270% Of Republican Insiders Want Trump To Drop Out
In news that shouldn't shock you, the majority of #TeamGOP is not on Trump's side. In a poll conducted by The POLITICO Caucus, 70 percent of anonymous (of course) Republican insiders said that they want Trump to drop out of the race and be replaced by another GOP candidate. A short list of candidates include Paul Ryan and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Like a nasty virus that just won't go away, Trump shows no signs of disappearing. (via: Politico)
Drake vs. Hot 97
n an impromptu freestyle during last night's Madison Square Garden show, Drake called out Hot 97 OG DJ Funk Flex rapping, “I told ‘em fire Funk Flex and then I’ll come and do your show,” before referencing his rumored upcoming collaboration with Kanye West: “Plus me and Kanye, we just left out the studio.” Remember the iconic Meek Mill vs Drizzy feud? Funk Flex instigated the entire beef by leaking several reference tracks sent to Drake.
Funk Flex aside, last night's diss came after fellow Hot 97 host Ebro Darden claimed that Drake told him he was ready to diss Eminem should the Detroit rapper start the beef. In a tweet following Drake's freestyle, Funk Flex responded on Twitter writing, "Hahahaha!!! 7pm Sat I got a story to tell! @Drake u gonna learn!"

The FTC is coming for celebs and influencers pimping out product on social media, otherwise known as #sponcon. According to Bloomberg, the Federal Trade Commission is planning to enforce stricter guidelines, noting that sponsored content hashtags like #sp or #ad are not clear enough indications that the content is compensated. Bloggers argue that it's hard to keep their own message and brand messaging under 140 characters. Meanwhile, DOES ANYONE ACTUALLY EVEN READ HASHTAGS ANYMORE? (via: Bloomberg)
Viola Davis On 'Suicide Squad': "Sometimes You Do A Job For Money"
via: Suicide Squad
In an interview with BET, Oscar winner and best friend in my head, Viola Davis responded to critics who have side-eyed her role in "Suicide Squad".
"They don't understand the lack of choices or the choices that we make. They don't know the whole back story," she said. "By the time they come to the theatre, they're looking at the end product. They don't understand that sometimes, this is the best you can do with what you've been given. They don't understand the deprivation that's involved in the profession. That 95 percent of us are unemployed at any given time, so sometimes, you do a job for the money." This blunt realness, tea and slight shade to David Ayer's shit show is why Viola Davis is a national treasure forever. (via BET)
