Van Lathan Fired from TMZ


Van Lathan, the other Black guy on TMZ, has been fired...

According to reports Van was fired after getting into a heated discussion in the newsroom about politics with right wing TMZ reporter Michael J. Babcock.

Apparently the situation became so intense the segment had to be edited out and Van allegedly warned Babcock never to speak to him that way again or there would be trouble.

The source claims Van was sent to meet with TMZ lawyers, suspended, and later fired.

Fun Fact: Van was the lone voice on TMZ to question Kanye West when he said slavery was a choice [click here if you missed that].

Agreed. I stopped going in their comment section years ago after they deleted my comment for saying Giselle Buchen f**cked her way through the industry but they allow all those racist comments against blacks.

Van was too real and woke for those brain dead clowns anyway.

TMZ is bought and paid for by the government and the Hollyweird gate keepers. You can't trust the manufactured info they put out. Van is better off.

Hmm...he went up agaisnt the "wrong one" huh? Nevertheless, this guy can certainly hold his own. I invision him being some type of pundit. TMZ is the devil. One door closes, tons of others will open. He should've been gone. He'll do well.

This was probably a Blessing in disguise for Van! He's not afraid to speak his mind, he won't be talked down to and it's TMZ's loss, Van's gain.

Van will be fine! He has his own Podcast and I'm sure there will be plenty of outlets that come after him - and he will probably get a deal to do a show on what really went down behind the scenes there. It was time for him to be out anyway. Harvey is a rabid supporter of that A-hole in the White House and he was the only black person on staff there that had an educated voice. All the other ones went along with whatever everyone else in the room thought was good.

TMZ is no place for a well spoken, forwarding thinking, independent minded, straight Black man. But I'm sure that chick Racquel's job is safe. She embodies everything TMZ wants people to think about Black women and Black people in general.

Tmz is trash. I can't believe black folks go over there. Let alone comment. Them and mediatakeout are the worst.

That site has ALWAYS been garbage!. Charles coming from The Bronx, should be ashamed to be on that travesty. Van stood up as he should!. Check these Assholes every chance you get. These Edomite's want a race war, but don't write a check that you cannot cash!. Stay Blessed and prayered up.

First of what TMZ does nothing but report on whenever one of the Kardashians fart and who Miley Cyrus decided to kiss. Im sick of them. If I wanted a 24/7 read on the same 20 people then TMZ is the place for you, besides that I get my news from different places. And yes their comments section is the worse-its a mix of regular people commenting and brain addled racists talking about about Trump in every other comment whether it relates to him or not.
