A Waffle House worker who held an infant baby in her arms while apparently serving customers has been suspended from her job.

The video footage was uploaded to TikTok by user @Kizzle360 who captioned the video “Ain’t know why she got her baby in here [sic].”

Someone can be heard in the background saying, “Ain’t no f***ing way.”

Viewers were conflicted. Many said they would never bring a baby to work even under the most dire circumstances.

According to TMZ, the Waffle House worker, Tiffany Clark, has a “tragic backstory.”

Tiffany, who goes by @tiffanyclark842 on TikTok, claims she had no choice but to take her 4-month-old niece Octavia to work with her.

Tiffany was working the overnight shift at a South Carolina when she got an urgent call from her mother about an emergency family situation.

Tiffany said Octavia is the daughter of her brother who recently died.

The baby’s grandmother told Tiffany to get the baby because the child’s mother had a mental breakdown and was going to be hospitalized.

Tiffany said the only other option was for the baby to end up in the custody of child services. She told TMZ the video is not nearly as bad as it looks.

Despite appearances, Tiffany claims she was never cooking food with baby Octavia in her arms.

She insists she was simply marking plates for servers, and she says she was only behind the counter with the child for the brief moment that was caught on video.

After the video went viral, Tiffany explained the situation to her boss. She was suspended from her job for a week, but she won’t be fired.

Tiffany says she intends become her niece’s legal guardian while the baby’s mother seeks help for her mental disorder.

‘The View’: Joy Behar Calls Out Dr. Oz For COVID Stance — He’s On ‘The Dark Side’

The ladies of ‘The View’ criticized the TV doctor for comments he made during an interview with Sean Hannity, ahead of his campaign for the Senate.

It’s no secret that the co-hosts of The View are strongly in favor of people taking serious precautions when it comes to COVID-19. The women called out Dr. Oz during a hot topics discussion on Wednesday December 1, after the medical TV personality gave an interview to Fox’s Sean Hannity, where he criticized lockdowns. The women pointed out the Senate hopeful’s past controversial statements about reopening schools amid the pandemic.

In the clip from the Hannity interview, Dr. Oz, who’s running for senator in Pennsylvania, he spoke out against shutdowns amid the pandemic. “Remember the phrase ‘two weeks to flatten the curve?’ That metastasized into this incredible authoritarianism overreaching that did not necessarily make us safer. Remember they closed the parks, they shamed people about beaches. Now they’re threatening the same overreach with the omicron that you were just talking about. I think those choices should be yours—the American people’s,” the 61-year-old TV personality said.

After the clip ended, Joy Behar, 79, seemed shocked. “What happened to him? He’s gone over to the dark side,” she said. Sunny Hostin, 53, brought up Dr. Oz’s past comments about opening schools during the pandemic and mentioned that the mortality rate could be 2 to 3 percent. “Any, you know, any life is a life lost, but to get every child back into a school where they’re being educated and fed and making the most of their lives, with the theoretical risk of the backside — that might be a tradeoff some folks would consider,” Dr. Oz said during an April 2020 interview with Hannity. After the backlash, he apologized and said he “misspoke.” Sunny brought up the comments to show she was against his campaign and COVID stance. “You’re willing to sacrifice the lives of our children? Was he willing to sacrifice the lives of his children and his grandchildren?” she said.

Joy noted that while she was in shock over his stance, she did have a personal relationship with him, but mentioned that she felt like his politics were out of hand. “He’s very personally a doll. This is some political aspiration that he has that must be controlled,” she said, while Whoopi Goldberg, 66, mentioned that regardless of their relationship, she was against his campaign. “Kids going back to school deserve to be safe, and if you as a doctor and physician can’t see that, then you’re not somebody I want to vote for. No matter how much I like you,” she said.

Omicron Challenge: Funniest, Wildest & Pettiest Omarion Variant Tweets/Memes

The pandemic is posed to be over

If there’s one thing Black Twitter is going to do, it’s joke about a serious situation like the emergence of yet another alarming COVID variant that currently has the whole entire world in a frenzy.

First identified in South Africa, the latest COVID update (named after Greek letter Omicron or a Transformers villain) has caused concern among public health officials while fueling hilarious Omarion variant memes across social media.

On Monday, the World Health Organization called Omicron a variant of concern and warned that the global risks were “very high” despite very little being known about the virus.

So far, cases have been identified in 20 countries including Britain, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands.

As of right now, Omicron hasn’t been detected in the United States yet but experts say it’s only a matter of time before the variant pop-locks in the states.

Based on early studies, it’s believed Omicron may only cause mild illness based on limited data from South Africa’s cases among young people.

Naturally, top infectious disease expert Dr. Fauci urged people to get a booster shot that would most likely provide protection against severe disease.

“We’ve said it over and over again and it deserves repeating. If you’re not vaccinated, get vaccinated, get boosted if you are vaccinated, continue to use the mitigation methods, namely masks, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces,” he said.

How are you feeling about the Omarion variant? Will you be getting the booster if you haven’t already? Tell us down below and peep the funniest, wildest, and pettiest Omarion variant tweets/memes on the flip.

“They say in order to keep the Omarion Variant away, you have to do this routine 3 times in the mirror” – no, seriously

Halle Berry, 55, Dances In Sheer Corset Top To Celebrate Her New Movie ‘Bruised’

Halle Berry sizzled in a sexy black top while marking the release of her directorial debut ‘Bruised’.

Halle Berry, 55, has something to celebrate! The Oscar-winning actress shared a fun Instagram on Nov. 30 to mark the release of her new movie Bruised. In the video clip, she looks ultra sexy as she dances around wearing a slinky black corset top and carrying a glass of champagne. Explaining the reason behind her festive mood, Halle captioned the post, “When you find out the night before that your film is #1 in the U.S. and #2 globally and you start dranking to celebrate … this is bound to happen.” 

In Bruised, Halle plays a washed-up mixed martial arts fighter giving her career one last shot. The movie — which came out Nov. 17 — also marks her first time as a director. To prepare for the role, the actress had to balance being behind the camera with an intense physical training regime. Halle put her all into the feature, telling Reuters,I knew that I would spend more time, more energy, more hours working on something than I’d ever worked on in my entire career. It proved to be true. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.”

Halle’s new movie isn’t the only thing she can be happy about. The star has been head-over-heels for her musician boyfriend Van Hunt, 51, who she first teased on her Instagram in August 2020. She talked about the relationship with Women’s Health in mid-November, telling the magazine, “I wish I had met him sooner so I could have loved him longer. I feel happy in my life romantically, as a mother, as an artist. I’m a much better mother in this circumstance than I would have been had I stayed in a romantic relationship that didn’t serve me and didn’t make me feel the way I need to feel as a woman.’

Halle has been married three times in the past, first to baseball player David Justice, 55, then to singer Eric Benet 55, before wedding and divorcing French actor Olivier Martinez, also 55. She shares daughter Nahla, 13, with model ex Gabriel Aubrey, 45, and a son named Maceo, eight, with Olivier.
