Donald Glover Settles With Glassnote Records Over Royalties Issue

Childish Gambino closes out Lovebox 2018

Source: WENN.com / WENN

Donald Glover and his former label Glassnote Records were embroiled in a legal tussle over unpaid royalties regarding music streaming. The artist also known as Childish Gambino and the label have settled their legal differences, ending a battle that began early last year.


Variety
reports:

Glover, under his stage name Childish Gambino, release three albums on the label from 2011 to 2017, including the Grammy-winning “Awaken, My Love!” In July, Glassnote went to court, alleging that Glover was trying to claim 100% of streaming royalties from SoundExchange. SoundExchange pays for so-called “non-interactive digital performance royalties” — monies paid by such streaming services as Pandora, Spotify, SiriusXM and other webcasters which are considered digital radio.

Glassnote contended it was owed 50%, and that Glover and featured artists and producers were due the remaining half. Glover filed a counterclaim in September, alleging that Glassnote had underpaid various royalties and charged inappropriate expenses.

In a stipulation filed on Friday in the Southern District of New York, both sides agree to drop their suits. Both sides agreed to pay their own attorneys’ fees, but other terms were not disclosed.

The outlet adds that Glassnote Records says it paid Glover $ 8 million over the duration of his contract with another $ 2 million coming to him.

Hell Holes: What Lurks Below

Donald Firesmith

Genre: Fantasy

Publish Date: January 16, 2016

Publisher: Donald Firesmith

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.


It’s August in Alaska, and geology professor Jack Oswald prepares for the new school year. But when hundreds of huge holes mysteriously appear overnight in the frozen tundra north of the Arctic Circle, Jack receives an unexpected phone call. An oil company exec hires Jack to investigate, and he picks his climatologist wife and two of their graduate students as his team. Uncharacteristically, Jack also lets Aileen O’Shannon, a bewitchingly beautiful young photojournalist, talk him into coming along as their photographer. When they arrive in the remote oil town of Deadhorse, the exec and a biologist to protect them from wild animals complete the team. Their task: to assess the risk of more holes opening under the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the wells and pipelines that feed it. But they discover a far worse danger lurks below. When it emerges, it threatens to shatter Jack’s unshakable faith in science. And destroy us all… Praise for Hell Holes “I couldn’t put this book down! I started it just after breakfast and finished it around eleven that same night! I loved the way Mr. Firesmith combined science and a bit of paranormal to tell his story. James Rollins watch out!” Lori Beasley Bradley, author of The Legend of the Swamp Witch and The Ruby Queen: Book 1 of The Soiled Dove Sagas “I really really loved it. It flowed so well, I was never bored. Overall a fast and exciting read that I would recommend to all fantasy and sci-fi readers.” Aoife Marie Sheridan, author of The Eden Forest and Hunters “Amazing story!

I like any story that I can envision being a movie or TV show. Aileen O’Shannon is an interesting character, who has a very intriguing past that I hope to learn more about in the next installment. I recommend this book to anyone.” Michelle E. Lowe, author of Legacy, Legacy: The Reunion, and The Warning “What a great read!!!” G. M. Sherwin, author of Immortalis and The Lazarus Gene “Your book is excellent. As for the ending, … it leaves the reader wanting/needing more. I’d absolutely love to read more…” Patty Beaty, coauthor of Sunshine in the South “I enjoyed my time in Firesmith’s world. I did not want to leave. I really got a kick out of it, and would happily come back for more. Recommended.” MJ Kobernus, author of The Guardian: Blood in the Sand and The Guardian: Blood in the Snow “This book rocks.” Barton Paul Levenson, author of The Celebate Succubus and Dark Gods of Alter Telluria “A quick, enjoyable read. Full of action and fraught with danger” Dave Robertson, author of Strange Hunting, Strange Hunting II, and The Ultimate Guide to Zombies “The book is an easy and quick read and an action-filled one that you’ll imagine as a TV series or a movie with no difficulty.” Olga Núñez Miret, author of Escaping Psychiatry “That was amazing!

Of Course ‘SNL’ Clowned Kanye West & Donald Trump’s Oval Office Shenanigans [Video]

Kanye & Trump SNL parody

Source: NBC screen cap / NBC

Kanye West embarrassed himself while visiting the Oval Office and performing a minstrel show on Thursday (Oct. 11). So it was a given that Saturday Night Live would recreate their bizarre at best lovefest. 

With Alec Baldwin once again playing Donald Trump and Chris Redd portraying Kanye West, the jokes were flying.

The conclusion, Yeezy is the Black version of Cheeto. “Oh my God, he’s Black me,” said SNL Trump (in his inner voice) after witnessing a man with an ego and narcissism to match.

All things considered, where is the lie?

Worth noting is that Baldwin also included a nod to his headass notion that Black people love him because of Trump portrayal.

Also, props to the SNL writer who include the “scoopity dee whoop” Yeezy lyrics slander (see: “Lift Yourself”).

Fight Breaks Out Over Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star [Video]

The POTUS continues to bring the worst out of this country. His famed distinction on Tinseltown’s most iconic street was the cause of a vicious brawl.

Last night  (Juluy 260) more protesters took to the Hollywood Walk of Fame with Donald Trump’s star as the meeting point. Supporters of the president were there as well and that’s when things went left. Sunken place singer-songwriter Joy Villa, who was wearing a MAGA hat and terrible American flag printed pants, sang the national anthem along with a true to life Trump cutout.

The two opposing sides came face to face as they argued over the reality star turned politician. Then a “F*** Donald Trump” chant started and it was only a matter of time before the back and forth insults turned physical.

At first shoving and pushing ensued then fists started flying. In footage captured live on the scene, several men tussle up and down the strip. For the most part it seems no one was severely injured although one man did catch a brutal kick to the head while he was on the floor.

Earlier this week Donnie’s Hollywood star was defaced by an anti-Trump protester swinging a pick axe. A Los Angeles man by the name of Austin Clay claimed responsibility for the act and has since been arrested for vandalism.

You can view the video of melee below.

Donald Glover Sued By Own Record Label Over Royalties

69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press Room

Source: Jason LaVeris / Getty

This is America? Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is getting sued by his own record label over streaming royalties.

Reports TMZ:

Glassnote Entertainment Group has filed a lawsuit against Childish Gambino claiming he’s aced them out of the loot he’s collected for streaming royalties.

As for those royalties … they’re a lot. The suit claims Donald has raked in more than $ 700k in streaming money and hasn’t anted up a cent to Glassnote.

What really galls Glassnote is its claim that it has paid Donald nearly $ 8 MILLION and expects to pay him another $ 2 mil in royalties in the next 3 months. The label also claims Donald made a $ 1.5 million demand from them to resolve streaming royalty disputes.

Worth noting, Glover’s latest hit, “This Is America,” is not on Glassnote.

Everywhere, artists who get jerked by their own record labels are laughing their ass off.

Donald Trump Thanks Kanye West For Doubling Black Male Support

Kanye West MAGA

Source: Twitter/@kanyewest / Twitter/@kanyewest

See, this is why we got so mad at Kanye West co-signing anything remotely positive about Donald Trump. The Cheeto Charlatan made sure to thank Ye for an alleged 22% boost in African-American male support

Reports TMZ:

Donald Trump just shouted out Kanye West during his speech at the NRA Convention … for giving him a boost in the polls with black people.

The Prez thanked Kanye in front of the huge audience in Dallas, telling them the rapper must have some power because he doubled his support from African-Americans … according to a new poll.

Trump’s citing a recent Reuters poll that says 22 percent of black males approve of the job he’s doing as President — doubling his last approval rating of 11 percent. It’s unclear from the poll how black females feel.

As we stated, the polls “findings” don’t reflect that of woke African-American men, despite what the Black men ain’t sh*t delegation may tell you.

Donald Glover Stayed In Creepy Teddy Perkins Getup During ‘Atlanta’ Filming

Atlanta FX Teddy Perkins

Source: FX / FX

In a season already being hailed as a genre-shifting moment in television, FX’s Atlanta: Robbin Season upped the ante in its last episode which starred the creepy Teddy Perkins. With most fans realizing Donald Glover played the character, it has come out that he remained in the whiteface getup during the entire filming of the episode and baffling his castmates.

Vulture reports:

Actor Derrick Haywood, who played Benny Hope in the episode, confirmed the news to Vulture. “Initially, I had no idea that Teddy Perkins was actually played by Donald Glover,” he says. Not only did Glover play Teddy, he transformed into Teddy on set, staying in character as the shady figure – pasty makeup, wig, high-pitched voice and all – between scenes. “The director [Hiro Murai] called ‘Teddy’ over [on set] and said, ‘Let’s see what Teddy thinks.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, who is this Teddy guy and why is his opinion so important?’ When I say this guy was in character the whole time, it was just amazing the commitment he brought. We were calling him Teddy, he acted as Teddy – there was no Donald on set whatsoever.”

Glover is crazy for this one, as the Hip-Hop kids say. Did you check out Atlanta: Robbin Season‘s latest episode? Catch our recap here.

Donald Glover Says Chevy Chase Made Racist Cracks On ‘Community’ Set

69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press Room

Source: Jason LaVeris / Getty

It would be impossible to hate on the creative genius of Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino at this point but during an early point in his career, he caught some hate from a comedic figure some consider a legend of the field. In a new profile from The New Yorker, it came out that Glover’s Community co-star Chevy Chase made racist quips among other standout moments in the piece.

From the New Yorker:

Chevy Chase, one of Glover’s co-stars, often tried to disrupt his scenes and made racial cracks between takes. (“People think you’re funnier because you’re black.”) [Community creator Dan] Harmon said, “Chevy was the first to realize how immensely gifted Donald was, and the way he expressed his jealousy was to try to throw Donald off. I remember apologizing to Donald after a particularly rough night of Chevy’s non-P.C. verbiage, and Donald said, ‘I don’t even worry about it.’ ” Glover told me, “I just saw Chevy as fighting time—a true artist has to be O.K. with his reign being over. I can’t help him if he’s thrashing in the water. But I know there’s a human in there somewhere—he’s almost too human.” (Chase said, “I am saddened to hear that Donald perceived me in that light.”) Glover quit in the fifth season, too bored to do it anymore.

Chunky President: President Donald Trump’s Weight Sparks “Girther” Trend

President Donald Trump boasted about his physical and mental condition at various points during his presidential campaign and in recent times. After White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson listed the former business mogul at 6’3 and 239 pounds, skeptics have slammed the big reveal and sparked the term “girther” that made its rounds on social media on Tuesday (Jan. 16).

What makes this an especially rich moment is that Trump has famously shamed people for their weight while not exactly looking quite like the Adonis-like figure he imagines himself to be. Playing on Trump’s zany “birther” moment in attempting to get President Barack Obama to prove his U.S. citizenship, the “girther” trend picked up quite a bit of steam on Twitter.

All Haitians Have AIDS, Per Donald Trump

Donald Trump went full(er) racist. During an immigration meeting, the illegitimate POTUS allegedly said all Haitian have AIDS and that he thinks most Nigerians still kick it in huts. 

Seriously.

The New York Times reports that back in June, Trump was in the Oval Office discussing visas and was peeved so many foreigners were being let into the country after he promised to put a stop to it. Not surprisingly, Cheeto’s vitriol was aimed at the brown immigrants

“Haiti had sent 15,000 people. They “all have AIDS,” he grumbled, according to one person who attended the meeting and another person who was briefed about it by a different person who was there.

Forty thousand had come from Nigeria, Mr. Trump added. Once they had seen the United States, they would never “go back to their huts” in Africa, recalled the two officials, who asked for anonymity to discuss a sensitive conversation in the Oval Office.”

The White House has denied the report. Of course, the White House has denied every racist, sexist and idiotic remark from the President, so there’s that.

Donald Trump Is The Real Son Of A B*tch [EDITORIAL]

Donald Trump’s words at an Alabama rally Friday night (Sept. 22) for Sen. Luther Strange was a chance for the former business mogul to attack not only Black athletes but anyone who dares to stand against inequality and oppression. In a classic abuse of power, the President of the United States effectively declared war on the nation’s citizens and their freedom to peacefully demonstrate or criticize its leaders, even as they prove themselves to have the decency of a pile of dust.

“Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now. – President Donald Trump”

While most world leaders use public airtime to address important issues or to rally a positive cause, Trump opened his speech in Alabama Friday by blasting peacefully protesting NFL players then adding false motives to their gesture.

Time and again, Colin Kaepernick and others have explained that the protest is aimed at calling attention to police brutality, the lack of equal rights, and injustices many people of color face in this nation. For Trump and others to frame the protests as a dig at patriotism and the military helps stoke the very fires of the woefully ignorant flock that managed to get him elected. It’s cowardly. It’s low. It cheapens the what being president should stand for.

Instead of speaking in loving support of those affected by the storms in Puerto Rico or other pertinent matters, Twitter Fingers Trump used this Saturday morning to snatch away an invite to the White House to the Golden State Warriors that apparently never existed. Reacting to Warriors All-Star Stephen Curry’s Friday comments that he’d vote “no” if Trump and his cronies actually had the stones to invite them, the tweet was yet another childish response from the petulant Commander-in-Chief.

Trump using his powerful platform to hurl threats, insults, and whip his base into a frenzy of misguided negativity does nothing but prove the fact why athletes and entertainers have turned to speaking out, as ESPN anchor Jemele Hill did recently. The criticism Trump has received and the protests around the country aren’t happening for unsubstantiated reasons. America has a race problem, and instead of calling out so-called sons of b*tches for made-up reasons, perhaps Trump needs to take a look in the mirror to realize who the real son of a b*tch is.

Kevin Durant Says He Doesn’t Respect Donald Trump, Won’t Visit White House

Kevin Durant has emerged from his insular shell of late, using Twitter in a humorous fashion and showing more of his personality after winning that elusive chip with the Golden State Warriors this year. The custom of championship teams getting invited to the White House is usually a high honor, but the Prince George’s County superstar says his lack of respect for President Donald Trump would keep him away.

ESPN writes:

Kevin Durant says he will not visit President Donald Trump at the White House if the NBA champion Golden State Warriors are invited.

“Nah, I won’t do that,” said Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.”

Durant spoke to ESPN on Thursday as his hometown of Seat Pleasant celebrated Kevin Durant Day for all of his achievements on and off the court.

The Warriors visit the nation’s capital Feb. 28 to take on the Washington Wizards. The White House has not extended a formal invitation to the Warriors.

Durant was back in his hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland Thursday to celebrate “Kevin Durant Day” and added in comments to the outlet that he believes his Warriors teammates would back him on his plan to opt out from the visit should the invitation come.

President Donald Trump Finally Calls Out Charlottesville White Nationalists By Name

In the wake of the hateful protest in Charlottesville that turned bloody and left one woman dead, President Trump has finally placed blame by name.

For a politician who is so quick to specifically address all who oppose him, the POTUS was noticeably ambiguous when he commented on the violence. ‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.”

After much scrutiny from the left, right and everyone with a drop of common sense, Trump took a firmer position saying “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the K.K.K., neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

For Merck’s chief executive, Kenneth C. Frazier, it was too little too late. The noted pharmaceutical CEO resigned from the president’s American Manufacturing Council on Monday citing that the death of 32-year old Heather Heyer was not committed by “many sides“.

“America’s leaders must honor our fundamental views by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal,” he said via a tweet posted from Merck’s official Twitter Account.

Naturally, the president took to Twitter to address Frazier withdrawing from the committee stating “Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!”.

This is not the first time Donald’s stance or lack thereof has left his appointed business leaders to flee. So far Elon Musk of Tesla, Bob Iger of Disney and Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs have all exited presidential councils.

Also, we are curious to know why no one has mentioned that Trump Winery, the largest vineyard in Virginia, is also located in Charlottesville?

Awakening

Fun, Sci-Fi, Cyberpunk, Alien Contact

Donald Swan

Genre: Science Fiction

Publish Date: August 25, 2013

Publisher: Bad Rabbit Publications

Seller: Cassandra Lebedz


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Highly recommend this book for lovers of sci-fi!!! I found "The Hyperspace Project" to be an immensely enjoyable read. I kept picturing Harrison Ford, but with the Indiana Jones personality, but in a Blade Runner world as Nick Bannon. The pacing was great, Swan did an awesome job giving just enough description of the new technology and alien races without dragging the story into a grinding halt. The story had a feel good sense that I got from watching "Guardians of the Galaxy" – where you get to know the characters to the point where you actually want to meet them and have a few drinks at a dive bar to hear more stories. The dialogue and writing were top notch – and it was clear that this story was thought out before Swan committed it to paper. With all of the rehashes (really – can we do a Spiderman reboot just one more time please…..) it is nice to meet some new characters in a new adventure – and it doesn't have to end here, since Swan already has book two on the shelves. Highly recommend this book for lovers of sci fi!!!" – Nathan Merceron ★★★★★ "5 star sci-fi adventure – this book is FUN. The start of a new series, Book 1 : Awakenings does not disappoint. It has all the elements I desire in a good space adventure story – a reluctant hero fumbling his/her way through new alien space, interesting and unique aliens, exciting twists and turns, a good overall plot and a whole lot of fun. I am right on board the Hyperspace wagon, eagerly awaiting book 2, which means book 1 gets the OMGMOAR 5 star award from Tracing The Stars." -TracingTheStars.com   ★★★★★ "A lost Queen. An ancient prophecy. Worlds caught in an interstellar war between two malevolent alien races. Hyperspace, Nanites, Biomechanoids with a mysterious past. The Hyperspace Project is non-stop action and lots of fun." -John S. ★★★★★ "An action-packed, fun and intelligent adventure into the unknown." – YourBookAuthors.com ★★★★★"I really enjoyed this book. There is a lot of action, but it's well balanced. If you like Star Trek or shows like Stargate, then I think you'll like this book. Fun characters and a story that flows well. Some good futuristic science too. (Nanites, hyperspace, gadgets etc.) I only wish that the second book was already available. There is also an interesting extra chapter that can be unlocked with clues from the book. That added an extra bit of fun to it as well." -Sara, BestIndieBooks.com ————————————————————— Description: Enemy activity had fallen into an eerie calm, but everyone felt the coming storm—a terrible storm, poised to unleash its fury upon the galaxy. It seemed as though the entire universe was holding its breath. Waiting. Whether waiting for the salvation of mankind or its demise was yet unclear. He set out to prove a theory. Now he’s racing to save the galaxy from his mistake. Along with his newly found, rag-tag band of alien friends, Nick Bannon battles to keep his devastating technology out of the hands of the biomechanoid race known as the Mok’tu. Nick is flung to a distant world when his hyperspace experiment goes awry. Technology can always be used for good or evil and now his peaceful experiment could become a horrific weapon of a malicious alien race. Every species in the galaxy is in danger of total annihilation and it may take one man’s greatest sacrifice to stop it.

Why Donald Trump will Ruin the World

I promised myself that I wasn’t going to write about Donald Trump today. Then I saw this video clip in which a bearded fellow claims to know Trump’s morning routine. According to the bearded guy, an assistant brings a stack of Trump-related newspaper clips to Trump every morning. Trump glances at them, but rarely reads them, somewhere at around 6 AM. The headline for the video clip touts that it “tells you everything you need to know about Donald Trump.”

Apparently the only thing you need to know is that he’s a narcissist who loves attention. That’s one of the main media narratives about Trump, so watch their cherry-picked anecdotes support that story.

I watched the video clip about Trump’s morning routine around 6 AM, right after I looked at my blog comments, Google Alerts, new book reviews, and Twitter, to see what people said about me since the last time I checked. That’s my morning routine too. In the old days, I used a clipping service. All of this is normal for people in the media.

Am I a narcissist like Trump? Totally. But that would be missing the larger context. When your job is brand management – something Trump and I have in common – you have to watch how your brand is doing. And if something bad happened recently, you need to jump on it. That’s the job.

You might also wonder why Trump needs physical newspaper clippings in the digital age. I can answer that question too. Based on my media experience, I think there is a 75% chance the story is stale. He probably uses digital sources, especially Twitter, these days.

And if we are being realistic, Trump’s morning habit probably comes from his assistant, not from Trump. Trump barely glances at them. Then he does fifty other things in the morning. So I don’t think this one stale anecdote about something that brand managers routinely do is all we need to know about the man.

But let’s talk about the frightened citizens who genuinely believe Donald Trump could be a disaster as president, with his narcissism, xenophobia, bullying, huge ego, and selfish capitalist greed. That’s a scary list. But today we will view this list with the Master Persuader filter. The Master Persuader Hypothesis says that a persuader of Trump’s caliber will (always) send a large chunk of the population into a form of temporary irrationality called cognitive dissonance. I have predicted that you will see more of it, and that you can identify it by the tells.

So today I will describe some of the fears I hear about a potential Trump presidency. I will try to be objective.

Fear 1: Trump is a bully with a big mouth and no diplomatic nuance. He might offend a world leader and trigger a war. In unrelated news, we continue to be puzzled at how Trump has been a terrible person for several decades and yet we hear only glowing reports from the people who know him best, including his family, business associates, and friends. Even his ex-wife, Ivana, is pro-Trump. 

And Trump often reminds us that he was against the Iraq war. As a general rule, people who own tall buildings don’t like to start wars with people who blow up real estate for a living. If Trump is looking out for Trump assets, he isn’t going to be starting wars.

Fear 2: Trump is only in it for personal financial gain. Under this hypothesis, Trump will make decisions that help himself and his billionaire friends. Apparently he will be doing this while pursuing his plan to tax the rich at higher levels to keep social programs intact.

Fear 3: Trump’s motivations are narcissism and ego, so he is not in it for the right reasons. This is in stark contrast to the other candidates who are running for the highest office in the land while apparently believing they are unqualified. 

Fear 4: Trump only cares about Trump. He will make decisions that favor his company and his ego above the interests of the people. Under this way of thinking, the most famous brand manager alive does not realize that doing a shitty job as president is bad for the Trump brand. No one needs to stay at a Trump hotel and no one needs to golf at a Trump golf course. Trump’s business is the same as the business of the United States. He only does well in business if he does great as president. 

Fear 5: [Omitted by error.]

Fear 6: Trump is all hype. If he had invested his inherited fortune in an index fund and never worked a day in his life he would be worth more than he is now. But instead, Trump entered a variety of businesses, succeeded at many, learned from his mistakes, and employed tens of thousands of people while developing one of the most famous brands on earth. And now he will probably be president. Was that the wrong play?

Fear 7: Trump is a closet racist. We can tell by the way he talks about immigrants. For example, Trump wants more immigrants with technical skills to become citizens of the United States, and he wants fewer of the criminal types.

We also know Trump is a racist because of his proposal to ship eleven million illegal immigrants back home. Granted, Trump wrote a book describing how he always makes an aggressive first offer, every time, without exception, yet we are sure he didn’t mean it this time.

Here I remind you that I am not smart enough to know who would be a good president. Most of the candidates look qualified to me. My point today is to get a list going of the reasons people object to a Trump candidacy and see if those reasons survive light. If not, we have mass cognitive dissonance. If the reasons hold up, according to most of you, that means I’m the one with cognitive dissonance. I can never rule that out.

Judges, what do you think?

I wrote a book about the advantage of systems over goals. Trump is a systems thinker. It seems to be working.

Speaking of systems, Wally has a good one.

El Chapo Puts $100M Bounty On Donald Trump’s Wig Piece

Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán is still somewhere enjoying life, and probably a cerveza and taking in a soccer game. He’s also managed to find time to reportedly put a $ 100M bounty on the head of Donald Trump. 

Reports Latina:

El Chapo escaped from maximum security prison in Mexico earlier this year via ventilated, lit tunnel that exited in a house construction site nearly a mile away. The Mexican drug lord has evaded capture, and now appears to be doing some investigative work of his own.

According to TeleSurTV, El Chapo has increased the bounty on Trump’s head to a steep $ 100 million. An unnamed told the source that the drug lord was “mad” about Trump’s inflammatory statements about Mexicans.

“He wants Donald Trump dead,” the unnamed source added. “And he will pay any amount of money to have Donald Trump’s head.”

The threats have yet to be confirmed, although a Trump employee told Gossip Cop that the threat
“is no joke.”

With that in mind, we wish El Chapo nothing but the best and figure he’ll turn himself in when he feels ready to.

Also, to put things in perspective, Mexico has offered $ 3.8M for El Chapo’s capture.

Donald Trump “Fired From NBC After Racist Mexican Remarks

The Donald Trump’s decision to generalize Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and criminals has led NBC to leave him and his Miss America pageants out on the curb.

NBC announced today, June 29, that they would no longer broadcast the The Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants on their network.

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” they said in a statement obtained by Deadline. “To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC .In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in Celebrity Apprentice on NBC.”

Following his laughable presidential bid, Trump spoke out his ass regarding the country’s North American counterparts, focusing on the extreme negative of a select few.


“When do we beat Mexico at the border?,” he cried. “They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. … When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They are bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Of course there was backlash but Trump promises not to take this lying down. Following the announcement that his services over at NBC were no longer desired, he released a statement revealing his intention to sue the company.

“If NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, then their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA will be determined in court,” it read.

“With my statements on immigration, which happen to be correct, [NBC is] going to take a different stance – that’s okay,” he said. “As far as ending the relationship, I have to do that, because my view on immigration is much different than the people at NBC. You have to stop illegal immigration. I know NBC might disagree with me, but you cannot have illegal immigration.”
