The Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors are heading towards the 2019 NBA Finals with a bit of mild controversy due to a famous neighbor of ours to the north. Smash Mouth, the veteran Bay Area band that first hit big two decades ago, tweeted out a warning to Drake and said that he’d better cool off his usual sideline antics.

“Yo @drake When the ball is in-play sit the FCK down! That aint gonna fly in Oakland! #GlorifiedMascot,” Read a tweet Sunday (May 26) from the band’s Twitter account with the Warriors, Raptors, NBA, and Warriors superfan E-40 tagged.

The band’s tweet got under the skin of NBA Twitter, Drake fans, and Raptors fans alike with all named going at the band. Smash Mouth’s account tweeted out a second tweet after outlets began reporting on their initial tweet, doubling down on their stances.

We’ve collected some of the responses below. The NBA Finals kick off on Thursday (May 30) at 9:30 PM EST.

Across the nation, laws are being introduced that could potentially upend the landmark U.S. Supreme Court, “Roe v. Wade” and impact a woman’s right to have an abortion. Of the many detractors of the impending laws, Offset sounded off via Twitter and likened Alabama’s proposal to slavery.

“New laws is slavory,” Offset tweeted on Saturday (May 18). “To force a rape victim to keep a child is SLAVORY IM NOT PROUD TO SAY IM FROM AMERICA!!!”

He is joined by other stars such as Rihanna, Janelle Monae, and more. Salute to Offset for taking a stand.

Spotify Celebrates Megan Thee Stallion's New Album

Source: Bob Levey / Getty

Megan Thee Stallion is unquestionably the hottest rapper in the game right now without a need to mention her gender. The 24-year-old star just released her debut album Fever, and Twitter is going all the way up for “Hot Girl Meg,” her alter ego for the project.

Across 14 tracks, Megan Thee Stallion shows and proves that while she does tout a sexier image, there is still high-level rapping to be witnessed on the album. The Houston native kept it low on the features and carries the bulk of the album with Juicy J showing up for “Simon Says” and DaBaby rocking with Megan on “Cash Sh*t.”

Producers include LilJuMadeDaBeat, Juicy J, DJ Chose, DJ WillAye, Project Pat, Prolivik Beeats, and Supah Mario.

Check out the reactions to Megan Thee Stallion’s Fever below.

Racist White Man Gets Blessed With Fists Of Fury By Black Woman On Mother’s Day [Video]

Stock market broker after a beating

He tried it, and failed. A racist white man made a scene at a sushi spot in Los Angeles, and caught some fists to his face by a Black woman as a consequence.

By no means do we ever condone violence, but we totally understand.

Raw Story reports how a user named @IvanCyclist posted a video of and described the incident.

“Took my mom out to Sushi for Mother’s Day in LA. It was going great until a crazy racist white man started trouble and ended calling a black man “Monkey Man”… Thankfully a nearby woman delivers justice 👊🏽

It’s 2019 and racism still exists, disgusting.

RT to expose him,” he wrote in the tweet.

In the video, a scuffle is seen after the Irate Racist White Guy by the door refuses to leave the restaurant. Someone is heard saying “Get the f*ck out” and that’s when IRWG gets extra bold. Patrons are hold telling someone he called “Monkey Man” off camera that, “It’s not worth it.”

But what sticks out is that Black woman begins reigning down efficient blows to the crackpot’s noggin, she even got a kick in as he was pushed out of the restaurant. Reportedly, the IRWG was hit with four citations while the Black woman caught one citation. We expect the latter’s to be dropped for obvious reasons.

Check back as we will definitely post the name of the racist when he is inevitable exposed. Until then, watch him catch the hands in the video below, as well as a full rundown after.

Eating On DC Metro While Black: Author Natasha Tynes Snitched On Metro Employee Eating On Train, Twitter Dragging Is Exquisite

Washington METRO

Source: Bill Clark / Getty

Author Natasha Tynes is enduring a dragging of immense proportions after she took time out of her commute in Washington, D.C.’s Metro system to bother a Black woman. Tynes was miffed that an employee for the transit authority was eating breakfast on a train and took to social media to blast the woman, but folks on Twitter called foul in unison over Tynes’ unfair attack.

Tynes, who we should note is a non-Black woman of color, identifies as Jordanian-American, works for the World Bank and the IFC as its social media lead. In a now-deleted tweet, Tynes took a photo of the Black woman Metro employee and tagged not only WMATA, the lead authority for the service, but also snarky blog Unsuck DC Metro, which used to be an irreverent look at the transit system’s myriad issues but now mirrors the same tone as some of the gentrifying young white professionals infiltrating the region.

In the past 24 hours or so, Tynes appears to be close to losing her book contract and publishing deal, this after she offered perhaps the weakest non-apology apology tweet ever before locking her account. However, Twitter is keeping up the pressure and we’ve collected some of the responses below.

Arm & A Leg: Man Sparks Goofy Debate About Washing Legs In Shower On Twitter

Let me just freshen up real quick

Source: LumiNola / Getty

Twitter is often a minefield of nonsensical debates, and a question posed by one man had users on the social media platform debating the finer merits of washing one’s legs in the shower. Amazingly enough, the topic, excuse the pun, has legs and sparked a discussion that we’re not entirely sure lands anyone on a solid end result.

Conor Arpwel, who tweets under the handle @Arpwel, posed an innocent enough question to the timeline Thursday (May 9) that one can view below.

With well over 59,000 votes and six days left for voting, Arpwel’s question has gotten under some folks’ skin somehow. This was true for Twitter user @MizTeeFranklin, who took notice of Washington Post Express writer Sarah Kelly’s response to Arpwel’s question, which after some examination of her account, appeared to be a joke. This is not a diss towards @MizTeeFranklin as we agree not washing a fundamental part of your body is indeed quite nasty.

At any rate, it appears that Arpwel was just having a little Twitter fun and had no idea that his question would incite such outrage. We’ve collected some of the responses from Twitter below.

Azealia Banks & Vince Staples Battle On Twitter Over Nixed Collab

2019 Canadian Music Week

Source: Isaiah Trickey / Getty

Azealia Banks has all the rapping talent in the free world and it can’t be denied. However, she’ll go down in infamy as an artist who can’t seem to get out of her own way as evidenced by a weird online beef with Vince Staples that went nowhere fast.

This “beef” has a lot of moving parts so we’re going to go slow. It all started with Banks mentioning Staples in what seemed to be a random thought as she was embroiled in a battle with the LGBTQ community over abortion rights.

“Ugh I want my life to change . I would much rather be in a date with Vince Staples then arguing with gays about anything,” Banks tweeted on Thursday (May 9).

She added in another tweet, “But okay frfr … When are the gays gonna hook me up with Vince Staples what is the tea.”

This led to a rather long exchange between the pair which we’ve listed below. What’s funny about the whole thing is Staples is clearly down to work with Banks but she seems hellbent on making an issue where this wasn’t one.

What say you, readers? Is Azealia Banks taking the right stance on this? Was Vince Staples out of line? Sound off in the comments.

We think you all get the point now. Head over to Banks’ Twitter timeline for more of the drama.
