Actress Gina Rodriguez ruffled some feathers, specifically black women after she addressed the Hollywood racial pay gap among women during a recent conversation on Net-A-Porter’s The Big Television Debate.

Rodriguez along Gabrielle Union, Emma Roberts, and Ellen Pompeo opened the conversation, discussing the adversities women face in the workplace. Both Pompeo and Rodriguez admitted to feeling “ashamed” when complaining about pay inequalities, but that ounce of remorse didn’t stop Rodriguez from going on to mention how Latina women are paid less than black women and white women.

“I get so petrified in this space talking about equal pay especially when you look at the intersectional aspect of it, right? Where white women get paid more than black women, black women get paid more than Asian women, Asian women get paid more than Latina women, and it’s like a very scary space to step into,” Rodriguez said during the conversion segment. “Because I always feel like I fail when I speak about it because I can’t help but feel already so gracious to do what I do and I feel like, culturally, I feel like I was raised to just feel so appreciative of getting here.”

Check out below for the full discussion between Rodriguez, Union, Pompeo, and Roberts.

Kevin Hart made his first appearance last night in Los Angeles at the 2019 People’s Choice Awards after a long recovery from a nearly-fatal car crash.

 The American comedian and actor fractured his spine in September of this year. Hart later began intensive physical therapy following the incident. 

On Sunday (Nov. 10) the father of three took to the stage at the ceremony to accept The Comedy Act Of 2019 award.

“First and foremost thank God because I definitely don’t have to be here,” Hart said. “Being that I am, it makes me appreciate life more. It makes me appreciate the things that really matter. I want to thank my wife and my kids. They really stepped up for me.”

 The comedian who attended the event with wife Eniko Parrish, 35, and his daughter Heaven Hart, 14 added:

“I also want to take the time to thank the People’s Choice Awards, just for this. This is amazing. But more importantly, the people, man. You have no idea the effect that you have on us as entertainers. Your energy, your support, it means the world and I truly want to thank you guys for being there for me in my difficult time. This is special. They all are. I do not take them for granted. Thank you so much. God bless everyone in this room. Peace.”

Donald Trump Jr. has publicly displayed his support for Kanye West’s new Christian album, Jesus is King via Twitter while simultaneously firing shots at the “Leftists.”

“Kanye is ‘cracking the culture code,” the politician asserted. “Jesus Is King is the ‘epitome of fearless creativity and “dangerous, unapproved” ideas,” he added.

He then slammed The Democratic Party for silencing “those who are speaking truth.”

Although Mr. West has made previous claims of being a reformed MAGA supporter, leaving politics beneath his tight-knit Yeezy’s. Perhaps, Trump Jr. will persuade the indecisive rapper to join forces with the red hat clan once more.

West, 42, has not yet responded. See the tweet below.
