In a video showing Von'Du's arrest, the star who is in full drag, said the victim's white "privilege" did not extend to his apartment.

"I am being arrested for defending myself in my apartment! As a Black man in this city, I am being arrested for defending myself IN. MY. APART-MENT! And just because his ass got beat up because he would not leave when I asked five times, I am being arrested!"

Von'Du, who does not identify as a male-to-female transgender, was forced to remove his drag makeup and bouffant wig for his mugshot.

Von'Du was released from jail after posting 10% of a $50,000 bond and is currently on house arrest. The reality star is due back in court on June 7.

Madonna nearly broke the Internet when she shared an Instagram video of her son David Banda wearing a dress around their sprawling mansion on Sunday.

Madonna, 62, captioned the video, "Confidence is everything."

The 15-year-old modeled the ankle-length white designer dress, which featured black hand-painted letters by @mae_couture, as he sashayed from room-to-room.

The teenager said, "I low-key like wearing... like, it's so freeing, you know what I mean?"

Madonna's celebrity friends praised David enthusiastically in the comments section.

"Omg I Love him. Look out @naomi," wrote Debi Mazur, comparing the teen to the middle-aged supermodel.

Madonna is also mom to daughter Lourdes Leon, 24, son Rocco Ritchie, 20, daughter Mercy James, 15, and 8-year-old twins Stella and Estere whom she adopted from Malawi. Madonna adopted David from Malawi in 2006.

In a previous interview, Madonna named David as her favorite child. She seemed to suggest that David loved playing in her closet and trying on his mom's feminine things.

"What he has more than anything is focus and determination," she told British Vogue in 2019.

"I'm pretty sure he got it from me. He's the one I have the most in common with. I feel like he gets me; he has more of my DNA than any of my children so far. Let's see what happens – it's still early days for everyone."

Rumor has it that David's brother, Rocco, moved to London to live with his father to get away from his mother's influence.

When Rocco (pictured left) was 16, he took to Instagram to say that he is "so glad" he doesn't live with his mother anymore.

He made the comment after Madonna posted a video of herself, David, then-11, and Mercy, then-10, participating in a viral mannequin challenge.

"So glad I don't live there anymore," Rocco wrote.

Billy Porter clapped back at critics who object to his appearance on the children's educational TV series Sesame Street.

Porter lashed out at social media users who argue that there are some things children should not be exposed to - and a man in drag is one of those things.

Social media users expressed their outrage after Porter announced he'll be appearing on the show in the dress he wore to last year's Oscar Awards.

The Pose actor, who is a vocal member of the LGBT+ community, is renowned for his flamboyant style and red carpet attire, which includes dresses and feathers - lots of feathers.

Porter, 50, will wear the black Christian Siriano tuxedo gown on an upcoming episode of the popular children's show later this year.

Critics, including the state senator of Arkansas, Jason Rapert, tore into Porter on Facebook, asking "Do you approve of your taxpayer dollars being used to promote the radical LGBTQ agenda?"

Rapert called for the end of taxpayer support for Sesame Street, a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) series which critics say has become a progressive child-indoctrination program.

A petition circulated to have the episode pulled and even accused the program of trying to "sexualize children using drag queens."

The Broadway star clapped back in a chat with the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, insisting: "If you don't like it, don't watch it."

Adding that it's unusual to make the mental leap from his dress to "perverted demon sex," he continued: "Like, what about me singing with a penguin (puppet, on the show) has anything to do with what I'm doing in my bedroom?"

"The really interesting thing for me is that that's what it's all about when it comes to LGBTQ people — the first thing everyone wants to talk about is how we having sex."

Porter concluded: "Stay out of my bedroom and you will be fine — that is none of your business."

But critics point the finger of blame at the LGBT+ community's highly sexualized and sexually immoral behavior during public spectacles such as Pride parades.

Kevin Clash, Sesame Street puppeteer and longtime voice of beloved puppet Elmo, resigned in 2012 at age 50, after several young men came forward and accused him of sexual misconduct when they were teenagers.

Filmmaker J.J. Abrams, left, praised geriatric actor Billy Dee Williams after the 82-year-old spoke openly about being gender fluid.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, Williams, who first appeared in the Star Wars franchise in 1980 movie The Empire Strikes Back, explained that he uses both male and female pronouns when referring to himself.

"I'm a very soft person. I'm not afraid to show that side of myself," Williams said. "I never tried to be anything except myself. I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn't take himself or herself too seriously."

"And you see I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine," he added.

Speaking with entertainment TV show Extra, Abrams, who directs the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in which Williams reprises his role as Lando Calrissian, celebrated the actor as the "absolute greatest".

"I think, honestly, that comment and whatever he meant by it, it speaks to his openness," Abrams gushed. "He has such an amazing life experience and he is such a wonderful guy to talk to in-between takes because he will just start referencing relationships he's had with these legends in music and film and dance and theater."

Abrams added: "No one has a smile like Billy Dee and to have him, to get to work with him at all, has been such a joy. He is just the sweetest."

But not everyone is happy about the actor's revelation. Many of his elderly female fans believe the actor is going senile. They wish he had taken his secret to the grave with him.

Younger Black women complain that Hollywood is turning eligible straight men against them by offering juicy movie roles and other perks to actors who come out as homosexual or trans.
