Serena Williams GQ Cover Sparks Controversy.
While most folks (including us) are hype as hell about Serena’s GQ Woman of the Year cover, others are feeling some type of way—mainly toward the fact that “woman” was written in quotations.
As some have pointed out, the handwritten text was stylized by Virgil Abloh, whose signature includes words stylized with quotation marks.
But considering not everyone may be aware of Abloh’s style, should GQ have considered the racism and sexism Serena’s endured throughout her career when designing the cover?
The Game‘s Wildfire Conspiracy.
The Game believes the latest California wildfires were started to distract from the Thousand Oaks shooting.
“#PrayForUs #Calabasas 🔥 power out, barely any phone service, neighbors gone (my good white people be outta there boy) 🚶🏼♂️💨 fuckin phone on 8% & this shit headed straight for us,” he wrote in an Instagram caption over the weekend. “I can’t abandon the fort tho !!!! Gotta hold it down #RNS [BUT AYE, YOU KNOW I’M SMART & ALWAYS LOOK AT THE ENTIRE PICTURE…. LOWKEY GOT A FEELING THIS FIRE WAS STARTED BY SOMEONE OR SOMEONE(S) TO DIVERT ATTENTION FROM THE MASS SHOOTING IN THOUSAND OAKS 2 DAYS AGO] #STAYWOKE.”
The death toll for the northern California wildfires has risen to 42, making it the most destructive wildfire in the state’s history.
