Reproductive Orgs: Kanye West is Mistaking Plan B With Abortion

Published

on

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Kanye West has his facts messed up when it comes to Plan B and abortion — two things he mistakenly thinks go hand in hand.

A rep for Foundation Consumer Healthcare — the pharma company that makes the Plan B One-Step contraceptive — tells TMZ that their pill is in no way connected to the process of abortion … even though Ye appeared to conflate the topics.

You’ll recall … Kanye mentioned Plan B and abortion in a rant he went on about the Democratic party, which he thinks has brainwashed African-Americans into killing babies.

That is simply NOT the case though, when it comes to Plan B … so says FCH. The company tells us plainly, “Plan B emergency contraception is a safe and effective backup option when used as directed after unprotected sex or birth control failure.” Hmmm … go on.

They add, “Plan B helps prevent pregnancy before it starts by delaying ovulation. Plan B is not an abortion pill – it will not harm an existing pregnancy and it will not be effective if a woman is already pregnant.” In short, it ain’t an abortion pill, despite misconceptions.

A rep for Planned Parenthood sounded off as well, saying black women have actually had a leading role in the fight for abortion access, sex education and reproductive health rights.

The spokesperson adds, “As Black women, we make our own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and want and deserve to have access to the best medical care available. Misinformation like this is meant to shame us and keep us from making our own health care decisions.

Black women want and deserve support and access to the full range of reproductive health care, but this persistent lie is threatening our ability to obtain it.”

Glad we all learned something today!

Stormy Daniels’ 2018 Ohio Strip Club Arrest Gets 2 Cops Fired

Published

on

By

COLUMBUS, OH (TMZ) — Two police officers who busted Stormy Daniels during her 2018 strip club gig in Ohio are outta work for what police now admit was a bogus arrest.

The Columbus Police Department announced its decision Thursday after it found officers Steven Rosser and Whitney Lancaster violated rules when they arrested Stormy on 3 counts of illegal sexually oriented activity. The department also said the officers lied during an internal investigation about the basis for their sting operation.

As you might remember, Columbus PD hauled in Stormy for motorboating an undercover cop . Ohio has strict laws on touching strippers. Stormy’s attorney at the time, Michael Avenatti , accused officers of setting her up and alleged the arrest was politically motivated — she’d gone public about her alleged affair with Donald Trump .

City officials ultimately determined Ohio’s no touching law should have only applied to regular performers and NOT Stormy, a guest performer.

Stormy’s charges were dropped within 24 hours, but she later sued the department and won a $450,000 settlement. The controversy also resulted in the police department disbanding its controversial vice squad following a federal corruption investigation.

The federal probe determined Rosser lied about the purpose of the strip club sting … saying he was searching for an underage stripper. The search never happened, and instead, they arrested Stormy. Two other officers were suspended for the arrest.

DaBaby Assaults Bev Hills Hotel Worker/Fan Asking for Pic

DaBaby Assaults Hotel Worker

BEVERLY HILLS (TMZ) — DaBaby likes his fans, but only so much, because when they ask for too much he might attack.

Check out the video … from a security cam at a Bev Hills hotel. We’re told the guy in the video is a hotel employee who followed DaBaby outside the lobby to get a pic. We’re told DaBaby turned the guy down, so he walked back in the lobby.

That’s when DaBaby and crew decided to administer some western justice, slamming the guy against the wall and roughing him up. The incident, which went down December 19, was a day after DaBaby performed at the Shrine.

DaBaby and crew left the hotel without further incident. Cops were not called.

It’s not DaBaby’s first run-in with fans. Last year he attacked a fan outside Louis Vuitton store in North Carolina. Also last year, DaBaby and crew beat a fan outside a concert in Massachusetts after the guy asked for a pic.

DaBaby’s attorney, Michael Heiskell, tells TMZ … “Any actions taken by DaBaby were likely in self defense based upon his recall of the events and until the video is thoroughly reviewed we have no further comment at this time.”

The incident, which went down December 19, was a day after DaBaby performed at the Shrine. DaBaby and crew left the hotel without further incident. Cops were not called. It’s not DaBaby’s first run-in with fans.

DaBaby is setting the record straight on why he pushed the hotel employee, and he says it’s because the guy was allegedly harassing him while he was in the company of his young daughter.

HOLLYWOOD (Page Six) — What a difference a year makes.

Lizzo was a rising new artist on Atlantic’s roster at last year’s Warner Music Group’s Grammy bash. But this go-round, the superstar headlined the party, with A-listers like Naomi Campbell, Big Freedia, Wiz Khalifa, Rob Gronkowski, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton waiting for the “Good as Hell” singer to hit the stage at the Hollywood Athletic Club on Thursday. Guests could smell Khalifa from a mile away as he entered smoking marijuana.

Nightlife connoisseur and photographer Jeremy Kost, known for his Polaroids of male model derrières, even dusted off his lens for the occasion.

“I never bring my camera to events like this. It’s like a once-in-a-lifetime thing. I am not leaving this spot,” a giddy Kost said as he […]
