Puerto Rican actor calls out Puerto Rican real estate market favoring foreigners

Ismael cruz Córdova, Puerto Rican actor, used his Instagram stories to share that he’s been trying, for 2 years now, to invest and buy a house for himself in Puerto Rico, but that realtors and agents don’t respond back to his texts and emails. He decided to conduct an experiment with a British friend of his that has an Anglo Saxon sounding name, revealing that 100% of the calls, texts and emails from the friend were returned almost immediately. He also added that of the places he personally contacted, only one directly stated that they prefer European investors/buyers.

He finishes his story by saying he is hurt by the state of his country and how his own people are promoting the displacement of the people from Puerto Rico.

The following video adds context and explains the situation that the island is going through due to its unique political situation and current legislation.

Iggy Azalea Calls Out Online Users Who Wouldn't Use Apple's Digital Legacy

Apple recently introduced "Digital Legacy," which would allow a user to assign someone they trust with access to their Apple ID, including phone, photos, notes, reminders, text messages, call history, voice memos, Safari bookmarks, and more after they pass away. Many replies in the original Pop Crave tweet were resistant to giving access to anyone, which prompted Eggz to tweet, "Crazy that so many of you wouldn’t like this. what weirdo shit do 80% of you have to hide? Scary.
Secondly... I absolutely would want my family to have access to all my writing & pictures if I had passed away."

Would you give complete access of your phone to a family member or friend after you passed away?

Lily Collins Reacts to a Defaced ‘Emily in Paris’ Poster


Oh mon Dieu!

A poster for Netflix's “Emily in Paris” got the graffiti treatment.

On Sunday, Collins shared an Instagram video showing her husband (Charlie McDowell) walking down the street, he then stops in “shock” when he sees the defaced poster and runs away. In addition to some scribbles over the show title, Emily’s eyes and nose have been given a pink, zombie-like look, with skeleton-esque squiggles over the character’s mouth.

“I can’t say I love the new look, Em. But A for effort...,” Collins captioned the pic.

It is not exactly clear which city this poster was defaced in, but presumably it's NYC?

The 10-episode Season 2 of “Emily in Paris” dropped on Netflix December 22.

An excuse to talk about Season 2? If this show gets renewed for a third season I'll consider giving it a... how do you say? Tag. Maybe.


Morbius Pushed Back 2 months

Due to people "not living in fear" and "going back to normal" in tandem with an unhelpful government, all contributing to the rise of Omnicron, the movie has been pushed back.

From Jan 28th to April 1st, fitting for a fool.


Ed Sheeran was bullied for being ginger because of South Park

The 2005 episode of South Park left Ed Sheeran seeing red. In a recent interview, the British pop star said that “Ginger Kids”, “fucking ruined my life.”

The episode had Cartman bullying ginger children, claiming they had no souls, after a prank by Stan and Kyle he believed that had contracted “gingervitis,” which in turn prompted him to lead a violent “Ginger Separatist Movement.”

Sheeran said before “Ginger Kids” aired, “red hair in England was always a thing that people took the piss out of you for… And then I remember that episode coming out and that was just it worldwide for the rest of my life.”

Donald Trump Jr. is Engaged to A Woman Who is NOT Aubrey O'Day

I hate me for loving you, hate you for letting our love die
I hate me for loving you, hate you for letting our love die

-Aubrey O'Day, "DTJ""DTJ"

If you can believe it, some woman has agreed to marry Donald Trump, Jr. And, shockingly, it is not Aubrey O'Day. If you recall, Aubrey had a diss track called "DTJ" "DJT" in which she excoriates a man with the initials DTJ about their doomed romance. The song never became a hit, probably because the powerful and corrupt Trump family had it suppressed.

To protect the identity of the woman in question (and because she will probably one day wake up to the mistake she has made), I have not included her name.

Whoops, it figures i would forget to add the video and would misspell the song title several times. oh, well.

Interview with ONTD BOYFRIEND RAFAEL SILVA® and 9-1-1 Lonestar LGBTQ cast

- ONTD BOYFRIEND RAFAEL SILVA®, Ronen Rubinstein and Brian Michael Smith are profiled as the lgbtq leading men from 9-1-1 Lonestar.
- Brian Michael Smith mentions that he constantly gets messages from trans people or people thinking about transitioning.
- Ronen says that ONTD BOYFRIEND RAFAEL SILVA® was pivotal in his coming out as bisexual last year.
- ONTD BOYFRIEND RAFAEL SILVA® says about representing a queer latino: “For me, it’s absolutely about the queer representation, queer love, but it’s also about the Latine existence in America. I think, as long as I approach all of that with a sense of dignity, of responsibility, I can only hope that I’m doing a good job. I’m just extremely grateful for the fans for latching on to Carlos and latching on to this beautiful couple that really demonstrates humanity. They’re not needles in a haystack. We’re not hard to find. We’re everywhere — queer people are everywhere.”


ONTD, remember 9-1-1: Lonestar with ONTD BOYFRIEND RAFAEL SILVA® premieres tonight.

Tristan Thompson confirms what we all knew already

Tristan Thompson says paternity results reveal he is the father of Maralee Nichols' son.

On Monday, the NBA player shared a message on his Instagram Story, writing: "Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols. I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son."

"I sincerely apologize to everyone I've hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately," he continued.

Thompson, 30, had previously disputed the paternity of the child, who was born on Dec. 1.

In his message on Monday, Thompson also addressed ex Khloé Kardashian — whom he was dating when Nichols said the child was conceived.

"Khloé, you don't deserve this. You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you," he wrote. "

You don't deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you. I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry."


Will Khloe give community dick a second another chance, ONTD?
