Some folks in Finland are up in arms over the newly crowned Miss Helsinki. Nineteen-year-old Sephora Iklaba won the competition last week, besting the two other finalists pictured above. Since her victory, however, Sephora has been dealing with backlash over several things. First, she was originally born in Nigeria, which some say disqualifies her from the competition. And, according to those with a judgmental eye, the title of Miss Helsinki should be held by a woman who is more attractive. Yikes.

“If people start saying that this thing is attractive, I [have] lost all faith in humanity,” one person commented on Instagram. “Political correctness won. She’s damn ugly and not even from Finland,” another commented on social media. “It’s not that she’s black, it’s that she’s the least beautiful of all the entrants,” someone else noted.

Thankfully, Iklaba isn’t letting all the shade rain on her parade. She took to Instagram to clap back at her detractors, writing, “Be humble but still let these motherf*ckers know you worked for what you got!” She also shared her reason for doing the competition was “to be a good role model for young people and to represent those who are really unsure of themselves and are going through difficult issues”.

Colin Kaepernick might’ve just eluded to the desire to own an NFL team over playing for the league.

As Kaepernick’s journey remains unclear with the NFL, one thing is now known for sure, he wants to own a team. But get this, he’s not alone.

Following the announcement by Carolina Panthers owner, Jerry Richardson, that he is selling the team, Diddy immediately started to campaign. “I would like to buy @panthers. Spread the word,” he tweeted. “There are no majority African American NFL owners. Let’s make history.”

In response, not only did Kaepernick tweet that he wants to be part of “the ownership group,” but Golden State Warriors star, Steph Curry, also expressed he wants “in.”

Diddy followed up with,”Holla at me, let’s get it.”

To have a team owned by Diddy, Curry and Kaepernick would flip the league upside down and paint the picture for change. But what could they do for the league?

According to Diddy, if his dream came to fruition, the first thing he would do is address the Kaepernick “situation.” It was last season that the then 49ers quarterback kneeled in protest against racial inequality and police brutality.

The protest sparked national outrage, division across the NFL and even lead to Colin being blackballed — but could Diddy be the answer to the league’s controversial discussion?

The bigger question is; would Colin choose to take the corporate side over the field?
