A Starbucks barista received nearly $80,000 in tips after being singled out for refusing to serve a customer not wearing a mask
A Starbucks barista who was publicly shamed by a customer after asking her to wear a face mask has received nearly $80,000 in virtual tips after a Facebook post that criticized him went viral.
Lenin Gutierrez, 24, was working his usual shift at a San Diego Starbucks on a Monday morning when a woman -- who was not wearing a mask -- walked in and attempted to place an order, he told CNN.
Gutierrez asked her if she had a face mask -- but before he was even able to show her company guidelines requiring customers to wear one, the woman flipped him off and "started cursing up a storm," he said.
White couple blocks Mexican American from entering his building, called him 'criminal'
A white couple blocked a young Mexican American man from entering the San Francisco apartment complex where he lives in, saying "they would not let a criminal into their complex as they needed to protect it."
Michael Barajas, a UC-Berkeley graduate and a community educator for a biopharmaceutical company, tried to park his car in the apartment complex's garage Tuesday night when the driver in front of him refused to pull forward.
Barajas, 28, told NBC's Bay Area affiliate KNTV that the situation kept escalating and turned dramatic when the white man in the car got aggressive, which prompted him to start recording.

Catholic bishops are calling for the US federal government to crack down on porn, claiming it causes “pain” and “ongoing harm”.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops sent a letter US attorney general William Barr on April 30, calling on the Trump administration to “confront the ongoing harms wrought by the pornography industry”, especially as use of porn sites has spiked during the coronavirus pandemic.
In the letter, the bishops wrote: “The current pandemic is exacting a heavy and widespread emotional, social, and financial toll in our communities.
“In the face of the pandemic, the Church expresses her solidarity with all who are struggling or alone.”

Human Rights Campaign lays off staff after fundraising drops due to coronavirus pandemic
The LGBTQ advocacy organization Human Rights Campaign (HRC) just laid off over 20 employees as they face a drastic drop in fundraising because of coronavirus lockdowns and the ensuing economic collapse. The group currently employs approximately 200 people and says they do not expect further cuts.

The Washington Blade reports that HRC will turn three full-time positions into part-time and will not fill two dozen positions currently open. The group will also pause its fellowship program.

Caitlyn Jenner busted taking thousands of dollars to fundraise for a fake charity
Caitlyn Jenner was caught taking tens of thousands of dollars to promote a fake charity in a sting operation by a British news organization.
The current events program Dispatches released a documentary called Celebs for Sale: The Great Charity Scandal, in which the news team set up a fake charity to catch celebrities taking money in exchange for promoting it.
Jenner, who is transgender, was paid £19,500 (about $25,000) to publicly support the fake organization, CUPPA, or Cleaning up Plastic Pollution in Africa. According to itv News, Dispatch investigators created a fake website and merchandise for CUPPA but did not ask for donations or register it as a charity.
Cops And Corporations Don’t Care About Queer People, So Why Do They Pretend To?
If you’re LGBTIQ, chances are someone has hurled a slur at you at some point. It’s a regular occurrence for some of us and often involves violence, so these incidents can be super confronting.
Last week, ANZ released an ad to coincide with Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras where people stare into the camera and say gay slurs for around a minute. They also produced a browser extension which replaces gay slurs with rainbow emojis (yes, really).
In a surprise twist, many queer people thought this was a bad move.
When the world is so homophobic and transphobic, it seems backwards to criticise an institution which throws a bone our way.
But how much does rainbow capitalism ACTUALLY help queer people? The budget for the ad could have gone to an LGBTI legal service or a mental health service or a housing project. It could have gone towards a community-controlled advocacy or health organisation or funded research into hate speech.
If corporations truly care about homophobia, then why not take a stand against the government’s Religious Discrimination Bill? The new law will legalise discrimination against LGBTIQ people across employment, education, healthcare and day to day life.
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.
Oxfam boss accused of covering up a sex scandal in a previous job 'knew the man who quit since they were students together at Oxford', leaked document reveals
The Oxfam boss accused of covering up a sex scandal at a charity he previously led had known the senior figure who quit over the affair since his ‘student days’ at Oxford, according to a letter leaked to The Mail on Sunday.
Danny Sriskandarajah was director of the Royal Commonwealth Society when the man was allowed to ‘quietly resign’ after being confronted with a secret dossier detailing his encounters with sex workers.
According to a whistleblower, Dr Sriskandarajah helped brush the resignation ‘under the carpet’, raising possible questions about his suitability to lead Oxfam.

Straight Oklahoma Ally Creates Anti-Bigot Pride Truck, Ends Homophobia
A straight man in Oklahoma became a viral queer ally after decorating his truck in honor of Pride month. Cody Barlow used colored duct tape to create a rainbow flag on the back of his truck, writing on Facebook that he’d “found a way to show my support for pride month” with the flag and using mailbox letters to write a message: “Not all country boys are bigots. Happy Pride month.”
“This is important to me, not only because I have family and friends that are LGBTQ+, but also because countless people have dealt with hatred and judgement simply for who they are, and/or who they love, for far too long,” wrote Barlow. “Obviously doing this isn’t going to change the minds of those who are intolerant, but hopefully it can help drown out the hatred with love.”
