Grown men recoiled at the sight of St. Louis draftee Michael Sam licking cake icing off the lips of his boyfriend, Vito Cammissano. Only seconds before “the kiss”, these same men cheered St. Louis for having the courage to draft Sam with its 249th pick in the NFL draft on Saturday. 31 other teams had bypassed the SEC Defensive Player of the Year who was projected as a mid- to late round draft pick.
ESPN taped Sam’s reaction and aired the tape immediately after his draft pick was announced. Social media’s reaction to “the kiss” was wildly mixed. Some applauded the NFL, St. Louis and Sam for their courage. While others — including professional and college football players — expressed their distaste with ESPN for repeatedly showing “the kiss” on air. Many believed ESPN went too far.
Hollywood power couple Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith have a hands-off approach in raising their precocious children, Jaden and Willow Smith. Eyebrows were raised when 12-year-old Willow appeared in a music video with a grown man as his love interest.
And yesterday, an inappropriate photo surfaced online showing the now 13-year-old relaxing in bed with a 20-year-old man — presumably her boyfriend — basking in an apparent post-coital glow.
NBA superstar Kobe Bryant is in hot water for comments he made to the New Yorker magazine about slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.
Kobe seemed to sympathize with the teen’s killer, George Zimmerman, when he used Trayvon as an analogy to explain his belief that American blacks choose their battles based on skin color rather than studying the merits of a situation before reacting irrationally.
Struggling singer Beyonce provided more evidence that she is an unfit mother. The 34-year-old burlesque dancer updated her Tumblr page with an inappropriate photo of her 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy flipping her middle finger at the camera.
Before you say BIC is just a baby — her mother should have known better than to post this indecent photo of her child. Apparently she thinks it’s amusing to exploit her minor child for attention.
Studio singer Beyonce may have sunk to new lows by taking selfies inside the revered Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam. Frank died of pneumonia at age 15 in a German concentration camp where she and her family were taken after their hiding place in Mr. Frank’s shop was discovered by the Nazis during World War II.
Tiffany Austin (pictured above) wanted to get back into shape after recovering from a recent car accident. So she joined a local gym after her doctor told her it was time to walk more.
But Austin says she felt “intimidated and harassed” after her first day at Planet Fitness in Richmond.
The reason? The gym staff told Austin her toned bod was intimidating to the other members.
