Jadon Sancho booked for showing ‘Justice for George Floyd’ T-shirt as he scores hat-trick in Dortmund win over Paderborn – The Sun

ENGLISH striker Jadon Sancho was booked for revealing a "Justice for George Floyd" T-shirt underneath his Borussia Dortmund kit after the first goal of a stunning hat-trick.

Sancho revealed the handwritten message in the 57th minute of Dortmund's Bundesliga match against Paderborn but was handed a yellow card by the referee for removing his playing shirt.



Sancho scored a classy three goals in Dortmund's thumping 6-1 win as he marked his return to the starting line-up – for the first time since the German league restarted – in some style.

Floyd, 46, was an African American man who died on Monday, after cop Derek Chauvin was filmed kneeling on his neck during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit note, a non-violent crime.

The footage of Floyd, a father, begging for help has gone viral and caused widespread outrage both online and on the streets as mass riots broke out in Minneapolis on Wednesday night.

Protests have since spread across the nation, including to capital Washington D.C. – causing the White House to be placed on lockdown. 

Chauvin, a 44-year-old white man, was arrested and is now facing a third-degree murder charge as well as one for second-degree manslaughter.

Bundesliga Tributes

Sancho is the THIRD Bundesliga player to make a powerful tribute to the late Floyd.

On Saturday, Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie donned a 'Justice For George' armband in his side's 1-0 win over Werder Bremen.

The USA international posted images of him wearing the armband on social media and said: "To be able to use my platform to bring attention to a problem that has been going on to long feels good!!!"

The 22-year-old added: "We have to stand up for what we believe in and I believe that it is time that we are heard! #justiceforgeorgefloyd #saynotoracism."


To be able to use my platform to bring attention to a problem that has been going on to long feels good!!! We have to stand up for what we believe in and I believe that it is time that we are heard! #justiceforgeorgefloyd #saynotoracism

A post shared byWeston McKennie (@west.mckennie) on

Earlier on Sunday, Borussia Monchengladbach ace Marcus Thuram took a knee after scoring in reference to Floyd's tragic death.

Thuram, 22, dropped to one knee in a symbolic gesture to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

The son of French World Cup winner Lilian Thuram made the gesture after scoring the first of his two goals in a 4-1 win over Union Berlin.

Piers Morgan leaves fans green with envy as he shows off his flashy Aston Martin at the car wash – The Sun

PIERS Morgan left his fans green with envy as he showed off his flash Aston Martin after a much-needed clean.

The Good Morning Britain host was hit was a barrage of comments asking if the visit to the west London car wash was "essential" during the current lockdown.

Posting a picture of the shiny £150,000 vehicle on his social media pages, the presenter wrote: "I never knew how much I’d miss a car wash.

"Thank to the guys @atlanticcarwash for restoring my Aston to its former glory after Lockdown rendered it an unsightly stained blot on vehicular humanity."

Piers added: "It’s a great place just off the Fulham Palace Road. Highly recommend. 👍"

But some were upset by what they felt was the 55-year-old showing off and one said: "Ok for some while others are worried about paying essential bills."





"Is that essential?," said a follower.

Another added: "So your putting other people’s lives at risk to get your car wash . Why don’t you do it your self ?"

One wrote: "So many people lost their jobs and can't afford to pay their mortgage bills etc this is disgusting 🤢".

But Piers was quick to explain the reasoning behind the picture and replied: "the car wash guys asked me to do a post to help them get their business back.. sorry if that offends you."

Just recently Piers accused his GMB co-host Susanna Reid of shattering the rear light of his beloved car in the studio car park.

Dr Hilary Jones asked Piers: "Have you found the vandal that vandalised your rear light yet?"

He replied: "No… the rear light got smashed, and I have no idea how it happened other than I park my car next to somebody else's car here… and it's only one other person's car, and it didn't happen at home because I park it next to the pavement."

Susanna shifted in her seat and glanced guiltily to the side, before saying: "I'm very good at three point turns, thank you very much indeed…"

She later wrote in in her Mail column: "I plead not guilty, your honour. Although we have to do a tight three-point turn when leaving work, I pride myself on my driving skills."

SpaceX launch: Flat Earthers rally as Crew Dragon astronauts film Earth from space

SpaceX launched two NASA astronauts into orbit on Saturday, May 31, marking the first crewed flight aboard a private-built spacecraft. Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken blasted off towards the International Space Station (ISS) aboard the Crew Dragon spacecraft, launching from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 8.22pm BST. But as the world celebrated the historic partnership between NASA and SpaceX, many Flat Earth believers took to social media to challenge the launch footage streamed online.

Arguments broke out on Twitter as people on both sides of the debate fought their case.

One person said: “Just imagine if it’s proven now that the Earth is flat people will know by then that this Earth didn’t miraculously came to being with the Big Bang and us living on it by chance, if it’s flat there is a creator there is a God and that’s what they don’t want people to believe.”

The same person also explained the vanishing horizon, saying: “Well what you saw isn’t the curvature it’s just the end of the horizon in our perspectives makes it appear so cause of the vanishing point of our limited view.”

Another Twitter user said: “Dragon is Satan. Dome over flat Earth.”

A third person said: “Nobody seems to pay attention to the declassified documents! Hidden in PLANE sight!

“People are still indoctrinated by their Rockefeller Foundation created curriculums.

“Why do they teach children about space? So you don’t’ question it as an adult! Common sense. The Earth is flat.”

Many conspiracy theorists believe the Earth is flat, gravity can be explained by the Earth flying upwards and the flat planet is enclosed under a dome.

But despite the bizarre tweets aimed at NASA and SpaceX, many people believed the footage caught by SpaceX could finally settle the score.

Dragon is Satan. Dome over flat Earth

Twitter user

One person said: “if you still believe the Earth is flat after the #SpaceX launch you’re a f*** m***.”

Another person said: “Well the flat Earth is over, but it was fun, we had a laugh.

“Fake space is over too, but still we all had a giggle.”

The Crew Dragon reached the International Space Station (ISS), some 252 miles above Earth, at 3.16pm BST.

The spacecraft docked to the ISS’ Harmony port as the orbital lab passed over the border of China and Mongolia.

The astronauts were then scheduled to enter the station by 5.45pm BST.

Astronauts Behnken and Hurley joined NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy and Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner on the station.

NASA said: “It is the second arrival and autonomous docking to the International Space Station for a Crew Dragon spacecraft and the first time any commercially built spacecraft has delivered astronauts to the orbiting laboratory.

“Known as NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2, the mission is an end-to-end test flight to validate the SpaceX crew transportation system, including launch, in-orbit, docking and landing operations and pave the way for its certification for regular crew flights to the station as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.

“For operational missions, Crew Dragon will be able to launch as many as four crew members and carry more than 220 pounds of cargo, enabling the expansion of the inhabitants of the space station, increasing the time dedicated to research in the unique microgravity environment, and returning more science back to Earth.”

The NASA astronauts will remain on the space station for up to four months before returning to Earth.

Since the end of the Space Shuttle era in 2011, NASA has relied on Russian Soyuz rockets to send crews into orbit.

Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi Doesn't Regret 'Jersey Shore,' But She Won't Be Back

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has been an integral part of the Jersey Shore cast since day one. It may have taken Polizzi some time to find her place in the shore house, but once she did, she became everyone’s favorite party girl.

As Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 3 concludes, so does Polizzi’s time on the show. The MTV series may have made Polizzi who she is today, but she’s ready to leave Jersey Shore in the past. Her roommates, on the other hand, beg to differ. 

RELATED: ‘Jersey Shore’: The Best Arguments Pauly D Sparked Between Vinny Guadagnino and Angelina Pivarnick

‘Snooki’ is done with ‘Jersey Shore’ 

The original “blast in a glass” announced she was leaving the MTV series on her podcast It’s Happening With Snooki and Joey. “Don’t hate me for my decision, but I have to do what’s best for me at the moment,” Polizzi shared. “I am retiring from Jersey Shore. I am not coming back for season four if there is one.”

Polizzi explained how she wanted to spend more time with her kids. She also addressed how the series has changed since 2009, adding: “I’m just not comfortable filming that show anymore with the direction it’s going, with all the drama.”

The ‘Jersey Shore’ cast think ‘Snooki’ will come back 

When Polizzi first announced her leaving the show, it was hard for her roommates to here. According to HelloGiggles, some of Polizzi’s castmates think she’ll return to the MTV series. “I just want to move on,” Polizzi said. “I’m not in the mood to do this drama with Angelina anymore, and I just want to be happy and positive, and film fun shows. I’m a mom of three, and I’m 32 years old, so when I leave my kids and film a show, I want to have a good time and not be around negative energy. So, yeah, I don’t think I’m going back.” 

Season 3 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will conclude with Angelina Pivarnick’s dramatic wedding reception, wherein Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and Deena Cortese deliver a wedding toast so insulting, Pivarnick wants to redo her wedding.

‘Snooki’ didn’t want to do a speech for Angelina 

As Polizzi explained to The Ashley Reality Roundup, she never wanted to give a speech at Pivarnick’s wedding. She felt that it wasn’t her place to say anything, but Jersey Shore producers insisted that she start some drama. “I literally told producers, ‘I’m not going to do a speech because I’m not comfortable doing one; I don’t think we should be doing one,’” Polizzi said. “We were forced to do something we didn’t want to do.”

Sadly, their being forced to give a wedding speech has caused tension between the Jersey Shore roommates. Angelina is supposedly still upset about what happened at her wedding.

What’s next for ‘Snooki’ 

Aside from running her boutique, The Snooki Shop, and an Etsy craft store, Polizzi has plenty of other hopes and dreams for her future outside of Jersey Shore. “I would love to do something with Jenni again,” she told HelloGiggles. “Just because filming Snooki & Jwoww, our spinoff from Jersey Shore a while ago was the fun-est show ever.” 

RELATED: Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi May Be Done With ‘Jersey Shore,’ but She’s Not Done With Television

Polizzi is also interested in hosting. “Like a fun game show or something, where I could do something fun with the people, and it’s not all about me, ya know?” Polizzi hosted MTV’s How Far Is Tattoo Far? in 2018 — a project she enjoyed because the spotlight wasn’t on her. “I like having that break of not always being ‘on.’” 

Polizzi is also working on a line of strollers with retailer Buy Buy Baby. “I collabed with Your Babiie, and I made a couple [of] strollers, I made high chairs, some travel systems like diaper bags,” Polizzi explained. “Mawmas” everywhere will have to stay tuned for Polizzi’s parental-themed merchandise!

The real reason Queen Elizabeth II doesn’t need a passport

While many leaders of the free world might think of themselves as royalty (looking at you, Donald Trump), almost all of them still need the same thing to travel around the world: a passport. Except for one, that is — none other than the United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II. Ever since being crowned in 1953, the Queen has been able to travel freely around the globe without identification for nearly seven decades.

So, how is this possible? To get an idea, it’s worth it to take a look at a bit of text inserted in every British passport today (and has been, in various iterations, for centuries). As per the royal family’s official website, the text in question is as follows: “Her Britannic Majesty’s Secretary of State requests and requires in the name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary.”

What exactly does this mean? And how does it explain why and how Queen Elizabeth II doesn’t need a passport to get around? Let’s take a closer look.

The explanation for why the Queen doesn't need a passport is a straight-up history lesson

According to a 2006 article from the Guardian, the first iteration of the British passport purportedly surfaced during the reign of King Henry V (or Timothée Chalamet with a bowl cut, for readers who aren’t familiar with the history of the British monarchy).

As the Guardian explained, parliamentary paperwork referring to a “safe conduct” document first popped up in 1414 in regards to ensuring both British subjects and foreign nationals a sense of security while traveling (though the former had to pay for said documents while the latter did not). Due to the fact that these “safe conduct” documents were issued by the monarch themselves (or in this case, Henry V), there was never a need to bestow that permission — it would be redundant, at the very least. Or, as the Atlantic put it in a 2015 article on the subject (no pun intended), the Queen doesn’t need a passport because she essentially is one.

Though these documents came under the jurisdiction of the Privy Council (essentially a cabinet of advisers) in 1540, so although the earliest version of the passport hasn’t been something the ruling British monarch has directly issued for centuries, it’s still something they don’t necessarily need. Even so, only the reigning king or queen can travel without one — as the royal family’s official website states, all other members are required to possess one to travel abroad.

If Queen Elizabeth II doesn't need a passport, why does everyone else?

So, if Queen Elizabeth II doesn’t have to obtain or carry a passport to go in and out of the United Kingdom, then why do other leaders of other countries have to? Once again, the key to this query is all in the passport text.

As the Atlantic pointed out in 2015, the issuance text in the typical U.K. passport calls the Queen, “her Britannic Majesty” — a reference to her as a sovereign. If you compare it to a passport from the United States, you’ll find that a similar type of issuance text names the secretary of state as the one who can “hereby [request] all whom it may concern to permit the citizen/national of the United States named herein.” 

You don’t have to look too closely to realize that “sovereign” and “citizen/national” aren’t synonymous — and it’s the reason everyone from the average U.S. resident to the President of the United States needs one to get around.

As with history, U.K. passports repeat themselves… sort of

Unlike Queen Elizabeth II, the Secretary of State (in this case, currently Secretary Mike Pompeo) is both a citizen and employee of the democratic U.S., not a crowned ruler in a country whose government operates as a constitutional monarchy. And while the Queen and the rest of the royal family might have titles that are mostly ceremonial (with a Prime Minister and Parliament that actually operate as a government body), Elizabeth II is still considered a sovereign first and foremost.

The question remains: Is this ever likely to change? According to the Express, most likely not — as they put it, after her eventual death any current passport will still be considered valid, and the phrasing of the issuance text will simply be tweaked to refer to whoever succeeds her (either her direct heir Prince Charles, or if he steps aside, his own eldest son, Prince William). The more you know, right?

The 100 Exposed Me to a Diverse LGBTQ+ Community and Helped Me Embrace My Own Sexuality

In recent years, people have wanted to see more television that reflects their own lives, as well as the lives of people around them. As a result, LGBTQ+ representation on television has skyrocketed with an explosion in quality and variety, allowing for greater visibility and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community.

One such show is The 100. The post-apocalyptic series has always portrayed diverse and outspoken characters, especially women, since its debut. But in season two, the series took character representation to the next level when it introduced two bisexual characters — Clarke and Lexa. The 100 marked such a milestone in LGBTQ+ representation that it helped me discover and come out as bisexual.

In the episode, “Bodyguard of Lies,” Clarke and Lexa share a kiss after a brief argument, and eventually in season three become lovers. And, although those two characters getting together in and of itself wasn’t anything special, the fact that The 100 chose to use sexuality as part of character development rather than as a story device was mind-blowing.

Survival is everything on The 100, but Clarke and Lexa didn’t need each other to survive. That’s why there were no obvious signs that indicated they were LGBTQ+. Because of Hollywood’s portrayal of LGBTQ+ characters being skewed in the past, I often associated LGBTQ+ people with specific traits and characteristics. The 100 helped me to realize that I shouldn’t automatically assume anybody’s sexuality because anybody could be a part of the LGBTQ+ community. Seeing Clarke and Lexa also allowed me to become more open-minded about my own sexuality. Until I saw The 100, I never thought I could be bisexual since I never showed any “stereotypical” signs that I thought indicated bisexuality, besides actually liking both girls and guys. My fashion style, interaction with girls, and personality never elicited a presumed “bisexual” message that I thought existed — which opposed traditional female codes ‚ so I thought it was just a phase. The 100 made me realize otherwise.

The 100‘s LGBTQ+ representation also helped to dismantle several inaccurate myths about those within the bisexual community. With so many LGBTQ+ shows only portraying limited representations of the community, countless sexualities and genders are often stereotyped due to the lack of representation and awareness. For the longest time, I internally struggled with whether I was actually bisexual because although I liked both girls and guys, I didn’t have a 50-50 divide on attraction. Clarke and Lexa helped me to realize that this was a misconception about bisexuals.

Because Clarke and Lexa’s sexuality didn’t evolve the plot in any way, but instead made them more realistic and complex characters, there was no larger discussion that confirmed or denied the sexuality of these characters. Neither character explained their sexuality and how it shaped and defined them over the years. Their sexuality was no big deal. Just like how it should be in real life.

By not spending countless episodes explaining or justifying the sexuality of LGBTQ+ characters to normalize them like so many shows do, The 100 reminded me that people’s sexuality only makes up a small aspect of who they are. This realization was huge for me, as I often feared my sexuality would define me if and when I came out as bisexual.

Lastly, The 100 opened up my eyes to the fact that in order for people to view the LGBTQ+ community the same way that the view the straight community, they need to be portrayed on TV as not just a representation of their sexuality, but instead for their experience as complex individuals. If LGBTQ+ characters are seen as special or controversial on television, they’re going to be treated as such in real life. With there being no judgment, self-doubt, or reservations about Clarke and Lexa, The 100 showed me how broken society is for stigmatizing and discriminating against the LGBTQ+ community. Realizing this, I became fueled to advocate for LGBTQ+ equality, even before I fully became a part of the LGBTQ+ community myself. Overall, The 100 has helped me to not only learn about the LGBTQ+ community, but embrace my own sexuality.

‘Bachelor’ Couple Arie Luyendyk Jr. & Lauren Burnham Reveal She Suffered Miscarriage

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are opening up about an incredibly painful experience.

The Bachelor couple revealed that Lauren suffered a miscarriage in a new video on YouTube on Saturday (May 30).

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Arie Luyendyk Jr.

The couple documented their journey as they get a pregnancy test and find out, to Lauren‘s surprise, they she is expecting their second child. They also have a 1-year-old daughter together, Alessi.

“We bought a new house with more space, we planned how we wanted to tell you all and we envisioned our future with Alessi‘s little brother/sister. We were planning to share our journey through pregnancy with you, but unfortunately we didn’t get the happy story we had hoped for,” they said.

They revealed that the trouble started with her ultrasound, which showed that the baby looked only 5 weeks old when it should have been 8 weeks along. After waiting another week, they returned to discover that she had suffered a missed miscarriage, which happens when the embryo has died, but has not been physically miscarried.

“It’s been a roller coaster of emotions going from scared at first a little bit because it was so soon, then happy, then stress and worry for weeks on end, and then obviously today was the bad news. It’s consumed our thoughts for the last month. It’s been hard holding this back from everybody,” Arie said.

“I was really excited to tell you guys that we were pregnant, and I feel like this is the best way for us to tell the whole story,” Lauren added.

“Hopefully the next time you see a video with the word pregnancy it’s positive and it’s good news,” Arie went on to say, hopefully.

Arie also debuted a new look in quarantine.
