Samsung STAYS coming for Apple. And I love it.

In case you haven’t heard, Apple is having a wee bit of trouble with their new phones, which has affectionately been dubbed as “Bendgate.” Basically, the new iPhone 6 phones are bending in people’s pockets. That’s…not supposed to happen.

Not a good look, Apple!

And you know Samsung doesn’t miss an opportunity to throw their jabs…

 

And then there’s this commercial:

AHHHHH! I love it!

Team Android.

Team Samsung.

Just in case you couldn’t tell.

“Boobs on the ground?” – Fox News hosts on United Arab Emirates’ first female fighter pilot

These idiots never cease to amaze me with their antics, man.

Two male co-hosts of Fox News’ “The Five” cracked sexist jokes Wednesday about the United Arab Emirates’ first female fighter pilot.

Kimberly Guilfoyle took a moment to salute Major Mariam Al Mansouri, who reportedly led her country’s airstrikes Monday against the Islamic State. Guilfoyle noted how rich it was that an Arab woman was leading the charge against the militant group, given that women aren’t even allowed to drive in some countries in the region.

“The problem is after she bombed it she couldn’t park it,” co-host Greg Gutfield quipped. “I salute her.”

“Would that be considered boobs on the ground or no?” Eric Bolling chimed in.

I mean, COME ON. How dumb can you be?  Is it that they are just this unaware?  Do they really think they are funny? Do they hate women? Are they jealous?

WHAT IS IT?

Ugh.

You can watch this ridiculousness here:

What were they thinking? The disrespect and blatant misogyny is baffling. Not only for Major Mariam Al Mansouri, but for their own coworker!?

Just wow.

WELP: Amber Rose files for divorce from Wiz Khalifa

For some reason, this doesn’t shock me. At all.

TMZ reports:

Amber Rose has filed for divorce from husband-of-1-year Wiz Khalifa … and she’s gunning for full custody of their kid … TMZ has learned.

In the divorce docs — obtained by TMZ — Amber says they split on Monday and cites irreconcilable differences.

Amber is asking for full legal and physical custody of their 1-year-old son Sebastian.  She’s willing to give Wiz visitation.

And this is interesting.  Amber acknowledges there’s a prenup, which you would think would work in Wiz’ favor, but she says it’s valid … presumably, she’s not challenging it.  The docs say the prenup provides spousal support.

As for why they split, there’s been a buzz over the last few days of infidelity, but there’s no mention of it in the papers.

We got video (below) of Amber with some guy Tuesday in Bev Hills.  Our photog asks her if Wiz is keeping a close eye on Nick Cannon — there are rumors they’ve hooked up, but she’s mum.

Sources connected with the couple say the split is bitter.

Hopefully, they can come to a good place for the sake of the baby.

Peep these tweets from Amber Rose:

Well. I guess that answers that. Wiz cheated on her. And from the looks of it, she was DONE. There was no (legal) separation. She went straight divorce. And I read that she was spotted without her wedding ring on the day of.

When a woman’s fed up….

Grand jury declines to indict cops who killed John Crawford

Just to refresh your memory, John Crawford was the one in Walmart with a bb gun who got gunned down by police officers.  Click here to read the whole story.

Here is the update, as reported by WCPO:

XENIA, Ohio – A special prosecutor says a grand jury found officers’ actions were justified in the fatal shooting of a man at an Ohio Walmart.

Special Prosecutor Mark Piepmeier said Wednesday the Greene County grand jury in Xenia opted not to indict anyone in the Aug. 5 death of John Crawford III.

Crawford, 22, was found to have been carrying a BB/pellet rifle he picked up in the store. Police said they shot the Fairfield man because he ignored commands to drop the rifle, a statement the man’s family attorney disputes, according to the Dayton Daily News .

Surveillance video of the shooting released at news conference.

The Dayton Daily News reports says the footage shows Crawford holding the air rifle to his shoulder and walking around the store. Several police officers are seen rushing into the Beavercreek Walmart with guns drawn toward Crawford.

Vince Pope, attorney for the officers involved in the shooting, released the following statement: “I believe the grand jury’s decision, it’s absolutely the right decision, that the officers acted well within their training.”

Derrick Foward, president of the Dayton Unit NAACP, disagrees.

“The Special Grand Jury in Greene County made the wrong decision. It’s a sad day in the history of Dayton,” Foward said. “We will be calling for a full and complete investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.”

Crawford’s family previously stated they want federal authorities to investigate whether race was a factor in the shooting. Crawford was black, the officers are white.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he agrees the decision should be evaluated by at a federal level.

“After talking with the Attorney General and watching the video myself, I agree with his decision that a review by the U.S. Department of Justice is appropriate,” Kasich said in a release moments after the decision was announced.

“This is a tragedy for the Crawford family and I share the concern of many in the community that this matter must be handled with the utmost seriousness and respect,” he continued. “I’ve consulted with local leaders, including leaders in the African-American community, and I applaud the example they have set of calm, restraint and patience.”

Oh. And just in case you didn’t know, Ohio is an open carry state.

Shame on this grand jury.  When will this stop? When will “justice” be served?

I’m encouraged by the fact that the governor is on board for federal review, but this should’ve been handled by the grand jury. SMH

Here’s the video surveillance from Walmart:

They shot him…INSTANTLY.  He IMMEDIATELY dropped the gun.

How in the world could the grand jury POSSIBLY come back without an indictment? This was murder!!! He wasn’t doing anything!!!!!

New app connects people to cuddle!

YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So. Y’all know cuffin’ season is underway, right?  This app is RIGHT. ON. TIME.

If you’re interested in cuddling with a stranger, there’s now an app for that. Think Tinder, but without any expectations for dating or something more.

Cuddlr shows the names, pictures, and number of upvotes and downvotes — users rate each other after they cuddle — of users within walking distance of you. Tapping on a photo sends a cuddle request, and the recipient then has 15 minutes to accept or reject. If they accept, you can send them a message, and you’re able to track each of your locations on a map.

What happens when you meet is up to you. The founders encourage users to keep the experience completely platonic. “Unlike some other apps, Cuddlr is strictly about PG-rated experiences. Keep the cuddle a cuddle!” the app’s introduction reads. The app suggests lying together in a park, window shopping, or just hugging. You can see some of the platonic fun in their video below.

“I think as a culture we’re ready to consider cuddling as more than just something that happens before or after sex, but as something worth pursuing in its own right,”founder Charlie Williams told Salon.

You’ll need a Facebook account to register; Facebook is also the source of your Cuddlr profile photo. Cuddlr doesn’t reveal gender or age, so filtering is only by appearance.
