KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR HAS A WAY WITH WORDS

Never in a million years could we have guessed that we would be admiring 7”2” NBA basketball icon Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as a brilliant writer. But his thoughtful essays in The Hollywood Reporter have repeatedly floored us. Most recently, Abdul-Jabbar wrote about “Hollywood’ts Addiction to the Myth of Manliness” and it illustrates his common sense view of gender and racial bias and how Hollywood perpetuates the backward attitude of “boys will be boys.” He points out that sports coaches insult players by calling them “girls,” (implying they are weak or lazy) without realizing that it is as offensive as black-face. Regarding Liam Neeson’s recent confession, Kareem calmly admits that most men have ignorant past behavior that they need to apologize for in a way that acknowledges the pain caused and promotes a more enlightened perspective. Kareem is our new hero…

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
