Meek Mill tucked his tail between his legs and apologized to Kobe Bryant's widow, Vanessa Bryant, for disrespecting them both.

He offered his sincere apology in private on Tuesday morning, after furious Kobe fans dragged him all over social media for telling the grieving widow, "I'm going back savage in this s**t ... f#%k ya feelings!"

"I apologized to her in private earlier today not to the public," Meek tweeted Tuesday. "Nothing I say on my page directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman!"

The 33-year-old rapper begged fans to move on: "If you care about someone grieving change the subject!"

Vanessa lashed out at Meek on Monday after he dropped Kobe's name in "extremely insensitive" lyrics in a leaked track, titled "Don't Worry (RIP Kobe)."

The lyrics pertained to the tragic helicopter crash that claimed the lives of Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and 7 others in January 2020.

In the song, Meek says:

"This b**ch I'm f**king' always tell me that she love me. But she ain't ever showed me. Yeah, and if I ever lack, I'm goin' out with my chopper It be another Kobe."

A "chopper" is street slang for a fully automatic AK-47.

Vanessa, 38, called Meek out on social media and urged the 33-year-old rapper to "do better".

She wrote on her Instagram Story:

"Dear @meekmill, I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period. I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this.

"If you are a fan, fine, there's a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact."

Senator Ted Cruz is returning to Texas after a massive outcry on social media in reaction to photos of Cruz and his family jetting to Cancun this week.

4.4 million Texans are still without power or water after 5 days, thanks to frozen turbines and a bungled response by the state's power company.

"Keep your family safe, and just stay home and hug your kids," Cruz reportedly told Texans a day before he and his family jetted to sunny Cancun for a relaxing vacation.

"If you can stay home, don't go out on the roads, don't risk the ice," he told radio host Joe Paglialuro on Tuesday.

He also tweeted: "Stay safe! Please don't risk the ice."

A day later, a sharp-eyed taxpayer spotted the congressman waiting in a standby line at Houston airport to upgrade to business class where there is more leg room to stretch out on the plane.

Cruz requested a police escort through the airport on Wednesday around 4 p.m. He and his family were pictured at the United Airlines Lounge, and on the plane before departure.

Less than 24 hours later, Cruz hightailed it back to Texas after a furious public backlash.

He tweeted on Wednesday: "I got no defense. A blizzard strikes Texas & our state shuts down. Not good. Stay safe!"

He previously attacked the Biden administration's plan to take California’s energy policy and rolling power outages nationwide:

"California is now unable to perform even basic functions of civilization, like having reliable electricity. Biden/Harris/AOC want to make CA's failed energy policy the standard nationwide. Hope you don't like air conditioning!"

An emergency medicine doctor in New York sparked fury on social media when he called the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines "reparations for Black people."

Dr. Steven McDonald is a board-certified emergency medicine attending physician at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

His credentials make him uniquely qualified to comment on Covid-19 vaccines. But he angered social media users when he said Black people should consider the vaccines as "reparations" for 200 years of slavery.

"You can think of the vaccines almost as medical reparations," he told VICE. "It's the 40 acres and a mule, um, but of 2021. So we really should be giving this vaccine preferentially to people of color..."

Doctors and globalists have repeatedly claimed that Blacks and Hispanics are "disproportionately affected" by the coronavirus.

The reaction was swift.

Social media activist Tariq Nasheed tweeted: "So, now vaccines are reparations?"

A Twitter user wrote: "By that logic, the Tuskegee Experiment is “reparations.""

"These people are insane," wrote an Instagram user. "Cut us our checks & we'll do what we need to do for ourselves."

Another commenter wrote: "I just reached out to [Dr. McDonald] to understand his rationale behind that statement. Let's see if he replies. Crazy times we live in."

Meanwhile, the White House on Wednesday announced yet another "study" on reparations for people of color.

A Utah charter school is catching heat for allowing Caucasian parents to opt their children out of Black History Month lessons. February is Black History Month in America.

Maria Montessori Academy Director Micah Hirokawa issued a statement, saying he "reluctantly" sent a letter to parents informing them that they are able "to exercise their civil rights to not participate in Black History Month at the school."

Hirokawa expressed disappointment in the parents’ decision not to participate in lessons related to Black history, saying, "We should not shield our children from the history of our Nation, the mistreatment of its African American citizens, and the bravery of civil rights leaders, but should educate them about it." It was noted that of the 322 students who are enrolled at the school, only three students are Black.

By comparison, parents who object to schools teaching their children gender equality and LGBT+ classes are not able to opt their children out of the classes due to former President Barack Obama's executive orders that made the classes part of the mandatory health curriculum in public schools.

Since facing public backlash, the Utah school has reportedly reversed its decision, saying parents can no longer opt their children out of Black History Month lessons.

An outspoken emergency room doctor with a large following on social media made headlines when he wished death on Americans who choose to live their lives without fear.

On Feb. 3, Dr. Gilman reacted to a viral video that shows maskless shoppers in a Florida grocery store.

In a now-deleted tweet, Gilman wrote: "Naples, Florida. Let 'em die. I'm so tired of these people. No vaccine for y'all."

In a follow-up tweet, he wrote: "I'm working in the COVID ICU tonight! I'm so tired of giving 200% while others in the U.S. can’t even help by simply wearing a mask!"

When outraged Twitter followers reminded him that his impulsiveness got him fired from a hospital in Arizona, he blamed Republicans and walked back his statement.

"Republicans trying to take my words out of context as if I deny medical care to people that don't wear masks & 'let 'em die. My point is that we can't waste our energy on these COVID deniers. [They] are not gonna protect themselves so let 'em die. They'll find out the hard way."

On Nov. 22, Dr. Gilman was fired for lying about the lack of ICU beds in the state of Arizona.

Gilman tweeted that there were "no more ICU beds in the state of Arizona."

But Gov. Doug Ducey and the Department of Health disputed his tweet by confirming there were over 100 ICU beds available in the state that same day.

Gilman's tweets made him a celebrity on Twitter. He received a Zoom call from Joe Biden's transition team and Oprah Winfrey offered to send him and his family on vacation.

But others were not as tolerant of Gilman's attention-seeking tweets.

Envision, the agency that contracts him to work temporary assignments in hospitals, told him his services were no longer needed at Yuma Medical Center in Arizona.

When Gilman tweeted that he was "fired" from his temporary assignment, the hospital said it was all a "misunderstanding" and that he still worked shifts there.

But Gilman told a reporter that he was on the schedule to work but he had not been permitted to work his scheduled shifts.

"I was told by Envision that the hospital was not allowing me to return back due to a tweet," he said.

The hospital quietly told Envision that Gilman would not be allowed to "be vocal or outspoken" on social media.

André Leon Talley praised Vogue magazine's controversial cover featuring Senator Kamala Harris'.

The Afro-Indian vice president-elect is pictured smiling apprehensively with her hands clasped in front of her on the February 2021 issue. Instead of the glam look, she is clad in casual work clothes and black Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers.

The controversial "working girl" cover sparked fury on social media, with many saying the cover was "disrespectful" and even racist.

But Talley, a former editor-at-large for American Vogue, supported his former boss, Anna Wintour, in a lengthy Instagram post on Tuesday.

"It's GREAT. JUST GREAT. GREAT," he wrote, after Wintour responded to the backlash in a statement on Tuesday. Talley said the cover will inspire young women around the world to wear work clothes rather than expensive designer clothing.

"Her work uniform with her ubiquitous Converse sneakers is aspirational. I predict its [sic] going to set a trend for all young women all over the world, [who] are going to dress like Kamala Harris," he wrote.

Talley, 71, defended 26-year-old aspiring photographer Tyler Mitchell -- the first Black photographer to shoot a cover for American Vogue in the magazine's history.

Talley said Mitchell's layman photography "comes from a universe that is new. He is not aligned with the titans of @vogue photographers before him... His work must be seen through the prism of 2021."

Harris' frantic staffers contacted Vogue editors on Monday after the cover leaked over the weekend. They demanded to know why Vogue chose a "test photo" for its print edition rather than the agreed upon photo of Harris wearing a powder blue pantsuit. The latter photo was chosen for the online digital edition instead.

There were calls for Wintour to step down, but Talley said she isn't going anywhere.

"All I can say is Anna Wintour is not abdicating. And I wish I was there, at Vogue, to celebrate w/the team," he wrote.

A viral video that shows rapper Wiz Khalifa sharing an intimate father-son moment has sparked debate on social media.

The video shows the 33-year-old "Black and Yellow" rap star kissing his 7-year-old son, Sebastian, on the mouth.

The response to the kiss was largely negative, as many said the boy is too old to kiss his father.

An Instagram user left this comment under the original video source:

"[W]ho in the rightful mind kiss their son in the mouth especially a guy that sh*t is nasty. all you're doing is pushing the agenda more to the public eye and telling kids it's okay to kiss men in the mouth when it's not some of ya are f***ing sick asf ya need jesus fr [sic]."

But not everyone agreed with the judgmental folks.

"Y'all are strange. He kissed his son good morning for like a second," wrote one Instagram user.

Another user wrote: "I don't see anything wrong with it. It was a little peck, They took this way out of context. Yes these peoples are extraaaa, but, that's social media for you! Smh."

And a third wrote: "There was nothing wrong with this interaction... A father showing love to his son. I'm sorry that all young boys can't receive this kind of love from their fathers. Maybe we'd have less toxic men if we normalized farthers showing affection to their sons. IJS."

Sebastian is Khalifa's son with Instagram model and entrepreneur Amber Rose, 37.

An Instagram search for Wright's name reveals the message: "Sorry, this page isn't available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed. Go back to Instagram."

And a search on Twitter brings users to a page which states: "This account doesn't exist. Try searching for another."

Trey Songz is accused of scamming his OnlyFans subscribers to fatten his pockets.

The 36-year-old singer is the latest washed-up celebrity to launch an OnlyFans account to make ends meet until the economy rebounds.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch, disgruntled OnlyFans subscribers claim he charged them $100 for a photo of himself in a shower with a female's hand around his neck.

His fans are upset because they wanted to see more. His body wasn't even soapy. One fan wrote: "Trey Songz charged his OF subscribers $100 for this pic. djdndsksks worms for brains!"

Celebrities are going broke amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Paid bookings and club appearances are drying up as clubs and other businesses are forced to close down.

Fans don't mind paying for OnlyFans content, as long as the content is risqué and NSFW. They say a photo of Trey from the chest up is not worth $100 or any price.

Question: Would you pay $100 for a picture of Trey Songz?

Keith Olbermann apologized Tuesday for calling President Donald Trump "a whiny little Kunta Kinte."

The former MSNBC host made the remark during a Twitter rant, referencing the fictional slave from the 1976 novel Roots.

"Yes @realDonaldTrump has always been, will always be, and on the day of his bid for re-election, still is: a whiny little Kunta Kinte," Olbermann tweeted.

Olbermann was reacting to Trump's interview on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday morning.

According to Dictionary.com, Kunta Kinte is a derogatory name for an African refugee.

Olbermann -- who clearly didn't know who Kunta Kinte was -- apologized in a follow-up tweet.

"Just logged back in: I apologize for my previous subtweet of this. I was using an old 70's-80's technique for calling somebody a c**t without writing/saying c**t, just using a sound-alike to call Trump a c**t Deleting previous, largely because this one clarifies the c**t part," Olbermann wrote."

WENN/Avalon

His "apology" prompted a response from actor LeVar Burton who played Kunta Kinte in the Roots TV mini-series.

But the fierce backlash from Black & white Twitter continued.

Journalist Tim Pool tweeted, "Keith Olbermann is a racist."
