What glitters isn’t always gold. especially when it comes to social media. A style insider is facing prison time for running a swipes scam.

Bossip is reporting that a fashion blogger was arrested for racking up thousands of dollars worth of purchases on someone else’s good name. Using the handle @simplicityxstyle, Shaniqua Jordan has grown a credible online following by posting chic photos of herself sporting very well put together ensembles. Another ingredient to her sauce are the purposely obvious luxury brand logos.

Considering her profile is absent from any repeated wears a natural question to ask is where is she getting all this money? Well Connecticut police figured it out, allegedly.

Excuse me did you say 76 degrees ? Here I come …

A post shared by Shaniqua J. (@simplicityxstyle) on

In 2017 Jordan was arrested for using a Stamford woman’s debit card to make unlawful purchases. Apparently, the Brooklyn native racked up $3,300 dollars worth of goods without getting noticed. It wasn’t until she ordered an $18,000 Rolex watch from a retailer in California and asked it to be shipped to a FedEx facility near the victim’s household. The unusual request concerned the store thus they alerted local police. The lawmen asked they just ship an empty box and promptly arrested the scammer when she showed up to claim the delivery with a false driver’s license.

Louis Farrakhan Banned From Facebook & Instagram Alongside Right-Wing Nutballs

Nipsey Hussle's Celebration Of Life - Inside

Facebook and Instagram took measures to ban Min. Louis Farrakhan from its social media services, lumping him with a pair of Right-Wing extremists who also were banned. Joining Farrakhan on the outs with FB and IG are Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos.

Politico reports:

Facebook Thursday banned from its flagship social network and its subsidiary Instagram the Infowars site and its leader Alex Jones, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, saying their presence on the sites violated its policies against dangerous individuals and organizations.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

Facebook last August cited violations of community standards in removing pages belonging to Jones and Infowars, notorious for peddling unfounded conspiracy theories. The action came amid a flurry of suspensions and content take-downs for Jones and Infowars, which were also booted from Google-owned YouTube, Twitter and other platforms.

The outlet adds that the services also banned Infowars contributor and “New Right” advocate Paul Joseph Watson, and right-wing activist Laura Loomer.

In 2018, Facebook removed a video of Farrakhan referring to Jews as “termites.”

Meek Mill Finally Returns To IG + Pays Respect To Fallen Hero

Meek Mill

Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill is back-back. The hip-hop star has returned to Instagram following a mini-hiatus from the social media giant.

On Tuesday, MM went to IG with a salute to late hip-hop artist Nipsey Hussle.

Last week, Meek hit up Twitter to explain why he suddenly deactivated his IG account.

Earlier this month, buzz developed about Meek pulling the plug on IG.

Meek Mill has had enough. The Philadelphia rapper is no stranger to social media causing tension in both his personal and professional life, and most recently, he decided to pull the plug on Instagram. Following his release from prison last April, Meek has seemingly found a balance between using his platform for interacting with fans, promoting his social justice initiative work and sharing some lighthearted personal thoughts. However, something may have struck a nerve over the weekend, leading him to deactivate his Instagram account. (REVOLT TV)

Last month, Meek Milly shared a few positive effects about Instagram going down worldwide for a few hours.

Diddy Confesses To Crying For More Than Three Hours Straight, Says It “Felt Great”

View this post on Instagram

A message from L O V E 🖤

A post shared by Diddy (@diddy) on

It’s no secret Diddy has been going through a lot as of late. He needs our support now more than ever.

After the mother of his children, Kim Porter, passed away, Diddy has been openly telling the public he messed up by never marrying her. The death of Nipsey Hussle has also affected the music mogul on a deep level, seeing as they worked closely together on the late rapper’s recent, and only, studio album Victory Lap.

In a new post, Diddy reveals he’s spent hours crying so he could “let that sh*t out.”

“I ain’t gonna lie, I been holding a lot of sh*t in lately. I just had a three-and-a-half-hour cry and let it all out — or as much as I could tap into,” he told his followers. “And that sh*t felt great. Sometimes you gotta let that sh*t out.”

Peep his full message up top and keep Diddy in your prayers.

[WATCH] Man On IG Claims To Be The Shooter In Nipsey Hussle Assassination

Whether this is real or fake, this person just put themselves in the most regrettable position they’ll ever be in their life.

Yesterday, an individual went on Instagram Live alleging to be the shooter in the killing of Nipsey Hussle yesterday in front of his store in broad daylight in Los Angeles.

Appearing on IG, allegedly with another rapper who doesn’t believe his claim, the young Black man goes on to say he shot Nipsey and he still had the gun in the seat. He goes on to say that he he shot the Victory Lap rapper moments after asking him the infamous, “where you from?”

This person has not been apprehended for questioning, but the streets and the authorities definitely have some questions for him.

Lil Uzi Vert Gives His Instagram Page Thanos Treatment + Deletes Everything

Lil Uzi Vert

Philadelphia rapper Lil Uzi Vert looks like he might be getting more than just a fresh start with Roc Nation managing him. The hip-hop star has wiped his entire Instagram page clean days after powering up with rap icon JAY-Z‘s team.

As of Thursday morning, Uzi Vert’s account remains verified but no longer shows any posts.

Earlier in the week, reports emerged about Uzi Vert officially joining forces with Roc Nation.

The Philly rapper has inked a deal with Roc Nation where Jay-Z’s company will exclusively handle his management. The deal took place a couple of weeks ago, a source close to the rapper has confirmed with HHNM. A couple of months ago, he threatened to quit music for good but kept teasing that he’s ready to put out his old stuff for the fans. Two weeks ago, he spoke on the struggles with his label, Generation Now and revealed that he’s willing to drop his album for free on Soundcloud. (Hip Hop N More)

Last weekend, footage surfaced of Uzi Vert shouting out Roc Nation during a studio session.

This week, hip-hop veterans Fabolous and Jadakiss talked about the ills of social media.

Kodak Black Shuts Down His Instagram After Comparing Himself To 2Pac, Biggie And Nas

There are certain things you cannot say on social media and get away with it.

Kodak Black had to go as far as shutting down his IG page after making the erroneous statement that he was on the same level as legendary rappers the late 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G and Nas.

Last week on his IG Live, the South Florida rapper began his rant, stating, “I’m the hardest rapper in the game, I promise.”

He added, “Like, when you talk ‘bout me, you should put me in a category of like ‘Pac, B.I.G, Nas, den ni**as, you feel me? Like really listen to my shit. I don’t care about how I act, like, on the ‘Gram.”

Even though Black 2016 release, Lil Big Pac, showed a spoof cover of Biggie’s Ready To Die LP, people aren’t even ready to mention Kodak’s name in the same sentence as the G.O.A.T.s.

One user wrote, “Cant believe Kodak Black compares himself to 2pac, Biggie and Nas. He’s not in the rap legendary status at all. He’s just garbage,” while another said, “He’s not even in Chingy, Fabolous or Lloyd Banks level.”

Odell Beckham Jr. Says He’s Fading To Black But Changes His Mind?

Odell Beckham Jr. Mom

NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr. has a lot of fans scratching their heads. The Cleveland Browns wide receiver announced a mini-hiatus from the world this week in an emotionally-driven message and then – hours later – deleted it.

According to reports, Odelly made the groundbreaking announcement but deleted the Instagram post by Tuesday afternoon.

Beckham announced Tuesday morning on Instagram he’s going “dark” during vacation so he can reflect on his life amid changes. Of course, one major change is Beckham leaving the New York Giants for the Browns after last week’s blockbuster trade. Beckham’s Instagram post was deleted more than three hours after it had been published. (Ohio)

On Tuesday, OBJ hit up Instagram to let fans know he’s pulling the plug on his timeline for the next few days.

Over the weekend, Odell released a slew of Browns-inspired posts including one of himself and quarterback Baker Mayfield in a Rocky meme.

Last Thursday, Beckham hit up Instagram with a must-read note to the New York Giants and diehard fans acknowledging his time in the Big Apple.
