Another day, another cryptic Instagram story from Khloe Kardashian.

Fresh from the intense drama of her ex-boyfriend cheating (again), but this time with Kylie Jenner's BFF Jordyn Woods, Khloe is making it VERY clear how pissed off she is at Jordyn.

News broke on Wednesday that Woods has recorded a tell-all interview for the Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, despite having signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with the Kardashian clan for her job as an extra on their reality show. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Khloe Snapchat (@khloesnapchats) on

The scalding hot tea (interview) is airing TONIGHT at 3am Irish time on the Red Table Talk Facebook live, and everyone is gagging to hear her side of the story,

Allegedly, she claims to never have slept with Tristan; they just shared a kiss, and states alcohol didn't play a part.

Tristan and Jordyn were hanging out with Drake “and his crew” according to E! News, and were “definitely hanging close to one another and were being very flirty. Tristan had his arms around her at one point.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by HEIR JORDYN (@jordynwoods) on

“Jordyn stood by him the entire time they were out and he was laughing and smiling at her.” Of course, the situation “quickly escalated” between them and she went to a secretive party at Tristan's home.

Jordyn goes way back with the Smith family, so it's understandable why she chose to go to Jada with the problem. Khloe doesn't seem too happy with the entire scenario, continuously posting cryptic messages to her Instagram stories.

The latest says: "You ever notice people would rather stop speaking to you instead of apologising when they're wrong?"

Clearly the reality tv star family aren't best pleased with Jordyn's choice to give a tell-all interview with Jada Pinkett Smith, rather than publicly apologising.

Jordyn is expected to apologise to Khloe during the interview, but we doubt the 34-year-old mum of True Thompson will accept it lightly.

Time will tell if Jordyn will make her way back into the Kardashian family circle, and if Kylie Jenner will continue their friendship. Khloe and Tristan are now officially over, so we'll see what happens there too.

Alongside Prada and Gucci's blackface scandals, major fashion brands have recently come under fire for making some major PC-related errors.

Burberry is the latest company to be added to this list of elite couture scandals, after their autumn/winter collection at London Fashion Week featured a hoodie with strings resembling a noose.

Yes, you read that right. An actual noose, akin to those used for lynchings or suicides. They really didn't think this one through…and now the model who wore the design down the runway has expressed her horror;

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 (@liz.kennedy_) on

Liz Kennedy, turned to Instagram to illustrate her anger and disturbance after she was fitted wearing the hoodie, as suicide touches a personal nerve for her.

"Suicide is not fashion. It is not glamorous nor edgy and since this show is dedicated to the youth expressing their voice, here I go. Riccardo Tisci and everyone at Burberry: it is beyond me how you could let a look resembling a noose hanging from a neck out on the runway," she wrote.

She stated that the Burberry team "briefly hung one from the ceiling (trying to figure out the knot) and were laughing about it in the dressing room. I had asked to speak to someone about it but the only thing I was told to do was to write a letter."

The brand released an apology statement following a huge wave of backlash after the runway show, and the design is now removed from the new collection.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by HYPEBAE (@hypebae) on

According to Fortune, Marco Gobbetti, Burberry chief executive officer, said;

"We are deeply sorry for the distress caused by one of the products that featured in our A/W 2019 runway collection. I called Ms. Kennedy to apologise as soon as I became aware of this on Monday and we immediately removed the product and all images that featured it."

He continued, "Though the design was inspired by the marine theme that ran throughout the collection, it was insensitive and we made a mistake."

The fashion faux pas follows Gucci's debut of a $890 balaclava sweater that evoked blackface images earlier this month.

Liz Kennedy also mentioned the impressionable young women who would see the noose hoodie;

"How could anyone overlook this and think it would be okay to do this especially in a line dedicated to young girls and youth. The impressionable youth. Not to mention the rising suicide rates world wide. Let’s not forget about the horrifying history of lynching either."

"I left my fitting extremely triggered after seeing this look (even though I did not wear it myself). Feeling as though I was right back where I was when I was going through an experience with suicide in my family," she said.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 (@liz.kennedy_) on

Kennedy also claims that she attempted to speak to someone about it, but was brushed off;

"I had a brief conversation with someone but all that it entailed was “it’s fashion. Nobody cares about what’s going on in your personal life so just keep it to yourself” well I’m sorry but this is an issue bigger than myself."

"The issue is not about me being upset, there is a bigger picture here of what fashion turns a blind eye to or does to gain publicity. A look so ignorantly put together and a situation so poorly handled. I am ashamed to have been apart of the show. #burberry."

The collection, Tempest, is Riccardo Tisci’s second for the brand. Marco Gobbetti has since called Kennedy to apologise personally and address the situation.

In an updated post, Kennedy wrote;

"My family and I were recently impacted by suicide so I know how devastating it is when someone you love decides to take their life. I’m not someone who is easily offended or triggered but I knew by the way this piece effected me, it would do the same to many others."

She continued, referencing Marco Gobbetti, Burberry's chief executive;

 "Whether people are dealing with suicide, mental illness themselves, or someone close to them facing these issues they can’t be taken lightly. Since my post, Marco called me to address the situation."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Love (@phoebephilochaser) on

"I think the response by Burberry and their team since then is commendable. I believe this is a learning moment and they will think about these things more in-depth moving forward."

The model bravely spoke out about the incident, and the brand has responded. It just goes to show that fashion isn't completely rigid, and it's valuable to call them out on their mistakes.

"The positive that has come out of this is a reminder of the power of one voice, and the good that can be done when brands are held accountable."

Fashion brand Gucci has been forced to apologise after releasing a balaclava-style jumper which resembles 'blackface', according to the Evening Standard.

The black piece of attire was being sold as part of their Fall/Winter 2018 campaign, and covers the lower half of the face and red mouth cut-out.

The jumper has now been removed from sale, and the brand has issued an apology after facing massive social media backlash for the offensive material.

Their statement was released by a spokesman for the luxury fashion house, saying that they consider diversity a 'fundamental value' of their company and that the incident would be adapted into a 'powerful learning movement';

"Gucci deeply apologises for the offence caused by the wool balaclava jumper. We can confirm that the item has been immediately removed from our online store and all physical stores."

“We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make. We are fully committed to increasing diversity throughout our organisation and turning this incident into a powerful learning moment for the Gucci team and beyond," it concluded.

The description for Gucci's item originally read; 

“Inspired by vintage ski masks, multi-coloured knitted balaclavas walked the runway, adding a mysterious feel to this collection. This knit top combines the accessory with the ready-to-wear collection.”

Social media users managed to get screenshots of the $890 jumper before it was pulled, ironically noting that it was Black History Month.

One Twitter user wrote; “Haute Couture Blackface for the millennials?”

Gucci's problems with fashion mishaps is the latest incident in a number of racially-charged mistakes by designer fashion brands. 

Prada removed items last month over products which were also concerning for the public.

It seems like every celebrity has been getting themselves into a spot of bother lately, even heartthrob singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes.

The 20-year-old Canadian artist has let his guitar-strumming fingers 'accidentally' like a transphobic tweet, and Twitter went OFF.

The tweet is hella offensive for trans people, so bear in mind it could be triggering to see. In essence, it makes a joke about testicular cancer for trans women, and Shawn liked it either by mistake or on purpose.

His fans were quick to point it out to him, telling him to unlike the tweet immediately and apologise for any unintentional harm caused. His fans definitely have some good sense..

The Stitches singer replied pretty promptly, explaining that he had accidentally liked the tweet while scrolling through his feed (hmm).

"Must of accidentally liked it scrolling down a feed, you know me and I'd never. Sorry," he tweeted to his 20 million followers.

He tweeted a simple, 'Love you' afterwards, most likely thanking his devoted fans for spotting a mistake which could have landed him in even more trouble had he not explained and apologised.

Why did a transphobic tweet pop up in his feed, though? He does follow over 50,000 accounts so it is probably difficult to keep track of all the comments coming his way.

He has also been very supportive of the LGBT+ community in the past. 

When producer Teddy Geiger transitioned last year, Shawn urged others to "just open your eyes and open your mind, because, for me, going through one of my closest friends going through a very big transition period in her life, was incredible to watch."

Good morning only to Cardi B.

First of all, let it be said that nobody knows the ins and outs of anyone else's personal relationship, so this opinion feature is purely based off the recent chain of public events involving Cardi and her (*cough* loser) hubby.

tonight show yes GIF by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

The infamous American rapper has hit the headlines time and time again since her meteoric rise in 2016, for a variety of reasons.

Most recently, it’s as a result of her estranged husband and fellow rapper Offset, of hip-hop group Migos.

After a string of alleged affairs and cheating scandals, Cardi announced their separation earlier this month, stating that they “grew out of love.”

That was all fine and dandy, until Saturday night, when Offset decided to gate-crash her headline show.

Oh, by the way, this was the FIRST EVER FEMALE headliner show of Rolling Loud in Los Angeles, but he decided to take this moment away from her in order to beg for her forgiveness.

He ruined the moment that was years in the making, so instead of the attention being on the rap star, it was transferred to her estranged husband.

After saying that he loved her and would do whatever it takes to get her back,  his embarrassment of Cardi did not result in reunited love. Shocker.

Naturally, he abandoned the stage to scattered boos. Of course, the internet had it’s weave snatched, and targeted her ex-husband with (semi-deserved) enraged tweets which only worsened the issue at hand.

He doesn’t need more attention than he’s getting, attention is power, and only Cardi deserves empowerment at this time.

Now where in the world could Offset have gotten the not-so-bright idea to interrupt her mid-show to roll out flowers that spelled out the words ‘Take Me Back Cardi’?

Maybe, from every rom-com ever?

Where normally the male protagonist does something unforgivable, or at least extremely disrespectful to the female character, and then carries out a grand show of his affection and apologises in public before she gives in and kisses him, cue the credits rolling?

Yes, I’m looking at you, Love Actually.

Most people claim that, by declaring his love for her so publicly and essentially opening himself up to media frenzy, he is profiting and capitalising off their relationship issues.

Problems which he and only he caused by cheating on a rap goddess who has worked incredibly hard to get to where she is now.

It has also been pointed out that he is emotionally manipulating her by using an audience to sway her into accepting his apology.

Needless to say, Cardi was NOT impressed with his actions. Rolling Loud are also deservedly getting dragged for allowing the whole charade to take place.

Tariq Cherif, co-founder of the festival, has even released a statement to Us Weekly saying:

"Headliners and their teams have full control of the stage and who is allowed on it during their set at Rolling Loud. The festival does not interfere with or influence a headliner’s set list. We have never and will never do anything to change a headliner’s set."

The big reunion which Offset had hoped for did not happen, but maybe the entire thing was just for publicity sake. If it was, it worked.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by OFFSET (@offsetyrn) on

He’s now firmly the focus of the entertainment media for the next week at least, and then he’ll most likely be yesterday’s news.

Anyone online who demands that Cardi return to a relationship where she was not being treated as she deserved to be need to called out for this gross error in judgement.

Offset wanted his ego stroked, and stormed into her place of work, calling to mind that absurd episode of Friends where Ross crashed into Rachel’s office with a picnic because he felt threatened by a male co-worker.

Toxic relationships become the centre of the stage, rather than the talent of the women involved. It’s as if they aren’t allowed to have love and a career.

His obvious display of toxic masculinity squashes any sense of true love, he simply shifted the power towards his side of the net by making himself the victim.

He most likely knew that his show of humiliation wouldn’t be met with joy by Cardi, but by putting himself in that position, he now has millions of fans feeling pity for him because of her rejection.

It’s a classic tactic done time and time again by people who want to have their cake and eat it too, they never hear the word ‘no’.

The entire debacle is problematic for a rake of reasons.

First of all, Cardi has been open in the past about her experiences with domestic abuse, and dating an incarcerated man. Both to escape abusive behaviours such as violence as well as poverty, Cardi B then turned to stripping.

She was in the Bloods gang from the age of sixteen, and in an abusive relationship at just 19. Exotic dancing was her key to success; her videos describing her experiences in the trade racked up millions of views online.

After already suffering at the hands of men she was in relationships with, before building up a HUGELY successful career, watching her allowing herself to be associated with a man who (allegedly…but pretty obviously) cheated on her is painful for her fans.

She is a much-loved personality whose music is an emblem of her own fiery energy.

Her music has broken hundreds of records, from SEVEN Grammy nominations, MTV VMA awards, to Billboard Hot 100 accolades such as the longest running female at the top of the charts for Bodak Yellow.

Her official debut album, Invasion of Privacy, has already broken streaming figure records and is Certified Gold in the US. She’s also a self-proclaimed feminist who believes in boosting other women, not to mention equality for men and women.

She is so unapologetic in the rap scene, dominating American charts especially because of how women relate and respond to her.

Her take-no-prisoners Bronx attitude and accent have attracted fascination and fans worldwide.

She is a figure who is far more complex than people give her credit for, and deciding whether or not to find the energy to forgive the father of your child for breaking your heart must be incredibly hard.

The day after all of this drama, the 26-year-old asked her fans to abandon their tirade against her ex, saying;

"I know I see a lot of people bashing me because I'm defending my baby's father, they think I'm gonna get back together with him. I'm not saying that I'm gonna get back together with him, I just don't like that bashing online thing.”

She’s being the bigger person after having her gig interrupted, suffering infidelity and humiliation as a result of his actions, and yet he thinks he deserves to have her back?

If he actually cared about her at all, he would give her the peace needed to heal from the damage which he has caused, and leave her the hell alone.

Cut off the negativity and toxicity from your life, and you will see how much you are worth. Only you can decide your worth, not some guy who thinks it’s okay to cheat on someone as amazing as you.

Cardi doesn’t waste her time, she doesn’t waste her money, and she certainly shouldn’t waste her life on someone like Offset.

Rant over, mic dropped, bodak yellowed.

Cardi B's ex-husband Offset is desperately trying to get his wife back, after posting an emotional message to Instagram apologising for his wrongs.

The Migos rapper claims that his 'one birthday wish' is to win Cardi B back and put the cheating scandal behind them.

Offset addressed the 'I Like It' rapper directly, saying;

"We're going through a lot of things right now, a lot of things in the media. I want to apologise to you Cardi. I embarrassed you. I made you go crazy."

He confessed to his shenanigans, appearing visibly emotional during the video;

"I was partaking in activity that I shouldn't have been partaking in, and I apologise. You know what I'm saying?" 

"For breaking your heart, for breaking our promise, for breaking God's promise and being a selfish, messed up husband."

He continued, "I'm trying to be a better person. I want to get this off my shoulders. I want to get this off my back. I apologise to you Cardi. I love you."

He then spoke about the former couple's five-month-old little girl, saying; "Kulture, I want to spend Christmas with you."

"I want to be able to spend the rest of my life with you," he then said to Cardi.

"I apologise. I am sorry for what I have done to you. I didn't f*ck that girl, but I was entertaining her, you know what I'm saying? I apologise, and I love you, and I hope you forgive me."

"My birthday wish is just to have you back."

Cardi has yet to address the apology video, but is reportedly torn whether to forgive her former lover or move on.

Would you be able to trust him again though? Probs not.

YouTuber Logan Paul faced major criticism two weeks ago after uploading a video of a deceased suicide victim to his 15 million subscribers.

The content creator visited Aokigahara, also known as the suicide forest due to the high number of suicides that occur there.

While there, Paul discovered the body of an individual who has taken their own life, filmed their body, and made a vlog about it.

 

A post shared by Logan Paul (@loganpaul) on

Since then, the YouTuber has apologised in a brief video, and has been disgraced by his actions.

The videographer has been staying out of the spotlight ever since, but had a message for critics when he was spotted by TMZ at a Los Angeles airport yesterday.

When asked about the situation, Logan Paul told paparazzi that: ‘Everyone deserves second chances, bro.’

 

A post shared by Logan Paul (@loganpaul) on

The internet celebrity was also asked what he had learned from his mistake, to which he replied: ‘Everything. So many things.’

Paps also asked the creator when a more thorough response and explanation for his actions could be expected.

The answer? ‘Soon,’ apparently.

His apology video has been viewed almost 45 million times on YouTube since the scandal broke.

Shane Dawson has issued a lengthy apology after fans accused him of joking about paedophilia in an unearthed podcast recorded six years ago.

Fans of the YouTube star were left furious after Pop Blast posted a edited audio clip in which the 29-year-old made controversial comments about meeting a six-year-old girl with over 100,000 followers on Instagram.

"I said OK, why do you have so many followers? And she said, 'Oh I’m a cheerleader' Oh really? And she shows me her Instagram which are like… First of all, I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but she’s like sexy," he said in the podcast.

 

A post shared by Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) on

Shane, who's YouTube channel has over 11 million subscribers, then went on to explain his “justification for paedophilia,” describing it as a “fetish” that some people have.

"Here’s my justification for paedophilia – people have foot fetishes, people have fetishes about everything, that’s fine, do your thing," he says.

"So why is it when somebody looks at and Googles like ‘naked baby’ on Google and jerks off to it, they can get arrested? I don’t understand that."

Needless to say, the viral clip garnered huge backlash, prompting the internet star to issue an apology.

"I am not a f**king pedophile!,” Shane said in a video uploaded on Wednesday.

 

A post shared by Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) on

"I loved the feeling of making somebody shocked and laugh because they couldn't believe what was coming out of my mouth. I wasn't confident enough to make smarter jokes. I was making the easy jokes,” he continued

"I was playing crazy stereotypical characters. I was doing sh*t that was racially insensitive, I was doing sh*t that was homophobic, I was doing shit that could be considered fat shaming, I was doing some f**ked up comedy stuff that I'm not proud of.”

Shane, who is known for his controversial content, insists that he has “changed so much as a person and as a creative” since the time of the recording.

 

A post shared by Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) on

"The stuff that I was saying back in those times I would never say now. Ever. Because I don't think that's funny. Listening to that clip now, I didn't laugh."

"I didn't think it was funny. But when you hear that clip, you hear my co-host laughing, which was my goal. I wanted to always make her shocked and laugh. That was our thing."

Jack Maynard has utilised his massive YouTube following to put out a new video addressing the offensive tweets which caused him to be booted off I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here earlier this week. 

His first upload since returning from the jungle, the 4-and-a-half minute long video is currently trending on YouTube, with almost 1 million views in 24 hours. 

The vlogger (and brother to singer Conor Maynard, don't you know) left the show and jetted out of Australia after facing criticism for a number of tweets he made previously. 

 

A post shared by Jack Maynard (@jack_maynard) on

The tweets were seen as racist and homophobic as they contained both the N-word and the word fa****.

'I've tweeted some bad things, some horrible things, some pretty disgusting things that I'm just ashamed of,' he said to his 1.2 million followers. 

'This is such a hard video, I've never wanted to have to make anything like this, I never wanted to feel like I've let you guys down so much, with something so careless and inconsiderate to other people.'

 

A post shared by Jack Maynard (@jack_maynard) on

Jack argued that his age and immaturity was the cause of the Tweets, and said that he is truly remorseful for the language he used at the time. 

'I was young I was careless, I just wasn't thinking, this was back when I had just left school and I didn't know what I was doing.'

'Like a lot of you growing up I was all over social media, my entire life is on social media, I've grown an amazing following,' he continued.

'Social media has led to be my entire job, my work is this online and everything that comes with it and I've messed up, I've been really stupid in the past.'

 

A post shared by Jack Maynard (@jack_maynard) on

'Growing up online is hard, all I can do is beg and encourage that you guys don't make the same mistake as well,' he concluded. 

'Don't put anything online you wouldn't say to your mum.'

The apology has been met with a mixed response from viewers, with some accepting the excuse of youth and naivety, while others feel the language was unacceptable regardless of age.

The recent uproar surrounding decade-old tweets unearthed from YouTube superstar Zoe Sugg's Twitter proves that deleting those old posts from when you were an idiotic teenager is always a good idea. 

The YouTuber, blogger and business woman was on the receiving end of serious backlash, when tweets that she posted a number of years ago were dug up and republished by social media sleuths. 

The tweets were penned between 2009 and 2012, and one which offended people in particular was the following:

In other tweets, referring to an unknown person, Zoe also said 'I just saw her Twitter. She needs to get dressed tbh. Lol skank attack.'

She also tweeted that another woman should have '"kept her legs shut" excuse my choice of words haha.'

It is not known what she was specifically referring to in this instance, though Zoe mentions in her apology that she was discussing a TV show. 

Another tweet showed her communicating with fellow mega-blogger Tanya Burr, in which she referred to someone as a 'tranny.' 

Another tweet has been criticised as Islamaphobic. 

In the tweet, Zoe took a picture of a woman in full hijab against her knowledge, and captioned it: 'There's a death eater on my train.'

Zoe, who has over 12 million followers on YouTube, has apologised for the statements that she made. 

'I’ve seen a few of my old tweets from 7/8 years ago floating around (which I have now deleted) using words like “chav” “skank” and other words I wouldn’t use now as part of my language and lot of them were taken out of context referring to TV shows but I would never say those things now and I’m sorry if I have offended anyone, that was not my intention,' she said via Twitter.  

'Obviously that is not who I am today and I’d like to think I’m a little older and wiser!'

'I’m not perfect and I’ve never claimed to be, I’m only human.'

Fans of the vlogger have rushed to her defence, claiming that Zoe was young and immature when she made the statements (she would have been aged 19-22) and that people change. 

'I don’t think it’s fair that people are judging Zoella on tweets from 7 years ago. I used to be quite a nasty person 7 years ago but I grew up and learned from that and so did she,' said one.

However, others have been discussing the damage to the very wholesome brand of Zoella under the '#ZoellaIsOverParty' hashtag. 

The apology comes after the online star was forced to defend her advent calendar, which received quite a bit of backlash online for it's price and quality of contents.

It's rare that a high-profile Hollywood couple make the decision to part ways without the press and public making reference to the involvement of a third party.

And it was no different when Chris Pratt and Anna Faris decided to call time on their ten-year relationship in August.

Indeed, rumours began circulating that the reason for the couple's split was due to Chris's relationship with Passengers co-star Jennifer Lawrence – a narrative that understandably didn't sit well with The Hunger Games star.

In her memoir, Unqualified, Anna notes that Jennifer reached out to her, and expressed regret over the dialogue surrounding the professional relationship she shared with Anna's husband.

"Jennifer and I really are friendly, and she was apologetic even though she didn’t need to be, because she hadn’t done anything wrong," Anna reasons.

"She’s awesome, but of course it’s hurtful and also embarrassing when people are saying your husband is cheating on you, even if it’s patently untrue."

"You still feel, and look, like a fool," the actress added.

Interestingly, Anna admits that while she was warned of the potential rumours which would likely begin circulating once Chris and Jennifer began shooting, she felt she had no cause for concern.

"Even before they met in person, my publicist, out of the blue, pulled me aside and said, “Anna, listen, there are going to be paparazzi all over them."

"She said 'There are going to be shots of them laughing together on their way to set. There are going to be stories circulating, and you have to brace yourself for this.'”

"I didn’t think it would bother me. I’ve been in this business a while now and I had seen Chris star alongside other beautiful women, like Aubrey Plaza and Bryce Dallas Howard."

Anna, who is currently promoting her book, shares a five-year-old son with Chris.
