NBA players side with ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski after reported suspension

Sports
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has reportedly been suspended without pay by ESPN for saying “f--- you” to Missouri Sen.

After the news of Woj’s suspension broke on Saturday night, NBA players (both in the bubble and beyond) started tweeting the #FreeWoj hashtag on Twitter to support the veteran NBA reporter.

Kanye West to run for presidency

Entertainment
It's unclear whether he's consulted with his friend Donald Trump, but rapper Kanye West has announced he's ready to unseat the Republican president. "We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future," West wrote on Twitter Saturday evening. "I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION" It's not apparent how serious he is about running, but it seems unlikely the polarizing entertainer could actually unseat Trump. It's probably more likely he could use a little publicity for his upcoming album, "God's Country," and its first single, "Wash Us in the Blood," which was released earlier this week. But Trump himself was a reality TV star and former President Ronald Reagan of course made his name as a ...

Coronavirus – Uganda: Ministry of Health Vows Not To pay bad black

HEALTH
The Ministry of Health has this Sunday afternoon released a three page media statement responding to “black mail” by Bad Black aka Shanita Namuyimbwa who yesterday recorded messages threatening to sue government unless the MoH pays her Shs500m.
