Welcome to #InMyFeed, ESSENCE’s daily digital show that offers you a cheat sheet of the hottest topics already on your timeline. We’re sending prayers to Angela Simmons and her family following news that her former fiancé, Sutton Tennyson, was shot and killed in his Atlanta home. Police have few details about the shooting and an investigation is currently underway. Academy Award-winning director Steve McQueen wants to brighten things up with a musical. The director recently shared his plans, adding, “Right now, [the world] is dark, it’s heavy, there’s no ifs, buts, maybes about it, it’s so unsure and uncertain and I think I need to shake off the blues and make us all happy.” And, actress Rebel Wilson has resorted to blocking Black critics who called her out over her recent rom-com comments. While promoting her upcoming movie Isn’t It Romantic, the star wrongfully stated, “I’m proud to be the first ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy.” Um, ever heard of Queen Latifah?!
