“My name is Tituss Burgess. Im an Emmy Nominated Actor for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt currently streaming on Netflix. That’s besides the point. But watch it,” Burgess’ review begins instantly proving credibility because there can’t be a person on the planet who doesn’t love Tituss.
The rest of the review details how things quickly escalated with Franks Express. Here is a timeline of events:
11 a.m.: Burgess calls to arrange a pick up of his couch. The representative quotes that they will be at his home at 1 p.m.
1 p.m.: No movers.
1:30 p.m.: Still no movers. Burgess calls the company again to check on the arrival, the representative tells him that he is late and will give him a discount in exchange for a good Yelp review. Burgess, understandably, asks that the job be completed before he does that, and the representative tells him, “no review no show.”Texting back and forth continues for 45 minutes. During this time, the representative calls Burgess a nasty, anti-gay slur.
“It completely threw my entire day….I’m going to post this to Twitter, to my Instagram, to my Facebook. You messed with the wrong Queen,” Burgess wrote.
He perfectly recapped his scathing review on Instagram.
A video posted by Tituss Burgess (@titusssawthis) on Jul 13, 2016 at 11:31am PDT
And shared both the review and the saved text messages to Twitter. Warning for anyone out there who is sensitive to anti-LGBT language, one of the messages contains an anti-gay slur.
The above tweet also includes a telephone number that does not match the Franks Express Yelp page, however, when we Google searched the number, it brought up another moving company that has several numbers and several different names, and has many reviews that users have flagged as a scam. It is not clear whether Franks Express is affiliated with this company.
Franks Express has responded to Burgess on Yelp, claiming they had nothing to do with the incident and that Burgess never called them. However, it’s clear from the text messages that Burgess dealt with some unprofessional mover via phone.
At the moment, Yelp is monitoring the Franks Express page “for content related to media reports.”
Fag activists are hurling a giant LGBTQ dance party right outside Mike Pence’s house

Chevy Chase, the quiet D.C. neighborhood soon to be home to Vice President-elect Mike Pence, is about to get truly, really loud.
Activists behind WerkForPeace and #DisruptJ20 have joined together to plan a huge queer dancing party outside of Pence’s new home this Wednesday, Jan. 18 th. Queer dancers and their allies will follow a dancing route through Pence’s new neighborhood, hoping to get as close as possible to his home.
“We have planned a route to dancing through Pence’s neighborhood and celebrate queerness, leaving behind traces of rainbow and glitter that he is bound to see and never forget, ” Firas Nasr, a representative from WerkForPeace, told Mashable in an email. “Our most important point is to celebrate our love for one another and our diversity through dance and self-expression. He will know we are there! “
LGBTQ activists are deeply concerned about the vice president-elect’s recordon issues pertaining to the gay community. In the past, Pence expressed support for conversion therapy, a dangerous practise currently opposed by the American Medical Association.
Trump himself has promised to sign the First Amendment Defense Act,which would allow business, landowners and even hospitals to turn away LGBTQ people if their needs violate the owners’ religious beliefs.
WerkForPeace wants to make its opposition known( and, in a welcome growth, actually have fun at the same period ). The group, coordinated after the Pulse nightclub massacre, has schemed similar dancings in the past. And members are expecting a large turnout for the Pence protest 😛 TAGEND
“Over 2,000 people have expressed interest, and virtually 500 people have[ RSVPd] to come out and werrrkkk! Yas queen! ” Nasr told Mashable .
Pence’s new neighborhood hasn’t exactly welcomed him with open arms. Previously, Pence’s neighbours plastered the region with lesbian flags and signs that read “This Neighborhood Trusts Women.” Pence has also expressed support for defunding Schemed Parenthood and overruling Roe V. Wade.
“We choose to bring the dance floor to the streets and assert that #WeAreHere and #WeWillDance. No longer will we remain silent about intolerance in our country, especially when it is occupying one of the highest positions in government. Instead, we choose to stand together and #werkforpeace, ” Nasr told Mashable .

Sesame Street’s holiday special is an old-timey pleasure
4 months, 1 day ago
The snow tumbles down on Muppets in top hats as a mustachioed Cookie Monster offers a Santa’d Jim Gaffigan a chocolate chip cookie. This is the scene on situated as Sesame Street shoots its first holiday special in 10 years.
“Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas” is a Dickensian tale told through a furry lens of children’s television. Much of the special takes place in an old-timey Sesame Street populated by the ancestors of the street’s familiar, fuzzy faces.
Set designer David Gallo took modern Sesame Street back to the 19 th century with sepia tones, ivy-covered iron gates and laundry hang by clothespins over the familiar cobblestone. The characters themselves underwent their own period makeovers, trading their regular clothes and ogre fur for dashing, hand-sewed tweed outerwear and exaggerated facial hair.
The story starts inside the bedroom of Elmo as his daddy tells him the story of a Sesame Street from long ago that was so unfriendly, Santa put the entire block on the naughty list. Merely through the kindness and cheer of Elmo’s great-great-grandmonster( also named Elmo) does Sesame Street transform into the warm fuzzy-filled neighborhood millions of children know today.
That’s the short version the longer version that unfolds in “Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas” includes musical numbers featuring Broadway legend Audra McDonald, Girls superstar Zosia Mamet and Jim Gaffigan in the perfectly casted role of Santa Claus.
In between takes, Gaffigan sits in his sleigh, joking with the Muppeteers and Muppets readying for the next shot. He skeptically nibbles on a cookie handed over by a fuzzy-handed ogre, and says, “All I savor is beard” with a hearty and jolly laugh worthy of the red suit he’s wearing.
When asked how producers settled on Gaffigan for the role of Santa, Brown Johnson, EVP and Creative Director of Sesame Workshop, told: “He’s the perfect Santa, very fun, and very funny. And he must love kids because he has so many! He had such a good time with us that he did all of his press interviews that day in his Santa costume in his Santa voice.”
The father-of-five and clear Sesame Street fan paused before wrapping his final day on set by asking the Muppets to shoot selfies and videos for his kids. Because only the coolest of papas pal around with Bert and Ernie.

BONUS: ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ reimagined as a homemade trailer
One unfortunate boyfriend received this out after he made what he thought was an innocuous comment on a Burger King Instagram photo.
He felt the need to share the story of his drive-through experience with his “girl” to the wide world of Instagram. He likely didn’t think that anyone he knew would insure his comment among the hundreds that pepper Burger King’s Instagram.
But lo and behold, person did see it.
Instagrammer shanlee_rose then proceeded to tag some of her girlfriends in the post, so she could get some backup on the issue.
“F ** king knew it, ” one of her friends commiserated.
“I told you I considered him with a girl, ” the other concurred. All evidence pointed to the inevitable fact that this guy was about to get roasted alive in Burger King’s Instagram commentaries, of all places.
But the boyfriend wasn’t going to go down without defending himself first.
So, with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we’d just like to remind you to not be stupid on social media. Because relationships can be made and broken anywhere.
