Indya Moore is a noted activist within the Transgender community, in addition to the responsibilities she currently within the cast of FX's Pose - where she portrays "Angel Evangelista," a drag queen who dabbles in sex work. Moore's character isn't the only one with strong inclinations towards the LGBTQ community, as the show is essentially an homage to New York City's Ball Culture in the late 80s and 90s.
That being said, it's easy to see why Indya Moore, or any of her castmates would be subjected to wrathful Donald Trump supporters if they crossed paths. Regrettably, that's exactly what transpired this afternoon when the actress was leaving the Manhattan location where Pose is regularly shot and conceived.
As you'll see, upon leaving the building, Indya Moore found herself face to face with a horde of overzealous Trump supporters. The following begins with her trampling a "Re-elect Trump" sign - after which she exclaims, "Well, you guys aren’t fans of our show, and we don’t want you to be fans of our show."
Then for some reason, a couple of police officers tasked with "crowd control" inform Moore that she was unlucky to come out unscathed. "You could’ve died for Trump! He could’ve stabbed you!"
The video in question was submitted to Facebook by a known Trump supporter going by the name of Dion Cini. Their social networking profile clearly notes their allegiances by way of photographic evidence, namely photos where they've shown face at Trump rallies with "Blue Lives Matter" signage and rhetoric.
Cini, who ostensibly filmed everything from a bird's eye view, later pressed charges against Indya Moore on the grounds that she disfigured a poster that cost well over $250 to fabricate. For her part, Moore thanked her fans for the immediate support she received in the advent of video being posted on social media this afternoon. It doesn't seem as though Moore will face charges for larceny, or anything for that matter. Fingers crossed on all fronts.

“I’m scared to go under the knife—I don’t want it to mess up my nose! If I got work done, I would definitely say it. I definitely want to get my boobs lifted one day. If it makes me feel better and sexy? I’m like, do whatever you want.”
Tracy Morgan Gets Into Accident In New Bugatti 15 Minutes After Purchase: Report
Tracy Morgan reportedly was taken to the hospital after the accident.
Three days ago marked the five-year anniversary since the fatal car accident that left Tracy Morgan hospitalized in critical condition. Unfortunately, today, he found himself in another collision of sorts which thankfully didn’t include any fatalities. According to TMZ, Tracy Morgan’s newly purchased Bugatti was sideswiped minutes after he bought it off of the lot.
A Hondo CR-V sideswiped Morgan’s new 2012 Bugatti Veyron that still had the dealer plates on it in New York City this afternoon. At this point, there hasn’t been anything indicating who’s actually at fault but the footage suggests that the Honda attempted to make a quick right turn at the last second and ended up hitting Morgan’s new vehicle. Morgan reportedly was taken to the hospital after complaints about pain.
A crowd surrounded Morgan shortly after who was talking to the police to likely find out what happened. If it ends up being in the hands of the SUV owner, they’ll have to cough up a pretty penny. The SUV goes for $25K while the Bugatti is upwards of $1.5M.
Morgan’s new vehicle was bought fifteen minutes before the car crash. The vehicle’s already back at the dealership to examine the damage. It doesn’t look like there was any serious damage with the exception of a few cars and scratches but the car is all carbon so you could only imagine that it’ll cost a pretty penny.

The Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said the three men “were tripped up by the justice system and have met their downfall.” The three men recruited “patients — some from homeless shelters — and trained them to stage slip-and-fall accidents. Court documents revealed they’d tell their patients to trip over cracks in the concrete or cellar doors in front of businesses in the New York City area. Prosecutors said they would coach the people executing their scams to claim injuries that would amount in big payouts such as their knees, shoulders, and back. They would then be directed to avoid certain lawyers, chiropractors, and doctors that might catch on to their plans. The people were also forced to undergo certain surgeries that would increase the payout.
Peter Kalkanis, the leader of the elaborate scam and former chiropractor, was found guilty of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. He was also convicted on additional mail fraud and wire fraud charges.

All of Teyana’s musical guests were upstaged by her husband’s charitable donation of his body as a “concert prop.”
Teyana Taylor performed the Red Bull Music Festival in her hometown of New York City last night. Along for the ride, was her husband, Iman Shumpert, granting himself a “red shirt” for the immediate Spring-Summer, after losing out to the Golden State Warriors in the playoffs. The difference for Shump is that the conditions set by an excitable Teyana Taylor, ready to soothe his ego, make for a consolation prize like no other – One he likely pines for in secret while his teammates are busy doing their reps.
During last night’s performance at the Manhattan Center, that homely display I fell short of describing became a public one in a matter of seconds. “I need my husband out here,” Taylor exclaimed during a dire moment of her set, paving the way for Iman Shumpert to resume his duties as the human prop of all props. Get this: while Teyana Taylor is burying her crotch in her husband’s face, their lovechild Junie is seated in the front row taking it all in. Aside from recreating “Fade” in gore-tex regalia, Teyana did save a good portion of her set for her guests, Method Man, and Fabolous. She also ushered in a moment silence for Nipsey Hussle – may he rest in power.
