LiAngelo Ball Cody Riley Jalen Hill

Lonzo Ball’s brother, LiAngelo Ball, and two other UCLA rookie basketball players will remain on house arrest at a Hangzhou, China hotel when the UCLA Bruins return to the U.S. after defeating Georgia Tech 63-60 in the season opener in Shanghai on Saturday.

6-foot-5 LiAngelo, 18, Cody Riley, 19, and Jalen Hill, 17, will not return to the United States when the team departs China on Saturday.

LiAngelo Ball

The three players were arrested on Tuesday after they allegedly shoplifted a pair of expensive sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton boutique in a shopping center next door to their hotel.

Police say the trio also shoplifted items from two other stores in the shopping center, which houses Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques.

The players were released on bond on Wednesday and confined to their lakeside hotel. They did not suit up or play in the season opener on Saturday.

Chinese authorities have up to 37 days to decide whether to pursue official approval for a formal arrest, Margaret Lewis, a law professor at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, told the Los Angeles Times.

LiAngelo’s father LaVar Ball, right, and his younger brother LaMelo, 16, left, visited LiAngelo, center, at the UCLA hotel on Wednesday.

ESPN reports LaVar and LaMelo have been staying at the team hotel all week.

LaVar and LaMelo signed autographs at a Big Baller Brand pop-up shop in Shanghai on Friday night, where about 100 people stood in line.

Father and son will leave Shanghai for Hong Kong on Sunday. They will open another pop-up shop in Hong Kong on Tuesday.

“I’m going to wait until I get some more intel on what’s going on, and then I can tell you what’s up,” LaVar told a reporter as he left the team hotel on Wednesday.

When asked if he was worried about LiAngelo, he replied: “He’ll be fine. He’ll be fine. Everybody making it a big deal. It ain’t that big of a deal.”

    “It ain’t that big of a deal”. That’s why your dumb ass son thought he could walk into a high-end store in a foreign country and shoplift without any consequences. He’ll get expelled from UCLA next.

  • Rayne

    If he don’t act right abroad he ain’t gone act right no where. Keep em.

  • bhavana

    I was thinking the same thing. Shame on the father for saying it’s not a big deal. It would have been better for him to keep his mouth shut and say “no comment.”

  • TheOwley

    And to think the father and older brother have enough money to buy them all those items 500 times over. This is affluenza. If they walk away from the charges, it’s incurable affluenza. This man will ruin his son’s career and is well on his way with the other two. Them judges don’t play overseas. I can’t fathom the stupidity.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    You’d have to be a special kind of stupid to risk going to PRISON in a foreign country.

  • TooMuchTea

    It’s a Big Damn Deal! China don’t play!

  • ?Royalty?

    If the story of the wh!te dude who went to jail over tearing down some posters in a foreign country, only to come home half dead – wasn’t enough to deter you from acting like an idiot in a foreign country – than you deserve all matter of insanity set to come your way. SMH

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Dummies. He better watch the movie “Brokedown Palace.” Those Asian countries don’t play when it comes to crime and they don’t care if you’re American. I wonder whose bright idea that was.

  • Li

    I betcha dad is loving Donald Trump right about now. Kissing his ar se and everything to get his sons out of China.

  • Li

    Well, let’s think about your statement. We don’t know if they have enough money to do anything besides pay the mortgage. Dad was pushing really really hard for his sons to be big ballers. Maybe they owe a lot of money….we don’t know.

  • hotntot95

    These fools bout as sharp as a bowling ball…SMH…they gon fuk around and get they hands chopped off or life just for stealing..China’s legal system is no joke..

  • Enoughsaid2020

    This is why these dumb ninjas need to learn the laws in different countries, they don’t play. Some countries will either cut off your arm, or give you life for stealing. SMH!

  • TheOwley

    lol. If you say so. Can’t give his bro a buck or tow. Maybe we can set up a gofundme account for the kid.

    Not a big deal????!!!!?
    This guy is too old to be this ignorant. Your son is being detained by China, not the corner bodega!

    LMAO!!!!!

  • ?Royalty?

    Yes! It was based on a true story – I heard. They say one of those girls never came home.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    It ain’t that big of a deal that your child is a thief? Oh ok

  • klwbaby

    They gave this son a Ferrari and bought their handy man a new truck. They have money, he was being young and dumb. But being young and dumb in the US is a lot of different than being that in China.

    They’re gonna learn and learn the hard way! I don’t feel sorry for them, and Daddy needs to shut his potato trap. He’s a poor example of a father.

  • NeverSurprised

    This does not bode well. Jack Ma, the head of Alibaba and one of, if not THE, richest and most influential man in China, intervened on the boys’ behalf. If Ma wasn’t able to get them released, then LaVar Ball SHOULD be worried about his son.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Lordt you didn’t call LaVar Mr. Potato Head…….*dead*

  • Jay

    When your in College you do dumb things. Unfortunately China don’t care how young you are. They are overly heavy handed in there laws an even the way they punish there own people.They have executed for less offense. They are not the most open minded Country.

  • JRock

    Your son stealing ain’t that big of a deal? I told my son that as fast as those Balls come up they will go down just as fast because of a stupid and ignorant father which they have.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Yes. I travel a lot but after seeing that movie you’ll never catch my black ass in Asia! Talk about a permanent vacation – ain’t nobody got time for that!

  • Vonn

    Your son was arrested for theft, in CHINA of all places…but it’s not a big deal. Ok Herman.

  • CaramelDrop

  • TooMuchTea

    ROFL!!! That’s a good one.

  • http://www.nicolaloves.com/ NicolaLoves

    Sorry, I don’t buy that.

    Shop lifting in a foreign country at swanky stores isn’t a dumb thing people do in college.

    They naively assumed security would be lapse. My guess, someone in the group has had sticky fingers for a while. They just never got caught, or because they were basketball stars in whatever town they grew up with, they were given a pass when they did. They are lucky they are such high-profile stars, they should be sitting in a jail cell, not under house arrest in their hotel.

    By the way:
    Stealing goods worth between 1,000 and 2,500 yuan ($150 to $380), for example, comes with a maximum sentence of six months but could result in merely a fine.

    Anyone convicted of stealing goods for more than that amount, however, would face jail time. Someone convicted of stealing goods worth between 7,000 and 10,000 yuan ($1,050 to $1,510) would face between two and three years in jail under Chinese law.

    LV sunglasses start at $450 US, and they had items from 3 stores. I don’t think they’ll get jail time though . . but they are black and that country is racist as all hell.(I met some whose is studying there – she wasn’t ready for it).

  • Chocolate

    What an idiot.
    It amazes me what some ppl are willing to jeopardize doing dumb ?.

  • Rahab

    Oh it’s a big deal all right. If someone stole from a pop up shop would it be a big deal. I wonder if the other two young men come from “influential” families and who was the ring leader. One store would would be a potential mistake, but several high end stores is more than a coincidence.

  • Rahab

    He’s not fooling anyone. He is indeed worried and doing all he can to intervene on his son’s behalf. The other two may not fair too well. He should not be allowed to play college ball at all. All Pop’s hard work down the drain.

  • GuestSTAR

    If you steal in some Middle Eastern countries, they will cut your hands off.

  • Noirluv45

    I sure did, but I can’t take credit for that term. My friend told me her sisters says that all the time. ?

  • IamAllnatural

    IKR, the law is very different overseas. If he gets 5 years for stealing sunglasses, will it be a big deal then. What an idiot.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Sad all around, I wonder if serving 3 to 10 years in jail is nothing to him.

  • Noirluv45

    Yup! ?

  • Tony

    They killed that white kid Otto for stealing a flag. I pray they make it home safely

  • IamAllnatural

    The last thing you want to do in another country is break their laws. His dad is in denial saying it’s no big deal. He should be very afraid.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Star thief!!

  • IamAllnatural

    Good luck with that because those foreign leaders don’t like trump!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    They gon learn today!!!

  • starbright9449

    Do they even have contracts yet??? Cause hate to think you’re not even signed and you’re already acting a fool. You’re shoplifting brands of people that secretly hate your people. They dont care how light skinned you are, they will look at your hair texture and features and say ‘nig***’. What I look like stealing the brands of the wealthy whites? Especially when they feel like they’re better.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    He is or should be!!! It’s one thing to want the best for your child/children, like we all do. But covering up for their crime, is a whole nother ball game. If the child thought/knows it is wrong, what is he going to think when dad says, it’s no big deal, REALLY!!!

  • MsPam

    LaVar will think it’s a big deal when LiAngelo is put on skinny cats/dogs duty.

  • Evillene

    Did they actually steal something? It is racist China and they are black. They could have been targeted. Just as Asians have been known to do in this country.

  • Noirluv45

    Sure will!!!

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Lavar better know it’s very important and serious.

  • R in NYC

    I just read that my Christmas cookies were made in China…..wtf???…..Every frigging thing is made in that country.
    As for this story…..never break the law in a foreign country. Remember what they did to that white college kid in North Korea for snatching down a poster.

  • Bonsai

    I think he’ll be alright. They just wanna let him know that this is serious but they’ll let him go scott free.

  • nyla00

    It’s probably fake merchandise they stole anyway. Chinese folk infamous for bootlegging crap.
    Sidebar is that Lavar man mentally challenged?

  • Pebbles

    Yup! Don’t care WHO you are….

  • Pamela

    That was in North Korea, not China.

  • Malcom Flex

    Their knuckle head father raised them to think they’re better than everybody like they’re white boys. N-word wake up call.

  • Malcom Flex

    He’s trying to play it off his brand is F’ed up right now.

  • Vonn

    As big as the dad’s mouth is I’m surprised he hasn’t appealed to his president for assistance. Unless he is making a behind-the-scenes deal/pay-off.

  • Vonn

    Totally.

  • Vonn

    Asian countries usually aren’t lenient with crime & punishment. It will be interesting to see this play out. They better keep their asses in that hotel though.

  • MsPam

    Stop with the race bullish!

  • Vonn

    The school should have laid out rules regarding their behavior during this trip as well.

  • Dainese

    I dont think LB stole anything. His family has the money.
    Youngest son has a Ferrari or something else fancy, and with the type of upbringing Big LB has been shown to lay out.. meh. I don’t think so.

  • the guest

    Why discriminate against these young men because they are not black? So what they’re are biracial. LaVar Ball raises his sons like any proud and loving father should. Teens no matter what their skin color get into mischief.

  • the guest

    Agreed. House arrest in that luxury hotel, he’ll be fine until this blows over.

  • Maxima

    Sorry , that asshat father raised them to be spoilt, conceited nuevo riche brats. They are going to have a difficult time in life. This is the first in a long line of many N-wake up calls.

  • Maxima

    No, he is just obnoxious and needs to lean in on his so’s shine.

  • Maxima

    THIS!!

  • McKay

    Probably the friends did and he didn’t know and got held with them. When my sorry ass friends do that shit I wait for them outside. I don’t play that. Never had a criminal record and don’t plan on to either.

  • McKay

    Or maybe their father raised them to have enough confidence in themselves….Was your father in your life growing up?

  • McKay

    ??

  • McKay

    You can tell all that by…..???

  • McKay

    All these people bashing his father on how he raised his boys makes me wonder if your fathers was in your life….?

  • Ms. Jackson

    Exactly. Everyone I read a report where his father says he’ll be alright… I get more and more nervous. China don’t play. Shiddd, doesn’t that go for any Asian country?

  • the guest

    He is not light skinned. He is biracial. Not all biracial people have course or curly hair texture or black features. What then? This happens to be two black and one biracial young adults who got into mischief. House arrest in a luxury hotel? White young adults have gotten paddled, under the jail, and murdered for mischief in other countries. Other countries see all Americams as entitled.

  • the guest

    I really think the deal for his son has already been sealed and LaVar could take him home. But the other two young men are not being offered a behind the scenes deal.

  • hottlanta

    So if someone criticize him they had no dad at home? We can criticize him because we know the difference between a father and a pimp. All he is worried about is pop up stores and making money. SNL did a great job last night. I guess who did the skit had no dad at home either.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTrJJG_3ow8

  • hottlanta

    ROTFLMAO at your comment which is tooooo funny that wealthy people don’t steal.

  • hottlanta

    If they are successful they are biracial I guess that is suppose to make them sound more exotic. if they are criminals they are black no more no less. When you are wealthy everyone wants a piece of you, when you are poor naw go back to the other side. Never heard the media say a biracial person robbed a bank or committed a crime. Never heard the family come to their defense on television and say they felt insulted that the media said they were black and not biracial and demand an apology for the improper racial labeling.

  • dontgetblocked

    Good points.

  • ArDnAhC45

    Right…hilarious. Like the story of the millionaires who were getting food stamps a few years. The rich do steal.

  • Scorpiess

    I wonder if they have been called ‘Black Devil’ yet.

  • https://vidozz.com/cyq ? Kari ?????????

    Since when is stealing ok and not a big deal, especially in another country? Shame on these boys

  • https://vidozz.com/cyq ? Kari ?????????

    What? You stand outside knowing your ‘friends’ are stealing inside? Get a fricken life

  • https://vidozz.com/cyq ? Kari ?????????

    Don’t you have a store to stand outside of while your friends steal?

  • https://vidozz.com/cyq ? Kari ?????????

    Was your father in your stoopid criminal life? If he was shame on him

  • hottlanta

    I guess they forgot about Wynonna Ryder stealing $5000.00 of stuff outta Neiman’s and also wealthy folks in public housing as they call it rent control apartments in New York.

  • hottlanta

    They have the same argument about Barak but that never stopped him from being discriminated against or being called the “N” word. Instead that made it worst to remind him and keep him in his place.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    His dad taught him confidence (which I don’t knock) but without also instilling humility, he still fell short of preparing him for the Real World, smh. ?

  • hottlanta

    You were the lookout for your stealing friends and you are bragging about that as if you were better than them. The majority of criminals haven’t been locked up.

  • hottlanta

    It didn’t matter if one of the young men were biracial or not the Dump plane has left China and they wasn’t on board.

  • KHJ2016

    One day, one of these brothers will snap and we’ll hear about how horrible and abusive the father was and I’m just waiting for that day.

  • GeekGirl627

    I’m sure they did. They probably laughed through the little orientations or skipped it. When these schools go out of the country both the parents and the kids have to attend.

  • GeekGirl627

    Yup, arrogance will mess you up every time.

  • GeekGirl627

    It’s not about the money..its about the “let’s see if we can get away with it and do it for the gram” with these kids…

    They will not be laughing in the Chinese jail when their job is to inspect individual grains of rice for imperfections.

    There was a time when the headlines would say the players were kicked off the team & lose their scholarships.

  • MythCalledLove

    The Joe Jackson of basketball.

  • MythCalledLove

    I have a terrific father that didnt control or micromanage my life. The lives of these boys do not seem like they are allowed to live. That dad is like a stage mom. You can be strict but these boys are like robots. When they get older they will resent him and more than likely act out because when your life is micromanaged and all of a sudden you don’t have the regime and minute by minute control of your actions you are in full control of your life and nolonger under the thumb of your father you do $h!t like this.

  • MythCalledLove

    Right!? Kleptomania doesn’t discriminate. Winona Ryder, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan. Ring any bells.

  • MythCalledLove

    It was Saks but I said the same thing in my comment…lol .Amanda Bynes she stole a hat out of Neimans I think

  • hottlanta

    Naw, them Jackson boys new better than to steal/embarrass their dad publically like that because they know Joe would have come down there and whup that azz in the jail cell and all the way home. You never heard one thing bad about them while growing up. They can do whatever they wanna do now because they are grown. You can’t have 8 kids in the house without whupping somebody’s azz.

  • hottlanta

    Thanks for the correction. Then Amanda went around setting people driveways on fire and still didn’t go to jail while Brittany has a long running show in Vegas. Yep crime does pay but not for black folks. When we steal we are thieves but when white people steal they are kleptomaniacs. Getting all fancy and stuff.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Why do you need to be told not to shoplift? That’s not a country specific law. Smh. Kids are stupid and in this instance I dont think the apples fell to far from the tree.

    China’s stealing so much of Africa’s natural resources ,there also making moves in the Caribbean their some sneaky so an so!s. China can do one ,l hope their economy implodes

  • Ghost

    Sometimes things happen as a WAKE UP CALL! Lavar Ball is embarrassed and NERVOUS…that’s why he keeps saying its not a big deal. He has never been in the position before and its a tough one..smh. This didn’t happen in the US so everything is in China’s control. I truly believe he loves his sons and wants nothing but the best..but sometimes too much too soon and no accountability can be dangerous. Some kids can handle it and others can’t…and this son couldn’t

    Its no way in HELL he should have been over there stealing nor hanging out with players that steal! If by the GRACE of God he gets out of this one or wounds up doing time in China..its a WAKE UP CALL for this family..they now know they are not invincible and money can’t buy everything..

  • Dainese

    Oh brother.
    Only online in the comment section do people get up in arms when people have a varying opinion.

    Besides the RICH part.. I mentioned HIS FATHER who seems to have a tight grip on his boys.

    In this case, based on “his upbringing”, as noted before, I dont think THIS CHILD stole anything.

    I can’t speak for the people in your stories. I can’t actually speak for LB either.

    This is my opinion.
    Yours differs.
    Nothing to see here.

  • Dainese

    Just to note…these are white people.

  • Dainese

    Again. White people.

    I think rich white people steal because they know no one is checking for them.

    I could be wrong.
    Im not white.. So I dont know.

  • Dainese

    WM? White man?
    Yea. I could see that.

  • Malcom Flex

    I also used to know a little raggedy white boy he was from big family money at parties he used to go steal rummaging through drawers in any room. A friend busted him in the act and he got 86’ed from our social circle. Point I’m making is rich people steal anybody steals.

  • Malcom Flex

    LOL you said you didn’t think LB stole because his family had money and I said you’re from the hood to think that way based on lack of diversity experience. Wealth has nothing to do with stealing.

    His father present as an abusive dad.

  • Leigh Burton

    They are white boys with a black father!

  • McKay

    That doesn’t answer my question. I’ll repeat the question again. You know all this by….?

  • McKay

    Interesting….

  • McKay

    Thanks for your response.

  • McKay

    As I mentioned, I left the store and went about my business. Hope you understand. I’m better to know that I don’t need to steal…. Comprende?

  • McKay

    So immature…..

  • McKay

    Uh?? ?

  • McKay

    You are right cause I’m not standing beside them while they put items in their bag. Outside the store are other stores where I can go and finish my shopping with MY cash….Comprende?

  • McKay

    Probably…..Leave a legacy for your family. Go Dad!!

  • grenadiadrian

    “These are white people.” Now you’re out here moving goal posts because your original post of wealthy people not stealing got blown up. Just to note…you didn’t mention anything race related in your first post.

  • Malcom Flex

    NO they are biracials with a white mother but outside of the USA they’re BLACK MEN.

  • EMILY POST

    China is Running Ish… America is using those black Athletes in College like $2 whores. So why is American Colleges Pimping out College athletes in the first place…
    These liberal institutions Should be at least forced to contribute to the neighborhoods and Communities in America not go over and Court Chinese Business men.
    The New Black Athlete lives in some kind of fantasy world and no one including their parents and the community is bringing them into reality. Now I don’t know what kind of issues with Stealing they have because if you going to China to Steal you are really dumb and need to be in School.
    Why are they over there in the first place isnt UCLA on a Quarter system… The school really doesn’t value education for the Athlete.
    They obviously are poor… and Why in the world is the NCAA having these College Athletes Play a tournament in China?????
    The Schools need to start paying the Athletes since they are giving the Big F U to Education.

  • the guest

    Ironic and ignorant that retail security guards follow black people around stores because it is elderly white women that are statistically proven to be the highest percentage of shoplifters and retail loss through chronic returns.

  • EMILY POST

    The Blacks in Hollywood never miss an opportunity to embarrass and mock other black people.
    If Lonzo ball is popular its because ESPN made him.

  • the guest

    I agree. I don’t think he stole. But I do think he is standing in solidarity with his two friends. Nothing a parent can do when a stubborn teen aged child won’t rat on their friends and are willing to go down with their friends. That’s what’s happening here.

  • the guest

    Rich white people love food stamps and fix their paperwork to get them.

  • hottlanta

    Keep dropping that knowledge. They been doing that for years by building roads, railroads and other infrastructures in Africa. If you read the financial sections, the world has never seen Africa has a financial power house and that is done on purpose. They skip over Africa and go straight to Saudi Arabia. The only advertisement that you can really see about Africa is on a safari tour in travel magazines and just like Jamaica they put a lot of money in those animal reserves but don’t put it in the outline communities. I got so tired of seeing those commercials with kids with flies all in their eyes and a dry well I wanted to scream. I had to curse one young man out because he thought of Africa asTarzan in the jungle and I had to tell him that Africa is more modern than that. It is a shame you gotta educate people in 2017 about Africa vast reserves. China said okay the west is gonna ignore Africa I am gonna go right in and make that money. You are right I saw a lot of Chinese people in St. Martin. Freaked me out.

  • hottlanta

    If he came from a single parent household would you say he stole the items without hesitation. You sound heartbroken. I know kids who got mommy/daddy at home who murdered someone. Tell me since when did having dad a home prevents someone from committing a crime.

  • hottlanta

    I read in the Wall Street Journal once how wealthy white people were getting their doctors to fix paperwork for their kids to be labeled as “disabled” so lil Billy didn’t have to take certain texts to get to college. I was like you dumbing your child down for college. That freaked me the fyck out.

  • hottlanta

    So you associated with criminals,knew it and yet they lacked character according to you. You bought your items with cash while they stole their items and yall met up at the food court. If I knew of someone who was a thief I wouldn’t be with them because they will steal from me.

  • hottlanta

    Outside of their front door and past the gate they are black.

  • hottlanta

    Black folks been making fun of each other for years. It ain’t nothing new.

  • hottlanta

    They just got 2 white women at Walmart. They were at the self checking line, had items for $30.00 with stickers they had taken off other items which totaled over $1000.00 which didn’t ring up. Wow they were truly helping themselves. This is not their first time doing this because they were bold. It just happen this time they got caught.

  • EMILY POST

    Black folks been… Nah at one time Black Entertainers had a lot more pride and togetherness with the black community. Black people in Hollywood especially liberal Hollywood the majority are Coons so nothing shocks me of what they will say and do for money. I am not a Ball fan but he is a Creation of hype from ESPN. No one is making fun of ESPN.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    They probably did, these dumb ninjas, always think they know more, and now they see, this is what can happen, when you don’t listen. SMH!

  • Dowoop

    In lots of Caribbean countries they are setting up their own communities and treating the native black people like scum. Some of these countries have not so smart governments who sign contracts promising them land and natural resources for pennies.

  • Dowoop

    Sorry to say but most kids steal at one point or another. They may not get caught and it may just be for shits and giggles but kids do dumb shit regardless of how they were raised especially when they in a group.

    stealing is not a big LaVar Ball????? Yes it is!

  • ThottyPippen

    I don’t even care about the shoplifting stuff (that’ll be handled and I’m sure a lesson learned the hard way). My question why are they in a tournament in China and have the nerves to have harsh sanctions on these players for receiving cash, when they’re pimping these athletes out and making MONEY off them.

  • McKay

    NCAA
    Basketball (or any other NCAA sport) is not pimping or whoring out
    athletes. They are receiving a free
    education based on their athletic abilities.
    UCLA Tuition and other fees (books, living, personal, etc.) is about $34K
    – $62K depending on if a student is a Cali vs non-Cali resident. When did traveling outside of the US become a
    bad thing? You are exposed to different cultures
    on a free international trip. If these
    athletes succeed academically, they’ll receive a degree & if they succeed
    athletically, they’ll go pro and make money that
    most everyday people will not see in their lifetime. You are overthinking this. 3 UCLA basketball players went to China and
    stole and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. It was not their property to take. It’s called personal responsibility and
    hopefully a life lesson. Go pro and
    return to China and buy-out the whole store if you choose to. In some Middle East countries, you lose a
    hand for stealing.

    So that means anyone of African descent, can walk into a store in China and steal? They stole items that do not belong to them and I hope they receive the full punishment. It’s called personal responsibility. Hopefully, it will be life lesson for them.

    Some people steal for the thrill of it. It’s the thrill of getting away with it. Strangers Things’ actress Winona Ryder used to shoplift. She was even arrested years ago for it. She’s not poor or in need.

    Have you seen those Chinese people attack suspected shoplifters in their stores on YouTube?! Girl, no ma’am! None for me!

  • Quitedeliteful

    I did — and the Chinese do not play!!! I don’t know what it will take to get these young dumb-asses out of this mess…

  • EMILY POST

    Now about them stealing… not the brightest move. Yet they should be in America in somebodies classroom not performing out the country like circus monkeys while they are in college
    The NCAA as pimping them out try to court some Chinese dude to buy a nba team they already said it on television.

    Typically, experience is the best teacher. Maybe they have learned a valuable lesson.
