The fire began at 3:15 AM Friday. The train was ablaze as it pulled into the station at West 110th Street and Lenox Avenue. Authorities expect foul play as evidence at the scene points to the fire being intentionally set. Authorities suspect the hypothetical arsonist to be involved in two separate fires at subway stations from earlier that morning.

17 people, five whom are firefighters, were injured. 36-year-old train operator Garrett Goble has been pronounced dead. 

“Absolutely heartbroken to share the news that one our New York City Transit family members passed away as a result an incident this morning,” Interim New York City Transit president Sarah Feinberg told CBS Local. “We are devastated by this. This is a hard moment for New York City Transit. A devastating incident. Our hearts and prayers are with our families, with our workforce, and with the family and loved ones our family member who has passed away… This is another horrific moment for our family.”

The MTA has announced a $50,000 reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest.

“I state facts. Yeah, I’m saying niggas’ names. Yeah, 21, all y’all niggas some bitches. What’s up? On God,” Chops says in a video on his social media. “And I’m in Atlanta. And 21, we live in the same area. Tell the people that. We live in the same fucking area. We go to the same Walmart, nigga. What’s up, nigga. Let the people know that. “

He continued, “The reason you don’t walk around with no jewelry. Let them know that. With yo’ bitch ass. You a bitch. And I walk around with all my jewelry on. And my shit real. Fuck wrong with you?” 

Chop dissed Meek Mill earlier this week, calling him scary: “That boy really scary like that though.” 

Mill responded on Twitter saying, “It’s obvious chop having some mental issues. Y’all be gassing stuff so much y’all just gone ignore it! I been getting beats from him for years hope he get well.”

Chop has also called out Lil Wayne, French Montana and Cassidy recently. Perhaps this self-isolation is boring enough to provoke Chop.

21 Savage has yet to respond.

Kourtney Kardashian’s Son Mason Gets TikTok After She Deletes His IG

Kourtney Kardashian’s oldest child, Mason Disick, went ahead and made himself a TikTok account after his mom removed him from Instagram for spilling the real tea about his aunt, Kylie Jenner, and her baby daddy, Travis Scott, over Instagram live recently. It’s true that kids say the dardnest things, and more ten than not, they’re telling the truth. That’s why it was such a big deal when Kourtney Kardashian’s 10-year-old son, Mason, answered a KarJenner fan’s question about his youngest aunt, Kylie Jenner, and her baby daddy and rumoured on-again boyfriend, Travis Scott. The user asked Mason if Kylie and Travis were actually back together, something that the famous co-parents have seemingly been leading the public to believe. However, Mason flat-out denied it, exposing some internal secrets within the reality show family. After the clip him shutting down the Kylie/Travis rumours went viral, Kourtney deleted Mason’s Instagram account altogether.

Kourtney revealed on her own IG live stream that she and Mason’s dad, Scott Disick, decided to deactivate his account because they felt he was too young to be on social media. However, their point didn’t exactly sink into Mason’s brain, as he has now decided to join a different social media app: TikTok. 

The oldest member the new generation Kardashians bragged that he “went viral” and complained that he “would have had 2.7 million] followers] by now if I kept it up.” He also responded to a few questions from fans about his famous family, revealing that he hasn’t seen his cousin, Stormi, in awhile “because corona.” However, it looks like his parents have now taken control this account, too, and promptly deleted it, as well. Both TikTok and Instagram have an age restriction 13 years or older, so Mason is technically not allowed to be on those apps anyway. Maybe he’ll sneak his way onto Twitter next.

Nearby, the National Guard, in Rhode Island, is pulling over any New York plates and enforcing a two-week quarantine travelers who plan to stay in the state. The National Guard is also going door-to-door to enforce the quarantine.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo hopes New Yorkers will not have to avoid any quarantine, telling reporters, “I don’t know how that could be legally enforceable. … Not even understanding what it is, I don’t like the sound it.”

Donovan Mitchell and his teammate, Rudy Gobert, both ended up catching the Coronavirus that has been making its way throughout the globe over the past few months. The pandemic is about to reach its peak but for Gobert and Mitchell, the worst is finally over. They were recently told that they have been cleared the virus and will be able to continue their lives as normal.

Mitchell understands just how bad this virus can be. With this in mind, he has decided to educate people and yesterday, he even took to his Twitter account where he had a serious message for everyone at home who is going through quarantine. As he said, it’s important to stay the course because even if you don’t feel sick, you could still be carrying the virus.

Due to COVID-19, the entire NBA season has been put on pause and won’t resume until it is safe to get into large gatherings again. If you’re sad that the NBA is gone and want it back sooner rather than later, you should live by Mitchell’s words wisdom.

Cardi B Calls For "Tiger King" Joe Exotic’s Freedom

It seems like everyone has been tuning into Netflix’s Tiger King this week. Viewers have been hashing out their thoughts surrounding the incarcerated Joe Exotic ever since Netflix debuted the docuseries recently. Joe Exotic’s found some pretty famous supporters, as well, including Cardi B.

Though she admitted on Thursday that she was lost in the second episode because she was having , she clearly caught up on all the details. “Carol you think you slick bitch,” she wrote on Twitter. She later retweeted a fan meme that read, “Carole Baskins fed her husband to the tigers.” That’s been a running theory throughout the series that Carole has denied.

She even went as far as vowing to launch a GoFundMe in his honor. “Bout to start a gundme account for Joe .He shall be free,” she wrote. Chances are she’s joking, though, but she clearly got invested in the series. 

Joe Exotic has filed a $94M lawsuit against the federal government claiming that they’ve discriminated against and conspired against him to have him locked up.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Reveals Who Annoys Him The Most

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been proving himself to be one the best players in the entire NBA and prior to the NBA hiatus, he was in the discussion to win his second-straight NBA MVP award. Now, he spends most his time on IG Live where he answers fan questions. Recently, Giannis was talking about who he hatest to play in front the most. Giannis even mentioned the Toronto Raptors and how Drake is pretty up there. However, Giannis immediately retracted his Drake statement and claimed that Raptors Superfan Nav is the one who annoys him the most because the way he is constantly talking trash.

Nav saw the clip Giannis’ admission and immediately took to Twitter where he noted that everything he says is all fun and games. The superfan even fered Giannis a meal for the next time he comes to Toronto.

Hahaha @Giannis_An34 love you like family before and after the game but during those 48 minutes I have to do whatever it takes to give my boys the edge! You have to know when you visit Toronto you get the 1-2 punch @Drake then the superfan 🙂 dinner on me next time #staysafe,” Nav wrote.

Clearly, these two have a friendly rivalry that is all in good fun. For Nav, the rivalry has been just a tad one-sided so far. Perhaps that will change when the Bucks beat the Raptors in a playf series.

Floyd Mayweather Schools Antonio Brown On Not Paying Taxes

Floyd Mayweather is one the most legendary boxers all time and has made millions dollars throughout his career. In fact, Mayweather’s fights can make him upwards hundreds millions dollars simply because his name draws a massive crowd. When you make a lot money, the taxman frequently comes knocking at your door. If you don’t pay these taxes, the IRS could come after you which would end up being a pretty scary sight.

Mayweather was recently on Instagram live with Antonio Brown and in the middle their conversation, Mayweather lamented about the concept taxes and how we have no clue where our hard-earned money goes. In fact, Mayweather claims there is no law that says we need to pay taxes. Brown seemed to agree with this notion although if they went to google, they would understand that there are harsh penalties for not paying taxes, including jail time.

When you’re as rich as Brown or Mayweather, paying your taxes shouldn’t be that big an issue although, for them, it seems like a really big hassle. As for us common folk, we will have to continue paying our taxes without raising a single finger to the powers that be.

As they say, such is life.

Kyrie Irving Shares Fond Memories Of Kobe Bryant

Kyrie Irving was a huge fan Kobe Bryant growing up and when he entered the league, the Los Angeles Lakers legend welcomed him with open arms. They had a solid relationship for years which is why Irving was so distraught when Kobe tragically passed away in a helicopter crash back in January. Since Kobe’s death, multiple players have shared some their favorite stories regarding the legend. Recently, Irving did the exact same thing during an Instagram live session.

Irving spoke about a particular moment in which Kobe dropped 42 on him. What made the game so special was an instance in which Kobe blocked Kyrie and then got the bucket going the other way.

Per Kyrie:

“Kobe had 42 points that game and he guaranteed that he was gonna give us 40. So I get it at the top the key, I hear the crowd and the crowd was like; they;re all erupting silently. They’re like: ‘oh!!’ and everybody starts clapping like: ‘oh yeah!’ and it’s at the top the key. Now what does that remind you ?

Back in the city, back in Jersey, when you get in that moment, this is your time. So I get at the top the key and I make a move, he stutters for a minute and I spin. When I spun, this dude was waiting for that and he punched that shit. He punched it, he punched it bro.”

Irving’s story is yet another example just how great the Black Mamba was. Needless to say, this entire NBA season is dedicated to Kobe.

2 Chainz Says ‘ColleGrove 2’ with Lil Wayne Is Dropping This Year

Collegrove 2 is coming.

2 Chainz confirmed that a sequel to his 2016 collaborative album with Lil Wayne will arrive this year. During an Instagram Live stream with fans on Thursday, the Atlanta rapper made the big announcement.

“I’m also dropping ColleGrove 2 this year,” he told his followers. Young Money president Mack Maine retweeted the video and captioned it with the eyes emoji.

A sequel to ColleGrove has been teased for years. Back in April 2016, Tity Boi said “there’s plenty” more music on the way, while Lil Wayne said it was “already done.” In 2018, 2 Chainz once again hinted at a second installment. “ME AND MY BROTHA GOTTA ANOTHER 1 ON THE WAY,” he wrote.

ColleGrove debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 upon its release in March 2016. It was originally billed as a collaborative project between 2 Chainz and Wayne, but 2 Chainz was credited as the primary artist due to Weezy’s label issues at the time.

Meanwhile, 2 Chainz says he has more “secret surprises” in store for fans this year. Last month, he released his DJ Spinz-produced single “NO TV” as well as No Face No Case, the debut compilation from his T.R.U. collective.

Chrissy Teigen Resorts To Desperate Measures To Get Lettuce During Pandemic

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were so desperate for romaine lettuce following the panic shopping caused by the coronavirus outbreak, that she fered to bake a loaf homemade banana bread for anyone with the desired goods. As the coronavirus pandemic causes most the world to stay indoors as much as they can, plenty people have taken to stocking up their food supply. It’s unknown at the moment how long this situation will last, particularly in the United States where Chrissy and her family live, since the country just surpassed both China and Italy for the highest total amount  confirmed cases COVID-19. As a result the uncertainty and subsequent panic that the pandemic has caused, many grocery store shelves have been cleared out, causing shortages tons necessities, including romaine lettuce, apparently.

Among her many skills like modelling, hosting television shows, and being heavily “online,” Chrissy fancies herself quite the awesome chef, even curating her own cookbook. However, while she and her husband, John Legend, and their two young children, Luna and Miles, are stuck in quarantine, Chrissy is finding herself without some the key ingredients to make her meals. The Internet personality tweeted out on Monday fering anyone who has romaine lettuce a loaf homemade banana bread in exchange, specifying that the trade would be made “6 feet apart.”

Lucky for Chrissy, Youtube star Chris Klemens responded with a selfie posing with his 3-pack romaine lettuce, letting her know that he was located in the Studio City neighbourhood Los Angeles.

Chrissy insisted that he send her some more “timely” pro to ensure that the photo wasn’t old. Chris replied with a video indicating the current date at the time, and Chrissy was reassured enough to agree to the trade. She told him she’d meet him the following afternoon.

Chrissy proceeded to provide updates for Chris on the state his banana bread, before realizing she only had enough ingredients to make one loaf. She asked if he’d accept half a banana bread along with a slice pie, since John insisted she keep the other half the loaf for him. Chris accepted the alternate fer, laughing about fighting with John Legend over banana bread.

Chrissy proceeded to document her banana-bread-baking process, including mouth-watering clips the delicious baked good.

Chris made a “get this bread” pun, and the two them decided on a time to meet while they continued to negotiate the deal.

We then watched as Chrissy and John drove to meet Chris and his roommate in the parking lot a church. She revealed that she had thrown in an extra slice pie and a bottle wine, all for the three-pack lettuce. 

The exchange then took place, using a toy car likely belonging to Luna or Miles to trade the goods. Not to worry, Chris brought a measuring tape to ensure that they were 6 feet apart from each other at all times. Watch the (distant) interaction take place.

During these dark times, it’s nice to be able to laugh at huge celebrities like Chrissy and John resorting to trading baked goods for vegetables using a children’s car.

Shaq Displays Dad-Like Dance Moves Alongside His Sons

Let’s face it, this quarantine has provided very little sports content. Athletes and analysts are bored out their minds as there is simply nothing to do. Leagues are on pause and seasons are in a state purgatory. No one knows what’s going to come next and unfortunately, it’s not looking too good for anyone. Regardless, we are all in this together and now that we have some extra time with our families, many are taking advantage.

One those people is none other than NBA legend, Shaq. The former superstar has been spending time at home with his sons, Shaqir and Shareef. Shaqir has his very own TikTok and has been getting his dad to partake in the festivities. In the video below, Shaq brings the dad vibes as he tries to emulate the dance moves his children. While his moves leave a lot to be desired, you can’t help but commend him for trying.

With the NBA season destined to be on pause until the late summer, it will be interesting to see what Shaq and other analysts begin to do. Perhaps he will start doing breakdowns old games he was a part . If that’s the case, his social media will certainly be must-watch material.

In the meantime though, boredom has prevailed.
