Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris feels betrayed by the LGBT+ community after facing backlash for defending fellow rapper DaBaby's anti-ghey comments.

T.I. spoke out about the growing campaign to cancel DaBaby following his anti-HIV rant during his set at Rolling Loud in Miami on Sunday.

In an Instagram live video, T.I. expressed his frustration with the LGBT+ community for attacking DaBaby's artistic expression onstage.

"Everyone up in arms and upset about what DaBaby said. I understand people saying that they feel that it's insensitive. I think you guys have to understand that on stage, that's not the place that rappers go to be sensitive and soothe everybody's feelings. It's a place to go to have a good time."

T.I. stressed that he was once an ally of the LGBT+ community who are now "bullying" him and DaBaby for practicing their freedom of speech.

"Why do words cause such a visceral reaction that will lead to someone trying to attack, villainize, demonize, crucify, condemn and like, it's, that sh*t is like, now you bullying. We all stood up on behalf of gays and lesbians and people in the gay community because we thought it was some bullsh*t for y'all to have to be bullied.

But I don't think any of us did that to feel like you would now have the authority to come and bully us."

Michael Costello says Chrissy Teigen's online bullying left him depressed and suicidal.

Costello, 38, issued a statement accusing Teigen of spreading fake photos and racist rumors about him on social media in 2014.

The Fashion designer is best known for his appearance on the eighth season of Project Runway.

Costello's accusations came hours after Teigen apologized a second time for cyberbullying Courtney Stodden and others.

"I didn't want to do this, but I can not be happy until I speak my mind," he wrote in a lengthy post on Instagram.

"I need to heal and in order for me to do that I must reveal what I've been going through. I wanted to kill myself and I still am traumatized, depressed, and have thoughts of suicide."

He continued:

"When I reached out to Chrissy Teigen to communicate that I was the victim of a vindictive cyber slander and that everything she thought I was is not who I am, she told me that my career was over and that all my doors will be shut from there on."

Costello also shared screenshots of DMs he sent Teigen begging her to stop saying he called someone a racial slur.

However, fashion designer Maxie James accused Costello of calling her a "Black ni**er b*tch" when they bumped into each other in a fabric store.

James also admitted she nearly "whooped his a**" and almost went to jail.

"Whew one thing about that karma boy! it aaaaalways finds its way back around! even if it’s 7 years later! Michael Costello got the nerve to be playing victim of being bullied, but called his self bullying 7 years ago and called me a Black N****r B*** in a fabric store downtown. He had the wrong one tho cus I most certainly whooped his a** and almost went to jail too. Thank GOD for his mercy us I seriously LOST IT. I never experienced racism before. All I knew to do was FIGHT."

Chrissy Teigen issued a lengthy new apology, vowing to do better after she was canceled for bullying young women on social media.

With her world crumbling around her, the 35-year-old Sagittarius issued a lengthy apology for her bad behavior in an essay published on Medium on Monday.

Teigen said she has grown up in the "very humbling few weeks" since she was canceled.

"Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven't felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I've said in the past," she wrote.

She said she thought it was "cool" to bully celebrities, and she believed she needed to "impress strangers to be accepted."

In addition to saying she's ashamed of herself, the mom-of-three apologized to actress Courtney Stoddard and others she disrespected online.

She didn't name names publicly, but she said she is reaching out to everyone she dissed, including Stoddard, Lindsay Lohan, Farrah Abraham, and Quvenzhane Wallis.

"Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor. I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry."

Chrissy was recently dropped from a Netflix show due to the controversy, and she lost all of her corporate sponsors.

There is also a rumor that her husband, singer John Legend, is considering exiting the marriage.

Chrissy was previously canceled for her creepy, pedo tweets about small children.

Pete Davidson dissed former model Chrissy Teigen on this weekend's Saturday Night Live episode.

"If there's one good thing about the pandemic besides getting Chrissy Teigen out of our lives...," said Davidson, 27.

Chrissy Teigen, 35, lost major retail sponsors amid reports that she bullied Courtney Stodden and others online.

Bloomingdales pulled out of a deal with Teigen last week after she was accused of telling the then-16-year-old model to kill herself in private Twitter messages.

"(Chrissy) wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take 'a dirt nap' but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself," Stodden said. "Things like, 'I can't wait for you to die'."

Bloomingdale's is owned by the same parent company as Macy's, which pulled Teigen's cookware line earlier this week. Target and Walmart also dropped Teigen's cookware from their websites.

Teigen came under fire for allegedly sending toxic direct messages to teenagers on Twitter.com.

Davidson and many others are relieved Teigen is finally canceled -- this time for good.

Damian Lillard called out online trolls for poking fun at a viral photo of former teammate Caleb Swanigan.

The photo went viral because of Caleb's weight gain a year after he left the NBA. One Twitter user posted the photo along with the caption: "How the hell does one go from this to that in a year?????"

Damian took offense to the trolling. "If you're gonna post this shit with real concern then that's cool. But don't ask "how does one go from this to that", he's clearly having some real life issues."

Damian urged people to have sympathy because Caleb struggled with obesity issues his entire life. He weighed as much as 400 pounds as a child. And his father weighed 500 pounds at the time of his death when Caleb was only three years old.

Caleb, 24, was a Portland Trailblazer for two years until he was traded to the Sacramento Kings in 2019. He returned to Portland in early 2020 and is currently a free agent.

The image went viral after Caleb pleaded guilty to marijuana possession in an Indiana courtroom on Monday.

He was arrested on Dec. 23 by a Columbia City Police officer who smelled marijuana during a traffic stop in northern Indiana.

Police found 3.4 pounds of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $3,415 in cash inside his car.

Caleb was given a 180 day suspended sentence with two days time served.

The former Purdue University basketball standout was voted Mr. Basketball in 2015. He was affectionately called "Biggie" by his friends and family.

Chrissy Teigen has lost another retail sponsor amid reports that she bullied Courtney Stodden and others online.

Bloomingdales pulled out of a deal with Teigen after she was accused of telling the then-16-year-old model to kill herself in private Twitter messages.

An insider explained why the luxury department store chain Bloomingdales dropped out of signing a contract with Chrissy.

"They pretty much had it together... but had to cancel it," the source told Page Six.

26-year-old Courtney said Chrissy sent hateful messages on social media, both publicly and privately, when the model and Internet personality shot to fame in 2011 after marrying The Green Mile star Doug Hutchison.

"(Chrissy) wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take 'a dirt nap' but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself," Stodden said. "Things like, 'I can't wait for you to die'."

Chrissy did not deny the claims and instead apologized profusely, saying she feels "lucky" to be "held accountable" for her past trolling behavior.

"I'm mortified and sad at who I used to be," she said. "I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that... is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel... These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!"

Target, Walmart and Macy's have also dropped the scandal-plagued former model's cookware line.

Macy's has joined Target and other retailers distancing themselves from Chrissy Teigen days after she apologized for bullying teenagers online.

Teigen's cookware line was removed from Macy’s website after she apologized for telling Courtney Stodden to take a "dirt nap."

The troubled former model is also accused of telling teenagers and pre-teens to kill themselves in a series of old tweets.

Teigen's Cravings by Chrissy Teigen line — already dropped by Target — was marked "unavailable" on Macy's website early Sunday, according to The Sun newspaper. A message tells shoppers "We couldn't find a match for your search."

The cookware line appears to still be available at a huge markup on Walmart.com.

Teigen, who shares 2 children with singer John Legend — issued a groveling apology for her attacks on Stodden, who was 16 when Teigen urged her to kill herself in a direct message on Twitter.

"I was an insecure, attention seeking troll," Teigen admitted Wednesday.

"I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that... is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel," she wrote.

"I am so sorry I let you guys down," she told fans. "I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago."

Teigen was also dragged on Black Twitter for her apparent jealousy toward then-9-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis, who was nominated for an Oscar in 2013.

Writer Clarkisha Kent, who brought up the incident involving Wallis, wrote:

"Also apologize to Quvenzhané Wallis ... I hope this is the day when you realize that some things are connected with your own punishment and that it is not 'bizarre' to project your self-hatred onto others."

Holiday Inn's parent company has launched an investigation into a "shocking" viral video that shows a Black customer berating an autistic employee.

IHG hotels, which owns Holiday Inn, was disturbed by the video that was posted to Twitter.com on Sunday by Tariq Nasheed under the hashtag "Mayonnaise Meltdown."

"Why did you get mad and hit the compruter [sic]," the customer asked repeatedly.

The employee is seen punching himself in the face and hitting his head on a computer monitor after the customer pressed him about a reservation error.

"You've ruined my night, you've ruined my life, man," the employee said before walking away in tears.

The customer was later ejected from the hotel for harassing other employees.
 

IHG hotels called the treatment of the employee "unacceptable" and vowed to investigate the incident.

"We were shocked and saddened to see the video and the clearly unacceptable treatment of a longtime hotel colleague," Jacob Hawkins, a spokesperson for IHG Hotels & Resorts told Newsweek.

Hawkins said the Holiday Inn location where the incident took place is an independently owned franchise.

Still, he said every employee representing IHG Hotels & resorts "deserves to be treated with respect and dignity."

A Reddit user who identified himself as the employee said he quit his job and drank heavily after the video went viral.

He added that he suffers from bipolar disorder and schizo-affective disorders.

Empathetic Internet users donated over $123,000 to a GoFundMe created by a YouTube vlogger who identified the former employee as "Caleb C."

Twitter users were quick to criticize Tariq and the customer who filmed the video. A group of women attacked Tariq who referred to them as "non-FBA bed wenches."

Tariq Nasheed went off on Youtube vlogger Jeremy Hambly on his Twitter page last night. In a series of tweets, Tariq accused Jeremy of being a "white supremacist" and a "racist".

I have never heard of Jeremy Hambly until yesterday, when I wrote my post titled "Over $41,000 raised for Holiday Inn employee who was harassed by Black customer."

For some reason, Tariq decided to attack your auntie in a blistering post on FBAtimes.com, in which he refers to me as a "non-FBA blogger" who aligns myself with "suspected white supremacists."

I am a non-assuming middle aged blogger who never goes out of my way to insult or degrade Black bloggers. You would have to search way back in my archives to find a negative post about another Black blogger.

I am hurt and dismayed that Tariq chose to attack me in this manner rather than email me to discuss any issue that he may have had with me.

Below is an excerpt from his article:

"Non-FBA gossip blogger who goes by the name Sandra Rose, has featured a story on her site SandraRose.com where she is promoting a Gofundme page and YouTube channel created by a suspected white supremacist named Jeremy Hambly who also goes by The Quartering.

Sandra Rose has a history of writing articles that denigrate Foundational Black American celebrities. Many people online has had issues with the weird articles from Sandra Rose’s website, where she mocked Jay-z and Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy’s hair"
