Where should I begin?…Let’s start with the fact that my Mac decided to die on me and I’m currently blogging through the Word Press app on my phone. Then, let’s discuss how I wrote an entire post before this one and accidentally deleted it….😭
I was THIS close to calling it a night, but I realized that I declared my dedication two weeks ago, so let’s get it!
Hot Mess #1: Father of Brock Turner for being insensitive
The Stanford University rape case has been all over the news. For those of you who are completely clueless, Brock Turner, a former star swimmer at Stanford, was charged for sexually assaulting an unconscious female student. After hearing about Brock receiving only 6 months in the jailhouse, people grew furious over the “leniency” of Brock’s sentence.
What’s making matters worse is Brock’s father’s letter. In the letter, Dan Turner asks the court for leniency, stating that his son’s life should not be ruined for “20 minutes of action.” Pause.
YES, pause to the Pause. This fool REALLY put that in a letter. Read here: Brock Turner’s father sparks outrage
Sigh, I wish I was making this up, but apparently some people don’t take rape seriously… Not to mention, how disturbing is it that this is Dan’s reaction to his son raping a woman behind a dumpster on campus? #Amess
Side note: Just like Cosby, something looks off with Brock (pictured above). It’s all in the eyes people…all in the eyes…
Hot Mess #2: Kanye West for causing a “riot”
Yesterday, festivalgoers were noticeably annoyed on Twitter after Governors Ball was canceled due to severe weather conditions. The most popular complaint was the fact that people would be missing their opportunity to see Kanye West perform.
In what I’ll call an attempt to cheer his fans up, Kanye tweeted “Show at 2 a.m. SOLD OUT.” The tweet had fans going crazy over what they thought would be a surprise concert at Webster Hall nightclub in Manhattan.
Needless to say, Kanye West did not have a surprise concert. Instead, he drove by the massive crowd that had gathered outside of Webster Hall, allegedly causing one crazy roller coaster of fandom.
Although Kanye could have had the best intentions, his tweet led to loads of trash, damaged property, and even 1 arrest. Whoops…
And like a tweet in the night, Kanye was gone
Side note: Where is Saint West?…He’s like the most mysteriously MIA baby in the world. Lol
Hot Mess #3: Miss USA’s haters for hating
Last night, Miss DC, Deshauna Barber, was crowned Miss USA 2016. Even though Barber won the pageant fair and square, fans of the runner up, Miss Hawaii, are claiming that their girl was robbed.
Now, I will always be fair. During the question portion of the competition, Miss Hawaii was given a very suspect question that asked her to state who she would be voting for president. Although I understand the outrage with such a question, I do think people need to stop acting brand new. Every year, there’s a controversial question and I’ve seen pageant girls burned alive for their answers. I mean, remember when that one girl was asked about her beliefs around gay marriage? Yeah…
Anyways, Hawaii answered the question gracefully, just not as well as DC answered hers. AND, to be even more fair, the last three contestants were all asked the same final question, which again resulted in DC giving the most eloquent answer. So, let’s stop the hateration and give Barber her props.

p.s. Let’s be honest. Miss Hawaii is tall and “classically” beautiful – whatever that means. People don’t think Barber can win Miss Universe most likely for her skin color (girl is chocolate). But, I know Barber will bring it. *snaps twice*
Hot Mess #4: Bernie Sanders for still feeling the bern
Now, I’m not really one to get political, but I’m so tired of this crappy election and my Miss USA commentary reminded me of that. None of the candidates excite me, and as far as I’m concerned, the one that drags out this tortuous election process the longest will forever be on my bad side. In this case, it’s Mr. Sanders.#sorryimnotsorry #notfeelingthebernthehillorthetrump #amess
Okay, my random rant is over… Lol
