ABC – A self-described “plus sized” college student who was told she was “obviously pregnant” and “not pretty enough” to dance on a platform in a bar in Iowa is claiming she was discriminated against by the bar’s bouncers. Jordan Ramos, a 21-year-old University of Iowa student said she went to Union Bar in Iowa City, Iowa with her friends on March 3. She said she tried to get onto a platform where several of her friends were dancing, but was stopped by the bouncer. “What is the difference between the other girls up there and myself?” “There was only one difference: I am a plus-sized individual. The bouncer said ‘Look, you will never get up on this platform. Go back to the dance floor where you belong,’” Ramos told ABC News. Ramos said a friend of hers tried to talk to the manager, but he refused to talk to her. The manager told them to leave, Ramos said. She sent the manager an email, which she says was never answered. A social work professor at the University of Iowa told Ramos to return to the bar. “She told my friends and I to go back and see if the same thing happens and to try to get them to say aloud ‘I am not allowing you up because of your size,’” Ramos said. On April 14, Ramos returned to the Union Bar with a group of friends. Ramos’ friends, who she said are all thin, were able to get up on the platform easily. But Ramos was blocked from entering, she said. Ramos asked the bouncer repeatedly why she could not dance on the platform. “He said, ‘You’re not pretty enough and you’re pregnant.’ I said, ‘I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that I am not pregnant.’ He then looked at my stomach and said, ‘You obviously are.’ They knew I was not pregnant; it was there way of calling me fat without having to actually say it,” Ramos said.
Sorry, bitch this ain't Kam's. Its the biggest bar in the big ten. So if you want to dance with your hot friends get with the Iowa City diet. Grab a straw , head to the basement of the bar and don't come up for air until you've lost 20, 50, 100 lbs.
Someone over at Choose Chicago, the city’s tourism organization, got the bright idea to get Buddy Guy and the band Chicago—get it? get it?—together to record a “cool” new anthem to our fair city, to be played all over the world and get people to come here. They hipped it up by adding the lyrical masterminds in Umphrey’s McGee. The result,“Chicago,” is—well, it’s horrible.
Feminists always attack me for being a male chauvinist pig. Wrong! I’m just trying to protect you. There is a reason why I think you should stay in the kitchen and bedroom. This is it. You start getting crazy and riding motorcycles and shit and only bad things can happen. Like slamming your face directly into the cement. Wouldn’t have happened if she was cooking somebody dinner instead. Like I said I’m on your team ladies….
BSS-To the naked eye, this video doesn’t seem to be a classic. No major knockouts. No serious one-punches. But the underlying nuances of this video makes it the quintessential World Star fight. Lets break this down frame by frame, moment by moment.
1) The whole crowd agree this would be a 1 on 1 fight and everyone from both teams yelling “SWANG! SWANG!” instructing them what to do is priceless. This is like Hoodrat Hunger Games. Two young girls coming of age in some sort of annual brawl.
2) This chick’s fro after having her hair yanked out:
Were you in a ghetto fight or did you get electrocuted? Looks like a piece of nappy broccoli.
3) The overall vibe of excitement and enjoyment is through the roof. People are straight up giddy at the thought of these to girls beating each other to death at the bus stop. People running around filming different angles. Cheering, yelling. The enthusiasm is palpable. Even Harriet Tubman on the right side has a front row seat:
4) This move at the 45 second mark:
Urban youths straight up love that stutter-step-with-the-bouncing-fists fighting stance. I have no idea if its effective or not because I’m a white boy who doesn’t fight but I do know I always see this move like they are inside the octagon or something.
5) This dude ripping some chick’s head off for breaking the 1-on-1 “no jump ins” rule and then body slamming her friend at the 1:20 mark:
Say what you want about these people but there’s a code in the streets. Organized chaos. The chick in the yellow going berserk during the scrum is priceless.
6) The dude who comes in ridin dirty at the 1:40 mark:
Best part is if you go back and watch the video he’s across the street watching the whole time. You just never notice him.
Ordinarily this would earn you the title of best cameo appearance in a ghetto fight video, except for
7) This white guy who comes strolling in at the end to break it up:
What the fuck is that guy thinking! Dude looks like he just finished his shift at Pacific Sunwear. Looks like he’s straight out of a Billabong catalog. What the fuck is this guy doing getting in this mix? Unreal. The icing on a ridiculously ghetto cake.
Here is Camille Belle leaving something called the Neon Carnival at Coachella. So there is girls that look like this at something called the Neon Carnival at an awesome music festival where drugs and free love seem all the rage?
[Cowell] met the girl in a nightclub and smuggled her back to his hotel. Next day he woke to find her gone — taking his wallet and a laptop full of show secrets. Cowell’s team called in cops, who used security camera footage to trace the thieving girl. She agreed to return the computer — but kept the cash from his wallet. The robbery — after Cowell had downed too many vodka mixes at Drai’s nightclub in Hollywood — happened last October at a time of crisis in his career over The X Factor in the UK and US.
Daaaaaaaamn! Same thing happened to me. Instead of girl from a fancy night club it was a hooker at 7/11 and instead of a laptop with huge hollywood show secrets it was my debit card and $40 bucks.
