Judging by his knowledge on the subject, Tom Hanks seems like an ideal spades or whist partner.
@wkamaubell, criticizing actor Tim Allen, bottom, for his apparent lack of interest during an interview with blogger Xilla Valentine. When Valentine tests Allen and “Toy Story 4” co-star Tom Hanks’ knowledge of spades and bid whist — card games that are popular in black communities — Allen seems to shut down, asking, “Should I get a cup of coffee?” That didn’t sit well with viewers who were reminded of a 2013 interview he did with The Tampa Bay Times, in which Allen said he should be allowed to use the N-word whenever he likes.

“I just didn’t want to be the kid with cancer, so now I’m the kid who plays violin.”
@Stevenator9001, tweeting about 11-year-old violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa’s Tuesday audition on “America’s Got Talent.” After explaining he was bullied for having cancer, Tyler performed a rousing cover of Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).” Judge Simon Cowell hit the golden buzzer, sending Tyler to the live shows.
