Lets not hail Stormy as a hero

I hope and pray she’s one of the last nails in the coffin. Make no mistake.

But the exchange in the interview where she talks about walking in the room and seeing Trump, that fat revolting fuck, sitting on the bed and all she can do is say “oh look what I’ve gotten myself into” and then has sex with him is one of the most pathetic things I’ve ever heard someone cop to.

Mississippi 9-year-old allegedly shoots teen sister to death over video game controller

A teenage Mississippi girl whose 9-year-old brother allegedly shot her over a video game has died, according to ABC Tupelo affiliate WTVA-TV.

Dijonae White, 13, died at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Tupelo Sunday evening after the boy allegedly shot her in the head during an argument Saturday over the video game’s controller, Monroe County officials told the station.

Officers responded to the scene around 1 p.m. Saturday and learned that White’s brother had allegedly grabbed a gun and shot his sister in the back of the head after she refused to hand over the controller, according to WTVA.

The children’s mother was in another room preparing lunch when the incident occurred, Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told WTVA.

WWE Drops "Fabulous Moolah Memorial" Name From WrestleMania Match After Fan Protest

https://deadspin.com/wwe-drops-fabulous-moolah-memorial-name-from-wrestleman-1823810192

In a strange twist on what was otherwise a nakedly cynical bit of brand fluffing, WWE’s decision to name a new, annual women’s battle royal at WrestleMania after The Fabulous Moolah quickly became the biggest news story in wrestling. It’s a strange twist, but not a terribly unpredictable one—given the slew of past allegations of sexual and financial exploitation against Moolah from numerous wrestling trainees, it’s hard to imagine how WWE expected this to go over. The answer, we now know, is not very well.

The wide and boisterous negative response to the naming made the front page of Reddit via the article from wrestling/MMA news site Fightful, and seemed to be picking up more steam by the day. In response, WWE announced on Thursday that it would be dropping the “Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal” name.

It all comes down Snickers, the “Presented by” sponsor for this year’s WrestleMania. On Wednesday, a thread urging fans to reach out to the candy company about the Moolah issue was one of several Moolah topics on the front page of /r/SquaredCircle, which is by far the biggest pro wrestling group on Reddit. With it becoming clear that fans were indeed writing to them, Deadspin reached out to Mars Wrigley Confectionery US, the parent company of the Snickers brand, which issued the following statement:

We were recently made aware of the World Wrestling Entertainment Inc’s (WWE) decision to honor a former wrestler during the upcoming WrestleMania 34 event. As a principle-based business that has long championed creating inclusive environments that encourage and empower everyone to reach their full potential, this is unacceptable. We are engaging with the WWE to express our disappointment.
