Agents raided the North Hollywood home of Netflix actor Siaka Massaquoi (right) who participated in the "Stop the Steal" protest rally in Washington, DC in January.

Massaquoi was photographed among the Trump supporters protesting the 2020 presidential election in the nation's capitol on January 6, 2021.

Nearly two dozen armed agents raided Massaquoi's home, terrorizing the actor and his friends just before 6 a.m. on Friday, the L.A. Times reports.

42-year-old Brian Burks and his two minor children were in the home at the time of the raid.

Burks' ex-wife, Luvelle Mendoza, told the Times that her ex-husband was "briefly detained" by agents. She said her two sons, ages three and seven, were also in the home when the agents stormed in with semi-automatic rifles.

"My heart breaks," said Mendoza who worries about the mental trauma to her young boys. "They had to see the big guns and I just think, I wasn't there to console them."

The Times reports that both men are under investigation for their comments on a social media app.

Massaquoi is best known for his roles in "S.W.A.T." and "NCIS: Los Angeles." He attended political rallies in support of former President Donald Trump in 2020. And he participated in the movement to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat.

On his Instagram account, Massaqoui, a registered Republican, said he was within his constitutional rights to protest -- just as Black Lives Matter and Antifa protested by looting and burning down courthouses and police stations last summer.

"I did nothing wrong on the 6th... did nothing violent," Massaquoi wrote on IG.

Former president Barack Obama responded indirectly to leaked text messages that reveal Hunter Biden is comfortable using a racial slur among his friends.

In a new interview with Anderson Cooper, Obama praised his daughters, Sasha, left, and Malia, right, for their personal views on "cancel culture," saying his girls don't expect everyone to be perfect.

"[T]hey have a pretty good sense of 'Look, we don't expect everybody to be perfect. We don't expect everybody to be politically correct all the time, but we are going to call out institutions or individuals if they are being cruel.'"

Some social media users suggest Obama knew the texts would leak, and he was getting ahead of the scandal by rationalizing Hunter's behavior as imperfect.

"If @DonaldJTrumpJr had just ONE text like this, the media mob would be enraged!!! Where is the #cancelculture," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user wrote: "Imagine if this were Don Jr.

The overload of outrage would break Twitter."

Exclusive emails obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Hunter Biden used the N-word in multiple text messages to his white attorney, George Mesires.

The U.S. president's son dropped the N-word multiple times in text messages to his own lawyer -- who didn't object to the word.

In a December 2018 text exchange, Hunter, 51, wrote, "How much money do I owe you. Becaause [sic] ni**a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates."

In another text exchange with his attorney, Hunter wrote: "And I only love you because you're black."

His attorney replied: "It's so annoying when you interject with frivolity."

Hunter responded: "True dat ni**a."

So far, Mesires has not commented on the brewing scandal publicly.

As of Wednesday, only Fox News, Yahoo News, the Washington Examiner and the NY Post had covered Hunter's text message scandal.

Twitter user and conservative journalist Benny (@bennyjohnson) wrote:

"Weird how everyone who screamed about 'racism' & 'white supremacy' for the last 4 years are completely *silent* about member of the First Family Hunter Biden using the N-word multiple times along with racist stereotypes & memes.

Isn't this what you have been waiting for?"

Exclusive emails obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Hunter Biden is very comfortable using the N-word among his white friends.

The U.S. president's son dropped the N-word multiple times in text messages to his own lawyer -- who didn't object to the word.

In a December 2018 text exchange, Hunter, 51, wrote, "How much money do I owe you. Becaause [sic] ni**a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates."

In another text exchange with his attorney, who is Caucasian, Hunter wrote: "And I only love you because you're black."

His attorney replied: "It's so annoying when you interject with frivolity."

Hunter responded: "True dat ni**a."

The text exchange was recovered from a laptop confirmed to belong to Hunter.

Also on the laptop was a meme of former President Barack Obama embracing his then-vice president Biden. Obama is pictured with Joe and Hunter in a photo dated January 30, 2010.

The meme reads: "Obama: Gonna miss you, man Joe: Can I say it? Just this once? Obama: *sigh* go ahead Joe: You my n***a, Barack"

The texts emerged just days after Hunter's father, Joe Biden gave a speech on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre in Oklahoma.

As the texts went viral on Tuesday, many on social media said Hunter Biden is "cool," and they see no problem with his use of the N-word.

One DailyMail.com reader wrote:

"All the Mail readers cry themselves to sleep every night because Biden whooped their boy in the election and his son is cool."

The story was barely covered by the majority Democrat news media in America.

Major websites such as the BBC, New York Times, Bloomberg News, The Guardian, Reddit, and the Disqus commenting platform were hit by a massive Internet outage ovrnight.

The Internet outage affected Amazon.com and Fastly.com, which provide updated news content to many websites.

The BBC and United Kingdom's government page, were temporarily down during a massive outage early Tuesday, NBC News reported.

Social media users took to Twitter.com early Tuesday to say most of the websites they normally visit were down.

Fastly.com, an American cloud services provider, issued an update on its status page at about 5:58 a.m. ET., saying the "issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented."

It isn't clear if the websites were hit by a Russian cyberattack.

The global outage comes a day after the U.S. Department of Justice announced it had recovered most of the cryptocurrency ransom paid to a criminal hacker group that hit Atlanta-based Colonial pipeline, causing gas prices to surge nationwide in mid-May.

The DOJ used "sophisticated technology" to recover $2.3 million of the $4.4 million in Bitcoins paid to the Russian-based Darkside hacker group that compromised Colonial's IT system.

Colonial paid the ransom to the hacker group within 48 hours after the cyberhack in May.

JBS meat processing company was also hit by ransomware, resulting in the shutdown of all of its North American meat packing plants earlier this month.

"The sophisticated use of technology to hold businesses and even whole cities hostage for profit is decidedly a 21st century challenge," said U.S. attorney general Lisa Monaco, during a press conference on Monday afternoon. "Today we turned the tables on DarkSide."

West Virginia is giving away rifles, shotguns and Ford F-150 pickup trucks to motivate residents to get the experimental Covid mRNA injections.

According to published reports, about 40% of the state's residents have received the mRNA vaccine. Only 33% are fully vaccinated.

West Virginia plans to offer prizes, such as cash, including a $1 million jackpot, F-150 trucks, shotguns, AR-15 rifles, and other perks if residents roll up their sleeves.

Gov. Jim Justice previously offered free Shake Shack fries and measly million-dollar lotteries to boost vaccine participation. But, so far, it hasn't worked.

"I said it before, but I can't stand to have Ohio get ahead of us on anything," he said. "There are going to be so many wonderful prizes that you can win, it will blow you away."

According to the CDC, as of Wednesday, nearly 51% of adults in the U.S. had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 41% were fully vaccinated.

West Virginia ranks 43rd of the U.S. states in vaccinations. Neighboring Ohio ranks 32nd.

Joe Biden sparked outrage on Black Twitter when he suggested Black business owners would be as successful as white entrepreneurs if they had lawyers and accountants.

The president made the comments during a press conference in Tulsa, OK, where he spoke at the 100-year anniversary of the Black Wall Street race riot.

Biden said young black entrepreneurs are "just as capable of succeeding given the chance as white entrepreneurs are, but they don't have lawyers, they don't have accountants."

As usual, Biden's remarks about the Black community drew confusion and dismay on social media.

Conservative commentator @KatiePavlich tweeted: "Wait until Joe Biden finds out black people are lawyers and accountants."

Another Twitter user said, Black people don't know how to get IDs and they can't get lawyers or accountants.

And a third user wrote, "If you have an accountant, you ain't Black!"

Actress Ellie Kemper, best known for her role in the TV series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," was once crowned queen at a KKK ball.

Kemper, 41, starred in the TV series from 2015 to 2019. She played a woman who is rescued from a doomsday cult and begins a new life in New York City. The series also starred comics Tina Fey and Tituss Burgess (pictured above with Kemper).

A photo showing then-teenage Kemper being named queen of the Veiled Prophet Ball in St. Louis prompted accusations of white supremacy.

The photo was published by the Post-Dispatch newspaper in 1999. The photo caption reads: "Elizabeth Claire Kemper, as the 1999 Veiled Prophet Queen of Love and Beauty, is attended by her pages."

According to the NY Post's Page Six, "The Veiled Prophet is said to be dressed with a white klan-style hood and robe while armed with a pistol and rifle."

Another Post-Dispatch article described Kemper as a 19-year-old freshman student at Princeton University.

A Twitter user posted the newspaper image along with the caption: "So was no one gonna tell me Ellie kemper aka kimmy Schmidt was crowned KKK queen in 1999."

Film critic Jon Negroni tweeted:

"it really is something that Ellie Kemper was the star of a tv show about a woman who leaves a racist cult and tries to rebrand herself while pretending it never happened. no reason why I’m bringing this up of course,” film critic Jon Negroni tweeted."
