We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate.
Here’s what happened today:
The Atlanta branch of Scandanavian furniture store Ikea curated a special holiday menu to celebrate Juneteenth, the brand new federal holiday that marks the emancipation of enslaved Americans, but the message of the marketing ploy was lost in translation.
In observance of the holiday, the branch announced they would be serving a special menu of “fried chicken, watermelon, mac n cheese, potato salad, collard greens, candied yams.” Employees were so incensed by the selection, 33 of them called off work in protest.
“You cannot say serving watermelon on Juneteenth is a soul food menu when you don’t even know the history. They used to feed slaves watermelon,” an anonymous employee remarked. “It caused a lot of people to be upset. People actually wanted to quit. People weren’t coming back to work.”
John Stevens, the former head of the United Kingdom’s Scotland Yard, confirmed that Prince Charles was secretly questioned by U.K. police in 2005, about a note Princess Diana wrote prior to her death that alleged he was planning to have her killed.
“My husband is planning an accident in my car, brake failure and serious head injury,” she wrote about Charles in 1995, claiming he wanted to get her out of the picture so he could marry Prince William and Prince Harry’s nanny, Tiggy Legg-Bourke.
The royal couple split in 1996, and Princess Diana famously died in a Paris car crash as she fled paparazzi in 1997. Operation Paget was launched by the British Metropolitan Police in 2004 to investigate the numerous conspiracy theories surrounding her death.
Stevens, who was involved in the probe, interviewed Charles as a witness rather than a suspect and said he fully cooperated with the investigation. He reported that Charles didn’t know about the note until it was published by the media in 2003, had not ever discussed it with Diana, and was unaware she had those feelings about him.
“We found no other evidence to support the scenario suggested in Diana’s note,” Stevens commented. “At the end of the day he was incredibly cooperative because he had nothing to hide.”
Here We Go Again
Rapper Chris Brown, who was convicted of domestically abusing popstar Rihanna in 2009, and had a standoff at his house with LAPD in 2016 when a woman reported he had threatened her with a gun, is once again accused of battering a woman.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Brown is under investigation striking a woman after they argued in his home over the weekend. Police responded to his San Fernando Valley mansion last month to shut down a wild party on his 32nd birthday.
What is an Offensive Clue?
Daytime quiz show “Jeopardy!” came under fire for a clue about a medical condition some viewers called “misogynistic” and “incorrect.”
The clue read: “Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome is also known as Grinch Syndrome because this organ is too small.” The correct answer is “What is the heart.”
The condition, which mostly affects women and children actually isn’t characterized by having a small heart, rather an increased heart rate, and fans familiar with the condition immediately pointed out the inaccuracy of the clue.
“Pretty sure my POTS is not caused by having an abnormally small heart?” One watcher commented. “Otherwise I am certain the cardiologists would have mentioned this to me during my ultrasound.”
The Dysautonomia International, a non-profit that fundraises for the condition’s research, called on the show to apologize for using the “misogynistic” term. “Grinch syndrome is an offensive term,” the organization tweeted. “Can you imagine Jeopardy making light of cancer or MS patients with a “funny” name for their debilitating health condition?”
This appeared on Jeopardy tonight. Grinch syndrome is an offensive term. Can you imagine Jeopardy making light of cancer or MS patients with a "funny" name for their debilitating health condition? Not acceptable. We'd love to see real questions about the autonomic nervous system. pic.twitter.com/kqetij1Jwx

Emergency responders dramatically dove into a Japanese bay to rescue a nude “drowning woman, but soon discovered that the “victim” was actually a silicone sex doll.
