This is really powerful.

Unable to stay silent any longer in the face of multiple instances of unnecessary deaths of black men at the hands of police officers, as well as the horrific, targeted killings of officers in response, NBA superstar Michael Jordan has brought his voice to the conversation, and it is sobering.

Drunk Police Officer Pulls His Gun On Jack In The Box Drive-Thru Employee — And The Whole Thing Was Caught On Video!

If you don't think the U.S. has a police problem, you don't know Jack.

Police around the country are supposedly being held accountable for their actions like never before after the recent uptick in officer-involved shootings, but this story stands out for all the wrong reasons.

That's because newly surfaced video of a drunk Sheriff's Deputy in Santa Clara, California being arrested for pulling his gun on a fast food worker is going viral!

Apparently, off-duty officer Benjamin Lee was arrested back in January after he threatened a Jack in the Box drive-thru employee with his weapon for not making his food fast enough, but video of the incident only just made its way online over the weekend.

As seen in the viral vid, Benny was booked for suspicion of DUI and for brandishing a weapon after the restaurant called 911 — however, we're hearing his only real punishment was some paid administrative leave.

While we're glad no one was injured in the standoff, Ben sure is lucky he was just a guilty cop and not, say, an innocent black man

Ch-ch-check out video of the drunken incident and subsequent arrest (below)!!!

Usher, Cyndi Lauper, Josh Groban, & More Sing 'Stop Using Our Songs' To Republicans On Last Week Tonight With John Oliver! Watch!

no title

This is too perfect!

Donald Trump has had a wacky habit of using any ol' song he wants on the campaign trail this year, all without permission. And musicians are getting really tired of it!

Thankfully, a few of them partnered up with John Oliver on Last Week Tonight to FINALLY do something about it!

On Sunday night's episode on HBO, Oliver opened up the segment explaining how politicians have pretty much co-opted pop and rock music on the campaign trail, before giving way to an amazing group of artists singing a NEW song about the problem!

Led by Usher, the funny music video included riffs from Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Cyndi Lauper, Josh Groban, and Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons — and it delivered a VERY clear message to politicians: stop using our songs!!!

More controversy for comedian Katt Williams.

The entertainer has apparently been detained by the police after allegedly attacking a restaurant employee on Sunday morning in Sherman Oaks, an area of Los Angeles.

According to reports in TMZ, the police are speaking to Williams now after the incident — which took place hours ago at the Sportsmen's Lodge restaurant in Sherman Oaks — was called in to the LAPD by the restaurant staff.

Nobody yet knows what started the fight, or what specifically happened, but police apparently did see visible injuries on the woman, and she is allegedly adamant about arresting Katt on battery charges.

We'll have more news as this develops, but in the meantime, wow. It just keeps going.

This is probably a good idea.

Even though a parole board recommendation came down to let Manson Family member Leslie Van Houten free after decades in prison, California Governor Jerry Brown has flatly denied the request, citing her unbelievable cruelty so many years ago.

Beyoncé Denies Stealing Filmmaker's Idea For Lemonade!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersBeyonce

no title

Proof is in the pudding lemonade!

As we reported in June, indie filmmaker Matthew Fulks filed a lawsuit against Beyoncé, claiming she totally ripped off his 2014 short film Palinoia to make her popular visual album Lemonade.

Related: Beyoncé Stands Up For Black Lives Matter

In his lawsuit, Fulks says several visual elements from Lemonade were stolen from his film, including images of "graffiti and persons with heads down," "red persons with eyes obscured," "parking garage," "black and white eyes," "the grass scene," and "side-lit ominous figures."

Well Queen B is calling BS!

According to legal docs, the Crazy In Love singer says both projects have completely different narratives.

While Lemonade tells the story of "an African-American woman who progresses through stages of suspicion, denial, anger and, ultimately, reconciliation in her relationship," Palinoia is about a "white man who is distressed in the wake of a failed relationship."

Lemonade is sweet, but it could also be VERY sour!
