Handout: Royal Court of Saudi Arabia

"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin criticized Joe Biden for fist bumping Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during a recent visit to Saudi Arabia.

The U.S. President visited Saudi Arabia to beg for oil and to improve relations between the two countries.

Biden fist bumped Mohammed after he landed in Saudi Arabia.

Mohammed allegedly ordered the 2018 assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"This is a murderer. You don't normalize a murderer by this fist bump," Sunny Hostin said during Monday’s episode. "It was the photo op that he wanted and we've normalized these relationships."

Hostin said the fist bump was an "unforced error" on Biden's part.

She continued, "I think this is bad no matter how you look at it, and we shouldn't be here saying, 'Well Trump did it so it's okay that Biden did it.' It's just not okay in my view. I understand he was there because of the oil prices, I understand that we should be taxing American oil companies that are gouging Americans, that's really what we should be doing."

On a positive note, gas prices dropped to $4 a gallon in the United States after hitting a record of $5.02 a gallon on June 14.

Alvarez, 25, fainted and sank to the bottom of the pool after completing her solo routine during the Budapest 2022 World Aquatics Championships on Wednesday.

She was dramatically rescued by her coach, Andrea Fuentes, who dove into the water and scooped her off the pool floor.

Fuentes, a four-time Olympic medalist in swimming, later said she dove into the water after the lifeguards did nothing to help Alvarez.

"I think she was at least two minutes without breathing because her lungs were full of water," said Fuentes, adding that the swimmer's heart was beating and her vital signs were OK.

Alvarez recovered quickly and had planned to participate in the final on Friday after she was cleared medically.

In an update on Instagram on Friday, Alvarez wrote, "know that I am okay and healthy! I appreciate all of the messages of support and hope everyone can respect that my team and I still have two more days of competition to be focused on here in Budapest."

She said she hoped people would understand that USA Artistic Swimming and she "have a job to finish" – whether it is in the water or on the sidelines.

However, a FINA official said the swimming organization asked team USA to remove Alvarez from the competition after she underwent a full medical examination Friday morning. The FINA official said he did not know the result of her medical exam.

Alvarez told NBC's "Nightly News" on Thursday that everything went black after she completed her routine.

"And then, I remember going down and just being ... kinda like, 'Uh oh.' Like, 'I don't feel too great.' And, that's the last thing I remember, actually," she said.

Fuentes said she rescued Alvarez during a similar incident last year.

"I've seen it happen to her before," Alvarez's mother told WIVB-TV. "Never in competition, though. I knew right away. On their last element, I could tell something was up."

Chicago gang members "violated" a 2-year-old boy by tossing him in a garbage can because his father is a rival gang member.

Viral video footage shows gang members chasing the boy's father who is pushing his son in a stroller. When the gang bangers couldn't catch up to dad, they tossed the screaming child into a trash can.

Then the gang members, who call themselves "demons," snapped a photo of the crying toddler and posted the image on social media.

They captioned the post, "Caught the opps son I had to violate."

According to multiple reports, Chicago demons are going after the youngest and most vulnerable Chicago residents if they have beef with their fathers.

"Media Take Out learned that one Chi-Raq gang member recently posted video of himself 'violating' the 2 year old son of his opps. The social media reports claim that the gang member 'caught the 2 year old boy slipping.'

Because the gang member couldn't get the boy's father, he decided to 'violate' the toddler, by throwing him into a garbage can. And the gang member wanted everyone to know how much of a 'demon' that he is... so he posted an image of the crime on his social media page."

Media Takeout reached out to the Chicago police for comment on the IG post. But they refused to comment on the incident.

The video can be viewed here.

"Why take that away from her? ... If she doesn't want it, all right, that's where you stop it. But I'm not just going to say no."

Coco said Chanel's request for breast milk made her feel wanted and youthful.

"Coco absolutely breastfeeds because she just wanted that mama connection with the baby," Ice T told PEOPLE at the time.

A Rihanna fan page apparently scooped all the blogs by leaking a photo of new mommy RiRi feeding her adorable newborn son.

In the photo, Rihanna wears a checkered pink top while feeding her baby boy.

The fan page captioned the sweet image: "My Queen @badgalriri."

Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky welcomed the newborn on May 13 in Los Angeles. They didn't announce a name, but a source says the baby's name is Robin Rakim Mayers. He is named after his mom, Robyn, and his father, whose real name is Rakim Athelaston Mayers.

Fans believe Rihanna leaked the photo herself because a hospital worker is shopping photos of the newborn in the hospital nursery.

The same employee violated the hospital's privacy policy by announcing the hospital cleared a floor so Rihanna could give birth last week.

Rihanna's ecstatic fans congratulated her in the photo comments section.

One fan wrote: "Congratulations. Now breastfeed that baby."

Some new moms choose not to breastfeed for personal, health, and aesthetic reasons.

LeBron James' son LeBron "Bronny" James Jr. went viral after he took his longtime girlfriend to their high school prom.

Kids who follow Bronny on social media know who his girlfriend is. But Black Twitter expressed surprised that she was from the other side of the tracks.

Those who see no color slammed Black Twitter's racist hypocrisy.


 
One Twitter user wrote: "These the Mfers they wanted Bronny to take to prom."

In other news, sports analysts say LeBron, 37, and Bronny, 17, will become the first father-son duo to play together in the NBA. Other famous father-son duos have played in the NBA, but not for the same team.

The Washington Post via Getty Images

Bronny is LeBron's eldest son. He is a sophomore at the exclusive Sierra Canyon School in the Los Angeles area. He is a 6-ft-3 point guard who averaged about 4.1 points per game in his sophomore season.

247Sports.com dropped Bronny from 27 to 52 in its prospect rankings at the start of his junior year - after he was ranked the best player in the class of 2023 while in middle school.

NCAA Division 1 schools showing interest in Bronny include Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, North Carolina, and UCLA. But his father has bigger plans for him.

LeBron wants Bronny to play in the NBA with him. So he's using himself as leverage — by promising to play for any NBA team that drafts his favorite son.

A childhood friend of rapper Gunna claims he is going through codeine withdrawal in jail.

According to MediaTakeOut, the friend claims Gunna is showing signs of codeine withdrawal in a grainy photo that surfaced online Thursday. The image was taken from a CCTV camera in the jail during Gunna's arraignment hearing.

A judge denied bond for the "Hot" rapper on Thursday. He is sitting in jail with rapper Young Thug and 26 YSL gang members who were indicted on racketeering charges on Monday.

Gunna frequently rapped about his drug addiction in his rap songs.

"Had a bad relationship with codeine," Gunna raps in his hit song "Codeine."

Lean, also known as purple drank, purple lean, and sizzurp, is a concoction of codeine cough syrup and hard candy mixed in a soft drink like Sprite. Rappers prefer to sip lean in styrofoam cups.

Gunna is signed to Thug's YSL record label. But Atlanta District Attorney Fani Willis says YSL is a front for a violent street gang.

Gunna's album Wunna debuted at the top of the charts in 2020. His follow-up album DS4Ever was his 2nd consecutive number one album.

Monica is not hiding the fact that she is in love with incarcerated rapper C-Murder. The mom-of-three shared an Instagram photo of her jailhouse visit with C-Murder on Easter Sunday.

In the photo Monica is seen seated between C-Murder's legs while he embraces her at the Louisiana State Penitentiary.

The rapper, real name Corey Miller, was convicted of killing 16-year-old Steve Thomas in 2009. He will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Monica is apparently confident that she knows where her man is at all times. She has trust issues after both of her marriages ended in divorce due to cheating.

Monica, 41, released her debut album Miss Thang in 1995. Her hit songs include "Before You Walk Out of My Life", "Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)", "Like This and Like That", "The Boy Is Mine" (with Brandy), "The First Night", "Angel of Mine", and "So Gone."

While married to former NBA player Shannon Brown, she starred in her own reality TV series Monica: Still Standing on BET. Monica and Shannon divorced in 2019. They share daughter Laiyah Brown.

Monica also has two sons, Rodney Ramone "Rocko" Hill III, 16, and Romelo Montez Hill, 14, with rapper and music producer Rodney Ramone Hill, Jr.

Miller, 51, is best known for his debut album Life or Death which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Twitter responded to Monica's jailhouse photo.

Also in the photo are Dwyane's transgender child Zaya Wade, 14, formerly Zion, and Zaya's FtM significant other who identifies as a boy named Hudson (see photos below).

It was all too confusing for Dwyane's IG followers who tried to be open minded.

According to a new poll, 62% of adults say they would be comfortable if their child came out to them as lesbian, gay, or bisexual.

Additionally, 24% of adolescents and teenagers now identify as transgender since 2020.

In response to Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signing a transgender treatment ban into law, Dr. Nola Ernest said "86% of transgender youth contemplate suicide, and almost half attempt it."

Drake trended on social media over the weekend after he shared photos of his new braided lace front wig on Instagram Story.

Drake's braided wig nearly broke Twitter over the weekend. His fans couldn't stop laughing at a photo of Drake pursing his lips while showcasing his new wig piece.

For some reason, there was a debate over whether Drake was wearing a wig.

"Drake had short hair two days ago, now this ni**a got braids lmfaoo," one person tweeted.

While another person tweeted "Is that synthetic weave or human hair that helped fill in the braids on drake’s hair?"

"You Know Drake is about to release music whenever he's unlocking a new character or personality. The Braid's era," a third person wrote.

The Canadian rap star joins a growing fraternity of male rappers, celebrities and athletes who wear lace front braids and extensions.

Stacey Abrams has apologized for requiring school children to wear face masks so she could remove hers for a photo op.

The controversy began when Abrams tweeted a photo that showed her sitting on a floor in a classroom surrounded by schoolchildren who were all masked up while she was bare faced.

Georgia is one of the red states where face masks are not mandated indoors or outdoors.

Abrams' campaign team allegedly required children and staff members to mask up so she could remove her mask during her visit to Glennwood Elementary School to celebrate Black History Month.

Abrams deleted the image from her Twitter page as outrage and condemnation erupted on Twitter.com.

Abrams' camp initially blamed "racism" for the public backlash across social media.

"It is shameful that our opponents are using a Black History Month reading event for Georgia children as the impetus for a false political attack," her campaign team wrote in a statement.

But by Tuesday, the 48-year-old Democrat had backtracked and apologized.

"Protocols matter. Protecting our kids is the most important thing, and anything that can be perceived as undermining that is a mistake, and I apologize," she tweeted on Tuesday.

Abrams again admitted she made a "mistake" in an interview with CNN on Tuesday. She said she took her mask off to read to the children at Glennwood Elementary School.

Political pundits and even the liberal co-hosts of "The View" accused the Georgia gubernatorial candidate of violating her own political party's mandate.
 

Cardi B's throwback photo from her struggle days as an exotic dancer went viral on Twitter.

The former stripper shared a photo that shows her twerking amid a pile of one dollar bills as men count the cash.

She captioned the image: "2014."

Cardi previously told Interview magazine:

"When I first entered the strip club, I was really shy. I felt really uncomfortable. I felt very ashamed. There were times when I was crying, like, "Oh my gosh, if my mom or my dad found out, they'd be so humiliated. But I needed the f*cking money."

The Bronx-raised rapper can look back on those days and laugh now that she has more than enough money to feed her husband and children.

Cardi's post sparked a Twitter trend, as fans shared one of Cardi's struggle photos as an example of themselves if defending their favorite celebrity was a full-time job.

Angelina Jolie's uneven hair extensions went viral on Monday after she attended the Rome Film Festival on Sunday. Angelina's hair extensions were the talk of Twitter.

The mom-of-six looked stunning in a strapless custom Atelier Versace platinum gown made from heritage metal mesh.

But it was the Eternals star's hair extensions that got the attention of social media users.

Many on Twitter.com questioned why Angelina's hair stylist chopped her extensions so badly.

"How do you let Angelina Jolie walk a red carpet with her hair extensions looking like this, somebody getting fired," one user tweeted.

Another Twitter user wrote: "Well, maybe she had one of her kids do the extensions, which is kinda sweet."

And a third person tweeted:

"The dress is perfection but did one of the children get angry and take a scissors to her hair in the middle of the night."

The photographer who took photos of Border Patrol agents on horseback chasing down Haitian migrants is speaking out.

The viral photos showed frightened Haitian people desperately clinging to bags of food and fleeing while agents on horseback chased them.

The optics of white federal agents herding Black men like cattle sparked outrage around the world.

Democrats Maxine Waters and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the border agents of "whipping" the Haitian men.

Speaking with KTSM, photographer Paul Ratje said he and his colleagues never saw agents whipping anyone.

"Some of the Haitian men started running, trying to go around the horses," said Ratje, who is based in Las Cruces. He said he took the pictures from the Mexico side of the border.

Ratje said a photo frozen in time can give the impression that the agent used his long reins to whip people.

"I've never seen them whip anyone. He was swinging [the reins], but it can be misconstrued when you're looking at the picture."

White House press secretary Jen Psaki called the images "horrific", and she said the agents in the photos have been suspended.

On Thursday, the White House issued a statement saying Border Patrol agents are no longer allowed to use horses to patrol the border.
