“Hooray for Kim K”–at least that is what her recent humanitarian efforts are making us say. In the last ninety days she helped free 17 prisoners  and now has headed, with her doctor in tow, to assist a newly freed man remove his facial tattoos. As we all know, where you get a tattoo can vastly alter others’ perception for you. For an ex-convict with facial tattoos his life chances to gain employment and work legally can be greatly reduced by his criminal history and appearance. Kim Kardashian seems to now be flexible her growing humanitarian clout by helping inmates any way she can.

Azaria Algarin of Charlotte, North Carolina, detailed how Kardashian West, 38, not only responded to a letter her brother Paul Algarin — who was incarcerated over the course of seven years — wrote to her while in prison, but the reality star also she flew in after the 2019 Met Gala to meet with him.⁣

“Recently my brother was released from central prison where he served an accumulation of 7 years,” Azaria captioned a post shared Tuesday, which featured a series of Instagram photos of her and her brother meeting Kardashian West and Kanye West. (Azaria has since deleted the caption.) “Throughout my brothers time in prison he shared his dreams, aspirations, and goals with me- I always thought some were unrealistic & silly.⁣”

“He asked me for Kim’s address so he could send her a letter & I rolled my eyes & never sent I,” Azaria added. “Eventually my mom sent it to him so he would stop harassing us.”

To Azaria’s surprise, Kardashian West responded — and then some.

In addition to taking the time to fly out to Charlotte, Kardashian West also brought her doctor with her to help start the procedure of removing 24-year-old Paul’s facial tattoos. ⁣

“Fast forward to yesterday. Kim flew in to CLT with her doctor to have lunch with us & start the procedure of removing my brothers face tattoos,” Azaria added. “Never in a million years did I think Kim would write him back (or even read his letter), fly in right after the met gala (not to mention her 4th baby is due at any minute), invest in our family & laugh / relate to us over the smallest things.”

“I’m so proud of my brother for taking steps in the right direction. Our relationship hasn’t been the easiest,” she admitted. “I pushed him away for years out of hurt for his absence, but yesterday was all the feels. I felt like we were children again & that he wasn’t gone for the last 7 years. Such a special day that I will forever cherish.”⁣⁣

We have nothing but applause for Kim and her recent work. People can talk about prison reform and rehabilitation but she is actually doing something about it. Kudos Kim, we think you will be one helluva lawyer!

Terry Crews has been embroiled in controversy thanks to his comments about the Black Lives Matter movement; likening it at times to promoting Black Supremacy.

In response, Black Twitter has released a number of parodies and memes on Terry Crews, some calling him an “Uncle Tom” and coon.

Terry Crews, in response to the controversy, has created his own–still offensive–acronym for coon in return, causing a new backlash from Black Twitter and proponents of Black Lives Matter.

The tweet shown, below, has coon listed as “C.O.O.N.” or “Conquer Our Own Negativity.”

Black Twitter’s greatest comedians came for him almost immediately:

We have to say we are really disappointed with Terry. “Coon” is highly offensive word used as a racial slur against Black people. One of his fans, that he retweeted, said it best:

Terry Crews please do better or just be quiet. We would suggest he hire an excellent BLACK publicist. We can recommend a few (glances at nails).

draya michele loses fenty x savage endoresement deal over megan thee stallion comments

Today, the internet speculated that Michele lost her Savage x Fenty endorsement in result of an internet blow up last week when the model made comments about Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez. ” I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot,” Michele jokingly said during an interview. This comment did not sit well with the internet as many jumped to Megan’s defense as well as the rapper tweeting her own personal response to Michele. “…Who tf jokes about getting shot…”

After Michele began to catch heat, she quickly apologized through social media, however this week, the consequences aren’t over. Earlier today, rumors began to fly on Twitter that the model has been dropped by Rihanna’s lingerie label Fenty x Savage. The sultry line has a stacked ambassador list including Megan Thee Stallion, which would ultimately serve as a conflict of interest.

Naturally, Black Twitter pointed to her comments’ being the reason she was let go and followed suit via social media with their sleuthing.

Also, and naturally again, the internet has its own comedic responses to these allegations.

We feel Fenty made the right decision to part ways with Draya–if this happened–and her comments on Megan were the reason. Rihanna is the owner of this company and brand, and a domestic violence survivor herself. Nothing Draya Michele said was funny, especially when women are dying every day in domestic violence disputes–three daily on average!

We are sure Draya will get picked up by another brand soon, but this should teach her that some things do not deserve commentary and can be costly to her.

Phaedra Parks

Parks — the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star who’s now on “Marriage Bootcamp” — is also a licensed funeral director and mortician, plus a top Atlanta lawyer, author and activist. She exclusively revealed on Wednesday to Page Six podcast “We Hear” of her mortuary biz: “Oh my gosh, it’s going great, didn’t you hear about that pandemic, girl? We are booming. Unfortunately. We have been jam-packed since the pandemic started.”

She said that she’s seen the devastation of the virus first-hand: “I’m not physician, however, I do have a mortuary and I’ll tell you this: Normally in the summer months, we’re waiting for a boating accident or a motorcycle crash, because otherwise, we’re pretty empty,” she said. “We are jam-packed. We are working like it’s our heaviest season, so… I tell people when they say, ‘It’s a joke, it’s not that big of a deal,’ well, let me put it to you in real terms, I’m getting 17 calls a day for pickups and that’s at one location. Last week, all of the people were under 59.”

This is quite the twist! We are glad to see Phaedra is thriving, but we hate to say it is thanks to victims of the COVID-19 pandemic. Still someone has to do something with these bodies and her Black owned business deserves to make all the money it can. After all Black Lives Matter even when they are dead?

What do you guys think? Would you ever use Phaedra Parks’ mortuary services for your own loved ones? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
