"Bratz" and "LOL Surprise" creator went against influencer who accused them of copying image

The founder and CEO of the company that makes Bratz and LOL Surprise dolls, Isaac Larian, ranted against Amina Mucciolo, influencer who accused the company of copying her image.

The company denies the alleged theft, and that they copied her looks to base a doll off.

Mucciolo, used Instagram account to promote her party decor business, with a colorful style of rainbows and patterns.

In 2019, Mucciolo claims she received DMs from followers who asked "if I knew that LOL Surprise made me into a doll." When she checked out the photos of the doll, she said she was shocked. "The first thing I noticed was the exact replica of an aqua hairstyle with rainbow highlights, it was shocking because it was the result of my imagination, so it was disturbing to see something that came straight from my mind, to be duplicated on a toy that I had no part in creating."

According to the company, the doll in question, "Rainbow Raver," was released in June 2019. LOL Surprise responded on June 10, denying her allegations and saying the doll has been in development since September 2018. That's when Isaac Larian got involved. He fired off a series of attacks, calling her "a disgrace to black people and the BLM cause" and a "liar and coward." He has since deleted the attacks.

The defense of the company is that the creative team was inspired by trends in pop culture, designed after music festival fashions, respecting artistry and creativity but will tirelessly protect their intellectual property against any damaging behavior.

After a noose was found hanging in Nascar driver Bubba Wallace's stall, Nascar notified the FBI of the incident and it is now being investigated.

Wallace is the only full-time African American driver in the stock-car circuit’s elite Cup Series. When speaking about the incident, Wallace called it a "despicable act of racism and hatred [that] leaves me incredibly saddened and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society".

With the incident rightfully overshadowing the event, fellow drivers pushed the car along pit row to the start of the field for the national anthem, with many more drivers and team members walking behind. The show of support, including the hashtag #IStandWithBubba painted on the grass nearby.

The action left Wallace in tears.

This made me cry :( He's really brave and I hope they catch whoever did this

Nicki Minaj, loving sister of convicted child rapist Jelani Maraj and wife of registered child sex offender Kenneth Petty, is celebrating today, as her collaboration with Daniel "6ix9ine" Hernandez, who in 2015 pled guilty to a felony count of "use of a child in a sexual performance" debuts atop the Billboard Hot 100.

"TROLLZ," the first version of which was officially released on June 12 (an alternative "first take" was released four days later), debuts on the chart with 116,000 copies sold in the US, giving it the biggest first week since Taylor Swift and Brendan Urie's "ME!" debuted in May 2019.

This is Minaj's second No. 1 (in 10 years)—she earned her first earlier in 2020, when her guest verse on a remix of Doja Cat's "Say So" helped propel the already-hit song to the top—and 6ix9ine's first.

Charlize Theron talks about her past relationship with Sean Penn and marriage


In a interview with Howard Stern on his SiriusXM show, Charlize talks about the extent of her relationship with ex-boyfriend Sean Penn (the relationship was from late 2013 through early 2015) and if she'll ever marry.

On rumors on that they were engaged: “What? That’s not true. no. I did not ‘almost get married to Sean,’ that’s such bulls–t. No, we dated, that was literally all we did, we dated. It was a relationship, for sure. We were definitely exclusive, but it was for barely a year. We never moved in. I was never going to marry him. It was nothing like that”.

Stern asks "if she has ever felt lonely or if she’s ever thought about getting married?", Charlize states: “I never wanted to get married. That’s never been something that’s important to me. On the lives of my children, I’ve never been lonely. I’ve never felt alone.”

She continues saying: "My life right now just doesn’t allow a lot of room for something like that to happen. But in saying that, there’s not this thing that drives me [to have a romantic relationship]. I enjoy being set up on dates but I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to live with somebody again. To be totally frank, they might have to buy the house next to me. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to deal with that ever again, I’m too old for that s–t.”
