The 15 second video showing a white police officer aggressively slamming, dragging and detaining a young Black female student has created an outrage online and now the deputy involved may be facing charges.

The incident occurred in Columbia, South Carolina at Spring Valley High. The school’s resource officer, Deputy Ben Fields, was reportedly called in to help with a disruptive student that was refusing to leave class … that’s when he grabbed her, flipped her desk over, threw her to the ground and drug her across the floor … all in an effort to ultimately cuff her.

Now, we know that at least one person in the classroom cried out in protest and that young lady was unfortunately arrested as well. Niya Kenny told WLTX that the teen, who has not yet been identified, only took out her cell phone in class and that is why she was reprimanded. When Kenny spoke out in her defense she faced the wrath of the officer as well.

Following the incident Kenny was arrested and released on $1,000 bond. The young lady initially assaulted by the officer is said to have sustained injuries and is traumatized by the event. Officer Fields has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into the incident.

In a statement, the chairman of the school board called the video “extremely disturbing”, while the superintendent stated they are “deeply concerned”. The FBI has launched a civil rights investigation into the incident and we will continue to follow this story as it develops.

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy



Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
