A Missouri man was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat after he recorded himself licking personal hygiene items on a shelf in a Walmart store.

Cody Lee Pfister, 26, posted a video of himself licking a row of deodorants at the Warrenton Walmart on March 11. "Who's scared of coronavirus?" he asked as he licked the items.

Pfister was identified by outraged citizens and arrested on Monday, March 23.

The Warrenton Police Department announced the arrest on its Facebook page, saying police received calls from concerned local residents, as well as foreigners in the Netherlands, Ireland and the United Kingdom to report the video.

"We take this incident very seriously, especially with this infectious disease and the state that the country is in," Lt. Justin Unger told NBC News. "We take these things seriously to protect our community."

Pfister's attorney, Patrick J. Coyne, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his client's behavior was "immature" and "impulsive" and he shouldn't be treated like a criminal.

That "public conduct that was immature on March 10 looks completely different through the lens of today," Coyne said. "Everything has changed at warp sped, but that should not work retroactively and convert a tasteless and impulsive act into a criminal terrorist threat."

Pfister is being held in jail without bail. He appeared in court Wednesday and his next hearing is set for May.

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office said one of its deputies did not plant drugs on a Black suspect after a viral video sparked outrage on social media this week.

The video allegedly showed a sheriff's deputy planting evidence on a suspect during an arrest in Bridge City on Monday, March 16.

The video went viral after rapper Tip "T.I." Harris posted the clip on his Instagram page and told his 12 million followers:

"The Jefferson Parish PD planting crack on this Man... You should all be ashamed of yourselves,fired,& indicted!!! Listen to the pig at the end talking about "Your Phone Is Evidence!!!" Yeah you right... the evidence we need against YOU!!! Fuckin Dork!!!"

The video was viewed over 3 million times, leading to calls of police misconduct and threats of rioting.

But after an internal investigation, the JPSO determined the white baggie was indeed taken from the suspect's pocket, according to Nola.com.

During a press conference on Tuesday night, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joseph Lopinto said his department found no wrongdoing.

"The drugs that were on the scene were previously confiscated from the suspect's pocket before that video started to play," Lopinto said.

Lopinto thanked the suspect, Dominique Griffin, 26, of Bridge City, who admitted he was in possession of the drugs, which tested positive for crystal methamphetamine.

Griffin told investigators the deputy did not plant the baggie on him, according to Lopinto.

"He understands the gravity of the situation with the accusations that were being made," Lopinto said of Griffin.

Griffin was booked on two counts of drug possession.

DaBaby vigorously denies slapping multiple women at a nightclub in Tampa, Florida last weekend.

The law firm representing the alleged victim, Tyronesha Laws, claims she is the woman he slapped, but DaBaby's lawyer says "multiple victims" called the law office claiming to be the woman the rapper slapped.

As cell phone footage shows, DaBaby viciously slapped a woman who accidentally touched his face with her cell phone at the Whiskey North nightclub in Tampa, where the rapper was scheduled to perform last weekend.

Trouble is, the rapper admits slapping "someone," but he says too many alleged victims are coming out of the woodwork.

DaBaby's attorney, Drew Findling, tells TMZ, enhanced video shows DaBaby slapping a woman who struck his left eye with what appears to be a phone with the flashlight on -- NOT the person standing to the left or the right of the individual shoving the phone in his face.

Tyronesha told TMZ she was standing next to a young lady who reached out with a cell phone -- flashlight activated -- toward DaBaby right before he allegedly smacked her in the face.

Cell phone footage shows the troubled 28-year-old rapper slapping the person holding the phone -- but that person has not come forward.

Findling says his law firm has been contacted by multiple women claiming to be the victim, but they haven't been able to verify her identity.

DaBaby already apologized to the woman he struck, saying he thought he was hitting a guy in a wig and couldn't tell the difference because he was blinded by the light in his face.

After the slapping incident, DaBaby was booed off the stage and the show was immediately canceled by club promoters.

A viral video shows Biden getting into a heated confrontation with an auto worker while touring the Fiat Chrysler plant in Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday, March 10.

When the worker asked Biden to clarify whether he would take away union worker's guns, Biden told the man, "You're full of sh*t!"

Seeing that the confrontation would not end well for Biden, a female campaign aide tried to move him along. But Biden put his hand in her face and told the woman of color, "SHUSH! shush!"

Clearly his aide is used to being shushed and put in her place by her boss, who is showing signs of dementia.

One can only imagine the indignation and outrage coming from the left if President Trump told a woman to shush. Some in the mainstream media even suggested Biden, 77, was correct to silence his subordinate while he's talking.

The incident occurred hours before Biden pulled off major primary wins over Bernie Sanders in Missouri, Michigan and Mississippi on Tuesday night.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms again endorsed Biden, during a speech at a church in DeKalb County, Georgia on Sunday night.

Rapper DaBaby was booed off stage after he viciously slapped a female fan who accidentally touched his face with her cell phone.

The violent incident happened at the Whiskey North nightclub in Tampa, where the rapper was scheduled to perform over the weekend.

His show was immediately canceled by club promoters, who kept the other half of his appearance fee, according to reports.

Tyronesha Laws was recording DaBaby's arrival to the club when she inadvertently touched his face with her phone. Police were called to the scene, but no charges were filed.

DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, hauled off and slapped Laws, sending her cell phone flying into the crowd.

The Law firm of Morgan & Morgan, which is representing the victim, contacted gossip blog TMZ to confirm they are representing Laws in a possible lawsuit against the rapper and the club.

DaBaby offered a half-hearted apology in a video on his Instagram stories after he was booed off the stage.

DaBaby claimed he was blinded by the light from the phone and he couldn't see whether the fan was male or female. He offered to pay the fan $10,000 and to fly her anywhere to apologize to her in person.

"I do apologize that there was a female on the other end... keep in mind, I couldn't see you because you got the flash this close to me... I wish you could have respected me."

DaBaby, 28, was arrested in Miami in January for assaulting a concert promoter. He was released on bond when authorities discovered he had an outstanding warrant for assault in Texas.

He also assaulted a hotel worker and he was previously arrested for killing a 19-year-old man during an altercation in a Huntersville, North Carolina Walmart. The charges were dropped in March 2019 after he said he acted in self-defense.

NYPD

Police have 5 suspects in custody after a gang of nearly 20 boys savagely stomped and kicked a 15-year-old girl in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY on Thursday.

Shocking surveillance video shows the teen girl curled up in a fetal position on the ground while a pack of teens swarm her and begin stomping and kicking her.

The girl was rushed to a hospital, where she was treated for minor facial injuries and released.

Police are questioning the 5 boys who range in age from 14 to 16.

The violent assault was initially reported as a robbery. The victim allegedly lied when she told police the motive for the attack was robbery. The boys allegedly stole her cell phone and debit card.

One boy is seen in the video removing the girl's Air Jordan sneakers before fleeing.

The suspects, who turned themselves in on Friday, told investigators the brutal beat down was in retaliation for an earlier assault on a pregnant 14-year-old girl.

The 15-year-old girl and a cousin allegedly jumped the pregnant teenager earlier that day at school. The motive for the fight was not clear, but sources say the 14-year-old girl was impregnated by the victim's boyfriend, who is also 14.

Two of the boys seen attacking the 15-year-old in the video footage are brothers of the 14-year-old girl.

Police said the victim knew all of the boys involved in the beating. Their names and ages were not released and no charges have been filed, according to the NY Post.

Rapper Lil Boosie Badazz was kicked out of an Atlanta area Planet Fitness gym for his comments about retired NBA player Dwyane Wade's gender confused child, Zaya Wade.

Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, expressed his opinion about Wade's 12-year-old son, who goes by Zaya Wade and prefers the feminine pronouns she/her.

"Dwyane Wade, you have gone too f****** far. That is male... a 12-year-old. They don't know what they next meal gon’ be," Boosie said in a video rant. "They don't have sh*t figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his d*ck gone - how he gon' - like, bruh, you going too far, dawg. Don't address him as a woman, he's 12, dawg."

In a follow-up video on Thursday, the 37-year-old rapper filmed himself leaving a Planet Fitness after being ejected from the gym on Atlanta's southside.

Boosie lashed out at the gym manager for putting him out.

"Do not go to Planet Fitness, they racist, they haters," he said. "They just put me out Planet Fitness for what I said about Dwyane Wade son. And they said I said in a video one of they employees was a f****t or some shit. Don't go to Planet Fitness... They got roaches in that bitch."

Boosie captioned the video, "MANAGER WHO WAS GAY REFUSED TO LET ME N PLANET FITNESS BECAUSE OF MY PAST ACTIONS ON SOCIAL MEDIA ABOUT GENDER ETC. DO NOT SUPPORT PLANET FITNESS 'Hwy 138 Jonesboro rd' THEy Racist ,THEY HAVE ROACHES , N THEY SHOWER WATER DONT GET HOT!! GET OUT YA FEELINGS LIL BITCH..."

A Planet Fitness spokesman issued the following statement to 11 Alive News:

"Planet Fitness does not tolerate harassment or discrimination of any kind. In this instance, a guest was asked to leave after refusing to comply with gym policies and harassing club staff. We are the home of the Judgement Free Zone and as such, we have policies in place to ensure that we maintain a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for all of our members where everyone feels accepted."

Boosie's 16-year-old son (pictured) supported his father in an Instagram stories post, writing:

"F*ck Dwayne [sic] and his son, [I don't care if] he gay. My pops said what he said. Stop sending me that. I bet you won't say it to our face. I know this girl that will do sum thangs to DWade son that will make that boy back str8."

A case of Driving While Black has social media up in arms, after a cop interrogated a driver, then gave him a warning ticket for driving 5 miles under the posted speed limit.

The driver of a rental car wrote about his encounter with a Sampson County police officer last week. The officer cited the man for driving 65 MPH in a 70 MPH zone. The excuse the cop gave was that the motorist was driving suspiciously under the speed limit.

The man said the cop tailed him "for 10 minutes without committing one single traffic violation. No missed signal, no following too closely.”

The driver recorded the incident on his cell phone and uploaded the footage to Facebook.com.

"While it is ever so important to celebrate and uplift our heritage and progress in America with regard to racial disparities, we must always continue to challenge racial injustice, inequalities, and discrimination to show true honor to those that gave tirelessly to the cause both negro and other," he wrote.

The man said he manages several branches for his company, a job that requires him to "make use of these roadways for express transitions both to and from. However I do not feel safe nor comfortable after this obvious misuse of power. Civil servants must remember [their] primary function is to serve and protect, and this officer has clearly lost sight of what that truly is."

A video that shows a Black University of Virginia student asking white people to leave a campus center has gone viral.

In the video that surfaced Wednesday afternoon, a Black woman with Caucasian hair weave down to her butt made a "public service announcement", saying she was "uncomfortable" by "too many white people" in the Multicultural Student Center.

Claiming it is a "space for people of color," the woman urged all white people to leave the building.

"If y'all didn't know, this is the MSC, and frankly there's just too many white people in here," she shouted.

"This is a space for people of color. So just be really cognizant of the space you're taking up, because it does make some of us POC's (people of color) uncomfortable when we see too many white people in here. It's only been open for four days and frankly there's the whole university for a lot of y'all to be at and there's very few spaces for us. So keep that in mind. Thank you."

The video ends with a round of applause.

The video was originally tweeted by a student with the username WUF (@WafaFlofa_Flame), who referred to white students as "a bunch of infiltrators" before deleting her Twitter account.

WUF identified the Black woman as Twitter user Aunty Ezinne (@easily_ezzy), who delighted in the attention she received -- until she made her page private on Wednesday afternoon.

In screen captures by theCollegeFix.com, Aunty Ezinne tweeted: "Why did I smack my lips like that when I said white people" and "Y'all should have seen how quick the WHITE people packed their bags and left!"

She works hard for the money: a Dallas stripper who fell 20 feet while working a stripper pole, suffered a broken jaw, but she got up and kept twerking.

Cell phone video of the incident shows exotic dancer Genea Sky plunging 20 feet to the floor while working a pole at the XTC Cabaret strip club in Dallas.

Sky landed on her face on the stage while performing pole maneuvers for a packed house over the weekend. Even though she suffered a fractured jaw, Sky got up and continued twerking.

Sky thanked her fans after the video went viral.

"Originally I didn't plan on posting about this situation at all," she said in a YouTube video. "But obviously the video has gone viral and I'm getting a lot of messages asking me if I'm ok. I pretty much broke my jaw and I have to have surgery on it [on Monday]," she said. "Aside from that, I'm good."

A GoFundMe account set up by a friend to help pay Sky's medical bills has garnered nearly $19,000.

Boxer Gervonta Davis was arrested and charged with assault after he got rough with his baby mama during a celebrity basketball game in Miami.

The Coral Gables Police Department announced Davis's arrest on Tuesday, after a viral video showed the champion boxer snatching his baby mama, Andretta, by her neck during an argument and dragging her out of a gym. The couple was in Miami to attend the Super Bowl.

"As a result of an ongoing investigation after being notified through social media and the victim, on February 1, 2020, (Davis) was observed battering his former girlfriend (with) whom have a child together," Coral Gables police said in a statement to ESPN.

Prior to his arrest, Davis addressed the incident during an Instagram story, saying he didn't assault his baby mama - he simply corrected her when she talked back to him and showed out in public.

"I never once hit her, yeah, I was aggressive and told her come on.. that's the mother of my child. I would never hurt her," Davis said.

Davis is undefeated as a professional boxer.

An obese woman was saved by two strangers after falling through the ice in a lake says she is being fat shame after a video of her rescue went viral.

The video was uploaded to Facebook by the Macomb County Sheriff's Office. The incident happened on Jan. 27 at 3:20 p.m. Korisa Miller lost her footing and slipped off the dock into the freezing water.

Two fisherman saw her in the water calling for help, but they struggled to lift her out of the water.

Miller took to social media to complain about the comments under the video on Facebook. She wrote that some viewers should be "ashamed" of themselves for mocking her weight.

Some Facebook users mocked her because the men couldn't lift her into the boat because she is too heavy. They also criticized her for ice fishing with no clothes on.

"I know better than to go on the ice when it is not fully frozen over I am not stupid," Miller said. "I did have clothes on. I had a hoodie and a large winter coat on. When they tried pulling me up, my hoodie and coat was choking me so they had to rip it off of me. I did not go fishing in a tank top."

Wendy Williams does not have bubble guts, Okay? The 55-year-old talk show host denied reports that she farted on live television, insisting she would have laughed out loud if she had.

A clip of The Wendy Williams Show host went viral after fans were convinced they heard the TV guru passing gas while presenting her Hot Topics segment on January 17.

On Thursday's episode, Wendy addressed the speculation, saying she did not fart on live television.

She played the footage and told her audience: "I have never farted once on this show. As a matter of fact, I barely fart, you know why? Because gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching, because all I do is talk."

Wendy also explained why she prefers leaning on her chair armrest.

"Let me tell you something right now, okay? I don't lean over like this to release a fart, I lean over like this because it's comfortable. If I sit (straight up) all the time, it's heavy on my spine... I like to release my hips and lean, you know what I'm saying?... I've been doing this for 11 years on this show!"

She also told the audience that if she had broke wind on air, she wouldn't have been able to conceal her laughter.

"I would have definitely been laughing because farts are always funny. You know a girl like me would have been laughing at that!” she giggled.

The star also made reference to the wet noise heard in the video clip, adding, "By the sound of that fart, I would have had to go change my costume! I would have left a mark in the seat. I wouldn’t even save the costume, I would have thrown it away. It'd probably be soiled beyond soiled-tivity."

Wendy Show producer Norman Baker and stagehand John Anderson explained that the sound happened while setting up for a segment with scientific author Dr. Kate Biberdorf.

"We were filling up a fish tank backstage and we didn't have the proper hose. The air was just coming out and it was sputtering like someone was farting. Okay? So that's what it was. It wasn't Wendy!" Anderson confirmed.

Everyone has something they will gladly fight you for. T.I.'s middle son, King Harris, tells Complex.com he fought in a school bathroom over something near and dear to his heart: his family pride.

Photo by Prince Willams/ATLpics.net

A viral video shows the 15-year-old high schooler brawling with a boy in a bathroom while girls and boys looked on (maybe it was a unisex bathroom?)

The video shows King holding his own against the other boy. King walked into a hard right but he shook it off and proved he is his daddy's son.

"I can't tell you all that happened... basically... we fought," King tells Complex.com.

"This dude hit me one time, one time! It looked like he hit me a couple of times, but on God, you don't see nothing on my face. I still look light-skinned, no bruises, one bruise right here. That's all you see on me, no other bruises. Therefore, he hit me one time!"

So what was King fighting a kid over? King tells Complex the fight was over a Kodak Black Sniper Gang hoodie.

Kodak Black, who was transferred from a Miami prison to a facility in Kentucky, has beef with King's father, rapper T.I. Harris, 39. Kodak is serving 46 months in prison on weapons possession charges.

King is T.I.'s son with singer and reality TV personality Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 44.

A New Orleans judge initially declined to approve an arrest warrant for misdemeanor sexual battery against NFL star Odell Beckham Jr for butt slapping a cop.

The incident occurred during a post-game celebration in LSU's locker room after winning the national title at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana on Monday night.

When Beckham Jr. spotted an officer bending over, he couldn't help himself. He stared intently at the cop's buttocks before delivering a hard slap on the cop's butt.

According to AL.com, the police officer told LSU players they could not smoke cigars inside the locker room. But another officer allegedly told the players it was okay to smoke in the locker room.

Nola.com reports that a judge declined to approve the warrant because it was for misdemeanor sexual battery. The judge later approved an amended warrant for simple battery.

The judge's action prompted outrage on social media among #MenToo groups.

Police officers are outraged at the double standard for a celebrity football player. One officer wrote on Facebook: "If one of us butt slapped a female reporter, we would be fired!"

On Friday's episode of Atlanta's daytime talk show Sister Circle, co-host Rashan Ali, 2nd from left, argued that Beckham was being discriminated against because he is a star wide receiver.

Her co-hosts (L-R): Egypt Sherrod, Quad Webb and Trina Braxton agreed that a man touching another man's buttocks without consent is not a crime.

Yung Joc was clowned over the weekend when he was caught on video driving for a ride-share service. Joc went viral when Uber customers recorded him picking them up.

"You sound like somebody I know," one of the passengers said. Joc explained that he was driving for "a month or so" because "it was an easy way to get some easy money right here downtown."

Many assumed this was yet another stunt by Joc to go "viral." He doesn't need the few hundred dollars.

The 36-year-old business owner is a cast member on Love & Hip-Hop, as well as a co-host on a popular radio station here in Atlanta. All of which provides him with a tidy income to support his many children.

Behind the scenes, Joc caught flack for pulling more stunts in order to "go viral" on social media.

He isn't the only one. Many washed up celebrities hire PR firms to come up with stunts that have a high probability of going viral and increasing more "engagement" on social media.

As an industry insider explained to me: "Going viral is this generation's currency."

But according to Joc, his Uber driving gig is no stunt for fleeting viral fame.

The former rapper told TMZ that he has been part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta for years, and he is leading by example.

"You show them what humility is and you're not too big to do the right thing by making an honest living," he said. "I think that's why a lot of kids - and even adults - go astray. Because they're too ashamed, they're too prideful to do something."

He said one of the perks of "going viral" was the support he received from people like OG rapper Snoop Dogg.

"The most phenomenal part of this experience from this going viral is the amount of support," he said. "I just realize that maybe people are beginning to be a little more mature."

Speaking of maturity, it will be interesting to see what stunt Joc comes up with next.

A student who fought with a substitute teacher at a Miami high school faces criminal charges. The fight was captured on cell phone video and went viral online.

The incident happened on Monday, Jan. 13, at Miami Central High School in North Miami.

The video footage shows the substitute teacher and the aggressive student brawling in a classroom as other students record the chaos on their cell phones.

The teacher, who has short hair, traded punches with the unidentified student before putting her in a headlock. The student trapped the teacher against a desk then body-slammed her to the floor.

A male student pushed the girl off the teacher and held her down while the teacher climbed atop the girl and pinned her to the floor. The video doesn't show what sparked the fight.

A Miami-Dade Public School spokesperson said the student was not supposed to be in the classroom.

"All indicators point to the student having been the aggressor," said Daisy Gonzalez-Diego, chief communications officer for MDCPS, in an emailed statement to Bradenton.com.

"This is a regrettable and isolated incident between a student and a teacher, who otherwise maintained an amicable relationship. The Miami-Dade Schools Police Department continues to investigate this unfortunate matter," Gonzalez-Diego said. "It is evident the employee used great restraint in her attempts to de-escalate the situation."

The teacher will not be disciplined.

Two men were hailed as heroes for rescuing a scantily dressed woman from a mob of men who had wicked intentions for her.

The video shows why most women in the Middle East don't tempt men by dressing conservatively in layers of clothing from head to toe.

The undated incident occurred in Mansoura, Egypt, according to Worldstarhiphop.com. The woman was dressed in a mini skirt and cropped jacket. This type of Western attire is a no-no in Muslim cultures.

The woman screamed in terror as a mob of men - who aren't used to seeing scantily dressed women - surrounded her and began to grope her. Some of the men even jumped on top of the car trying to get at her.

Two brave men pushed through the frenzied mob and led the woman to the safety of a waiting car.

A 48-year-old man who was arrested for trying to abduct a drug-addicted woman off a subway train in The Bronx is giving his side of the story.

Sonny Alloway was arrested after a viral video showed him picking up a homeless woman and dragging her off the No. 6 train at 2:30 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 30.

He was charged with unlawful imprisonment, a misdemeanor, and released.

The woman and a male friend, also homeless, were sleeping on the train to stay warm when the incident happened.

Cell phone video shows Alloway, who was seated across from them, tap the woman's leg and motion toward the door.

At the next stop, Alloway grabbed the frail woman and carried her off the train, as she yelled for help.

The woman and her friends spotted Alloway on the street the next day, and the mob delivered some street justice before the police were called.

In a new video released on New Year's Day, Alloway gives his side of the story. He claims the woman is a "crackhead" who asked him to help her get away from her pimp.

Watch the video below. The second video shows the attempted abduction. In the 3rd video, Alloway is seen professing his affection for young girls.

Don Lemon nearly had a mental breakdown on the air, after President Donald Trump retweeted a video of himself as Thanos trolling House Democrats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced articles of impeachment against the president on Tuesday, alleging abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

In the video, Trump's face is Photoshopped on the body of Marvel Supervillain Thanos, who says, "I am inevitable".

Then a black dust cloud blows Pelosi and the other Democrats off the podium during their press conference.

The video left Don Lemon momentarily speechless and in disbelief. The CNN anchor was apparently furious that Trump took the articles of impeachment so lightly.

“Uh... what are we, in junior high school?" he stammered.

"What the hell. What is this? Like, what? WHAT?! I cannot believe that I'm even having to report this on the news!"

CNN viewers mocked the "drama queen" anchor for reporting the video as news in the first place.

"Slow news day, Don?" one Twitter user wrote.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden refuses to answer questions about an outdated racial term he used in a viral clip from a 2017 video.

The video clip shows Biden surrounded by Black women and children at a pool renaming ceremony in Wilmington, Delaware.

Biden regaled the crowd with a colorful story about the time he worked as a lifeguard at a desegregated swimming pool back in the day.

"By the way, you know, I sit on the stand, and it get[s] hot. I got a lot, I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun, and the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again. They'd look at it. So I learned about roaches. I learned about kids jumping on my lap. And I love kids jumping on my lap."

 

The video clip didn't generate interest in the mainstream news media. But Black Twitter questioned what the 77-year-old Democratic candidate meant when he uttered the term "roaches" while surrounded by Black children.

Many questioned the timing of the video clip, which resurfaced online after former President Barack Obama made it clear that Biden is not his choice for the Democratic nominee.

Biden doesn't bond with voters, Obama allegedly said during a meeting with presidential hopefuls in his D.C. office earlier this year.

Famed radio host and attorney Larry Elder wondered aloud in a rhetorical tweet, "And if @realDonaldTrump referred to blacks kid as "ROACHES"? [sic].

Biden's history of insensitive racial remarks continues to plague his campaign, already hobbled by his son Hunter Biden's inconvenient comedy of errors.

During his early days in the U.S. Senate, Biden was strongly opposed to busing to desegregate schools. He warned busing would lead to a "racial jungle."

California Senator Kamala Harris, who dropped out of the 2020 presidential race last week, confronted Biden during a tense Democratic primary debate in June.

"I do not believe you are a racist," she said, as she criticized his praise for staunch segregationists like Senators James Eastland and Herman Talmadge.

"But it was hurtful to hear you talk [about] the reputations of two United States Senators who built their reputations and career on segregation of race in this country."

"And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing. And you know, there was a little girl in California who was a part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me."

Joe Biden has a sordid reputation for inappropriately touching minor children over the years. A video clip of Biden rambling on about children rubbing his hairy legs went viral on the Internet over the weekend.

In the video, Biden addresses a group of Black women and children on the campaign trail in Wilmington, N.C. He discussed the time he worked as a lifeguard at a desegregated swimming pool.

The video clip first made the rounds back in September, according to The Blaze. If the video is taken down before you get a chance to watch it, here is what he said.

"And by the way, you know I sit on the stand and it'd get hot. I got hairy legs that... turn blonde in the sun. The kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and watch the hair come back up again. They'd look at it. So I learned about roaches. I learned about kids jumping on my lap. And I love kids jumping on my lap."

Supporters say the video was taken out of context. The "roach" comment was in reference to something someone said earlier about roaches.

A white man was chased by an angry mob, beaten and robbed of his spicy chicken sandwich after he went on a profane rant inside a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurant.

Online activist Tariq Nasheed posted a video that showed a white man shouting the N-word inside a Popeyes restaurant. The man was apparently upset after waiting in a long line for his food.

As the man walked outside the restaurant, he was set upon by an angry mob who beat him bloody and robbed him of his chicken sandwich.

This is the type of incident Popeyes had hoped to avoid when they pulled the chicken sandwiches out of stores after a series of violent incidents around the country earlier this year.

When Popeyes brought back the popular sandwich on Sunday, Nov. 3, the incidents of violence began anew.

One man was stabbed to death and social media users uploaded videos showing fights and other violent incidents inside and outside the restaurants. But Popeyes wasn't concerned.

According to Fox News, the corporation asked its customers to "show some patience and love each other as much as it loves the restaurant."

A spokesman told Fox Business the company had no plans to remove the sandwiches from stores again.

"The Chicken Sandwich came back on Sunday and will be available for the long term," a Popeyes spokesperson said in a statement to Fox Business on Wednesday.

"We love our fans and know they love us — we're asking everyone to share that love with each other and be understanding as the team works hard to get the sandwich back in every one of our guests’ hands."

Eric Yaverbaum, head of Ericho Communications, told Fox Business the incidents didn't mean a public relations disaster for Popeyes. He said the fights "just showcase poor decision making by specific Popeyes customers."

A homeless opera singer who was discovered by the LAPD while singing in a L.A. subway station has lost her recording contract. A LAPD officer recorded Emily Zamourka singing opera in an L.A. metro subway station.

The officer's cell phone video went viral, and offers poured in from music producers and record label execs. Zamourka, a talented former opera singer and violinist, told reporters she was a Russian immigrant who fell on hard times and ended up homeless. She said she played the violin on the streets of Los Angeles to earn money.

Zamourka was offered a recording contract from two-time grammy-winning producer Joel Diamond. Corky Hale, a music industry veteran, offered to replace her $10,000 violin that was reportedly stolen a few months ago.

Unfortunately this rags-to-riches story did not have a happy ending.

Diamond has withdrawn his recording contract offer to the singer, The Blast reports. Zamourka never signed the contract.

Diamond said Zamourka refused to comply with contractual agreements to make appearances and to work with top flight producers and songwriters.

"Emily (Zamourka) has not responded to what I felt was the 'world on a silver platter' proven formula that has worked hugely successfully for me before. To say we are not on the same page artistically, would be an understatement," says Diamond.

"In addition, she did not even want to listen to a song that I personally requested for her from one of the most successful songwriters in the world, Diane Warren," he said.

Zamourka also declined offers to replace her stolen violin. Diamond says she "turned down multiple free violins from well-known musicians to replace her stolen one."

Homeless people are notorious for rejecting offers of help returning to the rat race.

A routine shoplifting trip to a Family Dollar store ended with the termination of one of the Phoenix officers who responded to the scene.

Iesha Harper, 24, and Dravon Ames, 22, took their daughters - ages 1 and 4 - to the Family Dollar on May 27.

After leaving the store with items they didn't pay for, the couple complained that the police pulled their car over and pointed guns in their faces.

The store employees had called the cops, saying they believed the family stole items from the store. A worker had observed the 4-year-old girl leaving the store with a doll.

Cell phone video shows the cops pointing guns at the family and ordering them out of their car. The video quickly went viral, and social media activists went nuts. The drama escalated because the family was Black and the cops were Caucasian.

On Tuesday, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said one of the cops, Officer Christopher Meyer, was notified of his termination.

A disciplinary review board had recommended he receive a 6-week suspension, but Williams, who is Black, said the punishment was "not sufficient to reverse the adverse effects on our department and our community."

"I expect more. You deserve more," she said, according to the NY Daily News. "Unlike other professions, we don't have a luxury of a do-over."

Harper, who was five months pregnant at the time of the incident, approved of Meyer's firing - although she said she had hoped both officers would lose their jobs.

"I think I might be able to get a good night's rest for once knowing that he's fired, and it won't happen to no one else," she said. "I think it's a step in the right direction."

The second officer seen in the video received a reprimand for using foul language.

The family filed a $10 million lawsuit against the city.

A television commercial is causing mass confusion among young people who apparently missed or misunderstood the ad's tagline at the end.

The commercial opens with a pre-teen boy telling his father, "I think I got my period." The next scene shows a man rolling over in bed to reveal a bloodstain on the sheet under him.

The commercial also shows men dealing with their periods in public restrooms and locker rooms. One man asks another man for a Tampon, and a high school boy nervously drops his pantyliners in front of a girl, who asks him if he needs her help.

The commercial caused confusion among young people on social media who questioned how boys and men can menstruate.

Many missed the ad's tagline at the end of the commercial - 'If we all had them, maybe we'd be more comfortable with them.'

But even those who read the tagline were baffled. Since when are we women ashamed of having periods?

Some viewers believe the people behind the commercial are men who assume women are ashamed of having periods.

"We're on a mission to empower every body [sic] with innovative solutions and social change," the company states.

The company's Twitter page promotes their undergarments under the hashtag #IfWeAllHadPeriods.

Working moms everywhere can relate to a NBC news correspondent who vent viral on social media after her son interrupted her live report on Syria.

NBC News correspondent Courtney Kube was live on the air reporting on the conflict in Syria on Wednesday when her son wandered over and demanded her attention.

Kube, who covers national security and the Pentagon, was discussing Turkey's incursion into Syria from the NBC News studios in Washington, D.C. when her 4-year-old son interrupted her.

"Excuse me... my Kids are here. Live television," Kube laughed while simultaneously pushing her son away.

Kube later explained that her kids were dropped off in the studio from preschool and, "Breaking news in Syria didn't line up with preschool drop-off, so he and his twin brother were with me."

Hopefully Kube's boss has a good sense of humor.
