U. of New Hampshire Sorority Free to Sing N-Word ... Never Was an Investigation

9/21/2017 12:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The sorority whose members loudly sang Kanye West's "Gold Digger" and included the n-word ... will NOT be punished ... TMZ has learned. 

A rep from the University of New Hampshire tells us the Alpha Phi sisters showed poor judgment in the video of them using the n-word, but UNH is not investigating the matter. The rep says the initial report claiming UNH had opened a probe was incorrect -- and there will be no discipline for the sorority.

We're told the women of Alpha Phi have apologized.

The university rep also tells us UNH has a strong commitment to the First Amendment, but also has a duty to help students understand how their actions and words can affect people.

White sorority girls singin' the n-word ... yep.

Question is, should they be thrown out of the Univ. of New Hampshire for their bars ... considering it was all part of a Kanye West sing-along?

The Alpha Phi Sorority is now under the microscope of UNH officials for yelling out the n-word in "Gold Digger."

Someone posted video of the sorority performance on Facebook, and some people are really pissed.

BTW ... New Hampshire is the "Live Free or Die" state ... it's emblazoned on their license plates.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell Stop the Hammering Or I'll Do It For You ... Total Meltdown!!!

9/20/2017 2:47 PM PDT

Keep your damn hammers quiet when MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell is working or he'll have to ... go down to the "goddamned floor" himself and stop it!

O'Donnell hammered that point home when he absolutely melted down while shooting an MSNBC broadcast, reportedly on Aug. 29. The veteran reporter lost it on the floor crew, the control room ... and whoever had the audacity to hammer during his show. He said he was also getting extraneous noise in his earpiece. 

In his defense, the construction noise was blatant, and would reasonably be distracting O'Donnell as he tried to do his job. He added the whole situation was "f**king out of control."

Lawrence apologized about the incident Wednesday evening, tweeting ... "A better anchorman and a better person would've had a better reaction to technical difficulties. I'm sorry."

LO's flip out is good, but for our money -- Bill O'Reilly's still got the crown. 'Cause he did it LIVE!

Breaking News

Kevin Durant says it was "childish" and "idiotic" to slam his former OKC Thunder coach and teammates on Twitter this week ... but insists he was NOT trying to do it from a secret 2nd account. 

KD just addressed the situation at TechCrunch Disrupt -- where he was asked straight-up if he intended to post the anti-OKC tweets from an anonymous account so nobody would know it was him.

Durant denied the allegation ... only admitting to another Instagram account -- "but that's just for my friends and family so I wouldn't say I was using that to clap back at anybody."

KD says he enjoys engaging with basketball fans on Twitter but, "I happened to take it a little too far" when he told 1 fan that he left OKC because he "didn't like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan."

"I don't regret clapping back at anybody or talking to my fans on Twitter," Durant said at TechCrunch ... "I do regret using my former coach's name and the former organization that I played for."

"That was childish. That was idiotic. All those type of words ... I regret doing that and I apologize to him for doing that."

KD says he felt bad about it ... but will continue to use Twitter.

Dick Gregory's Son Emmys Snub 'Highly Disrespectful' ... We Never Got a Phone Call

9/18/2017 2:29 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dick Gregory's family didn't hear a peep from anyone involved with the Emmys regarding honoring the iconic comedian, and they absolutely consider it a slap in the face.

One of Dick's sons, Christian Gregory, tells TMZ the omission Sunday night from the In Memoriam segment was especially disrespectful due to his father's legacy. Christian points out most actors and producers of color wouldn't even be working in TV without Dick's civil rights activism and success in entertainment.

As we reported, Gregory, Charlie Murphy, Harry Dean Stanton and Frank Vincent were all left out of the tribute. Murphy's camp had been contacted for photos, but he was still absent from the broadcast segment.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences hasn't offered an explanation, but they've added all of them -- except Vincent -- to the Academy's website memoriam.

Emmys 2017 Dick Gregory, Charlie Murphy, Frank Vincent, Harry Dean Stanton Forgotten In Memoriam

9/17/2017 8:02 PM PDT

The showrunners for the 2017 Emmys forgot to honor some noteworthy performers during their in memoriam segment ... including Dick Gregory, Charlie Murphy, Harry Dean Stanton and Frank Vincent who all died this year.

During the memorial montage of Hollywood stars who passed away so far in 2017, a bunch of TV stars, producers and other figures in showbiz were remembered except the above 4 guys ... and many people noticed the omissions, including Common.

It's odd ... all 4 actors had performed in TV shows and series in their careers at one point or another. Gregory had starred in "Reno 911!" and "Wonder Showzen", Murphy in "Chappelle's Show" and "The Boondocks" and others, Stanton in a number of TV roles and Vincent in "The Sopranos."

Still ... the Emmys failed to recognize them regardless.

Donald Trump I Was Right About Charlottesville!!! 'Bad Dudes' On Both Sides

9/14/2017 3:12 PM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump is back to blaming "both sides" for the violence in Charlottesville ... and gloating that he was right to say it in the first place.

Trump was on Air Force One Thursday when he said he'd told South Carolina's Republican Senator Tim Scott -- the day before -- that there were "bad dudes" on the other side of white supremacist protests. 

The Prez doubled down, saying Antifa's actions since then prove he was right all along -- "I said you got some really bad people on the other side also, which is true."

Why he decided to bring up the subject again -- after backpedaling from the divisive remarks -- is anyone's guess.

Floyd Mayweather says his friend Donald Trump's infamous "grab them by the p***y" comment is no big deal ... because Trump was just talking like a "real man."

Floyd appeared on the "Hollywood Unlocked" show when he was asked about the leaked Access Hollywood video from 2005 -- you know the one.

Floyd agrees with Trump that it was just "locker room talk" ... and explains how the language Trump used is simply how "real men" speak to each other.

"Real men speak like, 'Man, she had a fat ass. You see her ass? I had to squeeze her ass. I had to grab that fat ass.' Right? So he talking locker room talk."

"I’m the man, you know what I’m saying? You know who I am. Yeah, I grabbed her by the p***y. And?"

Bottom line -- Floyd thinks Trump was just keepin' it real.

Bobbi Kristina's Estate Joins Bobby Brown to Stop Biopic

9/12/2017 11:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bobbi Kristina's estate has now joined forces with Bobby Brown to stop TV One from doing a biopic on Bobbi Kristina's life ... TMZ has learned.

Bobby has already filed suit, claiming the portrayal as a bad dad is defamatory.

Bobbi Kristina's estate has now joined the lawsuit, claiming the biopic violates Bobbi Kristina's right to privacy, which they claim survived her death.

Bobby Brown has already claimed in his lawsuit the movie falsely shows him as a violent person toward Whitney Houston. The show suggests Bobbi Kristina witnessed the alleged abuse. He also claims the scenes show him as an unloving father.

The estate and Bobby want more than $2 million in damages and they want the judge to block the airing of the show.

The show is set to air on TV One next month.

Gigi Hadid Walks Off Lost Heel Mid-Runway

EXCLUSIVE

If Gigi Hadid loses a high heel while working a Fashion Week runway, but keeps going like she still has it on ... did she really lose it?

The answer is yes, but Gigi did a helluva job Monday in NYC of covering up during the Anna Sui show. It's unclear how, or why, but she lost the shoe just as she headed down the cat walk.

This could've spelled disaster -- remember the spill her sister Bella took? But you'd never know there was a problem if you weren't looking at Gigi's feet.  

She gets an A for the save. Whoever strapped on her shoe does not.
