Josie Harris says Floyd Mayweather deleted her Instagram account over tell-all book

Josie Harris

Josie Harris lost her Instagram account for a handful of days, and she says Floyd Mayweather was behind the move because he wants to silence her.

Harris, who has three children with Mayweather and was the victim in the assault case that led to Mayweather being jailed in 2012, said on Twitter Sept. 4 that her Instagram account had been deleted. Harris believes Mayweather shut down her account to silence her from promoting her upcoming tell-all book about her relationship with him.

Harris rarely uses her Twitter account because Instagram is her preferred social media network, but she started using Twitter frequently while her account was disabled.

On Tuesday, Harris implied on Twitter that Floyd was behind her Instagram account being deleted:

Harris’ Instagram account was reinstated Tuesday after she sent an email to the social media company.

Bossip, which posted a copy of Harris’ email, says Harris is considering legal action against Mayweather. They say Harris believes Mayweather has a contact at Instagram who helps him shut down accounts. Bossip noted that both Shantel Jackson and Princess Love — two ex-girlfriends of Floyd — had their accounts shut down after getting on his bad side.

Chris Berman, Trent Dilfer praise NFL’s handling of Ray Rice (Video)

Chris Berman and Trent Dilfer knew they would have to address the Ray Rice situation at some point while announcing the San Diego Chargers-Arizona Cardinals game on Monday night, and they still did a horrible job of preparing. Their biggest mistake was praising the NFL’s handling of the situation.

You can watch the video of the cringe-worthy discussion the two broadcasters had over at Deadspin. First, Dilfer began by talking about some football team he coaches and how the NFL did a great job sending a message to high school kids by suspending Rice indefinitely.

“The NFL sent a strong message,” Dilfer said. “It’s more than being a great football player, you’ve got to win off the field as well.”

Berman agreed. He also thinks Roger Goodell and company sent a powerful and admirable message.

“I think the NFL, which prides itself on being leaders — it’s even larger than just football,” Berman said. “As you suggest, youth football — the NFL has an obligation, in my mind, to help those who need help right now. We could make a list of what that means, but this is something that (you) take a leadership role in society. There are those who need help right now. Get involved. The message is clear to anybody playing football.”

Just as Berman was about to finish his thought, it was almost as if divine intervention took over and stopped him from spewing anymore nonsense.

What the hell were these two talking about? The way they were talking, you would swear the whole two-game suspension thing never happened. Their praise would have made sense if the NFL didn’t cover up the video and brought the hammer down on Rice in the first place. Berman and Dilfer should be embarrassed.

Dodgers commit comedy of errors on one play (Video)

Clayton Kershaw gave up three runs last night? How is this possible? The lefthander is the best pitcher on the planet and had an ERA of 1.70 heading into Monday night’s game against the San Diego Padres. Wait, never mind, two of those runs were unearned on one of the most comical series of errors you will ever see.

It all started when Padres catcher Rene Rivera hit a routine fly ball to center field in the sixth inning with one out and runners on first and second. Yasiel Puig made the catch and for some reason tried to double up the runner at first by throwing behind him. The throw got away, allowing the runners to advance to second and third. It got even uglier from there.

Dodgers catcher AJ Ellis, who was backing up the play at first, threw to second to try to get the runner who was advancing. That throw went into center field and allowed Yangervis Solarte to score. But wait, there’s more. Hanley Ramirez scooped up Ellis’ wild throw and fired it toward the plate. That throw was also way off-line, and outfielder Rymer Liriano came in to score. Kershaw couldn’t believe his eyes.

Clayton-Kershaw

Fortunately, the Dodgers came out of the inning clinging to a five-run lead. Kershaw ended up with his 18th win of the season and actually lowered his ERA to 1.67. You know how they tell you in Little League to not throw the ball around? Don’t do that if you make it to the big leagues, either.

Fox & Friends host cracks stairs joke about Ray Rice elevator video

Brian KilmeadeWhen discussing the Ray Rice punch video, it’s probably best to avoid jokes about the situation. FOX & Friends TV show host Brian Kilmeade is probably learning that today.

FOX & Friends played the Ray Rice video on their show Monday morning and brought up that Rice and Janay Palmer got married even after the fight. They then talked about how Rihanna went back to Chris Brown after the domestic violence incident and transitioned into the Jay-Z/Solange fight.

That’s when Kilmeade got cute.

“I think the message is take the stairs.”

I think the message is think before you speak.

Mike Wallace goes third person in postgame interview (Video)

Mike WallaceLook out, NFL — Mike Wallace is a man on a mission. Not only did the Miami Dolphins wide receiver catch seven passes for 81 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against a New England Patriots defense that features Darrelle Revis, he also went third person when speaking to reporters after the game.

“Here’s the thing about Mike,” Wallace said. “Mike don’t ever fear nobody, ever in life, period. Don’t matter who it is…”

Wallace must have been feeling pretty good after his team’s big win. We don’t remember him going third person during his disappointing 2013 season, but maybe we just weren’t paying close enough attention. Either way, if there was an award for sounding like a D-bag in your postgame press conference, he would have taken the honors on Sunday.

Mike signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Dolphins in March 2013. If Mike can get on the same page with Ryan Tannehill and Mike can continue to not fear anybody, the Dolphins may actually get some return on their investment in Mike.

Dallas Cowboys memes are the best

James Harden Cowboys coordinator

The Dallas Cowboys lost their season opener to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in spectacular fashion, and the jokes and memes came out in full force. There were so many good ones it was hard to keep up, but we did our best to include them all in one place.

The one you see at the top featuring James Harden as Cowboys defensive coordinator started making the rounds after Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson tweeted it. If you don’t get the reference, the Cowboys defense was last in the NFL in yards allowed last season. Harden is also derided for his lack of defense, which you can see in this lowlight video.

But that wasn’t the only strong Cowboys or Tony Romo meme. Check out some of our other favorites below:

This was Romo’s 11th career 3-interception game. Cowboys fans are not at all surprised by it.

Antonio Brown kicks Browns punter Spencer Lanning in face (Video)

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown momentarily turned Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns into a WWE match. While rattling off a 35-yard punt return in the second quarter, Brown decided to kick Browns punter Spencer Lanning directly in the face.

Brown was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness. The play was pretty much unprecedented, but the officials had to call something. There may not be anything in the rule book about drop-kicking opponents, but you definitely, definitely can’t do this:

Antonio-Brown-kicks-Browns-punter

Brown may end up having to pay a fine for that one.

Alas, we have some clarity from Lanning on what happened:

Ah, yes, that explains it.
