The video shows what appears to be Ola and Abel Osundairo placing the masks and a hat on the counter.

Smollett has claimed two men wearing a similar hat and masks attacked him on Jan. 29 in Streeterville, according to police. CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar made multiple phone calls and visited several stores to obtain the video.

The Osundairos were arrested last week, but later released without charges.

Sources have said the two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett. They said they were paid $3,500 to pour a chemical on the actor, and place a rope around his neck, while yelling racist and homophobic slurs.

Two sources said they used a ride share vehicle to get to the Streeterville neighborhood, and were caught on camera appearing nervous.

Sources say at least one of the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at Smollett’s request. The sources also say Smollett paid for the rope, which was purchased at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood the weekend of Jan. 25.

Sources said one of the brothers held the rope and poured bleach while the other wore a plain red hat and yelled slurs at Smollett.

The sources say Smollett directed the brothers to obtain the items and that the attack was supposed to happen before Jan. 29. The brothers told detectives the three men rehearsed the attack days prior to it happening.

Smollett repeatedly has denied staging the incident.

Meantime, Fox Television has denied rumors that Smollett is being written off of “Empire.”

“Jussie Smollett continues to be a consummate professional on set and as we have previously stated, he is not being written out of the show,” Fox spokeswoman Amy Bucknam stated in an email.

According to CBS Chicago reporter Charles De Mar, sources say Jussie told brothers exactly what to buy and it’s evidenced by countless phone calls.

We are not sure what is going on with Jussie’s story anymore, but this is all getting worse and worse by the moment. What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

Taking A Stand! Dolly Parton States “Of Course Black Lives Matter!”

Dolly Parton is nothing short of an icon. For over forty years she has reigned as the Queen of Country Music. Now, Ms. Parton is lending her voice to a greater cause, telling Billboard Magazine, “of course Black Lives Matter!”

In her wide ranging interview Billboard, Dolly addressed a number of social issues but made it clear she stands with the Black Lives Matter movement. While she has not attended the protests, she voiced her support. “I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen,” she said. “And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little White a**es are the only ones that matter? No!”

Dolly has however renamed a Civil War-themed dinner attraction at her theme parks in Missouri and Tennessee from “The Dixie Stampede” to “The Stampede” after she became aware of the meaning of “Dixie” and its Confederate ties. “There’s such a thing as innocent ignorance, and so many of us are guilty of that,” she told the magazine. “When they said ‘Dixie’ was an offensive word, I thought, ‘Well, I don’t want to offend anybody. This is a business. We’ll just call it The Stampede.’ As soon as you realize that [something] is a problem, you should fix it. Don’t be a dumba**. That’s where my heart is. I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose.”
We have to admit we are really proud of Dolly and her being so open with her stance. Also we have to admit we are Dolly Parton fans over here, “Nine To Five” and “Jolene” are constantly in rotation.
We really wish more stars of various backgrounds and “musical genres” would come forward and be on the right side of history. Thank you Dolly, your support is welcomed and needed. She has definitely earned her a plate at the cookout!

“#LizzoIsOverParty” Trends After Sexual Comments on Boy Bands, BTS & One Direction

Lizzo definitely has the “Juice” to do and say what she wants, but this time her comments–sexual ones–about popular boy bands, BTS and One Direction. Fans of the respective groups have made her the latest target of “cancel culture,” with the hashtag #LizzoIsOverParty.

Fans of BTS and One Direction were not happy with the singer after she made the following comments:

The drama started when One Direction fans thought Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, made a slight against Harry Styles.

In an old TikTok video, Lizzo suggestively sucks a chocolate popsicle while watching perform Styles onstage—the humorous video is laden with innuendo and is a nod to the playful and well-documented relationship between Styles and Lizzo.

However, some fans have deemed the joke “offensive,” hence the calls to “cancel” Lizzo making their way around Twitter, some veering into offensive territory themselves.

One angry tweet reads: “This isn’t for Lizzo’s body, it’s for her actions. She’s sexualizing every single man and that’s so f*****’ disgusting. Why can’t you understand the reason of this hashtag. If you support her you’re sick. PERIODT #LizzoIsOverParty.”

In response to the #LizzoIsOverParty hashtag doing the rounds, fans of the singer have been flooding the tag with positive messages praising her.

We have to say we are surprised that people are reacting this way to her comments. Many men–namely the current President of The United States–have made far more derogatory statements toward women without any real consequence. All of the members of One Direction and BTS are adults and furthermore, we are sure their own fans have been more sexual and graphic in correspondence to them than Lizzo ever was.

Cancel culture definitely is not losing any steam. We are just hoping that will not hurt her in the long run. Needless to stay we stand with Lizzo.

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).
