Whoopi Goldberg Calls Out Roseanne on ‘The View’ for Trying to Drag Her Into Cancellation Controversy

Published

on

Goldberg issues a stern warning to Barr: “Just because you were caught with your pants down, don’t try and drag other people down with you.”

 

The women of “The View” praised parent company ABC for canceling “Roseanne” Wednesday morning, while taking aim at the axed actress for spreading fake news about them overnight on Twitter.

After her show was given the boot, Barr returned to social media on Tuesday night, where she began liking and retweeting fans expressing outrage over the news. Amid the Twitter spree, she shared a doctored photo of Whoopi Goldberg — as well as a Photoshopped tweet from Joy Behar– as her followers cried “hypocrisy” over her firing.

Though Roseanne has since deleted the retweets, journalist Yashar Ali came through with the receipts.

After saying she thought it was “amazing” that ABC canceled her show, Whoopi addressed Roseanne directly. “She also retweeted a false picture of me. Now some bonehead Photoshopped a horrific image on the shirt and she retweeted this,” she said. “This is what I’m going to say, Roseanne. Just because you were caught with your pants down, don’t try and drag other people down with you. Don’t do that. There are times when, yeah, you gotta suck it up because you stepped in do.”

Meghan McCain added, “This is about you being a racist,” then pointed at Goldberg and Behar to clarify, “Dragging you and you into this, you didn’t do anything wrong.”

“The bottom line is simply this: I didn’t fake my shirt, someone else faked my shirt. But that’s your tweet. That tweet came from you,” said Whoopi. “That’s yours. You did this to yourself.”

While Behar has defended controversial jokes from comedians in the past, she said this comment was indefensible. “I always defend comedians, pretty much, because we’re under the gun a lot, we’re trying to get a laugh mostly. We stick our foot in our mouths a lot, I’ve done it many times, I’ve had to apologize many times,” she explained. “But I just felt like this went over the line and when you talk about racism, this is really a bad thing. This is an egregious offense. Even though I still say we all make mistakes, mea culpa, it went over the line so I can’t defend it.”

Sunny Hostin also applauded ABC for its decision. “She has a history of tweeting things that are inappropriate,” she said. “I think when you cross that kind of societal norm, you must pay the consequence. Firing her was the right thing to do, I’m thrilled ABC did it.” Hostin added she was “saddened” the show’s cast and crew had to suffer because of Roseanne’s actions.

Lizzo Trying to Manifest Banging Drake After New Song Name-Drop

Published

on

Lizzo says she name-dropped Drake in her new song to turn the tables on an age-old trope of rappers doing the same for women — but it seems she’s actually trying to bang the dude.

During an interview with Zane Lowe, the singer mentioned Drake on her new song with Cardi B, “Rumors,” because she felt it’d be fun to give society a taste of its own medicine — and in this context, that means flipping the script on rappers/male musicians name-dropping fine women in their tunes.

If you didn’t hear the bar yet, it goes … “Last year, I thought I would losе it // Readin’ s*** on the internet // My smoothie cleanse and my diet // No, I ain’t f*** Drake yet (Ha).”

The Drake thing seems to have come out of left field … but Lizzo explained further in the ZL sit-down, jokingly saying she hasn’t quite been able to manifest some bedroom boom with Toronto’s Certified Lover Boy — even though it sounds like she’d love to take a dip.

All kidding aside, Lizzo says she included the line as a way to turn what rappers have often done in music — namely, name-dropping ladies/would-be sexual exploits — upside down on its head. It’s true … fellas have done that for a long time in the genre .

As far as their real-life relationship … Lizzo says she kinda knows Drake, and that he’s super cool.

Still, it seems she does, in fact, want some of what he’s got — at least based on her Twitter activity shortly after this interview aired. She tweeted right at Champagne Papi for the whole world to see, writing … “Hey big head @Drake.” Classic “wyd” vibes for modern dating.

Aubrey hasn’t publicly responded yet … but wouldn’t that be something if he did??? Unfortunately for her, he seems to have his hands full with
Johanna Leia and other things these days.

Boxer Gervonta Davis Involved in Minor Plane Crash, Documents Aftermath

Published

on

Gervonta Davis just, miraculously, walked away from a plane crash relatively unscathed — and it sounds like what’s hurting him the most in the aftermath are his feet … and his caboose.

The professional boxer went live Saturday to document a terrifying encounter he says he and his crew had just gone through after boarding a private jet … which apparently failed to properly take off and crash landed back down to the airport grounds it was trying to leave.

Thankfully, it doesn’t appear the aircraft got very far up before coming back down to Earth — because Gervonta and other passengers seemed more or less okay … with their health and bodies intact.

That’s not to say Gervonta wasn’t feeling some hurt afterwards — on his live feed, he noted that his booty was aching like no other … this while he wrapped his feet in gauze. He’s pretty jovial about the whole thing, which is great to see, but this could’ve easily been way worse.

Gervonta also was able to get some shots of the downed plane, and it sure looks like something went wrong internally. There were also fire engines that showed up on the scene to evaluate the damage and tend to anyone’s injuries. Again, though, most everyone seems to be fine … which is absolutely incredible, because it appears there were even children aboard, based on a photo Gervonta posted shortly before getting on his flight. His video doesn’t capture any kids, though.

It’s unclear what exactly caused the malfunction — but you can hear Gervonta and his friends speculate on what happened … seems like there might’ve been some overheating of some sort. They also appear to be discussing some of the flight maneuvers the pilot(s) were using in the air … and the group seems to think that may have attributed to it going down.

Stay tuned while we here at Prestige try to get a hold of Gervonta’s team for more answers.

Drake Takes Shot at Kanye in New Verse, Calls Him ‘Burnt Out’

Published

on

Drake is stirring the pot again on his rap beef with Kanye West — taking a new shot at the guy in a song he just dropped with Trippie Redd … and it might be the ultimate insult.

The rapper is featured on TR’s new track, “Betrayal,” and at one point in Drizzy’s verse, he brings up Mr. West by name … acknowledging that they are, indeed, still apparently beefing — while also going so far as to call Kanye “burnt out” … and noting it’s irrelevant to him.

Here’s how the Kanye bar goes … “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know // Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go // Ye ain’t changin’ s*** for me, it’s set in stone.” He adds … “Rollin’ stones, heavy stones (PinkGrillz) // Precious stone, let me make my presence known.”

The “Ye” reference could possibly be interpreted as “they” or “you” — but based on Drake touching Kanye’s exact age (44) … it seems clear he meant the former with some clever word play. The folks over at Genius heard it too … they wrote out the lyric as “Ye.”

Now, for some analysis — as to why Drake is randomly bringing up Kanye again after years have passed since they beefed, with Pusha T in the mix, is anyone’s guess at this point.

However, some people have a theory on these old foes — there’s been speculation of late that Kanye is, perhaps, trying to set up his “Donda” release so that it lines up with Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” album … which he’s on record as saying would be out by the end of summer at the latest. That’s just a few weeks away … and neither project has dropped.

There’s no evidence to prove it one way or another … but the fact that Kanye continues to delay the release date — with seemingly no end in sight — is curious in this context. That, coupled with the fact that Drake’s going after him anew, is even more eyebrow-raising.

In any case, we’re always here for some new beef. And, if it means more music from these two in the process … we’ll take it and then some. Ball’s in your court, Ye (we think).
