Rest in Peace: Heather Heyer Charlottesville Terror Car Attack Victim was Memorialized! ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข


Rest in Peace: Heather Heyer Charlottesville Terror Car Attack Victim was Memorialized!๐Ÿ’ฎ
The woman who died in the Charlottesville car attack has been identified as 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

via NYDN: One man pumped the Virginia native’s chest and another held an oxygen mask to her face as state police clutched their rifles during the chaotic aftermath of the attack.
The crash impact left Heyer lying on the pavement alongside another bloodied victim who was wearing a black shirt emblazoned with words of protest.
Charlottesville Police Chief Alfred Thomas Jr. told reporters the woman was killed while crossing the street. She was among 20 people struck as the driver of a Dodge Challenger barreled down a narrow street teeming with counter-protesters.

The man believed behind the wheel, 20-year-old James Fields Jr., sped the mangled sports car away in reverse. He was arrested and charged in the attack, just hours after standing alongside members of the Vanguard America hate group during the rally.
It’s unclear if Heyer was with demonstrators protesting the white supremacist rally that ended a short time earlier.
Heyer’s last public Facebook post suggested she had a reason to be downtown Saturday.
“If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention,” wrote Heyer, quoting a popular political slogan a week after the 2016 presidential election.
Police did not immediately identify Heyer as the fatal victim in Saturday’s wreck.
“She died doing what was right. My heart is broken, but I am forever proud of her,” said Heyer’s childhood friend Felicia Correa, who spoke on behalf of the victim’s mother.
Correa learned of Heyer’s death through her sister, another paralegal at the Charlottesville law firm.
“We grew up together. We lived on the same street, went to the same school, rode the bus together and played together,” Correa said.
A GoFundMe webpage set up for Heyer’s family raised more than $121,000 in a few short hours after being set up early Sunday.

“Devastated at the loss of Heather Heyer. She was murdered for standing up against hate & bigotry. Prayers to her family,” Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe tweeted on Sunday.
Another family member, Keri Vivona, declined to comment when reached by the Daily News.
“Our family is trying to process this terrible tragedy,” she said.

Today they had her Memorial Service and you can watch below courtesy of ABC News

Rest in Peace, Heather.

America,This is the Real Donald Trump!
GQ’s Jay Willis writes a stunning piece about Donald Trump. He says ‘Three days after blithely refusing to condemn white supremacists who murdered a woman by running her over with a car, and one day after issuing a halfhearted follow-up after some bewildered White House staffer told him that a key part of being President of the United States is saying that Nazis are bad, Donald Trump trotted out for a press conference this afternoon and angrily ripped this fragile, clumsy, multi-part response to shreds.’

#EMPIRE: How Will Cookie React to Lucious' Memory Loss?
The mind-melting Season 3 finale of Empire ended on a perfect soap-opera moment: Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) was nearly blown up in a car-bomb explosion, and when he woke up from a coma in the hospital, he had lost all his memories.
It left the upcoming fourth season with a wide open door to walk through, as Empire was free to do almost anything with this storyline. Is he faking it? If it's real, how will his family react? What does this mean for the company? Will he remember that his mom murdered Tariq?

We won't get all those answers until Empire returns, but first question first: Is Lucious faking his amnesia?
"Fans should not be questioning it, it's not a long con," Empire creatorLee Daniels told TV Guide. "He really has lost his memory. It's hard for me to believe that, but he really has lost his memory."

So how will Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) react to this version of Lucious, who starts over with a new slate?
"We see the angel that he could be," Henson told us, reflecting on this new Lucious who has none of the hate he had before. "[Cookie] doesn't know how to accept it, because it's foreign to her. I think it's nice, but she wants that old thing back."

Don't we all. Who wants to see a nice Lucious? Empire Season 4 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 8/9c on Fox.

#MUSICNEWS; Ledisi Introduces New Album “Let Love Rule” at NYC Press Event
Ledisi held an event last week in NYC to give a preview of the upcoming album “Let Love Rule”.
And our friends over at ‘You Know I Got Soul’ attended and gave this report.
The evening began with a Q&A session where we got to hear from Ledisi how Bob Marley influenced the vibe of this album, and how she wasn’t quite ready to record when she initially went into the studio. She talked about how producers Rex Rideout and DJ Camper pushed her in the right direction, and how excited she is to share this project with the world.

She then took the stage to perform some of the new music live. Included in the set was current single “High”, as well as her recently released song “Add to Me”.
She performed a couple of other new songs, before stepping into the audience and gleefully greeting all attendees in the room. “Let Love Rule” is set to release on September 22nd, 2017. (H/T YouknowISoul”)

#HIPHONEWS: A$AP Ferg Taps Migos, Meek Mill, & Cam’ron for ‘Still Striving’
Just days before dropping his mixtape Still Striving, A$AP Ferg unveils the effort’s star-studded tracklisting.
Previously-released tracks like “Nasty (Who Dat)” (featuring Migos) and “East Coast Remix” (featuring Busta Rhymes, A$AP Rocky, Dave East, French Montana, Rick Ross, and Snoop Dogg) appear on the 14-song set. But that’s just scratching the surface.

The project, due Friday (Aug. 18), also offers three solo tracks: “Plain Jane,” “Nandos,” and “Tango.”

Continuing with the month of AWGEST, A$AP Mob is up next with the release of Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2: Too Cozy, which is out next week. Following that, the group is heading out on the “Too Cozy Tour” with Ferg’s assistance on select dates.

Uh Oh? Usher Does Not Intend to Settle Herpes Lawsuits
Usher is facing lawsuits from four different people who say that he exposed them to herpes, but the R&B superstar does not intend on settling with any of his accusers.
TMZ cites inside sources, who say that Usher has no intention of settling these lawsuits at the moment and says that there have been no settlement talks thus far. However, that could change depending on a cost-benefit analysis down the line, one insider said.
Three women and a man are currently suing Usher, alleging that he exposed them to the herpes virus without informing him that he was carrying the sexually transmitted disease. Three of the four accusers are anonymous while one — Quantasia Sharpton — has been public with her claim.

The news comes in the wake of a report that Usher privately settled a similar lawsuit for $1.1 million back in 2012.

Usher has not officially addressed any of these allegations.

Kim Kardashian Apologizes for Defending Jeffree Star After His Racist Comments
Kim Kardashian was criticized on social media for defending makeup artist Jeffree Star after his past racist comments.

"Guys, I see you being so petty and bringing up things in [Star's] past where he was negative, but he has also apologized for those things," Kardashian, 36, said in a series of Snapchat videos on Monday, August 14. "I get [that] it's a serious deal if you say racial things, but I do believe in people changing, and people that apologize, I will give them the benefit of the doubt and accept that people change and move on."
Reflecting on her own past, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star continued, "I know better than anyone that I hate when people bring up my past or mistakes that I've made in the past. So let him live."

DUMB ASS The issue is that Jeffree hasn't just said racial things in the past, he's said them recently as well and refuses to ackonwledge that.  His recent apology video only addrssed something he said 12 years ago (disrespectful racist comments toward black women).

So Kim trying to police what a black woman (or anyone really) can and can't be mad at is entitled and ridiculous.  Because we all know her sensitive ass didn't "just get over" all the Ray J jokes and people criticizing how exactly she got to where she is.

As expected, folks started going in on her, so she had to offer up an apology. *rolls eyes *

In a now deleted Instagram video, Kim said:
“So I really wanted to apologize to you guys and my fans for defending a situation yesterday that I really didn’t know enough about. I just feel a bit naรฏve, and I do want to really apologize for me feeling like I had the right to say ‘get over it’ in a situation that involves racism.”

“I just don’t really feel like I have the right to speak on that, and I really, really, really am sorry,” she said. “From the bottom of my heart, I’ve always been about positivity and I’ve never been a negative person, so my whole thing was: ‘Hey guys, I don’t want to see negativity in my timeline or my mentions, let’s just move forward — let’s be positive and move past this.’ ”

“I really am sorry, and I just want to move forward and be positive,” she continued. “My last message is that I do believe that people are born to love and born with love, and they are taught to hate. So I have always had hopes that people can change and that people can learn to be better and do better, and learn to find that love again. So never give up hope. That is my message for the day and that’s always been what I’m trying to say. I believe in people changing, I believe in people just being better, and I’ll never give that up. I just want people to be positive

Just shut the hell up!

Octavia Spencer, LeBron James Team on TV Series About Entrepreneur Madam C.J. Walker
NBA superstar LeBron James is continuing to make moves off the court. James’ production company, SpringHill Entertainment, is adding the first scripted drama to its growing slate. The project also boasts Oscar-winning talent: Octavia Spencer.
Spencer is attached to star in the limited series about entrepreneur and social activist Madam C.J. Walker’s life, with James exec producing along with his company’s co-founder, Maverick Carter.

Sources tell Variety that Netflix is interested in the series and is the likely destination. The steaming service had no comment on their involvement in the project
Nicole Asher is on board to write and co-exec produce and “Black Nativity” helmer Kasi Lemmons will direct the pilot and also exec produce.
The series is based on the book “On Her Own Ground” by A’Lelia Bundles, Walker’s great-great-granddaughter, who will also serve as a consultant on the series.

Walker, the daughter of slaves, was orphaned at age seven, married at 14, and widowed at 20. She spent two decades laboring as a washerwoman, earning $1.50 a week. However, everything changed following Walker’s discovery of a revolutionary hair care formula for black women. By the time she died in 1919, she had built a beauty empire from the ground up, amassing wealth unprecedented among black women. She counted W.E.B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington among her friends.
Zero Gravity Management’s Mark Holder and Christine Holder optioned the book from Bundles in early 2016. Spencer got wind of the project and aggressively pursued the part. Once word spread that Spencer was attached, WME, who reps both Spencer and James, pitched the series to James as his production company’s entryway into the prestige genre.

SpringHill president Jamal Henderson brought the project to Carter’s attention and the two moved quickly to land the property.
With Nicole Asher set to write, Spencer starring, and James and Springhill on board as producers, the package was presented to potential buyers, with Netflix acting fast and the favorite to land the series.
“I am really proud of this project and that SpringHill will be partnering with Octavia to tell this important story,” James said. “Every American should all know the story of Madam C.J. Walker. She was an innovator, entrepreneur, social activist, and total game changer whose story has been left out of the history books. I hope this project lives up to her legacy with a story that will educate and inspire.”

The Holders (through Zero Gravity), James and Carter (through SpringHill), and Spencer (through her production company Orit Entertainment) will all serve as exec producers with Asher on board as a co-exec producer.

“It’s so exciting for all of us to keep building SpringHill, see it mature, and continue to find its voice. We are really focused on growing with authenticity and substance,” Carter said. “For us, this is totally about great stories and great partners. Partnering with Octavia to tell the story of Madam C.J. Walker is the ideal first project for SpringHill to take an important step into scripted drama.”
The film is in line with SpringHill’s mission to spotlight the hidden African-American figures who helped shape American history. The company recently donated $2.5 million to the Smithsonian’s Muhammad Ali exhibit at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Launched in 2013, SpringHill has quietly become a big force in the entertainment industry. Although the company, which partnered with Warner Bros. in 2015, didn’t produce any series that were picked up this pilot season, they sold three pilot pitches to broadcast networks while producing the hit Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse.” The company is also producing a comedy for HBO set in an L.A. sneaker store.
Spencer’s hit film “Hidden Figures” earned her an Oscar nomination. She followed up the role with Summit Entertainment’s “The Shack” and Fox Searchlight’s “Gifted.” The actress can be seen next in Guillermo del Toro’s Cold War fantasy “The Shape of Water,” which is already gaining award season buzz.

#BEEF Jesse Williams Wife Demands Sole Custody. Doesn’t want other women around their Kids!
Jesse Williams’ wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, is gunning for sole custody of their two children.
According to a new report, Aryn has filed new docs in their divorce case, listing why she feels she should receive custody of their son and daughter. She claims that the children are being emotionally compromised, as their father (Jesse) has exposed them to at least one intimate partner and possibly more. In fact, she’s requested the judge to order him to keep girlfriends away from the kids and only allow them to see if they’ve dated for six months.

Aryn also details an alleged road rage incident that happened last month. She says that after an argument, the neighbor flipped off Jesse. She claims that Jesse then “aggressively pursued him in his car” with their two kids inside. She says Jesse threatened to kill him. Aryn believes that the kids are showing psychological signs of damage.
Jesse, who is reportedly dating actress Minka Kelly, has yet to comment publicly. Jesse and Aryn were together for 13 years and married for 5.

DJ David Mueller Defends Himself After Losing Taylor Swift Groping Trial: ‘I Never Grabbed Her’

David Mueller defended himself in a preview for a new interview after losing his groping trial against
After the jury’s verdict, the former radio host told ABC News that there’s “no question” in his mind that he did not grab the superstar’s butt while posing for a photo at a June 2013 meet-and-greet. "What I’m saying is that I didn’t do what they say I did. I never grabbed her,” he said in the clip, which aired on Good Morning America on Tuesday, August 15. “I never had my hand under her skirt, and I can pass a polygraph.”
The Denver-based DJ explained that the meet-and-greet pic with the singer, 27, is awkward because he was moving into the frame at the last second. “I wasn’t ready,” he said. "I wasn’t invited to be in the photo, so I just moved into the shot the best I could.”

Swift, however, testified that he groped her beneath her skirt. “It was a definite grab — a very long grab. He stayed latched on to my bare ass cheek as I moved away from him,” she said. “I was visibly uncomfortable."

Meuller claimed that he wasn’t looking for money from Swift — he simply wanted a note clearing his name. "I asked for something in writing that stated there was a misunderstanding,” he said, “and I could take that to possibly convince someone at a radio station to hire me.” He said that he may appeal the jury’s decision.
As previously reported, the jury ruled in favor of the “Wildest Dreams” songstress and ordered Mueller to pay her $1. Swift’s lawyer J. Douglas Baldridge explained in his opening statements that his client was seeking a symbolic dollar “to show women you can say no.”
The Grammy winner issued a statement after the trial, thanking the judge, jury and her legal team for “fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process.” She added that she hopes to “help those whose voices should also be heard,” and plans to donate to multiple organizations to help sexual assault victims defend themselves in court.

These 2 Black were Men Assaulted By White Supremacists in Charlottesville VA!
(HuffPost) Both Deandre Harris and Marcus Martin sustained severe injuries from the rally in Charlottesville.
One woman was killed and more than a dozen people were injured as a result of Saturday’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Among those injured were two black men, both of whom were captured on camera in the moments that they were assaulted.
In one case, 20-year-old Deandre Harris was brutally beaten by a mob of white supremacists holding metal poles. Harris told HuffPost on Tuesday that he is currently recovering from the severe injuries he sustained, which include head gashes, a broken wrist and a chipped tooth. He also said that he is currently looking to hire a lawyer.
Photographer Zach D. Roberts captured the harrowing moment Harris was beaten in an image that has since gone viral:
In another instance, counter-protester Marcus Martin was hit by a driver that deliberately crashed into a crowd of protesters. The crash killed 32-year-old paralegal Heather Heyer and would have also hit Martin’s fiancรฉe had he not rushed onto the scene moments before. 
Martin sustained injuries from the attack, including a broken leg. That moment was captured in a photo that has also gone viral:
Anti-racist protesters were mowed down by a vehicle going at a high speed during a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday.

Both images exemplify the egregious acts of violence that took place on Saturday. The rally, which was led by hundreds of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and KKK members, was a direct response to the planned removal of a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. It very quickly turned into a massive gathering that plainly demonstrated how America has yet to reckon with its widespread issues of racism and white supremacy.
Harris and Martin echoed some of the same sentiments in the days since the attacks. In fact, Martin explains that it was the racism being espoused at the rally on Saturday that encouraged him to attend in the first place and express intolerance of such hatred.

“I wasn’t going to attend the rally, but then I get on Facebook, and I see videos of them just beating [people] with torches,” Martin told CNN on Tuesday. “And that’s what I stand for, I stand for my black community. I stand for everything, what’s right. And by me being able to see what was really going on, I couldn’t, I couldn’t allow myself not to go.” 
Martin said his motive in attending the demonstration was to “stand up and spread love.” He also mourned the death of Heyer and called out her alleged killer, who he said showed no remorse for his actions.
“He took it upon hisself ... to walk out the rally, to get in his car, to find out where the good protest was going, and you find us and you run us down,” Martin said. “He knew exactly what he was doing. His intentions [were] clear. He wanted pain. He wanted hurt. He wanted blood. That’s what he was after.”
Harris, who said he is spending his time on recovering and identifying his attackers, also condemned the violence he and others faced at the rally.
“I think for them to be allowed to come here and protest is really crazy,” Harris told The Root, explaining how he was beaten in a parking garage right beside a police station, but no cops came to his aid. “I understand everyone is entitled to their freedom of speech, but the government and the mayor made a bad business move. It’s only caused havoc in your own city. It’s crazier that people have the hatred in their heart to want to kill black people.”
Marcus Martin (center), who was injured when a car plowed into a crowd of people protesting against the white supremacist “Unite the Right” rally, his fiancรฉe, Marissa Blair (behind with arms around Marcus), and friends visit the memorial built at the place where he was injured and where 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed in the same attack.

David Straughn, a Black Lives Matter organizer who calls Charlottesville home, said white nationalists descended upon the city last weekend with a specific agenda: “They came to intimidate, harm and assault predominantly people of color,” he told HuffPost
Straughn said he attended an event Friday at a local church, along with speakers Dr. Cornel West and Traci Blackmon, where attendees were told to stay indoors as a group of white nationalists approached the area.
“No members were allowed to leave and we were held hostage in that church,” Straughn said. “It was like something from the ’60s. It was something I had heard about and had never thought I’d witness in my lifetime.”

“Charlottesville has put on display the ways in which white supremacy has fueled and continues to fuel a genocide against black people, both in this country and around the world.
However, Straughn said the real horror reigned on Saturday, as he witnessed firsthand the hate and violence that unfolded in the streets of Charlottesville. Straughn, who said he marched alongside hundreds of others as part of a peaceful protest demanding justice, was just steps away from Heyer before she was fatally struck by a car allegedly driven by a white nationalist.

“I was standing a foot away from Heather Heyer,” he recalled. “I watched the life pass from her eyes. It was the most horrific thing I had ever seen in my life.”
Straughn said he called medics immediately and worked with others to aid those who were injured. He said he wishes he could have done more to help save Heyer’s life ― and that he had the opportunity to meet her family at a vigil to express his love and support for the bravery she showed.
“She will not die in vain,” he told them.
Straughn noted that people of color were the most vulnerable targets at Saturday’s rally. He said he is working with local organizers to help hold attackers accountable and demand that the police chief resign over what they believe were inadequate safety measures.
“They’re coming for bodies, they’re coming to hurt predominantly people of color,” Straughn said of the white nationalists who rallied. “They came to strike terror into the heart of Charlottesville.”
 “We don’t live in a post-racial society,” he added. “We still live in a society where people are coming at our heads for looking and acting a different way. Nobody is safe.”

Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter, summed up the horror in Charlottesville and what it means for black lives in America.
 “Charlottesville confirms the violence that black people endure every day,” she told HuffPost in a statement. ”[It] has put on display the ways in which white supremacy has fueled and continues to fuel a genocide against black people, both in this country and around the world.”

‘Dear White People’ Team Reunites On Justin Simien-Directed ‘Bad Hair’
Justin Simien, who wrote and directed the lauded Sundance indie Dear White People which he turned into the Netflix series, will next write and direct Bad Hair. He will team with Sight Unseen, the newly formed production shingle of Julia Lebedev, Eddie Vaisman, and Oren Moverman. Lebedev and Angel Lopez produced Dear White People, and Lebedev is exec producer of the Netflix series spinoff.

Paralleling the rise of New Jack Swing in 1989, Bad Hair is a horror satire that follows an ambitious young woman who gets a weave in order to survive the image obsessed world of music television. Her professional success comes at a higher cost than anticipated, however, when she discovers her new hair may have a mind of its own. Simien has retained the biting satirical commentary but added genre bending thrills. Sight Unseen VP of Development, Angel Lopez, will oversee the film for the company. They’ve started a teaser website that will be developed over time as the movie takes shape
Simien sparked to a team-up “with Sight Unseen in order to create work that both entertains and holds a mirror up to society. This will be both a love letter to black women and a critique of the cultural forces our society puts them through.”

Simien, who created and exec produced the Dear White People series, is in pre-production on the ten-episode second season, which will premiere in 2018. He is repped by WME, Oasis Media Group and Del Shaw Moonves Tanaka.

The Daily Buzz For Aug 16 ☕๐Ÿ“ฐ☕


Sevyn Streeter Shines On Cover of Rolling Out Magazine
The R&B vixen saw the release of her much-anticpated debut full-length album, Girl Disrupted, last month. In her latest promotion for the album, the Florida native shines on the cover of Rolling Out magazine.
In the issue, Sevyn opens up about the healing process of songwriting and performing music. “Writing for other artists is [incredible],” Streeter says. “It’s like my favorite thing in the world to do and mainly because it’s a trusting process. People have to really trust you for them to allow you to write their story. I [cherish] the interaction and the relationships with artists that I write for. It’s just [the] bomb!”
Additionally, she gives fans further background on her early beginnings as an aspiring artist, the situation last year regarding the “We Matter” jersey she wore to perform at the Philadelphia 76ers game, dealing with depression, and more.

“I think a lot of times people think just because we’re artists that we don’t go through s—, and that could not be any further from the truth,” Sevyn said. “That just comes with being an artist. I hate to say this, but every artist has a little bipolar in them. It doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s something wrong with you. It just means that you’ve tapped into different emotions, and that’s all being an artist is.”

Mindy Kaling Says She’s ‘Really Excited’ About Becoming a Mom in First Interview About Motherhood
Mindy Kaling is ready for baby!

The actress and author confirmed she’s going to be a mom and shared that she’s “really excited” about it during a sit-down with Willie Geist for Sunday Today – the first time she’s spoken publicly about her happy news.

“It’s so unknown to me,” Kaling said in a preview for the interview. “I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I’m like, ‘Okay, it’s out of my hands,’ which is kind of a fun feeling.”
The Mindy Project star is looking to her own mother, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2012 , for inspiration on what kind of parent she wants to be. “My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did,” she explains.


5 Different Drugs Found In Tiger Woods’ System During Time Of DUI Arrest
Almost three months after being hit with a DUI in Jupiter, Florida, it’s being revealed that golf professional Tiger Woods had multiple drugs in his system at time of the arrest.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, five drugs were detected in the athlete’s urine: THC, the active ingredient in marijuana; the painkillers hydrocodone and hydromorphone, known by their brand names Vicodin and Dilaudid; the sleep drug zolpidem, sold under the brand name Ambien; and the anti-anxiety medication alprazolam (commonly known as Xanax).

Following the report, Woods released a statement that read: “I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance. I am continuing to work with my doctors, and they feel I’ve made significant progress. I remain grateful for the amazing support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me.”

Just last week, Woods’ attorney entered a plea deal might get Tiger off the hook from community service and jail time. Woods will likely accept a reckless driving plea as part of his entry into Palm Beach County’s first-time DUI offender program.“The Program is an important effort to make our community safer by ensuring that drivers prosecuted for first-time DUIs (for both alcohol and drug use) have their underlying substance abuse issues addressed. Defendants accept responsibility for their actions, our streets are safer, and taxpayers benefit from fewer trials and lower costs to our criminal justice system,” state attorney Dave Aronberg said in a statement.


SADNESS: Stuntwoman Joi Harris Dies While Filming ‘Deadpool 2’
Stuntwoman Joi “SJ” Harris was killed in a motorcycle crash on the set of ‘Deadpool 2’ in Vancouver.
In addition to her job as a stuntwoman, Joi was the first African-American female professional road racer. She was completing her first film as a stunt performer when she passed.

via Deadline: Production on the superhero sequel was shut down immediately after the fatality, and there’s no word on when filming will resume. It’s the second on-set death in North America in a month; John Bernecker suffered massive head injuries in a fall July 12 on the set of The Walking Dead and died shortly afterward.

Details still are coming in, but witnesses said the crew was filming a stunt sequence when Harris lost control of her motorcycle and crashed through a plate-glass window at Shaw Tower on West Waterfront Road near Jack Poole Plaza. The stuntwoman was playing the Domino character in the sequence in the Ryan Reynolds superhero sequel. Actress Zazie Beetz is playing Domino in Deadpool 2. Reynolds tweeted a photo of Beetz in character two weeks ago.

A source close to the situation said Harris, who was an experienced road racer, had been rehearsing the stunt all day Saturday. A studio production source said that there were “two full days of rehearsals over the weekend, and on Monday, they ran the stunt five-plus times before filming.”
An eyewitness told Deadline that, on the last take, the bike seemed to accelerate when it was supposed to slow as she took the corner. Harris was not wearing a helmet when the accident occurred today because the Domino character did not wear one in the scene.

Deadline has been told that the crew is enduring very long hours — that includes weekends — and that workers feel like they are being run ragged. “People are exhausted by the schedule,” one crew member told Deadline, noting that they were working multiple 16-hour days in a row. That, however, is disputed by a studio production source, who said the daily shooting schedule on the Vancouver set is 12-13 hours, and there were only two 15-plus-hour days, about three weeks ago.

Reynolds said he was “devastated” by Harris’ death. Producer Simon Kinberg had no comment when contacted by Deadline.
David Leitch, director of Deadpool 2 said in a statement to Deadline: “I’m deeply saddened by the loss of one of our stunt performers today. No words can express how I and the rest of the Deadpool 2 crew feel about this tragedy. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and loved ones in this difficult time.” A 20th Century Foxspokesman told Deadline: “We are deeply saddened by the accident that occurred on the set of Deadpool 2 this morning. Our hearts and prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of our crew member during this difficult time.”

According to her online bio, Harris began motorcycle riding in Brooklyn and in 2013 — after logging more than 1,500 training hours — became the first African American woman licensed to actively compete in American Motorcyclist Association races. An injury from an on-track crash while training for her first race forced Harris to wait until 2014 to begin competing in the American Sportbike Racing Association/Championship Cup Series. Since then she had been an outspoken advocate for female racing.

“I’ve learned to accept that I am not the greatest rider that exists and that there is always something to learn when on track and pushing limits,” she said on her website. “Sometimes I’m going to eat it if I’m impatient. Everything takes time. Face your fears — you never know what you can be missing out on.”

The Vancouver Police Department confirmed the death on social media this morning. Law enforcement in Reynolds’ hometown said they are investigating the incident along with the BC Coroner’s Service and WorkSafeBC, British Columbia’s version of the U.S.’ Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

RIP.


Anna Faris Thanks Fans for Support After Chris Pratt Split
Anna Faris took a moment at the beginning of her podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified, to address her split from Chris Pratt.
“Hey, dear listeners: I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you,” Anna told her listeners before the slipping into the pre-taped episode featuring the My Favorite Murder hosts Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. This was the first episode Anna released since news broke that she was separating from her husband.

Anna and Chris announced their split earlier this month. They were married for eight years and share a son named Jack, who was born in August of 2012


Evelyn Lozada will retain pricey keepsake from Carl Cawford
Despite being a single woman again, Evelyn Lozada is reportedly holding on to a keepsake from her engagement. As previously reported, the “Basketball Wives” star and her baby daddy, Major League Baseball star Carl Crawford, split in February after Lozada allegedly procured evidence that Crawford was cheating on her.
And while Crawford’s team is remaining mum on his breakup with the reality star, new details from #TeamEvelyn are leaking.

According to the folks over at TMZ, Lozada has absolutely no intentions of returning the engagement ring the baseball star gave her in 2013. Instead, the 14.5-carat ring that’s worth a whopping $1.4 million, will be kept in a safe and eventually passed down to Lozada’s children, Carl Leo and Shaniece Hairston.

“Legally, Lozada is obligated to give the ring back — since an engagement ring is considered a conditional gift in California, the condition being she has to get married. But sources close to Lozada tell us … Crawford ain’t getting it back, period.”
Evelyn will be seen on tonight’s “Basketball Wives LA” reunion defending her decision to donate to Jackie Christie’s daughter’s GoFundMe.

Meanwhile, there is a lot of speculation about Lozada’s truthfulness in convincing producers to allow her to return to “BBWLA.” Lozada made her engagement and upcoming nuptials to Crawford part of her enticing storyline. But since the couple broke up in February, Lozada should not have included that in her negotiations with producers.

Born in New York City, Lozada, 41, is of Puerto Rican ancestry. She was engaged to NBA star Antoine Walker with whom she had a 10-year relationship with from 1998 until 2008. On Nov. 16, 2010, Chad Johnson proposed to Lozada; they had been dating since earlier in the year. On July 4, 2012, she married Johnson in Saint Martin. In August of 2012, Johnson was arrested on a charge of domestic battery according to the Davie, Florida, police. On Aug. 14, 2012, Lozada filed for divorce claiming that her marriage was “irretrievably broken” and the divorce was finalized on Sept. 19, 2012. On Sept. 21, 2012, Johnson entered a plea of no contest to misdemeanor domestic battery, avoiding jail time in an agreement with prosecutors and Lozada. Johnson received a year of probation.


Charlottesville Terrorist Once Accused Of Beating Mother
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — The driver charged with killing a woman at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville was previously accused of beating his mother and threatening  her with a knife, according to police records released Monday.
Samantha Bloom, who is disabled and uses a wheelchair, repeatedly called police about her son, James Alex Fields Jr., in 2010 and 2011, telling officers he was on medication to control his temper, transcripts from 911 calls show.
Fields, 20, is accused of ramming his car into a crowd of counter-protesters on Saturday in Charlottesville, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.
Fields, described by a former high school teacher as an admirer of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany, was charged with second-degree murder.
A judge denied him bail Monday after the public defender’s office said it couldn’t represent him because a relative of someone in the office was injured in Saturday’s protest.

Fields was assigned a local attorney, and another hearing was set for Aug. 25.
Records show that Fields was arrested and put in juvenile detention after his mother reported in 2011 that he stood behind her wielding a 12-inch knife.
In another incident in 2010, she said her son smacked her in the head and locked her in the bathroom after she told him to stop playing video games. There was no indication in the records that he was arrested.
Also Monday, a former classmate told The Associated Press that on a school trip to Europe in 2015, a teenage Fields couldn’t stand the French and said he only went on the trip so that he could visit “the Fatherland” — Germany.
“He just really laid on about the French being lower than us and inferior to us,” said Keegan McGrath.
McGrath, now 18, said he challenged Fields on his beliefs, and the animosity between them grew so heated that it came to a boil at dinner on their second day. He said he went home after three or four days because he couldn’t handle being in a room with Fields.
The incident shocked McGrath because he had been in German class with Fields for two unremarkable years.

“He was just a normal dude” most of the time, though he occasionally made “dark” jokes that put his class on edge, including one “offhand joke” about the Holocaust, McGrath said.
McGrath said Fields was no outcast: “He had friends. He had people who would chat with him.”
Meanwhile, under pressure to speak out more forcefully, President Donald Trump condemned Ku Klux Klan members, neo-Nazis and white supremacists who take part in violence as “criminals and thugs” and declared that “racism is evil.”
Trump’s initial failure on Saturday to denounce the groups by name, and his blaming of the violence on “many sides,” prompted criticism from fellow Republicans as well as Democrats.
A teacher who taught Fields in high school said Sunday that Fields was fascinated with Nazism, idolized Hitler, and had been singled out in the ninth grade by officials at Randall K. Cooper High School in Union, Kentucky, for his “deeply held, radical” convictions on race.
Fields also confided that he had been diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was younger and had been prescribed an anti-psychotic medication, according to the teacher, Derek Weimer.

Fields later enlisted in the Army and reported for basic training in 2015 but was released from active duty four months later because of what military described only as “a failure to meet training standards.”
The violence in Charlottesville also was blamed for the deaths of two Virginia State Police officers in a helicopter crash.

Fields had been photographed hours before the attack with a shield bearing the emblem of Vanguard America, one of the hate groups that took part in the protest against the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The group on Sunday denied any association with Fields.
