Brooklyn resident Sam Saia was reportedly assaulted on the New York City subway system after asking a fellow straphanger for more leg room. The attacker has since been jailed, but Saia is now facing a round of death threats from extremists who say she is now getting “a taste of reality and diversity.”
According to the New York Daily News, Saia was assaulted by Derek Smith after telling him he was “manspreading” (a nickname given to the way men take up excessive amount of space on subway seats). Smith had launched into a profane tirade during the assault: “B*tch, you ain’t nothing! I’ve raped white b*tches like you, you f*cking c*nt!” he reportedly yelled. A fellow rider rushed to Saia’s aid and forcibly ejected Smith from the train.
Video of the incident was caught by other passengers and shared on social media:

Hayley Geftman-Gold, a CBS executive who made a controversial social media post about this week’s Las Vegas shooting, has received a series of death threats following the scandal.
According to the New York Daily News, Geftman-Gold worked as a vice president and senior counsel in strategic transactions at CBS before being fired for her insensitive post about the horrific mass killing that occurred earlier in the week.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans are often republican gun toters,” she reportedly wrote on Facebook.
“Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families,” said CBS in a statement, announcing her firing.
Now, multiple police reports suggest that she has received multiple death

A male nurse in Pennsylvania has admitted to secretly taping female patients while they undressed. According to People, 45-year-old James Close has pled guilty to 48 charges including three dozen charges of invasion of privacy.
The former Penn Medicine nurse secretly recorded female patients, including a 17-year-old, while at the Bucks County dermatology office.
“I think it is a step toward closure,” said Robert J. Mongeluzzi, a lawyer for three of the victims, on Friday. “Obviously, there was a system failure in how an institution could have put a male nurse in a situation with females unsupervised.”
Close was charged in February. The teen patient discovered Close’s phone on the floor as she was in a private light-therapy booth. On the screen, she saw the reflection of her naked body.
When authorities took his iPhone, they found 18 videos of seven other female patients between the ages of 20 and 70.
Close’s sentencing has been deferred pending a sex-offender evaluation. His lawyer says

Five people were charged with murder after two Colorado teens were found dead along the side of a rural road, police said on Thursday.
Gustavo Marquez, 19, allegedly confessed to investigators that Natalie Cano-Partida, 16, and Derek Greer, 15, were kidnapped in March and shot multiple times by two other men at close range, the Associated Press reports.
Marquez reportedly said that one of his co-defendants, Diego Chacon, shot Cano-Partida, and another defendant, Marco Antonio Garcia-Bravo, shot Greer with the same gun.
Garcia-Bravo offered the 16-year-old girl a chance to say goodbye to her family via Facebook, but then snatched back the phone, telling her she was taking too long and had lost her chance, according to Marquez’s account.
Marquez was arrested a week after the killings, after an officer found him disrupting traffic while walking on a median. Marquez allegedly then told an officer that he had information about the teens.

Police are looking for a Florida man after he allegedly doused his pregnant girlfriend in gasoline and lit her on fire after an argument over cigarettes.
Noel Grullon, 32, allegedly lit the 27-year-old woman on fire in front of her two children on Thursday, according to Yahoo. The victim suffered second degree burns to her torso. It took her hours to admit to police that the burns came from her boyfriend, who is the father of her unborn baby.
“It took most of the day for her to finally admit to a social worker what had really happened to her. At first she was saying it was a barbecuing accident,” Hialeah Police Sgt. Carl Zogby told CBSNews.
According to an NBC affiliate, Grullon has a violent criminal past, with past charges that include armed robbery, armed carjacking, kidnapping and aggravated battery.

When will the Kardashian/Jenner clan learn? If you indulge in some off-the-wall, crazy obvious Photoshopping, your followers will notice it, they will call you out, and it will become a whole thing.
Khloe Kardashian is the latest A-lister to get accused of tampering with her social media pics. A promotional post shared earlier this week left a number of her followers raising their eyebrows.
“There’s something very wrong with this!” one commenter wrote, while another added, “Stop photoshopping yourself.”
“Let’s be honest, this photo was altered in some way,” another fan wrote. “Not to take away from all her hard work at fitness health, but it is very obvious this isn’t a realistic photo. For someone who has always been very blunt and straight up with the media and her fans, her trying to pass this off as real is a little disappointing.”
Others defended her.
“Who cares if her pic is photoshopped?”
