*Ice-T’s wife, Coco Austin, defended herself over the weekend from online critics who accused her of cultural appropriation for getting cornrows and naming the hairstyle “Da Coco Swoop.”On Saturday, the reality TV star shared two Instagram videos explaining that there’s nothing racial behind her braiding her long blonde hair. “So, recently I got social media’s panties in a bunch because I did braids to my hair. This is so stupid,” she said in the video.
*Apollo Nida’s fiancée Sherien Almufti wants you to know that she’s not having sex until they tie the knot and he’s released from prison… whichever comes first. Hmm, that means he ain’t getting any nookie for the foreseeable future. Well, we know what that means and we’ll leave it at that. Anyway as you know, Nida is serving an 8-year prison sentence for racketeering, and he won’t be receiving any of that good-good from his special lady until he makes an honest woman out of her.
“Insecure’s” showrunner Prentice Penny took to social media to address an article penned by former VIBE writer Jozen Cummings about the several instances he noticed sex scenes on “Insecure” and there not being a condom present. “This season when Issa and Lawrence have their moment of breakup sex, once again there is no mention or showing of a condom.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
