In dozens of videos uploaded to the Internet, Scott looked on as paramedics performed CPR on unresponsive young people.

He continued performing for another 40 minutes while kids as young as 14 were loaded into ambulances. He reportedly encouraged concertgoers to make "the ground shake" as bodies lay at their feet.

Scott claims he didn't know what was happening, but there is video evidence that he was at least aware that something was wrong.

The crowd repeatedly chanted "Stop the show!" In one video, Scott says, "Who asked me to stop?"

The 29-year-old rapper has a troubling history of violence and injuries at his concerts.

He was arrested in Chicago in 2015 and again in Arkansas in 2017 for urging fans to storm the stage and inciting a riot in the mosh pit that left a security guard and concertgoers injured.

In 2017, Scott was sued by a fan who was paralyzed after the rapper urged people to jump off a balcony at a concert in New York.

Kyle Green's lawyers say the deaths in Houston could have been avoided if Scott had learned his lesson in the past.
 
In a video posted on Reddit.com, Scott urged his fans to beat up a young man who stole one of his sneakers.
 

 
In a video uploaded to social media on Saturday, Scott shows no remorse as he claims to care about the well-being of his fans.
 

 

What is a High-Functioning Sociopath?

A sociopath is someone over 18 who exhibits antisocial behaviors, has little regard for others, and a disturbing lack of conscience.

They may be diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) as adults or conduct disorder as children.

They engage in risky behaviors that typically harm others for the benefit of themselves. They often lie, cheat, are manipulative, and show no remorse for their behavior.

According to Healthline.com, people who have an easier time engaging in these dishonest behaviors may be called high-functioning sociopaths.

Sociopaths harm others and pretend to show remorse only when they are caught or in trouble.

Sociopaths typically break rules or make impulsive decisions without feeling compassion or empathy for others.

Sociopaths only care about the outcome of their behavior, not the consequences.

Sociopaths will urge someone to jump off a roof because they want to see the outcome: injuries. They only consider the consequences afterwards -- and only if they get into trouble.

A reasonable person would expect serious injury or death if someone jumped off a roof or a balcony.

Sociopaths have a "callous indifference" or disregard for the pain and suffering of others.

 

Signs and Symptoms of Antisocial Behavior in Sociopaths:

Sociopaths exhibit behaviors that show a pattern of at least three of the following:

  • Never learning from their mistakes
  • No respect for social norms or laws; Constantly break rules
  • Lie and deceive others for personal gain
  • Exhibit risky behavior without considering the consequences
  • Aggressive or aggravated behavior
  • Don't consider the safety of others
  • Irresponsible; often late for appointments or not paying their bills on time
  • Lack of guilt or remorse when they harm or mistreat others
  • A sense of superiority over others
  • Inability to maintain longterm relationships
  • Taking risks at the expense of others
  • Getting into trouble with the law
  • Addiction to drugs or alcohol
  • Threatening suicide without ever acting on the threats

NeNe Leakes called out a former co-worker for selfishly using her for their personal gain. The mom-of-two made the comment on Twitter.com on Friday.

"Have you ever worked with a sociopath who used you for their personal gain to achieve what they want for themselves."

She followed up with, "You see there's something wrong, You know something is wrong but you do nothing to stop it. Why? Do you lack empathy?"

Some of NeNe's followers guessed she was calling out Andy Cohen, who previously worked as a producer for Bravo before stepping down.

As you know, a sociopath is a mentally and emotionally unstable person who suffers from antisocial personality disorder or narcissism.

Many sociopaths are socially likable people who tend to be charming, handsome and regarded highly by their peers.

But they lack empathy for others, and they can be manipulative and deceitful. A sociopath is a backstabber who smiles in your face while twisting the knife.

The entertainment industry is full of sociopaths and narcissists. Some would say NeNe herself is a narcissist who uses others for her own selfish needs.

Question: Who do you think NeNe is referring to?

Antonio Brown's agent has filed paperwork with the NFL player's association to cut ties with the troubled wide receiver until he seeks psychological help.

Sports agent Drew Rosenhaus filed the documents to terminate his representation of Brown after the 31-year-old Florida native live-streamed himself screaming profanity at his baby mama, Chelsie Kyriss, and police officers outside his Hollywood, Florida home.

The video was the latest in a string of self-destructive incidents that prompted his release from two NFL teams in 3 months.

Rosenhaus's withdrawal as Brown's agent doesn't become official for five days, according to ESPN.

Rosenhaus informed the NFLPA that he would like to continue working with Brown but only if Brown seeks psychological help for his behavioral problems.

Brown has been unemployed since he was let go by the New England Patriots after just one game after a woman accused him of rape in September.

Brown was accused or rape, sexual assault and sending threatening text messages. He has denied the allegations.

He was also accused of encouraging violence against a Sports Illustrated reporter who published an interview with one of Brown's accusers.

The Game Fights for His Right to Sag His Pants

Rapper The Game is speaking out against a New Jersey ban that prohibits sagging pants on the world famous boardwalk. The law bans the wearing of pants that sag 3 inches below the hips, exposing skin or underwear.

But Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, is outraged by the anti-sagging law which he compares to slavery.

Like most rappers, The Game is blissfully ignorant to the fact that most decent citizens do not want to see the color and brand of underwear he has on.

Boston Marathon looters

The headline on the front page of MSN's NOW website reads: "Are these people looting after the Boston bombings?" Isn't it funny how the media approaches the despicable subject of looting differently when the looters are of a different race? If the people seen in this news footage ripping open boxes and walking away with armfuls of jackets and blankets aren't looting, what are they doing? Listen to the news reporters describing the looting as "picking up" jackets and blankets.

"In the post-tragedy spirit of focusing on the best of humanity, we'd like to think they’re not actually stealing," MSN NOW writes, as they pull the wool further over their eyes. The fact that the shameless thieves are looting while injured people writhe in agony just yards away from them makes their actions even more contemptible.
