Racist NYPD Officer Quits Following Protests

New York City activists got a late Christmas gift this week after hitting the streets on New Year’s Day to demand that Officer Michael Reynolds be fired for breaking into a black woman’s home in Nashville and hurling racial slurs at her back in 2018. On Thursday, the racist 26-year resigned from the force shortly after he was informed that he was to report to police headquarters so the NYPD could begin its disciplinary case against him. The Police Department said in a statement,

“He will receive no pension or health benefits, nor will he be allowed to carry a firearm.”

In July 2018 was in Tennessee for a Bachelor Party, Reynolds forced his way into a home (just doors away from the Airbnb that he and his officer friends had rented) where Conese Halliburton lived with her children. Security camera footage captured him threatening the family and using racial slurs. Reynolds spent 15 days in jail was sentenced to 3 years probation following the incident.

Even though his sentencing was weak AF considering the crime he commited was indeed a hate crime, at least now he’s jobless and gun less. Just shouldn’t have taken this long to get it done. SMH.

Birthday Baes: Jeezy Surprises Jeannie Mai With A Special Performance From Tevin Campbell

Jeannie Mai Gets A Birthday Serenade From Tevin Campbell

Jeezy is starting 2020 off strong by already going for Boyfriend of the Year.

After spending their first Christmas together just last week, the rapper and his girlfriend Jeannie Mai spent her birthday hand-in-hand, too. But Jeezy wasn’t just present at the party, he also made sure to get his girl the gift of a lifetime.

The Real co-host posted a video onto her Instagram page on Thursday, giving fans a look at her extravagant birthday celebration.  Footage from the festivies starts with Jeezy on the mic attempting to sing his rendition of “Happy Birthday” by Stevie Wonder. Soon, he cuts the song and admits that doesn’t have the best vocals. Instead, he brought out a veteran R&B star to do the honors : the one and only Tevin Campbell.

Campbell came out and surprised Jeannie by singing his hit, “Can We Talk?” The birthday girl dropped down to the floor in pure shock, later jumping up and down and wrapping her arms around Jeezy in an effort to thank him for the thoughtful gesture.

“@Jeezy baby,” Mai wrote in her IG caption. “Thank you for the bestest birthday gift….of you in my life ”

 

This song in particular seems to have a lot of significance in the couple’s relationship. A few weeks back, Jeannie had everyone screaming, “relationship goals” when she posted a video of her and Jeezy cruising down the street singing “Can We Talk?” to one another.

Clearly, they’re both big fans of the track and that just makes this birthday gift even more special.

Shoutout to Jeezy for doing it big in the name of his girlfriend.

In White Folks News: KISS Rocker Gene Simmons Puts Ice Cubes In His Cereal, Offends The Raisins In Potato Salad

Gene Simmons Puts Ice Cubes In His Cereal

The devil comes in many forms. Beware.

Only someone as evil and sinister as Beelzebub himself could conjure up such an ungodly recipe for breakfast.

Yesterday, Twitter erupted at the sight of KISS rock legend Gene Simmons’ public query about the different ways to eat cereal…

What in the name of Capt. Crunch is happening here?! We’re sorry but the idea of white people, who have historically been chided for their lack of food seasoning, attempting to season their CEREAL with ICE CUBES is so far beyond the pale that we’re having a REALLY hard time trusting their ability to make sound decisions.

Imagine if a white person who puts ice cubes in cereal were to become, we don’t know, say–President of the United States. Who KNOWNS what kind of trifling condiments Bernie Sanders is putting on his lobster roll (probably mustard, ew), or what disgusting desecration that Pete Buttigieg has been ladling onto his salads (probably tartar sauce, ew).

This MUST stop, people! For the love of God, have a conversation with the white people in your life. Vet their culinary choices, intervene and explain how dangerous they are to our country. If they don’t hear you or attempt to gaslight you about their eating habits, you may need to end that relationship. Get out…while you still can…
