Odd Future singer/songwriter Frank Ocean slept on his Detroit fans, and they are hopping mad! Ocean, 24, stood up his devoted Detroit fans a few days ago -- some of them drove from several states away and stood in line for hours just to hear him sing (I don't know why because he sounds dreadful).

Read one disappointed fan's long, but emotional email after the break. This is what happens when you put insecure, narcissistic celebrities on pedestals; they look down on you.

Dear Sandra,

After reading your post on Gabrielle Douglas, I was compelled to write to you (once again). I do believe that you hit the mark with your scathing criticism of those who are so focused on her hairstyle, that they overlook her awe inspiring accomplishments. However, I disagree with the title of your post, your viewpoint, and those of others who continually lump all black people into one category, one community, etc. which ignores our diversity of cultures, ideas, attitudes, values and beliefs. The various opinions expressed on such egocentric social media sites as Facebook and Twitter only represent a minority of opinions. Please take the time to highlight the small ignorant few instead of titling your post 'Black Ignorance' because ignorance is equitably distributed accross all populations and Black people (which includes Africans, African Americans, Afro Carribeans, Cape Verdeans, Jamaicans, West Indians and etcetera) do not have a lock on ignorance. Thank you so much!
All the Best,

Mayweather was greeted by his mother and friends and family as he exited the Clark County Detention Center just after midnight Friday. The cowardly prize fighter looked emaciated and exhausted after serving two months of a three-month sentence in the misdemeanor domestic battery case. He wore the same grey hooded warmups that he had on when he was taken into custody on June 1.

    Gabrielle Douglas, who won 2 gold medals in the 2012 Summer Olympics, covers today's Washington Post. The 16-year-old, who is nicknamed "the flying squirrel," wowed the crowds with her incredible athletic prowess.

    In any other culture such amazing achievements would be a source of pride. But in the black community, there is a raging debate on the style and texture of Gabby's hair -- and the media is lapping it up. As a race we are already scraping rock bottom in America, but who ever thought we could go even lower?
