The illness causes starfish to develop lesions on their bodies. The disoriented starfish twist their arms into knots. The arms then crawl away and rip apart from the bodies causing the insides to spill out. Without arms the starfish die within 24 hours. And, unlike most starfish, the arms don't regenerate.

Beyonce and Jay Z claim to be taking part in a 22-day vegan diet, which many believe is just another publicity stunt designed to generate headlines. Case in point: the paparazzi snapped photos of Beyonce wearing leather and fur while entering two separate vegan restaurants on the west coast.
Even the most uninformed vegan wouldn't wear clothing made from animal skin or eat food containing animal products.
But attracting attention -- while appearing to be ignorant of the circumstances of her actions -- is what Beyonce does best.
Jacoby Cash, an animal lover, was so enraged that she wrote Beyonce a terse note on her Instagram page: "Asshole move going into a vegan restaurant in a fur. You've lost a fan."
Hollywood power couple Beyonce and Jay Z have decided to "go green" by giving up meat and dairy (eggs, milk, etc.) for 22 days. Jay Z made the announcement in a post on his personal blog.

Jay Z says he was inspired to go green when a good friend challenged him to go vegan a few months back.

Jenkins, who is in nursing school, told Mail Online she picked up the receipt and saw the words "none" and "nigger" scrawled on it.
So she did what any other attention-seeker would do: she posted the receipt on her Facebook page.

"She said there's a situation where one of our customers feels threatened by your party, so she asked us not to seat you in our section, which totally alarmed all of us because we're sitting there peaceably for two hours," explains Brown. "Obviously, if we were causing any conflict, we would have been ejected out of the place hours before."

Celebrity chef Paula Deen has been fired from the Food Network after she admitted using racial slurs in a videotaped deposition.
Earlier today, Deen released an apology video pleading for forgiveness from her fans. In the video she seemed bewildered -- as if trying to read from cue cards. That video was removed from Deen's website and replaced with an even stranger video this afternoon.
Celebrity chef Paula Deen is reeling from the backlash to her admission that she routinely calls black people "niggers." In a video released by her camp today, Deen says: "I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I've done." Looking somewhat befuddled, she continues: "I want to learn and grow from this. Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable. I've made plenty of mistakes along the way, but I beg you, my children, my team, my fans, my partners, I beg for your forgiveness. Please forgive me for the mistakes that I've made."
Update: According to published reports, Food Network has fired Paula Deen.
