Kid Fury's Blog: Charlie Sheen Is #Losing

 


 

It was always cute but bizarre how my two country Jamaican parents were religious viewers of this show on CBS called Two and a Half Men. I didn’t really understand the hype, but I figured if my folks were ignoring calls for a show about Charlie Sheen’s support of his chubby nephew, then I should take a look. Just three months ago I finally got into the series and the fat sassy housekeeper, Berta. Of course, now the future of the show is up in the air. 

Charlie Sheen is practically the talk of the planet right now. His reckless interviews and nonsensical quotes are piling up on blogs, Twitter, Facebook and the like. The actor who has had a long history with drug and alcohol abuse is allegedly off of dope, which leads people to believe that his ass is just as crazy as a shit-house rat.

However he claims to be “winning." He doesn’t think anything is wrong with him and his “tiger blood." Now personally, when I come across a crackhead, I simply fan them away and deny them my hard-earned two dollars. It seems like a lot of Americans don’t have the same method for Carlos Estevez. His Twitter account shot past one million followers in 24 hours with the trending topics #tigerblood, #TeamSheen and #Winning alongside it.

People think this man’s antics are entertaining. They are staring in the face of a sick 45-year-old man that lost his kids, sleeps with two gutter ass coochie-selling heifers and claims he has “Adonis DNA." What the fuck is that?! 

Why do people find humor in the self-destruction of celebrities? Sure, it’s okay to make fun to a certain extent and we damn sure aren’t responsible for them, but it is clear when things are out of control. We don’t know what Charlie may do to himself or to others. Hell, at one point I thought he was going to yell “Attica” and bite off Meredith Vieira’s nose. What really kills me is that all the shits and giggles would cease if the man was found dead in a tub with a sacrificed wild cat. Then everyone would tweet R.I.P. and order Young Guns on Netflix. 

I’d love for people to stop encouraging this man’s behavior and enabling his winning mentality. Besides…if Charlie Sheen were Black, there would be far less fan support and most news stations would just wait for him to die. Yeah, I said it. Leave that looney ass fool alone and pray for him. I want Berta back!

Kevin Hart Debuts Trailer For Netflix Comedy Special 'Irresponsible'

Kevin Hart's latest comedy special, Kevin Hart: Irresponsible, is set to stream on Netflix for all to see. The one-hour stand-up, which was filmed before 15,000 people at the O2 Arena in London, England, will be Hart's fifth comedy special to hit the streaming site.

Piggybacking off of the recent scandals and mayhem, this special will focus on the 39-year-old's friends, family, travel, and a year full of antics that made him "irresponsible."

The stand-up's taping derives from his most recent tour through North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia which kicked off in March 2018, according to Rolling Stone. The special will be available on Netflix on April 2.

The last time Hart was a trending topic was for past tweets that were deemed homophobic and resulted in him canceling his hosting position at the Oscars. Maybe his content will include this unfortunate situation.

R. Kelly Is Seeking Permission To Perform Overseas In Order To Pay Child Support

R. Kelly's legal team is hoping a Cook County judge will grant the singer permission to travel overseas and perform in order to pay off his child support fees.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the 52-year-old singer signed a contract prior to his recent arrest, which outlined Kelly would perform three to five shows in Dubai and travel by private jet. He's slated to meet the royal family and the concert promoter is paying the expenses. Since being charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, Kelly cannot leave Illinois and has handed over his passport.

The singer's lawyer argues Kelly isn't a flight risk and as an entertainer should be granted permission to still work in order to pay off his debt.

“Mr. Kelly has a job that requires he be allowed to travel,” Steven Greenberg argued in Wednesday's court filing. “He cannot work, and consequently cannot make a living if he is confined to Illinois or even the United States.”

Greenberg noted Kelly isn't a flight risk and appeared in court in 2008 when he faced child pornography charges. The singer was found not guilty in that case.

“Denying him the opportunity to work would be a hardship on his children,” Greenberg later wrote.

In January, Lifetime aired a searing docuseries titled Surviving R. Kelly, which detailed years of sexual assault allegations from several of his alleged victims including Lisa Van Allen and ex-wife Andrea Kelly.

Kelly reportedly owes $161,000 in child support and alleges to have fallen on hard times due to renewed attacks. Last month the Grammy-award winner was indicted on charges he abused three girls and one woman over the span of a decade. The singer vehemently denied the accusations and pled not guilty.

Greenberg also attacked State's Attorney Kim Foxx's intentions behind pursuing Kelly's 10 counts.

“Most if not all of these allegations were all investigated years ago, and charges were not brought,” Greenberg wrote. “There is little if anything that has changed other than State’s Attorney’s desire to thrust herself into the spotlight of the #metoo movement.”

Tarana Burke Brings #MeToo Tour To HBCUs For Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Continuing her crusade against sexual assault, Tarana Burke will take her advocacy on a tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) across the country. Taking to Instagram to announce her #MeToo movement trek, the trip will begin in April.

"I’m so excited to finally announce this!! This has been a vision of mine for many, many years," Burke captioned the image. "Every year during April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) college campuses around the country turn their focus towards dealing with sexual violence but very little activity happens on HBCU campuses during SAAM even though we know it’s happening."

I’m SO EXCITED to finally announce this!! This has been a vision of mine for many, many years. Every year during April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) college campuses around the country turn their focus towards dealing with sexual violence but very little activity happens on HBCU campuses during SAAM even though we know it’s happening! I spoke at more than 70 schools in 2018 (I know, right! 😳) and only two HBCUs 😐 and I wanted to change that. This year I teamed up with my girl @fiyawata (the original @professionalblackgirl) to bring this right to the yard and provide a space for HBCU students to talk, vent, strategize and heal. 💕 Sponsored in part by @lifetimetv and @the.root #Repost @metoomvmt ・・・ We are so excited to announce that in exactly two weeks, we’ll be kicking off the ‘me too.’ HBCU Tour featuring ‘me too.’ founder Tarana Burke (@taranajaneen), scholar Dr. Yaba Blay (@fiyawata) and special guests! This multi-city initiative is centered around creating safety and accountability for students, faculty and administrators. We have partnered with some of the country’s finest institutions - Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs), to have real conversations about sexual assault and consent on campus. Each tour stop includes a strategic convening, a workshop for male-identifying individuals, and a fireside chat featuring a special guest.

Burke originally spoke at 70 college campuses during SAAM in 2018 but only visited two HBCUs. Partnering with Yaba Blay, the 45-year-old activist wants to "bring this right to the yard and provide a space for HBCU students to talk, vent, strategize and heal."

“While we are working in service to survivors of sexual violence from all walks of life,  it's always been about Black people, particularly Black women and girls. This tour is important because we know that Black women make up the majority of the student population at HBCUs," Burke said to Blavity. "The college tour is an extension of our work to center marginalized communities in the movement to end sexual violence wherever it exists.”

Each panel will include discussions, strategic sessions with campus leaders, and workshops for men, with a special conversation between Burke and Blay. The tour will be sponsored by The Root and Lifetime with free admission for the public. Howard University, the Atlanta University Center located at Clark Atlanta University, Alabama State University, North Carolina Central University, and Florida A&M University are among the locations.
