GAY PRIDE AFTERMATH: NYPD COP FIRED FOR GOING BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY

imageNEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles®) – Police officers, for the most part, are rewarded or promoted for going beyond the “call of duty.” But not this officer with the New York Police Department (NYPD).  He got fired.

The still unnamed officer went beyond  his call of duty on Sunday by dancing with a gay man during the Pride Festival.  The cop showed some serious moves to the delight of hundreds of spectators.

This morning, as the officer reported for duty, he received his pink slip from his supervisor. The letter stated: ” NYPD appreciates your going beyond the call of duty, but you can’t do it while you’re on duty — especially in your police uniform.”

Upon hearing the news, several New York gay bars reached out to the officer, offering him a job as security guard or bouncer.

The Adobo Chronicles® could not independently confirm the police officer’s sexual orientation.

 

MEXICAN BILLIONAIRE WANTS TO BUY MISS USA AND MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANTS FROM DONALD TRUMP

MEXICO CITY, Mexico (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – First, it was Univision that severed its relationship with Donald Trump.  Now NBC Universal has followed suit.

Both networks are partners with Trump who owns the Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants.  The pageants have always been aired on Univision and NBC.

The souring of Trump’s relationships with the networks was an offshoot of the business mogul’s comments when he announced his candidacy for president of the United States. During that announcement, he promised that if elected, he would close the southern border so that Mexico would stop sending “rapists, drug addicts and criminals.”

Miss USA which is scheduled on July 12, 2015 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, will not be aired by either network.  The pageant’s future and that of Miss Universe remain unknown.

Until now.

The second richest man in the world, Mexican Carlos Slim Helú, just offered to buy the Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants from Trump for an undisclosed amount.

Known as the “Warren Buffett of Mexico,” Helú’s current net worth is estimated at $71.2 Billion, second only to that of Bill Gates.

“I want to give Trump a dose of his own medicine,” Helú said. ” If he thinks we Mexicans are nothing but rapists, addicts and criminals, then this Mexican wants him out for good — from Miss USA, Miss Universe and from all other his other business holdings. I will continue to buy him out.”

Both Univision and NBC Universal said that if Helú succeeds in buying the pageants from Trump, they would be happy to re-establish their partnership with the popular beauty contests.

The Adobo Chronicles® was unsuccessful in reaching Trump for comment or reaction to the proposed purchase.

GLITCH: CONSERVATIVES UNABLE TO UPLOAD RAINBOW PRIDE FILTER TO THEIR FACEBOOK PROFILE PHOTOS

SILICON VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles®) – From the Atlantic to the Pacific, from sea to shining sea, rainbow-colored filters are showing up on Facebook pages — all in the name of marriage equality.

Facebook profile photos are now sporting the colors of the gay flag. It all started soon after the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling Friday, declaring that marriage is a constitutional right for all — gay or straight.  The popular social network now enables Facebook users to upload the Pride colors that serve as a filter to their profile photos.

But there is huge glitch.

It appears that that if Facebook detects that the user is a conservative, member of the religious right, or has posted anti gay-marriage comments in the past, a different filter is uploaded  and it’s not anything close to the rainbow colors.

Among the first to notice the glitch was Texas Governor Greg Abbott who has criticized the Supreme Court ruling and is asking his constituents to face the ruling with civil disobedience.

Others with similar experience included Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Senator Ted Cruz.
