Yesterday Twitter was in an uproar about the stock market and the Robinhood Investing app after they blocked users from purchasing certain shares.

A rep for Robinhood announced, “In light of recent volatility, we are restricting transactions for certain securities to position closing only, including $AAL, $AMC, $BB, $BBY, $CTRM, $EXPR, $GME, $KOSS, $NAKD, $NOK, $SNDL, $TR, and $TRVG,” adding, “We also raised margin requirements for certain securities.”

Many people weren’t too excited about being blocked from purchasing certain shares. Rapper Ja Rule, however, woke up this morning pretty upset about it, tweeting: “Yo this is a fucking CRIME what @RobinhoodApp is doing DO NOT SELL!!! HOLD THE LINE… WTF”

Now fans are reacting after rapper Ja Rule added his two cents on the situation, and of course it was nothing but jokes.

One Twitter user referred to a clip from Dave Chappelle tweeting: “You brought this on yourself Ja”

Another user tweeted “I’d normally say don’t listen to Ja Rule when it comes to finances…but it’s Dec 58th 2020, so might as well do it,” while shading Ja Rule.

Twitter user @goodlife_lou couldn’t believe he was agreeing with Ja Rule, tweeting: “The fact that I agree with ja rule scares me”

Another user tweeted: “I never had Ja Rule giving me financial advice in 2021 in my planner, and maybe that’s just what I was missing.”

One user said, “I feel like Ja Rule goes into hibernation and then reappears in chaotic situations.”

Chilling video shows balcony railing collapse as 7 students fall to their death

Seven college students died when a railing they were leaning against broke, sending them plummeting to the concrete floor below.

The tragic incident happened at the Public University of El Alto in Bolivia on Tuesday.

About 100 maskless students were protesting in a packed hallway outside a lecture hall where a tense meeting was being held.

Fights broke out and some of the students were jostling each other when the railing gave way.

Seven students were pronounced dead at the scene. Five students are in critical condition at a hospital.

Disturbing video footage, captured by a bystander showed the moment before the railing broke. A dozen students fell to the concrete floor while a few students were pulled to safety.

A female student in a blue blouse dangled precariously over the edge before her fellow students grabbed her shoes and pulled her back up.

Another female student fortunately landed on the floor just below where the railing broke.

An investigation has been ordered into the accident.

Engineering standards in the United States require balconies to withstand 100 pounds per square feet of load while railings must withstand 200 pounds of force at any point along the railing.

But construction projects are not up to code in third world countries.

Former NFL Player Kellen Winslow II Sentenced To 14 Years In Prison

Former NFL football player Kellen Winslow II was sentenced to 14 years in prison under a plea deal on Wednesday. He was convicted for multiple rapes and sexual offenses against five Southern California women. 

According to the New York Post, Winslow, 37, was convicted on charges of forcible rape, rape of an unconscious person, assault with intent to commit rape, indecent exposure, and lewd conduct in public. He will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. 

He appeared in court virtually at the hearing in San Diego Superior Court in Vista, California. At the advice of his attorneys, Winslow did not speak before his sentencing.

San Diego County Superior Court Judge Blaine Bowman said Winslow could only be described with “two words, and that is sexual predator,” according to the outlet, and called his crimes “brazen.” Bowman also said that he preyed on vulnerable women, saying, “The vulnerability of the victims was no accident.”

The son of former San Diego Chargers Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow exposed himself to his 57-year-old-neighbor, who was gardening. He also performed a lewd act in front of a 77-year-old woman at a gym while concealing his ankle bracelet with a towel. 

The forcible rape involved a homeless Encinitas woman who was one of the four women who gave victim impact statements on Wednesday.

“It’s affecting my life every day and every night,” she said. “I don’t ever feel safe inside or outside. You brought so much damage to my life.”

All of the women who spoke described the emotional trauma they experienced due to the attacks and how it has impacted their lives.

But that jury failed to agree on other charges, including the alleged 2018 rape of a 54-year-old hitchhiker and the 2003 rape of an unconscious 17-year-old high school senior who went to a party with him when he was 19, according to The Post. Before he was retried on those charges, he pleaded guilty to raping the teen and to the sexual battery of the hitchhiker.

Last month, both sides agreed to drop the sexual battery charge down to assault with intent to commit rape. In doing so, the maximum sentence was reduced to 14 years from the 18 years Winslow initially faced.

At one point in his career, Winslow was one of the highest-paid tight ends in the NFL. A first-round pick, he played for the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, and the New York Jets. His last season playing football was in 2013.

Legendary rapper Bun B called out Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott for reopening the entire state and lifting mask mandates.

Gov. Abbott sparked outrage on Tuesday when he announced he was ending Covid-19 restrictions and lifting the mask mandate.

Abbott said all businesses in the state will reopen fully by March 10.

Many praised the governor for his courage and bravery, but Bun B and others expressed outrage and fear that the Covid-19 death rate would escalate despite the availability of Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

Bun B wrote on Instagram: “This is bat sh*t crazy @govabbott and you know it. As if you didn’t already have enough blood on your hands. SMFH.”

The rapper referred to Gov. Abbott’s response to the recent winter storms that knocked out power to millions of residents and resulted in dozens of deaths.

Bun B took a disrespectful tone, stating Gov. Abbott is “not even Worried bout the people….. He Gotta Get Up Out Of Office… @governorabbott.”

Meanwhile, Joe Biden criticized Abbott and other governors who chose to reopen their states and lift mask mandates. Biden called the decision “Neanderthal thinking.”

Gov. Abbott struck back on Twitter by accusing the president of “recklessly releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants who have COVID into Texas communities.”
