#GirlBye! Raven-Symone is Dragged By Twitter for Shading Jay-Z, T.I., & Others!

“So you mad or naw?” That is why Twitter’s reaction has been to actress/singer, Raven-Symone. Apparently Raven is once again on everyone’s bad side after she shaded Jay-Z, Diddy, T.I., and other notable rappers in a photo from their appearance at the Rocc Nation Brunch last week.

Raven-Symoné was slowing winning people back with her super cute ‘Raven’s Home’ show on the Disney Channel, but unfortunately the actress managed to piss everyone off again with recent Instagram comments.

The television star reposted a photo including T.I., Jay Z, Diddy, and others gathering at the Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch.

The photo featured a caption that criticized the men’s success:

“A group of so-called ‘successful’ Black men (minus Khalid [sic] racially) who became rich and famous from perpetuating the worst Black stereotypes to the ears and eyes of the whole planet like drug dealing, pimping, murdering other Black men and disrespecting Black women. I know, making observations is being a hater. Cheers.”

Raven captioned the photo with a set of emojis—the monocle, the mouthless face, and a yellow heart—that suggested she agreed with the sentiment.

She later deleted her post, but then posted a note stating she stands by everything she said:

SMH

Honestly, we did not see anything wrong with the gathering of Black artists, actors, moguls, and media at the Rocc Nation Brunch. To us it is a clear example of nation building and uplifting one another. We are not sure what has gotten Raven-Symone in such a tizzy again, but we need her to focus on her show, Raven’s Home–AND THAT’S IT!

“It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you” without a dope dude to crush to! It is Monday morning and finally we are back to #CelebrityCrush-ing! This week’s pick is still a fresh face to the industry, mostly known for his role on Netflix’s hit “movie made series,” Dear White People! We are here for “Lionel Higgins” himself, DeRon Horton!

DeRon Horton as “Lionel Higgins”

DeRon has had a pretty interesting life, having been born in Texas, but raised in Saudi Arabia. He graduated from Atlanta’s very own Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) where he majored in Performing Arts. As aforementioned, DeRon stars in  Dear White People, but he has also starred in the short film Lions and Lambs, had his first leading role in Dirt, and is one of the stars of Netflix’s original movies, Burning Sands. He also happens to be a talented musician!

As you can see Mr. Horton is quite accomplished, but what most people seem to glance over is just how really SEXY this man is. The boy has a serious body and we love his smile. As Lionel you would never tell he is so ripped being that they have to keep him so nerdy, but in Season 2 of the series we need them to let his character have a “glow up” so we can see all this “man-nificence!” Brandon P. Bell and Marque Richardson are not the only eye candy on this series and we dying to see it!

Check out a few more sexy pictures of DeRon below and tell us what you think? Happy Monday! Continue Man Crushing!

#CelebrityCrush- Chris Wood (@ChristophrWood)

We are living in the age of superheroes–at least on television and in movies we are! Shows based on our favorite super beings have not only perforated genres, but have some pretty hot and talented people on them. If you are a fan of The CW’s “Arrowverse”–a collection of DC Comics-based shows that share a collective multiverse spanning Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and hopefully Black Lightning. 

One hottie however has our hearts and minds on this Monday morning, Chris Wood! This week’s Celebrity Crush!

Chris Wood is one amazingly talented actor who first came onto our radar thanks to now classic The CW shows, The Carrie Diaries and The Vampire Diaries. The thing we love about Chris is the versatility of his roles. Sure, he can be the smooth, suave, and debonair leading man, but he can also be the goofy boy next door. Herein, is how he won us over. On Supergirl, he portrays Mon-El, an alien being with powers similar to Supergirl’s, but with a noted weakness to lead and not Kryptonite. For most of his time on the show his character was the heroine’s love interest and reluctant crime-fighting partner. Now, he is taking charge in the midseason premiere avenging a fallen Supergirl, alongside his wife, Saturn Girl (Amy Jackson). However, even though he is incredibly powerful he is very naive with a lot to learn.

Chris is one seriously sexy ass man! If you like vanilla ice cream then he is definitely the two scoops you want. That smile of his is to die for and in the body department he is definitely not bad at all. Also, he is one of those guys beard or no beard, is equally hot. We have to admit we do like him with one. He just looks more bad ass. You all just be sure to catch him tonight in the The CW’s Supergirl, 8 PM EST!
