Kanye West Explains 'Britney Spears' Tweet, Lashes Out At MSNBC

It all started with an innocent joke, "Yo Britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z's single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL," tweeted Kanye West late last week after it was announced that Britney’s new single “Hold It Against Me” had taken the number spot on the iTunes singles chart.

Most felt the comic relief in Ye’s digital thought, but after news station MSNBC created an article implicating West as the culprit for attempting to start a “Twitter war” with Spears, the outspoken rapper launched a fury of tweets explaining himself. Here’s what went down:

The cast of In Living Color will reportedly unite for a special event at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. The event will be held as part of the festival's TV program, which celebrates anniversaries and milestones.

The event will consist of a screening of the comedy series' 1990 pilot episode followed by a sit down with the original cast members and crew where they will discuss the show's impact on television and culture. Creator Keenen Ivory Wayans and costars Shawn Wayans, Kim Wayans, Tommy Davidson, David Alan Grier, and Rosie Perez are all expected to attend.

This is the first time a majority of the cast has publicly reunited in nearly seven years. The ensemble previously gathered in 2012 to receive TV Land's "Groundbreaking Award" at the network's annual awards show

In Living Color ran for four years from 1990 to 1994 on Fox. The ground-breaking series followed a similar format to Saturday Night Live but featured a predominantly black cast. It was also the starting point for a number of stars including Jim Carrey, Jennifer Lopez, Rosie Perez, David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx, and more.

Las Vegas Cop Arrested For Demeaning Recordings Of Suspects

A Las Vegas police officer faces charges of misconduct after making racist and homophobic comments and sharing humiliating videos of suspects with friends. Some of the videos include a recording of male genitalia and images of officer Rachel Sorkow commanding a mentally ill person to dance.

According to KVVU, Sorkow was charged with multiple crimes in the past two years, including researching arrest records and license plates for her friends' partners. She is also accused of using the N-word.

Police officers found recordings of four people who were described as "in her control as a police officer." One video showed a man with a tear in his pants, which after kicking a police car resulted in the exposure of his genitalia. Sorkow instructed the man to keep kicking the police car while recording the video that she later distributed to her friends.

There are also reports that the officer responded to a call for a mentally ill man wearing two dresses with his hair in pigtails. In the video, Sorkow can be heard saying, "I just want to see you Dougie and twerk and then we're good." He starts dancing and she tells him, "Yea! Get it again, one more time."

Other videos revealed the law enforcement official placing gummy bears into the mouth of a handcuffed person while making baby airplane feeding noises.

An investigation into Sorkow began in Sept. 2018, when information about her came out of another case involving a person on parole.

The 29-year-old worked in the Community Policing Division in Metro's Northeast Area Command but was "relieved of duty" with pay on Dec. 4, 2018, while the investigation was ongoing.

Tyler Perry Helps Family Of Woman Killed In Bank Shooting

Tyler Perry has stepped in to help the family of Georgia mom Tynesha Evans, who was killed in a bank shooting.

According to WSB-TV, Perry offered to settle the family's debt to prevent eviction. The filmmaker also arranged for the body of the slain mother to be sent to Wisconsin for burial in her home state. Additionally, Perry offered to pay tuition for Evans' 18-year-old daughter, who received admission to Spelman College to prevent her from dropping out.

Evans was killed Saturday morning (March 16) outside a bank by her boyfriend Othniel Inniss, a 58-year-old man who is currently in police custody.

The 45-year-old was a full-time health care worker and author, and mother to four children, two of whom are still underage. Evans' 14-year-old Shakemia Turner referred to the Madea creator as "an angel on earth."

Perry's offer to pay rent for the grieving family was initially met with complications when the apartment complex refused to accept his payment.

This is unbelievable! I just got off the phone w/ ⁦@tylerperry⁩ He just tried to pay six months of rent for grieving family, but apartment management is refusing to take his money. We’re working to get answers https://t.co/dkkLKzHov7
