ATTENTION, PLEASE.

A few of you who are following me have been informed of the abusive situation I recently removed myself from. I have remained rather civil in regards to actively calling said abuser out for their actions, and I was planning for it to stay that way.

Until today, when I found out that my past abuser is now suing my roommate Tristan (tumblr user suckmyrichardgrayson) and I for a lump sum of around $4,000. Each.
They seem to believe that my roommate and I are still in possession of some of their stuff, but as per the instructions of the protection order that is now in place for us against them, we returned all of their belongings on Saturday, January 24th 2015. Officers were present, and they collected everything on their “approved list” from the judge (as well as a few things that were not on the list that we surrendered to them anyway.)

Earlier today, I noticed a reblog of a commission post of theirs, claiming that they need money to pay the bills. They’ve been asking their parents, grandparents, and friends for money since we removed them from our home in December of 2014.

PLEASE, DO NOT GIVE THEM MONEY. They are using the money that they earn from commissions and donations to pay for THIS. They’re using it to harass and continue to abuse me, and cause my roommates dire amounts of anxiety over money.

Their URL is mochi-x-kun. As far as we know, the criminal charges against them are still pending. They are living with their parents, and have no actual bills to pay with this money. Any money that they aren’t using to harass us will most likely be used frivolously. I know this from personal experience (I lived with them for over 2 years.)

They’re not thanking God for this Friday’s.

Nearly all of the black waitstaff at a Manhattan TGI Friday’s were replaced with light-skinned workers — mostly Hispanics — when the chain closed a busy Midtown outpost and opened a new store a block away, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday in Bronx Supreme Court.

Just one black staff member from the eatery near Penn Station was rehired when the company moved to a new location one block east on 34th St. in December, ex-employees charge in the class action discrimination suit.

When the workers protested, a restaurant manager told one of them that he preferred Hispanic staffers because they “work harder,” the suit alleges.

“It was their opinion that black people were lazy,” charged plaintiff Lisa Baker, 48, a waitress who says her old manager told her that her job serving guests was unavailable at the new location. “We weren’t even given a chance.”

Managers openly referred to the old location as “the ghetto store,” or the “black Friday’s,” and wanted to rid themselves of that reputation, the suit alleges.

Former employees said they were promised a fair shot at reapplying for jobs at the new restaurant, a 15,000-square-foot franchise on 34th St., but never heard from their old employers.

Plaintiffs Tony Pringle (l.) and Odeine Francois say they were among TGI Fridays waitstaff who were fired from their jobs when restaurant closed in Midtown. In lawsuit, they claim the eatery hired light-skinned workers when it opened about a block away.
“They knew exactly what they were doing,” said plaintiff Tony Pringle, 42, who earned $850 a week as a waiter at the old location and was not rehired. “They were basically not hiring blacks.”

A spokesman for Friday’s owners, National Restaurants Management Inc. — a family-run business long known as the Reise Organization — said the company “is proud of its 75-year tradition of positive employee relations with a diverse workforce.”

“The restaurant in question has a workforce, including managers, that is more than 80% non-white,” spokesman Pat Smith said in a statement.

Lawyers for the former waitstaff are seeking $500,000 for each employee — a total of $5 million — for “loss of wages, emotional distress and punitive damages.”

“The only reason these people are not working right now is because of their skin,” lawyer Matthew Blit said. “Heck, this isn’t the 1950’s.”

Paris wasn’t kidding about suing Fox News over its Islamophobic “reporting” 

Three weeks after Mayor Anne Hidalgo announced that the City of Lights would take Fox News to court over irresponsible reporting in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the Paris city council has voted in favor of a lawsuit that charges the news organization with besmirching the “honor of Paris.”

[NEWS] "All of B.A.P suing their company for 'Slave Contracts'."

[X-Sports News = Han Ingu reporter] All six members of B.A.P are filing a lawsuit to nullify their contracts with their company. According to the law offices, the B.A.P. members filed the lawsuit against TS Entertainment at the western Seoul law offices on the 26th of this month.

B.A.P.’s exclusive contracts with their company were formed in March of 2011, they’re taking the position that their contracts were only beneficial to their company and have been nothing but unfair to the members.

Their contracts’ clause stating that their contract period would last a minimum of seven years from their first album (rather than the date they signed their contract) is much longer than comparable contracts from other companies. Also their statement claims that the contracts do not follow the laws in place protecting the civil rights, explicit concent, right to personal privacy, etc. of entertainers from their companies.

It also includes a statement claiming the division of their income is only beneficial to the company, and they have had to deal with clauses putting them at a disadvantage in case of cancelling the contract or damages to the company.

Despite their unfair contract, since their debut in January of 2012 B.A.P. has released a total of 11 different albums and held concerts all around the world in Korea, Japan, China and even as far away as Mexico, and although the members have dealt with declining health have done their best for their fans.

Although we (the reporter) have attempted contact with TS to hear their side of the story, we have not been successful.

[NEWS] B.A.P Slaves Contract: More Information

Since their debut, B.A.P has been working endlessly without a break and it has caused the members to suffer mentally and physically. They’ve made several requests to TS Entertainment, asking for a break, but they refused. Last month, one of the members fainted, suffering from stress and exhaustion. He was rushed to the hospital. But a staff from TS Entertainment came and took the member to Changwon to perform on stage. Also, B.A.P informed staff about their worsening health conditions and that it’s impossible to perform in China (MBC KOREAN MUSIC WAVE IN BEIJING). But TS Entertainment ignored the members. The members had health related documents to prove their health. One of the staff from TS Entertainment told the members, “if you guys don’t make it to China, the broadcast company and other related "companies of the event will file a lawsuit against us. You guys will be responsible of all consequences," and forced the members to attend the event. As result, B.A.P had no other choice but to perform in China and Mexico.”
