Brianna Hamblin has a problem most women would envy: she is blessed with striking beauty and light eyes that make her irresistible to men.

Hamblin's beauty is a blessing and a curse. She complains that she is constantly getting hit on by men at work in the field.

Hamblin is a reporter for Spectrum Local News in Rochester, NY, formerly CBS19.

Despite not dressing provocatively, and not wearing too much makeup, Hamblin is constantly getting hit on.

She took to Twitter to explain her dilemma:

"Being hit on and harassed as a woman, especially as a woman reporter out in the field, happens so often you learn how to roll with it or ignore it. This time it happened to be recorded only seconds before my hit. There are A LOT of things wrong with this."

The video, which includes profanity, is going viral on Twitter.

Hamblin gets cat calls from men even though her cameraman, Scott Barstow, is standing right there.

Scott empathized with Hamblin.

Black Americans expressed their frustration on social media after House Speaker agreed with Pres. Joe Biden saying "the Latino community is the future of America."

Pelosi made the statement during her weekly press conference on Thursday, July 22.

"Well, you want to talk politics? Yeah, obviously the Latino community is the future of America," Pelosi said. She then praised the congressional Hispanic caucus for going door-to-door to get out the vote for Biden in the presidential election.

Black Twitter was not happy.

One Twitter user wrote:

"Thank you to the Hispanic Caucus for proving to me that Latino issues take precedence over Black issues in America."

Another user tweeted:

"Damn. Talk about benign neglect. Shameful. Yet they depend on Blacks to get them in office. We are now relegated to 4th class citizenship."

And a third person wrote:

"They have to since Latinos don't blindly vote for them 90% every election. They have to work for they're votes so they are. Meanwhile they don't have to do anything for the Black vote."

No one could believe it at first: Shaun King deleted his Twitter after weeks of brutal taunting by Black Twitter.

King announced he was deleting his Twitter app to spend time with his family.

But his followers claim he is on the run because he's in trouble with the law.

King was accused of raising funds for Black men killed by white police, but the money never made it to the victim's families.

Then Samaria Rice, the mother of Tamir Rice, dragged King and reminded him of his Caucasian bloodline.

Tamir is the 12-year-old Cleveland boy who was shot and killed by police for playing with a toy gun in 2014.

Rice slammed King for using her dead son's name to enrich himself.

"Personally I don't understand how you sleep at night," she said. "I never gave you permission to raise nothing."

She added: "As a white man acting black you are an imposter that can not be trusted."

Rice's allegations opened the door for Black Twitter to drag King up and down his timeline. The comments were brutal, and King deleted his Twitter account a few weeks later.

Check out some of the responses below:

"You're OK. You're not going to – you're not going to get Covid if you have these vaccinations... If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the ICU unit, and you're not going to die."

According to reports, 99% of all patients currently hospitalized with Covid are unvaccinated.

But the percentage of "breakthrough" cases among the fully vaccinated is rising.

WSB-TV news anchor Fred Blankenship and his entire family contracted Covid-19 despite being fully vaccinated and quarantining.

The well-liked Atlanta newsman suffered difficulty breathing and a temporary loss of taste and smell. He announced his symptoms in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

"Breakthrough positives as they are known are very real," he wrote. "I thought because I was fully vaccinated the symptoms would be mild. They were not."

However, Blankenship said despite his symptoms, his doctor told him it could've been a lot worse if he had not gotten the vaccine.

"My doctor told me the fact that I got the vaccination and stayed in relatively good shape kept me out of the hospital. It's been a big reminder that health is the true wealth."

San Francisco is replacing its much loathed green garbage bins with sleek new Gucci designer trash cans.

The prototype Gucci trash cans are part of San Francisco's new pilot program to dress up city streets.

Residents and lawmakers are outraged that the stylish trash cans cost $12,000 to $20,000 EACH.

San Francisco Public Works approved spending $537,000 to $840,000 on reserve for the pilot program, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"$20,000 a can is ridiculous," Supervisor Matt Haney told the San Francisco Chronicle after reluctantly approving the proposal.

The pilot program will install 15 designer trash cans on city streets from November 2021 to January 2022, according to the Chronicle.

Among the Gucci styles are "smart" cans called "Salt and Pepper", "Slim Silhouette" and "Soft Square." The latter is designed to resemble a man purse.

The Salt and Pepper trash can is designed to look like a salt and pepper shaker.

The edgy "smart" trash cans are "outfitted with sensors that send alerts when they're nearing capacity so they can be emptied before they overflow," San Francisco Public Works said in a release last year.

The city plans to increase police foot patrol to ensure no one steals the fashionable trash cans.

The same giddy women who helped catapult YouTuber Kevin Samuels to stardom now want him gone from the Internet.

Samuels - a self-described relationship expert - made a name for himself by making degrading comments about Black women.

Now his critics want him gone for galvanizing "men of all races and nationalities in the outspoken hatred of women."

Over 12,000 people signed a petition on Change.org calling for Samuels' removal from social media platforms.

The petition claims Samuels' rhetoric has inspired men to commit "Acts of violence, sexually predatory behavior and even death" against women.

"Women feel unsafe in the presence of men who identify with his ideology and have even been berated while going about their daily lives, (yes, even while at work), with criticisms that have been spoken directly from Mr. Samuels’ mouth. The very words that were spoken on social media platforms have permeated every facet of daily life for unsuspecting women."

A pit bull mauled a man like a chew toy when he climbed through a window in his family's New Orleans home. The fatal dog attack occurred at a residence on South Claiborne Avenue at 6:41 p.m. on Sunday.

New Orleans Police spokesman Juan Barnes said the 66-year-old man suffered deep lacerations on both arms and died of severe blood loss. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim was a relative of the family that resided in the home. The pit bull was the family pet.

The Louisiana SPCA took control of the dog as police continue the investigation.

Pit bulls are an aggressive breed that are trained to fight to the death. They kill by locking their massive jaws on the victim and shaking the victim like a rag doll.

The DailyMail.com reports there have been at least 11 fatal pit bull attacks so far this year, with 31 people killed by pit bulls in the first nine months of 2020. A majority of the victims were infants and toddlers.

Deion Sanders checked a white reporter for getting too personal and calling him "Deion".

Sanders, head coach at Jackson State, walked out of a Southwestern Athletic Conference media day event on Tuesday after reporter Nick Suss of The Clarion-Ledger called him "Deion".

The 53-year-old NFL legend told Suss that Alabama coach Nick Saban does not like to be referred to by his first name.

"Hold on, you don't call Nick Saban 'Nick', don't call me Deion... Treat me like Nick."

When the reporter insisted on calling Sanders by his first name, he walked out of the interview.

In a tweet, Sanders called The Clarion-Ledger "FOOLISH" for Suss' disrespectful conduct.

"This is how all of this started, I really Pray for all of us because this was something so minimal that was hilarious to me that you allowed a FOOLISH media outlet and person to play on your Preconceived notions. I'm all about Peace, Love, Work, Commitment, Sacrifice & Forgiveness."

NOI's Rizza Islam was targeted by the White House as one of 12 social media accounts behind 65% of the vaccine misinformation online.

Black Twitter reacted to NOI's ban on Tuesday.

One Twitter user wrote: "They used the vaccines to get to the NOI. NOI breaks no rules so they needed another way to ban them. Labeling disagreeing with the vaccines as dangerous was the perfect cover. This ain’t about those damn vaccines. White ppl don’t want them either. It was about getting the NOI."

Another user tweeted: "4 years of Donald Trump and there was no censorship. 6 months of Biden and look at this! So much for the lesser two evils."

And a third wrote: "But #WhiteSupremacists are untouched."
