In second place, NBA superstar LeBron James comes in a narrow second on the rich list, earning $121.2 million per year. He managed to cash in on his talk show as well as his last year starring role in Space Jam: A New Legacy film. 

Cristiano Ronaldo rounds up the top three, earning $115 million after moving from Juventus to Manchester United. Ronaldo has 690 million followers across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, allowing him to leverage for higher sponsorship fees from a number of companies.

UK judges rule calling men bald is sexual harassment

UK judges rule calling men bald is sexual harassment

A panel of judges in Sheffield have just ruled that calling a man bald will be deemed sexual harassment. 

Each of the three judges which oversaw the North Yorkshire tribunal themselves also suffered from hair loss. They went on to conclude that using the word bald to describe someone is a form of discrimination. 

One of the judges highlighted the fact that baldness is more prevalent among men than women, and thus such insults make it a form of prejudice. 

According to the Telegraph, the judges suggested that commenting on a man’s baldness at work is the same as remarking the size of a woman’s breasts. 

The judges decided on the ruling during a case brought by electrician Tony Finn, who was fired from his job during May of last year after 24 years employment. Finn took the company in question to court claiming he was the victim of sexual harassment. 

Allegedly, his supervisor had made offensive remarks, almost ending up in violence between the two men. The Supervisor, 30 years younger than Finn, had called him a ‘bald c**t.’

Local dancer hits out at Maltese dancers not chosen for Eurovision

Local dancer and choreographer Luke Brincat took to social media to give his 5c about how Maltese dancers were, yet again, not chosen to perform on the international Eurovision stage. 

Brincat, who is the creator and director of DanceLab, started his post by saying that despite the song choice  not being the best choice for Emma, he had a lot more to say about the dancers. ‘Don’t get me started about those dancers.’

‘I’ve been wanting to post since the release of the first rehearsal footage…I’ve bit my tongue for too long.’

Luke highlighted how year after year, foreign dancers are chosen over local professional dancers to ‘avoid flights and lodging.’ 

‘No Maltese dancer or choreographer could have possibly done the couple of movements the foreign dancers did’ he said sarcastically. ‘Pretty sure that fellow local dancers who sweat their asses off every single day… too some day make it in this industry… agree 100%’. 

What do you make of this?
