IS THIS WRONG??
You’ve probably heard that Burger King is launching a new, healthier menu featuring things like salads, snack wraps, and smoothies. To launch the new menu items, they filmed ads with some major celebrities: JAY LENO, DAVID BECKHAM, SALMA HAYEK and MARY J. BLIGE. Unfortunately, nobody in the marketing department saw a red flag when the decision was made to have the black celebrity . . . Mary J. . . . sing about the CRISPY CHICKEN SNACK WRAP. All four ads appeared online yesterday, and people immediately started crying foul, saying it was stereotypical and insulting to have a black woman singing about fried chicken. So BK pulled Mary’s ad . . . but not the other three. So was it pulled because of the alleged racism? BK says no. Here’s their statement . . . quote, “The Mary J. Blige advertisement has been pulled due to a licensing issue. Burger King expects to have the Blige ads back on air soon.” Yeah right…
MACHO CAMACHO ARRESTED
Former boxing champ Hector “Macho” Camacho has been arrested for child abuse … after allegedly slamming his teenage son to the ground and stomping on him last year. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the 49-year-old boxer turned himself into authorities yesterday … over the incident that allegedly went down at his ex-wife’s home on March 22, 2011. Macho’s son reportedly told authorities he believed the boxer was “high on drugs” during the incident. Macho’s rep says the boxer is adamant he is not a drug user … and says, “Everything has been resolved between him and his family.”
WHAT IF O.J. DIDN’T DO IT?
What if O.J. SIMPSON wasn’t lying all those years when he said he never killed anybody? Because according to a new book, he DIDN’T. A private investigator named William Dear has spent years investigating the case, and he says the REAL KILLER was O.J.’s son JASON SIMPSON.
Dear claims to have found a mountain of CIRCUMSTANTIAL evidence in an abandoned storage locker . . . and by digging through Jason’s trash. Among that evidence is a HUNTING KNIFE that could be the murder weapon cops never found. There are also pictures of Jason wearing knit caps like the one at the crime scene that couldn’t be linked to O.J. Dear also says Jason suffered from, quote, “intermittent rage disorder”, and assaulted a girlfriend two months before the murders. In his diary at the time, Jason confessed to heavy drug use and a Jekyll-and-Hyde personality . . . and he said, quote, “This is the year of the knife for me.” At the time of their investigation, the LAPD said Jason had an alibi, and ruled him out as the killer of his stepmother NICOLE BROWN and her friend RON GOLDMAN. He was never interviewed, and his DNA and fingerprints were never compared to evidence collected at the crime scene. Jason is 41 now. Dear’s book is called “O.J. Is Innocent And I Can Prove It”, and it’s out now.
