Blacks Are Told To Pay First Before Eating At Toronto Restaurant!

Emilie Wickham stands in front of restaurant that discriminated against him.

Even in Canada, Blacks face the same type of discrimination most people of color here face in the United States.

Emilie Wickham and his friends were asked to prepay for their meals at Hong Shing Chinese Restaurant, while no others were required to do so.

This happened in 2014. Wickham went to Toronto's Chinatown for a birthday gathering with his friends. After the server took the order, he told the group that they would have to pay for their meals in full before receiving them.

The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal ordered the restaurant to fork over thousands.

The restaurant claimed that a large group of people often "dine and dash" whenever they come into the establishment. They said that sometimes the restaurant "attract something of a transient crowd."

Wickham felt the restaurant treated him like he was "a potential thief in waiting."

"Before the camera on the cellphone became a popular thing...all we had was our word," Wickham said. "And us calling out how we were treated, our word wasn't good enough, right?"

Reminder, Asian Americans have been hateful towards Blacks.

We mark another year of the Los Angeles riots. This event happened in late April and early May.

If you remember the Los Angeles riots were sparked by years of abuse by the police and bigoted treatment from the Korean grocers in South Los Angeles. The shooting of Latasha Harlins by Soon Ja Du sparked the flame. The Rodney King beating and the jury's acquittal of the four cops lit the fuse and sparked three days of unrest.

Blacks decided to burn down Korean stores and destroyed police vehicles. They also beat down cops, white people and some Asian American merchants. The riots happened in an election year that cost George H.W. Bush a second term.

Shit like this is bubbling up once again. With Black people being killed by police. most are starting to realize that their lives are in danger.

Donald J. Trump being tone deaf to the issues facing Black America. He never called or mentioned James Shaw, Jr.'s role in the Nashville massacre. The young Black man stopped a mass shooter and took a bullet. No response from Trump. However, he is worked up over comedian Michelle Wolf roasting him and Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Black Man Denied Service Over A F**king Coupon!

Link Alexander was denied service at a pizza establishment. The Pizza Inn responds to the controversy.

In the city of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, a Black Man was denied service at a nationally based pizza company called The Pizza Inn.

He goes into the Pizza Inn with a coupon he earned from his employer. The worker questioned the coupon and told the assistant manager. The assistant manager denied the service.

The Black Man gets his White friend to go into the store later that day with the same coupon and got through without any problems.

The White friend posts it on social media and it went viral. Now the Black Man threatens a lawsuit and the local NAACP threaten a boycott of the restaurant.

Link Alexander was one pissed off customer. He felt that his race played a role in how he was served.

“He looks at the card. He looks at me. He was like, ‘So where did you get the card from?'” Alexander said. “It has to be signed by my manager, or my [district manager], and this is neither one of their signatures,” Alexander said the assistant manager told him.
He was turned away from the restaurant and left without any food. In disbelief of the situation, his white roommate, Rex Sterling, posted a video on Facebook to see if the place would allow him to use the coupon.
“I took his coupon, the same one they rejected 2 hours earlier, and went to the same Pizza Inn myself to see if my experience would be any different and also to confront the manager and ask for answers,” Sterling said in his Facebook post.
After presenting his coupon Sterling was offered to sit down and was able to use his coupon for a free meal.
Steve Stancil, who owns the Pizza Inn, said:  “We try to make our procedures clear on coupons but it does not always work. I take full responsibility in that all our managers should be on the same page and obviously they were not.”
Now what do you think about this situation? Is it safe to be Black in Trump's America?
Pizza Inn.
Two California men of color gunned down by police. Both unarmed.

Three white men killed police officers managed to be taken in alive.

Philadelphia Police arrested two men at a Starbucks after a manager called 911.

California Starbucks manager denies a Black customer restroom access. Gave an Asian American customer access.

Waffle House massacre in Nashville. Hero doesn't get a call from Donald J. Trump.

Waffle House customer roughed up Alabama cops after she complained out a surcharge by a rude server.

Now this incident.

Bones To Pick!

Joy Reid apologizes. The far right won't accept it.

So Joy Ann Reid apologized for her past blog.

She admits to using hateful words to attack right wing agitators. She said that she expresses love and gratitude towards the LGBTQ community.

She remarks that she evolved. Her friends, family and co-workers are open about their sexuality. She said that her love for them, people of color and all religions keeps her motivated.

MSNBC stood by her.

Reid isn't a homophobe. She never acted the way of those who criticized her. Think about it. Listen to folks like Pat Robertson, Mark Levin, Tucker Carlson, Mike Pence, old fart Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage. They are homophobes, anti-Muslim and anti-science.

She is anti-conservative. She took shots at one of the most hated media agitators in modern history. His name was revealed as a part of a federal probe into Michael Cohen, the lawyer who paid Stormy Daniels the $130,000 to keep quiet about the affair with the inept leader.

Remember the Sean "Spitball" Hannity feud with Jimmy Kimmel. The annoying conservative agitator and his right wing minions went bananas over Kimmel making a light joke mocking Melania Trump.

Kimmel was called an ass clown by the Spitball. Kimmel on his part called the spitball, a guy who gets organisms whenever Donald J. Trump's in the room.

He said some homophobic things and it caught the attention of gay libertarian agitator Glenn Greenwald. The agitator remarked that Kimmel as well as Reid should face the same pressure as anti-gay agitators like spitball and Laura Ingraham.

The right won't let it go. They don't accept Reid's apology.

They want MSNBC to take action against her and fire her out the cannon.

Reid is still facing an onslaught of conservative attacks because of her blog targeting conservatives in homophobic terms.

Reid was calling out hypocrisy in the conservative bubble.

Reid had addressed The Reid Report back in 2017. She called Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL), Miss Charlie, in regards to his anti-gay stance as then a Republican governor. Crist has evolved and switched parties.

He accepted her apology and supports her.

The gay community came out in defense of her. Notable LGBTQ agitators like Stephanie Miller, Keith Boykin, Danielle Moodie-Mills, Janet Mock, Jon Cooper,  Rachel Maddow, Jonathan Capehart, and PFLAG's Diego Sanchez threw their support to her.

Many in the LGBTQ community believe that Reid as many others have changed their ways. Reminder the early 2000s was a divisive year for those who stood up for gay rights.

Many people now support gay marriage.

Blacks have turned around.

I am supportive of the gay community. They are my friends, my family, my co workers, and human beings too.

Reid has apologized. It's time to move past her and focus on the real issues ahead.

Donald J. Trump, Mike Pence and Republicans aren't friends to the gay community. Trump has tried numerous times to keep LGBTQ from enlisting in the military. You don't hear any complaints from the right and the so called Bernie bros.

A strong black woman who wrote bullshit in the past. Yeah get her ass of the air.

See at least she apologized. She didn't double down in controversy like Spitball Hannity. The fool is a slumlord. He cheated on his wife. The truth will expose him as a phony conservative. He will be exposed.

John McCain In Dire Straits!

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his daughter Meghan. The View host is hinting the end is near for her dad.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is preparing for the end. The former 2008 Republican nominee was diagnosed with brain cancer and it's seems to be taking a toll on the maverick.

The news hasn't hit the fan yet but family members are hinting that the longtime Arizona senator is dying.

Conservative agitator and The View co-host Meghan McCain and her husband Ben Domenech hinted that the end is near for the former POW.

McCain, the senior senator of Arizona has often been a bipartisan type of lawmaker. There were times he would support Donald J. Trump when it comes to his support for ripping off the poor, taking away healthcare and keeping tax cuts permanent for the rich.

On immigration, McCain supported comprehensive immigration reform.

On using military force, McCain and best buddy Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) would beat that war drum. They believe they support military intervention in most conflicts.

McCain would be best known for plucking that goofball as his running mate. In 2008, McCain made the visit to Dayton, Ohio to announce his running mate.

He picked Sarah Palin, a fairly new governor from Alaska who proved to be the reasons to why Republicans are so stupid. Palin paved the way for that inept billionaire to become the leader of this shithole nation.

McCain would lose in a landslide to Barack Obama, a fairly new senator from Illinois. The deck was stacked against McCain. George W. Bush, his former opponent in 2000 and then president fucked up the economy and made life miserable for millions. Obama was a fresh face, the first Black candidate to win support from the Democratic Party. A guy who used the skills of a community organizer to rally new voters to the polls. A tactic that Republicans seized upon in 2016.

McCain faced challenges from far right nuts like J.D. Hayworth and Kelly Ward in his primary bids. He would successfully defeat them and went on to handily win another term as senator.

McCain has seven children. Three from ex-wife Carol. Three but one adopted from Cindy McCain.

John S. McCain IV, Bridgett McCain, Andrew McCain, Sidney McCain, Doug McCain, James McCain and Meghan McCain.

McCain despite his buffoonery as a lawmaker and presidential candidate was a hero among a lot of folks. He would often go against his party on many issues. He did respect his former rival Barack Obama.

He does not respect Donald J. Trump.

Trump mocked him saying he doesn't like those who serve getting captured.

Tom Brokaw Felt #MeToo!

Tom Brokaw under fire for allegations of misconduct.

The #MeToo Movement hits a veteran of the news media.

Former NBC and Fox News anchor says that veteran broadcaster Tom Brokaw sexually harassed her.

Linda Vester made the claim that the longtime NBC host and commentator said inappropriate things to her while she worked at the network.

Vester talks to Variety about the experience.

Brokaw responds back.

It is 4:00 am on the first day of my new life as an accused predator in the universe of American journalism. I was ambushed and then perp walked across the pages of The Washington Post and Variety as an avatar of male misogyny, taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half century of journalism and citizenship.
I am angry, hurt and unmoored from what I thought would be the final passage of my life and career, a mix of written and broadcast journalism, philanthropy and participation in environmental and social causes that have always given extra meaning to my life.
Instead I am facing a long list of grievances from a former colleague who left NBC News angry that she had failed in her pursuit of stardom. She has unleashed a torrent of unsubstantiated criticism and attacks on me more than twenty years after I opened the door for her and a new job at Fox news.
Linda Vester was given the run of the Washington Post and Variety to vent her grievances, to complain that I tickled her without permission (you read that right), that I invaded her hotel room, accepted an invitation to her apartment under false pretenses and in general was given a free hand to try to destroy all that I have achieved with my family, my NBC career, my writing and my citizenship.
My family and friends are stunned and supportive. My NBC colleagues are bewildered that Vester, who had limited success at NBC News, a modest career at Fox and a reputation as a colleague who had trouble with the truth was suddenly the keeper of the flame of journalistic integrity.
Her big charge: that on two occasions more than 20 years ago I made inappropriate and uninvited appearances in her apartment and in a hotel room. As an eager beginner, Vester, like others in that category, was eager for advice and camaraderie with senior colleagues. She often sought me out for informal meetings, including the one she describes in her New York hotel room. I should not have gone but I emphatically did not verbally and physically attack her and suggest an affair in language right out of pulp fiction.
She was coy, not frightened, filled with office gossip including a recent rumor of an affair. As that discussion advanced she often reminded me she was a Catholic and that she was uncomfortable with my presence. So I left, 23 years later to be stunned by her melodramatic description of the meeting. A year or so later, as I passed through London after covering end of WWII ceremonies in Moscow, I saw her in the office. chatted and agreed to a drink later. (If NY was so traumatic, why a reunion?)  She knew a bar but by that late hour it was closed so she suggested her nearby apartment (not, “Well, no where to go. See you tomorrow).
Again, her hospitality was straight forward with lots of pride in her reporting in the Congo and more questions about NY opportunities.
As I remember, she was at one end of a sofa, I was at the other. It was late and I had been up for 24 hours. As I got up to leave I may have leaned over for a perfunctory goodnight kiss but my memory is that it happened at the door – on the cheek. No clenching her neck. That move she so vividly describes is NOT WHO I AM. Not in high school, college or thereafter.
She came to NY and had mixed success on the overnight news. As I remember her try out on TODAY did not go well. Her contract was not renewed.
Here is a part of her story she somehow left out. I think I saw her in the hallways and asked how it was going. She was interested in cable start up and I said I didn’t think that was going anywhere. What about Fox, which was just building up? She was interested and followed me to my office where, while she listened in, I called Roger Ailes. He said, “send her over.”
She got the job. I never heard from her or saw her again. I was aware that she became a big fan of Ailes, often praising his considerable broadcasting instincts in public. But when he got in trouble on sexual matters, not a peep from this woman who now describes her self as the keeper of the flame for Me:Too.
I am not a perfect person. I’ve made mistakes, personally and professionally. But as I write this at dawn on the morning after a drive by shooting by Vester, the Washington Post and Variety, I am stunned by the free ride given a woman with a grudge against NBC News, no distinctive credentials or issue passions while at FOX.
Linda Vester.
As a private citizen who married a wealthy man she has been active in social causes but she came to Me:Too late, portraying herself as a den mother. In the intervening years since we met on those two occasions, she had no reason to worry I could affect her career.
Some of her relatives by marriage are very close friends. She couldn’t pick up the phone and say, “I’d like to talk. I have issues from those two meetings 20 years ago?” Instead she became a character assassin. Strip away all of the hyperbole and what has she achieved? What was her goal? Hard to believe it wasn’t much more Look At Me than Me:Too.
I deeply resent the pain and anger she inflicted on my wife, daughters and granddaughters – all women of considerable success and passion about women’s rights which they personify in their daily lives and professions. We’ll go on as a family that pursues social justice in medical emergency rooms, corporate offices, social therapy, African women’s empowerment and journalism. And no one woman’s assault can take that away.
I am proud of who I am as a husband, father, grandfather, journalist and citizen. Vester, the Washington Post and Variety cannot diminish that. But in this one woman piece of sensational claims they are trying.
Tom Brokaw
He said that Vester had a problem with the truth and the accusations against him were flat out lies.

Vester claimed that Brokaw tried to forcibly kiss her without her permission.

According to her, Brokaw twice tried to force a sexual relationship on her.

She eventually left NBC to join Fox News. As you know, Fox News is facing controversy for allowing sexual harassment to go unnoticed for years.

So could another famous face go down?

If Bill Cosby can fall, so could Tom Brokaw.

Michelle Wolf Hosts Nerd Prom 2018!

The White House Correspondent's Dinner 2018 begins tonight.

This event is held on the last Saturday in April. Every year, the junk food media, Broadway, Hollywood and Washington gather together to attend an annual ribbingof each other in the honor of a free press.

The WHCD hands out scholarships to those who want to inspire in the task of reporting the news and offers opportunities for young journalists to explore the gift of writing.

Donald J. Trump will not be in attendence again.

He decided to campaign in suburban Detroit to highlight his many accomplishments as leader of this shithole country.

Trump blasted the junk food media as being dishonest.

He also lauded at the junk food media for not promoting his accomplishments.

The Daily Show's Michelle Wolf will do her best to discuss the issues that happen to make the news.

Both events.

Trump in Michigan


Joy Reid: I Am Awaken To The Dangers Of Hate!

Joy Reid addresses her critics once again. 

On MSNBC, Joy Reid responds to the controversy sparked by her old blog The Reid Report. The progressive agitator facimg calls for a cannon firing after a blogger unearthed her old blog through the Internet Wayback Machine.

She targeted conservatives, former governor now lawmaker Charlie Crist and others in these posts.

The agitator denies writing those things. She claimed that she was a victim of a hacking campaign. However, she did take one good step to calming the controversy, she apologizes.

On AM Joy, she remarks.

Now as expected, the right wont let it go. The very same folks who've attacked people of color, the LGBTQ community and Muslims are now all of sudden supporters of their causes. They continue to be bigots.

The progressive agitator made it clear, she was deeply sorry about homophobic remarks she made against conservative agitators and lawmakers.

Reid also addressed the issue of how Black America managed to overcome the homophobia. Blacks are still more conservative on gay marriage.

Again, you notice that Reid apologizes for her past.

Sean "Spitball" Hannity hasn't apologized for his past. Matter of fact, he has doubled down on most of the shit he's gotten himself into.

The Guardian reports that the annoying comservative agitator is a landlord to mulitple properties and is comstantly jacking up rent. The spitball was named as a client to embattled attorney for Donald J. Trump, Michael Cohen.

Reid hammered the spitball for weeks.

Most believe its a retilation tactic from supporters of Sean "Spitball" Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Roger Stone.

Those three are facing a boycott.

Keep this in mind, people do change. If you are a progressive, you support progress.

Joy Reid is a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ community. Whatever the noise says won't keep her down. We need some Joy.

A Grumpy Old Man On A Grumpy Old Network!

This is the man in excellent health, people.

Donald J. Trump called into the right wing morning show Thursday and let me say, I wish I was awake to watch this.

He just gave his opponents more reasons to question his leadership.

Okay, 30 minutes of rambling on Fox & Friends and you judge this for yourself.

A Tale Of Two Koreas!

Does Donald J. Trump deserve credit for the brokered deal between two Koreas?

The two nations decided the time is now.

President Kim Jong Un and President Moon Jae In shakehands at the Korean Demilitarized Zome. This a huge mark in history. The Republic of Korea and the People's Democratic Republic of Korea call a truce.

Both nations vow to end nuclear weapons.

Many here claim Trump was instrumental in brokering a deal to end this.

I don't want to give credit to him.

I give credit to Moon Jae In and Kim Jong Un.

The United States for nearly 75 years has been agitating the peninsula. Trump was beating the war drum and banned American travel to North Korea,

Otto Warmbier was brutally assaulted in North Korea. Trump vowed to bring the country down.

Now the right wants a Nobel Peace Prize for him. Given he won't do anything about gun violence in the United States. He won't support press freedom. He is hypocritical when making decisions.

Remember this month he launched an attack on Syria to take out chemical weapons.

BREAKING: Bill Cosby Served In Rape Trial!

The fall of an iconic comedian.

The Pennsylvania court found washed up entertainer Bill Cosby guilty of sexual assault.

The incident in 2004 was his downfall. He was convicted of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand.

All three charges of sexual assault carry 10 years in the iron college. So about 30 years in the iron college is basically LIFE.

Cosby who was a household name in American television was accused of sexually assaulting over 60 women.

This led to a domino effect that ensnared men from all backgrounds.

The #MeToo movement is happening.

Cosby left court immediately and is planning on an appeal.

This is a big deal.

More postings soon.

Ronny Jackson Bows Out!

Ronny Jackson takes himself out the running.
The gift that keeps on giving.

Navy rear admiral and White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson withdraws his nomination for Veterans Affairs Secretary after allegations of misconduct and ethics came up.

Trump fired David Shulkin out the cannon after allegations he spent too much on trips and the failure of streamlining veterans with quality service.

Shulkin said that he was fired out the cannon because he disagreed with privatizing the VA.

Many Democrats and even Republicans were questioning Jackson after reports of him acting a fool while under the booze.

He also was accused of giving Percocet to individuals and himself.

Jackson was known for giving Donald J. Trump his physical.

“It is called genetics ... Some people have just great genes. I told the president that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old.”

“I can reliably say, and I think that the folks in the mental health [field] would back me up on the fact that if he had some kind of mental, cognitive issue, that this test is sensitive enough, it would have picked up on it. He would not have got 30 out of 30 ... And my personal experience is that he has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever.” 

Jackson claims Trump has great health. Many believe the inept leader has early stages of dementia and is overweight.

Jackson's nomination went up in flames. Really sad that Trump doesn't ask his staffers to vet these people.

Twigs & Roses!

Why won't you just go away!
The disgraced CBS News and PBS host Charlie Rose is trying to do a documentary about how he ended up in the unemployment line thanks to the #MeToo Movement.

He will likely gather up disgraced individuals and do a follow up to how their lives were ruined by their actions.

Matt Lauer, Bill O'Reilly, Eric Bolling, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Al Franken, Morgan Spurlock, Tavis Smiley, Mario Batali, Russell Simmons, Louis CK, Mark Halperin and Roy Moore are prime examples of how the #MeToo Movement took off.

Thanks to Donald J. Trump, his lawyer, his softball and his entire crew could go down in flames. You can thank Stormy Daniels and #MeToo.

Rose who was a fixture on CBS This Morning with Gayle King and Nora O'Donnell was fired out the cannon in November after reports from The Washington Post detailed his inappropriate behavior while working at PBS, his syndicated show and CBS.
How the mighty have fallen!
Women claimed that the 75 year old agitator would parade around them in the nude. He would forcefully kiss them. He groped two interns and had slept with a handful of them while his long time girlfriend was away.

The allegations got so hot, the network executives had no choice but to fire his ass out the cannon.

The Charlie Rose Show was cancelled and CBS fired him quickly.

John Dickerson took the position and would later resign from Face The Nation. He moved from Washington, DC to New York to fulfill his role as a morning host.

Margaret Brennan is now the permanent host of Face the Nation.

Should we even go there?

Charlie Rose needs to go back into the grave he's dug for himself.

Kanye West Offered Trump Some Of That Dragon Energy!

Blonde ambition.
The controversy continues.

Yeezy is about to release two albums this year. There will be a full length album and a collaboration album with Kid Cudi.

In the meantime, let's take a deep look into Kanye West's support for the inept leader Donald J. Trump.

The hip-hop community is talking about the Chicago rapper/producer's support for a leader who treats the nation like it's one big reality television show.

A man who has said some pretty foul shit about people of color.

Here's West on social media.

Here is Trump's response to Kanye West and his praise of him.

What does it say about Yeezy and his support for Trump?

He once famously said that "George Bush doesn't care about Black people."

Now all of a sudden, "Obama in office eight years and nothing in Chicago changed."

People are claiming that the entertainer is having another meltdown.

Not so fast.

Kim Kardashian West comes out swinging against those who attacked her husband. The celebrity agitator said that while they don't discuss politics, she said that her husband is free to speak his mind. She doesn't want the junk food media to claim that every time he's on a rant, it's mental illness.

Just in case you get upset at the rapper look at the pictures below and then tell me is it worth your time?

Yeah, you can blame Barack Obama all you want. At the end of the day, Obama's policies will be remembered for the success. Not Trump nor the rich bastards he was willing to protect with that tax cut.

Kanye West and Kim K are the rich ones aren't they?

Golfing While Black!

Five Black women playing golf were harassed by the law. The owner called the law on them after he accused of them of playing slow. One of the women is a local NAACP leader.
Well I guess it's a golf course now.

An owner of a golf course called the law on Black women who were taking too long on the green.

This happened in the rust belt city of York, Pennsylvania.

Major celebrities are pissed at the situation that happened at the Grandview Golf Course in Dover Township, a community near York.

Black America knows that the golf course continues to be the most segregated place in the country. You may remember how right wing extremists were worked up over Barack Obama hitting the links. They see no problem with Donald J. Trump going to the links at his own properties on the taxpayer's dime.

Whenever a conservative white person sees a Black person on the golf course, they cringe at the very sight of that person.

Tiger Woods experienced this stuff too.

Sandra Thompson and her friends, Myneca Ojo, Carolyn Dow, Sandra Harrison and Karen Crosby had the law called on them after they were discussing the next hole after they finished.

The owner a former county commissioner named Steve Chronister confronts the women. He told them to keep playing. Three of the women decided to end the game early. The other two continued on.

A few moments later Chronister, his son and a few other men confronted the women.

And of course, the law was called. Thompson, the local chapter president of the NAACP immediately uploaded the video and it went viral.

The law didn't arrest the women but it did rile them up. A simple disagreement over playing time led to the cops being called.

The golf course apologized. It was forced after many celebrities like John Legend, Soledad O'Brien and Shaun King spoke out against it.

The golf course vows to reinstate their memberships and have a formal discussion with the women. 

Yeah, like the Waffle House in Mobile and Starbucks in Philadelphia, white people spooked by Black patrons call the law to have them removed.

This stuff has been getting out of hand for sometime. 

This continues as long as we keep Donald J. Trump and Republicans in control of government.

Enough is enough.

The More You Reid, The Less You're Gonna Like!

MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid with Rachel Maddow. The right wants to take down Reid. They are outraged by her anti-LGBTQ comments. The same bigots that hate her, hate the gay community.
AM Joy celebrates two years on the air.

The MSNBC show is a hit among weekend viewers. The host is an African American woman who took on issues from the left. She battled Republicans, Democrats and yes, Killer Mike. She has a following of 1.2 million on social media.

She is also controversial and the right has long complained about the "double standard."

In light of the controversial remarks on her old blog dissing conservatives with homophobic dings, should Joy Ann Reid face a boycott like Laura Ingraham and Sean "Softball" Hannity?

Yeah. Joy Reid should be boycotted for her comments. It was wrong that she used homophobic remarks targeting conservatives.
Nope. Joy Reid may have said ugly remarks in the past, but she wasn't attacking the LGBTQ community. She was dissing Republicans and conservatives who supported hateful agendas.
I don't know. If she was forgiven by those she dissed, why should we get upset over it? Some never apologize for their comments. I'll wait til something is done by her bosses before I respond.
I don't know. Joy Reid and some on MSNBC said things in the past. But if you're supportive or objective towards them. That's your right. You can change the channel or block rhetoric on social media.

The conservatives are targeting Joy Ann Reid of MSNBC for her past comments against anti-LGBTQ conservatives and Republicans.

Reid had used homophobic comments to target Republicans and conservative agitators in the past.

The Internet Wayback Machine has unearth The Reid Report, a blog created by the progressive agitator back when she was a South Florida commentator.

Now the right is hoping advertisers boycott her show AM Joy in response.

This is a retilation tactic by the fans of embattled assholes Sean "Spitball" Hannity and Laura Ingraham. Both right wing carnival barkers are facing backlash. Ingraham attacked Parkland survivor David Hogg. It earned her a boycott that cost her 45 sponsors.

The spitball lost 20 sponsors after he ran the Seth Rich kookspiracy, defended Roy Moore and failed to disclose ties to Michael Cohen, Donald J. Trump's troubled lawyer.

Reid claims her old blog was hacked by nefarious activists. She called upon most of the postings being misleading.

Reid was a harsh critic of Charlie Crist, the former governor of Florida who was then an anti-gay Republican. He since changed his way and now became a Democratic lawmaker. His predecessor is MSNBC commentator David Jolly, a former Republican lawmaker who left the party.
Joy Reid with MSNBC transgender commentator Janet Mock.
Reid has been on fire taking on Fox News for conflicts of interest. The minions of Spitball Hannity and Roger Stone are all over this.

Mind you, I changed on my views of the LGBTQ community. I work with them.

There are friends, co workers and family members who are LGBTQ.

Reid who is not anti-LGBT credits her mentor Rachel Maddow for her success.

While many of the comments targeted Ann Coulter, Spitball Hannity, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mike Pence and others, Reid's post are fucked up.

The LGBTQ community should respond appropriately to her. Matter of fact, Reid will likely respond to the critics. Obviously, she controls the blog and should take full responsibility for it. I don't want to say too much about it. Reid had addressed it.

She even apologized to Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) for the past remarks.

Yes, people hacked my blog before. They have altered things. I had my images superimposed on stupid shit.

The folks at Wayback Machine said the excuse is bullshit.  They want her to own up to the past postings and move on.

The folks at PFLAG resinded the award that she was presented. They do thank her for the support but the past comments have made them nervous.

PFLAG National—the nation’s first and largest organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people, their families, and allies—today has rescinded its Straight for Equality in Media award to political analyst Joy Reid.
Said PFLAG National president Jean Hodges, “When we extended our invitation to Ms. Reid to honor her at our 45th anniversary celebration, we did so knowing about the blog posts from the late 2000s regarding Charlie Crist. We appreciated how she stepped up, took ownership, apologized for them, and did better—this is the behavior and approach we ask of any ally. However, in light of new information, and the ongoing investigation of that information, we must at this time rescind our award to Ms. Reid.”
So any thoughts to the controversy?

Should Joy Ann Reid face the same fate as Laura Ingraham and Sean "Softball" Hannity?
