#Trump supporter and Gun rights advocate #KaitlinBennett says she faced 'riot' at #OhioUniversity, wants President Trump to strip school's funding. Bennett is best known for her viral photos on Kent State University's campus, where she posed with her gun and graduation cap in 2018.

Update: she just tweeted: I will absolutely be returning to @ohiou's campus again, and next time I'll bring an army of gun owners for an open carry walk through campus. You can't keep us away and you can't keep us silent. Just like Donald Trump, we will always win.

Ice Cube Calls Out NBA All-Star Game For Copying His Big3 League’s No Clock Rule - Written by: @RockyHarrisTV
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#IceCube is calling out the NBA All-Star event after it copied a rule from his Big3 basketball league. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Sunday, the NBA All-Star game took place and featured a new model format, changing how the game is played. However, one of the rules, which includes removing the running clock, is one of Cube’s guidelines in his professional basketball league Big3
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The NBA made an announcement a few weeks back saying the All-Star format would be changed. Every quarter of the game will turn into a mini-game for charity, and in the final quarter, the clock will be removed, and teams will play until one reaches a target score, Revolt reports. The scores were then reset to zero at the start of the second and third quarters, then restored at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cube called out the similarity by retweeting one of the NBA’s tweets about how its changed the gameplay. “Oh, really? Where should I send my invoice?" Instead of fighting against the clock, Cube’s Big3 no clock rule allowed teams to play until one reaches a winning score. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cube went on say he helped the NBA. "The forward-thinking of ⁦@thebig3 is taking our credit for helping the ⁦@NBA make the 4thQ of yesterday’s ASG one to remember," he posted. "Many will try to pull the Elam Rule out their asses, but we proved in 2017 that no game clock is the future. #nogarbageminutes."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#MichaelRapaport came to Cube’s defense but was shot down by amateur 3 on 3 league, Hoop It Up, who wrote in a tweet that they’ve “been playing without a game clock since 1989 but ok," they tweeted. Ice Cube responded, "Amateur basketball has been doing it forever, but we’re talking about the professionals, homie..."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz founded the Big3 league in 2017. The league will be heading in its fourth season with heavy-hitter NBA players, including #AllenIverson, #RashardLewis, #JoeJohnson, #JasonTerry, #StephenJackson and more.

“The Chi” Actress Tiffany Boone Opens Up About Leaving Show: “You Don’t Carelessly Leave A ’Hit Show’” - Written by: @RockyHarrisTV
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“The Chi” actress #TiffanyBoone is breaking her silence about her departure from the show, following her harassment allegations against her co-star #JasonMitchell.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Boone quit #TheChi back in November 2018, and Mitchell was fired from the show show last May after allegations against him surfaced, which included intimidation and abuse claims from Boone and showrunner #AyannaFloydDavis. In addition to ”The Chi,” Mitchell was also let go from the Netflix film “Desperados” after several actresses from the show accused him of harassment. Ultimately, Mitchell was dropped by his representatives as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Monday, Boone took to Instagram to address her exit. “You don’t carelessly leave a ‘hit show’ that is praised by your community. I deeply love Chicago and the people of that city who have embraced me. I felt honored and privileged to be part of telling their story. The weight of what I was leaving behind felt like a ton, but the weight of my responsibility to speak up was even heavier.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Boone said she was skeptical about leaving “The Chi. “There were people who questioned my decision. How could I be sure I would work again, especially on a project of that magnitude? I wasn’t sure, but I had faith that once I took that leap, I could be guided wherever I was supposed to go.” And she did go on to work, in several highly-anticipated shows, including  the new Amazon series from #JordanPeele “Hunters,” and the Hulu miniseries “Little Fires Everywhere.”

Jordyn Woods Has Officially Moved On From The Tristan Thompson Scandal: “She’s Going To Let It Be What It Is” - written by @msjennyb
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One year after news surfaced of an alleged cheating scandal between #JordynWoods and #TristanThompson, the former #KarJenner family friend is laying the issue to rest, for good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Back in February 2019, Woods, #KylieJenner’s then-longtime best friend, was accused of hooking up with Thompson, #KhloeKardashian’s baby daddy. Though the Tristan and Khloe were not together at the time, the alleged incident ultimately ruined the family friendship between Woods and the KarJenners. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But now, it appears Woods has moved on, and according to sources, she has no interest in going back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Jordyn’s position now is she’s going to let it be what it is,” a Woods family friend told PEOPLE. “She said what she had to say.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although the 22-year-old model is no longer in touch with her ex-best friend, sources say she’s keeping herself occupied with work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“She’s working. She had a stint on a TV show, and she has a couple brand deals coming up,” the source added. “She’s not doing too, too much, but is staying busy.”

Black Model Refuses To Wear “Racist” Monkey Costume in FIT Fashion Show, Designer’s Concept Was To “Highlight Ugly Features Of The Body” - Written by: @RockyHarrisTV (📸 getty images)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A Black model is shunning the Fashion Institute of Technology's #NYFW runway show after refusing to wear a “racist” “monkey” costume.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The only trend that seems to be fashionable for some these days is gaslighting Black people through fashion. On Feb. 7, #AmyLefevre, was geared up to walk the runway when she was pressured by FIT designers to wear “racist” accessories like “monkey ears” and oversized lips as a look for one fashion company. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I stood there almost ready to break down, telling the staff that I felt incredibly uncomfortable with having to wear these pieces and that they were clearly racist,” Lefevre told the New York Post. “I was told that it was fine to feel uncomfortable for only 45 seconds.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lefevre has been modeling for four years and said that while she has experienced racism in her career, this moment was a breaking a point. “I was literally shaking. I could not control my emotions. My whole body was shaking. I have never felt like that in my life,” she said. “People of color are struggling too much in 2020 for the promoters not to have vetted and cleared accessories for the shows.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lefevre decided to walk the runway, but without the costume’s lips and ears. As soon as the show ended, Lefevre left. According to a press release, the event took place at Manhattan’s Pier59 Studios, and the look was created to portray the work of 10 alumni from FIT’s inaugural Master of Fine Arts class in fashion design. FIT professor and chair of the new MFA Fashion Design, #JonathanKyleFarmer, directed the show, and it was produced by #RichardThornn, creative director of British fashion production company NAMES LDN.
