Ricky Martin Was A Guest Judge On ‘Drag Race: All Stars’ And These Thirst Tweets Are Everything

Y’all, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars is back and it’s got one of the best lineups in recent memory – probably since All Stars: Season 2. And with the first episode we got a very sexy treat with a very hot Ricky Martin behind the judges table for the very first time.

Though he was their to judge the queens on the competition, once the episode ended many were still left thinking about Martin – more than the competition. Viewers gushed over just how dreamy the singer is at 48-years-young.

And as thirsty folks do, they took to Twitter to share their thirst for Ricky Martin with the world.

Ricky Martin judged the debut episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars and he kinda stole the show.

Puerto Rico’s own Ricky Martin kicked off RPDR: All Stars, and anyone could talk about on Twitter was how ridiculously lust-worthy the man still is.

In fact, he was so hot his name shot to the number one topic in the U.S. Twitter trends as Drag Race aired, and for good reason. He is simply gorgeous and he really took his job as a judge seriously with meticulous observations. The superstar clearly looked like he was having a blast during his time.

Ricky Martin is just the latest in a series of pop icons like Robyn, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera and Nicki Minaj who have lit up the RPDR set with their fiery charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.

Ricky was seen throughout the episode compared to some of the others who only appeared when they were on the judging panel. He even kicked off the mini-challenge (which was a reading challenge) which became bilingual the minute he opened his yummy mouth.

Martin’s appearance was extra special because you could tell he was also enjoying himself.

As a RPDR super fan, it was amazing to see a guest judge get so involved and invested in the show, too. Martin was very obviously blown away by Shea Couleé’s pole dance routine – several cutaways showed him with his jaw literally dropped in awe of her ability. Ricky was really impressed with Shea’s routine, and his facial expressions showed it.

He was also super engaging with all of the girls during their time on the main stage as he made eye contact with many of them while they did their thing. Fans took note of that and so much more in their thirsty tweets that they put up during and after it aired.

Thirsty Twitter was full of memes and suggestive tweets to celebrate Martin’s appearance on the show.

Fans of both RPDR and Ricky Martin went wild on twitter, sharing suggestive meme after thirsty tweet. Honestly, I can’t blame them. Ricky really did look incredible and he was so fun to watch.

Some planned their meals around the guest judge.

Be sure to save room for dessert…

Thankfully, no, you can’t get pregnant from Ricky Martin lustfully biting his lower lip.

Can all are we agree that Ricky Martin is one of the best judges in drag race herstory?

Twitter’s AIs Prefer Ted Cruz With Boobs And White Skin Over Black

Twitter’s AIs Prefer Ted Cruz With Boobs And White Skin Over Black

Ever notice how on some social platforms like Twitter or Instagram that you yourself are mysteriously unable to crop your display images on your own? That’s because Twitter prefers to let their algorithms make the decision. Over the weekend users on Twitter discovered the surprising dangers of letting algorithms crop your own images.

Education tech researcher Colin Madland drew attention to the issue while speaking out about how the video-calling program Zoom, often crops the head out of his black person coworker while on calls.

It didn’t take long for Madland and other users to discover that Twitter’s AIs use discriminatory equations to prioritize certain faces as well. In short, the social platform’s AIs prefer white faces over Black ones.

In response to the discoveries, a Twitter spokesperson acknowledged that the company was looking into the issue “Our team did test for bias before shipping the model and did not find evidence of racial or gender bias in our testing. But it’s clear from these examples that we’ve got more analysis to do. We’re looking into this and will continue to share what we learn and what actions we take,” they stated.

Of course, Madland’s discovery is nothing new. In 2019, test results from the National Institute of Standards and Technology revealed that some of the strongest algorithms online were much more likely to confuse the faces of Black women than those of white women, or Black or white men. “The NIST test challenged algorithms to verify that two photos showed the same face, similar to how a border agent would check passports,” Wired points out. “At sensitivity settings where Idemia’s algorithms falsely matched different white women’s faces at a rate of one in 10,000, it falsely matched black women’s faces about once in 1,000—10 times more frequently. A one in 10,000 false match rate is often used to evaluate facial recognition systems.”

Still, it didn’t take long for users on the platform to ask what other physical preferences Twitter has.

Turns out the AIs prefer Ted Cruz with large anime breasts over a normal-looking Ted Cruz.

(To better understand this Tweet, click the link above)

The user who tested the image of Cruz, found that Twitter’s algorithm on the back end selected what part of the picture it would showcase in the preview and ultimately chose both images of Cruz with a large anime chest.

It’s nothing new that Twitter has its massive problems.

For a platform that so controls and oversees so much of what we consume and how we now operate, it’s scary to know how Twitter chooses to display people with different skin tones. The round of jokes and Twitter experiments by users has only revived concerns on how “learning” computer algorithms fuel real-world biases like racism and sexism.

Cardi B And Sister Sued Over Video Claiming To Show ‘Racist MAGA Supporters’

Cardi B And Sister Sued Over Video Claiming To Show ‘Racist MAGA Supporters’

Cardi B and her sister are being sued for defamation of character after a viral video taken by Hennessy Carolina Almánzar. The video shows two men, one wearing a MAGA hat, and one woman telling Hennessy to move her car, which is parked on the beach.

Earlier this month, Cardi B shared a video taken by her sister showing a confrontation over where a car was parked.

Cardi B, who is notorious for having widely broadcast Twitter feuds with people, posted the video in response to a tweet from Candace Owens. Owens is a controversial conservative figure whose brand is all about shock and awe. Owens famously said she thinks it would be okay if “Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well.”

Immediately, there was skepticism about the incident since the video starts during the confrontation.

Responding to nay-sayers, Cardi B shared a video of her sisters voice messages sent to her IG DMs. Hennessy claims in the messages that the white men were the aggressors against her and her girlfriend while they were on the beach.

The videos did not convince some people that her sister wasn’t in the wrong.

Cardi B’s tweet is filled with responses questioning the video and denying its authenticity. The argument immediately turned political because of the mention of Trump and Trump supporters. The conversation on Twitter is divided among people who believe Cardi B and her sister and those who don’t.

Now, Cardi B and Hennessy are being sued by the beachgoers in the video.

“These peaceful Suffolk County residents were quietly enjoying a Sunday at the Smith Point beach with their families, when rap celebrity Hennessy Carolina suddenly approached them, raging, spitting, insulting, assaulting, defaming and threatening them, all the while videotaping them because one of them wore a MAGA hat,” beachgoers’ Miller Place attorney John Ray said, according to ABC7NYC.

The lawsuit claims defamation of character because of the language used in the video against them.

According to Billboard, plaintiffs Peter Caliendo, Pauline Caliendo, and Manuel Alarcon claim that they had approached Hennessy and her girlfriend, Michelle Diaz, blocked them in with how she parked her car. The lawsuit states that the men asked for Diaz to move her car and that’s when Hennessy started to record the video and hurl names and insults at them.

This story is developing and mitú will be updating as the story unfolds.
