NBA superstar LeBron James expressed remorse for tweeting “You’re next,” to the Ohio police officer who shot a knife-wielding teenager last month, provoking outrage from the law enforcement community. “I fueled the wrong conversation about Ma’Khia Bryant,” James tweeted Monday, “and I owe it to her and this movement to change it. Thank you to @fabiolacineas for educating us about Ma’Khia and her story and why this needs to be about her.”
Canceling Cancel Culture
Fashion Police host Kelly Osbourne spoke out against cancel culture in the wake of her mother Sharon’s departure from The Talk. “I don’t give a f–k about cancel culture. I don’t give a f–k about what anyone thinks about me in that sense. Like, if you think I’m a racist, fine. You think I’m a racist. I know who I am. I don’t care what you think of me,” Osbourne said. “The pendulum swung so far in one direction that it’s going to have to swing in the other for a little bit before we find some normal ground and we figure out what’s right and what’s wrong,”

Joe Exotic’s ex-husband claims their marriage was a publicity stunt to help the Tiger King get Netflix to make the hit docuseries. John Finlay says he was meth-addicted at the time of his three-way wedding to Exotic and has since found true love with his current wife Stormey. “The fake one was basically a publicity stunt so Joe could get his own reality TV series. This one was the real thing,” he admitted.
Coming Out For Court
A Manhattan judge ruled that an anonymous man who claims disgraced actor Kevin Spacey sexually abused him in the 80s when he was underage, cannot move forward with the lawsuit unless he reveals his identity. The man, only identified by the initials C.D., is seeking $40 million damages from Spacey and has recruited Broadway star Anthony Rapp as a co-defendant. Rapp claims Spacey made sexual advances against him when he was a teenager. The judge has given C.D.’s lawyers ten days to reveal his name in order for the case to proceed.
