    Getty Cam Thomas and James Harden of the Nets try to make a play on defense. It was far from pretty but the Brooklyn Nets scratched out their third straight win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night. The Nets played from behind for most of the contest but were able to come out with a 117-112 victory. Nets superstar Kevin Durant led the way with 27 points in the contest. but the story of the night was Nets rookie shooting guard Cam Thomas who had a career-high 11 points on 4-7 shooting. Thomas who recently scored 46 points for the Nets G-League affiliate the Long Island Nets has proven he has the tools to be a volume scorer in this league. And at 20 years old he already believes he is a better scorer than Durant was at his age. “Me and KD just be trash-talking about our scoring abilities because I say I’m a better scorer at my age than he was and he doesn’t believe that,” Thomas said after the victory. “He never wants to...
    Getty Malik Monk had himself a night in the Lakers' win over the Heat. The Los Angeles Lakers pulled out a thrilling comeback victory over the Miami Heat but not everyone was happy with the outcome. Malik Monk was understandably happy after posting 27 points, six rebounds, three assists and hitting four three pointers in the Lakers win.

    Getty Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden. James Harden might not have any tattoos himself, but that hasn’t stopped fans around the league from getting tattoos of the Brooklyn Nets star on themselves. With Harden being one of the most popular figures in the league, it makes sense for fans to gravitate toward him for tattoos. It also helps that he’s among the most recognizable even for casual fans thanks to his mammoth beard that he’s been sporting for the majority of his career since leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder. As it turns out, if you’re asking to get a tattoo of somebody like Jesus, the artist might inadvertently model him after the Nets star. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Herman Aldo Wibowo (@hermanaldowibowo) On Instagram, Herman Aldo Wibowo shared a tattoo he did of Black Jesus, and it was released with practically no fanfare at the time, which isn’t that unexpected considering the artist doesn’t have a huge following. “I’m very stoked with how this out came out,” reads the caption of the...
    The Washington Post has refused to publish former President Donald Trump's full response to its three-part investigation finding that warning signs were ignored ahead of the January 6 insurrection. In its decision not to publish the former president's entire response, The Post noted that Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich 'provided a lengthy written response' to its investigation 'that included [a] series of unrelated inflammatory claims that The Post is not publishing in full.' The decision comes just a few days after the Wall Street Journal faced backlash for publishing an op-ed by the former president without fact-checking it.  The Post wrote that Budowich said Trump 'greatly objected' to all of the 37 findings reported as part of its investigation, and dismissed the stories as 'fake news,' which 'falsely cast people who entered the Capitol on January 6 as "agitators not associated with President Trump".'      'The media's obsession with the January 6th protest is a blatant attempt to overshadow a simple fact: there is no greater threat to America than leftist journalists and the Fake News, which has avoided a careful examination...

    On Thursday, CNN issued a statement responding to critique of the network made by Joe Rogan on his podcast to guest Sanjay Gupta, who is CNN’s chief medical analyst. Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple was less than impressed with the network’s response. At issue is an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience in which the host, who announced in September he tested positive for Covid-19 and took ivermectin (among other unproven treatments), took issue with CNN’s characterization of the drug. Ivermectin is an anti-parasite drug which can be prescribed to humans, and also to livestock and pets as a dewormer. “CNN is saying I’m taking horse dewormer,” Rogan told Gupta. “They must know that’s a lie.” As Wemple noted in a column sharing CNN’s statement, several personalities at the network played up ivermectin’s role as an animal dewormer. “By highlighting that ivermectin is a horse dewormer, and downplaying that ivermectin has important uses for people, CNN facilitates a certain assumption among its viewers,” Wemple wrote. “Namely, that Rogan had been haunting the aisles of Tractor Supply.” The network’s statement...
    It's like Lenin said: There are decades when nothing happens, and there are dresses where decades happen. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's "Tax the Rich" dress at the Met Gala (Vogue, 9/16/21) might have passed through the media as a mere photo opportunity or act of class-conscious performance art, but given that it happened near the 10th anniversary of the first day of the Occupy Wall Street protests, the event may be an indicator of how much Occupy has moved the public toward policies of aggressively taxing the wealthy to pay for needed social programs, education, public employment and infrastructure. And corporate media's response indicates that they are worried that history might be on Ocasio-Cortez and her dress's side. 'Wrong message' David Harsanyi (New York Post, 9/17/21) argues that the rich shouldn't pay more because our tax system is already progressive–which is neither logically nor empirically true. The Murdoch-owned New York Post (9/17/21) led the charge against her protest, with David Harsanyi complaining, "Despite perceptions, the highest-income strata of taxpayers are the only ones who pay a larger share of taxes...

                        Shana Chappell, the mother of U.S. Marine Kareem Nikoui who was killed in the deadly terrorist attack in Afghanistan, slammed President Joe Biden for his response to the families of the fallen soldiers. In a social media post, Chappell called out Biden for “disrespect,” describing that Biden repeatedly checked his watch as the bodies of the victims of the deadly explosion were carried off a plane. “After I lay my son to rest you will be seeing me again!” Chappell said in a post in which Biden was tagged. “Remember I am the one who stood five inches from your face and was letting you know I would never get to hug my son again, hear his laugh and then you tried to interrupt me and give me your own sob story.” According to Chappell, after Biden interrupted her, he rolled his eyes and threw his hand up as he walked away. However, Chappell is not the only family member of the slain military members that expressed frustration...

New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). The artifact crashed into the 7 World Trade Center around 5 pm and ended wedged between the window panes outside the third floor of the 52-story skyscraper in Lower Manhattan, the sources said.

    The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police wanted more people to know about hero East Peoria Officer Jeffrey Bieber, so it planned to pay Facebook extra for a "boost" in distribution of its post, according to a report. But the social networking giant rejected the police group’s request, citing "sensitive social issues" connected with the ad that could spark controversy, the Journal Star of Peoria reported. Ed Wojcicki, executive director of the police group, told the newspaper he couldn’t believe Facebook would reject a tribute to a police officer.

    The Russian-linked hacking group REvil has demanded $70 million in Bitcoin for the decryption key to unlock its ransomware after they said more than one million systems were attacked. Satnam Narang, a researcher at cyber exposure company Tenable, tweeted a screenshot of a blog post the hacking collective had posted on the dark web site 'Happy Blog.'  'On Friday (02.07.2021) we launched an attack on MSP providers.

    Establishment media found a new enemy since former President Donald Trump left office – Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. But the never-ending attacks never seem to find permanent standing. When Rebekah Jones came forward and made now-debunked claims that the DeSantis administration was altering COVID-19 data, the media propped her up as a hero. Jones was a frequent guest on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show and CNN, including an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo. A Cosmopolitan profile on Jones claimed that her “freedom was on the line;” and The Huffington Post wrote an article about how Jones promised to “speak truth to power.” But fact checks and analysis later proved that there were no significant issues in Florida’s COVID data. It was later revealed that Jones had been fired for multiple issues at her job, including disrupting operations in her department and leaking confidential data, according to a New York Post report from Charles C.W. Cooke. (RELATED: Ron DeSantis Signs Bill Scrapping All Of Florida’s Covid Restrictions) Many outlets also attacked DeSantis for lifting COVID-19 restrictions in Florida. ABC News cited...

    The Nashville company HatWrks is under fire after the owner posted a photo of herself wearing a yellow "NOT VACCINATED" patch shaped like the Star of David. In her sadly unoriginal attempt to convince the general public that pandemic response equated to the genocide of some six million Jewish men, women, and children, the owner of a Nashville hat company posted a photo of herself on Instagram wearing a yellow patch similar to the Star of David with the phrase "NOT VACCINATED" on it. That owner, Gigi Gaskins of the company HatWrks, then defended the post in the kind of rant only a person of privilege could produce. In the Instagram post Gaskins wrote: "people are so outraged by my post? but are you outraged with the tyranny the world is experiencing? if you don't understand what is happening, that is on you, not me. i pay much more respect to history by standing up with the fallen than offering silence & compliance. that is the worse crime. it was then & is now. i will delete your disgust and hope you put...
    Joshua Roberts / Getty Images Former President Donald Trump, you may have noticed recently, has been communicating mostly through statements to get his message out. He’s done a few interviews here and there — his most recent of which was on Dan Bongino’s radio program — but it’s largely been statements posted to his website. Trump still gets attention here and there for some of his statements, and he’s continued pushing his usual baseless claims about the 2020 election, but a recent Washington Post report found that online talk about the former president is at a pretty notable low point. He still has a great deal of influence within the Republican party, but the Post report says that “social engagement around Trump… has nosedived 95 percent since January, to its lowest level since 2016.” Trump’s entire website, including his blog, saw roughly 4 million visits in the week ending May 18 from desktop and mobile devices in the United States — about 60 percent of the week’s traffic for the right-wing websites Newsmax and the Gateway Pundit, according to an analysis by...
                      by Eric Lendrum  CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is facing mounting calls to resign from his job at CNN, after recently admitting to directly advising his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), on how to deal with growing scandals in his administration, Fox News reports. Cuomo admitted on his Thursday night show that he had directly provided advice to his older brother in the same capacity as a senior adviser, as the embattled governor dealt with multiple allegations of sexual harassment and assault, as well as the fallout from the revelation that his administration deliberately covered up the true number of nursing home deaths due to the coronavirus. “Like you, I bet, my family means everything to me,” the younger Cuomo said in his attempted explanation. “And I am fiercely loyal to them. I’m family first, job second…I know where the line is.” In response, even numerous left-wing journalists joined in on the chorus of criticism, with the overwhelming consensus being that Cuomo was incapable of balancing his personal loyalties to his...
    The stunning revelation that CNN star Chris Cuomo advised his brother, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, amid the growing sexual misconduct allegations was blasted by one CNN insider.  As first reported by The Washington Post, CNN admitted on Thursday that its primetime host engaged in "inappropriate" strategy meetings with the embattled governor's team earlier this year as he faced multiple accusations of sexual harassment and unwanted touching. WOMAN'S GROUP ULTRAVIOLET CALLS ON CNN TO SUSPEND CHRIS CUOMO, INVESTIGATE NETWORK'S COVERAGE OF NY GOVERNOR  The CNN insider took aim at the anchor for allegedly invoking "cancel culture" while urging his brother to stay firm in combatting the misconduct claims.  "To say it’s ‘cancel culture’ -  it's despicable," the insider told Fox News.  The CNN insider slammed what was perceived as a double standard of the "Cuomo Prime Time" anchor to avoid covering his scandals in recent months after inviting the governor onto his show as a hero of the coronavirus pandemic.  "It's the height of hypocrisy for Chris to have [his brother] on there for the good news but doesn’t...
    In a stunning revelation of conflict of interest in and about the liberal media, CNNs Chris Cuomo took part in strategy calls about how his brother Gov. Andrew Cuomo should respond to reports of sexual harassment of women, The Washington Post reported in an exclusive Thursday. Chris Cuomo, a primetime host on CNN, advised his brother and senior members of the governors staff on how to respond to multiple allegations of sexual harassment, four sources told the Post. CNN even acknowledged the participation of their host in the calls, noting it was "inappropriate," but said he will not be disciplined, the Post reported. "Chris has not been involved in CNNs extensive coverage of the allegations against Gov. Cuomo — on air or behind the scenes," CNN told the Post in a statement. "In part because, as he has said on his show, he could never be objective. But also because he often serves as a sounding board for his brother. "However, it was inappropriate to engage in conversations that included members of the governors staff, which Chris acknowledges. He will...

UFC president Dana White is easily the more successful promoter in MMA history, and there’s a pretty solid argument to be made as well that he’s the best across all of combat sports in general. But recently released UFC star Dan Hardy found out exactly what happens when someone tries to tell White what he and the UFC should do next. Hardy revealed to MMA Fighting how White responded after Hardy turned down two comeback fights pitched to him by UFC officials. Hardy hoped for a different kind of opponent or a release from his UFC contract altogether. Instead, he caught some chuckles. “I even spoke to Dana about it a couple of times about it, and he just kind of laughed at me,” Hardy said. “These are actually his words: ‘Why would you want to do that?

    TLC "90 Day Fiance" star Jovi Dufren was criticized by netizens after he said he thought breastfeeding in public was "illegal." “90 Day Fiance” star Jovi Dufren was criticized by netizens after he assumed breastfeeding in public was “illegal” on the May 16 episode of the TLC reality show. Others accused Jovi of being too harsh on his wife Yara Zaya, saying he wanted to go on a honeymoon before their newborn daughter Mylah was six months old. When they went out to a restaurant to eat, Jovi became frustrated that Yara was so concerned with Mylah. The Ukrainian native fretted over the baby, making sure she was comfortable under the New Orleans sun. When they finally got settled Mylah was ready to eat so Yara asked Jovi to hand her a blanket.

    Getty Images Joe Gorga. Following the season finale of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” that aired on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, Joe Gorga took to Instagram to share a photo of himself with his wife, Melissa Gorga, perhaps in an effort to set some things straight. Joe and Melissa’s marriage has been a focus of “RHONJ” for the first time on the franchise. The two were both very vulnerable at times — whether that was real or exaggerated for the show — and fans saw a different side of the Gorga marriage. Their marriage appeared strained, and the two openly argued while Bravo cameras were rolling. While the other “Housewives” tried their best not to overstep, there were definitely times throughout the season where things were said. For example, Margaret Josephs called Joe a “chauvinist” on more than one occasion. And while Joe expressed to Margaret that he wasn’t happy that she did that, he may have just responded in his own way on Instagram. Here’s what you need to know:Joe Responded to a Comment About Marge...

    Hillsong megachurch has responded to its most recent sex scandal. The Australia-based, multinational institution lost yet another pastor following revelations of infidelity this week. Darnell Barrett, the creative director of the church’s Montclair, New Jersey, chapter resigned on Tuesday after sharing explicit photos to his Instagram and sending a revealing selfie to a nonconsenting church volunteer.  “Hey!

    Liberal media outlets almost completely ignored the "Uncle Tim" slurs that trended on social media against Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., after his rebuttal Wednesday to President Biden's address to Congress. Scott, the lone Black Republican in the U.S. Senate, infuriated progressives with his speech, which included remarks that the United States isn't a racist country. After his rebuttal, "Uncle Tim" trended on Twitter, a play on the "Uncle Tom" slur for Blacks viewed as overly deferential to Whites. Yet the primetime shows on liberal cable outlets CNN and MSNBC ignored the attacks Thursday, as did "CBS Evening News" and ABC's "World News Tonight." CNN and MSNBC's websites also both skipped the racially charged story, as did the New York Times. The network's morning shows also skipped the story Friday morning, according to a transcript search. CNN, MSNBC FUME OVER TIM SCOTT'S SPEECH: 'EXTRAORDINARILY PARTISAN, 'FROM A PLANET WHERE FACTS DON'T MATTER' "NBC Nightly News" briefly mentioned the controversy on its Thursday broadcast, while the Washington Post passively mentioned it by quoting an activist who was among those using the racist phrase....
    The timing of Washington Post's latest "fact-check" on Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., which has been panned by critics, is raising questions.  Scott, who was chosen Thursday to deliver the Republican Party’s response to President Biden's speech to a joint session of Congress on April 28, was the subject of a lengthy piece by the Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler. The piece, "Tim Scott often talks about his grandfather and cotton. There’s more to that tale," examined the "origin stories" of comments the Senator has made about being an ancestor of slaves. Scott has said his grandfather dropped out of elementary school to pick cotton, so the liberal newspaper enlisted its fact-checker to get to the bottom of the claim. WASHINGTON POST CRUSHED FOR 'FACT CHECK' ON WHETHER SEN. TIM SCOTT TRULY WENT 'FROM COTTON TO CONGRESS' Kessler's report was published at 3 AM, roughly 12 hours after Scott was tapped to make the GOP rebuttal against the Democratic president. Critics slammed the fact-check as a "hit piece" against the up-and-coming Republican lawmaker that ultimately did not debunk his past claims about his ancestry.  FILE - In...

    This Hillsong megachurch branch has been deemed beyond immediate redemption.  Following months of internal scandal and shocking allegations, Hillsong’s founders have informed congregants that the Australia-based institution’s only Texas church will be closing up shop until further notice.  “Many factors, all amplified by the pandemic, have resulted in the difficult decision to pause all operations at Hillsong Dallas for now,” Brian and Bobbie Houston, the husband-and-wife team who co-founded Hillsong and currently share the title of Global Senior Pastors, wrote to congregants in a Saturday email which was forwarded to The Post. “When the time is right and we have identified and trained suitable lead pastors, we will consider relaunching.” The email goes on to detail a previously unannounced internal investigation into the Dallas branch’s former lead pastors, Reed and Jess Bogard, who quietly and suddenly resigned in January after more than a decade of employment at the once-celebrity-beloved international worship chain. Before becoming top dog at the Texas branch, Reed Bogard served as the head of finances at Hillsong NYC, where former members alleged that he and Jess...
    BOSTON (CBS) — For the second time this season, the Bruins honored Zdeno Chara with a tribute video on the TD Garden video board on Sunday night. This time was a little bit more special for the 44-year-old former B’s captain, as there were fans in the stands to give him a well-earned ovation. And a day after the game — which the Capitals won, 8-1 — Chara made sure to take some time to thank the people of Boston for the moment. “Boston fans, it was nice to hear your appreciation last night in person,” Chara wrote. “My time in Boston is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you all for so many memories.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Zdeno Chara (@zeechara33) Chara’s Instagram always provides some insight into the emotions and thoughts of a man known mostly for his physical style of play, so it was no surprise to see him offer up a genuine message like that one. It was also no surprise to see Brad Marchand...

A firestorm ensued after the image was shared, with some people praising the reality-television star and others criticizing Kardashian's team for trying to scrape the image off the internet. Kardashian even responded to the photo on Wednesday via Instagram, sharing unfiltered images of her body, and saying that the "pressure, constant ridicule, and judgment" to meet beauty standards set by others "has been too much to bear." She also said that she's been motivated by past criticisms to get herself "in the best shape" of her life, and argued that the unauthorized photo "doesn't capture"...

    DILLIAN WHYTE has branded Tyson Fury a 'coward' and accused The Gypsy King of ducking him. Fury, who is currently gearing up for a blockbuster showdown with Anthony Joshua, once again declared himself the king of the heavyweights over the week. One these nuts in ya mouth u run away from fighting me twice #coward— Dillian Whyte (@DillianWhyte) April 4, 2021 The WBC champion proclaimed himself to be the baddest man on the planet by tweeting a mock poster of himself and his divisional rivals as Roman gladiators. He wrote: "There has only ever been 1. @Tyson_Fury @BronzeBomber @DillianWhyte @anthonyjoshua @usykaa." It didn't take long for Whyte to get wind of Fury's post, which he responded to in blistering fashion. He said: "One these nuts in ya mouth u run away from fighting me twice #coward." Whyte is no stranger to firing shots at Fury, who he's claimed to have 'bashed' and 'dropped' multiple times in sparring. But he's unlikely to get his hands on him any time soon as the former unified heavyweight champion has inked a two-fight deal...

    Virginie Kippelen/Getty Images Asian American media company 88rising apologized on Wednesday after receiving intense scrutiny for posting a yellow square on Instagram in response to the shootings in Atlanta that killed eight people, six of whom were Asian women. The shooting occurred amid a rise of anti-Asian attacks and hate crimes in the United States. The alleged shooter has been identified as Robert Aaron Long, who was arrested and charged on Wednesday. While law enforcement officials did not identify racism as a motive for Long’s attacks, instead indicating he was driven by a “sexual addiction,” the shootings prompted an influx of support for the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community — many recognizing the increase in violence targeting the demographic. Mass media and talent management company, 88rising, which represents a number of Asian artists, including Jackson Wang and Chungha, also took to Instagram to share their solidarity with the AAPI community. The company posted an image of yellow square, as the color yellow has been controversially and stereotypically used to represent Asian skin tones. The move was meant to be...

    BRASÍLIA (Reuters) - President Jair Bolsonaro has withdrawn his pick of a retired military man for the board of Brazil's federal health regulator Anvisa, the latest indication that he is starting to take the country's worsening coronavirus pandemic more seriously. Bolsonaro, who has faced widespread criticism over his handling of the world's second deadliest coronavirus outbreak, originally chose Jorge Luiz Kormann to be on the board of Anvisa, which oversees approvals of vaccines for use against COVID-19. Kormann was previously in the military-led health ministry, and his transfer to an important technocratic role at Anvisa drew widespread concern and raised doubts about whether he would be confirmed in the post by the Senate. However, Bolsonaro has now withdrawn Kormann's name and proposed Romison Rodrigues Mota for the role, according to a post in the official gazette on Tuesday. Mota is a career civil servant who is already serving as acting Anvisa director. The removal of Kormann appears to be part of a broader shift in Bolsonaro's attitude toward a pandemic he has long sought to portray as a "little flu."...

    Washington (CNN)Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley defended efforts to deploy the National Guard to the US Capitol during the insurrection and said approval was given at "sprint speed," The Washington Post reported Tuesday."If the forces ... were ready to go as part of the preparatory stuff, then I'd say, OK, that's a fair assessment. But this is the D.C. National Guard that went from a cold start, and they had troops there in two and a half, three hours," Milley told reporters on Monday in his first public remarks about the Pentagon's response to the attack, according to the newspaper. "They reacted faster than our most elite forces from a cold start."The newspaper also reported that Defense officials approved the request to send National Guard members to the US Capitol in nearly an hour, in which Milley said was "super fast" and "like sprint speed" for the Pentagon.CNN reached out to the Defense Department and Milley's office for comment on Wednesday.The comments from Milley come amid finger pointing and criticism over the response to the...
    CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter insisted Sunday he had some real zingers for Donald Trump Jr. for comparing him to Mr. Potato Head but refrained from responding on Twitter because that’s what the former president’s son wanted. He decided to let viewers know he took the high road. "I thought of some really cunning responses, really clever ways to reply, some way to go viral. But then, I stopped," Stelter said on "Reliable Sources," his weekly media affairs program. HASBRO REBRANDING MR. POTATO HEAD TOY LINE AS GENDER-NEUTRAL 'POTATO HEAD’ CNN in-house media critic Brian Stelter insists he had a really "cunning" response to Donald Trump Jr. comparing him to Mr. Potato Head but refrained from responding on Twitter. The strange story began last week when toy conglomerate Hasbro announced the mustachioed Mr. Potato Head and clean-shaven Mrs. Potato Head would soon be rebranded as the gender-neutral "Potato Head" toy line. As a result of the news, Stelter began trending on social media. Many critics of the liberal CNN host made jokes equating Stelter to Mr. Potato Head, and Trump Jr. took it offline during his speech at CPAC. "Hasbro...

    Facebook issued an apology to a member of Congress for deleting a post of hers that was in favor of transgender rights. The social media platform took down a video of Rep. Marie Newman, a Democrat from Illinois, in which she hung a trans pride flag outside of her office. The post, which the lawmaker says Facebook labeled as “hate speech,” was published in response to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (whose office is across the hall from hers) actively campaigning against the Equality Act, which would include “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” as classes protected under the Civil Rights Act. HOUSE SET TO VOTE ON EQUALITY ACT AFTER HEATED DEBATE OVER GAY AND TRANSGENDER RIGHTS "Congresswoman, this plainly should not have happened. We've restored this content and you have our sincere apologies," Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said on Twitter Thursday morning in response to a post from Newman outlining the situation. Stone directed the Washington Examiner to his tweet when reached for comment. Facebook took down our video of me putting up the Transgender flag outside my office and labeled...
    Getty Cam Newton It’s a shame this is even necessary, but on Sunday night, Cam Newton posted a response to the now-viral video of a disrespectful teenager heckling him at the 2015 NFL MVP’s 7-on-7 camp. Yes, if that sounds absurd to you, it’s because it is. The kid looks to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 5’4″ and more of a walking locker room cancer than a potential prospect, but hopefully, things change for him down the road. With the video sweeping social media, Newton posted his video after the initial heckling. It shows him talking–or at least trying to speak–to the misguided young man afterward. The young man is a little more subdued now that he’s being engaged in an actual conversation but seemingly conflicted because he’s created an awkward situation for himself, and there are too many people watching to back down at this point. He sticks with the bravado that has made him one of the more unlikeable people on social media this week (but it’s only Sunday). Ah, immaturity at its finest. Take a look at...
