Since they love to show f their curves with every chance they get, it was seemingly harmless when Kourtney Kardashian uploaded a photo herself in a thong bikini, flaunting her famous Kardashian booty. While we’re sure he wouldn’t have minded receiving the photo in his DM’s, Kourt’s boyfriend Younes Bendjima seemed to take issue with how revealing the photo was, commenting some shade before deleting his post.

Big Sean's Twitter Hacked By Lame Threatening An Ariana Grande Sex Tape

Even so, Twitter users were quick to memefy the best and the worst the ordeal. One user even summoned a jet skiing Jigga man into the discussion.

Incidentally, bare footage Big Sean reading mean tweets on Jimmy Kimmel was used against him.

Some users took a tad too far when they dragged the bereavement Big Sean’s late grandmother into the discussion. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a Grandmama’s boy. Being a mama’s boy on the other hand doesn’t give you a free pass.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Teases His First Song Without Screaming

Tekashi 6ix9ine is switching up on us. Gone is his Black Metal heritage. In a new clip posted on his Instagram, Tekashi teases new music that is highly treated by pitch control. His trademark screaming is noticeably missing.

Tekashi is effectively asking for 30,000 likes  just to see his new track drop overnight. In fact the post is already nearing the 150K mark, so walk it like you talk it. To top all f, Tekashi believes this song can land him his 6th Platinum single since “Gummo.” We’ll have to wait and see for ourselves.
