The Baton Rouge Police Department in Louisiana is currently facing public backlash after video surfaced of their officers shooting a black father-of-five named Alton Sterling.
According to the BRPD, Police responded to a call on Tuesday, not long after midnight, and were told that a black man wearing a red shirt was selling CDs and had threatened the caller with a gun. Unfortunately, the scene turned fatal when the uniformed cops made contact with Sterling at the Triple S Food Mart.
On Friday, it was announced that the people of the United Kingdom decided to "Brexit" (AKA a British exit) from the European Union. As a result of this vote, Prime Minister David Cameron resigned and the British pound dropped to its lowest value since 1985. Oh man.
This historic news obviously sparked reactions from politicians and celebrities from around the globe. While most A-listers seem upset and shocked by the vote, the one person who is happy by the Brexit is… Donald Trump. Of course.
It was only two months ago Lily Allen opened up about being victim shamed after her scary experience with her stalker of seven years, Alex Gray.
Well nearly two weeks ago, a judge ordered her stalker be sectioned with an indeterminate hospital order and restraining order after he broke into her home last October. Since the June 10 court hearing, more docs have come out from the case, reportedly revealing the songstress was in bed with another man.
Earlier this week, Lily Allen opened up to the BBC about her harrowing experience with her stalker Alex Gray, who has been harassing the Smile singer for seven years. Oh man!
As you may know, Miz Allen first started receiving abusive letters and suicide notes back in 2009. Unfortunately, the same man broke into her apartment just last year after the A-lister forgot to lock her door. So scary!
To make matters worse, Lily feels that the police failed her in regards to this upsetting case. Apparently, the 30 year old sent several of the notes to law enforcement officers thinking they'd be used against Gray, who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia — but she soon discovered that they had been destroyed due to "police protocol".
Also, the man was only first arrested after he stole her handbag. While Alex has been charged with harassment and burglary, he is NOT facing stalking charges. The LDN artist even added the police didn't seem interested in "making a stalking case".
Lily felt particularly victim shamed after talking about her experience when an officer clapped back in a letter:
Lily Allen recently spoke out against the lack of diversity at the BRIT Awards saying grime artists Stormzy and Skepta were overlooked for because "industry figures don't necessarily care about music, they mostly care about themselves."
The English singer went on to say:
"It is the awards ceremony Alan Partridge would approve of."
Partridge is a character played by comedian Steve Coogan and is a parody of British television personalities and the character enjoys music such as Wings and Abba.
