Exploding Whipped Cream Canister Kills French Instagram Model

Rebecca Burger, a French Instagram model and lifestyle blogger, has died after a whipped cream container exploded and struck her in the chest. The pressurized whipped cream canister exploded Saturday and caused Burger to enter cardiac arrest, the Washington Post reported. Burger, 33, died in the hospital on Sunday.

“It is with great sadness we announce the death of Rebecca who died June 18th, 2017 in an accident in the home,” a statement from Burger's family on Instagram said. In a separate post, the family shared a photo of the canister and urged others to use caution. “Do not use this kind of utensil in your home!” the family advised. “Several tens of thousands of defective devices are still in circulation.”

Burger shared her passion for fitness, travel, and cuisine with more than 170,000 Instagram fans and nearly 60,000 Facebook followers. On her blog, Burger published photography-accompanied lifestyle writings about her travels, including a recent post on Berlin-based dining recommendations.

Fitness brand Women’s Best paid tribute to “our French athlete” Wednesday. “Rebecca was not only a great fitness figure but a generous and kind person to work with,” the company said. “Please pray for her soul to rest in peace and for her family to stay strong. We will always be proud of you, Rebecca.”

French authorities are now investigating the incident, the Post reported Thursday. Mulhouse prosecutors will determine if the canister's “faulty siphon,” reportedly the same one that was taken off the market in February 2013, was at fault in Burger's death. “Unfortunately, there are still lots of siphons of all brands that remain potentially dangerous,” a rep for Ard'time, the maker of the product, said.

Floyd Mayweather’s First Open Training Session for Conor McGregor Fight Was as Wild as You’d Expect

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have spent the last few months sending shots back and forth at one another to build up the buzz for a potential fight. But now that they’ve agreed to the terms of said fight, it’s time for both of them to get serious about actually preparing for it. There is already enough speculation surrounding the fight, and the last thing either of them needs are rumors about how they’re not putting in the time it’ll take to prepare for what should be the most anticipated sporting event of 2017.

McGregor showed that he’s serious about preparing for the fight earlier this week by showing off a new mural that he had painted in his gym. It depicts him punching Mayweather in the face, and it looks like it’ll be the first thing McGregor sees every time he walks into his gym over the next two months:

McGregor has also posted a ton of training photos on social media in recent weeks, just to show that he’s doing everything in his power to be ready when he steps into the boxing ring with Mayweather:

But make no mistake about it: Mayweather is putting in work, too. Most people are already assuming that he will destroy McGregor when they get into the ring together. But just because he’s heavily favored in the bout doesn’t mean Mayweather is going to take it easy in the gym.

On Wednesday night, Mayweather invited some members of the media to attend his first open training session for the McGregor fight at the Ten Goose Boxing Gym in Los Angeles—and it was, as you might expect, a pretty wild affair. Mayweather’s workout reportedly lasted for four hours and included a visit from NBA star DeMar DeRozan.

Fight Hype was on hand and captured a bunch of videos to document the experience. In this clip, you can see the crowd gathered outside as Mayweather made his grand entrance:

In this one, you can see that Mayweather has avoided packing on any pounds despite being “retired” for nearly two years now:

Here, Mayweather brags about being in great shape even though he's a 40-year-old boxer with more than 20 years of pro boxing experience:

And in this clip posted by TMZ Sports, Mayweather walks around the gym during a brief break in the action talking to himself:

“I can get a black eye, a bloody nose,” he says in the video. “I can have a bad day at the gym. At the end of the day, I don’t have a bad payday, and I don’t have a bad night under the lights. I get bumps, bruises… but I don’t have a bad night.”

Most people are expecting Mayweather to have a great night on Aug. 26 when he fights McGregor, and if he keeps this insane workout regimen up, it’s hard to see him losing.

Chance the Rapper Apologizes for ‘Disrespecting’ Dr. Dre and Aftermath

Chance the Rapper has apologized for “publicly disrespecting” Dr. Dre and Aftermath on his Be Encouraged Tour. In a series of tweets Thursday, Chance said he made a mistake by including images of Dre and the Aftermath label during a segment aimed at satirizing major labels.

“I want to formally apologize to Dr Dre, and all of Aftermath for publicly disrespecting their hard work and contributions to music,” Chance said. “When I went on the Be Encouraged tour I made LED content to satirize and degrade major labels. I made the mistake of including Imprints which not only dulled my overall point of trying to uplift [artists] but also singled out artist-owned ventures that have only worked to progress the culture.”

Chance added that Dre is a great example of someone who's made space for creatives to have ownership in an industry designed to give them the opposite. “I set out to empower and I completely missed the ball and I know that now,” Chance said.

On his Be Encouraged Tour, Chance projected altered versions of major record label names. Aftermath Entertainment, for example, was mockingly referred to as Can't Do Math Entertainment.

Chance's Be Encouraged Tour continues next month in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Internet Blasts Bow Wow for His Message About Women’s Behavior

Bow Wow should do himself a favor and quit social media.

On Tuesday afternoon, the 30-year-old artist received another L after posting an Instagram photo with a caption about women. It read: “Women are suppose to be beautiful and hard to catch like a butterfly… Some of you B*****s are more like mosquitos annoying and easy to smash.” He ended the message with some crying laughing emojis; however, not everyone thought the post was funny.

Some people criticized the caption for being sexist, and said it was another instance in which a man attempts to police women’s actions/behavior. Others called out Bow Wow by suggesting he, too, was a mosquito and was in no position to judge.

“Don't you have anything better to do than tell us women how we're SUPPOSED to behave? Don't you have a flight to catch in coach?” one person commented.

“Remember you have a daughter now. The way you've treated women. Think of how she is gonna be treated,” someone replied. “All these rappers is having girls & I wonder why? Karma dudes. So try to be better & show your girls how to recognize a good dude.”

Another person, however, came to Bow Wow’s defense … sort of: “Ladies, don't be too hard on him. I'm sure he stole this from somewhere/somebody. Dude never wrote his own raps, so I'm sure he didn't think of something as clever as this.”

Well, it turns out Bow Wow did, in fact, steal this message. The quote has lived on the internet for several years and has been turned into countless memes.

Bow Wow has endured plenty of roasting during the past couple of months. There was that time he was called out for trying to trick people into thinking he was flying on a private jet and the time the internet was convinced he posted a fake video of fans chasing him. The dude has attempted to defend both of those posts, but it seems most people aren't buying it.

Prodigy of Mobb Deep Dead at 42

Prodigy, one half of the iconic rap duo Mobb Deep, has passed away at age 42.

The rapper's publicist released a statement on his death, citing complications stemming from his lifelong battle with sickle cell anemia.

It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep. Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family's privacy at this time.

Several prominent members of the Queens hip-hop community took to social media to share the news—and their condolences—on Tuesday afternoon, with Nas and his younger brother Jungle sharing posts on Instagram within minutes of one another.

 

🙏🏾 QB RIP King P

Best known by the average fan as one half of the group responsible for the classic rap record, “Shook Ones Pt. II,” Prodigy was part of countless New York posse cuts and a key figure in the “golden age” of rap in the mid-90s. Thanks to the strength of beloved albums like The Infamous and Hell on Earth, Mobb Deep was at the forefront of New York hip-hop during its most prominent era, standing alongside giants like Nas, the Notorious B.I.G., Wu Tang Clan, and others. 

As part of the city's vanguard, Prodigy was a key figure in the East Coast vs. West Coast battle that overtook hip-hop for the better part of a decade. Along with his partner Havoc, he joined Capone-N-Noreaga and Tragedy Khadafi in the West Coast diss track, “L.A. L.A.,” released just shortly before 2Pac was released from prison. Prodigy's battle with sickle cell anemia later became public knowledge after it was brought up by 2Pac multiple times during their war of words, most notably on “Hit 'Em Up.”

The rapper was forced into a brief hiatus from music due to a stint in prison relating to a gun-possession charge. He would go on to release an autobiography, My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep's Prodigy, before immersing himself in hip-hop once again. More recently, he was responsible for writing a prison cookbook titled Commissary Kitchenin which he shared his path to staying healthy while being behind bars. The book has since been banned in all prisons within the state of California.

Watch LeBron James Spend His Father’s Day Weekend Dunking on His Son’s Friends

No matter what hobby you take up as a child, nearly every son grows up dreaming of surpassing their dad's skills one day. If you and your dad bond over sports, the day when his old-man strength isn't enough to win games of one-on-one is something you look forward to for years.

Unless your dad is LeBron James, in which case you're probably not beating him ever. Games of one-on-one are a little bit different when your pops has a claim as the G.O.A.T. basketball player, and you would be lucky if LeBron just decided to take it easy on you.

It doesn't appear as though he's wired that way. Over Father's Day Weekend, LeBron's son Bryce celebrated his 10th birthday, and his dad helped him do it in style. The James family commissioned several fields for Bryce and his friends to play on, and decked them all out in Nike gear for the occasion.

There was one hefty price to pay for these kids, however—they had to deal with LeBron dominating them in every sport they played. In a video he posted on his Instagram Sunday morning, LeBron showed off highlights of him dunking on kids, catching footballs in traffic, and pelting them all with water balloons.

This may be the most savage athletic beatdown an adult has ever laid on his son's friends. There is absolutely no mercy shown by LeBron here if you roll back the tape. Look at these poor kids as he elevates for a dunk and prepares to put them on a poster.

It doesn't get much better from there. He goes over the middle during a football game at the party, and not only does he appear to catch a touchdown pass, he has the audacity to spike the ball afterwards too. Good luck breaking up a pass with that height discrepancy!

After some touching family moments, LeBron makes sure the video is punctuated with another highlight, and after a pass gets dumped to him in the paint, you already know what time it is.

Don't bring that weak shit to LeBron's house, kids. It may have been a birthday party for Bryce, but LeBron made sure all Bryce's friends remember who the alpha dog is around here.

Michael Phelps Is Really About to Race a Great White Shark

Two of the world's finest athletes will square off in the name of good television. Michael Phelps and an as-yet-unidentified great white shark will race each other for a very special Shark Week event fittingly entitled Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White.

But how does a race between a shark and a human work, exactly? Is Phelps joining Mr. Shark in the ocean, or has Mr. Shark personally challenged Phelps to a showdown at the local Y? A description on the Discovery Channel special provided to Entertainment Weekly Thursday answers none of those questions, but still manages to paint a compelling picture.

“They are one of the fastest and most efficient predators on the planet: Sharks,” the description, which I'm just going to assume was written by a shark, reads. “He is our greatest champion to ever get in the water: Michael Phelps. 39 world records. 23 Olympic golds. But he has one competition left to win. An event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before. The world's most decorated athlete takes on the ocean's most efficient predator: Phelps Vs Shark – The race is on!”

Phelps vs. Shark premieres July 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

 

A post shared by Shark Week (@sharkweek) on Jun 7, 2017 at 9:49am PDT

Phelps will also take part in another Shark Week special in which he essentially gets a makeshift degree in sharkology from the Bimini Shark Lab. The aptly named Shark School will feature Doc Gruber, Tristan Guttridge, and Phelps squashing shark rumors and educating the general public on how to shark-dive the safe way. Catch Shark School July 30.

Draymond Green Takes Shot at Cavs With ‘Quickie’ T-Shirt, LeBron James Claps Back

As you may recall, during his return to Cleveland about a year ago, LeBron James sported an “Ultimate Warrior” shirt as a way to not-so-subtly troll Golden State for beating them in the NBA Finals.

Here's the briefest of reminders:

Fast forward not quite 365 days, and Draymond Green got his not-so-subtle revenge on LeBron/the Cavs for besting them in the re-rematch. Green could be seen sporting a “Quickie” shirt on Thursday afternoon because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery it was an idea he had awhile ago (or so he says in his interview answer above). In case you're unaware, the shirt is mocking Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cavs play their home games. Though it's obvious that the Ultimate Warrior shirt played a role, even without Draymond's confirmation, he also added that those 3-1 R.I.P. cookies from last year's Cavs Halloween party factored in to his decision as well.

“I can't forget the Ultimate Warrior shirt last year from LeBron,” Green explained. “[And] the 3-1 tombstone cookies and all of that, so I was waiting on this moment.” After being asked if, really, he'd been waiting since Halloween to do this, Green responded, “I'm petty. I've been waiting for awhile, just coming up with ideas. I had this crazy idea for a shirt and I waited too long to try and get somebody to draw it up. It was a bit much though.”

One can only imagine what that was.

As for LeBron, he quickly responded with an Instagram pic where he made fun of Green's sex game… or something. He also chose an angle where Draymond isn't exactly looking his most svelte:

 

…. That's what she said, HUH?!?!? 🤔🤔😂😂.

A post shared by LeBron James (@kingjames) on Jun 15, 2017 at 12:13pm PDT

Draymond also responded with this new pic of LeBron's shaved head:

 

Them dubs finally made him go bald!!! Congrats bro @kingjames

A post shared by Draymond Green (@money23green) on Jun 15, 2017 at 12:38pm PDT

Not a whole lot to do for the next few months.

A few hours later, even after the exchanging of semi-harsh IG shots, Draymond called out LeBron's recent comments (which were uttered after the Finals concluded) where he said he doesn't think he's ever played for a “superteam”:

Yeesh.

Rob Stone Addresses XXXTentacion Situation: ‘It’s Only Going to Get Worse’

Most people are still struggling with how to pronounce XXXTentacion's name, let alone decipher the beef between he and Rob Stone. But after XXX got knocked out at a San Diego show, allegations have been flying about the aftermath of the brawl that took place at his show.

A concertgoer was stabbed in the ruckus following the on-stage sucker punch, and during an interview with TMZ last Thursday, XXX claimed the victim in question was his attacker, though local police disputed that premise. Rumors continued to swirl about the stabbing victim and any possible affiliation with Stone, and eventually the San Diego native saw fit to address the claims himself.

“I'm alive and well,” he said. “I didn't get stabbed, I didn't get stabbed, OK, I'm alive and well, just for all the people that was concerned about me getting stabbed. All my homies is alive and well, I don't know what the fuck that's about. But I feel bad for the person that did get stabbed.”

After establishing that the stabbing victim was not affiliated with him, Stone continued on, and seemed to send a direct message to XXX despite taking steps to make it sound like it was directed at a broader group of people. 

“This shit is just getting crazy, and it's only going to get worse,” he said. “You can not sit and talk shit about people, or talk shit to people, y'all can't do that shit. I'm talking to everybody in the world right now, I'm not talking to a specific person. You can not sit and talk shit to motherfuckers and go to their city and not expect somebody in the city to feel some type of way about that.”

It's not immediately clear when or where the video emerged from; there's no trace of it on Stone's social feeds, but addressing the stabbing rumors in particular makes it appear as though it is from some point this past weekend, following a new diss track from Stone aimed at XXX. 

As much as the on-stage knockout made for great meme fodder, let's hope things don't continue to escalate from here. It's one thing to trade shots on wax and on social media, but once someone resorts to physical violence, it's all downhill from there.

You can watch the full video below, and judge how serious the threat could be for yourself.

XXXTentacion Show Postponed After Brawl and Stabbing Incident

When it comes to controversy in 2017, XXXTentacion's name has been in the thick of it. The latest incident involved XXX getting knocked tf out on stage during his San Diego show at The Observatory on Wednesday night. While still unconfirmed, many (including X himself) seem to speculate that one of his rivals, San Diego-based rapper Rob Stone, was involved in the altercation. Whatever the case may be, X isn't letting this incident stop his tour, and as early as Thursday afternoon wasn't planning on stopping his scheduled show in Santa Ana.

 

#xxxtentacion earlier today before his show got cancelled (link in bio for more details)

A post shared by DJ Akademiks (@akadmiks) on Jun 8, 2017 at 7:11pm PDT

That's right, X was openly asking to be knocked out again, saying “let's have a repeat” at the Santa Ana show that was scheduled for Thursday night. Whether it was because of his attitude, the melee that ensued in San Diego after he got knocked out, or the fact that X didn't plan on hiring more security guards (he told TMZ that more guards wouldn't matter because the person who knocked him out had already gotten past 12 people), the promoters of the Santa Ana show on Thursday night decided to postpone the gig.

A post shared by DJ Akademiks (@akadmiks) on Jun 8, 2017 at 7:13pm PDT

According to XXXTentacion, the Santa Ana show is being rescheduled to the end of his tour. There's been no word on the rescheduled date at this time.

TMZ also reported that while X's face was swollen, X said that the assailant got even worse. They also say that whoever attacked X fled the scene, and isn't the person who was brought into the hospital after being stabbed. At this time, no suspect has been named in the knocking tf out of XXXTentacion in San Diego.
