Kanye West joins stadium “prayer rally” with some of America’s most anti-LGBTQ activists
Rapper Kanye West announced he will appear at Awaken2020, a stadium-sized prayer rally hosted by some of the nation’s most anti-LGBTQ religious conservatives. After West’s announcement so many people rushed online to get free tickets to the event, the group’s website crashed.

One of the songs is an ode to Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain most frequently identified with religious controversy over LGBTQ rights.

Mother Files $5.5 Million Lawsuit After Son Is Bullied Over 50 Cent Friendship
The mother of a Brooklyn teen is blaming 50 Cent for the merciless bullying of her son, and is now suing the Department of Education for $5.5 million.
Myasia Dickerson believes her 14-year-old son Davian Fraser’s friendship with 50 Cent has made him a target, the New York Daily News reports. Now, Dickerson has filed a claim against the city, accusing Williamsburg Charter School of not protecting her son after he was regularly attacked by fellow students.
After the students learned about Fraser’s relationship with the rapper at the beginning of the school year, some of them started to harass him. “It caused a big uproar in the school,” Dickerson told the outlet. “The kids started to follow my son around, tried to put him on Snapchat, tried to take videos of him. They were following him to the train station.”
During Fraser’s lunch break on Dec. 16, four classmates came up to him near a stairwell and started punching him. “He was attacked from behind as he tried to walk away," Dickerson said. “He was punched in the head and then the student proceeded to fight him and then he slammed my son’s head onto the ground.”
Stephen King slammed for 'ignorant' tweet about not considering 'diversity' when voting for the Oscars
Famed writer Stephen King has stirred up controversy after admitting he “would never consider diversity in matters of art,” a remark made in reference to his status as a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) voting on Oscar contenders. His remarks come a day after the 2020 Oscar nominations were announced, prompting complaints that women and people of color were largely overlooked. Many critics bemoaned the exclusion of women like Greta Gerwig from the Best Director category, while Harriet’s Cynthia Erivo spoke out about being the only person of color to be nominated across four acting categories.
We are bullying someone because they are putting the quality of work before race, sex or creed. Isn't that how equality works? You can't expect to be rewarded because you are diverse. Diversity in film is at an infancy and it takes experience and hard work to establish quality. Haven't we already doled out enough pittance awards? Just have fun proving them wrong. 14-Jan-2020

ABC told ‘Batman’ actor Burt Ward to take pills to shrink penis
For baby boomers and classic TV fans, the name Burt Ward is instantly recognizable as the loyal and extremely excitable Robin on the campy “Batman” series which ran on ABC from 1966-1968. Just this week he happily unveiled a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame which he called an “amazing experience.”
The Caped Crusaders costumes were bright and tight-fitting to say the least, so snug that Ward incurred the wrath of the Catholic League of Decency.

Zachary Levi Wasn't Sure If He Wanted to Live Anymore, Battled Feelings of Failure Before Shazam! Role Changed His Life
Zachary Levi may have had a super hero save his life. The actor previously best known for NBC's Chuck was cast as Shazam! in the DC Comics big screen universe and now admits that the casting helped him find a new will to live. After struggling to find work while chasing his dream of being an actor, Levi began to doubt himself and look down at his failures along the way. When he seemed to be reaching rock bottom, he turned down an opportunity to try out for the Shazam! role out of fear of failing, however, a little bit of self help through therapy and other avenues convinced him to give it a shot -- and his life is changed forever for it.
"This last year has been fascinating. The last few, actually," Levi said on Instagram. "Two years ago today I was moving to Toronto, for the 4th time 3 years, to begin working on [Shazam!], one of the single greatest gifts I’ve ever been handed. Ironically, just 4 months prior, I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to live anymore. My goals, and visions, and hopes, and dreams, and therefore expectations for myself, have always been a lot."

DOJ report ranks Ohio 'high' for sexual victimization in juvenile detention facilities, despite overall decline
Ohio is the only state ranked "high" for its rate of sexual victimization in juvenile correctional facilities, according to a Department of Justice report released this week that evaluated data from 2018.
However, the report highlighted the difficulty of obtaining sufficient facility data — only about a third of the 327 facilities surveyed in the study had enough youth interviews to be ranked in the report. The report defined sexual victimization as any forced or coerced sexual acts between young people held in juvenile correctional facilities, or any sexual contact between them and facility staff.
More than 15 percent — or about one in six — of the 140 surveyed youth held in Ohio juvenile correctional facilities reported being forced or coerced into sexual activity with other youths or detention staff in 2018, compared to 7.1 percent nationally.
