Reporter In Hot Water
A reporter in New Jersey is in hot water after he said some questionable things. The reporter was talking about a police officer who was shot after trying to stop an armed robbery and then said anti cop mentality in areas like my hometown Jersey City, Newark (where I also lived), Paterson and Trenton make the polices job very difficult. The reporter then said black male youths "growing up without fathers" were to blame for spreading an "anti cop" mentality throughout inner-city neighborhoods across the country. They suspended him and tried to re-assign him to non-news pieces and he declined. So he no longer works at that TV station.

Seth McFarlene Sued
We all love Ted. He’s the cute, fluffy Teddy Bear that has a dirty mouth and does things he’s not suppose to do. Well a company is claiming that the creator of Ted, Seth McFarlene stole idea for the character from them. Bengal Mangle Productions claims it created a screenplay called "Acting School Academy" based on a teddy bear named Charlie who lives in a human world. The screenplay became a web series that was a big hit on YouTube, FunnyorDie and others. The Production company does NOT claim it had any dealings with MacFarlane, but alleges there's no way he didn't know about it since Charlie was such a hit. The lawsuit claims Ted's characteristics are very similar to Charlie's. Ted was very profitable for Seth McFarlene, so we’ll see how this plays out in court.

Wu Tang Affiliate That Cut His Penis Off Does First Interview
Andre Johnson aka "Christ Bearer" aka The Wu Tang affiliate that cut his penis off has done an interview with E and explained that’s going on with him. He said, “I cut it off because that was the root of all problems. My solution to the problem was the realization that sex is for mortals and I am a god. Those kinds of activities got me into trouble and I came here to be a god.” Then he says the doctor’s weren’t able to repair anything, but that he still gets aroused with the little bit he has. He said and I quote “It’s not the size of the prize, it’s the motion in the ocean.” I can’t
