This absolutely needs to stop.

It's with a heavy heart that we must report that yet another transgender woman was just murdered early Tuesday morning.

Kiesha Jenkins was a 22-year-old who was reportedly jumped by five or six men after exiting a car at about 2:30am yesterday in West Philadelphia.

Police are saying that the Temple University student did not know her attackers, but was beaten by the men before being shot twice in the back by one of her assailants.

Kiesha was rushed to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.

What makes this tragic story even more heartbreaking is that Kiesha's death marks at least the 21st reported murder in the transgender community this year.

Our thoughts are with Kiesha's friends and family at this difficult time.

Watch Mark Wahlberg Make A Joke About His Raunchy Comedy Ted To Pope Francis Himself!

no title

Mark Wahlberg may have been the master of ceremonies during Pope Francis' World Meeting of Families event this weekend — but he was also the master of jokes!

The Philadelphia conference was the final leg of Pope Francis' first papal visit to the U.S. and featured performances by Aretha Franklin, Andrea Bocelli, The Fray — and 14-year-old opera singer Bobby Hill!

After his performance during Sunday's event, Hill went up to the Pain & Gain star and gave him a big hug. Wahlberg then said to the crowd:

"That right there was truly the voice of an angel. But then he whispered in my ear that he loved the movie Ted, and I told him that was not appropriate for a boy of his age."

He then asked Pope Francis for forgiveness for the raunchy film — though he probably should have asked apologized for Ted 2. Ha!

See how the Pope reacted to the funny moment (below):
