2/24/2017 7:26 AM PST

0224-shaq-oneal-javale-mcgee-tmz-01Shaq's playful beef with NBA player JaVale McGee just went NUCLEAR ... with the two men vowing to fight each other ON SIGHT after a series of menacing and threatening tweets.

McGee's been a target of Shaq's 'Shaqtin' A Fool' segment on "Inside The NBA" for years, and apparently had enough when the broadcast devoted a whole segment to his on court screw-ups Thursday night.

JaVale took to Twitter and blasted O'Neal, asking Shaq to kindly get his umm, peanut emojis out of his mouth ... you get the meaning, right?

Shaq wasted no time firing back ... leveling a direct physical threat at the Warriors big man that had ZERO of O'Neal's trademark levity.

"@JaValeMcGee34 don't be acting like u a g I'll smack the s**t out yo bum ass u da one that be looking stupid with your dumb ass #bumass."

His rant continued, "I also learned Spanish so I could speak with her parents who weren't fluent in English." He also says his attacker used the n-word on Twitter a couple years ago. As Aaron put it ... "And I'm the racist?"

TMZ broke the story ... as security removed the attacker, who is Latino, Aaron yelled, "Bye Felipe!" Aaron insists he was just doing the male version of "Bye Felicia!"

Kanye West Deletes All Trump Tweets I'm Not with Him Anymore

2/6/2017 9:51 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0206-kanye-west-trump-tmz-01Kanye West has scrubbed his Twitter account of all things Trump, and it's because he's super unhappy with the president's performance over his first 2 weeks in office.

Kanye had tweeted about Trump in a positive light after the election. In December, the day he met with Trump in NYC, he wrote, "I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change." 

Kanye also wrote about issues on which he felt he could influence Trump, writing, "These issues include bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago."

0206-kanye-trump-tweets-swipeKanye's decision to remove the tweets was all his. The "Muslim ban" and other actions were the catalyst for his decision. 

Donald Trump Continues Schwarzenegger Attack He Also Failed as Governor

2/3/2017 6:13 AM PST

0207-donald-trump-tmzDonald Trump has doubled down on Arnold Schwarzenegger, not only trashing his performance on 'Celebrity Apprentice' but ripping him over his tenure as Governor of California.

Trump tweeted, "Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice ... but at least he tried hard!"

Trump's tweet follows the President's attack at the National Prayer Breakfast, where he told the group the movie star was failing as his TV successor, saying he was praying for the Gov.

Schwarzenegger followed up with an offer to trade places, so the country would not be riddled with anxiety.

It's unclear why Trump is on the attack. He gets a big cut of the profits if the show does well. True enough, Arnold ended up not supporting Trump in the election, but he followed a long list of Hollywood stars.

Kim Kardashian Goes After Trump ... By the Numbers

1/29/2017 6:47 AM PST

0129-kim-kardashian-donald-trump-TMZ-03Kim Kardashian is going head-to-head with Donald Trump ... with statistics.

Kim is trying to show the threat of Islamic terrorists to Americans pales in comparison to American-on-American gun violence.

She posted a screen grab of a chart with stats generated by the CDC -- which shows, over the last 10 years, Islamic jihadist immigrants were responsible for 2 murders per year.  

By contrast, armed toddlers kill 21 people per year. Lawnmowers kill 69, and falling out of bed kills 737 annually.

The biggest number ... 11,737 Americans are shot and killed by their fellow citizens.

There is no text that accompanies Kim's post, other than the word "Statistics." She does not mention recent attacks, such as the San Bernardino shooting, which resulted in the slaughter of 14.

EXCLUSIVE

0124-johnny-manziel-tmz-02Johnny Manziel says Twitter has been nothing but a "distraction" for him -- and that's why he deleted his account ... telling TMZ Sports he wants to focus on "bettering himself."

Manziel's account suddenly disappeared from the Twittersphere on Monday after the QB offered up some social media advice to President Donald Trump ... begging the question: What happened?!

We reached out to Johnny who explained, "Twitter has been nothing but a distraction for me. I've said all I can say."

"Now I need to shut the hell up and work on bettering myself and my situation."

As we've previously reported, Manziel says he's sober and working out again with the hopes of getting back to the NFL.

He's also said he wants to be like Tom Brady ... who also doesn't have a Twitter account.

Trump Inauguration Pic Wrong Date ... Alternative Fact

1/24/2017 9:33 AM PST

0124-donald-trump-inug-photo-wrong-date-twitter-03President Trump proudly flaunted a photo from his inauguration, but there's one problem -- it has the wrong date on it!

The portrait -- by Panoramic Visions Photography -- touts "The Ceremony of President Donald J. Trump" going down on January 21st, 2017. Juuust a bit outside. It actually went down on Jan. 20 -- as it always has since 1937.

Chalk it up to alternative facts. Maybe that's why the prez says he's hanging it in the Press Hall.

Panoramic Visions tells us the flub's being corrected.

Trump to Protesters If You're So Upset, Why Didn't You Vote?

1/22/2017 6:49 AM PST

0122-donald-trump-womens-rights-protests-TMZ-GETTY-01Donald Trump sent 3 different messages to America via Twitter re: Saturday's protests:

1.   You sat on your hands. Trump said, "Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election!  Why didn't these people vote?"

2.  Celebrities are a turnoff.  It's a theme Trump has carried forward since early on in his campaign.  He said, "Celebs hurt cause badly."  Lots of celebs spoke at the rallies, including Scarlett Johansson, Ashley Judd, Amy Schumer and Madonna.

3.  I'm not against protests. Trump ended with a conciliatory thought, saying, "Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy.  Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views."

Prez Trump and Melania We're @POTUS and @FLOTUS Now

Twitter's official POTUS and FLOTUS handles have changed profile images to President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump

Twitter made the switch almost immediately after Trump was sworn in as the 45th Prez. Meanwhile, the Obamas are now @POTUS44 and @FLOTUS44.

This appears to be the first time in history Twitter's done this. Tweeting wasn't nearly as widespread in 2009, and @POTUS wasn't created until 2015.

Peaceful transition ... on social media. Just as the forefathers wanted it.

0119-johnny-manziel-tmzJohnny Manziel is refuting reports that he's planning to charge fans $50 to take selfies at the Super Bowl ... saying it's "the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

"Just had this brought to to my attention. I'm not charging a penny for a damn 'selfie' at the super bowl," Johnny tweeted.

"I'm doing this signing for the people (especially Texans) who have stuck with me through all the mistakes I've made these past years #tru"

As for the $99 charge per autograph, Johnny didn't confirm or deny that. 

'A Dog's Purpose' Actor, Director Shaken Over Terrified Dog Video

1/19/2017 5:53 AM PST

The actor who voices the German Shepherd shown in the extremely disturbing video posted by TMZ says he's "shaken and sad" ... and the director echoed the sentiment.

Josh Gad, who appears in the upcoming film as the voice of the dog, says he's seen the video, which he describes as "a scared German Shepard being forced to perform a stunt." He says he doesn't have the full context, but adds, "I am shaken and sad to see any animal put in a situation against its will."

Gad is calling for "an explanation," and so is director Lasse Hallstrom, who says "I have been promised that a thorough investigation into this situation is underway and that any wrongdoing will be reported and punished."
