    When TMZ first reported that actor Jussie Smollett was the victim of a vicious hate crime, it sounded almost impossible to believe. Upon leaving a Chicago Subway sandwich shop circa 2 AM one sub-zero night in late January, two masked men recognized him as the openly gay black actor starring in Fox’s ‘Empire,’ hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, beat him to the point of breaking his ribs, doused him with bleach, tied a noose around his neck, before pronouncing “This is MAGA Country!” and fleeing. Making such astonishing claims, the national media owed it to their viewers to...

    Jay-Z isn't the only person upset with Travis Scott for agreeing to perform with Maroon 5 at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. Rev. Al Sharpton slammed Scott, claiming that Scott essentially turned his back on the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality against people of color by agreeing to perform at the NFL's biggest night. "I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that...

Women's rights attorney and activist Gloria Allred told CNN, "This is a very important day. Judgment day has come. We're so very proud of what law enforcement did to make sure we had a just outcome." Writer and actress Quinta Brunson tweeted, "As a Philadelphian and fan of his shows and...

    Omarosa Manigault Newman was put in the hot seat while trying to explain why she continued to work for President Trump after she believed he used racial language. The former White House staff member conducted an interview with TMZ on Tuesday to discuss the secret recordings she speaks about in her new book “Unhinged.” Manigault Newman recently released a conversation between her and campaigners Lynne Patton and Katrina Pierson in 2016. All three staffers can be heard discussing Trump saying the word “nigger”. Patton said the president denied using the racial slur when asked, but Manigault Newman responded back, “That’s...

    Detroit hip-hop station 105.1 The Bounce says it's pulling Kanye West songs off of its Morning Bounce playlist following a recent string of erratic episodes from the rapper, including West saying he believes slavery was a "choice." The station made the announcement on its Facebook page on Thursday morning. "We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that 'slavery was a choice.' We are over it," the station wrote on Facebook. "We don't want to hear Kanye's music, we don't want to play Kanye on our show, we don't want to talk about Kanye anymore....

    Kanye West revealed in a TMZ interview on Tuesday that he wanted to apologize to George W. Bush for saying in 2005 that the president did not care about black people in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Kanye West said he was always told not to apologize to Bush, but that he recently saw the former president pushing his father’s wheelchair at Barbara Bush’s funeral in March, and he felt sympathy for him. “Do you know how bad I would want to go to George Bush and say I’m sorry for hurting you. I was an artist I was hurting...

The second was a Kanye who appeared at the TMZ headquarters where he had this to say: "When you hear about slavery for 400 years ... For 400 years? That sounds like a choice." The rapper went on to add: "You were there for 400 years and it's all of y'all. It's like we're mentally imprisoned."

    Rap superstar and culture critic Kanye West accused many in the black community of hypocrisy by focusing more of their outrage on white violence against black people or his decision to wear a Donald Trump campaign hat than the problems in black communities. “Black people have a tendency to focus and march when a white person kills a black person or wears a hat, but when it’s 700 kids being killed in Chicago it’s O.K.,” Kanye West said during a lengthy and wide-ranging interview with TMZ boss Harvey Levin on Tuesday. The Grammy-winning rapper-producer’s words infuriated Van Lathan, a black...

    We pretty much already knew it, but now he's come out and said it himself -- Donald Trump is not a feminist. British news host Piers Morgan tweeted a quote from his recent interview with the Prez, in which Trump apparently says, "‘No, I wouldn't say I'm a feminist. I mean, I think that would be, maybe, going too far. I'm for women, I'm for men, I’m for everyone." BREAKING NEWS: President Trump has declared he is NOT a feminist.

    Kathy Griffin attacked TMZ founder Harvey Levin and leaked his personal phone number in a video posted online Saturday, accusing the media personality of being “in bed” both with Hollywood figures and President Donald Trump. In the 17-minute video, titled “A Hell of a Story,” Griffin played a voicemail from Levin — long considered one of the most influential media personalities in Hollywood — in which his personal phone number could be heard. “So, that’s his number. I don’t have a minute to call him. Maybe you do,” Griffin says in the clip. TMZ was instrumental in breaking the news...

    Harvey Weinstein may have been fired illegally by The Weinstein Company, a company that wrote a contract that said Weinstein could get sued over and over for sexual harassment and as long as he shelled out money, that was good enough for the Company. TMZ is privy to Weinstein's 2015 employment contract, which says if he gets sued for sexual harassment or any other "misconduct" that results in a settlement or judgment against TWC, all Weinstein has to do is pay what the company's out, along with a fine, and he's in the clear. According to the contract, if Weinstein...

The telco has already named longtime exec John Stankey to be CEO of AT&T’s media properties. He’s leading the Time Warner Merger Integration Planning Team, working with Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes.

    'Trusted names in news are not trusted anymore' A couple of months ago, TMZ founder Harvey Levin met with Donald Trump at the White House. If you heard about it, you probably caught a whiff of the left-wing outrage it engendered. If the Trump-hating ideologues are to be believed, everyone who deals with Trump is a turncoat to the cause, the American people, and the human race.

Now liberal Hollywood want us to choose who he (yes, he...because he STILL has a PENIS) looks more attractive than...
