Halifax Police Want To Heal Fractured Relationships With Ice Cream
Halifax Police Chief Kevin Lands is behind the viral video that shows officers pulling over people who expect to get tickets, but there's a catch! He's actually handing out ice cream cones instead. The officer says the idea came from a brainstorm on how to make people smile. In the video, Lands and Officer Brian Warner can be heard telling drivers, "It's actually against the law to drive on a hot day without an ice cream cone" before passing on the treat.
Iggy Azalea Is Making TV Shows Now
In news that makes zero sense, Iggy Azalea has inked a deal with Universal Cable Productions and Wilshire Studios, where she'll create "millennial-focused programming." Alongside producer partner Patrick Hughes of Primary Wave Entertainment, the duo will create scripted and unscripted shows that'll tackle social justice, tolerance, and women empowerment. Remember when Azalea referenced herself a “runaway slave master”?! Remember when Azalea co-opted a post-racial blaccent to sell records?! Fun! (via: Hollywood Reporter)
