President Donald Trump got his wispy lacefront all in a tizzy after a whiny Twitter rant over the weekend took cheap shots at four junior congresswomen of color. The former business mogul doubled down on his comments and failed to apologize, prompting Twitter users to fire back at Comrade Cheeto with the #ObamaWasBetterAt hashtag.

The tag began trending on Twitter Tuesday morning (July 16) and users are artfully using the moment to call out Trump’s reign in the White House in comparison to former President Barack Obama. The stark differences between the two men are apparent to anyone living in America despite what side of the aisle you claim, and it’s telling that folks have long laundry lists of traits that Obama was definitely better than Trump at maintaining.

We’ve collected the best of the #ObamaWasBetterAt hashtag comments below.

Safaree Releases “12-Inch Anaconda” Sex Toy, Thirsty Twitter Is Astonished

Safaree's "No Regular Girl" Single Release

Safaree Samuels hit a major come up after scoring a seven-figure deal to get a mold made of his penis for a then-unreleased sex toy. Now, fans of Scaff Beezy’s meats can experience a simulated version of his package by way of his 12-Inch Anaconda dildo.

Sex toy company Doc Johnson unveiled an exclusive first look at Safaree’s plastic penis prop via Instagram, stating that they’ll be showing off the new product at an upcoming trade show.

Some are speculating Safaree using the anaconda name is a slight jab at ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj, who had a song with the same name. Porn star Rico Strong dropped a comment on Doc Johnson’s page, slamming the company for not employing an actual adult entertainer, with Strong also saying Safaree is lying about having the inches listed on the package.

From IG:

Crazy y’all gave. a rapper wait. A reality show star a dildo deal But not a actual famous porn star veteran. with a 13 inch natural dic and let’s be Real Y’all teaching with that 12 shit for safaree we seen the tape. It’s a cool 9

Pause.

The thirst, and of course a little bit of slander, is real on Twitter and we’ve collected some of the reactions below.

Black Actress Lashana Lynch Is Reportedly The New Agent 007, Twitter Says Bring On The Martini

"Bond 25" Film Launch at GoldenEye, Jamaica

Source: Slaven Vlasic / Getty

James Bond is one of the most iconic film characters of all time and Daniel Craig’s version of the British super spy is nearing the end of his run. According to a number of reports, British actress Lashana Lynch will become the new Agent 007 in the upcoming Bond film.

Lynch, who is of Jamaican descent, made a star turn as fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in this year’s Captain Marvel alongside Brie Larson.

Daily Mail writes:

In what’s been called a ‘popcorn-dropping moment’, British star Lashana Lynch, will be given Bond’s licence to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise, currently being shot in Italy and the UK.

However, traditionalists can relax: she’s not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after he leaves MI6.

The story begins with Bond retired in Jamaica. But spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes – calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis.

A movie insider said: ‘There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007’, and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.

‘It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.

Speculation has been swirling forever that Idris Elba would take on the role of Bond in Craig’s wake, but he’s experienced some pushback from fans of the fictional character, no doubt due to his race as many suggested.

However, fans on Twitter are over the moon that the 31-year-old Lynch will bring glamour and grit to the 007 legacy. Check out the reactions from the social media network below.

Boxing Legend Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker Dead At 55, Twitter Reacts #PernellWhitaker

Pernell Whitaker, a four-weight world champion, was one of the best defensive boxers of his era. Fight fans from around the world are joined in mourning after news that the man known as Sweet Pea was struck by a vehicle Sunday night (July 14) in his native Virginia, dying from his injuries.

ESPN reports:

The Virginia Beach Police Department said that the incident remains an active investigation but that Whitaker was apparently hit by a vehicle at around 10 p.m. Sunday when he was walking at an intersection.

“When officers arrived on scene they located an adult male victim who had been hit by a vehicle. The victim succumbed to his injuries on the scene,” Virginia Beach Police Department spokesman L.M. Bauder said in a statement. “The driver of the vehicle remained on scene with police.”

Known as “Sweet Pea,” Whitaker, a southpaw from Norfolk, Virginia, was revered as perhaps the best defensive fighter in history as his slick moves confounded opponent after opponent.

In his time, Whitaker embarrassed his opponents with bob and weave skills that only Floyd Mayweather Jr. has come close to mastering. While his fists didn’t pack knockout power, he stood toe to toe with some of the most feared punchers ever and never once backed down from a challenge.

On Twitter, Whitaker’s name appeared atop the trending topics with reactions from fans all over the world. We’ve collected some of those responses below.

Rest Powerfully In Peace, Sweet Pea.

Rihanna Stans Upset Over Pharrell Williams Possibly Producing On New LP

2016 MusiCares Person Of The Year Honoring Lionel Richie - Backstage And Audience

Source: Larry Busacca / Getty

Rihanna just trolled all 73 million of her Instagram followers by teasing herself for not releasing new music for the year in clever fashion. However, it appears that Pharrell Williams is possibly working with Bad Girl RiRi on the new project in some capacity, which oddly enough had some of her Navy fans upset.

This past Thursday (July 11), Rihanna posted an image of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Karlie Redd in where she shows off a lie detector reading stating the words, “Guys it was all a lie.” The video was the punchline for the Barbadian superstar to poke fun at herself in promising her Navy faithful that new music is coming.

Nobody: Me: Album coming in 2019 Navy in July:

A post shared by badgalriri (@badgalriri) on

However, folks creeping in the comments saw Pharell comment “They ain’t ready” thus prompting a strange response on Twitter Saturday (July 13) morning. Both Pharell and Rihana’s names have been trending on the social media network, with some fans wondering if the promised reggae album from the singer is still in the works and what Skateboard P could actually bring to the table.

Keep in mind, these two have worked out hits in the past, most recently 2017’s “Lemon” single. The beef from the stans is the work Pharrell did on Ariana Grande’s 2018 album Sweetener, not realizing P has been doing this since the 1990s.

And let’s all keep in mind, this isn’t a true confirmation, just all speculation.

Jermaine Dupri Says Today’s Female Rappers Are Like Strippers, Cardi B & Others Get To Gathering

Cardi B, Ari Lenox, Doja Cat & More Call Out Jermaine Dupri

Source: Jason Mendez / Getty

Jermaine Dupri is feeling the wrath of the likes of Cardi B, Doja Cat, Ari Lennox and more after some head ass comments he made. The iconic producer and head of So So Def records said today’s female rappers are like strippers and is getting dragged for it.

Dupri sat down with People magazine on Thursday (July 11) and was asked if he has a favorite female MC in the rap game at the moment? He quickly responded that he doesn’t and feels that the current crop all have the same story of dancing in the strip club.

“They all rapping about the same thing,” he said. “I don’t think they’re showing us who is the best rapper. For me, it’s like strippers rapping. As far as rap goes, I’m not getting ‘who is the best rapper.’

“I’m getting, like, you got a story about you dancing in the club, YOU got a story about you dancing in the club, you got a story…OK. Who’s gonna be the rapper?”

TSR Staff: Thembi! @ThembiTV_ _____________________________________ There are many on-going debates about female rappers. From who’s really rapping, to who’s the Queen. #JermaineDupri sat down with @People and said what he said about his thoughts on female rappers today. _____________________________________ He started off with saying how Da Brat was the first solo female rapper to go platinum, adding that since then women have taken over with selling more records than men. “Prior to Brat that wasn’t happening. There were good artists, but they weren’t doing the numbers I needed for my company.” _____________________________________ When asked who his favorite rapper from today is, he couldn’t say. His reasoning was that–click the link in our bio to read more 🎥: @PeopleTV

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

Cardi B caught wind of Dupri’s comments and explained in an Instagram post with the caption “SUPPORT SUPPORT SUPPORT” why she raps about her lady parts so much.

“First of all, I rap about my pussy because she’s my best friend,” she said. “And second of all, it seems like that’s what people wanna hear.

“When I did ‘Be Careful,’ people was talking mad shit in the beginning, like, ‘What the fuck is this? This is not what I expected. I expected this, I expected that.’ So it’s like, if that’s what people ain’t tryna hear, then I’ma start rapping about my pussy again.”

Cardi B wasn’t the only one upset with Dupri’s comments, Ari Lennox, Doja Cat, and the entire internet is calling out the producer for his remarks and pointing that there are definitely other female rappers out there who don’t just rap about their strip club past and even if that’s the case, so what?

Moneice Slaughter Spills The Tea, Claims Lil Fizz & Apryl Jones Only Smashing To Get Back Omarion

Moneice Slaughter Spills All The Tea On Lil Fizz & Apryl Jones

Source: Michael Tullberg / Getty

Apryl Jones, had the entire internet screaming take her phone away and at the same time wondering what in the hell is wrong with her? Omarion’s baby mother had B2K fans wondering if the group was done after rumors of her dating his band Lil Fizz caught fire. Now, Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Moneice Slaughter is spilling all the tea, and it’s delicious.

Moniece Slaughter let the chopper ring while speaking with Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee on the latest episode of the podcast. She broke down the entire Apryl/Fizz situation to the gossip blogger explaining why she is disgusted that her baby father is shacking up with Omarion’s ex, how Fizz is abusing their son, how he waited till after his fallout with “Ice Box” singer to talk to Jones and confirming Apryl is pregnant but denying he is the father.

Moniece on Fizz and Jones rumored relationship:

“When I made the comment on social media (exposing Fizz and Apryl’s relationship), my son had felt the need to hide and lie. He said he thought that I didn’t want him around Apryl because of what happened between ‘daddy and uncle O.’ I don’t even know what transpired between these two men, and why he would be worried about that at nine years old.”

Moneice on Fizz abusing their son and making him hide it:

“I’m sorry about making the comment about the guys sleeping with [Apryl] for them to pay your bills. But, what I’m not going to do is apologize for the statement I made about my son’s father because it was true.”

“It was very traumatic for my son, and that is why my son feels like he has to lie. When my son came home with the bruises, he said he couldn’t tell us because his dad told him that if he did, that I was going to take him away from him.”

Moneice on Fizz dirty macking and waiting to talk to Apryl after his fallout with Omarion:

“What makes this situation so offputting for me, from what I know [Fizz] did not pursue a friendship with Apryl until he and O fell out. I think initially that was their common ground. I think that they bond over having a common disdain for [Omarion].

Moneice breaking down Apryl’s rumored pregnancy:

“My mom called Drew, and he denied the pregnancy. Period, space, new sentence. You catch that I said ‘the pregnancy.’ And then my mother basically said you’ve lied about everything, we don’t believe you. My mother then said, ‘what do you think this will mean for your son, emotionally’? He then said that he has spoken to Omari, which I found out was a lie.”

This is just a whole ass mess, Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood is going to be so messy when it returns. Also, keep in mind B2K is set to perform at Drake’s music festival OVO Fest too. We are interested to see how that all plays out, you can see the interview and reactions to it in the gallery below.

Joe Budden Calls Crissle “Nasty Bum Ass Homegirl”, She & Twitter Gather The Rapper

Joe Budden Dragged By Crissle & Twitter For Disrespectful Comments

Source: MTV/TRL / Getty

A$AP Rocky currently being locked up Swedish prison which is reportedly being poorly kept is sparking a lot of controversy at home stateside. Highly-opinionated rapper turned pop culture pundit, Joe Budden, found himself in the crosshairs of Twitter’s wrath after he called out fellow podcaster Crissle.

The drama all began after Budden commented on people bringing up Rocky’s comments he made in response to the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson back in 2014. Crissle, in response to the #JusticeForRocky movement to get the rapper released from jail, shared a screenshot from the interview with the caption:

“I thought of this when I heard about Asap Rocky’s situation in Sweden,” 

Budden, without saying Crissle’s name sent a sub her way and stated on his podcast:

“I don’t like that this is coming up now, I don’t think it adds anything to the narrative.” 

“Nor does it change how I feel. If it changes how you feel, then you should look inside your heart. He’s in a real fucked up situation over there, how I feel about that is not altered by how he feels about anything.” 

“That’s so nasty on Twitter,” he added, as he addressed the critics. “But that nasty ass bum ass homegirl, I seen her put it out. It’s just like, you niggas that be preaching this pro black shit but get evil in a heartbeat…woo” 

A follower brought up Joe’s comments to the co-host of the popular podcast The Read and she let Joe have it.

The fallout quickly followed with plenty of Twitter joining in and dragging Budden by his long cardigan up and down their timelines. You can see all of the Tweets that stemmed from the podcast beef in the gallery below.
