No time for #BNGWTF today – we’re busy prepping for tomorrow’s #EcoHustle! In addition to our awesome sponsors Baltimore Community ToolBank and the Law Offices of Wilhelm & Manuelides, we are proud to partner with Baltimore Energy Challenge and to feature a special VIP guest at the after party at Bar Liquorice. It’s going to be epic! There’s still a little time left to register your team: http://ecohustle2015.eventbrite.com #TheHustleIsReal
As a resident of Baltimore City, Diva has been quiet this week processing the events that have transpired in our great city. My heart goes out to the family of Freddie Gray and to Freddie himself. I exclaim WTF at the extreme pain and terror he experienced prior to his untimely death and another WTF at his homicide at the hands of police who had no right or reason to pursue or arrest him. #BNGWTF
Too many people have had too much to say in criticism of our city and our leadership. I will not add to their noise by responding to that (except to say shut the fuck up). Instead I will express pride in all of those who have done their absolute best in making decisions, showing leadership and showing us who they are. We must not forget this when it comes time to vote in the next election (and we all MUST vote). I am so fucking proud of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Representative Elijah E. Cummings, Marilyn Mosby, Esq., City Councilman Nick Mosby (my Councilman!), Senator Catherine E. Pugh, and the many good men and women of the Baltimore Police Department – the fucked up few do not represent the whole. I am also fucking amazed at, but not surprised by, all of the individuals and organizations who have united together in this trying time. #OneBaltimore
The Fracking Moratorium Bill is sitting on Governor Hogan’s desk. But he hasn’t signed it yet. The fuck is he waiting for?! #BNGWTF
He is procrastinating but you don’t have to – tell Hogan #DontFrackMD now: http://bit.ly/1E9Ro0E

Inmate or Slickster? I wouldn’t give either of these creeps a dime!
Pastor (and we use that word as loosely as possible) Creflo Dollar wants his congregation to cough up $65 MILLION(!) to buy a new jet for him to spread the “good” word. This is so incredibly offensive financially, religiously, logically and environmentally. We would dedicate this WTF Friday to Creflo himself, but at this point I have to ask the legion of morons who listen to this guy every day – What the fuck are you doing?! #BNGWTF
We were gonna go with That’s So Toucan for this WTF Friday (not because she defended WhatARod-ner’s dis of Michelle Obama, but because her vocab sucks. Yes honey, it was “racist-like”.), but instead we have to give it to Donald Trump and his possible bid for President. The only possible benefit would be that the Celebrity Apprentice would finally be over. Nah…not worth it! If this clown gets too far down this particular road there will be hell toupee. Donald Trump for President…the fuck? #BNGWTF
