Joe Biden Officially Wins Democratic Nomination For Presidential Election

Joe Biden has officially won the Democratic Nomination for President.

CBS News is reporting that the 77-year-old politician has “secured more than 1,991 delegates”, which is enough to take the nomination, officially.

The numbers come from primary elections that were held this week all over the country.

Joe has been the last remaining politician in the Democratic party for the Presidential race, as Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Mike Bloomberg, and Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the race earlier this year.

Just recently, Joe has opened up about how he’ll be choosing a running mate for the election, hinting before that Kamala was a front runner for that position.

If you missed it, earlier this week, Joe also held a press conference in Philadelphia, where he addressed the recent protests following the unjust murder of George Floyd and also talked about the country’s coronavirus response from leadership.

Jeff Bezos Stands By Amazon's Support of Black Lives Matter In Email Response to Customer

Jeff Bezos Stands By Amazon's Support of Black Lives Matter In Email Response to Customer

Jeff Bezos is standing by Amazon’s stance on Black Lives Matter, sharing his response to one customer who cried out that “All Lives Matter” in an email to the company.

In the screenshot of an email, the customer says that it’s “disturbing” and “offensive” that the online retailer posted a message on the site showing they stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I have to disagree with you,” Jeff replied to the email in a second screenshot on the post. “‘Black Lives Matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. Black lives matter speaks to racism and the disproportionate risk that Black people face in our law enforcement and justice system.”

He went on to point out that he doesn’t have to worry that his son “might be choked to death while being detained one day. I want you to know I support this movement that we see happening all around us and my stance won’t change.”

Just a few days before, Amazon announced that they would be donating $10 million to social justice organizations in support of Black communities.

Bryce Dallas Howard's Children Had An Impact On Baby Yoda in 'The Mandalorian'

Bryce Dallas Howard's Children Had An Impact On Baby Yoda in 'The Mandalorian'

You can thank Bryce Dallas Howard‘s children for that soup sipping Baby Yoda moment in The Mandalorian.

The 39-year-old filmmaker revealed during the ATX Festival (via Page Six) that her kids, Theodore and Beatrice, were always asking about Baby Yoda during filming of the first season.

Bryce shared that her kids would often come to the set with her and were always asking about Baby Yoda, which led to the iconic meme of Baby Yoda sipping soup.

“My kids were on set pretty much every day,” she said. “Even before we came to set, when it was the storyboards for the episode… when we were just conceiving of things, my [then-six] daughter would come into the editing room and whenever Baby [Yoda] wasn’t on screen, she would lean over to me and be like, ‘Where’s Baby? Where’s Baby? Where’s Baby?’ [Executive producer] Jon [Favreau] picked up on that, like, ‘Oh yeah — if the kid is wondering where Baby is, then we need to know where Baby is at all times.’

Bryce continued, “There was something with the kids where Baby was very real and Baby was in danger and they needed to see where Baby was at all times… They needed to know Baby was safe, and from that a variety of moments came up that were constructed just because we wanted everyone to know Baby was safe.”

If you missed it, there will apparently be Baby Yoda cereal coming this summer!

'Fantastic Four' Director Josh Trank Says He Wanted To Cast a Black Actress For Sue Storm

'Fantastic Four' Director Josh Trank Says He Wanted To Cast a Black Actress For Sue Storm

Josh Trank is opening up about his original ideas for 2015′s Fantastic Four and is regretting not fighting to cast a black actress for the role of Sue Storm.

While speaking with Geeks of Color, the filmmaker opened up about his regrets.

“There were a lot of controversial conversations that were had behind the scenes on that. I was mostly interested in a black Sue Storm, a black Johnny Storm, and a black Franklin Storm,” he shared with the site. “But also, when you’re dealing with a studio on a massive movie like that, everybody wants to keep an open mind to, like, who the big stars are going to be. ‘Maybe it’ll be Margot Robbie,’ or something like that.”

However, when it came to casting the part, Josh says he “found a lot of pretty heavy pushback on casting a Black woman in that role…when I look back on that, I should have just walked when that realization sort of hit me, and I feel embarrassed about that, that I didn’t just out of principle. Because those aren’t the values I stand for in my own life; those weren’t the values then or ever for me.”

He adds, “I’m somebody who always talks about standing up for what I believe in, even if it means burning my career out. I feel bad that I didn’t take it to the mat with that issue. I feel like I failed in that regard.”

Kate Mara starred as Sue in the film, opposite Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller and her future husband, Jamie Bell.

Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, & Their Kids Pay Respects at a Breonna Taylor Memorial in L.A.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are joined by some of their kids while attending a memorial for the late Breonna Taylor on Friday afternoon (June 5) in downtown Los Angeles.

The longtime friends brought their kids to pay their respects on what would have been Breonna‘s 27th birthday. She was killed on March 13 when police entered her apartment unannounced and shot her eight times.

The officers were at the wrong address and looking for a suspect who had already been taken into custody. None of them have been fired or charged for Breonna‘s murder.

Before she was killed, Breonna was an award-winning EMT who had been working on the frontlines of COVID-19 and she had plans to become a nurse.

Ben, Matt, and the kids were clearly moved by Breonna‘s story and made sure to pay their respects in person. They all carried bouquets of flowers to place at the memorial.

Read what celebs are saying in their birthday messages for Breonna.

Tinashe Opens Up About Her Experience at Black Lives Matter Protests

Tinashe Opens Up About Her Experience at Black Lives Matter Protests

Tinashe is opening up about what she experienced in being part of several Black Lives Matter protests over the past week.

The 27-year-old singer spoke with US Weekly, revealing that just speaking up on social media wasn’t enough for her and after the first day she attended a protest, she came back for more.

“I was just seeing everything that was happening, and posting on Instagram just didn’t feel like enough,” she shared. “I felt like, ‘What could I do to actually, physically put myself into this narrative?’ And so I went down, and that was the first day of protest. And ever since then, they’ve just gotten bigger and bigger and more unified. And it’s just really been amazing to see.”

Tinashe adds that personally, she hasn’t been seeing a lot of violence on her end.

“The environment that I felt that I was in while I was actually at the protest didn’t feel scary and it didn’t feel violent,” she says. “There were obviously moments where that really escalated. When the police would step in and use their unnecessary force, [but] that was really called out, which is amazing that we have the use of cellphones and we have all these ways to share that.”

“I think that that helped people really see that the protesters themselves weren’t the ones that were the agitators,” Tinashe said. “It was never a fear energy, it was never an energy of anger. It was always like, ‘We are here, we are one, we are brave, we’ll stand together.’”

This other musician has been on the frontlines of the protests and sharing their own experience. See what they shared here…

'Lady G' Is Trending Because of Allegations Seemingly Made About Lindsey Graham

'Lady G' Is Trending Because of Allegations Seemingly Made About Lindsey Graham

“Lady G” has been trending on Twitter all day, but it has nothing to do with Lady Gaga.

It all started after gay adult film star Sean Harding tweeted this: “There is a homophobic republican senator who is no better than Trump who keeps passing legislation that is damaging to the lgbt and minority communities. Every sex worker I know has been hired by this man. Wondering if enough of us spoke out if that could get him out of office?”

Harding followed up the tweet by saying, “I cannot do this alone. If you’d be willing to stand with me against LG please let me know.”

The only senator with the initials LG is South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, a Republican senator who has been in office since 2003 and is known for supporting anti-gay policies. Twitter has also associated his name with the trend, as seen in the screencap.

“Lady G” is reportedly the nickname that the senator is known by among sex workers.

Graham has not commented on the allegationsand there has not yet been any evidence presented to back up the claims. You can read what people are saying on Twitter below.
