Frank Ocean’s dad sues him over homophobic claims

Calvin Cooksey, the father of American musician Frank Ocean is suing his son over claims that he is homophobic. 
This lawsuit is in response to a Tumblr post Frank penned down last summer stating his father used homophobic words when he was a boy.

Frank recalled, “I was 6 years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress f****t as he dragged me out of a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty.”

Calvin wants his son to pay $14.5 million in damages because the post damaged his financial opportunities in film and music. He reportedly also sued Russell Simmons in 2014 for $142 million for claiming he was a dead beat father.

Lazy man, always looking for people to sue.

    Another bogus, pro-industry article spreading misinformation and pseudoscience to promote the agrochemical industry.

  • Let’s not forget that there is plenty of food to go around. That is not the problem. The problem is logistics. And the biotech industry couldn’t give a rats ass about getting the food to the hungry people.

    “Prof. Benjamin Ubi, the President, Biotechnology Society of Nigeria (BSN), has identified food insecurity as an underlining cause of some of the greatest challenges in the country.
    Ubi, who said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja, added that biotechnology would ensure adequate food security in the country.
    “We recognise that food security is paramount and biotechnology, the green alternative policy of the government, will achieve its goal of ending hunger, ensuring food security and promoting sustainable agriculture.” No,that’s all false! Bio-Tech crops have been grown for almost 20 years in the U.S and has done little to none to alleviate hunger,food security and sustainable agriculture!
