Jon Gruden abruptly resigned Monday as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders after more offensive emails were reported.

Gruden told the team he was resigning on Monday after more offensive emails surfaced. In one email, Gruden reportedly referred to Joe Biden in 2012 as a "nervous clueless pu**y".

On Monday night, Gruden released a statement, saying:

"I have resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction. Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I'm sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone."

In a previously leaked email that was sent in 2011, Gruden said NFLPA President DeMaurice Smith had "lips the size of Michelin tires".

After the email leaked last week, Gruden apologized for his "insensitive remarks" about Smith. He claimed he was frustrated over the 2011 NFL lockout. He further explained that he often referred to "liars" as "rubber lips".

In other emails, Gruden allegedly used homophobic and sexist language to refer to Michael Sam, the first openly ghey NFL player, and female NFL officials.

The emails were sent between 2010 and 2012 and came to light as part of a workplace misconduct investigation into the Washington Football Team.

Gruden was in the fourth year of a 10-year, $100 million contract he signed with the Raiders in 2018.

He previously coached the Oakland Raiders from 1998-2001.

The entire Hudson School Board in Ohio must resign or face child porn charges over a sexual writing assignment given to students.

Hudson Mayor Craig Schubert announced his decision at a school board meeting on Monday, after students at Hudson High School were given sexually explicit writing assignments.

Students in the Liberal Arts II writing class were told to "write a sex scene you wouldn't show your mom," and "Describe your favorite part of a man's body using only verbs."

The students were also instructed to "Write an X-rated Disney scenario."

It isn't clear if the teacher who handed out the assignments must also resign or face criminal charges.

Red-faced Mayor Schubert spoke at a school board meeting, garnering loud applause from outraged parents who read the papers their children wrote.

Schubert told the school board he spoke with a judge who confirmed that the students' writings could be considered child pornography.

"It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom.

"I've spoken to a judge this evening and she's already confirmed that. So I'm going to give you a simple choice: either choose to resign from this board of education or you will be charged."

The mayor then stormed out of the room to loud applause from the angry parents.

The Hudson School Board members include one female and 5 males.

According to Dailymail.com, "Ohio law prohibits sending 'harmful' or obscene material to, or sharing it with, a minor, though this statute usually refers to sexting or sending obscene images."

Parent Monica Havens, a public school teacher for 11 years, told The Plain Dealer:

"I can't even wrap my brain around as a teacher, I don't care if it's for college credit, these are minors. When these topics are encouraged and read by adults, that is pedophilia.

"This is grooming, and all of you need to be replaced,' Havens told the school board. "You have dedicated yourself to woke social justice."

A New York hospital will stop delivering babies after half of its maternity workers resigned over the vaccine mandates.

Lewis County General Hospital will stop delivering babies after September 24 due to a nursing shortage.

Lewis County Health System Chief Executive Officer Gerald Cayer announced the resignations at a press conference on Friday.

Cayer said 6 of the nurses in the maternity unit quit and another 7 are undecided.

"If we can pause the service and now focus on recruiting nurses who are vaccinated, we will be able to reengage in delivering babies here in Lewis County."

ER Productions Limited

In August, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced all healthy care workers at hospitals and nursing homes would be required to get at least one dose of mRNA vaccine by September 27.

Cayer said 30 nurses got vaccinated, while another 30 nurses resigned over the mandates.

"Our hope is as we get closer (to the deadline), the numbers will increase of individuals who are vaccinated, fewer individuals will leave and maybe, with a little luck, some of those who have resigned will reconsider. We are not alone."

Cayer said other NY hospitals are struggling with nursing shortages.

"There are thousands of positions that are open north of the Thruway and now we have a challenge to work through, you know, with the vaccination mandate."

Mike Richards is out as the new "Jeopardy!" host after sexist comments he made on an old podcast resurfaced on the Internet.

Richards succeeded legendary Alex Trebek who hosted the quiz game show for 37 seasons until his death in 2020.

Richards, who is also executive producer of the show, won a Daytime Emmy as Executive Producer of The Price is Right in 2016.

Taping of "Jeopardy!" has been halted and previous guest hosts will be brought back to tape new shows.

He apologized profusely for the sexist jokes he made seven years ago. However, he stepped down on Friday after the backlash grew on social media.

Richards quit the show a day after The Anti-Defamation League demanded an investigation into past statements he made on an old podcast series.

In a statement, Richards said the backlash had created "too much of a distraction for our fans and not the right move for the show."

According to Variety.com, in the podcast, Richards had asked his female assistant and his female co-host if they had taken nude photos. In another episode, he called his co-host a "booth ho*."

"We support Mike's decision to step down as host," Sony Pictures TV said in a statement.

"We were surprised this week to learn of Mike's 2013/2014 podcast and the offensive language he used in the past. We have spoken with him about our concerns and our expectations moving forward."

Fans of Jeopardy! complained that their choices for host were overlooked for Richards.

Fan favorites for host included LeVar Burton, Katie Couric and Laura Coates.

The attorney general found that the governor "sexually harassed current and former New York state employees by engaging in unwelcome and non-consensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a sexually suggestive nature that created a hostile work environment for women."

Time's Up leader and attorney Roberta Kaplan also resigned in disgrace after she was exposed for her role in discrediting Cuomo's accusers.

Cuomo was heavily criticized for sending elderly Covid-19 patients to nursing homes where thousands of residents died during the pandemic in 2020.

Cuomo's brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, took a week-long unscheduled vacation amid reports that he advised his brother to deny any wrongdoing.

Chris Cuomo is host of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," a news program that regularly covers politics.

A Burger King signage went viral after a group of disgruntled Burger King employees walked off the job at the same time at a Lincoln, Nebraska location.

The former employees walked off the job and left a message on the Burger King sign announcing: "WE ALL QUIT. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE."

According to the former employees, they were upset over poor work conditions, low pay and long hours. They chose to collect unemployment which pays more than the minimum wage in Nebraska.

"They have gone through so many district managers since I've been GM," said former general manager Rachel Flores who was among the disgruntled workers that resigned. "No one has come to the store to help me out. They're so in and out."

Flores told reporters the sign was something they all came up with to inform customers that the restaurant was closed and "just kind of a laugh to upper management."

Burger King corporate office issued a statement to CNN:

"The work experience described at this location is not in Lin with our brand values. Our franchisee is looking into this situation to ensure this doesn't happen in the future."

Flores said she was surprised the sign went viral on social media.

"I didn't think anybody was going to notice it, because we did just one sign, and then it went pretty crazy on Facebook," she said. "I got a call from my upper management and they told me I needed to take it down."

Matt Hancock has resigned as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care after photos surfaced of him kissing his closest aide, Gina Coladangelo, pictured together in 2019.

Hancock, a member of the Conservative Party in England, was under pressure to resign after The Sun newspaper published pictures of him embracing and kissing Coladangelo.

The newspaper said the photos were taken inside the Department of Health on May 6. The photos show Hancock and Colandangelo locked in an intimate embrace and kissing passionately.

Ms. Coladangelo, pictured with Hancock in 2019, is married with three children.

Hancock's stoic wife, Martha, was spotted outside her north-west London home on June 24 after the scandalous photos were published. She was still wearing her wedding band.

Hancock's extramarital affair angered Britains, particularly since Hancock advised Prime Minister Boris Johnson to force Brits to socially distance and wear face masks.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen told BBC News it was not the affair that angered the public "but the hypocrisy of being someone who makes the rules and then broke the rules".

Hancock reportedly chose to resign and was not forced out of his position by the prime minister.

Ms. Coladangelo is also leaving her position as a non-executive director of the Department of Health. It is unclear if she was fired for fraternizing on the job.

Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, is stepping down amid allegations she misused donations.

BLMGNF announced Tuesday, May 27, that Cullors is stepping down from her role as the movement's executive director.

"With smart, experienced and committed people supporting the organization during this transition, I know that BLMGNF is in good hands," Cullors said in a statement. "The foundation's agenda remains the same — eradicate white supremacy and build life-affirming institutions."

Last month, Hawk Newsome, another BLM founder, called for an "independent" financial investigation into Cullors' spending after she made substantial real estate transactions with no apparent source of income.

Cullors owns a total of $3.2 million in real estate holdings.

Cullors bought a three-bedroom home in Topanga Canyon for $1.4 million. The home is located in an area with a Black population of just 1.8 percent.

The property is located about 20 miles from her childhood home in an "impoverished" area in Van Nuys, California.

Cullors purchased two other homes in Los Angeles, according to public records.

In 2017, she bought a house in Inglewood for $510,000. The property is now worth $800,000.

Cullors and her lesbian spouse Janaya Khan also purchased a home in Atlanta, Georgia for $415,000.

Cullors previously complained that the criticism surrounding her real estate portfolio was an example of "white supremacy".

Sharon Osbourne called out her former co-host, Sheryl Underwood, for saying she didn't reach out to apologize after their argument on "The Talk."

The 68-year-old British TV presenter clashed with Underwood, 57, during an episode of the CBS talk show on March 10. Osbourne defended her friend Piers Morgan against allegations of racism after he criticized Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey.

CBS announced "The Talk" was going on hiatus and launched an investigation after Osbourne and Underwood clashed on the set.

Osbourne was reportedly paid "up to $10 million" to walk away from the show in March. CBS stated Osbourne "did not align with our values for a respectful workplace".

Osbourne apologized to Underwood and the show's viewers on Twitter.com in March. However, Underwood claims Osbourne didn't reach out to her personally to apologize.

Underwood went through her phone history as proof that Osbourne didn't get in touch.

Osbourne hit back by insisting she'd sent several text messages to Underwood.

"(I) not only sent these messages to Sheryl but I apologized to her in person in her dressing room," she told London's DailyMail.com.

Osbourne accused Underwood of deliberately attempting to blacklist her in America.

"Why are you saying I never apologized, Sheryl? What are you trying to do to me? Why are you trying to destroy my reputation? Just be honest. Tell me."

Underwood then allowed the Daily Mail to publish the text messages. One message read:

"Sheryl, My heart is heavy and I'm deeply saddened by the events that transpired on Wednesday. I don't want to lose my true friend over this. I'm sorry for telling you to f**k off during break, I'm sorry for accusing you of fake crying while we were live on air and I'm sorry for losing my temper with you."

The text continued:

"I felt shocked, scared and saddened by what felt like was a blind-sided attack. You know me. You know how I've always had your back. We've outlasted everyone on this show and that’s because we’ve always been a team and had each other's backs. I consider you a genuine friend. If you want to talk on the phone over the weekend I'm here. Once again from the bottom of my heart I'm sorry. Is there anything You need from me or that I can do to help you heal? Love and respect always — Sharon."

In another message sent on March 15, Osbourne wrote:

"Hi Sheryl. I know you're taking space and I don't want to disrespect that. I'm just reaching out because I want you (to) know I'm thinking about you. If you are willing, can we talk before Wednesday? Big kiss."

And her final text message, sent on March 18, read: "Sheryl I am thinking about you. Hope you are well. Sending my love."
