Woman has Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath break up with her boyfriend, and it might just be the best breakup ever

A two-minute video of Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath breaking up with a woman's boyfriend for her has gone viral. The video was made using an app called Cameo, which allows regular schmoes to pay celebrities to record video messages in exchange for a small sum. Cheyanne, the woman who the video is "from" payed McGrath $100 to deliver the devastating news to her boyfriend, Bradyn.

"This is a little difficult for me to say cause it's the first one of these I've done but [Cheyanne] wants you to know that you mean a lot to her — you mean the world to her — but she's having difficulty staying in this long-distance relationship," McGrath says in the video.


McGrath tried to give advice from his own life. "It's tough. I've been on the road for years, and I've been with my wife a long time, and the biggest arguments, the biggest obstacles in our relationship is the distance between us," he explained. "It makes it very difficult when we're on the road and it's hard."

McGrath tried to let Bradyn down easy. "She still wants to be friends with you, and she wants you to know, good luck on your thesis coming up — probably not the best timing, Cheyenne, when he's doing his thesis, but I understand!" he continued.

Twitter was all about it.





There's more to the story. Apparently, Cheyanne and Bradyn got back together… only to break up again. This time via former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was the bearer of bad news. "Life goes on. There will be another door opening," says Scaramucci in the Cameo video. Scaramucci said that Bradyn can think "about me getting my ass shot up at the White House and blown to pieces in my life" whenever he has a rough day.

"Yeah, my wife basically threatened for divorce, which took a while for me to repair that as well. So, truth of the matter is, take one day at a time," he continued.

The videos seem almost too funny to be true, and it turns out they're not. The videos were a prank from Hunter Shabazz. "I just thought the idea of using celebrities to break really sensitive news is pretty funny. The names were Bradyn and Cheyanne (spelled as such) because I thought these names really reflected people who would break up over cameo and also still be really into Sugar Ray," Shabazz explained to the Huffington Post.

McGrath said he knew it was a joke, but decided to play along.


Hopefully, they both still got their hundos for the videos.

These videos are hilarious, but ultimately serve as a reminder that the viral video everyone is sharing might not always be true, no matter how much we want Mark McGrath to actually go around doing people's dirty work.

Thomas F. Wilson played one of the most recognizable villains in film history, Biff Tannen, in the "Back to the Future" series. So, understandably, he gets recognized wherever he goes for the iconic role.

The attention must be nice, but it has to get exhausting answering the same questions day in and day out about the films. So Wilson created a card that he carries with him to hand out to people that answers all the questions he gets asked on a daily basis.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected diverse communities due largely in part to social factors such as inadequate access to housing, income, dietary options, education and employment — all of which have been shown to affect people's physical health.

Recognizing that inequity, Harlem-based chef JJ Johnson sought out to help his community maximize its health during the pandemic — one grain at a time.

Johnson manages FIELDTRIP, a health-focused restaurant that strives to bring people together through the celebration of rice, a grain found in cuisines of countless cultures.

"It was very important for me to show the world that places like Harlem want access to more health-conscious foods," Johnson said. "The people who live in Harlem should have the option to eat fresh, locally farmed and delicious food that other communities have access to."

Lack of education and access to those healthy food options is a primary driver of why 31% of adults in Harlem are struggling with obesity — the highest rate of any neighborhood in New York City and 7% higher than the average adult obesity rate across the five boroughs.

Obesity increases risk for heart disease or diabetes, which in turn leaves Harlem's residents — who are 76% Black or LatinX — at heightened risk for complications with COVID-19.

Sometimes a politician says or does something so brazenly gross that you have to do a double take to make sure it really happened. Take, for instance, this tweet from Lauren Witzke, a GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate from Delaware. Witzke defeated the party's endorsed candidate to win the primary, has been photographed in a QAnon t-shirt, supports the conspiracy theory that 9/11 was a U.S. government inside operation, and has called herself a flat earther.

So that's neat.

Witzke has also proposed a 10-year total halt on immigration to the U.S., which is absurd on its face, but makes sense when you see what she believes about immigrants. In a tweet this week, Witzke wrote, "Most third-world migrants can not assimilate into civil societies. Prove me wrong."

First, let's talk about how "civil societies" and developing nations are not different things, and to imply that they are is racist, xenophobic, and wrong. Not to mention, it has never been a thing to refer people using terms like "third-world." That's a somewhat outdated term for developing nations, and it was never an adjective to describe people from those nations even when it was in use.

Next, let's see how Twitter thwapped Lauren Witzke straight into the 21st century by proving her wrong in the most delicious way. Not only did people share how they or their relatives and friends have successfully "assimilated," but many showed that they went way, way beyond that.

There are two conflicting viewpoints when it comes to addressing culture from that past that contains offensive elements that would never be acceptable today.

Some believe that old films, TV shows, music or books with out-of-date, offensive elements should be hidden from public view. While others think they should be used as valuable tools that help us learn from the past.
