Family Was Being ‘Eaten Alive’ At Walt Disney World, Bitten 331 Times

0

A Kentucky family was enjoying “The Most Magical Place on Earth” while on vacation, but they ended up living a “nightmare.” They were being eaten alive, but upon closer inspection, it was worse than expected.

Christina Streble and her family were vacationing in Central Florida when they noticed bites kept popping up on their bodies while visiting Walt Disney World, Click Orlando reported. At first, they assumed the bites were caused by mosquitoes since they were in a warm-weather environment, but when more started popping up over the next few days, they knew it had to be something else.

“We counted 206 bites on our older daughter and 125 bites on our middle daughter. They were red and inflamed,” the mother of four children recalled, describing the discomfort suffered by her children. And, the pictures speak for themselves.

When Christina Streble and her family returned to their room at the Oak Plantation Resort in Kissimmee, they pulled back the bed sheets and lifted the mattress. That’s when they made a skin-crawling discovery. The mattress was infested with watermelon seed-sized bed bugs that feed off human blood and are notoriously hard to get rid of.

Christina said when her husband alerted management about the problem, nothing was done. The Strebles were forced to end their vacation early to head back home to Louisville. When they saw a doctor, Christina said he told her it was the worse case he’d ever seen. “The doctor that saw our daughters said that this was the worst case of bed bugs that he had ever seen,” she said, according to WESH-TV. “This has been a nightmare.”

After the family filed a consumer complaint, inspectors with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation came to the resort and confirmed that bed bugs were found in the room where the family stayed. Resort spokeswoman Grace Velez said that the room has now been treated. She called it an isolated incident.

“We are a 242-unit property. Last weekend, we were at 96 percent occupancy, and this is the only complaint that came out of this resort, so we are a great family friendly resort with a great staff close to Disney, so please don’t let this scare you off,” Velez said.

The resort plans on reaching out to the family to offer them either a refund for their time spent or a free week back. However, it’s doubtful that they’ll be returning to the resort anytime soon, given that the family’s children are still creeped out by what happened. “It’s a nightmare,” Christina Streble said. “The kids have a hard time sleeping because they keep thinking something is crawling on them.”

I feel bad for this family and anybody else who may have experienced a similar situation. Hopefully, the family realized that their luggage may have had the bugs in it too and took the necessary precautions to ensure they didn’t carry them back home. If not, they’re going to be battling them for a while, since they’re not easy to remove. As for the rest of us, let this be a lesson that we need to inspect our accommodations closely when away from home. It’s better to be safe than sorry — or incredibly itchy.

Blogger Tasha K Reacts To Losing Million-Dollar Cardi B Lawsuit

0

Following a long and arduous legal battle, Cardi B is reportedly celebrating a victory. We recently reported on the news taking over timelines today (January 24) about Cardi B defeating YouTuber Tasha K, real name Latasha Kebe, in the much-talked-about lawsuit. Kebe spread several rumors about the rapper in videos and on social media where she stated Cardi had a sexually transmitted disease, would penetrate herself with beer bottles while dancing at strip clubs, was a drug abuser, cheated on her husband Offset, and was a prostitute.

It was also reported by Billboard that although today’s ruling confirmed Cardi won $1.25 million, that judgment could increase in the future.

The outlet reported:

Ultimately, the jurors sided with Cardi B on Monday. In addition to defamation, the jury also held Kebe liable for invasion of privacy through portrayal in a false light, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Kebe’s attorneys can challenge the verdict to the judge in the weeks ahead. If he upholds it, her attorneys can then appeal the verdict to a federal appeals court.

After the news of the ruling circulated with speed throughout the internet, Tasha K offered a brief mention of her legal loss.

“My Husband, Attorney’s, & I fought really hard,” Kebe tweeted. “I want to thank them for their long hours and sleepless nights. Winos it’s only up from here. See y’all in a few days.Clinking glassesFolded hands Back to work. #unwinewithtashak #nowigottagobye.” She then immediately posted an advertisement video on Instagram where people flooded her comment section with remarks about needing money to pay off the million-dollar judgment.

Kebe did also reportedly previously admit that she fabricated those stories about Cardi but later backtracked on those statements.

Roddy Ricch Is Ready For The “Money Message” Trend To End

0

What started as a message by NBA YoungBoy has turned into what looks to be a trend with no ending in sight. YoungBoy has been in a bit of a social media rift with a few of his fellow rappers after a beef was seemingly reignited. He spelled out a few words with stacks of cash, a message that many interpreted as being for his foes, but it looks like the public has taken what was deemed as something negative and flipped it to humor.

We’ve seen that artists like French Montana and Fivio Foreign have given their takes on the money-based trend, but not everyone is following suit. Nick Cannon offered up his addition as a warning.

“IRS Watchin,” the media mogul spelled out in toilet paper. For decades, there have been investigations into entertainers, especially rappers, but things have kicked up a notch now that the authorities have been keeping a keen eye on social media activity. It doesn’t look as if Cannon is ready to flex his wealth like the others as some have argued that this could cause concern for people’s safety.

The often quiet Roddy Ricch emerged with his take on the popular trend, and while he opted to use cash, it seems he’s ready for this to end.

“Everybody please STFU,” the rapper spelled out. It doesn’t look as if this trend will dissipate anytime soon. Check it out below.

VIDEO: Heroic Boys Save Dog From Clutches Of A Boa Constrictor

0

A video captured what has been described as “the worst possible thing” that could happen to a beloved family pet when a boa constrictor tried to make a meal out of a dog in front of three children, who obviously loved the animal. Luckily for this dog, the three heroic boys weren’t about to let their canine go without a fight.

A viral video that has made its rounds on social media time and again captured the moment a boa constrictor attempted to crush a dog in its coils as the snake tried to make a meal out of the family pet. Although details are few and far between, the video — which commenters have suggested was recorded in Cambodia, according to Rare — is 22 seconds of heart-pounding action.

Posted by the IBTimes UK YouTube channel, the video shows a trio of boys fighting a snake that looks to be about three meters long, according to Yahoo News. “This shocking footage shows three children take on a giant snake, batting it with metal rods and leaves, as they try to save a dog caught in its grip,” the video description of the jaw-dropping footage reads.

(Photo Credit: Screenshot)

From the moment the heart-stopping clip begins, the danger is obvious. The large snake is already wrapped around the canine’s lower half as the dog tries desperately to walk away, but the snake’s coils are too tight. The dog appears to yelp amid the commotion, powerless to free itself.

It’s quickly apparent that time is running out and the dog is about to be crushed. Thankfully, however, the dog is not alone. Three boys are present, and rather than just watching the nightmare unfold, they leap into action in a desperate attempt to save their dog, according to Wide Open Pets, and their bravery is caught on camera:

As the giant snake attempts to crush the dog to death with the intention of making a meal out of the family pet, three boys — presumably the dog’s owners — do everything they can to ensure their pup doesn’t meet such a horrendous fate. Armed with what appears to be a metal rod or table leg, one boy hits the snake repeatedly as the other two children strike at the constrictor with the only thing they can find: leaves.

Shockingly, batting the boa with metal rods and leaves proves effective. With the snake’s attention turned on its attackers, one of the children is able to grab the serpent by the head as his comrades then begin to unravel the snake’s strong body, loosening its coils in an attempt to free the canine from its clutches.

Furious about the prospect of losing its next meal, the snake thrashes and strikes back, putting up a hard fight until the boys are able to grab hold of both ends of it. The brave rescue mission proves a success as the dog breaks free and wriggles away, and the video comes to an end.

Although we don’t know whether the dog suffered any lasting physical trauma, viewers are reassured that the canine was likely okay since it was able to run away from the snake after being released from its death grip. Commenters were quick to congratulate and praise the three heroic children involved, saying they “are braver and more coordinated than so many adults.”

There are those, however, who suggest the video may have been staged. “You can tell the dog has been in that situation before by how it just sat there,” one such viewer remarked, adding, “evil ass little kids.” Another YouTube user, also believing the video is staged, suggests reporting such videos. “These people put the animals in this situation to get views,” the commenter wrote. “A hell lot of such videos have been made.”

For the sake of humanity, we hope the assumptions are wrong. Even if they are not, however, there’s a reason this video has made its rounds on social media time and again. Viewers understand the love many dog owners have for their pets. There’s a reason canines have been coined “man’s best friend,” and there are plenty of people — young and old — who’d put their own life on the line to save their furry friend.

JT Defends Muni Long’s “Hrs & Hrs” Against Complaints From Critics

0

At this point, it’s nearly impossible to make it through social media without hearing Muni Long’s “Hrs & Hrs.” The viral hit helped usher in a new wave of visibility for the industry veteran who has been penning lyrics for her fellow artists (Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Pitbull) for years. We’ve seen Muni’s peers cover “Hrs & Hrs” as they upload their renditions to various platforms, but some fans have come forward to complain that the track is being overplayed by just about everyone.

Fans have definitely helped give this song extended shelf life as thousands of TikTok videos have been shared, as well. However, after businesses began using the song for promotion purposes, it seems that there are a few people who believe this has caused “Hrs & Hrs” to lose its appeal.

Hollywood Unlocked reposted a tweet that read, “Hrs & Hrs was such a great song until y’all started putting it over videos of you doing lash extensions, feed-in braids, and frying crab legs.” People quickly jumped into the comment section to agree, but JT hopped into the conversation to defend the track.

“NO! ppl haters how else will it get heard,” the City Girls star wrote. “When one person gets tired another person discovers it! Keep playing the song for hrs & hrs! Support our black ppl.” Do you think people are overplaying “Hrs & Hrs?”

Lil Mama Questions Why “So Many Black Women” Are “Bent Over On Social Media”

0

Her comments have been known to cause a stir and a few remarks Lil Mama dropped off recently have sparked a conversation. The rapper has been known to take hits from the public, so Lil Mama is no stranger to facing off with those that disagree with her actions or words. This time, however, it seems that she’s gained equal levels of support and criticism after voicing her opinion about how Black women present themselves on social media.

“It’s So Many Black Women Bent Over on Social Media You would think that sh*t was a Mass Mandate,” she penned on her Instagram Story.

“It Get It, You ‘Grown’…” Lil Mama continued. “EVERYDAY THo? What day are you classy? Just hanging out with the family? Actually Working out?” Screenshots of her post were shared online and some agreed with her, while others came down on Lil Mama for specifically stating that this was a problem for Black women. They argued that women from all backgrounds have exhibited similar behavior.

This topic was reignited by the recent release of Shenseea and Megan Thee Stallion’s collaborative, controversial single “Lick,” which has seen a sweep of backlash for its explicit music video and content. Do you agree with Lil Mama on this hot take?

Woman Snaps Photo To Show Cop’s Reaction To 2 Dogs Along The Road

A police officer was thrust into the spotlight after a woman snapped a photo of him and posted it on social media. Although he didn’t realize anyone was watching, one woman was. When she saw what he did with two dogs on the side of the road, she was compelled to take a picture and show everyone.

Debbie Davis was commuting in the early morning hours on the 71 highway in Kansas City, Missouri, when she and others saw an officer of the law involved in an act along the side of the road that quickly caught their attention and made them slow down for a closer look.

First, passersby likely noticed the police motorcycle sitting to the side of the roadway. The cop, who it belonged to, was off in the grass, but he wasn’t alone. Seeing this, Debbie grabbed her camera as she realized what the cop was doing with what appeared to be two stray dogs.

Debbie took a photo she had captured of the officer with the dogs and posted it on social media, where it immediately went viral as people hailed the cop a hero — and for good reason. Apparently, on that cold morning, the officer was engaged in a moment of sincere kindness that would impact quite a few people as well as two dogs that had escaped from the safety of their yard.

The humble police officer, who did not wish to be identified, was seen in Debbie’s image below, sitting on the side of the road on a grassy knoll, off a ramp that leads to 75th Street, Fox4KC explains. Along with him were two lost dogs, one a Shephard mix and the other a Husky, as he waited with the friendly pups for the Humane Society to arrive.

“Saw these two this morning on the off ramp to 75th street northbound 71highway. Both were laying with the Kc cop until someone could get out there to pick them up. Husky had red collar. Couldn’t see collar on fuzzy black dog. Hopefully someone recognizes them!” Debbie wrote when she posted the image to the Kansas City, Missouri Lost & Found Paws Facebook page.

The police officer could have called in the dogs to the Humane Society and gone about his day, but instead, he stayed with the canines to ensure they made it to safety, waiting for them to be picked up. This gesture had many calling him a hero. The dogs, who happen to be named Leonidas and Bear, would likely agree.

“As I pull up, it’s a motorcycle cop sitting in the cold grass with two stray — or what appears to be stray dogs, just sitting there petting them,” Davis recalled, adding that she feels the officer went above and beyond his call of duty. “It’s over and above for anyone. It’s cold. Most people wouldn’t look twice at some dogs running around,” she said.

Thanks to this police officer, Bear and Leonidas were eventually safely returned to their owners, Austin and Ashley Mozingo, who couldn’t be happier to be reunited with their lost pooches.

“It was heartbreaking when you see him in a cage, but then, it’s relief, when you know you can take him home with you,” Ashley said, adding that she likes the photo of her pups with the police officer. “It’s adorable,” she said. “He’s just chillin’ with them.”

“I think that’s an awesome story,” Austin added. “It’s good to know there are still police officers out there who still enjoy helping out the community, especially in helping out such sweet dogs.” We couldn’t agree more. We tip our hats to this officer for a job well done.

Mom Sends Boy To Daycare With Note In Lunchbox, Teacher Responds

When a mother packed her 5-year-old son’s lunchbox and placed a note inside, she never expected a response. When her child returned home, however, the mom found that the boy’s teacher had a few words for her. It didn’t end well.

Francesca Easdon — the mother of a 5-year-old boy named Kyler, who had attended Rocking Horse Day Care Center in Kingwood, Texas for three years — never had a problem with the school until she placed a supportive note in her son’s lunchbox to “make him smile at lunch time” one day. Instead of receiving smiles, however, the mother was left in “absolute shock” to see her son’s teacher had responded to the note.

“Please tell Kyler that his mommy loves him so much and I’m thinking about him. Thank you,” Francesca’s lunchbox note read. The mom explained why she decided to send the correspondence, telling ABC’s Houston station KTRK, “I wrote this note just so at lunchtime he would have something that would make him happy and I am thinking about him.” Seems innocent enough, right? Sadly, things took a turn.

Rather than fulfill the mother’s request, the teacher decided to write back with a demand of her own. At the bottom of Francesca’s note, the teacher scrawled a mean message, which read “No! Put him on a diet and go away!” according to ABC News, and it left Francesca in disbelief. The unbelievable reply from the teacher stunned the mom, and for good reason.

“It took a minute to register, what I even saw and I just kept re-reading it and I just stood there for a minute,” Francesca recalled. In a Facebook post, Francesca admitted that her son is a picky eater but said she had been introducing healthier options for his lunch, even though she felt her son was “absolutely perfect the way he is.”

“We have been working with [my son] on his eating, he’s extremely picky! I have been introducing new healthy options in his lunchbox and discussed the changes with his school,” Francesca shared in her post on social media, detailing the incident. “And for the record, I feel that [my son] is perfect the way he is, I’m just helping him make healthier choices.”

Sadly, his teacher obviously disagreed with the mom, as evidenced by her note, but it might have been something she should have kept to herself. “Instead of his school being supportive I am in absolute shock at what happened,” Francesca went on to explain in her post. “I was absolutely livid and immediately reached out to the school,” she added, explaining she had gone to the school for a meeting with the director, along with her mother-in-law.

A school administrator told the concerned mother that the incident would be investigated and handled appropriately, but for Francesca, only one course of action was acceptable. She wanted the teacher fired. “When I asked them what are you planning to do about this … I let them know right then that the only resolution is that that person that wrote the note should be terminated,” Francesca said.

“The thing that upset me the most is that this is bullying,” the upset mom said, according to Daily Mail. Thankfully, Francesca Easdon’s wish was granted. After confessing to having written the note, the teacher was subsequently fired and a director at the daycare said he was sorry for the incident. The mother was still upset, however, saying that neither the teacher nor the school showed any remorse.

“I am disgusted that I put my trust in these people to care for my child and this is what I get in return,” Francesca admitted. “I’m extremely hands-on with my child’s care and still didn’t see this coming. Monitor your daycares closely and stay away from this facility, they do NOT deserve the privilege of teaching our children.”

While speaking with reporters, Francesca took aim with the teacher directly, lambasting the unkind behavior that the educator had displayed towards her child. “To know a grown-up, who knows how hard life is and how mean people can be, can say something like that, especially about a child is — they’re sick,” she said, according to Newsner. “There’s something wrong.”

Something wrong, indeed. When a parent has to drop their child off at daycare, they assume they are leaving them in a safe, secure, nurturing, and kind environment, where they will grow and learn. We don’t expect their teachers to bully them with unsolicited criticism. If the teacher was truly concerned about the boy’s health and well-being, there’s a time, place, and method of addressing it. This wasn’t it.

Rather than handling her alleged concerns in a caring and professional manner, this rude teacher showed just how unkind she could be towards an innocent child. She also set a very bad example for the children in her care. Mature people do not address issues with a nasty note in a child’s lunchbox. While it’s perfectly acceptable to approach one another with concerns, it should be done tastefully — and this educator failed miserably.

When a mother packed her 5-year-old son’s lunchbox and placed a note inside, she never expected a response. When her child returned home, however, the mom found that the boy’s teacher had a few words for her. It didn’t end well.

Francesca Easdon — the mother of a 5-year-old boy named Kyler, who had attended Rocking Horse Day Care Center in Kingwood, Texas for three years — never had a problem with the school until she placed a supportive note in her son’s lunchbox to “make him smile at lunch time” one day. Instead of receiving smiles, however, the mother was left in “absolute shock” to see her son’s teacher had responded to the note.

“Please tell Kyler that his mommy loves him so much and I’m thinking about him. Thank you,” Francesca’s lunchbox note read. The mom explained why she decided to send the correspondence, telling ABC’s Houston station KTRK, “I wrote this note just so at lunchtime he would have something that would make him happy and I am thinking about him.” Seems innocent enough, right? Sadly, things took a turn.

Rather than fulfill the mother’s request, the teacher decided to write back with a demand of her own. At the bottom of Francesca’s note, the teacher scrawled a mean message, which read “No! Put him on a diet and go away!” according to ABC News, and it left Francesca in disbelief. The unbelievable reply from the teacher stunned the mom, and for good reason.

“It took a minute to register, what I even saw and I just kept re-reading it and I just stood there for a minute,” Francesca recalled. In a Facebook post, Francesca admitted that her son is a picky eater but said she had been introducing healthier options for his lunch, even though she felt her son was “absolutely perfect the way he is.”

“We have been working with [my son] on his eating, he’s extremely picky! I have been introducing new healthy options in his lunchbox and discussed the changes with his school,” Francesca shared in her post on social media, detailing the incident. “And for the record, I feel that [my son] is perfect the way he is, I’m just helping him make healthier choices.”

Sadly, his teacher obviously disagreed with the mom, as evidenced by her note, but it might have been something she should have kept to herself. “Instead of his school being supportive I am in absolute shock at what happened,” Francesca went on to explain in her post. “I was absolutely livid and immediately reached out to the school,” she added, explaining she had gone to the school for a meeting with the director, along with her mother-in-law.

A school administrator told the concerned mother that the incident would be investigated and handled appropriately, but for Francesca, only one course of action was acceptable. She wanted the teacher fired. “When I asked them what are you planning to do about this … I let them know right then that the only resolution is that that person that wrote the note should be terminated,” Francesca said.

“The thing that upset me the most is that this is bullying,” the upset mom said, according to Daily Mail. Thankfully, Francesca Easdon’s wish was granted. After confessing to having written the note, the teacher was subsequently fired and a director at the daycare said he was sorry for the incident. The mother was still upset, however, saying that neither the teacher nor the school showed any remorse.

“I am disgusted that I put my trust in these people to care for my child and this is what I get in return,” Francesca admitted. “I’m extremely hands-on with my child’s care and still didn’t see this coming. Monitor your daycares closely and stay away from this facility, they do NOT deserve the privilege of teaching our children.”

While speaking with reporters, Francesca took aim with the teacher directly, lambasting the unkind behavior that the educator had displayed towards her child. “To know a grown-up, who knows how hard life is and how mean people can be, can say something like that, especially about a child is — they’re sick,” she said, according to Newsner. “There’s something wrong.”

Cardi B Defeats Tasha K In High-Profile Libel Lawsuit

0

Back in 2019, Cardi B launched a lawsuit against the likes of gossip blogger Tasha K, who reportedly posted content that was claiming some wild stuff about Cardi. Essentially, Tasha K was alleging that Cardi had multiple sexually transmitted infections and that she was also a prostitute. The entire saga was very damaging for Cardi’s mental health, as last week, she noted that there were times in which she felt suicidal over the whole thing.

Over the last week, Cardi has been in court for the lawsuit trial. According to TMZ, Cardi ended up winning the libel suit, which means she will get at least $1 million from Tasha K. Needless to say, the gossip blogger is in for some financial despair given the ruling in court today.

The total sum of punitive damages has yet to be determined, although a judge is expected to make a ruling on that soon. Either way, this is a huge win for Cardi who was victimized by some pretty frivolous reporting. With this ruling in mind, other blogs will be thinking twice before publishing stories that A, aren’t true, and B, could cause irreparable harm to someone’s reputation.

This is still a developing story, so stay tuned to HNHH as we will be sure to bring you all of the latest updates from the hip-hop world.
