via SI News
In news that shouldn't surprise you, Donald Trump supporters have been sending death threats to a 22-year-old New York City woman after she wore a hat to work with the phrase, "America was never great", a reference to Donald Trump's slogan, "Make America great again."
"The point of the hat was to say America needs changing and improvement," Krystal Lake told SI Live. Along with threats, Trump supporters have urged her employer, Home Depot to fire Lake. "I don't think it's a positive message to say 'Let's look to the past.' Lake realized that a photo of her wearing the hat during her shift had gone viral days later.
"Everyone kept asking me if I was on Facebook or Twitter, which I hadn't been," Lake told SI Live, "and then I saw how many people were sharing [the picture] and that it was going viral. I was honestly shocked—I didn't expect any of this to happen,"
She confirmed that the she plans on wearing the hat again because fuck Donald Trump supporters.
Lee Daniels Does Not Think "Abused" Mariah Carey Is Stable Enough For A Reality Show
Lee Daniels, and anyone who has watched Whitney Houston on "Being Bobby Brown", don't think Mariah Carey is emotionally stable to handle task of being a reality star. Via Page Six:
"She is very fragile, and she has been through a lot. She has been used, she has been abused … Some people don’t have that Teflon sort of thing that I do, so she masks it with this coquettish thing that is hiding her nervousness and her pain and her own family’s abuse to her,” Daniels said. “She is misunderstood, because she is really, really ride or die. She really, really, really will do anything for you.”
Despite Daniels' SMHSMHSMH take on the show, he was "tricked" by MiMi to appear in a scene so we can all watch his disdain for the Emancipation of Reality Star Mimi! (via: Page Six)
