    Retail giant Macy's is under fire after calling the Zeta Phi Beta Centennial Steppers a “diverse dance group” in a Thanksgiving Day tweet.  Zeta Phi Beta, founded at Howard University in 1920, was one of the many performing groups at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this year. MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE WILL GO ON WITHOUT LIVE AUDIENCE "What's that sound, you ask? Why it's the diverse dance group, Zeta Phi Beta Steppers!" Macy's exclaimed in a now-deleted tweet. "Performing a special routine they put together to help us celebrate this unprecedented year." The tweet prompted a response from MSNBC's "The ReidOut" host Joy Reid who explained that the Centennial Steppers are "not a 'dance group.'" "Zeta Phi Beta is a Black sorority founded at Howard U in 1920 and part of the Divine Nine," she said. The Divine Nine is a coalition of nine Black sororities and fraternities that make up the National Pan-Hellenic Council. Social media users called Macy's description "reductive" and asserted that Macy's had used the Centennial Steppers.  Pedestrians walk past black curtains along 34th Street meant to block the view of a pre-taping of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The balloons were in the sky and the marching bands took to the streets for the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, but coronavirus restrictions meant it was without the throngs of people usually scrambling for a view. Instead of the usual path through Manhattan, this year's parade was kept to the area in front of Macy's flagship store and aimed at a television audience instead of live crowds. There were some familiar balloon faces, of course, including Snoopy, Ronald McDonald, and SpongeBob SquarePants. But the bigger balloons were missing the numerous handlers who would normally be walking underneath and holding the ropes. This year, they were attached to vehicles that kept them moving and decreased the number of people needed. A number of entertainers performed, including Pentatonix, Keke Palmer and Sofia Carson, and a slew of Broadway shows were represented in taped performances from their casts.

    A slew of spectators watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from home didn’t seem to have much to be grateful for this year. Keyboard critics roasted the NBC broadcast, including various acts, lip-syncing performers and everything from the Rockettes not doing their legendary kicks to some unusual balloons. “The broadcast is absolute garbage. I guess it’s to be expected in 2020,” griped one viewer on Twitter. Some were angered by the coronavirus restrictions that curtailed the annual event, noting their displeasure at seeing performers wearing masks. “These performers waving on these floats as if they have a physical audience is why I have trust issues. Who are you waving to?” one person wondered. When it came to the acts, a rendition from the cast of the Broadway musical “Jagged Little Pill,” based on Alanis Morissette’s 1995 album, appeared to hit all the wrong notes. “I have a lot of thoughts about Jagged Little Pill. None of them are good,” one user wrote. Another person argued that “the ‘Jagged Little Pill’ musical is like adding raisins to potato salad or...

    The determined Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade fans who thought they could avoid the throngs of spectators this year were left bitterly disappointed — and wish they just stayed at home. A small crowd of revelers braved the drizzle and an air-tight ring of NYPD barricades to try to watch the 94th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in person Thursday — but say they made a huge mistake. “It would have been better off watching this on TV,” complained one of the few live spectators, Julia Korzah, 34, who lives in the Herald Square area. “All I can see is the top of the Empire State building,” she griped as she stood behind a metal barricade with her boyfriend at the corner of 34th Street and Eighth Avenue. Last year, more than 3.5 million eager parade-watchers lined the 2.5-mile route from the Upper West Side to Herald Square. But to keep people safe amid the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s parade was a deeply compressed made-for-TV live event — stretching just one block, in front of the iconic department store’s Herald Square headquarters....

    The show must go on.  This year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City will take place but not as we know it. The characteristic crowds of people who line the streets to catch a glimpse of the parade will be missing because of the coronavirus pandemic, organizers said in a statement on Wednesday.  Spectators of the annual event will have to view the parade on television.  NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker will host Thursday’s event, which is scheduled for broadcast from 9 a.m. until noon in all time zones across the United States.  Macy’s also plans to restrict the parade to its storefront on 34th Street in New York City, cutting out its signature 4-kilometer route.
