Brother Nature Was the "Aggressor" in Viral Fight
Over the weekend, social media personality and animal whisperer Kelvin "Brother Nature" Pena was caught on camera getting "jumped" in a pizza shop. However, new surveillance footage shared by the Miami establishment shows that the 21-year-old instigated the fight. When Pena first addressed the situation on Twitter, he claimed that he was the victim.
A new video released by the restaurant, as well as witnesses testimony, make it clear that Pena was actually the one who initiated the fight. The restaurant reported that Pena instigated the fight after he saw that the other patron was videotaping him arguing with restaurant personnel for not allowing him to eat at a table because the eatery was closing in 15 minutes. After the patron refused to give Pena his phone, the fight broke out. (via Popcrush)

Winter is right around the corner, which means people are all of the sudden going to forget how to drive.

Also, 23 percent of people avoid riding with a friend or family member during the winter because they don’t trust their driving.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' Wedding Pictures BANNED from Pinterest
You might not have noticed, but Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' wedding pictures have been banned from Knot Worldwide and Pinterest. The couple tied the knot in 2012 at a venue where The Notebook was filmed in Charleston, South Carolina. Cute right? Until you find out that the wedding took place at the Boone Hall Plantation; a place where years ago African Americans were forced into slavery. A civil rights advocacy group called Color of Change wrote heartfelt letters to The Knot Worldwide and Pinterest explaining why glamorizing plantations sites is insulting to black people. As a result, the two companies decided that it would be best to pull plantation weddings down from their sites all together. (via Cosmo)
Russians BANNED from 2020 Olympics
Russia has been banned from the 2020 Olympics and the World Cup because of cheating. The World Anti Doping Agency just voted to slap Russia with a four-year ban from all major international sporting events because Russian authorities tampered with a laboratory database in an effort to cover up hundreds of potential doping cases involving Russian athletes. Plus, this isn't the first time Russia has been accused of cheating or the first time they've been banned. They also couldn't participate in the 2018 Winter Games because of a doping scandal.

Tasteless or Body Positivity?
Lizzo was trending all day yesterday for all the wrong reasons. She made an appearance at a Lakers game on Sunday and was sitting court side in an outfit that definitely turned some heads. Lizzo wore a black “Notorious B.I.G.” (or was it “L.I.Z.”?) T-shirt dress to LA’s Staples Center, with strategic cutouts exposing her, uh, cheeks, covered in only a thong and fishnet stockings. When her song "Juice" came over the loudspeaker, she stood up and started twerking on the Jumbotron.
As expected the internet had a field day with his one. Some people loving her display of self love, others slamming her for being disrespectful and classless. (via Complex)
