Robin Roberts Wasn’t Sure She Wanted to Do the Jussie Smollett Interview.
“I’ll be completely honest, I was like ‘I don’t know if I want to do the interview or not,’” Roberts shared on Monday during The Cut’s “How I Get It Done” event at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge. “I said, ‘I don’t want to sit down with him if he’s going to lawyer up,’ and then I was told, ‘He wants to speak with you,’ [because] he was outraged by people making assumptions about whether it had happened or not.”
She went on to explain how, as a journalist, she felt that the interview was newsworthy, which ultimately played a part in her agreeing to do the interview. She also felt a responsibility as a Black gay woman to represent the LGBTQ community, despite some of the points throughout Smollett’s story that caused many to feel skeptical.
“I sit down with him, and I don’t know what he’s going to say,” she said. “Following up [about how] he couldn’t believe people didn’t believe him, well I go, ‘You’re out 2 o’clock in the morning, you’re getting a sandwich, [and] you won’t give up your phone.’”
The Reactions to the Alleged Sonic Movie Have Been Hilarious.
First Will Smith as the genie, and now this—social media really isn’t into the recently leaked live-action design of Sonic the Hedgehog. Like, since when does Sonic have two separate eyes? According to EuroGame.net, Sonic’s OG creator doesn’t even seem to be feeling it.
“Is this a Sonic movie?” Yuji Naka asked in a tweet, as translated by Microsoft translate. “I feel that it is important to look at the whole body visual of Sonic and head body and stomach. Did you not get a little more balance?”
The rest of Twitter had its two cents to put in, too. See some of the best reactions below:

Reginae Carter, daughter of Lil Wayne, was rightfully not feeling Kodak Black’s recent unpleasant suggestion that Lil Wayne “should’ve died when you was a baby.” The daughter of the Cash Money rapper fired back on Monday stating that “this n***a whole album sound like my daddy old sh*t.”
“You new lil rappers need to start giving props and respect to the Goat,” she said on Instagram. “My father don’t bother nobody. … You pick the night he didn’t go to LIV to say that. You bold.”
Kodak Black—who denied dissing Weezy—hopped on Instagram live with this response:
