An 89-year-old pizza delivery man was tipped over $12,000 cash by a Utah couple who started a fundraiser for him on TikTok.

Derlin Newey was speechless when TikTok star Carlos Valdez and his wife arrived at his home to personally deliver the money.

"I don't know what to say," Newey cried after opening the envelope stuffed with cash.

Newey has been working about 30-hours a week delivering pizzas for Papa John's to pay the bills his social security benefits don't cover.

Customers love him because he is so polite. They often ask for him by name.

Valdez and his wife, who have a huge following on TikTok, record and share Derlin's deliveries on the video streaming network.

Their followers banded together to raise the money for Newey.

Senior White House adviser to President Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway announced she is leaving the White House to spend more quality time with her children.

Conway announced her decision on Sunday. She said she informed Trump on Sunday night, the Washington Post reported.

In a statement, Conway said she is transitioning out of her role as counselor to Trump at the end of this month.

Her husband, attorney and frequent Trump critic George Conway will be stepping down from his position at the Lincoln Project, a group of anti-Trump Republicans that teamed up to help defeat Trump in November.

Sources say the Conways and their teenage daughter, Claudia, had become too much of a distraction to the president.

In response to her parents' announcement, Claudia took to TikTok to boast about her role in her parents' decisions to quit their jobs.

"Look what I did! Look at what I did, ladies and gentlemen," the 15-year-old said in a series of TikTok videos on Sunday night.

Claudia was forced to delete her TikTok earlier this year only to return in July.

She captioned her reaction video: "the power that i hold. i - they think this is gonna stop me from getting emancipated? NANSHAJAB BYE."

She also made a video detailing the mental and physical abuse she claims to have suffered at home in the family's multi-million dollar New Jersey mansion.

The Conways have four children: twins Claudia and George IV, Charlotte, and Vanessa.

A police officer was fired from the Gwinnett County Police Department after a TikTok video showed him using a Taser on an unarmed Black woman.

The incident happened here in Gwinnett County, Georgia, about 20 miles northeast of Atlanta.

Former officer Michael Oxford, who is white, responded to a "property damage" call on Aug. 18. According to the caller, a bottle had been thrown at a car.

When Oxford arrived, he spotted a woman who fit the description of the person who picked up the bottle. Oxford attempted to speak to the woman but he couldn't because Kyndesia Smith and others were yelling at him.

When he told Smith she was under arrest for obstructing an officer, she said, "I'm not going anywhere." She added: "It doesn't matter. You're on our property. We did not call you. I'm not going anywhere."

Oxford attempted to drag Smith off the porch, as several bystanders captured the chaotic scene on their cellphones.

After telling her she was under arrest, Oxford fired his Taser at her and she fell into some bushes in front of the porch.

Smith can be heard saying, "Call the police, mama," as the officer told her to turn over so he could cuff her.

"Don't touch me," Smith said, as she waved her arms to prevent the officer from cuffing her. Bystanders are heard yelling at him to stop.

"You're on her neck," someone says off camera. "Do you not understand what you're doing?"

Later in the video, Smith is sitting upright and struggling with Oxford who tells her "Give me your hands."

Toward the end of the video, another white officer arrived to help cuff Smith. She was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail and released early Wednesday morning.

Even though Oxford was fired, the police department said there was probable cause to arrest Smith for obstruction of a law enforcement officer and that his use of force was within the department's policy.

The teenager from India was best known for her dance videos on TikTok. She had more than 1.1 million followers on the social media site that is wildly popular with teens and young adults.

Siya's passing was confirmed by her manager Arjun Sarin, who had spoken to her the day before she was found dead in her home in East Delhi, India.

According to sources cited by London's Daily Mail Online, Siya had received "threats" on the Internet prior to her death.

Photographer Viral Bhayani also mourned Kakkar's death on Instagram, writing: "Sad news 16-year-old sweet tik-toker @siya_kakkar died by suicide.

Pop singer/rapper Lizzo shared a powerful TikTok video clip blasting all those who criticize her for her looks and her body size.

"Hey, so I've been working out consistently for the last 5 years and it may come as a surprise to some of y'all that I'm not working out to have your ideal body type," she says over videos that show her working out intensely.

"I'm working out to have my ideal body type and you know what type that is? None of your f**king business! Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job," she said.

Lizzo went on to curse out each and every hater who don't look in the mirror before they criticize others.

"So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald's or workout or not workout, how about you look at your own f**king self and worry about your own goddamn body because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside, health is also what happens on the inside. And a lot of y'all need to do a f**king cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day."

Lizzo has been mocked and teased relentlessly on social media for not having a slim, curvy body like other singers in her field.

The 32-year-old star admitted she's depressed and sometimes cries herself to sleep due to the excessive bullying. She has considered deleting her social media accounts, but the draw to social media is too powerful to let go.

In her hit song "Truth Hurts," Lizzo said "why food great 'til I gotta lose weight." The singer has ramped up her exercise and dieting routines - but not to appease others. To inspire others to eat healthy and workout so they can live long, healthy lives.

Reginae Carter unloaded on her elder, NeNe Leakes, while on quarantine on TikTok Monday.

It isn't clear what set her off. Reginae, who turns 22 in November, told 52-year-old NeNe she is depositing Trump checks. "You are the one who is losing houses and cars sweetheart... I don't need to take money from anybody. I am very rich bitch!"

It is out of character for Reginae to be disrespectful to her elders. She is always respectful and sweet to your auntie. NeNe must have really said something to irk her nerves.

In other news, Reginae says her father, rapper Lil Wayne, doesn't mind her bearing skin in Fenty lingerie -- but her mother, Antonia "Toya" Johnson, does.

Reginae made headlines when she was picked to be the face of Rihanna's Fenty lingerie line in January.

Even though she's 21, Reginae told Page Six that her parents had opposing views to her modeling sexy lingerie in public campaigns.

"When I first posted my mom was like, 'Okay, don't get too lively with the lingerie,'" Reginae said.

Reginae, who is the product of teenage parents, said, "My daddy never really mentioned it. I don't know what he thinks about it, but my mom is like, 'Right now, don't take no more clothes off.'"

The reality TV personality who grew up under the watchful eyes of aunties Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 44, and Monica Arnold, 39, says her mother wants her to be respectful and exercise some decorum.

But Fenty line owner Rihanna is not so respectful.

"When I first started out I wasn't really the type to show thongs [and be] sexy and stuff. When I was picking out my options, I was trying to get PJs — but Rihanna's team was like, 'No, send her sexy.'"

A nurse who works at a New York hospital treating coronavirus patients took to YouTube to blow the whistle on "negligent doctors” who she says are "literally murdering" Black people.

According to the CDC, Black people account for 30% of deaths attributed to the virus. New York state has the highest rate of Covid-19 deaths at 19,000+.

But one nurse claims Black people are not dying from Covid-19 -- they are being "murdered" by "negligent" doctors.

Nicole Sirotek, an ICU nurse from Nevada who traveled to NYC to help out on the frontlines, posted a YouTube video describing the "gross negligence and mismanagement" that results in deaths of minority patients daily.

"Nobody cares because they're all minorities," Sirotek said in a video. She said she was once assigned to care for a patient who was already in a body bag.

"They're not dying of Covid. Yes, people are going to die of Covid, I know this, I'm not a new grad student. I am literally saying they're murdering these people. And nobody cares because they're all minorities and we're in the f**king hood and that's not okay."

While nurses are being honored during Nurses Week 2020, which begins on May 6 and ends on May 12, other nurses have come under attack on social media for posting thousands of TikTok videos of themselves dancing and twerking while on duty.

Twitter deleted many of the disgraceful videos that show just how narcissistic the nursing profession has become.
