Short Sellers Coming For Elon Musk’s Company On Twitter With $TslaQ Hashtag In Hopes To Cash In

$  TslaQ Hashtag

Source: Spencer Platt / Getty

Elon Musk should be riding a wave of momentum right now. Just recently his company Tesla announced its new crossover SUV, the Model Y and unveiled a leasing option for the model 3. But there is a growing group consisted of crowd-sourced short sellers on a mission to see Musk and his company fail so they can take advantage and make some money.

If you click on the $ TslaQ hashtag on Twitter, you will see a concerted effort from short sellers (investors who profit from stocks declining) to expose Telsa and its CEO Elon Musk in hopes to see the company’s value crash and burn. In a detailed report from the Los Angeles Times, writer Russ Witchell breaks down just how intricate this crowd-sourced effort is.

From having their own fleet of pilots called the Shorty Air Force who fly over lots exposing hundreds of cars sitting and a ground effort called the Shorty Ground Force who gather images of cars just collecting dust tell a different story than what Elon Musk’s Twitter timeline is saying.

Per The Los Angeles Times:

“Ten days left in the quarter, and they’re just sitting there,” said Machine Planet, peering down at the remote landscape outside Lathrop. Tesla bought those trailers to aid what Chief Executive Elon Musk said will be an unprecedented wave of new car deliveries in March. But to Machine Planet — that’s the name he uses on Twitter — the scene just confirms his suspicions that there are lots all around the U.S. filled with unsold Tesla cars. (He and others claim to have counted 52.)”

“If you spend any time on the Twitter hashtag $ TslaQ, you know what this means to Tesla short sellers. They believe the lots full of new Model 3s — and Models S and X vehicles, too — show Tesla has reached a cliff in demand for its vehicles. When the rest of the world finally admits the company’s days as a fast-growth story are numbered, they say, its stock price will crash, creating a bonanza for investors who, like Machine Planet, have bet big that Tesla’s shares are grossly overvalued.”

Again while they have done extensive research on the company gathering all kinds of info and photos, Musk is telling a different story about his company and business is good, and the cars are moving.

We will just have to see if Musk’s dream of owning the road, sending people to space and equipping homes with solar panels will come to fruition.

Elon Musk Vows On Twitter To Pay For Home Water Filters For Flint Residents

Flint Water Plant

It’s been four years since the bonehead decision by Michigan officials to switch the city of Flint’s water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River. The water from the lake was highly corrosive causing hazardous levels of lead to link into Flint’s water supply poisoning its residents.

The residents fought tooth and nail just recognize the problem and bring national attention to the crisis. Despite claims of the water being safe to drink may residents still don’t trust the city’s drinking water.

After being challenged on Twitter, Tesla CEO Elon Musk says he is willing to help those still suffering in Flint.

Musk fresh off being in the news for his submarine idea to help the now rescued Thai soccer team trapped in a cave promised in a Tweet: “Please consider this a commitment that I will fund fixing the water in any house in Flint that has water contamination above FDA levels. No kidding.” Michigan’s state government recently ended a program that supplied a free bottled water to residents, despite the fact, there are still residents complaining of unusable water. Musk’s help whether or not its a PR move would definitely be more than welcomed by the people of Flint.

Musk also stated in related tweets that “Most houses in Flint have safe water, but they’ve lost faith in govt test results. Some houses are still outliers,” and encouraged those who feel their water is still bad to share their test results and he “will send someone to install a water filter.” He also promised to create a specific email, flint@x.com when he has an opportunity to do so when he returns from China.

Well, we gotta tip our hat to Elon Musk, this exactly how you put your money where your mouth is. Musk joins the likes of Big SeanBruno Mars and Dave Chappelle who also used their wealth and resources to help the city during its water crisis.

5 Dead In Shooting at Annapolis Newspaper, Twitter Blames Trump & Milo Yiannopoulos

Multiple People Shot In Capital-Gazette Newspaper Building In Annapolis

Source: Alex Wroblewski / Getty

Today (June 28), a gunman killed five people in the newsroom of an Annapolis, MD newspaper. The suspect is currently in custody. 

The heinous attack was planned.

Reports the New York Times:

A man armed with a shotgun and smoke grenades stormed into the newsroom of a community newspaper chain in Maryland’s capital on Thursday afternoon, killing five journalists, injuring two others and prompting law enforcement agencies across the country to provide protection at the headquarters of media organizations.

A lone suspect, a Maryland resident in his late 30s, was taken into custody at the scene and was being questioned Thursday night, but the authorities did not immediately identify him. The authorities said they were investigating whether the suspect had sent a threat over social media to the Capital Gazette, which produces a number of local newspapers along Maryland’s shore.

“This was a targeted attack on the Capital Gazette,” said Acting Chief William Krampf of the Anne Arundel County Police Department. “This person was prepared to shoot people. His intent was to cause harm.”

Some reporters in the newsroom live tweeted the attack.

As for political troll Milo Yiannopoulos, a couple of days ago he eerily called for the shooting of journalists.

Needless to say, he’s getting ejected from the paint.

In spite of all the craziness going on in the world, you can always count on Twitter with the help of Young Thug to supply some good laughs to get you through the day.

Young Thug is no stranger to being the talk of social media thanks in large part to his choice of fashion, the eye-opening cover for his album ‘Jeffery’ or wanting us to call him “SEX.”  All of those moments generated some memorable memes but its a new photo featuring the “Super Slimey” rapper looking very serious and Lil Durk watching cautiously in the studio that has Twitter’s comedic juices flowing.

Twitter users have come up with numerous scenarios that could accurately describe what is correctly taking place in the photo. From a parent checking their concerned child’s grades, Thugger commanding the Starship Enterprise and even being the leader of the free world.

You gotta love Twitter, we are sure Thugger is getting a good laugh out of these memes featuring him. We don’t know exactly what was the outcome of these two in the studio, but we are just happy that this photo exists now. Do yourselves a favor and hit the gallery to see the rest of this comedic gold.

Pusha T Responds To Drake With Filthy “The Story Of Adidon” Diss Track, Twitter Going Nuts

Pusha T 'Daytona' Album Listening Party

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

Drake definitely got the whole Hip-Hop world talking after dropping the “Duppy” diss track aimed squarely at Pusha T and Kanye West, getting in some shots most didn’t expect. King Push rested a bit to let the holiday weekend pass and returned fire with “The Story Of Adidon” and it got really personal really fast.

Rapping over Jay-Z’s “The Story Of O.J.” and using the name of the Brooklyn mogul’s late father, Pusha wasted no time in getting into it with blistering bars.

“Drug dealin’ aside, ghostwritin’ aside’Let’s have a heart-to-heart about your pride/Even though you’re multi, I see that your soul don’t look alive/The M’s count different when Baby divides the pie, wait/Let’s examine why/Your music for the past few years been angry and full of lies/I’ll start it at the home front, “I’m On One”/Dennis Graham stay off the gram, bitch I’m on one,” Pusha starts.

Pusha went for the jugular and mentioned Drake’s father Dennis Graham and his mother, Sandi Graham, making sure to mention that his father walked out on his life just as he’s allegedly walking out or not taking care of a child he fathered with Sophie Brussaux. Even Drizzy’s producer 40 caught in a foul way.

Oh yeah, it went there.

We’re posting the song below and all of the over-the-top reactions and hot takes below and on the following pages. As Pusha T said, it’s “gonna be a surgical summer” and we doubt Drake is going to let this cook.

Pusha T Dodges Drake Diss, Salutes Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole Up Via Twitter

Pusha T 'Daytona' Album Listening Party

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

Pusha T‘s DAYTONA is still very much front of mind for many fans, despite the shot from Drake and the “Duppy” diss track. While Push addressed the track by quoting one of the bars, he’s dodging the jabs and instead quoted himself while bigging up Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole.

As heard on DAYTONA‘s “Infrared,” Pusha T opens up the verse saying, “Believe in myself and the Coles and Kendricks/Let the sock puppets play in their roles and gimmicks” as he went for self on the album’s final track. Push quoted this portion of the verse in a tweet from Kendrick Lamar and thanked him for throwing support behind his new project, which has passed most critical high marks thus far.

This proves to be rather interesting as there was some chatter than K-Dot and Drizzy had some unspoken beef and with the Compton lyricist bigging up DAYTONA, could there be more smoke on the horizon? Stay tuned.

Still waiting on that response though, King Push.

Did y’all forget Drake had it in him? Twitter is currently going honey baked ham at the Boy’s lyrical rebuttal to Pusha T with “Duppy Freestyle.” 

You know it’s real when “The Audacity,” which Drake says at the start of his tune, is trending.

And what a song it is. Drizzy served up bars coming for the necks of Yeezy and Push A Ton, but mostly for the latter. Considering what the 6 God did to Meek Mill, this should come as no surprise.

However, it must be noted that the knock on Drake was he went hard at Meek, but didn’t have that same energy for Push. Not anymore.

Also, he really submitted the invoice.

F*ckboy Bingo Has Mars vs. Venus Twitter Triggered

It doesn’t take much to get Mars vs. Venus Twitter reacting. This time, the eye of the storm when it comes to triggered feelings is a game called “F*ckboy Bingo.”

As you can probably guess, tried and true curve tactics (ignored texts, wack excuses, etc.) have been compiled into a grid that will let you determine if you are indeed, a f*ckboy.

It seems to have started with a universal f*ckboy bingo…

Then a more nuanced, Black Twitter leaning version (see: why slander the Bred Air Jordan 11’s, though?) of F*ckboy Bingo appeared.

Which of course led to F*ckgirl Bingo.

#TheRootArticles: Black Twitter Starts Hashtag War Over The Root’s Headlines

Source: Westend61 / Getty

The Root, one of the most popular spaces for Black culture on the Internet, found itself the target of a hashtag making light of its headlines. The hashtag, #TheRootArticles, is still going strong after hitting Twitter timelines over the weekend and even got a response from the outlet via one of its writers.

How the hashtag came to be is something of a mystery, but Twitter user @Craig’s_VCR was credited with making it popular, although he gave that honor to a number of other Twitter users. To sum it up, there is a contingent of Black Twitter that feels The Root is pushing an agenda that attacks straight Black men, the “hoteps,” and the generally ashy to use the terms to describe those on that squad (no shots).

The hashtag takes articles using The Root’s headline bent but twisting them to suggest the so-called agenda. In response, writer Michael Harriot slammed the chorus of critics but did so in a way to show they’re not studying their haters at all.

“This past weekend, a group of heroes united to form f*ckboy Voltron on social media and created the hashtag #TheRootArticles to fight our agenda of destroying the straight black man,” Harriot wrote.

Harriot went on to say that Black men were driving the hashtag home and while men definitely dominated the output, some Black women chimed in with their own hit backs.

We’ve collected some of the tweets below and on the following pages. Let us know what you think of this debate in the comments.

That’s not all he is happy about though, he tells his momma that he and Bambi are expecting and she is elated at the news of the arrival of a new heir to the “kingdom.”

Scrappy knows his momma and informs her she can’t tell anyone in the A about the news due to the fact both he and Bambi had suffered some severe complications in a previous pregnancy. If you genuinely believe that anyone can keep a secret on this show, then you haven’t been watching. Scrappy breaks his own rule when he tells Stevie J and Joc the news plus there is also the small notion that there television cameras present.

Momma Dee eventually also uniquely spills the beans or shall we say she forces Bambi to reveal she is pregnant to Rasheeda and Tammy. Momma Dee breaks out a bag full of onesies and the ladies thought at first she was expecting, but she shuts that notion down immediately. Bambi picks up on what Momma Dee is doing and decides to just tell the group the news and urges them to keep the information on the low.

Congratulations to Scrappy and Bambi though.

That’s Not FUBU It’s FIBI: Young Earn Getting Picked On For His Bootleg Gear Triggers #AtlantaFX Twitter

Atlanta FX FUBU episode

Source: Guy D’Alema/FX / Guy D’Alema/FX

Last week we saw the end of Al and Earn’s complicated partnership come to an end. Last night’s episode of Atlanta takes us back to the past where we see how a young Earn and his cousin Al’s relationship blossomed into what we have seen before their fissure. 

The penultimate episode aptly titled FUBU opens up with young Earn bored out of his mind shopping with his mother at Marshalls.Like any young teen who has endured shopping with their mom, he wanders off and discovers hidden treasure in the form of a yellow FUBU jersey on sale.

Earn quickly scoops up the gem and brings it to his mom and she agrees to purchase the highly coveted 90’s piece of fashion for her son.Earn of course is so excited about the new fashion acquisition he can barely sleep and is up at the crack at dawn to throw on his jersey and head to school.Once on the bus, he is immediately greeted by a compliment for his new shirt. The day is looking up for Earn, but we know something is going to go wrong for him.

Earn arrives in class just beaming with confidence but that quickly subsides when is fellow classmate Devin walks in with the same FUBU jersey. Kids are cruel and pick up on the accidental twins and inspect both jerseys because something is just completely off.Devin’s shirt puts Earn’s into question because he has a patch and more stripes. Before they officially label either Earn or Devin’s shirt fake they need Johnny to render the final verdict on the issue of the fake FUBU jersey. 

The damage has been done, and the doubt has been cast in the air. The teasing begins instantly, and young Earn’s FUBU sweater is being called FIBI despite him pleading his case that it’s real. With word quickly spreading around the school Earn is worried but one of his white friends didn’t quite seem to understand. He asks what is the big deal anyway and points out he wore the same shirt twice in the same week.

Thing’s were so bad that Erica a young girl Earn was crushing on sent two notes one asking if he likes her and the other asking if his shirt was fake because she doesn’t like “broke niggas.”

Bruh can that day get any worse for Earn? The answer is yes because the resident bootleg expert Johnny has finally arrived. With both him and Devin present Johnny who happens to be of Asian descent checks the tags on birth shirts. He determines Earn’s shirt is the fake being that it was made Bangladesh and Devin’s was made in China.

This is where young Al who is cooler than other side of the pillow as the late great Stuart Scott would say walks in looks out for his cousin like he always does. Al points out the Earn’s shirt is real because Johnny is Chinese and of course he would say that Devin’s is real because it came from China. Johnny mumbles under his voice that he’s Filipino though but Al has already made the case and Earn makes out school alive.

The next day we learn the extent of the damage over the fake FUBU fiasco. The principle comes to class to announce that Devin committed suicide. His parents were going through a divorce and plus the bullying over his “fake” jersey pushed him over the edge. The episode quickly became a reminder just how dangerous bullying can be when it comes to young children and also gave viewers a severe case PTSD as they remembered their times back in middle school.

Hit the flip for more reactions from last night’s episode of Atlanta.

The romance, if you want to call it that, between Blac Chyna and her teenaged struggle rapper boo piece YBN Almighty Jay has moved to a new level if rumors are true. The chatter on social media is that Chyna is expecting baby number three and the reactions are as expected on Twitter.

Chyna’s name began trending on Twitter late Monday afternoon after news reports from tabloid site Media Take Out that she was sporting a baby bump and that she even rubbed her tummy for cameras. Taking a look at the photos from the weekend report, it does appear that Chyna is carrying a little bundle of joy.

On Twitter, the comments have been raging and we’ve collected some of the chatter which can be seen below and on the following pages. While no person can never be fully prepared for fatherhood, YBN Almighty Jay can’t even legally buy a fifth of scotch yet, which he’s probably going to need if there is indeed babies on the horizon.

#MeekFree: Twitter Rejoices After Meek Mill Is Released On Bail

Free Meek Mill Rally

Source: @JustInMyView / R1 Digital

Meek Mill is finally home, and the Internets is lit with joy after his long bid to get free has been heavily documented in this space. However, the victory is bittersweet because while the Philadelphia rap star is free on bail pending an upcoming court hearing, the judge rumored to have a vendetta against him still presides over the case.

TMZ reports:

The Supreme Court of PA made the decision, overruling Judge Genece Brinkley. Judge Brinkley was severely criticized for what some say was a grudge against Meek and keeping him in prison, despite prosecutors asking that his conviction be overturned because of a dirty cop.

Judge Brinkley denied Meek bail last week after prosecutors asked her to toss the conviction, and instead she set a hearing for 60 days later. Many found that outrageous, and that apparently includes justices of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

The justices released Meek with no bail, pending a hearing in about 60 days to possibly dismiss the conviction. One remarkable thing, which is a clear diss to Judge Brinkley … the justices refused to boot Judge Brinkley from the case, but said she “may opt to remove herself from presiding over this matter.”

Twitter Fries Kanye West For Supporting Conservative Pundit Candace Owens

Kanye West‘s return to Twitter was celebrated by fans who missed his presence online, but now some of those same supporters are probably hoping he’ll go away again. After tweeting out Saturday a supportive message for conservative pundit Candace Owens,  Black Twitter has been raging to the point Owens’ name began trending.

“I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” West tweeted early Saturday morning (April 21), getting a big response from the right-wing MAGA crew who saw this as an epic cosign of their ideals. But that was soon met with backlash as some in the Black Twitter space have highlighted that Owens has used her platform to express anti-Black and homophobic views. Owens herself responded to Yeezy’s tweet, stating that she wants him to “wake up the Black community.”

We’ve collected some of the responses, although it’s pretty clear this is one of those classic Kanye moments where he says his first thought and leaves it open to interpretation. Let us know what you thought of the tweet in our comments section if time permits.

This makes all those philosophical tweets worth it. Today (April 19) via Twitter, Kanye West announced the release dates of albums from himself, Pusha T and a joint project with Kid Cudi. 

Yeezy’s album is apparently just seven songs, for now, and will be out June 1.

Then Yeezy announced that just a week later him and Cudi are dropping a joint album called Kids See Ghost. Besides being the name of the album, that’s the name of their group.

Also, Teyana Taylor is dropping an album on June 22.

And last but not least (as far tweet chronology not dates), G.O.O.D. Music President Pusha T will be blessing the massed with a new album on May 25.

Needless to say, rap Twitter is beside itself. Charlamagne Tha God got a listen to the album, but he isn’t giving up much intel.

Earlier this week, Kanye West reappeared on Twitter to the surprise of his fans. The Chicago native was welcomed back with open arms but his wife and pals provided some comedic relief that was pretty epic.

While Yeezy shaded Nike briefly the majority of his tweets have been rather introspective.

He also reinforced his less is more motto.

This opened the door for his better half to reply with a classic comeback.

F.O.W. (Friend of Wests) Chrissy Teigen also joined in offering Kim an air mattress at her house.

The reality star kept the roast going with some more questions about what exactly Kanye was referring to.

Before things got out of hand and the trolls twisted the story Kim made it clear it was all jokes. “For anyone who has absolutely no humor in their soul please know my tweets are a joke and I will die laughing if I see blogs and media really think I am being serious. So don’t even try it” she explained.

Still no word if Kimmy had the YEEZYMafia account shut down, though.

As for Yeezy, he still philosophizing.

Singer Sabrina Claudio Was Very Racist On Old Twitter Profile, Gets Dragged [Photos]

Day N Night

Nothing is ever erased on the internet. Sabrina Claudio learned this the hard way when some of her old tweets came back to bite her.

Back in the day the “Unravel Me” singer reportedly used a Twitter account @ODamnYourUgly where she made some very distasteful commentary about Black and Hispanic women including ““it must suck to be a black girl with no booty.” She also used the dreaded N-word quite frequently.

Claudio deleted the inflammatory posts but still got cooked online for her recklessness.

After staying silent she finally issued an apology earlier today. “I am deeply sorry for the insensitive words I’ve used,” she wrote on Twitter. “Some of the things you are seeing are true while others aren’t.”

While she did not elaborate on which comments were correct it should be noted that the account was still in use up to 2017. Considering that Claudio is half Cuban and half Puerto Rican she should have known better.

Share your dream & post your own #DreamStillLives video. Spread love…spread hope,” read his message, accompanied by a video.

A lot of folks were rooting for the union of rapper Big Sean and singer Jhene Aiko, but it looks like the Detroit artist might have been slipping the D to a woman 10 years his senior. According to an exclusive report from The Jasmine Brand, Sean was spotted looking a little too friendly with former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and word got back to his lady.

The Jasmine Brand writes that Sean, 29, and Scherzinger, 39, were seated next to each other at an Oscars Awards after-party in a VIP section. Although the venue didn’t allow phones, someone close to Aiko let her know that her man was cutting up at the jam. Neither couple has confirmed nor denied the chatter, but that hasn’t stopped Twitter from going completely ape-sh*t over the rumors.

Sean and Aiko began dating in 2016 and the singer famously has the rapper’s face tatted on her arm. Looks like that might have been a regrettable move at the moment. Stayed tuned as this story is sure to develop.

For now, take in some of the reactions from Twitter to the alleged bad news.

Fake News Spreads On Twitter Faster Than The Truth, Per Study

Twitter suspends thousands of accounts for pro-terrorism and violence contents

Source: Anadolu Agency / Getty

Fake News owns Twitter, well according to a new study that is the case. Three researchers at MIT published a story in Science that points out that “fake news” travels faster, further and deeper and more broadly and it’s not bots doing the work but humans.

That’s pretty alarming when you seriously think about it.

How did they come to this conclusion?  Here is their breakdown of the study and how they came to their results:

“We investigated the differential diffusion of all of the verified true and false news stories distributed on Twitter from 2006 to 2017. The data comprise ~126,000 stories tweeted by ~3 million people more than 4.5 million times. We classified news as true or false using information from six independent fact-checking organizations that exhibited 95 to 98% agreement on the classifications. Falsehood diffused significantly farther, faster, deeper, and more broadly than the truth in all categories of information, and the effects were more pronounced for false political news than for false news about terrorism, natural disasters, science, urban legends, or financial information. We found that false news was more novel than true news, which suggests that people were more likely to share novel information. Whereas false stories inspired fear, disgust, and surprise in replies, true stories inspired anticipation, sadness, joy, and trust. Contrary to conventional wisdom, robots accelerated the spread of true and false news at the same rate, implying that false news spreads more than the truth because humans, not robots, are more likely to spread it.”

With news and information readily at your fingertips, you would think to be able to fact check or source checking these stories would be the norm. “Fake news” and propaganda has been linked to influencing our election but it’s very troubling to learn that humans are to blame instead of bots. Gotta be careful what you’re sharing on Twitter or any other social media platform for that matter. Head over to Science to read the full study.

Twitter Launches New Bookmark Feature With The Help Of User Input

Currency and Social Media

Source: NurPhoto / Getty

Twitter finally introduced a new feature that is honestly worth using on a regular basis. If you haven’t noticed there is a new share tab located bottom right corner underneath tweets houses the new Bookmark feature that allows users to revisit the tweets later.

Still can’t edit published tweets, though.

We still appreciate this latest update, and the best part about it is you no longer have to essentially like the tweet anymore which is announced to your entire timeline. Your bookmarked tweets can only be seen by you so don’t be ashamed anymore to save that thirst trap that graces the timeline or that weird tweet you want to harp on in your free time. To find the bookmarked tweet, tap your profile avi and in the menu, you will find the bookmark tab. From there you can view and remove your bookmarked tweets.

On top of bookmarks, you can also now share tweets via direct messages or any many other ways off the platform. Twitter is finally listening to their users and used the suggestions that were given to them while they worked on the new feature.

“We Tweeted ongoing updates as we built Bookmarks so we could incorporate your input as we worked. By working this way, we learned that you like to save replies so you can answer later and that you may share a Tweet hours or days later after you’ve bookmarked it. Thank you for being part of this process — your feedback was valuable in building this update, and it made it all the more fun for us as we built a new feature for you. As a result, we all have an easier way to save, share, and stay informed.”

Bookmarking tweets is a great idea now hopefully the next new feature is editing tweets we don’t want anything else.

Birdman Proclaims Nicki Minaj “The Best Female Ever In Hip-Hop”, Ignites Twitter War

Array

Source: WENN / WENN

Birdman stirred up the pot with his recent bold but expected statements in regard to his artist Nicki Minaj. In an interview with Rap-Up, he proclaimed the head barb in charge is the “greatest female ever in hip-hop”. As you can imagine the barbz rejoiced and fans of the likes of other iconic female rappers like Missy and Lil’Kim felt otherwise.

Well, she is his artist and she has made him a ton of money so this should come as no surprise he feels this way.Just days before on The Wendy Show, Birdman praised Nicki on there as well so he’s just doubling down on his statement at this point.

Birdman doesn’t hold back while gushing over the Queens rapper and putting her basically in a class all by herself and dropping evidence to back up his statement and raving about talent.

“I always say she’s the best ever, best female ever in hip-hop, hands down, facts. There’s no getting around it,” Birdman stated. There’s levels to this s**t. Very much levels to this s**t. She’s an elite.”

“Sometimes, you can put Nicki in a room with males on a rap, but if you put her on females, it’s nothing,” he explained. “She’s a monster in her own race.”

“She’s just a special talent. I’m blessed to have her a part of my team. She’s a special talent I’ve never heard before.” 

Some glowing words that should have Minaj where ever she is right now smiling from ear to ear. Minaj is currently on a social media hiatus but has been spotted recently in the studio. Birdman even gave us an update on what she is currently up stating that she is “focused” on new music. That seems to be the case after a photo of herself and DJ Clue popped up of them together in her studio.

Instagram Photo

As one would imagine the very opinionated platform that is Twitter had to chime in on Birdman’s bold statement. It’s a good mix of barbz co-signing the Cash Money head honcho and those tweeting bloody murder.

At the end of the day, it’s all a matter of opinion and Birdman is definitely entitled to his and Nicki’s accomplishments are hard to argue against but there is definitely other great women hip-hop as well. To see more fallout from Birdman’s proclamation hit the flip.

Twitter Isn’t Here For Justin Timberlake Breaking His Word On Prince

Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show

Source: Patrick Smith / Getty

The rumors were flying high that Justin Timberlake‘s Super Bowl LII Halftime Show would feature a likeness of Prince in hologram form, something the late singer was staunchly against. Although Prince collaborator Shelia E. said that the hologram performance wouldn’t go down, JT pulled a similar stunt with a superimposed image and Twitter isn’t having it.

During Timberlake’s set, a tribute to Prince was lavishly set up as a duet of sorts. Singing Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U,” Timberlake sat at a piano as an image of the late singer against a purple backdrop played. There was also a classy touch when the entire stadium was awash with purple light honoring Prince.

While the tribute would have made sense considering the Super Bowl was played in Minnesota, Prince specifically didn’t want his image used in that way nor did he particularly care for people covering his songs according to fans. The reaction on social media was largely negative towards Timberlake for the gesture, although some fans did enjoy the moment for what it was.

Mathew Knowles Thought Ex Tina Lawson Was White, Twitter Dragging Commences

Array

Source: WENN / WENN

Mathew Knowles might not be a favorite among the fans of his superstar daughter Beyoncé, and he’s clearly been outside of the family business since his divorce from ex-wife, Tina Lawson, in 2011. In a new interview with EBONY, the Texas Southern University professor and author discuss a new book, Racism: From The Eyes Of A Child, and in the chat he reveals he thought his ex-wife was a white woman.

From EBONY:

How have you and your family experienced colorism?

When I was growing up, my mother used to say, “Don’t ever bring no nappy-head Black girl to my house.” In the deep South in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, the shade of your Blackness was considered important. So I, unfortunately, grew up hearing that message.

I have a chapter in the book that talks about eroticized rage. I talk about going to therapy and sharing – one day I had a breakthrough – that I used to date mainly White women or very high-complexion Black women that looked White. I actually thought when I met Tina, my former wife, that she was white. Later I found out that she wasn’t, and she was actually very much in-tune with her Blackness.

I had been conditioned from childhood. Within eroticized rage, there was actual rage in me as a Black man, and I saw the White female as a way, subconsciously, of getting even or getting back. There are a lot of Black men of my era that are not aware of this thing.

On Twitter, the Beyhive and others on the periphery are taking epic shots at Knowles over his comments. The entire interview clearly shows Knowles has struggled with the effects of colorism while laboring a larger point, but some observers think this might just be a part of a media ploy to get eyes on the book.

NBA Twitter Reacts To DeMarcus Cousins’ Season-Ending Injury

DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins has long had a reputation for being a talented if mercurial basketball player but it was all coming together for him as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans. Boogie was having one hell of a year but was felled by a season-ending injury Friday night (Jan. 26) and Twitter has rallied around the big man in droves.

According to ESPN, the Pelicans center will have surgery to repair a torn left Achilles tendon and will not return for the rest of the 2017-2018 according to sources. The injury, which happened during his team’s eventual win over the Houston Rockets, was confirmed by sources that it was a full-on tear of the tendon. Pelicans Coach Alvin Gentry told ESPN via text message that he was enjoying the play of Cousins of late.

Across Twitter, NBA players and fans alike have shown support for Cousins, who was in a contract year and well on his way to getting something big offered to him on the back of his stellar play this season. We’ve collected some of the responses below.

Master of None actor and comedian Aziz Ansari has been accused of sexual assault. A 23-year-old photographer has accused Ansari of violating her after a date. 

The woman detailed her story to Babe. The photographer recounts meeting Ansari at a party and eventually going out on a date that didn’t go as planner for her.

Reports TMZ:

“The woman — who remains anonymous — claims she went on a date with him last year and ended up in his Tribeca apartment.  She claims he almost immediately began kissing, fondling and undressing her and then said he was going to grab a condom. The woman says she asked him to slow down, but he continued and performed oral sex on her.

She says when he started sticking his fingers in her throat she used “verbal and non-verbal cues” to indicate her discomfort. 

The woman says Ansari doesn’t know if he got the message, but when it eventually registered she said he said, “Of course, it’s only fun if we’re both having fun.”

She says Ansari continued to push himself on her.  She says she eventually left in tears.”

The accuser says she came forward because she saw Ansari rocking a Times Up pin at the Golden Globes.

Needless to say, Twitter has been debating these revelations. See some of the varied reactions below and on the flip.

Black Twitter Forms Like Voltron To Defend Ginuwine After Transphobic Claims Surfaced

Ginuwine found himself a hot topic on Twitter after a moment between him and Big Brother UK co-star India Willoughby got awkward real quick. On a recent episode of the unscripted series, Willoughby, who identifies as a transwoman, goes in for a kiss that Ginuwine walked away from and Twitter has been on fire all evening after the R&B crooner was slapped with the transphobic tag.

Ginuwine was asked by Willoughby would he date a transwoman during the show segment, to which he said no and then Willoughby making the rejected advance. From what we saw, the artist born Elgin Lumpkin wasn’t disrespectful in stating his opinion but apparently, some within the trans community thought otherwise.

The debate is an intense one indeed. One camp is suggesting that the “Pony” singer exhibited transphobia, while others are standing up for the DMV native by stating he should be allowed to date and see who he wants.

We have no real opinion on the matter and we’re just reporting the carnage that occurred online. However, we do want to know how in the hell Ginuwine ended up on Big Brother UK of all shows?

Peep the chatter below and on the following pages. We apologize in advance as some of the comments that follow might be deemed insensitive.

Meeting with Trump and urging Black people to give the petulant racist, sexist and ignoramus POTUS respect already had Harvey on the canceled list. Last nigh’s fit was just more evidence homie needs a visit from the Drop Squad.
