NFL Super Bowl Champs, The Philadelphia Eagles, will not be attending a ceremony at the White House because the president uninvited them. According to a statement released by Donald Trump: “They disagree with their president because he insists that they proudly stand for the national anthem.”

A family in Detroit is demanding answers after their mother, Martha Stanley, 59, died in a Wayne County Jail. According to reports, the air conditioning unit broke down. Stanley complained that she could hardly breathe due to the heat. Detroit officials say Stanley died of a cardiac arrest but her son says she had a heart condition and they denied her proper care.

And our girl Issa rae was the first Black host for the CFDA Awards! In addition to looking super fly in her dress, her shade towards Kanye had everyone laughing.
