KDF Promoter Sues The Game

A promoter for the Kentucky Derby Festival is suing The Game for $75,000 for not performing at the festival.

Apparently, the rapper had agreed to headline at the festival and was paid $35,000 in advance. Yet the day of, the L.A. rapper did a no show for his set after he found out that he had been bumped down from the headliner spot.

According to Courthouse News, the game was wired a deposit before the show. Although, he didn’t show the rapper did not pay the amount back.

The promotion company received a call from The Game’s manager on the day of and said that “The Game would not be performing unless he was headlining the event.”

Would you pick your Pride over the money or should he have behaved differently and did his part?

After all, The Game’s fans were expecting his performance. What is your point of view on this law suit?

Waka Flocka, Trey Burke and Shaq: Sued For Mocking Via Social Media

Making fun of people on social media may be entertaining. People tend to post things to get the audience’s attention and they do it for likes rather than care about what someone might think or if someone may be affected by these posts, in this case, Waka Flocka Flame, Trey Burke and Shaquile O’Neal; were just a few of a handful of celebrities that were named in a lawsuit filed by 23-year-old Jahmel Binion.

A couple of months ago, these celebrities all posted and made fun of a photo of Binion, who suffers from hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia –which is a disease that causes missing teeth and facial deformities—on Instagram and Twitter.

According to Malcom Daily, the lawsuit states that, “The defendants’ communications clearly implied that the plaintiff was an appropriate object of mockery, ridicule and shame [and] had the effect of lowering the plaintiff’s reputation in the eyes of those who respected the views and opinion of the defendants.” 

The sarcasm began when Shaq posted a side-by-side photo of himself and Binion (who was toothless) with a caption that said, “Smile today.” Shortly after, Waka Flocka and Burke posted pictures of their own. 

Shortly after the photos were posted all three of them reached out to Binion and apologized for their actions. Later on, Binion revealed to the Macomb Daily that he felt the apologies weren’t sincere.

“When they said sorry, I felt like they were saying it to get the pressure off of them for being considered ‘bad people,’” stated Binion. “Even though I accept their apology, I still hope that they donate to my cause or other organizations that connect with ectodermal dysplasia.”

Binion is supposedly suing for insult, intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and finally, general negligence. 

What is your opinion? Do you believe that the apologies were sincere or that they were just a way to release the pressure from the celebrities?
