harvey’s show, which resulted in debate over Steve Harvey’s complacency in the system which was oppressing her, as well as the roles played by Oprah Winfrey, Lee Daniels, and Tyler Perry. Though nothing has been substantiated, Mo’Nique has become emblematic of the troubles Black women face in Hollywood. This case going forward is one small victory, but it’s a promising one.
