Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Bringing Hamilton To Your TV Screens To Teach You A Drunk History Lesson!

| Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesAlcoholEducationalLin-Manuel Miranda

Four pours and seven beers ago.

If you would have told us that a story about one of our Founding Fathers getting shot to death would translate into the most popular Broadway musical in ages… we never would have believed you.

But luckily, Lin-Manuel Miranda trusted his instincts and blessed us with Hamilton: An American Musical – and now he's about to do it all again for the small screen!

That's right — Comedy Central announced on Friday that Lin will be helming an upcoming episode of Drunk History this season… and while no one else has been cast just yet, it'd be a national tragedy for them to not use Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsbery, and Leslie Odom, Jr. to some extent!

Interestingly enough, DH's first-ever televised episode featured Michael Cera as Alexander Hamilton, Jake Johnson as Aaron Burr, and Ashley Johnson as Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, so Lin's going to have his work cut out for him in order to teach us something new.

Although… he's already won a Grammy, a Peabody, and 11 Tonys for his first retelling of the deadly duel — so if anyone's up for the challenge, it's him!

Will U be watching Lin-Manuel Miranda's Drunk History debut when Season Four premieres Tuesday, September 27 on Comedy Central??

| Filed under: YouTubeTeensViolenceEducationalControversy

Racial tensions seem to be at an all time high in America, with non stop racially-biased acts of violence causing major civil unrest.

As hashtags like #BlackLivesMatter and #BlueLivesMatter permeate the internet, the divide between the black community and the police continues to grow.

But sometimes, the most powerful messages come from someone unexpected — in this case, a white middle school student from Atlanta, Georgia, whose slam poetry performance titled White Boy Privilege is taking the internet by storm!

Royce Mann performed his slam poem back in May after learning about white privilege in school. Two weeks ago, the video was shared on YouTube, and has recently become widely celebrated as the appropriate self-analysis by a white American in 2016.

In his poem, the 14-year-old admits that while he "loves" his privilege, it wasn't created by this generation — so, he invites other young white males to reject their privilege and share it with the rest of society.

Ch-ch-check out his moving slam poetry performance (below)!

Wendy Williams Invites Critic To Educate Her On Racism LIVE ON TV After Losing Major Sponsor For Anti-NAACP Remarks!

| Filed under: TV NewsWendy WilliamsBET AwardsEducationalControversy

Wendy Williams needs an education… and that's exactly what she's gonna give herself!

The daytime talk show host got into some major heat last week after saying some pretty ignorant remarks about Historically Black Colleges and the NAACP.

ICYMI, the Wendy Williams Show host spoke out on Jesse Williams' powerful BET Awards speech and essentially discredited the existence of HBCUs and the NAACP.

These flippant remarks rubbed most of Wendy's viewers the wrong way, with critics calling her uneducated — and even dubbing her the new Stacey Dash! That's gotta hurt!

Wendy's advertisers weren't fans of the contrarian grandstanding either, as she also reportedly lost her Chevrolet sponsorship over the controversial comments.

But it looks like Wendy is learning from her mistake, and is planning on educating herself with the help of one of her most vocal critics.

According to Love B. Scott, Williams is inviting
