3 dead at California Ford dealership after gunman who was fired returns to shoot dead 2 colleagues before killing himself

A disgruntled employee has shot dead two colleagues at a Ford dealership in the San Francisco Bay Area before turning the gun on himself.

Rappers Demand Fox News Presenter Is Fired For Mocking Nipsey Hussle

Calls have mounted from rappers demanding Fox News fire host Laura Ingraham for her insensitive coverage of Nipsey Hussle’s funeral. On Friday, just after Hussle’s funeral, Ingraham joked about a 2016 song by artist YG called “FDT,” or “Fuck Donald Trump,” in which Hussle was featured. Ingraham misleadingly stated that Hussle had released the song, making no reference to YG before airing part of the music video in which Hussle is nowhere to be seen. “That’s a very creative refrain, very catchy,” she remarked, asking if the line was “related to the lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African Americans.” Ingraham and network contributor Raymond Arroyo then laughed over Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan calling Hussle “Nipsey Russell” in a eulogy, seemingly by mistake. H...

Empire Cast Members Want Jussie Smollett Fired

Some Empire cast members want Jussie Smollett fired, as they feel betrayed by him, and also damaged the show’s image, TMZ reports. According to the gossip website, many of the “Empire” actors are “f**king furious” and feel if FOX honchos don’t fire Jussie, he should quit on his own because he doesn’t deserve a spot on the hit show.
