A Girl Is Threatened With Rape In A Rap Battle, And So The Judge Steps In To Deliver His Own Verse

Set scene: A woman is on stage with her male opponent in an MC rap battle in London when all of a sudden the dude makes a rape threat. Not cool at all. The misogynistic dude tries to calm the crowd down as they look on in disgust. Then suddenly up pops visibly pissed-off BBC radio presenter Nihal, who decides to step in and rip into the rape-threat dude with his own, much better verse.I want to be clear on two points before you watch it: 1) The young woman didn't need him to step in, but I'm appreciating this as a "see something, say something" moment, and it's great to see that others have her back in such a hostile environment. 2) The fat-shaming in his verse isn't cool either, and I wish that wasn't in there, but I still appreciate this moment of solidarity and outrage.NSFW language NSFW language NSFW language.

As face masks have become mandatory in many places to limit the spread of coronavirus, it's also become an increasingly politicized thing. As we know, anything that involves political polarization also involves vast amounts of misinformation and disinformation. Whose idea was the internet again?

No one I know loves wearing a mask. We all wish we didn't have to. But there are an awful lot of people saying they can't wear one, or they refuse to wear one because they've been led to believe that masks are somehow more dangerous than not wearing one. I've seen and read "information" on everything from masks depriving people of oxygen to masks causing CO2 build up to masks creating fungus problems.
