LAPD Shades New Orleans … You Were Robbed?!?

Breaking News

How’s the LAPD celebrating that Rams victory over the Saints? THEY’RE TALKING TRASH!!!

Right after that controversial ending in the NFC championship game, the LAPD reached out to their Nawlins counterparts on social media with some epic smack talk over that non-pass interference call that cost the Saints the game. 

“Sounds like our friends at [The New Orleans PD] might be dealing with some robbery complaints after the #LARams⁠ ⁠defeated the @Saints,” the LAPD said on Twitter. 

“We would help investigate but A) it’s outside our jurisdiction, and B) we just don’t see enough evidence of a crime.”

Translation — SUCKS TO BE YOU!! 

That’s not all … some people in New Orleans are so pissed off about the referee situation, that a local optometrist is offering free eye exams to all NFL zebras! 

“We will GLADLY provide no cost eye exams to all NFL officials prior to next season to prevent the atrocity that occurred tonight,” Louisiana Family Eyecare posted on its Facebook page.

“We would hate for someone else to feel our pain.”

Anyway … GO RAMS!!!

Gladys Knight Shades Kaepernick I’ve Done This a Lot Longer Than You

Breaking News

Gladys Knight says she not only disagrees with Colin Kaepernick using the national anthem as a protest, but she also says she’s been in the game a lot longer than him when it comes to the fight for social justice.

Gladys doubled down on her decision to sing the anthem at the upcoming Super Bowl, saying, “I have been in the forefront of this battle longer than most of those voicing their opinions to win the right to sing our country’s Anthem on a stage as large as the Super Bowl LIII.”

She goes on … “It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone.”

That said, Gladys does not doubt Colin’s intentions … “I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things, and they are police violence and injustice,” the 74-year-old legend said in a statement.

Of course, Knight is referencing Colin’s decision to take a knee during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ during NFL games. Kap had said the demonstration is intended to put a spotlight on police violence against minorities. 

Knight might agree with his message but clearly disagrees with his methods. 

“I am here today and on Sunday, Feb. 3 to give the Anthem back its voice, to stand for that historic choice of words, the way it unites us when we hear it and to free it from the same prejudices and struggles I have fought long and hard for all my life.”

“No matter who chooses to deflect with this narrative and continue to mix these two in the same message, it is not so and cannot be made so by anyone speaking it. I pray that this National Anthem will bring us all together in a way never before witnessed and we can move forward and untangle these truths which mean so much to all of us.”

Kaepernick — along with his girlfriend, close friends and celebrities — have been critical of musicians who have agreed to perform at the Super Bowl. Rap star Common has even called for Travis Scott to pull out of the halftime show. 

As for Colin’s thoughts on Gladys — so far, he has not issued a comment. 

Clemson Shades Drake After Stomping Alabama

Breaking News

The Drake Curse strikes again … and this time, Clemson ain’t letting him forget it!!

Remember, just a week before the National Championship game, the University of Alabama posted video featuring the rapper giving a motivational speech wearing a Bama sweatshirt. 

Since Drake really has no affiliation with the team, everyone labeled him as a bandwagoner … again … since Bama was widely expected to crush Clemson easily in the title game. 

But, that ain’t what happened Monday night … Clemson beat the dog snot out of the Tide in a 44 to 16 shalacking. 

After the game, Clemson went to Twitter to take a shot at Drake …

“Someone get this man a shirt with a Tiger Paw quick.”

The “Drake Curse” is getting real steam — just ask Kentucky basketball (no titles since 2012). Or, the Toronto Raptors (never been to the finals). Or, Conor McGregor (got beat up by Khabib).
