Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, the African-American entrepreneurs at the heart of Starbucks‘ racism scandal, have spoken of the traumatic incident in their very first televised interview.

The friends were waiting to meet a business partner in one of the company’s stores when a member of staff called the police. To their horror, they were arrested.

Their crime? Not ordering anything from the menu.

It was just, ‘Get out, you have to leave. You’re not buying anything, so you shouldn’t be here.

Their story, via ‘Good Morning America‘ and Robin Roberts, below…

Netflix crime drama, ‘Seven Seconds,’ has been hailed one of its most daring projects yet.  Lauded by critics for its daringness to address the United States’ ongoing concern of police brutality and race relations, the series brought some seriously hard-hitting topics to the forefront of its conversation.

Led by Emmy-winning actress Regina King and Emmy-nominee Veena Sud, the program (which premiered in February 2018) may have been greeted with acclaim, but murmurs quickly rose indicating it probably would not be picked up for a season 2.

Netflix silenced the rumors today by confirming what fans feared was true:

Eva Longoria seemed to confirm that reports of bad blood on the ‘Desperate Housewives’ set were more factual than they were fictional during an interview with ‘Jimmy Kimmel.’

The actress was asked to share her feelings on a potential reboot of the show and responded by revealing that 99% of the show’s original cast were friends.

Khloe Kardashian has been juggling joy with jabs. For, she welcomed her first child within a week of partner Tristan Thompson being caught up in a cheating scandal – with two women.

Still, as is customary with celebrity baby births, all attention has turned to what the youngster has been named.

And with the Kardashian clan arguably renown for one-upping each other with the left-field-ness on that front (see: North, Saint, Chicago, Stormi), did Khloe buck the trend or embrace it?

Starbucks is in the middle of an enormous crisis.

Last week, the company was forced to assess the way in which it treats its African-American customers after two African-American men were forcefully removed from one of its stores by police.

Their supposed crime? Waiting for a friend.

For some reason, the comedian Kevin Hart decided to stand in the way of criticism the business was facing for not firing the store’s manager.

How Black Twitter has responded?

‘The Real Housewives Of Potomac’ are back!

Past instalments have seen etiquette serve as the center of conflict. However, the show’s third cycle sees drama between the Maryland matriarchs escalate like never before.

‘Potomac’ originals Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Ashley Darby, and Robyn Dixon are back in the mix. As is last season’s addition Monique Samuels.

With actress Erica Ash (‘Survivor’s Remorse’, ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’) tapped to topline, April 10th brought with it the unveiling of BET’s fast-paced legal drama, ‘In Contempt.’  Featuring a star-studded cast filled out by the likes of Richard Lawson, Christian Keyes, and more, the series sees Ash portray “Gwen Sullivan” (a talented, tough, and opinionated public defender whose passion for her work makes her hated among her colleagues in an unforgiving legal system).

Its premiere this week was greeted by a wealth of promising reviews from viewers who took to social media to express their approval and anticipation for what was to come.  Unfortunately, that fanfare was not reflected by the week’s end when official ratings were revealed.  Not even placing in the top 50 most watched shows of the night, ‘In Contempt’ managed to rake in….

Halle Berry‘s portrayal of infamous DC Comics character, “Catwoman” (in the 2004 movie of the same name), not only came as one of the franchise’s poorest box office performers, but also the most critically panned film of the Academy Award winner’s career.

Earning her a Golden Raspberry Award (also known as “Razzies”), the industry-wide disapproval of the flick – an opinion Berry implied she shared at the time – hasn’t hurt the actress’s career too bad (we’d like to think), but now the 51-year-old is changing her tune.

Speaking to a much-receptive audience at this week’s GLAAD awards, Halle did a little more than hint she’s not only interested in reprising the role, but that it deserves another scratch at the box office thanks to the mega-success of ‘Black Panther’ (currently the most successful superhero movie of all time).
