Brad Pitt Death Hoax Story Could Kill Your Computer

9/27/2016 2:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0927_brad_pitt_fake_storyBrad Pitt is alive and well, and if you click on a story claiming otherwise ... it could expose your phone, computer or other device to hackers.

Facebook is warning users not to click on what appears to be a FOX News report about Brad's death. If you do fall for it, and enter the requested info ... the bad guys can get your passwords and control of your account.

The malware is evil genius -- the hackers clearly preying on the public's interest in all things Brad and Angelina Jolie.

If you've already fallen for it (pretty embarrassing, eh?) ... FB suggests changing your password immediately and running its malware software scanner.

NFL's DeAngelo Williams Damn Right I Stiffed Waitress ... 'Service Was Horrible' (UPDATE)

9/12/2016 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0912-deangelo-williams-GETTY-01

update_graphic_red_bar7:52 AM PT -- More bad news for the server ... 

TMZ Sports spoke with Jimmy Marcos -- co-owner of Ledo Restaurant in Maryland -- who tells us DeAngelo's server will be TERMINATED over her handling of the tip situation. 

Long story short ... we're told the restaurant policy is "the customer is always right" and tipping is a reflection of the service -- not mandatory. 

"We were in the wrong," Marcos says.

He also has a message for Williams -- "I want to offer anything I can do. I'll be sure to apologize in person next time he visits and pick up his next meal."update-grey-gray-barPittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is blasting restaurant workers who called him out on social media for not tipping ... saying point-blank -- THEY SUCKED AT THEIR JOBS. 

It all started when the bartender at the restaurant went to Facebook and wrote:

"Just now at work I had Deangelo Williams come in and I waited on while tending bar. His check was $128.25. He left me $129 with no tip but .75 cents. So there you go Stealers fans, your running back is cheap as s**t!!! Smh."

Williams found out about the social media shaming and lashed back -- claiming the service was so terrible, a 75 cent tip was TOO GENEROUS. 

"I tried to leave exact change but couldn't," Williams said ... "I waited on my food for over 1.5 hours."

(For the record, the waitress claims he was only there for 45 mins). 

So, what was allegedly so bad?

For starters, "She never asked for refills," Williams says.

But what really pissed him off -- "I ordered chicken and shrimp in my pasta they put it on my salad."

When he pointed out the mistake, "They took it back and removed it from salad and put It in my pasta leaving a shrimp tail in the salad."

Williams says "terrible service" means terrible tip. 

"I use to wait tables and use to be a bag boy so I know what I'm doing here."

LMFAO's Sky Blu Redfoo Screwed Me On Royalties Kept Shufflin' Without Me

9/12/2016 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0912-sky-blu-redfoo-lmfao-tmz-03One half of LMFAO is sounding off at the other claiming despite family ties he's been left in the dust.

Sky Blu posted a scathing letter on Facebook about Redfoo, who's also his uncle, calling him out for ditching him after he suffered a debilitating back injury.

Sky, who now goes by 8ky, is trying to drop his new solo LP but says Redfoo's lawyers fired off a letter saying he gets zero LMFAO royalties ... money he needs to underwrite his album. He says he's also been unsuccessful getting his share of money held up by Rick Ross' lawsuit against the group.

8ky claims Redfoo pushed him out of LMFAO and "just kept shuffling everyday without me," going as far as using their trademark party rock theme on his own solo LP.

8ky also sounded off on their label, Interscope, saying it needs to "stop treating artist like cows and chickens and using them for all they can produce and then just discard them without a care." 

It's kinda history repeating itself. They're both blood related to Berry Gordy, founder of Motown ... a label that had its fair share of royalty fights.

Amy Schumer Condemns 'Friend' For Mocking Rape Victims

8/17/2016 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-amy-schmer-kurt-metzger-tmz-getty-01Amy Schumer is appalled her friend and fellow comedian, Kurt Metzger, chose to defend someone accused of rape ... by mocking rape victims.

Amy went public Wednesday, saying she was saddened and disappointed at Metzger's sarcastic and profanity-laced posts ... in which he blamed "internet feminists ... for not constantly urging everyone to go to cops FIRST."

Metzger's pissed about allegations another comedian, Aaron Glaser, raped several women in NYC -- and he claims the alleged victims didn't go to police. He went on to urge feminists to "Pull your heads out of your c**** and your c**** out of your blogs, and try actually helping victims."

The PR nightmare for Amy is Metzger has appeared on her Comedy Central show multiple times. She calls him a "great writer," but denies reports he writes for her show ... despite his IMDB credits.

Most importantly, Amy added she "couldn't be more against [Metzger's] recent actions."  

We reached out to Comedy Central, so far no word back.

Facebook Live Shooting 3 Men Hit While Streaming Video

7/13/2016 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Facebook is square in the middle of a shooting for the 2nd time in a week -- this time the victims are 3 men in Virginia who were chilling in a car when the shots were fired.

The incident went down in Norfolk on Tuesday while the men were listening to music, singing along to Lil Bibby's "Word Around Town" and smoking. They were also on Facebook Live when, without warning, a spray of bullets begins -- more than 20 shots fired.

The video is chilling and the camera remained on throughout the incident. Once the shots stop, you hear what appears to be a bystander telling them to stay awake and hold on for an ambulance.

All 3 were hospitalized and police say one of them has life-threatening injuries. So far no suspects, but police are aware of the FB vid and hope it can reveal any clues.

Exactly a week ago ... when Philando Castile was shot and killed by a police officer, his girlfriend used FB Live to stream the aftermath.

Johnson's social media accounts reveal he was a member of several Black Panther organizations, including The New Black Panther Party Houston Chapter.

Johnson also subscribed to a Facebook group called "The Black Matrix," which aims to dismantle the system it believes "white societal elites" have put in place to "control the perceptions of its Black populations."

Johnson -- who served in the U.S. Army -- had involvement with Facebook communities including "Filming Cops" and "Police The Police," which describes itself as a platform for documenting and archiving police misconduct, brutality and abuse of authority.

Dallas PD Chief David Brown said before they took down Johnson he said he was angry about police brutality and wanted to kill white officers.

Castile died after being taken to a local hospital.

The cop says on video, "I told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand out."
