Here’s what happened today:
A Different Tune
The NFL is kicking off the 2021 season with a prominent social justice campaign that will see messages like “End Racism” and “Inspire Change” written in the end zones during the preseason and the Black National Anthem being played before every game.
“Lift Every Voice and Sing” and the U.S. National Anthem will be broadcast during “tentpole events” including The NFL Draft, Playoffs, and Super Bowl. The song will make its national debut on Thursday, Sept. 9th’s NFL Kickoff game between Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys.
In addition, players will be allowed to protest the U.S. national anthem by taking a knee, and display helmet messages with the league’s support.
Any Given Sunday director Oliver Stone called Hillary Clinton a “man” when discussing female politicians in a recent interview.
“You need strong leaders, but I do see the feminine impulse as being important, especially when situations become too militant,” Stone said.
“The feminine impulse, I’m talking about the maternal impulse not the Hillary Clinton/Margaret Thatcher version of feminism. They’re men. They’re not women,” he continued. “I don’t want women in politics who want to be men. If a woman is a woman, she should be a woman and bring her maternalism. It’s a leavening influence.”
The Hollywood producer behind Sundance darling The Kindergarten Teacher and Ethan Hawke star The Kid, was arrested on Thursday for reportedly running “an extensive and far-reaching” sex ring through his production company PaperChase Films.
Dillon Jordan, 49, is accused of partnering up with a UK madam “by sharing and referring customers and prostitutes,” while he used his “movie production company to conceal the proceeds he made from exploiting women” for the last seven years.
He was taken into custody in San Bernardino County, California on charges including enticement and use of interstate commerce to promote unlawful activity and money laundering, which can land him up to twenty years behind bars.
Athlete Sha’Carri Richardson, who was disqualified from the Tokyo Olympic Game after testing positive for marijuana use, has been offered a “high” paying spokesperson position from a vape company.
Dr. Dabber, the producer of portable THC vaporizers, said they were “saddened” to hear of Richardson’s suspension from the US Track and Field team for using cannabis to cope with the death of her mother.
“At Dr. Dabber,” the company said, “we believe that THC can actually have many positive effects on an athlete’s recovery and overall mental wellbeing.”
They said the job would entail Richarson testing out their dab rigs and vape pens, and they want to pay her $250,000 to work with their team as a resident “doctor.”
Exactly 24 years to the day of fashion designer Gianni Versace’s murder, two bodies were found the Miami hotel that was once his mansion.
A housekeeper at The Villa Casa Casuarina Hotel reported two deceased males were found in one of the rooms on Wednesday, and Miami Beach Police have launched an official death investigation.
Versace was shot in the back of the head two times by serial killer Andrew Cunanan on July 15, 1997. Eight days after the murder the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive killed himself with the same gun. The Versace family sold the mansion in 2000.
“An with an E” star Miranda McKeon has been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer at the age of 19. The actress called her extremely rare teenage diagnosis “one in a million.”
On June 14, she learned that her cancer had spread to her lymph nodes. “My doctor was like, ‘Your stage doesn’t define you. And your cancer is your cancer,’” she said. “Which I appreciate because when you hear someone’s stage, your mind goes straight to one place or another and I don’t think that’s necessarily representative of what I’m going through.”
She will endure a four-month treatment plan of chemotherapy, radiation, and possibly surgery, but the Netflix star is staying positive.
“Although I don’t have the easiest case scenario like I wish it hadn’t spread to my lymph nodes or that it was a little less complicated, I never had a moment where I was like, ‘Oh, am I going to die from this?’ That was never really thought,” she said. “I think this entire time it’s been more of like, ‘OK, we’re going to treat this and solve it.'”
Rapper Pitbull made an impassioned plea to Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos to help Cuba through their crisis.
“Not only is this a Cuba event, a Cuba thing, this is a world event. This isn’t about politics, this is about saving lives. This is about unity, not division. And the bottom line is this is about taking action.” he implored in an Instagram video Wednesday.
“It gets me hot, it bothers me and it frustrates me to a certain extent, being a Cuban American and having a platform to speak to the world and not being able to help my own people,” he went on. “Not being able to get them food, not being able to get them water, not being able to get them medicine, but most of all not being able to help and get them what they deserve, which is freedom.”
Then personally addressed Bezos. “All world allies get together to help. Global businesses get together to help,” he concluded. “People that we’re so proud of, such as Jeff Bezos — Cuban-American — graduated from a high school in Miami, built one of the biggest companies in the world, the richest man in the world. He’s somebody that can get involved and really help us.”

Designer Georgina Chapman finalized her divorce from convicted sex offender and fallen Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein, after more than three years in court.
