Members of the Kardashian crew are doing what they can to support the Black Lives Matter movement — not to mention, the families of recent police killing victims.

According to TMZ, Kanye West (a key member of the Kardashian crew, like it or not) donated a total of $2 million to the families of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, and set up a 529 college savings fund to fully cover tuition for Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter, Gianna.

The rap titan also made a separate donation to cover the legal costs for the Arbery and Taylor families. On top of that, Kanye reportedly plans to donate to several black-owned businesses in his native Chicago and nationwide that have been affected by the civil unrest in the country.

Well, it took several days but this is one heck of a statement!

When Kiitan Amao, Moyo Badun and Sean Hill went to a protest in the small Irish town of Dundalk, they never expected to become the focus of a viral moment. 

However, the three men are now being celebrated after two photos from their childhood and current day circulated online. As of June 4, the tweet has garnered over one million likes and over 200,000 retweets, in addition to thousands of comments.

Kiitan, who is on the left in the above photo, tells E! News that the response to their pictures “has been crazy.” But he says he’s happy because he and his childhood friends are able to show the world that “the support from [their] town was overwhelming.”

“We as a small town called Dundalk managed to send such a strong message to everyone around the world. As such a small community we combined our talents to push a message out to the world,” he explains. “This town is a hidden treasure full of talent and strength.” 

As for what he hopes his friendship with Sean and Moyo represents, Kiitan wants people to know “that if you just unite and love one another you can achieve so much.”

“Dundalk and this friendship did nothing but prove that the human race is stronger together than we are divided into subcategories,” he adds.

Kiitan, Moyo and Sean are three of many thousands of individuals who’ve participated in global Black Lives Matter protests.

These mass marches began over a week ago when George Floyd died on Monday, May 25, after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for nearly 9-minutes, with the assistance of three other officers. This incident was captured on video by a witness and has led to the indictment of all four men involved. 

Though charges were brought against all the former officers, people, including celebrities like HalseyJamie Foxx and Jonah Hill, continue to demand justice and call for racial equality. To learn how to take action and get involved, please click here.

‘I Cannot Speak to My People the Way They Need to Be Spoken To’

Amanda Seales is exiting “The Real.”

In an Instagram Live video this week, the co-host said she has decided not to renew her contract with the daytime talk show. “It doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I can not speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to,” she said. “And where the people who are speaking to me in disparaging ways, are not being handled.”

The announcement came six months after Seales first joined the roundtable show as a permanent co-host, joining Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry and Adrienne Bailon. A spokesperson for the show declined to comment except to confirm Seales’ exit.

“I’m not in a space where I can, as a full black woman, have my voice and my co-workers also have their voices and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for black voices to be at the top too,” Seales told actor and producer Brandon Victor Dixon, who joined her for the conversation.

Seales later clarified in a follow-up post that her decision to leave the show did not stem from her relationship with her co-hosts.

“Y’all so f–ing corny,” she said. “There is a whole pandemic and an uprising going on, and you still can’t find s– else to do but try and create some kind of conflict that doesn’t exist? … What I gotta do with my business ain’t got nothing to do with them sisters.”
