Amazon Prime Video Presents: ‘Time’ Featuring FoxandRob Richardson / EUR Exclusive-WATCH

*Time is something that most of us take for granted. We put off what we can do today until the next day, we procrastinate. But for FoxandRob Richardson time gained a different meaning to them.

In the early 90s the Richardsons, a married couple from Louisiana, fell on hard terms and made the decision to rob a bank. They were both convicted of this crime and while Fox received a plea deal, Rob was sentenced to 60 years in prison without the possibility of parole. Excessive sentencing of black men is a known problem in the justice system. 

According to the United States Sentencing Commission black males receive sentencing that is 19.1 percent longer than white males.

Feeling and knowing that the sentence her (Fox) husband received was unfair and unjust she dedicates her life to fighting for an early release for Rob.  

Director Garrett Bradley captures Fox’s journey in the documentary titled “Time.” We see Fox as she raises her six sons, works, and works for the release of her husband. Some may watch the documentary and feel as if one should do the time if they did commit the crime.

We sat down with FoxandRob Richardson to talk about their experience and what they would say to those people. 

“I think until they spend a day behind prison bars they are not entitled to make that statement. People that break the law are still citizens and human beings above all,” says Fox.

Through her efforts Fox was able to get Rob released after 21 years in prison and they now help teach people how to fight for themselves  to combat excessive sentencing towards black men and women 

Check out our exclusive video interview at the top of the page for the full scoop and catch “Time” on Amazon Prime starting October 16

*Netflix has yanked Dave Chappelle’s comedy sketch series “Chappelle’s Show” from its platform.

The series originally aired on Comedy Central from 2003 to 2006. The comedian famously walked away from the show in 2005 due to creative differences.

Chappelle revealed in a lengthy Instagram video Tuesday that he requested for the series to be removed because he “never got paid” by ViacomCBS after he quit. 

“If you are (expletive) streaming that show, you are fencing stolen goods,” Chappelle said in the 18-minute video titled, “Unforgiven.” “They stole that (show) from me, they just took it.”

Watch him tell it via the Instagram video below.

“I found out these people were streaming my work and never had to ask me or they never had to tell me,” he continued. “Perfectly legal because I signed the contract, but is that right? I didn’t think so.”

Chappelle signed a deal with Netflix in 2016 for five stand-up specials that have been released on the platform, including “Dave Chappelle: Equanimity,” “Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin” and “Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones.”

“(Netflix) agreed that they would take it off their platform just so I could feel better,” Chapelle said. “That’s why I (expletive) with Netflix because they pay me my money, they do what they say they are going to do and they went above and beyond what you could expect from a businessman.”

The attempts will prove to be almost impossible for anyone who does not have allies they think they can trust. Viewers will see more sex, lies, and murder in this cult that is living up to its fate. Being aware of false prophets has never reigned more true.

EURweb sat down with some of the cast members to talk about the return of Ruthless and Melissa L. Williams said “Ruth is definitely alive and so a cross over with ‘The Oval’ is definitely a possibility.”

Matt Cedeño also talked to EURweb and said “The Highest goes through phases of being hyper-paranoid about every aspect of his existence and we’ll see in the second half of the first season, where The Highest is feeling very comfortable and good.”

We can only imagine what this all means, but we do know that viewers are in for a lot of suspense, thrills and plot twists upon the return of the season.

Ruthless returns to BET+ this Thursday, November 26, 2020.  Make sure to catch up on all episodes of the first season at Ruthless on BET+
