Ray’s Sketch of Life

Liotta was one of Hollywood’s hardest working stars. While known for several roles, his most memorable role was starring in “Goodfellas” alongside Robert De Niro & Joe Pesci as mobster Henry Hill. Another unforgettable performance was in the iconic film “Field of Dreams” and his portrayal of Shoeless Joe Jackson.

Liotta had countless films under his belt including “Cop Land”, “Corrina Corinna” and “Blow” where he played alongside Johnny Depp as Fred Jung, the father to Depp’s character George Jung. It was this role that was a personal favorite of mine. The heart-wrenching scene produced one of the film’s most memorable quotes.

Ray was a devoted father and husband. He most recently celebrated his engagement to Jacy Nittolo via social media. Liotta leaves her and his daughter Karsen Liotta, who is also following in her father’s footsteps to mourn his loss.

#getSOM via @swag100

56 years of age, Kevin Samuels’ name became a trending topic on Twitter Thursday afternoon. This Friday morning the world of men and women are speaking out their personal thoughts of Samuels and his ways.

According to reports from reliable sources, Samuels, a self-proclaimed relationship guru and image consultant who is best known for his misogynistic comments about black women, in particular, has died.

Samuels’ most recent social media activity, as his Facebook had not been updated since at least Tuesday. His final tweet was posted in April, but that post was linked to his Instagram.

The last video he posted on his YouTube channel was about the aforementioned “Modern Women” and was published at the same time as the Instagram post on Wednesday.

Samuels has gained a following through the way he addresses black women. His image consulting agency works with “men who want to improve their appearance,” according to his website.

He was in the news recently for all the wrong reasons for describing women who are at least 35 and not married as “leftover” women.

“If you made it to 35 and you’re not married, you’re a leftover woman,” Samuels said on her podcast last month. “You’re what’s left over. Men know there’s probably something wrong with you. Whether you want to hear it or not, I’m going there with you. I’m telling you the truth you don’t want to hear.

Men know there’s probably something wrong with you. And here’s the thing: when you were 22 to 25 years old and you didn’t want to settle, you were trying to get the CEO, the pilot, the investment banker, what you were trying to get flew out the door…”

News of his death spread like wildfire on social media where he was trending on Twitter. Many users spoke their minds and shared mixed reviews of Samuels’ passing. See what they had to say below. 

This is a developing story and we will keep you posted with updates. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this time.

Rebel Cannabis Celebrity Ed “NJWeedman” Forchion Calls Instagram His Biggest Foe Since the DEA

Rebel Cannabis Celebrity Ed “NJWeedman” Forchion Calls Instagram His Biggest Foe Since the DEA

Ed “NJWeedman” Forchion’s personal battles with politicians, the police, the courts, the DEA and even the FBI have been widely documented for decades. Now that the formerly embattled marijuana rebel is finally reaping the spoils of his longtime weed legalization war, he has found himself up against a new foe. With a record of activism that spans over 30 years, Forchion is calling out Instagram as his biggest adversary yet.

Miami, FL – Ed “NJWeedman” Forchion’s personal battles with politicians, the police, the courts, the DEA and even the FBI have been widely documented for decades. Now that the formerly embattled marijuana rebel is finally reaping the spoils of his longtime weed legalization war, he has found himself up against a new foe. With a record of activism that spans over 30 years, Forchion is calling out Instagram as his biggest adversary yet. Though verified on Facebook, the cannabis celebrity has been unable to secure the widely acclaimed blue check for his Instagram account. The matter has caused hundreds of fake accounts to launch and imitate him, much to the detriment of his reputation, businesses and most importantly, his safety.

“My life is in danger because of the fake accounts on Instagram. The situation has gotten wildly out of control. There are impersonators out there literally stealing money online with promises of delivering cannabis. My business does not mail or deliver weed and we don’t conduct any business online ever! I’ve actually had angry customers affront me, my children and my staff in person after having been duped out of thousands of dollars by these scammers online. Some of these situations have gotten very scary! These impersonators are allowed to run rampant, while my team and I have tried repeatedly to secure Instagram’s support and attention,” cites Forchion. “A verified account would at least help to mitigate the situation.”

“I am appealing to the public and our thousands of supporters. I’m hoping that they will report any fake accounts and I’m just trying to get the word out that there is only one real “NJWeedman” account on Instagram, with over 23,000 followers,” notes Forchion. “I’m also filing a report about these cyber-crimes with the FBI in the hopes that their National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force (NCIJTF) can take on this case. The scammers have fake websites linked to their IG accounts that are impersonating me and they are making off with tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars from unsuspecting victims!”

Forchion has achieved worldwide notoriety for his longtime battles for legalization. As the former co-owner of NJWeedman’s Joint, a popular cannabis themed restaurant in Trenton, NJ, six years in business, the famed cannabis culprit made astonishing headlines this past year for opening a dispensary across the street from the state capital city hall. His ‘outlawed’ success has garnered him speaking engagements on virtual panels at Stockton and Princeton University, and he has been featured across international and mainstream news including NBC News in New York, ABC-TV Nightline, Cheddar News, VICE News and MSNBC’s “Into America.”

Forchion has expanded his brand to Miami, FL with the opening of a cannabis friendly art and music lounge, The Joint of Miami. His daughters now oversee his Trenton operations, while his son has taken over the Miami business.

Much to his distress however, even The Joint of Miami business account on Instagram has been hacked and shut down, with imposter accounts now posing as the actual operation. The original account @thejointofmiami, which was linked to major advertisements and publicity, is now replaced by several fake accounts that are compromising the brand’s integrity.

“I know everyone has issues with social media. I happen to love social media. It has given me a voice and a presence that has literally fueled my activism, brand and business ventures. But now, the fake accounts situation has spiraled out of control. I’ve got 99 problems and Instagram is all of them!” adds Forchion. “Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, if you are reading this, or any of your team, – ‘HELP!’ – Can I get verified on Instagram??? Please get me back my @jointofmiami account and delete the fake ones. In fact, we can discuss the matter over a bowl on me!”

CARDI ON TRIAL FOR COOTIES

For the last 2 years, Bronx Queen, Cardi B has been at legal battle with Youtube personality, Tasha K (UnwinewithTashaK). The story goes, Tasha, on several occasions, cites Cardi as being a prostitute with STDs who abuses drugs. Now, this is not the first time someone attempts to slash, slander, or cancel CARDI B – but she’s made it clear that her brand was built to protect her from a trial. Does that leave any room for Cardi to rightfully deserve to pay a multi million dollar lawsuit?

Let’s Go To The Facts…

Tasha K & CARDI B trial via @unwinewithtashak

Tasha K. Is Saying That?

If you don’t know who Tasha is – it’s okay we don’t really care. Here on the internet she’s known as “the woman with fake gossip and cheap wine”. Flattering. The “Press” rapper’s lawyers are saying that sis just did this for clout. The YouTube personality starting circulating videos and rumors about Belcalis around the end of 2018. Following the very beginning of 2019, the rapper filed a lawsuit for defamation against all claims. Cardi? A prostitute? Mind you, we don’t slut shame around here but she did become a stripper so we can’t even shocked. Drug abuser? How about mind your business because if I put you in a room with 10 people, I bet at least 5 of them smoke way more than science suggests. This STD is the real debate.

Emergency Card Valid

In response to Cardi B filing her suit, Tasha K. filed a counter-lawsuit on the basis of slander (girl, please)! She claimed that Blood gang affiliates were sent to her house by the rapper to threaten her at her Atlanta home, however that $3 million claim has been dismissed due to lack of evidence. Both parties were scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 9th of this year. Nevertheless, that didn’t happen because Cardi had to tend to a family emergency and the judge approved.

The Medical Records Determine

Though case was postponed, it was not before the judge declared that the Center for Women Pelvic Health at UCLA needs to produce “any and all medical records within [their] possession related sole to the the testing for herpes and HPV for Belcalis…” The new trial date is set for January 5th, 2022. Tasha tries it every once in while with her ridiculousness. But, so far only wins for Cardi on these unbased claims.
