Prisoner Starts His Own Cooking Show On TikTok And, Like, How

Another day, another prisoner blowing up on TikTok. Jeron Combs, 31, is the latest TikTok prisoner sensation with his cooking show. You read that right. The man is creating foods in his prison cell and broadcasting it to the rest of the world via TikTok.

One of his most popular videos is the burrito that he was able to put together in his prison cell. The 31-year-old, who is in prison for first-degree murder and attempted murder, took his 1.3 million TikTok followers through a step-by-step guide to create the burritos.

We can’t be sure but it does seems like he cooks for all of those around him.

We don’t know how many burritos he made but it is clear he is cooking for more than just he and his cellmate. Unless he and his cellmate are hungry enough to eat all of those burritos.

He has managed to use his metal bed frame to double as a griddle to cook the food.

His bed frame is literally used to heat up his food and to make those burritos hot and fresh. Not going to lie, they look pretty delicious.

He even shows how he is able to heat up his bed frame to create the griddle: a hot plate.

Genius, tbh. However, how was he able to get everything that he needed in order to create his griddle bed? Also, how did he set up a TikTok account and manage to post regularly? His burrito video has more than 4 million views alone.

For some, this is what the Internet is for.

Social media has a way of always outdoing itself with wild content. Like, this is not the first nor will it be the last prisoner to use TikTok or any other social media platform to flex. Who can forget the prisoner who posted to Instagram about the Popeye’s chicken sandwich?

For others, this is some wholesome content.

Sure, the video itself is pretty fine. However, do not forget that the man is in prison for murder. So, while the prison burrito might be a fun gimmick, it is still odd to celebrate.

A whole other group of people is just made their boy got exposed.

What do you think about the prison burrito video?

The TikToker Who Put Fleetwood Mac Back On The Charts Will Perform At The Inauguration’s Virtual Parade

TikToker Nathan Apodaca has been giving many of us hope as he’s seemed to have had a pretty great past year – despite everything that’s been going on in the world.

Now, it’s been announced that he’ll get to participate in this year’s presidential inauguration festivities. Thanks to white nationalist terrorists and threats made against several targets in the nation’s capital, that inauguration will look very different this year but we’re still excited to see what Apodaca comes up with for his part in the virtual parade.

Nathan Apodaca, known on TikTok as @420doggface208, will take part in a virtual inauguration event.

TikTok star Nathan Apodaca, who went viral in 2020 for a video in which he drinks cranberry juice from the bottle and lip-syncs along to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” will be a part of President-elect Joe Biden’s virtual “Parade Across America” inauguration celebration, local Idaho newspaper the Post Register reported.

Apodaca, an Idaho Falls resident also known by his social media handle “DoggFace,” became one of the country’s top social media stars last fall after one of his videos, filmed on the way to work in September, went viral. The success of the video not only brought Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks to TikTok to create Apodaca’s vibes, but also catapulted the 1977 single “Dreams” into a Billboard Hot 100 chart placement in 2020.

Apodaca’s agent, yes TikTokers have agents these days, told the Post Register that his contribution to the virtual event will be a video of him skateboarding that was filmed in his home town of Idaho Falls.

The event, “Parade Across America,” is a reimagination of an in-person inauguration parade.

This year’s inauguration will look very different from years past. Not only is it coming on an historic attack against the U.S. Capitol, but it also won’t include the outgoing President and First Lady.

The event is being dubbed the “Parade Across America” and is a sort of reimagination of an in person inaugural parade. Both President Biden and Vice President Harris are set to participate in the festivities after they’re sworn in and make a brief visit to Arlington National Cemetery. The event will feature people and representatives from all 50 states and several U.S. territories

Other stars joining include Jon Stewart, Andra Day, and The New Radicals, uniting for the first time in 22 years to perform their iconic song “You Get What You Give.”

Chicago’s Mi Tocaya Is Offering Up Free Mexican Homemeals For Undocumented Community

Undocumented communities are being left out of Covid relief plans. Chef Diana Dávila of Mi Tocaya in Chicago is working to help undocumented restaurant worker in the time of Covid. Abuse of undocumented workers is rampant in certain industries and Chef Dávila hopes to offer some kind of help.

Mi Tocaya is a Mexican restaurant in Chicago’s Logan Square that wants to help the community.

Covid-19 has devastated the hospitality industry with restaurants being hit exceptionally hard. Restaurants have been forced to close their doors for good as the virus dragged on with no decent relief plan from the federal government. As several countries financially support citizens to avoid economic disaster, the U.S. government has given citizens $1,800 total to cover 10 months of isolating and business closures.

Namely, Mi Tocaya is working to help the undocumented community.

Mi Tocaya, a family-run restaurant, is teaming up with Chicago’s Top Chefs and local non-profits Dishroulette Kitchen and Logan Square Neighborhood Association. The goal is to highlight the issues facing the undocumented community during the pandemic.

The initiative called Todos Ponen, is all about uplifting members of our community in a time of severe need. The restaurant is creating healthy Mexican family meals for those in need.

”We asked ourselves; How can we keep our doors open, provide a true service to the community, maintain and create jobs, and keep the supply chain intact by supporting local farmers and vendors. This is the answer,” Chef Dávila said in a statement. “I confidently believe The TODOS PONEN Logan Square Project addresses all of the above and can very well be easily implemented in any community. Our goal is to bring awareness to the lack of resources available to the undocumented workforce- the backbone of our industry.”

The initiative starts in February.

Mi Tocaya is offering 1000 free meals for local farmers and undocumented restaurant workers. The meals are available for pickup Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 2800 W Logan Blvd, Chicago, IL 60647. to make this happen, Mi Tocaya also needs your help.

The restaurant has teamed up with two nonprofits to make sure that they can scale their operation to fulfill their commitment. They are also asking for donations to make sure they can do what they can to help undocumented restaurant workers.

According to Eater LA, 8 million restaurant workers have been laid off since the pandemic started. Some restaurants have had to lay off up to 91 percent of their staff because of Covid, about 10 percent of those are undocumented. In the cities, that number is as high as 40 percent of the laid-off restaurant staff are undocumented.

“People don’t want to talk about the undocumented workforce, but they’re part of our daily routine in most restaurants,” Jackson Flores, who manages the operations of Mi Tocaya, said in a statement. “They are in the toughest position in the whole economy because they’re an invisible part of it. Restaurant worker advocacy groups have added the creation of relief funds to their agendas, but there have yet to be long-term changes in protections for undocumented workers. Without access to unemployment benefits and other government resources, this group is especially vulnerable.”
