‘Family Guy’ Voice Actor Mike Henry Plans to Step Down as Cleveland Brown

'Family Guy' Voice Actor Mike Henry Plans to Step Down as Cleveland Brown

More and more voice actors who portray Black characters are exiting from their roles. Family Guy star, Mike Henry, announced his plans to step down as Cleveland Brown on Twitter.

“It’s been an honor to play Cleveland on Family Guy for 20 years,” he wrote. “I love this character, but persons of color should play characters of color. Therefore, I will be stepping down from the role.”

Henry has been riding with Family Guy since the first season in 1999. Aside from the main Black character on the show, Henry voiced Consuela, a Latina maid, Herbert, the perverted old man, and other supporting characters. Additionally, he voiced Cleveland’s stepson, Rallo Tubbs, on the spinoff series, The Cleveland Show.

The spinoff only aired for four seasons from 2009 to 2013.

Mike Henry joins the list of white voice actors who are rightfully abandoning their roles as Black animated characters including Jenny Slate, Kristen Bell.

[WATCH] Rick Rubin Interviews Mike D And Ad Rock Of The Beastie Boys For ‘Broken Record’ Podcast

RickRubin_BeastieBoys-1592886900-640×426

It’s been almost 35 years since the Beastie Boys released the all-time classic, Licensed to Ill. And while some of the record’s lyrics and antics sound dated, the album is still exceptional.

For Beastie Boys fans, Licensed to Ill is a glimpse into the lives of MCA, Ad-Rock, Mike D and their first DJ and producer Rick Rubin. Their debut album is a pastiche of inside jokes and musical inspiration pulled from the classic rock and hip-hop records they listened to in Rick’s college dorm room.

Rick recently connected with Mike D, Ad-Rock and Spike Jonze, who directed the new Beastie Boys documentary. With Spike playing moderator, they teleport back to the early ‘80s and talk about their lives leading up to the release of “Licensed to Ill.” It’s all here—the inspiration behind “Brass Monkey,” Rick’s infamous bubble machine, and why DJ Double R bailed on the Beastie’s first big break — opening up for Madonna on her 1985 tour. 

Rick and Adam Horovitz haven’t talked in about twenty years, and like most Zoom calls, their reunion gets off to a glitchy start. Mike D kicks things off.

[WATCH] Awkward Throwback Video Of Tupac Shakur and MTV Correspondent

Screen Shot 2020-06-16 at 3.11.34 PM

In this throwback video of Tupac Shakur, the rapper strolls the Venice Beach Boardwalk while being interviewed by MTV News Tabitha Soren who seemed lost and out of touch. This classic video from 1995 gives us a glimpse into the heart of Tupac who dropped tons of jewels in between the horrible invading questions. As a journalist myself I remember as a child watching MTV and wondering how these professionals were so uninformed and unprepared about the people they were interviewing.

This awkward video includes constant questions about why he didn’t have a father growing up, his mother being a crackhead, and repeatedly questioning if Tupac himself abused crack. Tabitha’s interrogating questions seemed more like someone being nosey and wanting gossip as opposed to showcasing her talents and his as well. The topics stayed negative and she unleashed a hail of questions that seemed amateur. In true Tupac fashion, he knocks it out the ballpark teaching Tabitha along the way. He stops to relate to fans walking by and continues to show that even at 21-years old he was powerful, educated and able to pull himself up and out of poverty as he shared himself with the world. Tupac was so eloquent with his words and vision and we love to watch his words captured on film.

Happy Birthday Tupac.

Young Buck is Requesting Donations From Fans On Instagram

Young-Buck-1-759×500

As one of the members of one of the most celebrated supergroups it’s virtually impossible to believe that any of G-Unit’s members, current or former, is having any sort of financial hardship. Now, it’s been confirmed controversial member Young Buck has resorted to asking for handouts from his fans on IG.

The Tennessee bred rapper recently filed for bankruptcy, noting that he’s been living off of his girlfriend. Bankruptcy documents show Buck owed the IRS $50,239 and another $106,000 in child support for two children. Now, the former 50 Cent affiliate has taken to Instagram to ask his fans to help him get back on his feet.

Young Buck listed his only source of income for 2019 was his mixtape sales including 10 Bricks, 10 Bullets, and 10 Bodies, which has brought in approximately $35,000.
