no title

It's been a tough week for Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei!

The singer was first linked to all kinds of rumors about the girl group's downfall, and even though she did a lot to smooth things over recently, it evidently hasn't been enough, at least on social media.

Now, the singer has decided to take a break from Twitter, in part to escape the aggressiveness she's experienced, as she says, as a black female celebrity in the public eye.

This is just the cat's pajamas!

It only took them 35 years… but the musical Cats is officially suitable for everyone now that it no longer features racist lyrics.

Fans of the Broadway classic are probably aware that the song Growltiger's Last Stand regularly causes controversy due to characters Asparagus and Jellylorum singing with stereotypical Asian accents.

Most productions of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical already do away with the disgusting line "With a frightful burst of fireworks the Ch*nks they swarmed aboard," but the 2016 New York revival has reportedly gotten rid of the song entirely!

We bet that'll make Leona Lewis happy!!

Still, we're a little bothered it really took them 35 years to fix it…

Will U be catching Cats now that it's finally opened??

Let's see how the people try to spin this one…

It's no secret racism is alive and well in America — and we're not even talking about the Republican National Convention's intern pic!

No, we're unfortunately talking about YET ANOTHER instance of police shooting an unarmed black man for literally no reason… but this case out of Miami may finally effect some real change.

That's because while Alton Sterling and Philando Castile's deaths were caught on camera, neither were able to share their sides of the story… but luckily, the latest victim of police brutality survived.

47-year-old Charles Kinsey works as a behavior therapist to autistic and other special needs young adults in North Miami, but when a 23-year-old patient wandered away from their group home on Monday, neither probably expected to get shot.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened when cops

Gigi Hadid's boyfriend responded by saying police brutality has nothing to do with the recent shootings; it all has to do with racism.
