Florida Drama Teacher Accused of Sexually Abusing 14 Year Old Student

People — A middle school theater teacher is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old former student.

Brittiny Lopez-Murray, 31, was arrested on multiple charges including lewd and lascivious battery, molestation and engaging in a sexual act with a child.

According to a police arrest affidavit obtained by PEOPLE, Lopez-Murray started abusing the teen, who had been one of her seventh and eighth grade students at Hialeah Middle School, in August after she sent him a “long text message, where she expressed her feelings towards him and how she felt about him.”

Lopez-Murray and the student met at Starbucks for breakfast and then she later allegedly sexually abused him in her white Jeep, including after she picked him up from basketball practice and from his home, the affidavit alleges.

Code 10: #FacebookDown

If you have Facebook then you probably have been getting this error message all day when attempting to log in. The social media network which also owns other platforms such as Instagram and WhatsApp went down this morning at about 11:30AM EST and as of now — is still down.

Currently the time is 5:03PM EST.

For me, it’s not a huge deal since I use social media socially and not to make money, but what about all the business owners and influencers who use Facebook & Instagram in particular to sell their products and services? I guess that’s just a whole day of sales down the drain and that’s gotta suck. Facebook says it’s “sorry” for the inconvenience. There are millions if not billions of dollars tied into social media. It’s influence is worldwide massive.

As of yet Facebook has not identified the cause of the outage but they have admitted that the outage is pretty much worldwide. I guess we will see when it comes back up and how long that will be. Although almost all of the social media platforms have experienced outages, usually not for more than a couple of hours. Definitely not a whole business day. I was questioning it after a couple of hours so I went over to old faithful Twitter to investigate what the heck was going on. By then #FacebookDown was trending so I knew it wasn’t just my WiFi acting up.

What did you do all day to entertain yourself online? Do you have other social media networks outside of Facebook, IG & WhatsApp?

Of course Twitter, like with anything else, made a joke out of the outage.

Rapper Lil Boosie who has had a sordid past with the social media giant, became a trending topic inadvertently. Over the years Boosie has had multiple IG pages deleted mostly due to his own ghetto antics, yet he blames Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of the media conglomerates as racially profiling him. Looks like Boosie got his revenge today, if only for a day.

Should Parents Deny Their Children Financial Inheritance?

Ahhh Mr. Cooper.. I typically enjoy your commentary.

It saddens me when I hear parents, especially of your wealth (that of both what you worked for and mostly inherited) say they don’t believe in leaving their own kids with any kind of financial inheritance.

First of all — kids don’t ask to be born and then to be a child/children born into generational wealth and not be able to inherit any of it seems like the curse to me.

I mean what is it even for?

To make children “struggle” is unfair. I have actually heard parents say, “well I had to struggle so why can’t they (kids) struggle.” I don’t agree with that logic. I do think children should be raised up to value a dollar but if one is lucky enough to be born into wealth, then help should not be withheld with the intention of teaching some kind of struggle lesson. I do believe in hard work and humility but I don’t think a child should have to struggle financially if there are resources available.

I feel like every generation should be set up to excel past the last. In addition to instruction, generational wealth, wether it is money, heirlooms, land — a family business should be passed down to future generations in some capacity. It’s so disheartening to watch families not progress, grow in wealth or elevate for generations upon generations. Then we wonder why crime becomes prevalent.

I’m not real sure I want to comprehend Mr. Cooper’s logic and why he feels not offering financial support in the form of inheritance to his child is beneficial to the child. Forcing a child to struggle for money might teach a lesson but it can also backfire. On the flip, spoiling kids financially definitely ruins perception and sets unrealistic expectations of how life typically works. It’s a battle. One that requires balance. There are various ways to hand down wealth without putting a check directly into a child’s hands. Trust funds, stocks, real estate or even a life insurance policies are great ways to start. Why not set up some stipulations and expectations for the child to adhere to in order to obtain the inheritance? Make them work for it, if you will. Put an age limit on it, something.

I’m not a parent but there’s just no way on Earth I could ever deny my kids anything I have worked and hustled for. Money may not be the main essential of life but it is certainly extremely instrumental. Having money & resources elevate the quality of life. Don’t believe me, go broke and see how instrumental money is.

What do you think? Is it wrong to not pass down financial inheritance?

If you had millions of dollars in the bank would you make your children struggle or “work” for every dollar in order to survive? I’m positive Mr. Cooper does have some sort of monetary pipeline in play, as his mother Gloria Vanderbilt did for him. He came from money, so he knows the value of a dollar, he’s always had one. Or maybe he forgot.

Hashtag: Rich People Problems.

As for me, I can’t see just dying with millions and donating the funds to an animal or institution or just whatever.. I don’t knock those that choose to, it’s their money and not mine. Just saying for me there’s no way in bloody hell I’m leaving my own kids a big fat goose egg.

Not me. What about you?

Gorillas Perform Oral Sex at Bronx Zoo

Patrons of the Bronx zoo got a little more entertainment than what they paid for when two gorillas decided to relieve some sexual tension in full view of the horrified onlookers.

To parents’ horror, a girl gorilla goes in for what appeared to be a hug and instead laid the boy gorilla down and gives him head.

The boy gorilla seemed to be enjoying himself as he laid back and wrapped his hands around her head. Gotta love the animal kingdom.

I can’t post the video on social media since I just got off of restriction for posting “nudity”.

So check it out below.
