Buro 24/7 website editor-in-chief Miroslava Duma sparked outrage by publishing an interview with Garage magazine editor-in-chief Zhukova Dasha. A photo accompanying the interview shows Zhokova posing on a ‘black woman chair’. Zuma, who posted the image on her Instagram and Facebook pages, defended the photo as a work of art. But some are calling it ‘racist art’.
Sensitive art critics bristled at the fact that Zuma posted the image during the celebration of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday.
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube’s comedy film “Ride Along” landed in 1st place at the box office this weekend. “Ride Along” debuted with $41 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That was enough to make “Ride Along” the biggest opening during Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend. “Ride Along” is Hart’s first starring role since he appeared in a multitude of TV sitcoms and movies such as “Think Like a Man,” “Scary Movie 3 and 4,” and “Soul Plane.” He got his start on BET’s ComicView in 1992.
