Massachusetts Colleges Cut Ties With Bill Cosby After Rape Claims

Two Massachusetts colleges have severed ties with Bill Cosby after allegations of sexual assault surfaced, casting a cloud on his legacy as a celebrated entertainer. The University of Massachusetts Amherst asked the 77-year-old comedian to step down as an honorary co-chairman of the school’s fundraising campaign, a university spokesman said Wednesday. Cosby, who received a master’s and doctorate in education from the school, agreed.

“He no longer has any affiliation with the campaign nor does he serve in any other capacity for the university,” spokesman Ed Blaguszewski said in a statement.

State Attorney General Martha Coakley had earlier urged UMass in a letter to end its relationship with Cosby “at a time when the state is focused on prevention and response to sexual assaults on campus.”

Berklee College of Music in Boston also said Wednesday it ended Cosby’s affiliation with an online scholarship named in his honor. Cosby, who plays the drums and writes music, received an honorary degree from the school in 2004.

Other schools distancing themselves from Cosby include High Point University in North Carolina, which said it has temporarily removed his name from its advisory board. In addition, Freed-Hardeman University in Tennessee said Wednesday that Cosby will no longer speak at its annual benefit dinner in December.

Several women in recent weeks have come forward to claim the comedian drugged and raped them or touched them inappropriately in past decades. Cosby has never been charged with a crime. His lawyer has called the allegations “ridiculous” and said it’s “completely illogical” that no one would have made reports to police.

Ray Rice wins appeal, suspension vacated immediately

NEW YORK (AP/PIX11) — The NFL player’s union says Ray Rice has won his appeal, and that his suspension will be vacated immediately.

The appeal was heard earlier this month by former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones.

The Baltimore Ravens player was suspended indefinitely and released by the team in September after video of him knocking his then-fiance Janay Palmer with a single punch inside a New Jersey hotel elevator was leaked.

Rice was released by the Ravens and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the suspension indefinite shortly after the video was made public.

Jeezy was presented a key to Macon-Bibb and a proclamation from Macon-Bibb County Commissioner Virgil Watkins Jr. recognizing him for his longtime service to the community.

“Today is StreetDreamz day in Macon,” Watkins said. “We wanted to honor Jenkins for all he does for the community.”

Autopsy Report Indicates Police Cover-Up of Man Who ‘Shot Himself’ While Handcuffed

“You can’t make me understand how my son took his left hand, when he was handcuffed behind the back, and shot himself. I don’t believe a thing they’re saying at this point.”

beria Parish, La.- The official autopsy report of Victor White III, 22, released this past week, casts serious doubt on officer’s claims that he committed suicide, while in handcuffs, in the back of a police vehicle.

The official police report released in March claimed White had shot himself in the back, while handcuffed, in the back of a police cruiser after being arrested for a minor drug possession charge. The report indicated that he had been searched at least two times and no weapons were found on his person.

The cops were conveniently parked in an area of the lot with no cameras and claimed that White was uncooperative and refused to exit the vehicle. The police report goes on to claim that he was left unattended while the arresting officer went to get help and upon his return he found White fatally wounded with a gunshot wound to the back.

In stark contrast to the police report, the autopsy report indicated that White died from a gunshot would to his upper torso and was not shot in the back as the official police narrative described. And while the forensic pathologist found gunshot residue in the wound, it wasn’t the sort of stippling that a close-range shot usually produces.

In addition, White’s family has gone on record that he was left handed, while the entry wound was to the right front of his chest. There were also abrasions on White’s face.

Another indication of the lack of actual investigation into this case is that White’s hands were never tested for gunpowder residue.

Chris Brown Reacts to The Real’s Adrienne Bailon and Tamar Braxton

Singer hits Instagram with scathing response to co-hosts’s comments about his relationship with Karrueche.

Chris Brown got real with Tamar Braxton and Adrienne Bailon after the talk show co-hosts addressed his girlfriend Karrueche Tran, and it wasn’t pretty. Breezy blasted The Real hosts after they insinuated on their show that Tran has stayed with Brown simply because she and her friends love fame.

Posting to his Instagram account, Brown ranted, “‘ADRIENNE BAILON…. You ole trout mouth ass b****. U tried it. Won’t u the same b**** that was f***** wit married men? U also was keeping up with the Kardashians! U can’t talk about relationship goals when u don’t even have life goals. Ain’t you a cheetah girl? Last time u was important n***** was riding spinners and wearing 6x talk Ts. You the same b**** having threesomes like the rest of these hoes.”

He then went in on Braxton. “U tried it too Tamara Braxton [sic]. U take the role of the ugly sister. It’s always the people wit no career that talk all the s***. Dat plastic surgery f***** yo face up. B**** look like she always saying ‘huh’? Muppet face ass!”

Breezy, who recently completed a court-ordered anger management course, also posted a video blasting the hosts and declaring that he “doesn’t have a chill button.”
