A Latino Father Falsely Accused Of Murder Was Saved By And Episode Of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

If this man wasn’t at a Dodgers game, he could have been facing the death penalty for a crime he did not commit.

In May of 2003, baseball fan Juan Catalan went to a Los Angeles Dodgers game with his daughter. That same day, a 16-year-old girl named Martha Puebla was shot and killed in front of her home. Catalan was arrested and accused of committing the murder, which led to a long and tedious court trial. According to the Los Angeles Times, police zeroed in on Catalan because Puebla “testified in a murder case in which Catalan’s brother, Mario, was a co-defendant.” Catalan’s lawyer had to prove that Catalan was at the Dodgers game during the time of the murder. Fortunately, they got a break through an improbable ally — comedian Larry David (“Seinfeld,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”).

In this new Netflix doc, “Long Shot,” you’ll learn about Catalan’s case and the process he had to go through before he could prove his innocence. Keep an eye out for this crime documentary, which will be released on Netflix on September 19th.

Cardi B Is Unapologetically Herself And Proves It By Shutting Down This Caller – In Spanish – During Her Vacilón De La Mañana Interview

Cardi B wants you to know that she’s not making music for your kids or your grandkids. In a recent interview on New York City’s FM 97.9 “El Vacilón De La Mañana,” a show known for making your dad laugh and your abuela blush – appropriate for Cardi B’s “get out of my face” attitude – an abuela called in to speak with Cardi. The abuela, trying to be as respectful as she saw fit, tells Cardi that her kids and grandkids love her music, but she has one problem with it herself: the swear words. Cardi B, wasn’t having it.

Cardi B had to pump the breaks on this grandma who was trying to tell the rapper about her music. And she did it in pure Dominicana fashion.

She stops the caller with a strong case for artistic independence saying, in Spanish, “No no no no no, let me tell you, I’m not raising your kids or grandkids. I’m not raising them. The only kids I’m going to have to explain myself to are my kids.” She goes on to further explain how not expressing herself the way she wants to would leave her depressed.

“I’m not going to water down my life, just to be a good example to people,” she said. “Then I won’t be who I am.” Word up, tell’ em, Cardi!
