*Terry Crews has taken a brief break from protecting white America from “blackness,” to denounce pornography and call for the shutdown of the global website Pornhub.

In a message posted to his Twitter account on Tuesday, Crews wrote “DEFUND PORNHUB.”

His tweet comes after Laila Mickelwait of Exodus Cry launched an online petition listing the reasons why Pornhub needs to be shut down.

“Pornhub, the world’s largest and most popular porn site, has been repeatedly caught enabling, hosting, and profiting from videos of child rape, sex trafficking, and other forms of non-consensual content exploiting women and minors,” the petition states.

“We’re calling for Pornhub to be shut down and its executives held accountable for these crimes.”

The petition notes Pornhub’s alleged ties to sex trafficking and videos hosted on the site of abducted minors being sexually assaulted, per The Christian Post.

“A 15-year-old girl who had been missing for a year was finally found after her mother was tipped off that her daughter was being featured in videos on the site — 58 such videos of her rape and sexual abuse were discovered on Pornhub,” continued the petition.

“Her trafficker, who was seen in the videos raping the child, was identified using surveillance footage of him at a 7-Eleven where he was spotted with his victim. He is now facing a felony charge.”

In his July 14 tweet, Crews tagged the group Fight the New Drug, an organization that describes itself as a “Non-religious, non-legislative, research-based nonprofit raising awareness on the harmful effects of porn & exploitation.”

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation praised the actor for his call to shut down Pornhub.

“It takes courage to publicly state that there are major problems with the largest pornography website’s existence, and we commend Terry Crews for using his influence to call on Pornhub to be defunded,” said NCOSE Executive Director Dawn Hawkins in a statement on Wednesday.

“Pornhub — which requires no legitimate forms of age-verification from users who are uploading content — ultimately is fueling demand for sexual abuse material and putting lives at great risk. It is past time to shut down Pornhub.”

Crews previously admitted to having an addiction to pornography and explained how it affected his marriage. 

“It changes the way you think about people. People become objects,” he said in the 2016 video. “It affected everything. I didn’t tell my wife … didn’t tell my friends. Nobody knew, but the internet allowed that little secret to just stay and grow. It was something that my wife was literally like, ‘I don’t know you anymore. I’m out of here.’”

    Terry Crews is good at calling out porn purveyors. Porn viewing truly does have negative consequences and is a hard habit to stop. I’ve heard that the book Power Over Pornography is a very effective way to stop. It’s unlike other methods; it relies on advanced cognitive behavior-based methods and apparently works better than alternatives. At last check, the book was being offered for free (+ a shipping fee) at freebook.poweroverpornography.com. You may want to check it out if you or a friend has a porn habit they want to stop.

“I would describe my interviewing style as very conversational – it feels like you’re just kicking it,” Yee explains.  “I always have certain questions in my head and I always make sure I ask.”

Yee has a “wish list” of celebrities she would like to interview.  Lil Kim and Miss Elliot are at the top of the list.

In addition to her new television program, Yee owns Juice for Life, a juice bar in Brooklyn.  She also continues to co-host The Breakfast Club on Power 101.5 FM, with DJ Envy and Charlamagne tha God.  As far as her future on The Breakfast Club, especially when her contract is up for renewal next year, Yee won’t reveal her plans.

“The guys have all signed up and are ready to go so they’ll be there,” Yee says.  “It’s always ‘it is what it is’ during contract negotiation time.  I feel like sometimes I take on a lot, but I put.   100 percent in everything that I do.  I’m at the point of my life where I can do what I want.  I’m just a fan of seizing the moment.”

*Meghan, Britain’s Duchess of Sussex, revealed in an essay published in the New York Times on Wednesday that she suffered a miscarriage in July.

The former actress and wife of Prince Harry said the moment occurred while she was caring for her son Archie.

“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second,” Meghan wrote, describing how she felt a sharp cramp, and dropped to the floor while holding her son. 

“Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears,” she wrote. “Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”

Meghan added: “Sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine, I realized that the only way to begin to heal is to first ask, “Are you OK?”

“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote.

“In the pain of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them will have suffered from miscarriage. Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning,” Meghan continued.

The duchess is receiving an outpouring of love on social media, with author Elizabeth Day writing on Twitter: “Chrissy Teigen and the Duchess of Sussex speaking openly about something that historically has given women so much pain, shame and trauma, is a game-changing step.

“I, and countless others, am so grateful to them. Beyond that, I simply want to tell them: I am so, so sorry.”

Prince Harry reportedly told the royal family about his wife’s miscarriage in the summer and they were “very supportive,” a royal expert says, Newsweek reports.
