Matt Barnes On Vlad’s Viral Tweet About Video Games Causing Depression

In this clip, DJ Vlad asks former NBA champion Matt Barnes to share his thoughts on his highly publicized tweet that essentially denounced video games (because they are a form of depression). Matt reflects back to the days when used to play video games, such as Madden, during his playing career and said those were some of the most fun times of his life. This leads to a philosophical conversation about the importance of video games, making money from video games, and being addicted to video games. From there, the two men discuss DJ Vlad receiving death threats over the tweet, Kevin Durant’s pushback on the matter, and how video games can help with mental health.

Balenciaga Makes Lay’s Potato Chip Bag An Official, Crisp Fashion Statement

Fashionistas might want to take a bite out of the yummiest item to have come out of Spring/Summer 2023 catwalks: a Lay’s potato chip bag.

The look was first teased by Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia—often known simply as Demna—in June, when he attended Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts’ graduate fashion show toting a pack of Lay’s Original Wavy Potato Chips. The appearance fueled tittle-tattle about whether a snack-themed purse was in the works.

Well, before the idea got stale, the luxury house finally confirmed the moreish it-bag during its muddied presentation at Paris Fashion Week, where a couple of models were seen clutching Lay’s-branded calfskin bags and looking like ultimate snacks.

It appears that Balenciaga’s snack ‘bags’ will arrive in a few “flavors,” including classic, lime, and salt and vinegar. Closeup visuals shared by high-fashion curator Lil Jupiter on Instagram reveal that “Balenciaga Paris” are also branded on the clutches.

The bag retains a crinkled silhouette, scrunching in the middle as if perpetually being held in someone’s hand.

It’s too early for pricing details to be out, but you just know it’s going to be worth multiple crates of snacks. The perk is that you can fill this clutch with as many potato chips as you want. This won’t be one of those bags that comes with 50% air.

Influencer Flight Attendant With 3.5 Million Followers is Briefly Banned From TikTok After Colleagues Bombard Platform With Complaints

A flight attendant and social media influencer with more than 3.5 million followers had her account briefly closed down by TikTok after hundreds of flight attendants bombarded the platform with complaints about the content she was posting.

Cierra Huffman, who goes by the name Cierra Mistt on social media, was last known to be working for Republic Airways, a regional carrier that operates services on behalf of American Airlines and Delta Air Lines.

In recent weeks, Cierra has had her content featured across the tabloid press where she shared supposed but highly dubious ‘travel hacks‘ like booking a flight on Tuesday to get the cheapest deal and choosing a seat at the very back of the aircraft in the hope of getting upgraded to First Class.

The seemingly harmless content, however, has attracted the ire of a growing number of flight attendants across the industry who have accused Cierra of “spreading false information” and giving the flight attendant profession a bad name.

Controversially, Cierra has posted videos with tips on how passengers can join the ‘mile high club‘ without flight attendants noticing and one post went viral when she said that she would hang out with passengers after a flight if they were “hot”.

“Yes, flight attendants and pilots during our layovers we don’t only hang out with each other, we actually hang out a lot of times with our passengers,” Cierra said in the video.

“Whether it be a really hot guy or girl, or just a fun group of people, if you invite us to go hang out with you guys chances are we’re totally down.”

Cierra added: “In fact, I have a tonne of spicy stories that I could tell you about the passenger interactions I’ve personally had… but, I can’t do it on here.”

It has also been reported that Cierra has insinuated that flight attendants and pilots have sex mid-flight but what may have got her banned from TikTok was an allegation that she was using content from other influencers without their permission.

She has even stoked controversy over why some flight attendants won’t help passengers stow their baggage and raised questions about the safety of drinking tea and coffee onboard an airplane.

Cierra started her flight attendant career with Republic Airways in September 2021 and quickly started posting flight attendant content. In a recent response video, Cierra implored her detractors to “get a life”.

“The only thing that these comments are showing me is how bored you are, how jealous you are, how insecure you are. Get a life. I will continue to say whatever I want”.

However, Cierra no longer works for Republic, although she insists she is still working in the industry and say she respects her new employer’s social media policy.

“While it wasn’t ever a secret that I don’t work for my first airline anymore, I’m still very much, 100000% an active flight attendant,” Cierra said earlier this month.

“long story short: I’m still a flight attendant which is why I still post flight attendant content… I’m just not dumb enough to post in my company’s uniform/be affiliated specifically so that I can still post about my life and other jobs w/o having to worry about corporate approval or repercussions,” she continued.

Although some flight attendants have taken a serious disliking to Cierra’s content, many others have defended her right to post content of her choosing and have asked their colleagues to back down.
