The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture is coming under attack this week after it revealed its plan to exhibit several objects related to controversial comedian Bill Cosby when it opens in September.
The museum, which will feature 11 different exhibits and nearly 3,000 total items and artifacts, was quick to point out that only two of the items were related to Cosby — but that hasn't stemmed the tide of controversy!
Particia Leary Steuer, one of the women accusing Cosby of sexual assault, noted that just exhibiting the comedian's contributions to TV and entertainment would leave out a big, important, and ultimately shameful part of his legacy:
"If they just speak about the contributions, there will be this enormous presence that is not talked about."
What do U think about this — should the museum display history including Cosby, no matter how complex?! Should they acknowledge the allegations if they are going to display his contributions??
According to reports out Sunday morning, Angelina Jolie's political ambitions with the United Nations may have caused a rift between her and Brad Pitt, at least based on a source "close to the couple."
TMZ is reporting that Jolie's dream had been to become a top official with the UN -- which makes sense, considering all the charity work and traveling to developing nations that she does -- but that didn't fly at home with Brad.
