It’s crazy Bill Cosby has been charged with a musty old crime while the cop who killed Michael Brown is a free man … so say The Game.
Game says he’s not throwing shade on Bill Cosby’s accusers, but he says there’s no physical evidence proving Cosby did anything and the allegations are in the ancient past.
Game goes on to say, “But Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown on camera, is FREE. George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, is FREE.” He goes on to cite other examples.

There are plenty of rappers I cannot stand. But topping that list might be The Game. After watching him dog his long-time girlfriend out, talk to and about women any kind of way, including some particularly disgusting musings on Erykah Badu, and instruct his entourage to push a woman off the stage when she refused to show him her breasts and spitting on another woman from his spot in VIP, I just have nothing left for him.
Suffice it to say, The Game does not like women, not really.
Still, every once in a while he’ll do something exclusively for the ladies. We all remember those d-ck pictures and the nasty hashtags that came with them. Being that I’m not a fan, I looked but was unfazed. And then when he persisted, I realized that this was more about thirst than it was about trying to do something nice for the women he’s so often belittled.
We shouldn’t be surprised really, The Game has shown us time and time again that he’s not really for us…even when he’s pretending to be.
It happened again.
Today, he posted this on his Instagram, account.
In a world full of insta-famous, 1/2 clothed, airbrush your skin app using, duck lip doing, poke my but out, find the right angle, selfie taking for attention, club hosting for scraps, 500k followers with no morals having women, you're lucky if you find her…. & if you do, crown her… for she is YOUR QUEEN. One time for the working class women, the single mothers grinding that 9-5 as well as the future, doctors, lawyers, teachers etc… who value their self worth & just finished finals & are glad to finally be on Christmas break cause they worked so hard this semester to get closer to achieving their dreams….. This ones for you 👑 #itsGottaFeelGoodToHaveACareerOtherThanWaistTrainingTeaDrinkinOrTeethWhitening 😂✌🏾️
Before he issues a compliment to one set of women, he takes the time to berate “the others,” calling out Insta-famous, 1/2 clothed, poke my butt out, selfie taking for attention women. And that’s the short version.
If I didn’t know any better I would swear The Game was talking about himself. Let’s just be honest, these days we know The Game more for his reality show shenanigans (He knew he had no intention of marrying that Tiffney.) his clapback game on social media and the pictures he posts of his penis print. That’s it. So the fact he wants to talk about half-clothed attention-seeking is laughable. Not to mention the fact that the little cartoon characters are also naked.
Then, he turns his attention to the “good women.” The lawyers and teachers who are educated and achieving their dreams. As if someone with a college degree just couldn’t be shallow, half naked and attention seeking.
But aside from that, there’s the fact that The Game himself had one of these so-called good ones. Tiffney Cambridge, his former fiancée and mother of his children, was a teacher herself. And taking her through season after season of a tv show where he only claimed he was going to marry her and allegations of abuse, The Game did anything but crown her.
All of this is yet another way men like to blow smoke up our a–es, so they can control us with these impossible-to-reach standards. The notion is that if we can check off all of the listed requirements then surely we’ll get the title, the ring, the crown or hell, maybe even something radical like respect. But ask Tiffney how that worked out for her…and she took it a step further by giving The Game two beautiful children.
And Tiffney is not the only one. Before her, there was Valeisha Butterfield, the daughter of a Congressman. Butterfield is a author activist and political strategist. She was voted one Essence’s top 40 executives under 40. And how did The Game treat her? None of us can really say but the two called off their engagement in 2006. The first of his three children was born during their relationship in 2003.
So, while over 90 thousand people liked this post and women were thanking him all up and down the comment section, I would advise y’all to beware of The Game and men like him who love to tell women how to live their lives, as if they’ve figured out the answer to be a good woman in this world.
Put some clothes on and figure out your own situation before you try to criticize and crown women through Instagram but not through action.
Update: And if you need any more evidence of his lunacy, check out how he responded to this very civil critique of his Instagram post.
These celebrity men have been working it out and tightening it up. Now they want to know, are they on your radar yet?
As with most things in life, people sure know how to run things into the ground.
I remember back in January when B.O.B. posted a picture of himself in his sweatpants, clearly forgoing underwear, showing off his penis to his Instagram followers, many who happen to be women. I’m not going to lie; I was impressed. And while he’s not the first to share a peen-print pic, his image, with the caption #eggplantfriday, set off a chain reaction that encouraged men, famous and broke ones alike, to share their junk on the social network. Soon after, some gentlemen took it to the next, next level, and started sharing images of their bare junk. And just like that, Instagram shut it all down.
The lesson? When you start doing too much, you ruin a good thing.
And that’s a lesson The Game probably needs to learn.
Sure, #eggplantfriday was banished into the nether regions of Instagram’s infamous hashtag pile, but Game wasn’t afraid to revive it. In fact, he’s never been shy about showing off his body and trying to entice his many female followers with his #FineN—aFriday posts. If you’ve seen those posts, then you already know that the hashtags he includes can be pretty explicit.
Anywho, he shared an image three weeks ago of himself in some tight blue boxers, which showed every inch and every detail of his business. The Internet went wild. The ladies had to fan themselves. And even the brand behind the boxers he wore saw a 500 percent increase in sales through the simple selfie.
And then The Game started feeling himself.
After that, his peen-print pics became a weekly thing, which he’s done three weeks straight, and now Instagram is fed up. I think I know why.
Remember those explicit hashtags I told you about? Well, that’s an understatement. They’re almost like soft-core porn with Game playing a phone sex operator. For each peen-print pic, there is a hashtag that says something like this, and I quote:
“#LickYourIndexAndMiddleFingers #Now TouchThatPearlTongueAndGoCounterClockwise”
Depending on what you like, such hashtags either turned you on or gave you a troll vibe. For me, I was turned off…and I couldn’t really figure out why. I mean, The Game is a very handsome man.
But Instagram was also turned off. According to TMZ, those behind the social network said they may shut down The Game’s account, just like they did Rihanna’s old one, if he keeps on posting his scandalous pictures with their sexually explicit captions. They don’t want another inappropriate movement of sorts to begin.
And instead of taking heed, The Game is actually irritated by such warnings. He posted this video and message on IG:
@tmz_tv calls me to give me the scoop……. Shit been up for a month, now y'all threatening niggas lol #KanyeShrug #YouAPhoneAppButYouStillLikeTheSausage 😂😂😂😂😂😂 #ProbablyLilWeeWeeNiggasReportingIt #YoDaddyJustWasntPackinSoGeneticallyYourLifeFuckedUp #MyDaddyWasADragonSlayerOutHereAndItGotPassedDownToMe #MyGrandaddyWasASeaMonsterKiller #ItRunsInTheFamily #TaylorMeatPackingCompany #MEATPRINTPAPI has spoken….. Now back to this Daddy thing I'm doing over here…. #HatersGoneHatePotatosGonePotate lmaoooo…. So if my account mysteriously disappear, IG hatin on a player & I'll be on snap chat for the duration: "blackb0yfly" & if they do delete it…. All my women fans, post it in the name of my Instagram memory #LongLiveTheDingALingKing #UnBothered
And he also told TMZ that he feels like he’s a victim of a cruel double standard. I mean, he is the self-proclaimed “DingALingKing.” Why is it that Kim Kardashian can show off her bare bottom (as she did after revealing her Paper spread last November and so many other times before), and he can’t post a few meat-print pics?
And that’s where he really lost me.
Out of all the causes to champion, you fight for the right to bear penis on social media?
Considering the many things men get away with in comparison to women, whether it’s the freedom to be sexually explorative, or in Game’s case, the freedom to be able to give the world a peek at your reproductive organs without someone calling you a whore, he’s just being petty.
And as someone just as petty, just like that, it hit me why his photos slowly lost his appeal in my eyes, and why I can’t agree with his grievances over Instagram’s alleged issue with his peen pics. It all reeks of thirst.
He’s not trying to show off his penis for the sake of some art. He just wants to get on IG once a week and get a thrill enticing women he’ll never meet. He wants to be your eye candy. Your personal porn star. In Tina’s words, “your private dancer.” He wants you to play with yourself to his images, and he makes a committed weekly effort to provide you with that stimulation. Some might call it sexy. Others might call it dedication. I call it thirst.
And that’s the reality of it all. Social media has not only brought out the worst in a lot of people, but it has also brought out the thirst. And anyone can be thirsty. Rich men like Game and just-making-it dudes like the guy I played in the band with who stays in his briefs talking about he’s looking for “real love.” Women as wealthy as Kim Kardashian as well as popular Instagram models can be thirsty. And yes, even you. When you set up thirst traps for people you claim are thirsty, you too are dying of thirst–in the form of attention. It doesn’t look good on men or women, young or old.
I’m all for images of transformed bodies and hard work paying off, but silent videos of you giving the world a front-row seat into the curves of your breasts? Images of you holding on to your penis while staring longingly in the mirror? Vines of folks intently twerking in booty shorts with their leg up on the bathroom toilet? When that becomes what you look forward to during the week and what you fight to share, the thirst is real.
And that’s why The Game needs to leave all this alone. Fighting for the right to take selfies in your undergarments kind of makes your forget that he’s supposed to be a rapper. That he has an actual talent to share. That he actually just released an album, which he’s not promoting in those peen pics. But alas, as my good friend put it, this is what happens “When you give a lame dude attention.” They start doing way too much and ruin what was once a really good-looking thing.
If you were on social media at all last week, there’s a good chance you stumbled across photos of Jayceon “The Game” Taylor posing in two pair of Ethika men’s underwear that put his sizeable man print on Front Street.
It seems laughable to think that with all that was going on in the photographs, someone actually stopped to research the brand of underwear he was wearing, but apparently, they did. So much so that Ethika reported seeing a more than 500% increase in sales for the two particular styles that the Compton rapper was wearing.
According to TMZ, The Game doesn’t have any sort of standing business partnership with Ethika aside from the fact that they sent him a swag package last summer, which is quite unfortunate. However, it seems that the reality star is open to doing business with the brand in the future.
“Well let’s sell some boxers then,” Taylor wrote on Instagram Friday in response to news of the sales jump.
Hey, at least you know what to put in bae’s Christmas stocking this year.
Everyone was ecstatic when Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall returned to "The Game" for the season 8 series finale this summer, but do you know what made the actor who already had a steady job on "Ray Donovan" return to show? Check out what he told us.
Apparently, infidelity played a huge role in The Game’s split from ex-fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge.
The rapper, who currently stars in VH1 dating show “She Got Game,” revealed during his Wednesday appearance on “The Wendy Show” that he regrets cheating on Cambridge.
“I was a dog,” he shared. “I had infidelity issues, and I kind of blew it. It’s pretty much my fault. I had a good woman: school teacher, master’s degree, mother of my children.”
The reality star went on to say that he didn’t realize what he had in Cambridge until she was completely done with him.
“You don’t really get it when you’re in the relationship. Then you get out—and she kicks you to the curb—then you realize what a great woman you had.”
Although things didn’t work out with Cambridge, The Game insists that he’d like to be married someday. However, he admits that he’s not ready at the moment.
“I want to be someone’s husband,” he said. “I want to be everything for that woman, but my grandmother says that one day I’ll wake up and know when I’m ready.”
The Game and Cambridge were involved in a tumultuous relationship for years. They called it quits last year just before rumors of a domestic violence incident surfaced. He maintains that he never hit her, but in an exclusive interview with Madame Noire last year, Cambridge refused to confirm or deny what happened that day.
“Well, I think that in every relationship, there are things that go on that should stay between the two people in the relationship,” she said. “I prefer to just keep some things private and personal between Jayceon and I.”
LisaRaye Sides With The Game After He’s Accused Of Sexual Assault: “Don’t Let Career Criminals Distract You”
Jayceon “The Game” Taylor’s new reality show, “She’s Got Game,” is set to premiere this evening, and while we knew that the series would probably be a trainwreck, we never would have imagined that off-screen scandals would precede the premiere of the show. As previously reported, Taylor was accused of sexually assaulting game show contestant Priscilla Rainey in a newly filed lawsuit. VH1 has remained mum regarding the lawsuit; however, a friend of the reality star, actress LisaRaye McCoy, has come forward to pledge her allegiance to the Compton rapper.
Over the weekend, McCoy took to Instagram to encourage Taylor not to get caught up in the negativity, writing:
My friend my friend @losangelesconfidential 1st I want to remind you “new level new devil” somebody always tryna come up or get over….. I’m going to need you to stay focused don’t let career criminals distract you. When I see your growth & transparency especially with this new album.

McCoy isn’t the only celebrity to weigh in on the lawsuit. Last week, Amber Rose also chimed in when she slammed a media outlet for reporting on Rainey’s colorful criminal record.
At this point, we’re not really sure what to think about any of this, but we’re hoping that the truth will be exposed.
Earlier today, we told you that Jayceon “The Game” Taylor was hit with a $10,000,000 lawsuit filed by a contestant on his new VH1 dating show, “She’s Got Game,” who alleged that he sexually assaulted her.
Shortly after the news went viral, Amber Rose sounded off in the comments section of Baller Alert’s Instagram page regarding the publication’s report on alleged victim Priscilla Rainey’s criminal record.
“This caption is victim blaming @balleralert. Her past has nothing to do with him touching her inappropriately. This is why rape victims and women that get sexually assaulted sit in silence. If he did it, then he did it. If she’s lying, then she’s lying. God will handle that, but this caption is ridiculous! Everyone is going in on this girl calling her a hoe! That’s probably why she was scared to say anything in the first place and continued to promote a show she wasn’t happy with. I’m disappointed at whoever wrote this.”
Interestingly, Taylor, who hasn’t even released an official statement regarding the lawsuit, responded to the socialite on Instagram, writing:
“@amberrose Leave it to you to defend a slut whom I’ve never touched inappropriately in my life. #1 this was the thirstiest broad on the show… She threw her nasty tw-t at me for 5 weeks straight & because I didn’t like her vagina strip eyebrows havin ass, she concocts a story & is suing me for 10 million dollars ??? A f-kin joke & a 1/2….She signed up for the show like all the other girls knowing damn well what she was getting herself into…A show where not one girl was disrespected by myself or anyone else…Yet, this nut job of a chicken says I touched her vagina?? Hoe please, if I did… her thirsty ass would’ve loved it, but I didn’t so fact remains, this chick is crazy & the show, vh1 & the entire cast knows it… But that’s the new way of the world, sue somebody for money you didn’t work for & try to come up…. Shout out to all the women of the world who wake up & go to work & get it the honest way… & shout out to all the women without vagina strip eyebrows…. This b-tch ain’t getting a dime & to Amber, once again… RELAX… I’m taking it easy for now.”
There’s no guessing how this will all unfold, but it has the potential to get extremely ugly.
Jayceon “The Game” Taylor’s new dating show, “She’s Got Game,” hasn’t even premiered yet, and VH1 already has a major scandal on their hands. According to TMZ, one of the show’s contestants is accusing the Compton rapper of sexual assault.
In a new lawsuit filed with the state of Illinois, Priscilla Rainey alleges that Taylor sexually assaulted her on May 22. According to Rainey, the alleged assault went down while they were filming a date scene at a sports bar. She charges that the rapper was “out of control,” drunk and high on drugs.
The model claims that she was sexually assaulted several times during the outing, including when Taylor allegedly “forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks.”
Raining is demanding $10,000,000 in damages. So far, Taylor has not commented on the lawsuit.
