A stalwart in American entertainment has come to an end as Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus is ending for good in May 2017.  Billed as the “Greatest Show on Earth” for 146 years, the company is pointing to low attendance and high operating cost among the reasons for the shutdown. 

Animal rights activists are declaring victory for the animals who were reportedly subjected to maltreatment and abuse at the hands of their handlers and trainers.  The storied company won a $15.75 million judgement against activists in 2015, but suffered in the court of public opinion.  Last year the company disbanded the elephant corp which forced a drastic decline in attendance. 

Circuses have long been a part of American society, offering rarely seen animals performing human like feats to entertain the transient crowds.

Tippi Hedren,86, says in her memoirs famed director Alfred Hitchcock sexually assaulted her in the 1960’s leaving her feeling, “shocked and Repulsed.”

She has previously spoken about the director’s alleged treatment of her, but has gone into more detail in her new book.   She said, "The harder I fought him, the more aggressive he became. Then he started adding threats, as if he could do anything to me that was worse than what he was trying to do at that moment."

She said in her new book of Hedren, "looked directly into my eyes, his face red with rage, and promised, 'I'll ruin your career.”  If you are too young to remember movies like, The Birds and Marnie both of which were directed by Hitchcock, then maybe you know her daughter’s work, Ms. Melanie Griffith.

Kevin Gates was found guilty of battery after kicking a female fan during a show in Lakeland, Florida.   The popular rapper was sentenced to 180 days in Polk County jail after a brutal kick of a fan who she says touched him to get his attention for her friend. 

Miranda Dixon, 18, was kicked in the chest after she grabbed his legs multiple times and according to Gates own words, “I kicked them, I wanted them off me.” Dixon said of the incident, “I was trying to get his attention for my friend.”

Reportedly, he said the first time she grabbed him he continued performing but on the second pass he became violent and forcefully kicked her.    I feel comfortable in joining the chorus of voices saying Kevin Gates is a Jackass.
