Alexi Lalas Says It Takes More Courage To Stand For Nation Anthem Than Kneel

Published

on

Retired USA Men’s National Team player and FOX Sports analyst Alexi Lalas is coming under fire for recent comments regarding players kneeling during the national anthem. Lalas says it takes more courage to stand during the anthem.

Lalas posted a tweet reading, “Now it takes courage to actually stand for the national anthem.”



“No it does not,” a Twitter user responded. “I stand for the national anthem knowing that those kneeling are taking the brunt of hate. I stand knowing that I’m not being judged, even by those kneeling. Standing is still the norm and isn’t shunned.”

Almost every single player knelt during the anthem in solidarity. Those kneeling during the anthem were not taking the brunt of hate.”

Lalas’ tweets were posted after the NWSL Challenge Cup kick-off, during which, both the Portland Thorns and North Carolina Courage kneeled to protest racial injustice. 

“We took a knee today to protest racial injustice, police brutality, and systemic racism against Black people and people of color in America,” the Thorns and Courage players said in a joint statement. “We love our country and we have taken this opportunity to hold it to a higher standard. It is our duty to demand that the liberties and freedoms that this nation was founded upon are extended to everyone.”

A1 Bentley Compares Himself To Russell Wilson: “It’s Like Hitting The Lottery”

If there’s a Hollywood couple that makes everyone adore them and turn green with envy simultaneously, it’s Ciara and Russell Wilson. The beaming couple never skips a beat in sharing their wedded bliss as their growing, blended family is often seen on social media enjoying a life of luxury and togetherness. Not every famous couple can boast of the same happiness, including Love & Hip Hop’s A1 Bentley, or SprngBrk as he’s now calling himself, and his estranged wife, Lyrica Anderson.

The two have put their marriage woes on display for reality television fans, but recently, the couple took themselves from VH1 to the Zeus Network as features on The Conversation. There, they spoke openly about his infidelities and Lyrica’s inability to move on, and according to A1, he knows that he’s a Russell Wilson type of man.



“I have had my fun, I have been out there and I know that it’s nothing out there,” A1 said. “So, speaking from experiences I’m telling you… It’s like hitting the lottery, I will tell you that. Not every Ciara is gonna run into a Russell. There aren’t a lot out there.” Lyrica added,  “Man, she got her one.” A1 chimed in and said, “And I’m like a Russell.” Check out clips of these two on The Conversation below.

Reddit Finally Bans Pro-Trump Subreddit For Hate Speech

Published

on

On Monday, popular social media site Reddit banned ‘r/The_Donald,’ a subreddit thread dedicated to discussing Donald Trump, as part of a sitewide purge of over 2,000 groups that were in violation of the site’s rules. 

This move marks a stark change in the discussion-based site’s policy. The site has previously given more leeway to groups and individuals in regards to censoring content. Announced on Monday, an amended Reddit content policy explicitly states that groups or individuals that “incite violence or that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability” are forbidden. “Everyone has a right to use Reddit free of harassment, bullying, and threats of violence,” the new policy states. 



The r/The_Donald forum is infamous for having users post racist, misogynistic, Islamaphobic, and anti-Semitic content. At one point, the group had nearly 800,000 active users. The group had already been ‘quarantined’ by the site in 2019 before receiving an official ban.

In a post regarding the new policy, Reddit CEO and co-founder Steve Huffman acknowledged that he had fallen short in supporting Reddit users by not having a comprehensive anti-hate policy. Huffman added, “We are committed to working with you to combat the bad actors, abusive behaviors, and toxic communities that undermine our mission and exist solely to get in the way of the creativity, discussions, and communities that bring us all to Reddit in the first place.”

“All communities on Reddit must abide by our content policy in good faith,” Huffman continued. He also explained that The_Donald was banned “because it has not done so, despite every opportunity. The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average” and “antagonized us and other communities.”

As of 2020, the site is the 19th-most-visited website in the world, according to Alexa Internet.

Tyga Hands Hulk Hogan’s Son An L After Sliding In His GF’s DM

Published

on

There was a point when Tyga was pretty much a walking L but he’s bounced back. In actuality, it feels like he’s handing out Ls today. Most recently, he got into a little back and forth with Hulk Hogan’s son, Nick Hogan. It all started earlier today when Nick Hogan attempted to “expose” Tyga for sliding in his girlfriend’s DMs. Tyga essentially reacted to her IG Story with lustful eyes before Nick Hogan replied with a selfie of himself, replying, “What’s up.” “When they slide in @thetanalea’s DM’s,” Hogan captioned it.

Ultimately, it was Tyga who had the last laugh in the scenario. Moments later, he shared a screenshot revealing that Lea had been in his DMs in 2018 and apparently, it took him two years to actually reply. He deleted the post from his Instagram Story, though he did flex a little bit harder afterward.

Tyga shared a video of himself by a pool surrounded by women. “Y’all know my body,” he captioned the video. However, what’s more interesting than the women in the video is that Tyga also previewed an unreleased collaboration with Quavo and Pop Smoke that we’ll hopefully be hearing in its entirety soon.
