Will At Home: Fresh Prince reunion

*Will Smith reunited with the cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on the season finale of his Snapchat series, Will From Home.

Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz), Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Vivian) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey) were in virtual attendance. There will also be a tribute to the late James Avery, who played Will’s Uncle Phil.

Snapchat shared two clips from the reunion on YouTube. One has Smith revealing that it was Ribeiro who convinced him to name his character in the show after himself. “It was such a deep insight that you had,” Smith recalled. “You said, ‘Because people are going to call you that for the rest of your life!’”

The other clip has Smith asking the cast how they dealt with people knowing them only as their Fresh Prince characters in the real world. DJ Jazzy Jeff said he got super annoyed when people tried to do the handshake he and Smith shared on the show. “You would see in peoples’ eyes when they were about to sneak the handshake, and I would just grab their hand and hold it!” Jeff cracked.

The first installment of the two-part finale premiered Wednesday on Snapchat, while the second will premiere Thursday, April 30th, at 6 a.m. ET. View both clips below:

‘This Is Not Kneeling On A Neck’: Cop Shot During Breonna Taylor Raid Says It Was ‘Not a Race Thing’ (Watch)

*Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, the officer who was shot in the leg while carrying out a search warrant at Breonna Taylor’s apartment, seems to think that because none of the officers knelt on her neck as in the George Floyd police killing, that race shouldn’t be a factor in their case.

Speaking out for the first time exclusively to ABC News and The Courier Journal in Louisville Tuesday, Mattingly said, “This is not relatable to George Floyd. This is nothing like that.”

Mattingly has been accused of raiding Taylor’s house under the guise of a narcotics investigation. The officers claimed that they were executing a late-night “no-knock'” warrant. Mattingly said he was shot at by Taylor’s boyfriend, after which the police opened fire which resulted in Taylor’s death.

None of the officers have been charged with the death of Taylor, and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is under fire from critics.

“It’s not a race thing like people want to try to make it to be. It’s not. This is a point where we were doing our job, we gave too much time when we go in, I get shot, we returned fire,” Mattingly said in the interview.

“This is not us going, hunting somebody down. This is not kneeling on a neck. It’s nothing like that.” he added.

*He just couldn’t help himself. A Memphis rapper who bragged in a song and music video about getting rich off of unemployment fraud has been arrested on charges of fraudulently obtaining $1.2 million in COVID-19 unemployment benefits.

Nuke Bizzle (real name Fontrell Antonio Baines), 31, was charged Friday with allegedly obtaining and using debit cards that were pre-loaded with unemployment benefits administered by the California Employment Development Department (EDD). The debit cards he received were issued in the names of third-parties, according to a 32-page complaint filed against him by U.S. State Attorney Nicola T. Hanna of the Central District of California.

The investigation found that 92 debit cards pre-loaded with more than $1.2 million in fraudulently obtained benefits were mailed to addresses in Beverly Hills and Koreatown that Baines had access to, according to an affidavit submitted by the Department of Justice.

In a series of since-deleted posts, Baines posted pics to his Instagram account reportedly showing him holding stacks of $100 bills, wearing expensive gold watches and boasting of renting a $6,500/month Hollywood Hills home. He also posted a music video on YouTube for a track entitled “EDD” in which he brags about doing “my swagger for EDD” while holding up a stack of envelopes from the agency and getting rich by “go[ing] to the bank with a stack of these,” according to information provided by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).

Watch below:

When he was arrested on Sept. 23 in Las Vegas, Baines had eight debit cards in his possession, seven of which were in the names of other people, according to the DOJ affidavit filed in the case.

He’s being charged with three felony offenses – access device fraud, aggravated identity theft, and interstate transportation of stolen property. If convicted of all charges, Baines would face a statutory maximum sentence of 22 years in federal prison. His arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 5.

Alex Beckom addresses a maskless customer at a Starbucks in Santee, Calif. before things go left

*A Black barista working at a Starbucks in Santee, Calif. Was the victim of a racist rant by a white customer over the weekend.

According to the viral video, a young, white woman began berating African-American employee Alex Beckom after she politely asked the customer to wear her face mask in the Oct. 17 incident.

“When you talk to me like that, I know it’s because you’re discriminating against me because I’m a Trump supporter,” said the unidentified customer. “F— Black Lives Matter.”

After Beckom gave the customer the sugar she asked for, she calmly said to the woman, “The next time you come in, I need you to keep a mask on.”

The woman snapped back, “It’s not a law! It’s a hoax! I don’t have to wear a mask. I’m not going to wear a mask. This is America. I don’t have to do what you say! Trump 2020!”

Beckom then calmly asked her to leave. The woman left, then poked her head back in to shout one more “F— Black Lives Matter!” before exiting for good.

Beckom told San Diego TV station KNSD that the customer reportedly had pulled down her mask to speak to another barista.

“I’m Black in America, so I’ve dealt with these kinds of situations before,” explained the 19-year-old worker. “So I am able to stay calm and collected in these types of situations because I don’t want to risk my job.”
