A father has accused a water park of racial discrimination after his teenage son’s birthday party was abruptly canceled after over 500 guests arrived. Chris Evans said he signed a $1,900 contract to reserve the Summit Waves Aquatic Facility to hold a party of 250 people for his 17-year-old son Isiah’s birthday party on Saturday. But twice as many people showed up, according to park officials, prompting them to cancel the event. While Evans and his wife were headed to the water park, they were told ‘this event doesn’t represent Lee’s Summit Waves and that my reservation was canceled because she was uncomfortable,’ Evans said during a press conference published in the Kansas City Star . City officials defended the park’s decision to cancel the party, saying that about 500 teenagers showed up for the event. Park officials had become aware of social media posts advertising the event, which ‘raised serious concerns about the safety of party guests.’ Part of a … [Read more...] about Water park that cancels black teen’s birthday party as 250 guests arriving accused of being racist

“I did something wrong.” That’s how former MSNBC host Chris Matthews explained his sudden departure from MSNBC. Matthews appeared on MSNBC host Joy Reid’s show Tuesday after abruptly retiring in March 2020 amid allegations of inappropriate behavior. Matthews was accused of flirting with a female journalist who had appeared on his show multiple times beginning in 2016. In a rambling explanation that both took and cast blame, Matthews said “nobody has come to defend me.” “I think the reason I — I know the reason I left, somebody reported that I complimented somebody — actually, I’m gonna’ use the right words here. I commented, remarked on somebody’s appearance in the makeup room, and I shouldn’t have done that,” Matthews said. “Nobody has to come defend me.

Chris Matthews was noticeably missing from MSNBC’s coverage of the South Carolina primary on Saturday, just a day after the longtime anchor of “Fastball” was accused of “sexist” behavior by a former network contributor. Matthews is a regular on every election night, offering his high octane take on the goings on. That made his absence Saturday night all the more glaring. In a GQ piece Friday headlined, “Like Warren, I Had My Own Sexist Run-In with Chris Matthews,” journalist Laura Bassett claimed that Matthews had used sexist language several times when she appeared on his show as a guest. Matthews had pressed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) after the Democrats’ latest debate on Tuesday about why she harangued former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg over accusations of sexist behavior in his past, including a charge that he once told a pregnant employee to “kill it.” “Why would he lie?” Matthews said of Bloomberg’s denial. “Because just to protect himself?” “You believe … [Read more...] about MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Disappears After Allegations Of Sexism | The Daily Wire
America’s Next Top Model contestant Danielle Evans has spoken out about the controversial viral moment where host Tyra Banks reprimanded her for not fixing a gap in her teeth. The clip – from the 2006 edition of the show – went viral earlier this week, and drew a raft of criticism online, including from fellow model Slick Woods. Danielle was told by Tyra that she would struggle to fit in in the modelling world without using cosmetic surgery to close the gap. ‘So Danielle, you went to the dentist but refused to have your gap closed,’ Tyra said while gesturing to her own teeth. ‘Do you really think you can have a Cover Girl contract with the gap in your mouth?’ Now, Danielle – who actually went on to win her season of the show and secure that CoverGirl contract – has spoken out about the experience. ‘In that moment, I knew what was happening. I knew I was basically set up and not being told Tyra wants me to get my gap closed so that it’s good for TV,’ she revealed … [Read more...] about America’s Next Top Model contestant Danielle Evans speaks out after Tyra Banks ‘GapGate’ goes viral
It’s a lawless world beneath the Premier League, but even a lawless world begins to take some sort of ridiculous shape. Welcome to Week Three of the EFL.

Is Michael Flynn making Walsall invincible? We selected the weekend's top fixtures and offer a glimpse into what could be in store.
