Ashley Walters was seen for the first time in public since breaking down on social media as he recalled being stabbed by a white racist gang as a teenager.

Ashley was pictured out for a jog in his North London neighborhood.

The 30-year-old rapper broke down in tears in an emotional response to George Floyd's death.

In response to his fans questioning why he remained silent about Floyd's death in the U.S., Ashley recalled being jumped by a racist gang in London when he was only 15.

"I've spent the evening in my feelings and my thoughts about this George Floyd situation," the Bulletproof actor said.

"My point of coming on here today is that no one can tell me I am complicit. I haven't posted anything about the scenario for several reasons, but for the main one, I've been posting this thing all of my f***ing career."

Ashley, who was comforted by his wife Danielle, continued:

"I've seen black people and big corporations posting 'Your silence is a betrayal'. Don't ever f***ing tell me that my silence is a f***ing betrayal when I've been left for dead on the street by white men. Stabbed and left for dead and these people have never been brought to justice."

Ashley is known his star role as Dushane in Top Boy, and his role as Antoine in Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

Stassi Schroeder's little brother pleaded for forgiveness for his sister after she and other "Vanderpump Rules" cast members were fired for racist incidents in the past.

According to Page Six, in a now-deleted Instagram video, Nikolaoi Czermak, 15, pleaded:

"This goes out to Lisa Vanderpump, 'Vanderpump Rules,' Bravo TV, anyone that has been involved with Stassi getting fired. I want everyone to hear me out because my sister is one of the most loving people you will ever meet in your life. She deeply apologizes for what she said and I'm so desperate for her to succeed ... I just want her to go as far as she can."

Nikolai, who appeared in episodes with Stassi, continued:

"I'm asking for another chance for her, and she'll show everyone how good of a person she is and how much she cares about everyone. She likes entertaining people, that's why she does all this TV stuff ... My family is heartbroken from what’s been going on with her. Everything’s been taken away from her."

Brands terminated Stassi's sponsorships and Bravo TV fired her after former castmate Faith Stowers recalled a racist incident in 2018.

Faith, 31, appeared on Instagram Live chat with "Floribama Shore" star Candace Rice and discussed a 2018 incident where Stassi and co-star Kristen Doute tried to get cops to investigate her for a crime she did not commit.

Faith said Stassi read a Daily Mail article about a light-skinned woman who resembled Faith. "I guess this woman was robbing people," Faith said. "And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from, actually, Stassi during an interview."

Stassi bragged about her detective work on "the Bitch Bible" podcast in 2018, saying, "We are like, we just solved a f--cking crime. We start calling the police. The police don't give a f--k."

Bravo also fired Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni on Tuesday for their past racist tweets.

Nikolai addressed Faith in his video, begging:

"Faith, please, is there any way that she can fix anything or do anything that can benefit both of you guys — to get her career back and to make you live the best life ever? Is there anything that we can do for you? Please. I don't want to see my sister like this anymore … I love all you guys, but please, one more chance to forgive her."

Stassi apologized to Faith on Instagram, although Faith says she hasn't heard directly from her.

Faith told Page Six: "I feel so vindicated studios and production are able to see blatant racism and make these positive changes and help move the race forward — help with the fight forward."

Pop singer/rapper Lizzo shared a powerful TikTok video clip blasting all those who criticize her for her looks and her body size.

"Hey, so I've been working out consistently for the last 5 years and it may come as a surprise to some of y'all that I'm not working out to have your ideal body type," she says over videos that show her working out intensely.

"I'm working out to have my ideal body type and you know what type that is? None of your f**king business! Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job," she said.

Lizzo went on to curse out each and every hater who don't look in the mirror before they criticize others.

"So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald's or workout or not workout, how about you look at your own f**king self and worry about your own goddamn body because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside, health is also what happens on the inside. And a lot of y'all need to do a f**king cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day."

Lizzo has been mocked and teased relentlessly on social media for not having a slim, curvy body like other singers in her field.

The 32-year-old star admitted she's depressed and sometimes cries herself to sleep due to the excessive bullying. She has considered deleting her social media accounts, but the draw to social media is too powerful to let go.

In her hit song "Truth Hurts," Lizzo said "why food great 'til I gotta lose weight." The singer has ramped up her exercise and dieting routines - but not to appease others. To inspire others to eat healthy and workout so they can live long, healthy lives.

"Wild 'N Out" star B. Simone was dragged by her baby hairs on social media for saying she is not interested in dating a man who works an honest 9-5 job.

It's hard for women to find hard working men who provide for their family. Simone said she wants that rare, hard to find single man who owns his own business or is at least the CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

An audio of an interview between Simon and Nick Cannon recently surfaced online. The audio enraged social media users -- particularly men who work hard for a living.

In the video, shared by Power 106 FM, Simone said her ideal man "can't have a 9-5... he has to be an entrepreneur," she told Cannon, before adding she wants someone who is "CEO status."

"You don't want him to have a honest job? He can't clock in and clock out?" asked Cannon.

"You're not going to understand my lifestyle. You're not going to understand why I have to be up at 3 a.m," said Simone.

Cannon didn't ask Simon what, if anything, she had to offer a man of such lofty status.

Actor Daniel Radcliffe apologized to the transgender community for Harry Potter author JK Rowling's comments about male-to-female transgender people.

Rowling objected to an article referring to biological women as "people who menstruate."

"'People who menstruate.' I'm sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?" Rowling tweeted on June 6.

"The idea that women like me, who've been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they're vulnerable in the same way as women - ie, to male violence - 'hate' trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences - is nonsense."

In response, the 30-year-old Harry Potter star released a statement to The Trevor Project insisting MtF trans people are women.

"To all the people who now feel that their experience of the books has been tarnished or diminished, I am deeply sorry for the pain these comments have caused you," he said.

"Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I," Radcliffe said.

He acknowledged that Rowling is responsible for his career and he said certain press outlets will probably paint his statement as "in-fighting between JK Rowling and myself, but that is really not what this is about, nor is it what's important right now."

Below are Rowling's tweets that sparked the firestorm.

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris's daughter Deyjah Harris seemed to move one step closer to accusing him of abusing her as a child.

Last week, the 18-year-old beauty sparked rumors that she was abused when she was 11 years old. She criticized Black families for ignoring childhood abuse and specifically for protecting the abusers in their families.

"Ok I'm so tired of how the black community doesn't speak up on the things that happens in the family ............... stop protecting the men and women that touch children (sic)!!!!!"

Her outburst prompted social media to speculate that someone - a male - in Deyjah's family may have abused her.

In response to a follower who wrote, "dis not da time for dat," she raged:

"IT ALL MATTERS. it all matters. violence, police brutality, abuse, sexual harassment, etc. IT ALL MATTERS. When did i ever come out my mouth and say 'hey one issue matters more than the other' ...... you keep tryna justify what you saying and you still ain't making sense. how is what i said tearing each other in any way? please help me understand, IF ANYTHING IM PROTECTING YALL!!!!!"

In a preview for next week's episode of Friends & Family Hustle, Deyjah explained why she and her father, T.I., are not particularly close.

"Things are completely awkward between me and my dad," she said. "The situation is just a little traumatizing for me." She added she just "didn't want to be around" T.I.

In an earlier post, Deyjah said she suffered from mental health issues including depression as a result of what happened to her when she was 11 years old.

Insiders have noticed over the years that Deyjah is usually the only child missing from the Harris family functions and photo shoots.

Deyjah is T.I.'s eldest daughter.

CNN anchor Don Lemon praised Jimmy Fallon for his honesty and bravery after the late night talk show host apologized for wearing blackface during a comedy skit.

Lemon appeared on Monday's "Tonight Show" special episode via Skype as Fallon returned to the show after a hiatus.

Fallon, his voice cracking, apologized for wearing dark makeup and a short afro wig to impersonate comedian/actor Chris Rock during an episode of Saturday Night Live.

"I had to really examine myself this week because a story came out about me on SNL doing an impression of Chris Rock, in black face, and I was horrified," Fallon said. "Not of the fact that people were trying to cancel me or cancel the show… but the thing that haunts me the most was how do I say, 'I love this person. I respect this guy more than I respect most humans. I'm not a racist don't feel this way.' And instead what I kept getting advised was to just stay quiet and not say anything."

"That's exactly what we all need to do is examine ourselves," Lemon said. "That was really honest and very brave of you and I appreciate you having the depth really to do what you did in that opening monologue."

Jamie and her husband, Douglas Hehner, recently welcomed a baby boy.

"One of the first things I realized is change starts at home, with our children," the Married at First Sight cast member captioned an Instagram slideshow on Sunday.

"And our home is so WHITE. All of Gracie's toys are white (except for a cute doll our Fran @msjay1964 sent when she was born), her books are filled with white characters & most of the shows she watches are with white kids.? So, we bought Gracie her first black baby doll & some books where black kids shine."

The former reality star added: "Of course she doesn't even realize her new baby is black. Children are so innocent it's beautiful. I want her to continue to love without even thinking about skin tones."

Jamie, 33, decided to educate herself on racial issues after a Black man was killed in police custody in Minneapolis, sparking riots and looting across America.

Kelly Rowland slammed a contestant on The Voice Australia for calling her "beautiful" during the Blind Auditions on Sunday night. The American singer is a judge on the popular TV talent show.

Kelly said the compliment from music teacher Ricky Muscat was "so degrading" and dismissive of her long, hard years in the music industry.

The former Destiny's Child singer turned her chair when Ricky auditioned. Singer Boy George also turned his chair to Ricky, who eventually chose the Culture Club frontman.

"George, I love you. Kelly, you're so beautiful," said Ricky. "The coach that I am choosing is George."

Ricky was then shown hugging the male judges while Kelly sat in her chair steaming. She then stood to embrace Ricky, but he ignored her.

Kelly's fellow judge Delta Goodrem sat next to Kelly to comfort her.

"It is the most frustrating s**t," Kelly fumed. "You know what's so frustrating? To be called beautiful... it's so degrading. It really pi**es me off," she raged. "Like 'oh, you're so cute', or 'you're so pretty'. I've been here (in the music industry) for 20-something years, you know what I mean?"

The 39-year-old mother-of-one insisted she was not upset at being passed over for Boy George, 58.

"I don't care who he (Ricky) would have chosen, it's just the fact that he chose George and goes 'you, you're a woman, you're pretty', that makes me upset. Oh, that irritates me to no end!"

However, George dismissed Kelly's pettiness: "I think Kelly's upset because he called her pretty. I love it when people call me pretty, please!"

Fans of the show point out that, before Ricky chose George, Kelly called Ricky "handsome". He may have been returning the compliment.

Question: If you were pushing 40, would you be outraged if a man called you beautiful?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been quietly educating themselves about Black Lives Matter.

The former Royal couple, who denounced their royal duties in 2019, were chastised for their silence on the death of George Floyd, the 46-year-old Black male who was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer.

According to Meghan's biographer Omid Scobie, the couple, who is leasing Tyler Perry's Beverly Hills mansion, is meeting quietly with people "on all levels" to ensure they are "connected to the issues of police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement," according to DailyMail.com.

Black Lives Matter is an American political organization that is reportedly funded by billionaire globalist George Soros. BLM is only active during election years in America.

The group promotes the ideology that Black life matters only if we are murdered by a white police officer.

BLM only protests police brutality while ignoring the more troubling statistic that Black males murder more Black people in America than any other race.

Black males are only 7% of the U.S. population, yet they commit 53% of all murders and 46% of violent crimes in the United States. The majority of their victims are Black men, women and children.

Deelishis, real name Chandra Davis, tied the knot with Raymond Santana Jr., of Central Park 5 fame, at a small ceremony in Duluth, Georgia on Sunday.

The couple got engaged in October 2019 after less than 6 months of dating. They have children from previous relationships.

Reality TV personality Kandi Burruss, who attended the quickie wedding, posted photos from the nuptials on her Instagram.

 

She captioned one image: "Congratulations @santanaraymond & @iamsodeelishis!!!!! I’m so happy for y'all & Im happy to say that I had a little something to do with this love connection!"

She captioned another photo: "Sorry fellas she's off the market now! @iamsodeelishis..."

Deelishis, 42, is best known as the winner of VH1's hit reality TV show Flavor of Love 2. She was chosen by rapper Flavor Flav over season 1 runner-up Tiffany 'New York' Pollard.

Santana, 45, is one of five Black and Hispanic teenagers arrested for the rape and assault of a white executive, dubbed the Central Park jogger, in Manhattan, NY in 1989.

A Hispanic male later confessed to the crime and the five men were released from prison after serving sentences ranging from 6 to 13 years. They were compensated with a multi-million dollar settlement.

The Central Park 5 case was featured in a highly-rated Netflix miniseries.
