JJ Watts Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Surpasses $10M

JJ Watts is already known as a giving guy, dedicating his time to wounded warriors and worthy causes- when Hurricane Harvey hit his home state, Watts upped it once more with a massive goal of raising $200K for relief efforts.

That goal has now exceeded $10M.

On social Watts has continued throughout the week to donate to the worthy cause, giving video updates on how much money has been raised- on Monday he bumped the goal to $1M which was quickly met, then on Tuesday evening he bumped the goal to $5 million.

Ellen Degeneres showed just how generous she was, last night donating $1M to the cause- combined with the $50K Ellen had already donated and Miley Cryrus’ $500K donation, the current donation stands just below $12M donated.

JJ Watts has served as an inspiration, with multiple NFL Teams including the Tennessee Titans, New York Jets, and of course the Houston Texans making donations in excess of $1M to Watt’s Houston relief fund. With any luck, the fund will soon exceed $20M for those whom have suffered on of the worst natural disasters this nation has seen.

Kyrie Irving Is Out of Cleveland, In At Boston; “I’m Truly Grateful”

Kyrie Irving has played his last game for the Cav’s.

“It’s all love and a whole lot of pride.”

Giving up on Cleveland wasn’t easy, but the Cav’s finally agreed to the trade after Boston gave up 2020 second round pick, Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets’ 2018 unprotected first round pick.

Irving has nothing but love for the Cavaliers and the solid fanbase, saying he was truly grateful for the opportunity & proud of the accomplishments he and his teammates succeeded in over 6 years.

Per the USA Today;

“It’s hard to make videos like this because you understand the magnitude of decisions that you make in your life can affect a lot of people all at once,” he said. “And when you get to that point and you understand that the best intentions for you and to be in your truth and find out what you really want to do in your life and how you accomplish it.

“That moment comes and you take full advantage of it and there are no other ulterior reasons other than being happy and wanting to be somewhere where you feel like it’s an environment that’s conducive for you maximizing your potential as a human being.”

“I spent part of my life and my years in the NBA in such a great environment in Cleveland,” he said. “… I still can’t believe just the feats that we reached in a 6-year span and I’m truly grateful and I’m thankful.”

Kyrie also took to Instagram to voice his love of the Cavaliers- Kyrie Irving will return to Cleveland for the first game of the 2017 NBA season on Tuesday, Oct 17th.

“My love extends way beyond the court I have for Cleveland and it will always be a place thats special because of the great people and experiences. The Ups and downs, we stand and fight no matter what the circumstances are, and that’s what being in Cleveland embodies, it is all Love and a whole lotta pride.”

Straight Outta Compton Eazy-E Actor Has Meltdown On Plane

Straight Outta Comptom actor Jason Mitchell had a meltdown on a recent Delta flight, just a week after his co-star Richard Taylor was arrested for an alleged felony assault. Mitchell had a serious issue with a first class passenger who attempted to eavesdrop on his phone call before the flight took off.

Mitchell was sitting in economy  despite paying for a first class seat after missing an earlier flight, however he began to threaten the other passenger, shouting slurs and f-bombs, refusing to cooperate with cabin crew.

I mean one can understand the frustration from missing a flight, getting bumped to economy and having someone trying to eavesdrop, but the deal is that you’ve still got to act human. If you want that respect, you’ve gotta give it as well.

“Am I talking to you?” Mitchell said in a video secured by TMZ. “F*cking racist … shut the f*ck up, how ’bout that? I paid for a first-class seat and I don’t want to sit here … I’ll bat the f*ck out you unless you sitting next to children or anything else.”

A flight attendant attempted to calm him down, which he promptly ignored- “F*ck these people” before going off again.

“You say something else to me, I’m going to smack the f*ck out you,” he said. “Look that way. What did I just say? Look that way. Look that way. You don’t know what the f*ck I’m going through, why you in my conversation, p*ssy?”

The scene wasn’t pretty- police soon arrived and took care of the situation. While Mitchell claimed that he had sh*t to do tomorrow, it might’ve been good to remember, everyone else did as well. Keep it cool.

Logic Drops A Hot Speech And Some Hot Beats At The MTV Music Awards

Last night at the MTV Video Music Awards Logic was one of the standout performances, dropping his “1-800-273-8255” alongside Khalid and Alessia Cara. What was as powerful as his single, was perhaps his message.

Onstage with him were 50 suicide attempt and loss survivors, all wearing shirts that said “You are not Alone.” Suicide and depression threatens a wide range of the populous- only last week Khalid, Alessia Cara and Logic released the music video that featured Don Cheadle, Matthew Modine, Nathan Gould, Coy Stewart, Luis Guizman, Mickaëlle X. Bizet and Bonnie Burroughs to a tune of 10M views.

After Logic finished spitting bars, he gave an extremely heartfelt speech- the following is courtesy of Buzzfeed News;

“I just want to take a moment to thank you for giving me a platform to talk about something that mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about: mental health, anxiety, suicide, depression and so much more that I talk about on this album,” he said. “From racism, discrimination, sexism, domestic violence, sexual assault, and so much more; I don’t give a damn if you are black, white, or any color in between. I don’t care if you’re Christian, you’re Muslim, you’re gay, you’re straight, I am here to fight for your equality because I believe that we are all born equal, but we are not treated equally and that is why we must fight. We must fight for the equality of every man, woman, and child regardless of race, religion, color, creed, and sexual orientation. So I say here and now if you believe in this message of peace, love, positivity, and equality for all, then I demand that you rise to your feet and applaud not only for yourselves, but for the foundation we are laying for our children.”

Susan Bro the mother of Heather Heyer, the political activist brutally murdered in Charlottesville Virginia, joined personalities and lyricists onstage for a memorable evening, dedicating awards to all present.

Only 15 days ago my daughter was killed as she protested racism,” said Bro. “I miss her but I know she’s here tonight. I’ve been deeply moved to see people across the world…find inspiration in her courage.
