Stacey Dash to ESPN

End Schilling's Suspension

... He Was Right!

8/27/2015 3:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-Stacy-Dash-Curt-Schilling-MAIN-GETTY-TMZ-01"Clueless" star Stacey Dash says Curt Schilling has the truth on his side, and ESPN was way outta line when it benched him for his controversial Muslim/Nazi tweet.

H/T BSO for pointing out Dash jumping to Schilling's defense. She tweeted that the worldwide leader actually owes the ex Red Sox ace an apology. As Dash put it ... "So, now we can't tweet things that are true?"

You'll recall Schilling posted a meme comparing today's radical Muslims to Nazis in the 1940s. ESPN immediately pulled him from its Little League World Series coverage.

Schilling hasn't had this kinda rotation support since Randy Johnson.

Rick Ross

Wasn't the Boss at Super Bowl XLIX ...

Give Us Back Our $55k!

8/21/2015 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0821-rick-ross-superbowlRick Ross' gig at a Super Bowl party turned into a disaster because he's no social media guru ... in fact he sucks at Instagram and Twitter ... according to the company that paid him to headline.

Conexts is suing Rick for the Jan. 30 event that was scheduled to go down at the Scottsdale Mall Amphitheater. According to the docs, Ricky Rozay agreed to do some heavy duty social media promotion for the party and concert.

The company says he was supposed to do DAILY social postings for 2 weeks leading up to it -- but only did ONE post. Conexts says it was crucial for the event's success for Rick to reach out to his 13 million followers.

0821-subasset-rick-ross-superbowl2Rick got $55,000 up front, and was scheduled to get another $55k the night of party ... however, the event was canceled just a few days before, and they had to issue refunds.

Conexts wants its $55k plus damages.

Darnell Dockett

SUBWAY IS DEAD TO ME

... 'Cause Of Jared

8/20/2015 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0820-darrnell-dockett-getty-02Darnell Dockett's days of the five dollar foot long are over ... 'cause the San Francisco 49ers star says he's so disgusted by the Jared Fogle scandal he's never touching Subway again.

As TMZ previously reported ... Fogle -- Subway's go-to pitch man for the last 15 years -- has been charged with traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with minors and has struck a plea deal with prosecutors.

The controversy is obviously too much for Dockett's appetite ... 'cause he just announced he's changing his fast food alliance forever.

"Mann ain't no Sub way sandwich bih... Jared being trifling with kids. No I won't ever eat sun way again.. I'll just eat @wingstop instead!"

Look on the bright side Subway ... this is the least bad news you've gotten all week.

Kendall & Kylie Jenner

Trap Queens for

Ex-Duke Superstars

8/13/2015 3:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0813_kylie_and_kendall_jenner_getty-2Former Duke stars and NBA first rounders Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones are teaming up again -- this time to holla at Kendall and Kylie Jenner ... Fetty Wap style. 

Tyus and Jahlil -- like many NBA players, we suspect -- were hot on the sisters' tails Thursday ... using Twitter to reach out. 

Our pals at BSO pointed out the ballers' tweets -- using "Trap Queen" lyrics.

0813_tyus_tweet_twitter

0813_jahil_tweet_twitterNot horribly creative on the ex-Dukies' parts, but we'll give 'em partial credit for effort, and for waiting until after Kylie's 18th birthday. So far, doesn't look like either Jenner sis has followed Tyus and Jahlil.

They shoulda gone with ... "Seen yo pretty ass soon as you came in that door."

James Woods

Suing Twitter Troll

... for $10 Million!!!

breaking news

0730-james-woods-tmz-01James Woods is suing a guy for something every celebrity has to deal with every day -- someone talking trash on Twitter ... and he's gunning for $10 million.

Woods is going after a guy who goes by the name of Abe List. Woods claims List trashed his good name several times -- with tweets calling him a "prick," "joke," "scum," "clown-boy" ... but crossed the line when he accused the star of being a "cocaine addict." 

It's worth noting ... List has a paltry 2,274 followers, but Woods claims his 238,932 could have seen the tweet as well. 

Woods claims his reputation was damaged to the tune of $10 mil. 

Kim Kardashian

I Got a Great Idea for Twitter

0725-kim-k-twitter-tmz-02Kim Kardashian had a brainstorm Friday night to help Twitter, and the co-founder sucked up to her almost instantly.

Kim tweeted, "I just emailed Twitter to see if they can add an edit feature so that when you misspell something u don't have to delete & repost.  Let's see ..." 

A half hour later, Twitter big wig Jack Dorsey responded like it was a cure for cancer ... "great idea! We're always looking at ways to make things faster and easier."

When you have followers, people will follow.

Taylor Swift

Bows Down to Nicki Minaj

7/23/2015 9:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0723-swift-minaj-getty-twitter-01Taylor Swift blinked first ... giving Nicki Minaj a full-on apology in an attempt to squash their Twitter war. There's hope for world peace, after all.

Taylor tried to dismiss the whole mess, saying ... "I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke."

Swift took the high road, and seemed to accept Nicki's explanation that her initial Twitter rant about a VMAs snub was not an attack on Taylor ... although she never explained who she WAS targeting.

Anyway, Nicki thanked Taylor for the apology ... and now everyone can play nice.

First Meek and now Taylor? Nicki's not just queen of the Barbs. 

Katy Perry

Taylor Swift Is a Hypocrite ...

Re: Girl-On-Girl

breaking news

0722-perry-swift-tmz-getty-twitter-01Katy Perry just weighed in on music's biggest bitch sesh -- calling Taylor Swift a full-on hypocrite for accusing Nicki Minaj of taking down a woman.  

Perry thinks it's hysterical Swift told Nicki ... "It's so unlike you to pit women against each other." The joke, to Katy ... is that Taylor went for her neck with "Bad Blood" -- and proceeded to make a ton of cash off the song that's all about throwing shade at Katy.  

Nicki took notice -- and favorited Katy's tweet.

Taylor might wanna call for backup.

Mike Tyson

I'm Not Afraid of Twitter

People Always Told My Secrets

7/10/2015 9:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mike Tyson says he wouldn't have had to worry about being put on blast on Twitter back in his heyday -- because when it came to girls, "They told anyway, so it was just like Twitter."

Tyson was at LAX with his wife Lakiha when we asked if social media makes it harder for celebrities and pro athletes to keep their private lives private ... and Mike told us, for him it wouldn't have mattered. 

Check out the clip ... Tyson also responds to boxer James Toney -- who recently said he'd beat Iron Mike's ass if they get into the ring in a widely rumored comeback fight. 

"I'm 50-years-old," Tyson said ... "anybody can beat me now!"

Yeah, we highly doubt that. 

#TheDress Debate 2.0

What Color Is

#TheShoe?!?!

0709-shoe-nail-polish
If that damn blue & black OR white & gold dress debate didn't destroy all your friendships -- try this one out ... #TheShoe.

Just like that freakin' #TheDress -- there are 2 options: Pink or purple? The person who posted this included an answer key, sorta -- the nail polish colors.

Does the shoe match the the color on the left ... or the one on the right?

Supposedly the answer is ... left! Now, is that pink or purple? Commence tearing each other apart. 

Safaree Samuels

My New Chick

Is Hotter Than Nicki Minaj

7/9/2015 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0709-safaree-and-zashia-main-01Safaree Samuels found the perfect way to get over Nicki Minaj … super hot model, Zashia Santiago.

Nicki’s ex couldn't keep his hands off Zashia when he posed for a pic with his new buxom babe -- kinda easy to see why.

Safaree and Nicki have been warring with each other ever since their breakup. They've each recorded break up songs, but with Zashia in the picture ... we're thinking he'll be singing a much different tune.

Maybe it's just us, but Zashia looks like a Nicole Murphy-Amber Rose mashup -- and that's a good thing.
