Mike Epps brought a kangaroo on stage during his comedy show in Detroit. Yes, this is a real story.

Remember the video I shared 4 days ago of a man walking a #kangaroo on a leash in #Detroit? On that post I explained how he runs a travelling, mobile Exotic Zoo where people pay to hire out alligators, lynxes, pythons and even kangaroos for birthday parties and other functions. _ Well #MikeEpps paid to have this kangaroo join him up on stage at his rap concert in Detroit and the world is finding it hilarious 🙄 . _ The only good thing about this video is when the kangaroo backhands Epps to the face as if to say ‘leave me alone’ but this is all so wrong. It’s animal exploitation. The worst part of all of this is the fact that nobody involved seems to have any idea about these animals. _ Kangaroos for example (and macropods in general) can suffer from something called STRESS MYOPATHY which means that stress can literally kill them. After experiencing extreme stress, their muscle fibres can begin to disintegrate causing paralysis and then death. This loud claustrophobic rap concert with flashing lights is clearly a very stressful situation for this kangaroo to be in, which means his life is at risk #LeaveAnimalsAlone 💔😞 . _ Caption @a_lallie Video #Repost @pmwhiphop:Straight clowning!!!

We have no idea why Mike thought bringing a leashed kangaroo on stage during his noisy, crowded show would be a good idea, but he did. Actually he thought it was hilarious. The Internet, however, didn’t.

Epps immediately caught intense backlash for what many people thought was animal cruelty. And although he didn’t physically harm the marsupial, folks still didn’t like that the animal looked scared and uncomfortable on stage.

Now, it’s being reported that a representative for the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture is looking into the event as the Animal Welfare Act requires that handlers be “in control of the animal at all times.” This kangaroo’s handler, Javon Stacks, is the one holding the leash. Stacks claims to own a traveling exotic zoo and says he has all his necessary licenses.

For his part, Mike did apologize, but not before posting this video, “proving” that he and the ‘Roo are buddies. His caption stated, “Yeh what’s the problem now, look how nice I am 2 him! Theses guys are license zoo keepers!”

Rihanna Admits To Having A “Fluctuating Body Type” — And This Is How She Deals With It

Published

on

Earlier this year, rumors were running rampant that Rihanna was pregnant. It became quickly evident that the singer was not carrying, but we are now learning that the apparent weight gain might’ve have ben due to fluctuation.

During an interview with The Cut, Badgalriri suggested she has a “fluctuating body type,” but that she’s learned how to dress for the variations. “I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day—the next week—I need something oversized,” she said while promoting her new Fenty x Puma line.

She added, “I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?”

The singer went on to explain that because people’s bodies are constantly changing, fashion should not be mundane. “I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning,” she explained. “I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing.”

She continued, “And then, if you take it further, it’s like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?”

The fashion designer added, “I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering.”

Rihanna is not just a fashionista, but she is also wildly confident in every garment she rocks. Confidence is major for the singer, who expressed to the fashion outlet that it’s men in black who rule dressing with confidence.

Yes. This is new for me; this is recent. I love a man in black,” she explained. “It’s so sexy and mysterious; confident and secure—all the things I love about a man. So, I’m into that.”

Ri celebrated the launch of her new line just last week. Click here to see photos.
