JUDGE ISSUES ARREST WARRANT FOR KYLE MASSEY: According to The New York Daily News, a judge issued an arrest warrant for ex-Disney star Kyle Massey after missing his arraignment hearing regarding the inappropriate  communication with a minor allegation against him. Massey failed to appear in a Seattle courtroom to face the felony count and possibly enter his plea, so a judge signed a $100,000 warrant for his arrest. Prosecutors say that Massey was 27 years old back in December 2018 and January 2019 when he allegedly targeted a 13-year-old girl with sexually explicit material via Snapchat. Meanwhile, Massey’s lawyer Lee Hutton reportedly told TMZ that his client never received a summons and that several phone calls to the King County prosecutor’s office went unanswered.

Smith has apologized for his "insensitive and regrettable" remarks about Los Angeles Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani. Smith sppke on Ohtani's inability to speak English, saying,  "I don't think it helps that the number one face is a dude that needs an interpreter so you can understand what the hell he's saying." He later clarified, "In the United States, all I was saying is that, when you're a superstar, if you could speak the English language, guess what, that's going to make it that much easier, less challenging to promote the sport." He continued, "I never intended to offend ANY COMMUNITY, particularly the Asian Community — and especially SHOHEI Ohtani, himself. As an African-American, keenly aware of the damage stereotyping has done to many in this country, it should've elevated my sensitivities even more. Based on my words, I failed in that regard and it's on me, and me alone!" He called Ohtani "one of the brightest stars in all of sports" and continued to admit that he "screwed up." Smith spoke out against the violence that has been perpetrated against Asian communities and called his remarks "insensitive and regrettable."
