Carole Baskin ripped Atlanta stars Sean Combs (left) and Pierre "Pee" Thomas (right) for posing with a caged tiger at the Black Tie Affair for the Quality Control Records CEO on Wednesday night.

Baskin slammed Combs and several other celebs for posing with the caged tiger at Atlanta's Fox Theater.

Baskin is a big-cat rights activist and CEO of Big Cat Rescue, a non-profit animal sanctuary based near Tampa.

She is best known for her appearance in Netflix's documentary series Tiger King about Oklahoma-based private zoo operator Joe Exotic.

Even though she wasn't invited to the party, Baskin claims there are signs that the animal was stressed inside the cage. She says it was a horrible scene for the big cat, according to TMZ.

Invited guests included Combs, Ray J, T.I. & Tiny, Gucci Mane and his wife Keyshia Ka'oir, Lil Baby, Teyana Taylor, 2 Chainz, Bow Wow, Jermaine Dupri, City Girls, and more.

Baskin says the white tiger looked stressed by all the noise and chaos -- that's why it's pacing and mouth breathing -- both signs the cat was not comfortable in the small cage.

Baskin couldn't fathom why folks would want to "demonstrate dominion over the world's most magnificent animal" at the party. She says it was clear exploitation and a slap in the face to mother nature.

Carole said the whole scene made partygoers look "impotent, clueless and cruel" to animals.

Baskin also wonders if the tiger was brought in illegally, and she's urging local authorities to investigate the party.

The Georgia Dept. of Natural Resources would have to issue a permit for the tiger to be displayed.

TMZ reached out to the GDNR, and also to Quality Control Music for comment.

NeNe Leakes is interviewing applicants for her new establishment, The Linnethia lounge near Atlanta, Georgia.

Linnethia Monique Leakes, who was let go from Real Housewives of Atlanta last year, is having trouble hiring staff for her new namesake lounge.

In her second job openings post on Instagram, she wrote:

The Linnethia Lounge now available for private events. Send info to thelinnethialounge@gmail.com. Walk in this FRIDAY April 23rd from 3pm to 6pm for "on the spot" interviews for Waiters, Waitress & Bartenders with lots of personality (we have something special in store for you) Oh and drinks on me! @thelinnethialounge #nightlife #loungeinduluth #lifeoftheleakes #nightlounge #duluthnights.

 

Not many people are eager to have NeNe for a boss.

One commenter on RhymeswithSnitch wrote:

"A person who has a horrible track record of speaking to people in derogatory ways is opening a lounge for the public to critique and post on social media. Can't wait for the sh*t show to happen."

NeNe is not the only sole proprietor having difficulty hiring employees. Most unemployed people refuse to work, thanks to unemployment benefits and stimulus checks from the government.

A McDonald's franchise owner in Florida offered to pay $50 to job applicants just to show up for a job interview.

Blake Casper, who owns 60 McDonald's in the Tampa area, blames unemployment benefits for making people lazy and unmotivated to find work.

Casper said it's a challenge getting people to sit down for an interview because most unemployed people earn more from the government than they do working minimum wage.

Unemployment benefits are set to expire in May and June for most people who haven't held a job since Covid peaked last year.

Jeezy took on Gucci Mane during a Verzuz battle on Thursday night, streamed live from Atlanta's legendary Magic City strip club. The after party took place at Compound nightclub.

Cellphone videos show young people enjoying their night out at the after party without face masks, as Covid-19 deaths continue to drop lower than the seasonal flu.

That didn't keep Black Twitter from criticizing Atlantans who are lucky to live in a wide open city, while the rest of the country is locked down.

CDC data shows young people (40 and under) are at the lowest risk for contracting the virus - even in close contact and without wearing masks.

Rap fans can't get enough of Atlanta rapper KashKash's hit song "Throat Babies". Young woman packed a Georgia nightclub to see KashKash perform his hit on Tuesday.

Clearly, Covid-19 is a thing of the past in Atlanta. There wasn't a face mask in the house, as rap fans sang along to every word of the raunchy song.

In case you don't understand mumble rapping, here is the chorus:

    Sexy lil' b*tch, sexy lil' ho*
    I love the way you walk, love the way you talk
    Let a young ni**a come play in your throat
    Deep stroke your throat ’til I make you choke
    Throat babies, I'm tryna give ‘em to you

You would never know there was a worldwide coronavirus pandemic if you're in Atlanta. It's business as usual at packed nightclubs and lounges in Atlanta.

Club promoters are making money hand over fist as Atlantans who are wary of being restricted to their homes go out for a night on the town.

All of my club promoter friends are doing brisk business at their establishments and venues. It's almost as if the coronavirus doesn't exist in the clubs in Atlanta.

No one wears face masks and social distancing is non-existent. It's actually good to see Black people enjoying themselves and socializing amongst their peers.
 

The CDC, Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates tried to strike fear into the hearts of people in the Black community, but so far, their fear tactics are not working.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms received glowing reviews for her efforts to contain the coronavirus in her city.

The mayor issued an executive order in June, mandating that people wear masks in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Gov. Brian Kemp, who refused to mandate face masks in the state, filed a federal lawsuit against Bottoms to prevent her from enforcing her mask mandate.

On Friday, the governor extended his order that explicitly bans local governments (including Keisha's) from enacting mask mandates.

Gov. Kemp believes adults should make their own decisions whether to wear PPE.

A hearing on the matter was delayed after two judges recused themselves from the case.

Calls to the mayor's office for comment were not returned on Friday.

Justin Combs (@princejdc) and his brothers, Christian Combs and Quincy Brown, hosted the Grand Opening of Memphis Smokehouse Saturdays, the all new indoor and outdoor venue on Saturday night in Atlanta.

Sean Combs' three sons held it down in the VIP, partying with their friends and Atlanta's local celebrities.
