This can't be true!
You may be able to get the freshest products at Whole Foods, and while we enjoy the store's quality of groceries very much… we NEVER in a million years would've thought that they would display a chicken ad featuring a man that looks like Barack Obama.
Welp, it unfortunately did happen, and when a customer took notice of the ad at a Whole Foods on the Upper West Side in New York City, the advertisement was quickly removed.
However, the dramz didn't stop there. The resident was sooo offended that he even contacted NBC New York, and now, the story behind the Barack-a-doodle-doo ad is being broadcasted.
For more deets, peep the video (above)!!

To Twitter, or not to Twitter??
That is the question that seems to be on Alec Baldwin's mind at least!
The 30 Rock actor hinted that he may be leaving the Twittersphere, but why would ANYONE want to do that???!
In a suspenseful series of fifteen tweets, Alec tweeted:

Looks like he was telling the truth!
After a crazy day of dramz involving Alec Baldwin and a New York Post reporter and her photographer, things might finally start to settle down.
The audio tape that was supposed to prove Alec had said a whole lot of hateful and threatening things isn’t doing that at all.
In fact, the tape has NO mention of any racial slurs coming from Alec’s mouth.
We have to admit we're happy to hear that!
Along with that, Alec is caught saying

And the dramz just got crazier!
After being accused of throwing a racial slur and threats at a New York reporter and photographer, Alec Baldwin is under fire in more ways than one.
Not only is Alec under investigation for the incident as a harassment claim has been filed, New York State Senator Malcolm Smith is going after the actor as well.
Oooh, doesn't he know Alec doesn't like to be messed with?!
Clearly he's not afraid because he is going after the actor in a BIG way as he’s asking for Alec to be blacklisted from Hollywood until he gets help. Malcolm commented:

Guess which former Saturday Night Live star is coming to the defense of the white, Christian, conservative man?
We'll give you a hint- it ain't Chris Rock!
In a recent blogpost, right winger Victoria Jackson complains about all the racism white people have to endure. You heard us.

First, we want you to take a look at the new Coke ad for the Super Bowl (above). When you're done, we want to you think about what you saw.
Would you call it racist??
Apparently a lot of people think so! As you saw, the ad features an Arab walking through the desert with a camel and confronting cowboys, showgirls and other characters.

Well, THIS whole mess just got A LOT more interesting!
We reported a few days back that nine former American Idol contestants have filed a lawsuit together against the reality competition, alleging that they were publicly disqualified from their respective seasons based on their African-American heritage!
But while nobody from Fox or any of the producers of Idol have responded to the claims, it seems as though they won't need to…because various finalists are already speaking up in defense of the show, two of whom are BLACK themselves!
Here are some HIGHlights:
