See's Candies Jewish Guy Sues Your Valentine's Boxes are a Kosher LIE!!!

2/10/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209_SEES_CANDY_zoom_arrow

See's Candies has screwed with Jewish tradition by advertising its Valentine's Day boxes as kosher, when they're strictly for the goyim.

Avi Weiss, a Jewish man who keeps kosher, claims in a new lawsuit he wandered into a See's shop last month looking for some kosher sweets. He says the box was specifically advertised as "kosher certified." Check out the lower left corner of the display above the stacks of boxes. 

Now here's where it's a little weird. Avi never explains how he knew the candies weren't kosher. He doesn't say if he ate them nor does he say what gave the unholiness away.  

Avi DOES say kosher certified products "command a premium in the marketplace," and because the boxes aren't kosher he overpaid.

His is a class action suit, for all the upset Jews who are left holding the box on Valentine's Day.

Conor McGregor 'Me & Jesus Are Cool' Gods Recognize Gods

Breaking News

Memba when Conor McGregor said he could whoop Jesus Christ's ass in an MMA fight?

Well, seems the two have finally made peace. 

McGregor was at the news conference for the UFC 197 fight against Rafael dos Anjos ... when a fan asked Raf if he was offended by Conor's comments, since he's a very religious guy.  

Raf essentially says Conor will feel Jesus' wrath come fight time ... but Conor says he ain't worried, since he and JC are cool, bro. 

It's pretty funny stuff. 

David Miscavige Fake Cop Busted For Threatening To Assassinate Scientology Leader

1/10/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0108-david-miscavige-GETTY-01Scientology honcho David Miscavige had reason to fear a guy who threatened to kill him, because we've learned the guy was armed with ammo and pretended to be a cop.

According to a search warrant obtained by TMZ, Andre Barkanov had been convicted twice for impersonating a cop and he was undeterred, because when his home was raided in the Miscavige case, police found live ammo, a holster, badge holder and a magazine ... and we're not talking People.

As we reported, Barkanov allegedly made numerous death threats by phone, threatening to "assassinate" Miscavige. In one call Barkanov allegedly said, "I forgot to mention that we are going after you! ... all your people ... including your jagoff, motherf*****, c***sucker, David Miscavige, OK?"

He's been charged with a bunch of felonies.  

Kardashian Pastor Church Sued for Art Theft

Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. -- who counts Justin Bieber and the Kardashians among his flock -- is not as holy as he claims ... so say some Miami street artists who says the church stole from them.

It seems Wilkerson's Miami place of worship, Vous Church, used a series of works done by artists like Typoe, Bikismo and Ahol Sniffs Glue in social media and newspaper ads ... without permission.

The works the good Pastor lifted were murals for a local public school, never designed for "a well-funded celebrity church brand or its prosperous pastors."

The lawsuit -- filed by Kushnirsky Gerber PLLC -- makes mention of Wilkerson's lavish lifestyle and celebrity connections (he officiated Kim and Kanye's wedding) but claims the church never once offered to ante up a penny.

BTW ... the suit says even if Wilkerson asked for permission, they would have denied it.

Hoverboarding Priest Suspended by Church What Would Jesus Say?

12/30/2015 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hoverboarding is an unholy activity unbecoming a priest ... so says the diocese in the Philippines that benched him.

The priest conducted Christmas mass in the city of Binan while tooling around the church on his board. It didn't sit well with church officials.

Those closer to God said, "The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence. It is the Church's highest form of worship, not a personal celebration where one can capriciously introduce something to get attention."

The honchos in the diocese said they want to give the priest in question time to "reflect," calling it "a wake up call."

Fetty Wap Makes it Rain ... Bar Mitzvah Style!

12/14/2015 11:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Nothing says a Jewish boy's becoming a man like a Fetty Wap performance at his Bar Mitzvah, and a wad full of benjis.

The owners of Baron Tequila, a Kosher tequila brand, paid Fetty $50k to rock the house at Illagio in Queens for their son, David. Fetty, who showed up on crutches -- still recovering from his motorcycle wreck -- rocked the house and gave $1,000 in hundred dollar bills to David so he could "make it rain." 

This is Fetty's 2nd successful collabo with the tribe ... he and Lil Dicky made a hilarious video called "$ave Dat Money" which has already racked up more than  20 million views.

As for how dope this party was -- there were arcade games, a mechanical bull, and sushi made of candy wrapped in fruit roll-ups!

Check out the video where this 13-year-old boy (now a man) sported a hat bigger than his head in honor of Fetty.

Is there a yarmulke in Fetty's future? 

Mazel tov, Fetty!

EXCLUSIVE

Rick Ross just pulled a John Lennon ... pumping up his new album by likening it to the Festival of Lights. Shalom? 

Ross' "Black Market" drops this Friday, just two days before Hanukkah starts -- a fact he was clearly aware of when we got him in NYC, and asked if he had any predictions for the album's success.

His answer won't get him invited to any menorah lightings next week, but his delivery is pretty funny.

Move over 1966 Lennon ... you've got company now.
