Walking, talking, child-murdering human garbage heap George Zimmerman was arrested (again!) late last night in Lake Mary, Florida, for aggravated assault in a domestic violence case. According to Zimmerman’s attorney, he is accused of hurling a wine bottle at his girlfriend [Reminder: And I'm still single.]. The judge ordered him to surrender all of his firearms and to not have any contact with the victim or travel to Volusia County, where she lives, before releasing him on a $5000 bond.Zimmerman, of course, is the self-appointed “neighborhood watch” patrolman who shot and killed unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012, a crime for which he was acquitted in 2013. Since then, Zimmerman has been in trouble with the law multiple times, including for domestic violence and brandishing a firearm. He’s a danger to society and should have been locked up long ago.

Ray Rice is now allowed to play football in the NFL should anyone choose to have him. And if you, like me, are wondering where exactly to direct your outrage, look squarely at Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL.
For nearly 10 months, we’ve watched Goodell bungle Rice’s suspension and appeal. In August he admitted he “didn’t get it right” when it came to handling the case. On Friday we got to see Goodell fumble the ball again, this time in slow motion, when ex-U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones released a scathing 17-page report on how the NFL handled the Rice debacle. In one fell swoop, Jones lifted Rice’s indefinite ban from the NFL and allowed him to sign as a free agent.
According to Jones’ report, when Rice explained to Goodell and the NFL what happened in the elevator of an Atlantic City Casino during his disciplinary hearing in June, he described the scene shown in the security camera video. That video was available to the NFL, they just never asked to see it. Keep reading »
A new freestyle rap video released by Eminem to promote his upcoming compilation album Shady XV has sparked controversy over lyrics that reference domestic violence and punching singer Lana Del Rey in the face.
“I may fight for gay rights, especially if the dyke is more of a knockout that Janay Rice/Play nice? Bitch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice,” the 42-year-old performer raps, “like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance”—a reference to the American footballer recently caught on camera punching his partner in the face in an elevator.
The lyrics also touch on numerous other celebrities, including Anderson Cooper, Jay Z, and Kate Hudson. Keep reading »
I am not the slightest bit surprised that some bag of dicks decided it would be totally hilarious and clever to dress up as Ray Rice for Halloween. And not just any Ray Rice, mind you — but Ray Rice, domestic abuser, complete with a blow-up doll pinned to the ground like Rice’s then-fiance (now wife) Janay Rice. The Reddit user who posted the photo has since deleted his account, but his caption reads: “Ladies were falling for my friends Ray Rice costume.” Speaking of ladies … LADIES, take a good, long, hard look at this chump’s face, commit it to memory, and then avoid at all costs.

War Machine, or Jonathon Koppenhaver — the MMA fighter who beat his ex-girlfriend/model/porn star Christy Mack within inches of her life in August this year — tried to commit suicide by hanging in his jail cell last week. TMZ obtained a copy of the suicide note he left, and MMANews transcribed it (h/t Gawker for the links).
In the note, Koppenhaver claims that “society has killed men.” Robyn Pennacchia at Death and Taxes points out that what constitutes “men,” to Koppenhaver, is rapists: He claimed on Twitter that he raped Mack, and that “Real men rape.” The feminist bitch inside me is itching to say this, so I’ll just give it air: Men’s Rights Activists or Red Pill-ers, I would never claim that “real” men rape, or that all men are rapists, or that any sexual act with a man is by default rape, or that all men want to rape, or that all men should rape. No, that’s one of your own making that claim. If you want to hate feminists because you perceive us as stereotyping men as rapists, go ahead and hate yourselves, too. Keep reading »
