Netflix CEO Pledges $120 Million to HBCUs and United Negro College Fund

Netflix CEO Pledges $120 Million to HBCUs and United Negro College Fund

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and his wife Patty Quillin pledged to donate $120 million to Spelman and Morehouse College, and the United Negro College Fund.

“There are many good places to donate, but the [historically Black colleges and universities] are 150 years old, incredibly resilient, producing an amazing number of Black graduates,” Hastings said during an interview with CNBC on Monday. “We want to help draw attention to the HBCUs, to them being part of the solution for America, and for black children to aspire to.”

The donation comes after the growing outrage for racial equality since the death of George Floyd. On top of that, Black communities have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. “The amount of tragedy really did get us to focus and say, ‘let’s do something now that will be supportive of these great institutions and give people some sense of hope,’” Hastings continued. “This moment is not the first time that racism has reared its, you know, terribly ugly head.”

Ava DuVernay, Netflix Seek to Dismiss D.A.’s ‘When They See Us’ Defamation Lawsuit

Ava DuVernay, Netflix Seek to Dismiss D.A.'s 'When They See Us' Defamation Lawsuit

Ava DuVernay and Netflix are seeking to get the defamation lawsuit filed by former District Attorney, Linda Fairstein, tossed.

“Plaintiff’s claims fail under the First Amendment as a matter of law,” the document states on behalf of the renowned director, the streaming giant, and When They See Us producer/writer Attica Locke. “Material falsity is essential to any defamation claim and is an element Plaintiff must establish,” the motion states.

“Here, the Series is an artistic dramatization of controversial and contested historical events. Plaintiff’s complaint that the Series’ portrayal of her is “false” because it ‘depict[s] her at places where she never was’ and “puts words in her mouth” that ‘she never uttered’ is simply a non sequitur,” the motion adds.

In Fairstein’s legal swipe she claimed Ava DuVernay and the creators of When They See Us portrayed her as a “racist, unethical villain who is determined to jail innocent children of color at any cost.”

Future Announces Book and Netflix Movie

Future Announces Book and Netflix Movie

Future is back on the scene with the release of his new album, High Off Life.

He called up Apple Music to speak with Zane Lowe and they discussed his chemistry with Young Thug, collaborating with Travis Scott, and an upcoming book and Netflix movie.

The Atlanta rapper tapped the chemistry he has with Thugger on this project on songs like “Harlem Shake.” That’s my twin,” Future says of his fellow ATL artist. “There’s me and then there’s him. … When you mention Thug you mention me. It’s like one.”

When speaking on collaborating with Travis Scott Hendrixx commended his creativity. “Artistically, Travis, he’s on another level when it comes to being artistic and everything. Like, his whole vision, being engaged, the artwork, and just the core craft. He knows what he’s doing.”

But it looks like Future is finally ready to be a bit more vulnerable and tell his own story. “Right now, I got my book I’m working on,” he said. “My movie I’m working on. They’re going to able to find it on Netflix.” 

Check out the interview below:

Melyssa Ford Has Some Serious TIGER KING Questions She Needs Answered ASAP: “Did Carol Kill Her Husband + Feed Him To The Big Cats?”

Melyssa Ford Selfie Pic Smile Lipstick

Vixen Melyssa Ford has joined the “Tiger King” craze. The veteran model went online this week to share some geeky moments about Netflix’s must-watch mini-series.

Big Facts

On Monday, Ford hit up Instagram with a hilarious Joe Exotic-inspired meme. She took her fandom a few notches further by sharing a random pop quiz about some of the show’s biggest revelations.

“Anyone else watch #tigerking ?? 😳👀🤦🏽‍♀️🙄😬😳😳😳😳 Pop Quiz (cuz I need to talk to ppl about WHAT THE F*CK I JUST WATCHED!!!) What’s your thoughts on the following questions:

1. Did Carol kill her husband and feed him to the big cats?

2. Who set fire to the studio? 
3. Is Doc Antle harem a sex cult or is it a run of the mill polygamous situation?

4. Have you ever been to a chimp birthday party? 
5. Is Joe guilty or innocent of trying to have Carol rubbed out? 
Let’s debate…”

High-Key Details

Over the past few days, various hip-hop artists have co-signed Netflix’s must-see “Tiger King” mini-series. Social media has erupted with shout-outs and support for the show’s main star Joe Exotic.

👀🤔who the f*ck did this to me😠. i saw that Tiger sh*t, the man had 2 boy friends. got tired of a b*tch then killed her.lol”

Wait, There’s More

Joe Exotic has made a name for himself since Netflix released his “Tiger King” series. The seven-episode show ultimately reveals how he landed behind bars.

Given all that was revealed in Tiger King, you may be wondering what exactly Joe Exotic was ultimately charged with. In the end, he was found guilty of two counts of attempted murder-for-hire, eight counts of falsifying wildlife records, and nine counts of violation of the Endangered Species Act. As you can probably guess, Joe Exotic doesn’t think his prison sentence will last very long. He claims that “perjury took place and was ignored by all parties involved” in the lead-up to his arrest. Thus far, his claims have not amounted to much — he’s still in prison and will be for the foreseeable future. (Distractify)

Before You Go

The show detailed Joe’s close-knit bond with various zoo animals. Specifically, it detailed how he interacted with tons of large tigers.

The seven-episode true-crime series (now streaming) explores the life of Joe Exotic (born Joseph Schreibvogel), a man with an affinity for big cats, blonde mullets, guns and explosives. “Tiger King” examines Joe’s life at Oklahoma’s Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park (referred to as the G.W. Zoo) and his hatred for Carole Baskin, founder of Big Cat Rescue sanctuary in Tampa, Florida. Joe deemed Baskin a threat to his livelihood through her advocacy  of the Big Cat Public Safety Act, which aims to abolish ownership of big cats as pets and the practice of cub petting. (USA Today)

Before You Go: A few years ago, Drake dished on his decision to help bring “Top Boy” back to TV and to get personally involved.

Drake told The Hollywood Reporter in 2017 that he was captured by the depiction of London in the series. “And that human element drew me in,” he added. “I started just looking them up. Like, who are these people? Are these actors I should know? Are they just famous over there? I remember I hit Future, and I was just like, ‘This show is incredible.’” Partnering with Netflix, Drake brought together the original writing and directing team to create a follow-up. The series is written by Ronan Bennett alongside Daniel West, with director Yann Demange also returning along with producers Charles Steel and Alasdair Flind. (Radio Times)

After endearing himself to comic book fans across the globe as the Falcon in Marvel’s The Avengers, Mackie is set to continue his arse kickin’ ways in the highly anticipated second season to Netflix’s hit series Altered Carbon. Starring as the “re-sleeve” of Takeshi Kovacs (played by Koel Kinnaman in the prior season), the preview clip features Kovacs in his new skin (Mackie) while guns and explosions fill in the rest of the teaser.

Fans have been eagerly waiting for two years to see how Netflix continues to properly adapt Richard K. Morgan’s original 2002 cyberpunk novel to film, so they’d better not f*ck this up after a stellar first season.

Peep the teaser trailer below and let us know if you’ll be checking the second season to Altered Carbon when it drops on February 27.

Aaron Hernandez’s Ex-Fiance Opens Up About His Sexuality in Upcoming Interview

Aaron Hernandez was in the headlines for the past few weeks following the debut of the Netflix docu-series, Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez. The project raised topics like the ex-NFL star’s experience with CTE and his possible sexuality.

Hernandez’s fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, spoke out for the first time since the release of the doc. “If he did feel that way or if he felt the urge, I wish that I was told. I wish that he would’ve told me ’cause I wouldn’t — I would not have loved him any differently. I would’ve understood. It’s not shameful and I don’t think anybody should feel shameful about who they are inside, regardless of who they love. I think, I think it’s a beautiful thing,” she told ABC News’ Amy Robach. “I wish I was able to tell him that.”

In the upcoming interview which is scheduled to air on Wednesday, she spoke about Hernandez’s alleged childhood lover, Dennis Sansoucie.

Sansoucie claimed that he engaged in a sexual relationship with Aaron Hernandez when they were in High School. Jenkins said she knows of Sansoucie, but they weren’t close during Aaron’s adult life.
