After getting support from the Philadelphia Eagles during the Super Bowl, another athlete is advocating for the release of the incarcerated rapper.
Slovenian Olympic snowboarder Tit Stante showed support for Meek by writing #FreeMeekMill on his snowboard during the men’s halfpipe qualifiers at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
According to a report released by Oxfam, the disparity between the rich and poor is even more dramatic than previously thought.8 men, the report says, control as much wealth as 3.6 billion people, or close to half the world’s population.
Oxfam cited Forbes’ March 2016 billionaires list to substantiate their claim. In order, the 8 men that control half the world’s wealth are Microsoft founder Bill Gates whose net worth is $75 billion; Amancio Ortega, the Spanish founder of Inditex; Warren Buffett; Carlos Slim Helu; Jeff Bezos of Amazon; Mark Zuckerberg; Oracle’s Larry Ellison; and Michael Bloomberg.
Oxfam warns that this kind of economic inequality will inevitably lead to more drastic and extreme political changes, like the United States’ election of Donald Trump and Britain’s vote to leave the EU.
Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International, said, “It is obscene for so much wealth to be held in the hands of so few when 1 in 10 people survive on less than $2 a day. Inequality is trapping hundreds of millions in poverty; it is fracturing our societies and undermining democracy.”
Kenya Moore gave intruders a dose of reality. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star whipped out a gun on what appeared to be two men and one woman after she spotted them trespassing her home.
“If you come over here, you are going to get a motherf–king cap in your a– … I will shoot and I will ask questions later,” the 45-year-old warned the public in an angry Instagram video following the scare. “These are home invasions, robberies, rapists … What if your children or loved ones were threatened in this way?” Moore wrote in the post.
On Saturday, “The Celebrity Apprentice” star posted two screenshots of the individuals caught on her security camera, further offering a reward for anyone able to track down the suspects.
“Anyone who is bold enough to commit a crime, endanger themselves and others needs to be punished. Please help me identify these people. $1,000 reward.”
Moore included as much details on the incident as she could recollect.
“They climbed over a wall in order to circumvent my security gates and wall being bricked. They were driving a white car. The female was recording on her phone the entire time,” she said.
“Men showing up at your door is an immediate threat. Things could have ended badly and all 3 will be criminally prosecuted.
