Three days after what appears to be one of the most talked about Halftime Shows in Super Bowl history, Beyonce continues to get her name slandered for what some felt was an “attack” against law enforcement. The latest to express their disinterest in the “Formation” performance is online news host Tomi Lahren, who bashed Beyonce for choosing to celebrate “a group that used violence and intimidation to advance not racial equality but an overthrow of White domination.” “They didn’t believe in change through peace – they promoted violence instead. So Congratulations, Beyonce. You made your statement, you should be proud of yourself,” Tomi added sarcastically.
During the “Final Thoughts” clip Lahren also claims the “privileged” singer did it just “to get attention.” She then compared Beyonce to other prominent figures in Black culture who “just can’t let America heal” before pointing the finger at Jay Z. “Your husband was a drug dealer,” Tomi pointed out. “For 14 years he sold crack-cocaine – talk about protecting Black neighborhoods. Start at home.”

The iconic horror anthology series Tales From the Crypt is coming back to TV from one of our most polarizing filmmakers. M. Night Shyamalan will produce the reboot as part of new horror-centric block that’s coming to TNT. Shyamalan will curate the two-hour block’s combination of long and short form programming, with Tales from the Crypt being the centerpiece. “I couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with Kevin Reilly, Sarah Aubrey and the entire TNT team in this unique endeavor,” Shyamalan said in a news release. “To be part of such a beloved brand like Tales From the Crypt, something I grew up watching, and to also have the chance to push the boundaries of genre television as a whole, is an inspiring opportunity that I can’t wait to dive into.” Other shows are expected to be announced in the coming months. Though it began in other mediums, Tales from the Crypt became a household name when it ran from 1989 through 1996 on HBO. It had legions of fans who not only loved the show’s host, the Cryptkeeper, but its twisted tales of gore and fear.
