Artists Behind Bisexual Superman Comic Reportedly Need Police Protection After Receiving Backlash And Threats

Published

on

The studio and some of the artists behind a DC comic in which the new Superman comes out as bisexual have reportedly received LAPD protection amid threats.

LAPD officers “were recently dispatched to patrol the homes of” illustrators and production staffers behind a comic that reveals Jon Kent, DC’s new Superman, is bisexual, TMZ reports.

Angry fans “inundated the studios” behind the comic to complain about the announcement and make threats, and the studios subsequently called the LAPD, “requesting for patrols to keep an eye out,” the report says.

According to TMZ, “nothing legitimate came from the threats” and the “situation has since settled down.”

DC Comics announced in October that Jon Kent, the son of Clark Kent who has taken over the mantle of Superman from his father, in a new issue of Superman: Son of Kal-El would come out as bisexual and begin a same-sex relationship.

Art from the issue showed Jon sharing a kiss with reporter Jay Nakamura.

Writer Tom Taylor told The New York Times the “idea of replacing Clark Kent with another straight white savior felt like a missed opportunity” and “for so many people having the strongest superhero in comics come out is incredibly powerful.”

“I Liked It More When My Life Was Mine” : Black Sherif Writes

Published

Popular Ghanaian Hiplife/Trap superstar, Mohammed Ismail Sherif, often known as Black Sherif, may be feeling pressured by the celebrity lifestyle because one cannot live according to his own will longer but by the will of others, as he laments that he wishes his life was his.

One of the drawbacks of being a public figure is that people get to tell you how you should conduct your life. Fans on social media will always be harshly critical of famous personalities if they fail to achieve their expectations.

Well, Black Sherif, who exploded into the scene and is now regarded as one of Ghana’s top young acts, has regretted the fact that his previous life used to be his best because it became a routine for him to avoid severe criticism from the public.

According to him, he felt safe being himself and the people around him, but he thinks that his new lifestyle will allow him to rediscover himself.

This comes after the musician was supposed to have walked out of school and enrolled in a different institution because he thought he was being left behind.

He wrote;

“I Like It More When My Life Was Mine. When I Used To Enjoy Living In Fear Because It Became My Routine. When I Felt Safe Being Real. Hopefully, I Sail Through These All To Meet A New Me. Good Luck Kwaku, Keep Going”.

Cristiano Ronaldo ‘To Face A 25 Per Cent Pay Cut Next Season Should Man Utd Fail To Qualify For The Champions League

Published

Cristiano Ronaldo will have his £385,000 a week salary docked by 25 percent next season should Manchester United fail to qualify for the Champions League, according to reports.

The Portuguese striker returned to Old Trafford this summer in a £20million transfer from Juventus, but both he and the club are struggling for form with United currently sitting in seventh place.

The Ralf Rangnick’s squad are two points behind fourth-placed West Ham with a game in hand as they battle for Champions League football.

And according to The Athletic, Ronaldo will see his salary docked if the club cannot breach the gap to fourth-place between now and the end of May.

That would mean Ronaldo’s £385,000 a week wage will be slashed below the £300,000 mark to £288,000 a week – which would be the lowest wage salary the 36-year-old has earned.

Sportsmail revealed last year that Ronaldo accepted a significant drop from the £500,000 a week package he had at Juventus in order to complete his Old Trafford return.

Despite that drop in wage, Ronaldo is still the highest-earning star in Rangnick’s squad, with United goalkeeper David de Gea next on the list on a reported £375,000 a week.

Ronaldo has scored 14 goals in 23 matches since making the move back to United last summer, but only eight of them have come in the Premier League.
