THE DOUBLE STANDARD FOR WOMEN AROUND SPORTS
I don't usually weigh in on HOT TOPICS but this week seemed silly to anyone who saw these two stories happen one after the other. A woman cheats and is crucified online. An aging NBA player cheats and is applauded for being civil about the whole thing.

- •TuesdayThe woman who cheated, Kehlani, attempts suicide. Chris Brown weighs in and claims its for publicity.
- •WednesdayA video is leaked that LA Laker D'Angelo Russell took as a prank of fellow Laker Nick Young. In it, Young admits to cheating on his fiancé Iggy Azalea. The Internet freaks out... on Russell.
