Rev. Al Sharpton Prez Obama Handled N-Word Only Way He Could But Wilmore Was Wrong

5/2/2016 9:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama was checkmated into smiling when Larry Wilmore dropped the N bomb on him -- and couldn't respond the way he should have ... according to Rev. Al Sharpton.

Sharpton is pissed Wilmore referred to the Prez as "My n****" during his monologue at the White House Correspondents' Dinner this weekend -- but he says the timing of it forced Obama to play it off like it was no big deal.

We asked Sharpton about what's turned into a raging debate: Is Obama cool with the n-word?

Watch the clip -- the Rev. thinks Obama was just taking the high road.

But we gotta ask ... 


Blac Chyna Safe Cracked in Home Burglary ... Rob Calls Cops

5/2/2016 8:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0502-rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-TMZ-02Blac Chyna is a couple hundred thousand dollars light after someone got into her safe, and signs point to the culprit being someone close to her and Rob Kardashian.

Law enforcement sources tell us the burglar jacked more than $200k in cash and jewelry from the safe in BC's Tarzana home. We're told Rob, who also stays at the house, discovered the crime and called cops over the weekend. 

Our sources say there were no obvious signs of entry, and the safe wasn't busted open -- leading cops to believe someone in Chyna and Rob's inner circle could be responsible.

As we previously reported ... a Blac Chyna and Tyga sex tape is being shopped around town. It's possible the thieves were looking for a hard copy.

Kevin Hart Goes Down Hard! Looks Like a Setup

5/2/2016 7:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kevin Hart ended his world tour with a major bang -- as in the sound his body made when it took a nasty fall onstage.

Kevin's last stop on his "What Now" tour was in Honolulu Saturday night, and as he made a triumphant exit ... he suddenly got taken out! Flat on his ass.

He explained what went wrong, later on his social media, and it sounds like someone on the crew is gonna have some explaining to do. Or maybe that person's already been fired.


Prince Family Showdown in Court

5/2/2016 6:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



7:20 AM PT -- The probate hearing ended and most of the siblings signed off on Bremer Trust bank being named special administrator of Prince's estate. 

His half brother, John R. Nelson, was not in court, but an attorney said John did not sign the consent form -- but the judge approved the petition to put the bank in charge. John was the only living sibling not present.


Prince's brothers and sisters are showing up for the first court hearing to divide the spoils of Prince's life, and it's already become an acrimonious process.

Tyka Nelson -- Prince's only full sibling -- is expected to show, along with Alfred and some of the other siblings. TMZ broke the story, Tyka stormed out of a meeting Friday after Alfred accused her of disrespecting him by not inviting him to Prince's memorial service.

We're told Tyka set the stage in the meeting for a money fight ... she feels she's entitled to more than 1/6 of the estate, but under Minnesota law all 6 siblings share equally.


Ernie Hudson Obama's Cool with Being Called N**** ...But I'm NOT

5/2/2016 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama needs to grow a pair and stand up for himself when someone calls him "n****" -- at least that's Ernie Hudson's take on the White House Correspondents Dinner.

We asked the ex-Ghostbuster about WHCD host Larry Wilmore's closing remark to Prez Obama -- "Yo, Barry ... you did it my n****!"

Check out his response ... he's quick to note that Barack lets a lot slide off his back, but it sure sounds like he thinks the n-word should NOT be one of them.

As far as we know, so far there are no takers.

Kid Rock 911 Operator Defended by Bosses

5/2/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

429-kid-rock-tmzThe 911 operator who painfully procrastinated while Kid Rock and his girlfriend made a desperate plea for an ambulance was rock solid and right ... so say her bosses.

It's difficult to hear. Kid Rock pleads with the dispatcher to send help for his assistant who appears to be dead after getting into an accident on the singer's ATV, but the dispatcher asks a slew of questions before sending help, some of which make no sense. You hear both Kid Rock and the girlfriend say the man appears dead, and then the dispatcher asks, "Is he awake?"

A rep for the Nashville Emergency Communications Center tells us the dispatcher was following protocol ... adding the agency must protect first responders, so the dispatcher won't send them until he or she is convinced the EMTs aren't putting their lives on the line.

Turns out the ambulance did no good ... KR's assistant, ​Michael Sacha​, was already dead when he called.

Hillary Clinton Now My Staff's Dripping in Hot Sauce!

5/2/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0428-hillary-clinton-thehot-sauce-boss-01Hillary Clinton's affinity for hot sauce has rubbed off on her staff ... because we've learned her campaign just ordered a big shipment of the spicy stuff straight to HQ.

A top Hillary staffer hit up The Hot Sauce Boss for a bottle of each flavor, including Spicy Honey, Guava Mango Coconut, and Spicy Kush Lime. The joke's too easy ... the box was sent to Hillary for America in New York City

We're told the sauce wasn't specifically for H ... the staff has become hardcore disciples, particularly when it comes to eggs. 

As you know, Hillary told Charlamagne Tha God she never leaves home without her sauce.

O-Town Tour Demands Are All '90s Or Nothing

5/2/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0428-otown-getty-tmz-01O-Town's either stuck in the '90s or they just have a great sense of humor about their upcoming tour.

The boy band's hitting the road with 98 Degrees, Dream and Ryan Cabrera for the nostalgic MY2K Tour and their rider is filled with throwback items like a '90s boombox "to play their sweet cassette collection" ... and a Nintendo 64 to "play GoldenEye." 

Other backstage demands include cases of local beer, assorted liquors, 5 cans of silly string and a back scratcher.

Most bizarre on their list is definitely the kitty litter and wet cat food "for the stray cats the band takes in while on the road."

That's gotta be code.
