“I encourage all Americans, not just the 75 million people who voted for President Trump, to mobilize and make your voices heard in opposition to these attacks on our liberties,” the tweet read.

Greene also tweeted a thread referencing conspiracy theories regarding the validity of the recent Georgia Senate elections. She reacted to the news of her suspension in a statement that called for Congress to "act swiftly" to "protect free speech in America."

“Silicon Valley Cartel launched a multi-front attack to chill free speech in America by deplatforming President Donald Trump and purging an unknown number of conservatives,” the statement read.

Prior to her election, Green previously supported the "Pizzagate" conspiracy theory, which claimed that Democratic Party leaders run a human-trafficking and pedophilia ring. She also theorized that the counter-protester killed in 2017 at the White nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia was "an inside job."

Green was elected to the House in November as a representative of Georgia's 14th congressional district.

Twitter also banned President Donald Trump earlier this month.

"It's a sad day for music and a sad day for me," Ronnie, 77, wrote on Instagram. "When I was working with Phil Spector, watching him create in the recording studio, I knew I was working with the very best. He was in complete control, directing everyone. So much to love about those days. Meeting him and falling in love was like a fairytale."

"As I said many times while he was alive, he was a brilliant producer, but a lousy husband," she wrote. "Unfortunately Phil was not able to live and function outside of the recording studio. Darkness set in, many lives were damaged."

The couple married in 1968 and divorced six years later.

Phil Spector passed away from complications relating to COVID-19 on Saturday at the age of 81. The Grammy-winning musician was serving a 19-to-life sentence after being convicted for the 2003 murder of actress Lana Clarkson. He worked on the iconic Beatles' album Let It Be, many of The Ronettes' hits, and influenced the likes of the Beach Boys, Brian Eno, and Bruce Springsteen.

"Good news/Bad news," Martin wrote on Twitter, Sunday morning. "Good news: I just got vaccinated! Bad news: I got it because I’m 75. Ha! The operation in NYC was smooth as silk (sorry about the cliché @BCDreyer!) and hosted to perfection by the US Army and National Guard. Thank you all, and thank you science."

Martin says he was able to get access to the vaccine through New York City's government’s website where he was among those eligible, who include “individuals 75 and older, first responders, public safety officers, teachers and other school staff; in-person college instructors, childcare workers, public-facing grocery store workers, transit workers and individuals living and working in homeless shelters.” The site warns that it could take up to 14 weeks to schedule an appointment due to limited federal allocation.

"I signed up ON line through an NYC dot gov website (sorry I don’t have the exact site), and waited IN line at the Javits Center," Martin said, replying to a fan who was seeking advice on where to get his 83-year-old mother-in-law vaccinated in New York.

"Right now, I’m having no fide resects [sic]," Martin joked.

Bow Wow Responds To Criticism Over Maskless Club Performance: "It Wasn't My Party"

Read more >>>

As the second wave of COVID-19 burgeons throughout major cities in the United States, while it was never quite appropriate to do it, right now is perhaps the most wildly unpopular time to be seen at a packed club. This was unfortunately the case for Bow Wow, née Shad Moss, after footage showing the 33-year-old rapper performing in front of a packed audience in a Houston club Friday night (January 15th) went viral. After dozens of people chimed in to condemn the rapper for his dangerous actions, the father of two is now firing back at critics insisting he did not intentionally put anyone in danger.

In a series of since-deleted tweets sent out on Saturday, Moss addressed the fiasco. "I just woke up… aww god. Here we go," he tweeted before defending himself. The club's Instagram says masks are required inside the venue, and the rapper claimed he had one on "up until i got on the mic. 

"Man i been hosting parties all last year. I wore my mask in the club. I cant host with that thing on," Bow Wow added. "I promise my mask I wore in the club up until i got on the mic. That simple. Keep sanitizer on me at all times." In another tweet, Moss claimed, 'IT WASNT MY PARTY. But of course ima get the blame." 
The rapper then acknowledged the different regulations in different states amid the pandemic. "Man texas is open. Atl is open. I cant help i live in a city where we been open since last spring," he wrote.

James Harden Has A Warning For The Rest Of The NBA

Read more >>>

James Harden played his very first game with the Brooklyn Nets last night and it was quite the display of dominance. Harden was able to pick up a triple-double all while notching north of 30 points. This all took place while Kevin Durant dropped 42 in a win against the Orlando Magic. Needless to say, Harden and Durant look like one hell of a duo which is spectacular when you consider how Kyrie Irving wasn't even in the lineup.

Following the game, Harden went on his IG story and gave a fair warning to the rest of the NBA in anticipation of Irvin's return. "Great team win. We didn't even have 11 tonight. Scary Hours Wow," Harden wrote.

Last night's display was certainly impressive although it's important to note that they only managed to defeat the Magic by 7 points. After the Harden trade, the Nets are lacking when it comes to depth, which could be a huge factor when it comes time for the playoffs. Regardless, this Nets team is incredibly fun to watch and we're sure Kyrie will make it that much more entertaining.

Keep it locked to HNHH as we will continue to bring you more updates from the basketball world.

Lamar Jackson Injured During Loss To The Bills

Read more >>>

Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens were looking to exorcise the demons of previous playoff failures last night as they took on the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Divisional Round. For much of the game, the score was extremely close, with the Bills only having a slight edge. That all changed late in the third quarter when Jackson threw an interception in the endzone which was brought back 101 yards the other way, for a Bills touchdown.

On the ensuing possession, Jackson had to deal with a high snap and when he chased down the ball, he was hit hard which led to the back of his head smacking on the turf. The Ravens star was in quite a bit of pain while on the ground and was eventually brought to the locker room for concussion protocol. Eventually, it was revealed that Jackson wasn't in good enough shape to come back.

This ultimately proved to be a disappointing end to the Ravens season as it seemed like they were gaining steam at the right time. Meanwhile, the Buffalo Bills are looking like a team on a mission right now and now that they're in the AFC Championship Game, anything can happen.

Hopefully, Jackson is able to recover and will be good to go for a deep run next season.
