    In a video released online on Friday, America's "most racist man" was pranked by a British YouTuber. Niko Omilana, who received 49,628 votes and finished in fifth place in London's 2021 mayoral race, traveled to Harrison, Arkansas — which he described as "America's most racist town." In a local Walmart, Omilana was told that Thomas Robb was the leader of the Ku Klux Klan. Police then asked him to leave the store. Omilana set up an interview with the man by saying it was for "BBC" and asked him to give a shout-out to supporters of the KKK in the United Kingdom who voiced excitement for the interview on social media. The first username was "imap_ussay" which the KKK leader pronounced as "I'm a p*ssy" according to the subtitles provided on the YouTube video. The second username was "byelleem" which was pronounced as "BLM" (Black Lives Matter). The two of them then had a conversation about "BBC," with the KKK leader seeming to believe stood for "British Broadcasting Corporation" while the interviewer suggested it referred to "Big Black C*ck." ...
    Tuesday marks the unofficial international holiday that is Harry Styles’ 28th birthday. The singer, ex-boybander, and budding fashion icon had a packed year at 27—he won a Grammy, joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, launched a cosmetics brand, and brought his Love On Tour shows all over the U.S. But he may just outdo himself at 28, with the upcoming international leg of his tour, a headlining slot at Coachella, and a couple big movie roles, including one in Olivia Wilde’s next film.

    The BBC was ranked third on a “Global Antisemitism Top Ten” list by a major Jewish group, beaten only by Iran and the Hamas terror group. The head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Marvin Hier, told the Daily Mail that “people might be surprised to see the BBC on our list, but the decision to place the BBC at No. 3 came after months of intense debate and discussion.” “We believe the BBC has been guilty of several antisemitic incidents over the past year,” he said. “People might think we would designate neo-Nazi groups on our list, but the BBC is there because when a globally recognized organization allows antisemitism to infiltrate its reporting, it makes it all the more insidious and dangerous,” he said. “People all over the world trust the BBC and rely on it for truthful reporting on world events,” he said.

    Philip Larkin famously wrote that sexual intercourse began in 1963, ‘between the end of the Chatterley ban and the Beatles’ first LP’. It was also when the intimate foibles of an aristocratic ruling class were first exposed to the glare of the mass media and a public ravenous for details. It was the year of Lord Denning’s scathing report on the Profumo affair, in which His Lordship mused on depravity in high places. And 1963 also saw one of the most sensational divorce trials in legal history, featuring the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, a three-strand pearl necklace, robbery, a photograph of a ‘headless man’ and a sexual act too shocking to be described in the newspapers of the day. Now the BBC is set to broadcast a major new dramatisation of the case, starring Claire Foy – who has previously portrayed the Queen in the Netflix series, The Crown – as Margaret, Duchess of Argyll. 1963 also saw one of the most sensational divorce trials in legal history, featuring the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, a three-strand pearl necklace, robbery,...
    The most wanted drug trafficker in Colombia will be extradited to the U.S. after he was taken into custody during a Saturday raid, BBC News reported. Colombia announced Dairo Antonio Úsuga, who led the country’s largest criminal gang, was captured after a joint army, air force and police operation, the BBC reported. Known as Otoniel, he has been on the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s most wanted list for years and had a $5 million bounty on his head placed by officials. Otoniel is accused of importing at least 73 metric tons of cocaine into the U.S. between 2003 and 2014, the BBC reported. He was indicted in the U.S. in 2009 and will face charges concerning cocaine shipments, killing police officers and enlisting children. His gang is believed to have approximately 1,800 members and often recruits from far-right paramilitary groups, the BBC reported. Members have been arrested in Argentina, Brazil, Honduras, Peru and Spain, while the group controls drug smuggling routes as far away as Russia. “In South America, there is no larger cocaine trafficker,” Toby Muse, author of “Kilo:...
    Homosexuality was labeled a mental illness. A new film recounts the fight to remove it. Treasury Secretary Yellen warns debt ceiling battle could spell catastrophe illustration about international women in film “This decade [has] to be about women having each other’s backs,” said Kate Winslet in her Sept. 19 Emmy acceptance speech for HBO’s Mare of Easttown. Around the world, the international film and television industry’s most powerful women had already been hard at work with that mission. Female producers, studio executives and channel bosses are seeing a historic opportunity to capitalize on the seismic changes wrought by the #MeToo movement to push for true inclusion and diversity across the entertainment business. But impressive advances in onscreen representation have not been matched by gains in corporate power structures, where, at least at the very top and particularly outside the United States, it is still very much a man’s world. “A lot of work needs to be done in the C-suite, where serious decisions are made,” notes Mo Abudu, CEO of pan-African TV conglomerate EbonyLife Media. Nevertheless, the glass ceiling...

They came from her family's time at a World War II concentration camp. The woman appeared on the show to discuss three small metal broaches that her family made while they were trapped in the camp during the Holocaust.  In an even more horrifying tale, she then revealed they were part of a ‘show camp’, which was used by Nazis as photo opportunities to show how well they looked after their prisoners.  The three medallions - a watering can, a dog and a shield - all were made and belonged to her mother and grandmother from their days in the Theresienstadt Camp.  6The real value...

    FOOTBALL fans reckon they saw the most cynical foul in history last night. Social media erupted after a blatant red card challenge during Northern Ireland women's clash with Ukraine. 3Natiya Pantsulaya completely blocked off Sarah McFadden's runCredit: BBC 3TV viewers called it the most cynical foul everCredit: BBC Northern Ireland's Sarah McFadden looked to be running clean through on goal in the 87th minute of the Euro 2022 qualifier. But Ukraine midfielder Natiya Pantsulaya was having none of it. Pantsulaya completely stepped across McFadden's line with no intention of playing the ball. And the Ukrainian barely even waited for the referee to brandish a red card before walking off. Replays showed that Pantsulaya was yards ahead of her opponent and could've easily cleared. But the blatant foul left Czech referee Jana Adamkova with no choice but to sent her off. And fans flooded Twitter in disbelief at what they had just seen.

    EASTENDERS' anti-vaccine row has become the most complained about moment from the soap in TEN years. Last week, Karen Taylor proudly announced she was an anti-vaxxer and insisted she "wouldn't have any of that rubbish pumped into me". 6Karen Taylor said she wouldn't have the coronavirus vaccineCredit: BBC The soap favourite was shut down by her horrified neighbours Suki Panesar and Patrick Trueman, who argued the coronavirus jab made them feel "invincible". Now the BBC has received 684 complaints from viewers who felt the storyline was "inappropriate and biased against people who do not want/cannot have the Covid vaccine". The number of people up in arms about the moment makes it the soap's most complained about moment since 2011. But the BBC has fiercely defended the script in a statement, saying: “EastEnders, whilst a fictional drama, has a long tradition of reflecting real life and this exchange aimed to reflect the conversations that some people in Britain are having." 6Patrick beamed as he told Suki he'd received his second dose of the Covid vaccineCredit: BBC Despite hundreds of viewers being...
    U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s senior adviser on ethnic minorities announced his resignation one day after a government-commissioned report found that the country was “no longer” rigged against minorities, numerous sources reported. Samuel Kasumu, Johnson’s most senior black adviser, will leave his position in May, according to the BBC. One day prior, the government’s Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities released a report that concluded Britain is not yet a “post-racial country” but it has made significant strides in removing race-based disparities within education and the economy.  PLAYBOOK SCOOP: Boris Johnson’s most senior Black adviser has resigned No10 aide Samuel Kasumu informed colleagues of his decision to leave yesterday morning — just as the government released its controversial report on race and ethnic disparitieshttps://t.co/8q9CEX7a6Z pic.twitter.com/Y4FDmXlzkg — Alex Wickham (@alexwickham) April 1, 2021 The government denied a link between the report and Kasumu’s departure.

    BBC News isn’t supposed to be enjoyable. Unlike its cable news equivalents in the United States, the BBC doesn’t see the need to pull in viewers and ad money with Inception-rivalling graphical displays or overly charismatic anchors who wind up in partial control of the head of state. That’s why Simon McCoy was unusual. As a BBC News presenter, his theatrical grumpiness and telling-it-like-it-is attitude saw him become the channel’s most reliably viral host. His antics—ranging from holding up a wad of paper instead of a new-fangled iPad, complaining about the weak puns that he’d been asked to read aloud, and his signature weariness about royal baby news—saw him rise to be a twee Twitter sensation. But that came to a crashing halt Thursday, when McCoy announced he was leaving the BBC after 17 years to join GB News. For the uninitiated, GB News is an soon-to-launch network created by a veteran of the Murdoch empire and Britain’s most-feared interviewer Andrew Neil, who has promised that his channel will be a new home for those “left out and unheard” by...
