WE have some emotionally charged stories for you this week, starting with Oscar Pistorius being found guilty of culpable homicide after shooting and killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. We give you a brief timeline of Oscar's emotions since the start of the trial on pages 48 and 49. The case has caused a mixed response; we all became emotional listening to Judge Thokozile Masipa reading out her verdict! Some of us sat in utter disbelief when she said Oscar was not guilty of premeditated murder! WE feel for Reeva’s family, BUT it’s not over yet…. We're on tenterhooks until October 13, to see the outcome of his sentencing!

Feisty and outrageous comic legend, Joan Rivers passed away at the age of 81 a few weeks ago, and left her only child Melissa Rivers a massive R1.6-billion fortune. Turn to page 85 to see the breakdown of her multi-million dollar will. Wow! R1.6-billion! I didn’t realise Joan was worth that much!

On a fun note! Coco of Ice Loves Coco fame chats to people on love, marriage….and more on pages 10 to 12 as we feature exclusive pictures of Coco and Ice T on holiday. If you spot Coco and Ice T out and about at the Sexpo this year, send us the pictures to publish.

Handler slams Instagram

Handler slams Instagram
Chelsea Handler
Chelsea Handler takes on executives at the photo-sharing app company after a topless photo of the comedienne was removed.

Chelsea Handler has blasted Instagram as sexist.

Moderators on Thursday removed a topless photo of the comedienne posing alongside a similar image of Vladimir Putin, both riding a horse.

But the former Chelsea Lately host was irate when the post was removed, and called out executives at the firm for holding a dated attitude toward women’s equality.

“If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it's ok, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?” she commented in another post Thursday night.

The accompanying image showed the message Chelsea received when her original image was deleted.

“@chelseahandler We removed your post because it doesn’t follow our Community Guidelines. Please read our Community Guidelines to learn what kinds of posts are allowed and how you can help keep Instagram safe,” it reads.

Chelsea’s defiant response had earned tens of thousands of likes within minutes, with many offering their support.

“GO CHELSEA!!! #femisim #ladiesrule #equalrights,” one follower wrote.

“Can't believe they took it down again #wtf #wtfinstagram #theyrejustboobseverybodyhasthem,” another added.

Chelsea also vented on Twitter about the guidelines that resulted in the photo removal.

“Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to show I have a better body than Putin,” she tweeted, adding that it had happened before.

“If instagram takes this down again, you’re saying Vladimir Putin Has more 1st amendment rights than me. Talk to your bosses.”

A spokesperson for the photo-sharing app had not commented on the controversy at press time. © Cover Media
