Brits Not Happy With Good Morning America Host

(London-AP) – Many Brits are demanding that a Good Morning America host apologize for mocking Prince George because he’s taking ballet lessons. Lara Spencer laughed as she spoke about how the prince will be studying ballet at school this year.

Her co-hosts could be heard giggling as she spoke. The 50-year-old Spencer once dressed up as Prince George for a Halloween show.

The third in line for the British throne is returning to Saint Thomas’s Battersea school next month where the curriculum includes a weekly ballet practice.

Jussie Smollett Charged With Filing False Report

(Chicago, IL) – The attack on Jussie Smollett has finally come full circle and not in a good way as he is now being charged with filing a false report that registers as a class 4 felony.

It was a freezing cold late January night in Chicago, when Jussie Smollett said that he went to a local store close to his apartment to get something to eat at around 2 in the morning.   What happened next was honestly random, but in this world that we live in now, no-one is surprised by anything that happens.

Jussie, sitting on top rated show Good Morning America, shedded tears as he told Robin Roberts about an attack he suffered in which two masked men hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, beat him, threw some type of chemical liquid on him, and looped a rope around his neck in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood while yelling this is MAGA country.

Jussie, defiantly told Robin, “He punched me in the face and I punched his ass back.”  Encouraging other members of the LGBTQ community to not be afraid when confronted with adversity.  It was a good story.  One of bravery in the face of racism and hatred towards gays and black people in a tense political time for the United States.

But there were still a lot of holes …questions? Who in their right mind was out in Chicago going to get something to eat in the middle of a storm that hit Chicago with below freezing temperatures. Who??…..again who….has that much hatred for someone that they stand outside of his apartment in freezing cold temperatures hoping that their target will surface on the outside.  Armed with bleach and rope, would he come out or nah? And how was it that Jussie could say for certain that the men captured on surveillance video were in fact the men who attacked him? How was he so sure? Oh…because he was there.

One thing that was odd to me, Jussie said, as he was having this candid discourse with Robin, if I tell the truth……stop right there.  IF you are telling the truth, whether they believe you or not should never enter your mind.  Forget his reluctance to give up his phone records, we can all understand his reasoning behind that.  But at the point in which the portion you do give… produces nothing…red flags. How hard is it to show that your manager, friend or whoever was on the phone with you at a certain time of the night/day.  A screenshot would suffice.

By the time authorities identified the two people of interest on the surveillance video who turned out to be minorities and not white.  The …”This is MAGA country” verbiage became questionable.  But at the point in which they flat out told authorities Smollett planned the whole thing….all consideration stopped.

Now, to be fair, before they cooperated, the brothers told the cops they were friends of Jussie’s and were shocked to hear about what happened to him. LIES?  When they realized their falsities weren’t working they seemingly spilled all the details.  From how Jussie had sent hate mail to himself and was upset that it didn’t get a lot of attention. They  went on to detail the course of events for the night of the attack and at the end of the gab fest it was concluded that Jussie had possibly orchestrated the whole attack.

After word spread that he allegedly set the whole thing up, video surfaced of the two brothers purchasing ski masks, gloves and a red hat in a store the day before the attack. and police wanted another word with the Empire star. Are they telling the truth? Did Jussie really stage a class 4 felony attack for attention? Time will tell……

In the meantime, he’s officially being charged with filing a false report and is due in court tomorrow at 1:30pm.

Gas Station Clerk Saves Woman From Kidnapping

Pritchett snuck the victim a cell phone and locked her in the store’s bathroom until police appeared. Police arrested two men in the store and later detained two accomplices.
