‘Wendy Williams Show And CBS Reportedly Sued By Staples Employee After Being Fired For Racism Claims

Earlier this year, Sherri Shepherd accused a Santa Monica Staples store of racial profiling…

sherrieshepherdJust got cursed out by a cashier @staples at 4641 Santa Monica Blvd in LA. My girlfriend @kimrtavares & I were there to get supplies for a seminar when Kim asked where was their restroom & we were told they were broken and we needed t go to @riteaid – Kim walked over to #RiteAid but their bathroom was in use so she came back to #Staples. Another employee gave us the combination to their #bathroom which worked fine. When questions The manager (Edgar) said the cashier Janice Reyes May have said it bc the bathrooms needed to be cleaned. They were clean and working bc I used it. When I questioned Miss Reyes on why she said that at first she wouldn’t answer and then said “we are told to tell people if they don’t buy they can’t use our bathroom…” Click Here if you missed that…

Fast Forward…

Sherri Shepherd’s rant about being racially profiled got a Staples store employee fired, according to the employee, who’s now suing media outlets that covered the story … but not Sherri.

According to TMZ reports, Janice Reyes is suing “The Wendy Williams Show” and CBS Television after they aired the video Sherri posted back in February — she slammed Reyes as a racist for refusing to let her and a friend use the Hollywood store’s restroom.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Reyes says she got canned 5 days after Sherri’s post. Reyes says her supervisor told her the bathrooms were getting fixed, and instructed her to keep customers away. She says that’s the only reason she stopped Sherri.

Reyes claims Shepherd and her friend confronted her while ringing them up … calling her a liar and accusing her of racism. Reyes admits she said, “I’m not taking this s***” and walked away.

Reyes says she was told she was getting fired for swearing, but she thinks the real reason was Sherri accusing her of racism.

She’s suing for loss of wages and other damages. She’s suing CBS because it aired “Inside Edition” … which also covered the story.

In similar news, Stevie J and Faith Evans close friends and family are not too thrilled about the wedding news. Family sources on both sides tell TMZ that they were never given a heads-up that marriage was even a possibility.

Sources say there are a lot of hurt feelings among those close to the couple … especially their kids. We’re told Faith’s son, CJ Wallace — her child with Biggie Smalls — is especially upset … because he’s also Stevie’s godson.

Family sources on Faith’s side tell us … Faith told them Stevie J went to her Tuesday and told her they needed to get married that day. The sources think Stevie J knew if Faith started telling friends and family she was marrying him, they would talk her out of it.

And, get this … friends and family members were blowing up Faith’s phone Wednesday, asking her why she did it. She responded by sending them a song she just recorded with Stevie J called, “A Minute” with the explanation … it only took a minute to fall in love.

Mayor Kenney: ‘I love Jay-Z’ and want to keep Made in America in Philly

Yesterday a representative for the Mayor of Philadelphia announced this would be the last year for Jay-Z’s Made in America Music Festival on the Ben Franklin Parkway.

Jay-Z penned open letter to address Made in America music festival being moved from Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Click Here if you missed that.

Here’s an update…..

Toward the end of Mayor Kenny’s press conference on the soda tax Wednesday afternoon. Kenney responded to Jay-Z and the plan to move the concert.

“First of all I love Jay-Z,” Kenney said. “I think he’s extremely talented. He’s very philanthropic.”

While Kenney said he loves the concert and wants to keep it in Philadelphia, he also said having it on the parkway created some “operational difficulties” due to the amount of time it takes to set up the festival and take it down.

“We were in conversation with the people we thought were communicating that to Roc Nation and to Jay-Z,” Kenney said. “Apparently they weren’t.”

According to Kenney, the Parkway council commissioned a study that reported on the stress on the infrastructure of the Parkway. They then decided to move the Made in America Festival and sent a Request for Proposals (RFP) to Roc Nation to find another location for 2019, according to Kenney

“Since they responded to the RFP and had no complaints we thought that it was okay to look around for some other prominent sites in the city where we could do it,” Kenney said.

Kenney said they’re looking at four or five possible locations in the city for the festival next year though he didn’t specify where.

“We are in discussion with the right people now and I’m confident we will work everything out,” he said. “We want to keep the concert. We want to maintain a good relationship with Roc Nation and we’re going to work hard to do that.” 

Jay-Z, whose Roc Nation along with Live Nation, put on the concert said they would discuss future options and “handle accordingly.

Black Washington University Students Falsely Accused of “Dine and Dash” At IHOP

Image result for ihop

The Clayton Police Department has issued an apology after its police officers falsely accused 10 Washington University students of not paying for their meal at an IHOP restaurant the night of July 7, reports CBS St. Louis affiliate KMOV-TV. The black incoming freshmen had just left the eatery when they were stopped by police, school officials confirmed.

Clayton police officers then made the students walk back to the restaurant, despite being shown some receipts proving the students had paid for the meals.

After officers escorted the students back to the IHOP, the manager said the students weren’t the suspects.

The manager had contacted police to report that a $60 tab wasn’t paid by a group of black customers. That’s the procedure called for by IHOP policy.

A short time later, police spotted the group of teens. Police say they were stopped because they were the only ones nearby with IHOP bags in hand and were black.

The 10, who were on campus as part of a summer program, told KMOV-TV they felt that they’d been racially profiled.

Were they? “”I don’t know how you can take that into account,” Clayton Police Chief Kevin Murphy told KMOV-TV.

The school issued a statement expressing disappointment over the false accusations.

“The fact that these students, all of whom are African American, were scared and humiliated is unacceptable to us,” Washington University said in the statement. “We have shared the sentiment with the City of Clayton and have had an opportunity to meet with city leaders to reiterate our concerns.

The Clayton P.D. said the IHOP involved had 45 “dine and dash” calls since January and that “collateral damage” such as the incident involving the students was an “additional cost of this kind of criminal activity.”

The department also said it’s open to ways it can perform better in similar situations.

“Our department has and will continue to study what could have been done better in this and in all incidents where we have complaints,” the Clayton PD said in its statement. “Even without any apparent policy or legal violations, we look for ways to improve and make our officers even more effective in positive interactions.”

An IHOP spokesman told News 4 “discrimination of any kind is not tolerated,” when asked for comment.

Washington University’s Association of Black Students released a statement demanding an apology:

The foundation of our current Association of Black Students (ABS) was birthed from the Association of Black Collegians’ efforts in the late 1960s to shed light on the harassment of Black students at Washington University. Our main goal is not only to support our students as they work towards achieving a degree from Washington University, but also to provide a space where they can be Black and free of harassment, dehumanizing threats, and racial subjugation. The comments of Police Chief Murphy minimize the impact of his officers’ conduct, thus invalidating the experience of those affected. Murphy characterizes this misconduct as a mere inconvenience — this indicates that there is likely a significant failure on his part to understand the responsibility of law enforcement to ensure that civilians are treated with dignity and respect. The officers involved in this incident, a false accusation against ten Black Washington University students claiming that they left a restaurant without paying, engaged in the most dangerous form of racial profiling by relying solely on the race of the incoming students when stopping them. Such stops are illegal under the Fourth Amendment, which requires officers to have a reasonable, articulable suspicion that prompts them to engage and stop everyday citizens in a free society. The Association of Black Students (ABS) at Washington University in St. Louis demands an apology from the Clayton Police Department to our students as well as the findings of the internal report to which the Chief of Police, Kevin R. Murphy, commits himself. We also demand that the Clayton Police implement training in racial profiling and illegal stops which violate the Fourth Amendment rights of our citizens and perpetuates law enforcements’ unacceptable violation of Black people. This unnecessary and dehumanizing event is important not only to ABS and the Washington University community, but also to the larger discussion on police-community relations, for the racism that fuels our law enforcement and criminal justice systems are not only life-threatening but ultimately unconstitutional. ABS is thrilled about the arrival of this year’s incoming class and will continue to support them as they transition into what should be an exciting and rewarding experience not limited to our university, but also in Clayton and the greater city of St. Louis as well. We ask that you give our students privacy at this time.
