no title

Not a great look for Netflix here, but shout-out to their CEO Reed Hastings for very quickly getting rid of top communications executive Jonathan Friedland after allegations and stories first surfaced!

In "a lengthy internal memo" sent to Netflix employees on Friday afternoon, Hastings explained in detail the reasoning behind letting Friedland go, citing multiple uses of the n-word with "unacceptably low racial awareness and sensitivity."

And Friedland doesn't appear to believe he did much wrong.

After ABC canceled Roseanne late last month due to star Roseanne Barr's undeniably racist comments about a former advisor to President Barack Obama, most fans of the re-booted show figured that was pretty much it for ever seeing it on TV again.

But not so fast! ABC hinted soon after the cancellation, and they are still exploring avenues now, that might allow them to re-boot the show around Sara Gilbert's character while cutting Barr out of it altogether!

Rebecca Ferguson Releases Shocking 'Statement Of Truth' Alleging Racism & Bullying In The Music Industry!

Rebecca Ferguson

Rebecca Ferguson is opening up about shocking allegations of how she's been treated in the music industry.

In a "statement of truth" posted to social media, the 31-year-old songstress — who you may remember as the X-Factor runner-up back in 2010 — wrote an emotional message detailing years of "abuse, bullying and the total misuse of power."

She wrote of her reasoning for speaking out about the "systematic bullying":

"I have written this statement today unable to stay silent anymore however still fearful and also at a great risk to my future career in music but choosing to exercise my human right of freedom of speech and human expression, this is something I cannot continue to run away from I refuse to operate in fear. I'm still living this, and I know there are many others too! I have not spoken completely on all of the abuses I have suffered yet."

The allegations from her lengthy letter allege that she was "forced to sign a contract" and after she refused, she was told "if you do not sign it you will not have a career."

Um, what?? Did she just see a black woman and immediately think, 'I need an adult'??

When Siyonbola woke to find the philosophy student (because life just has to keep winking at us in 2018) on the phone with the cops, she posted the incident live on her Facebook for both evidence and safety.

Even after finding out this was a fellow student (if she didn't know before), Braasch tells her in no uncertain terms:
