Found safe

“Days of Our Lives” actor James Lastovic and his roommate were found safe in Hawaii on Oct. 11 a few days after James’s family reported them missing. The actor’s mom said James and Nevin Dizdari went on a hike at Kokee State Park in Hawaii on Oct. 9. The duo never returned to their hotel that evening. “They were due to fly back today but never made their flight nor returned their rental car,” his mother explained on Instagram. “This is NOT LIKE THEM! They are both consciencious [sic] kids.” James’s mother, Lucienne, told TMZ that James and Nevin’s car had a tracking device but authorities were unable to locate it for some time. Lucienne, who traveled to Hawaii for the search, said her son and Nevin were eventually found safe and sound. “The kids are exhausted, dehydrated and scraped up, but after a good night’s rest and an island pizza I think the world will seem right side up again,” she added.

Terrible tweet

Kanye West stunned the world on Oct. 9 when he posted an antisemitic tweet. “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” he tweeted, an apparent reference to the DEFCON U.S. military readiness condition scale. “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.” Following the tweet, Twitter suspended Ye’s account for violating its policies. Ye then doubled down on his comments on Oct. 12. “Hey, if you call somebody out for bad business, that means you’re being antisemitic. I feel happy to have crossed the line of that idea so we can speak openly about things like getting canceled by a bank,” he told paparazzi.
