Director Spike Lee is using his editing skills and social media platform to shed light on the fatal chokehold forced apon a man named Eric Gardner by the NYPD as they tried to arrest him, comparing it to a scene straight from one of his movies. See Spike’s controversial clip inside…
Police brutality has become a hot topic in the media lately with the multitude of camera phone videos capturing police violating the rights of the very citizens they are hired to protect.
Recently, a video went viral of the NYPD arresting a black man named Eric Gardner for allegedly selling single cigarettes illegally. Officers placed Eric in a deadly chokehold (which most believe was completey unnecessary), which resulted in him losing his life.
Director Spike Lee came across the video footage of Eric being assaulted by the NYPD and it was parallel to a scene directly from one of the classics he wrote and starred in, “Do The Right Thing.”
In the movie, Radio Raheem (who blasts Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power” on his boombox throughout the film) is restrained by police in a deadly chokehold that ultimately takes his life. The same exact thing happened to Eric Garner last week.
So Spike made a clip showing the chiling similarities in the fatal chokehold used on Eric Gardner and Radio Raheem.
Check out the clip below, but we must WARN you it is very disturbing:
Finally, some good news for Sherri Shepherd. In one of the TWO court battles she’s currently involved in, a judge has rejected her ex-husband Jeffrey Tarpley's petition for custody of their nine-year-old son. Deets inside…
They say when it rains, it pours. BUT…after the rain comes the rainbow.
Former “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd can cross one major thing off of her significantly important to-do list. And that’s to keep custody of her nine-year-old son, Jeffrey (above).
On Monday, Sherri and her ex-husband Jeffrey Tarpley appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court for a hearing to establish who would be awarded physical custody of their son. Luckily for talk show host, her ex-husband’s petition for temporary custody was denied and their son will remain with his mother.
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Judge Michelle Williams ruled against Tarpley's request, citing that "there has not been a material change in circumstances.”
Bow Wow sure seems to enjoy sharing his sexcapades with the world. Find out what he said about his ex-girlfriends Ciara and Angela Simmons' performances in the bedroom when you go inside…
You would think the maturity level would have gone up just a notch when Bow Wow "changed" his stage name to Shad Moss. But, it seems boys will be boys. For some reason, the rapper-turned-TV host doesn't mind sharing what he has going on behind closed doors. Remember when he confirmed his “list,” revealing whether or not he smashed Ciara, Angela Simmons and many others? Sighs...
Well, Shad is back to kissing and telling and he's dishing on his two "main ex's" Ciara and Angela Simmons. “Mr. 106 & Park” took a break from his BET hosting gig to make an appearance on Nick Cannons’ “Wild ‘N Out” show on MTV. During a game of “Plead the Fif,” Shad was asked “Who gives the best head…Ciara or Rev’s Run daughter [Angela Simmons]”
Nick even tried to convince Shad to plead the fifth, but he took the opportunity to dish on the intimate happenings from his previous relationships.
“Well at one time they both was my woman, correct? So if you put one and one together I mean…of course we must have been doing the do if they was my women, correct? Well then I might as well keep it even. They both is mighty, mighty…mighty swell.”
