Kim Kardashian debuts ‘Justice Project’ trailer, addresses Mass Incarceration
“There are millions of people impacted by this broken justice system, and I wanted to put faces to these numbers and statistics. There are a lot of people who deserve a second chance, but many do not have the resources to make it happen.” – Kim Kardashian West
American media personality Kim Kardashian West, who always wanted to become a lawyer, on Monday shared the trailer of her upcoming documentary ‘The Justice Project’.
Kardashian broke the news via Instagram to her 100m followers that her upcoming documentary will be coming out on April 5 on Oxygen.
The ‘Keeping up with the Kardashian’ star on Instagram wrote, “The official trailer for my new documentary is here! Criminal justice reform is something that’s so important to me, and I can’t wait to share these stories with all of you. #KKWTheJusticeProject premieres Sunday, April 5 at 7/6c on @Oxygen.”
The two-hour-long documentary is set to go inside four cases, including one victim of sex trafficking and a woman who murdered a family member for sexually assaulting her. All the four believed that they received unfair sentences and two of them end up being released.
See the reality star’s official press statement below:
“I partnered with Oxygen to do the ‘Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project’ documentary because there are millions of people impacted by this broken justice system, and I wanted to put faces to these numbers and statistics. There are a lot of people who deserve a second chance, but many do not have the resources to make it happen. I want to help elevate these cases to a national level to effect change, and this documentary is an honest depiction of me learning about the system and helping bring tangible results to justice reform.”
Mark Cuban’s Solution to NBA Suspension over Coronavirus
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is making arrangements to financially support the team, employees and arena workers who won’t be able to work due to the NBA’s suspended season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cuban has not provided the specifics or his emergency plan, but he revealed during a press conference on Wednesday that he has “already started the process of having a program in place” to pay workers whose household income is dependent upon NBA game days.
“It’s stunning, but we are where we are,” Cuban said, according to ESPN. “We have to be smart in how we respond. This is people’s lives at stakes. This isn’t about basketball; this isn’t about the Mavericks. This isn’t about when do we start, do we start? Or how do we start? This is a pandemic, a global pandemic where people’s lives are at stake. I’m a lot more worried about my kids and my mom, who is 82 years old — in talking to her and telling her to stay in the house — than when we play in our next game.”
Cuban added that the Mavericks’ program might require employees to do “volunteer work.”
“I reached out … to find out what it would cost to financially support people who aren’t going to be able to come to work.”
Amid the Mavericks 113-97 win over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, league officials learned that Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz had tested positive for COVID-19. The Jazz’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder was subsequently postponed, and shortly after the NBA was suspending play until further notice.
During the Mavericks’ game on Wednesday, sideline cameras captured Cuban’s stunned reaction to the news that the NBA would not play games until further notice.
CNN on-boards Andrew Yang as Political Commentator
Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is joining CNN as a political commentator, the network announced Wednesday.
“I’m excited to join @CNN to help shed light on the election and the candidates’ experiences,” Yang posted via Twitter.
“Learned a lot these past months and am glad to contribute to the public discussion.” He’ll appear on the network in his new capacity later Wednesday, he added.
The tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang suspended his campaign last Tuesday, Feb. 11 in his bid for the White House.
“We’ve accomplished so much together,” Yang said during a speech to supporters in Durham, N.H.
Yang rose from obscurity to become a highly-visible candidate, rallying a coalition of liberal Democrats, libertarians and some disaffected Republicans to form a devoted group of followers known as the Yang Gang.
New York Rapper Pop Smoke Shot and Killed at 20
The budding Brooklyn rap star Pop Smoke (Bashar Barakah Jackson) has reportedly been murdered.
According to TMZ, Pop Smoke was shot and killed early Wednesday morning in what appears to be a home-invasion robbery.
LAPD confirmed the rapper’s death, claiming that two men wearing hoodies and masks broke into Pop Smoke’s Hollywood Hills house around 4:30AM, shooting Pop Smoke multiple times and fleeing the scene on foot.
He was pronounced dead upon arriving at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood.
No suspects have been apprehended or identified at this time, and there is no word on whether the rapper had any connection to the them.
The young emcee rose to fame with his first single, “Welcome to the Party,” which also featured rap heavyweight Nicki Minaj on the remix.
The rapper’s death came just days after he released his anticipated new mixtape, Meet the Woo 2. Pop Smoke was age 20 when he passed.
