Comedian/Actor, Tracy Morgan, filed a lawsuit against Wal*Mart back in July over the accident that took place in April. His reasoning for suing is quite obvious…he lost his friend James McNair and he along with other passengers were critically injured. Tracy had to undergo surgeries on his ribs and his leg and he spent several weeks in rehab. Well, guess what? Wal*Mart said that the passengers need to take some of the blame because they were not wearing seat belts in the limo van. They said that it constitutes as unreasonable conduct. What do you all think about that? People usually don’t wear seat belts in limo vans..at least not that I know of. Remember, the allegations against the truck driver though. He allegedly fell asleep behind the wheel..he was driving 65mph in a 45mph zone..due to construction. Do you agree with Wal*Mart?
The New England Patriots were destroyed by the Kansas City Chiefs last night…41-14.

Okay so a Chris Brown fan…wait pause, a drunk Chris Brown fan named Mandee is contemplating whether or not she wants to take legal action against Chris. Why? Okay so he was leaving the stage after performing at the Houston club. He was walking through a crowd of people and drunk Mandee decides to grab his face in attempts to kiss him and he pushed her off of him. She thinks that he did too much and went too far. Well, TMZ has the video and what I saw was Chris walking through a crowd, with his head turned around (basically looking behind him) and she literally turned his whole face around. Umm drunk lady? How would you respond if someone turned your head around with their drunken lips perked out? I mean in her nails were digging into his cheeks she was holding him so hard. He doesn’t know you, what did you expect Mandee? What do y’all think? To see the video, Click the link below:
Hip Hop DX reported that rapper TI received the key to the city of Jackson, Mississippi. That is a great honor;however, some people feel like the mayor and other officials made a bad choice. TI spoke with children of Jacksonand he told them to take a different route than he did (you know, legally). Of course people are still going to disagree with TI getting the key but I guess the fact that he’s so open about his life made the mayor feel like his words were encouraging for the children.
