Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Allegedly Involved In An Altercation With An 18 Year Old Man

Kanye West is back in the news after he allegedly attacked a 18-year-old man who reportedly hurled racial slurs at him, his baby mama Kim Kardashian, and the paparazzi.

The incident happened on Monday when Kanye dropped off Kim at a chiropractor’s office in Beverly Hills, CA. The man walked into a doctor’s office with Kim and began mouthing off to her about the paparazzi.

According to INFphoto.com:

The conversation turned sour when the man began using racial epithets about the paparazzi, then Kim and Kanye. According to celebrity news website TMZ: “Kim claims the man then started to hurl epithets to Kim about the paparazzi, calling them “n****s” and “fa****s” Kim says she then called him out for using the word and then he turned on her, calling her an “n****r lover.” At that point Kim called Kanye on his cell — he was nearby — and the guy apparently knew Kanye was listening and he called the rapper a “n****r.” Reportedly Kanye raced to the scene and allegedly assaulted the man.

Riley Cooper

A sports blogger says suspended Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper will never suit up in a NFL uniform again. Cooper, 25, is still feeling the fallout from that N-bomb he dropped during a Kenny Chesney concert last week.

Jay Graves of Baarbershopsports.net theorizes that Cooper is done in the NFL because the balance of power flows from the locker room not from the Philadelphia Eagles front office.

Riley Cooper suspended

This Riley Cooper story has gone from laughable to ludicrous. The 25-year-old Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was drunk when he used a racial slur at a country music concert. Cooper spazzed out at a black security guard who wouldn’t let him backstage to meet Kenny Chesney. “I’ll fight every nigger in here,” Cooper said.

Normally when a redneck drops the n-word in a room full of rednecks, no one raises an eyebrow. But a concertgoer captured Riley’s tirade on a cell phone and uploaded it to YouTube.

The response from the professional football league was swift. Cooper was fined an undisclosed sum of money, and he was forced to apologize more than once.

But that wasn’t enough. In a tweet posted today, the Eagles front office announced that Cooper will be suspended from “all team activities” so he can “seek counseling.”

Riley Cooper

Unlike disgraced chef Paula Deen, a Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was caught using the n-word on video. Riley Cooper, who heretofore was unknown outside of Philadelphia, was upset that a black security guard wouldn’t let him backstage at a Kenny Chesney concert.

A concertgoer who witnessed the 25-year-old Riley’s public meltdown sent this email to Deadspin.com:

Riley was going fucking nuts because he wasn’t allowed backstage. He didn’t have passes like some of the other players and was SO pissed that the stadium people wouldn’t let him back just because he was Riley Cooper.

He had had been drinking since 11 AM (Kenny didn’t go on until 8).
Feel free to use the attached pic of his car.

Paula Deen support from black celebs

Actress Stacey Dash, NFL player Kris Jenkins and civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton are among the black notables who have come forward in support of embattled tv chef Paula Deen.

Deen, 66, was dropped by the Food Network on Friday after Deen readily admitted she used racial slurs and cracked racist jokes about black people in a videotaped deposition.

Two other Deen sponsors, QVC and Smithfield Foods, are quietly shelving the celebrity chef while they await the outcome of a million-dollar sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Deen’s brother, Bubba Hiers, by a former employee.

Paula Deen Apology

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.
