Sha'Carri Richardson was nearly canceled this week when she chose violence in her ongoing beef with Jamaican Olympic sprinters.

It all started when the 21-year-old sprinter "liked" a tweet dissing Jamaican silver medalist Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce who came in second at the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon in August.

When asked if she saw Richardson during the race, Fraser Pryce said, "I wasn't watching Sha'Carri, to be honest."

As a reminder, Richardson finished dead last in that race.

After the race, Fraser Pryce tweeted: "Shorty in the back look Lil Wayne," referring to Richardson.

Then, Richardson "liked" a post that was disrespectful to Jamaicans. The post read:

"Not y'all Jamaicans still talking shit when y'all gotta walk barefoot to your coconut stand everyday for a living."

Richardson and the Jamaican athletes shared more insults on Twitter.com.

Then the American sprinter who was banned from Olympic competition for smoking weed shared a post with the word "Violence" with the toggle on.

"Oh you're choosing violence now?" wrote one Twitter follower. Others let Richardson know that her attitude was unbecoming of an American athlete.

Another Twitter user wrote:

"Should've chosen violence on that track sis! It’s too late neowwww."

A third Twitter follower said the Jamaican ladies were eating jerk chicken and dancing by the time Richardson reached the finish line.

"They had time to make jerk chicken & start dutty wining to a dancehall track by the time you got to the finish line. The only violence is how you lost. You gotta stop. 'This is very em-bear-rah-zing! Are you not em-bear-rahz-ed?'"

Despite the mocking tweets, Twitter says the Taliban can stay on the platform as long as they don't incite violence.

In a statement to Mediaite.com, Twitter said its "top priority is keeping people safe, and we remain vigilant."

One Taliban account has more than 310,000 followers.

Conservative lawmakers noted that the Taliban has Twitter accounts but Donald Trump is still banned.

"Why on God's green Earth does the Taliban spokesman have an active Twitter account but not the former President of the United States?," Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) tweeted Sunday.

Former President Barack Obama proves there are two sets of rules for Americans -- one for the Haves and the other for the Have Nots.

The #ObamaVariant trended overnight online after guests leaked photos and videos from Obama's three day bash.

Obama, who turned 60 on August 4, promised to "scale back" his massive 500 guest list after critics slammed his birthday plans.

Your auntie would post the photos from the party, but Obama's people are snatching down photos and videos from the Internet.

Meanwhile, liberals are praising Obama for holding his party as the Delta variant surged across America.

New York Times reporter Annie Karni was dragged on Twitter for describing Obama's soiree as a "sophisticated vaccinated crowd".

Journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted:

"A NYT reporter on CNN justifying Obama's huge maskless birthday bash because he only invited 'a sophisticated, vaccinated crowd' is about as emblematic of liberal discourse as it gets. What happened to all the concerns about vaccinated people passing Delta to the unvaccinated? Yes, it's a pandemic and a crisis, but let the sophisticated people have their fun!"

No one could believe it at first: Shaun King deleted his Twitter after weeks of brutal taunting by Black Twitter.

King announced he was deleting his Twitter app to spend time with his family.

But his followers claim he is on the run because he's in trouble with the law.

King was accused of raising funds for Black men killed by white police, but the money never made it to the victim's families.

Then Samaria Rice, the mother of Tamir Rice, dragged King and reminded him of his Caucasian bloodline.

Tamir is the 12-year-old Cleveland boy who was shot and killed by police for playing with a toy gun in 2014.

Rice slammed King for using her dead son's name to enrich himself.

"Personally I don't understand how you sleep at night," she said. "I never gave you permission to raise nothing."

She added: "As a white man acting black you are an imposter that can not be trusted."

Rice's allegations opened the door for Black Twitter to drag King up and down his timeline. The comments were brutal, and King deleted his Twitter account a few weeks later.

Check out some of the responses below:

Naomi Osaka put Megyn Kelly in her place after the journalist questioned her decision to pose for the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit issue.

Megyn criticized Naomi after the tennis champ unveiled her first Sports Illustrated cover on Monday.

Naomi graced one of three SI Swim covers that also featured rapper Megan Thee Stallion (center) and male-to-female transgender Leyna Bloom.

Naomi captioned the tweet: "First Haitian and Japanese woman on the cover."

The 23-year-old also unveiled her cover of Vogue Hong Kong magazine after being featured on Vogue Japan magazine.

But instead of congratulating Naomi, Megyn slammed the youngster for shooting the covers while refusing to speak to the press after her tennis matches.

Naomi was mocked by conservative commentator Clay Travis, who wrote:

"Since saying she's too introverted to talk to the media after tennis matches, Naomi Osaka has launched a reality show, a Barbie, and now is on the cover of the SI swimsuit issue."

Megyn Kelly weighed in, tweeting, "Let's not forget the cover of (& interview in) Vogue Japan and Time Mag!"

Naomi was insulted by Megyn's criticism of her decision to choose which media outlets she speaks to.

"Seeing as you're a journalist I would've assumed you would take the time to research what the lead times are for magazines, if you did that you would've found out I shot all of my covers last year. Instead your first reaction is to hop on here and spew negativity, do better Megan."

She then blocked Megyn on Twitter. Megyn shared a screen capture of the blocked message.

"Poor @naomiosaka blocked me while taking a shot at me (guess she's only tough on the courts), She is apparently arguing that she shot her many covers b/4 publicly claiming she was too socially anxious to deal w/press. Truth is she just doesn't like Qs she can't control. Admit it."

Piers Morgan, the outspoken editor-at-large of DailyMail.com, agreed with Kelly, tweeting:

"Yep, and she just blocked me too. The only media Ms Osaka wants to tolerate are sycophantic magazine editors telling her how perfect she is."

 

When tennis legend Martina Navratilova told Megyn to pick on someone her own size, Megyn clapped back: "What a phony. You mocked Naomi's claims at 1st. Then the Woke came for u & u folded like a cheap tent!"
 

Question: Whose side are you on?

A loyal reader emailed to say Keri Hilson responded to my post, titled "Singer Keri Hilson hopes God will send her a Black man."

The singer/songwriter recently took to Twitter.com to ask God to send her a good man.

"I want who God wants for me, but am I wrong for hoping my soulmate is a black man? He don't even have to be American, I've dated 3 non-American black men. But I want to love a black man. Or a man of color... And if he's neither, he'd have to have a deep understanding & genuine support of my pro-blackness... Anybody feel me?"

However, some of Keri's followers misunderstood her tweets. They assumed she was tired of dating white men and wanted God to send her one good Black man.

Alexander Tamargo/GC Images

People make mistakes. We're all human. Even bloggers get it wrong occasionally.

Rather than email me, Keri took to Twitter to address your auntie's error:

"Dear Sandra Rose, I have never dated a white man, never even kissed one...nor have I dated Soulja Boy, Trey, or Lil Wayne. I’m actually surprised you’re still around from all these years of incorrect info. You are one funny lady."

My loyal reader thought Keri was coming for me, but I assured her that Keri was not that crazy. She wouldn't dare come for me -- not with all the dirt I have on her.

Keri is one of the washed up celebs who nervously check the blog regularly, hoping I won't spill their tea.

The music video that accompanies the new remix features Juvenile with his former Ca$H Money Records label boss Mannie Fresh. The two rappers dance with scantily clad women while urging viewers to "vax that thang up."

    Girl you looks good, won't you vax that thang up
    You’s a handsome young brother, won’t you vax that thang up
    Date in real life you need to vax that thang up

Mannie appears on screen with dozens of dancing eggplants as he raps:

    I know you can't stand it
    No holding hands chick
    But when we get the shot we gonna be romancing
    Girl you can be the queen
    After quarantine
    We can meet up at the spot and we can do the thing

Twitter reacted to Juvenile and Mannie's effort.

The same people who praised sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson after she qualified for the Olympics, are dragging her on social media for defending Chris Brown.

Brown, 32, was arrested following a domestic dispute after attending a pre-Grammy Awards party with Rihanna in early February 2009.

In old tweets dating back to 2019, Richardson tells a Rihanna fan to shut up.

"Oh my gosh SHUT UP !! Women like you are so annoying. None of us are perfect that was a mistake he made years ago & was dubbed throught [sic] the mud about for YEARS. It’s not right for anyone to put theirs hands on another person but y'all don't say anything about the fact that.

"Dragged through *but y'all don't say anything about the fact Rihanna hit him where is that criticism at. He came out & apologize but what did she do Both were wrong and both have move on with their lives why can't y’all."


 

Richardson, 21, qualified for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team, winning the women's 100-meter dash in 10.86 seconds at the Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon.

Afterwards, she confirmed her LGBT+ status by tweeting a rainbow.

Twitter has responded to reports that its image cropping algorithm is biased to favor Caucasian people over Black people in the same photo.

Twitter was criticized last year after some users noticed the image cropping algorithm favored Caucasian people over Black people in the same photo.

In a new post on Twitter's official blog, the leftist social media platform admitted its image algorithm favored white people and women.

"We tested for bias before shipping the model & didn't find evidence of racial or gender bias in our testing," a Twitter engineer wrote. "But it's clear that we've got more analysis to do. We'll continue to share what we learn, what actions we take, & will open source it so others can review and replicate."

The statement was in response to a 2020 post comparing two images of Barack Obama and Sen. Mitch McConnell.

In both examples, the Twitter algorithm favored the senator over the former president -- even though their positions are switched in the two photos.

In March, Twitter made a change to the mobile version of the platform that shows the full photo instead of a cropped image.

The image cropping algorithm will soon be removed from Twitter, Complex.com reports.

Twitter blocked a divisive hashtag comparing Senator Tim Scott to racist "Uncle Tom" that depicts Black people as sellouts.

The Republican Party chose Scott to deliver the rebuttal to Joe Biden's first ever speech before 200 members of Congress on Wednesday night.

The 46th president spoke for about an hour to a nearly empty room due to Covid concerns -- despite the fact that he is fully vaccinated.

After Biden's speech, Scott, the Republican senator from South Carolina, said the United States is not a racist country and most Americans are not racists.

Scott spoke of an unfriendlier time in America when he experienced discrimination.

He argued that the same party that claims to fight white supremacy is the most intolerant of others.

"I get called Uncle Tom and the N-word by progressives ... I know first-hand, our healing is not finished,' he said.

"Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country."

The hashtag "Uncle Tim" began trending on Twitter soon after he spoke.

Bishop Talbert Swan, a black pastor from Massachusetts, tweeted: "Uncle Tim Scott has perfected the art of sycophantic bootlicking. He's a master step n fetch it artist and cunning white supremacy apologist, who demonstrated his buck dancing skills in front of the entire world."

But others pointed out the hypocrisy that exists on social media.

One Twitter user wrote:

"The fact that "Uncle Tim" is trending on Twitter tells you all you need to know about the left."

Another user tweeted:

"Not stunned that Uncle Tim is trending because how dare even one black person not follow the Democrats like the Pied Piper. How dare Sen Tim Scott have his own opinions and principles?"

Twitter allowed the hashtag to trend for hours before it was finally blocked.
