Christopher 'Big Black' Boykin Of 'Rob & Big' Dead At 45






UPDATE: Following news of Boykin’s death, an MTV spokesperson released a statement saying, “MTV is deeply saddened to learn the news of Christopher ‘Big Black’ Boykin’s passing. He was a long time and beloved member of the MTV family and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this time.”


EARLIERChristopher “Big Black” Boykin, the reality star who joined friend Rob Dyrdek on MTV’s “Rob & Big” in the 2000s, died Tuesday morning. He was 45.


TMZ reported the news, which HuffPost confirmed with Boykin’s rep. No cause of death has been given at this time. 



Boykin rose to fame in 2006, getting up to ridiculous hijinks with Dyrdek on the pair’s reality show. The two later had a falling out, which Dyrdek opened up about in an interview with Graham Bensinger.


“It was a strange period,” Dyrdek said.


“I had been a pro skateboarder for years,” he added, “so me transitioning to mainstream fame was relatively smooth, right? Where for him it was the idea that, man, he was like working security two years earlier and now he’s on television, right? It was a much different dynamic. But I think we both struggled.”


Dyrdek said he didn’t want to be known as Rob from “Rob & Big,” and Boykin didn’t want to be known as a sidekick, which led to tension and a big blowout.


The two eventually reconciled enough for Boykin to make appearances on “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory.”


Boykin’s friends and fans, including Chanel West Coast from “Fantasy Factory,” sent out messages of love online.


























Boykin is survived by a 9-year-old daughter.

3 Storm Chasers Killed In Car Crash As They Pursued Texas Tornado




Storm chasers pursuing a tornado collided at an intersection in Texas on Tuesday, killing three. 


Two of the storm chasers, Weather Channel contractors Kelley Gene Williamson, 57, and Randall Delane Yarnall, 55, were in a Chevrolet Suburban live-streaming their pursuit of the storm when the feed cut out as they reached a rural intersection outside of Spur. 


Spur is about 60 miles east of Lubbock. 


Police said Williamson ran a stop sign and hit a Jeep driven by 25-year-old Corbin Lee Jaeger, who was also chasing the storm, according to KWCH.


Williamson, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle, KFDM reported. 


Sgt. John Gonzalez of the Texas Department of Public Safety told CBS Dallas that the weather did not play a direct role in the collision. 


“We would encourage anyone driving down these remote roads to slow down and pay attention to traffic signs especially in inclement weather. It can become dangerous for all involved,” Gonzalez told the station.


Jaeger had posted a picture of his Jeep earlier in the day as he waited for the storm:





The Weather Channel released a statement on Williamson and Yarnall, who were featured in a two-part show called “Storm Wranglers” last year:



“This afternoon we learned that three people died in a car accident in Texas, including two contractors for the Weather Channel, Kelley Williamson and Randy Yarnall. Kelley and Randy were beloved members of the weather community. We are saddened by this loss and our deepest sympathies go out to the families and loved ones of all involved.”



The three storm chasers were mourned online by the weather community:  









































”The storm chaser community is a very unique, close-knit group of friends and family who are driven by a common passion for extreme weather,” AccuWeather extreme meteorologist Reed Timmer said. “Their shared passion and experience for chasing tornadoes, and especially for warning people in their path, will be forever missed here in Tornado Alley and beyond.”

Dunkin' Donuts Dumps The Coffee Coolatta, Basically Ruining Everything






Those who found reliable refreshment in the Coffee Coolatta may be in for a long hot summer.


Dunkin’ Donuts announced it is discontinuing the frozen coffee beverage.


The phaseout will be completed by summer while the chain introduces the new Frozen Dunkin’ Coffee, which provides a more “authentic, energizing coffee drinking experience,” a Dunkin’ Donuts official told The Huffington Post via email on Thursday.


The new drink is concocted with “a special extract that contains Dunkin’ Donuts Original Blend coffee, blended with ice and dairy,” said Chris Fuqua, senior vice president of marketing.


Fuqua told a media gathering earlier this week that the reason for the Coffee Coolatta’s retirement is that it “isn’t good enough.”


It wasn’t a dieter’s dream, either. Rated by HuffPost as one of the worst fast-food coffee drinks for your health, a large Coffee Coolatta packs 540 calories (860 with cream) and 102 grams of sugar. 


But the decades-old menu staple has its fans, as Twitter can attest. Yes, there were tears.

Nature Just Obliterated A Famous ‘Game Of Thrones’ Landmark






It served as the spectacular backdrop for Daenerys Targaryen’s wedding to Khal Drogo in the first ever episode of “Game of Thrones.”


But the natural “Azure Window” rock arch that jutted off Gozo Island in the Maltese archipelago is sadly no more. A powerful storm Wednesday caused the arch and its stack to collapse into the sea below, reports the Times of Malta.





“There was a big raging sea beneath the window,” said local resident Roger Chessell, who witnessed the collapse. “Suddenly, the arch collapsed into the sea with a loud whoomph, throwing up a huge spray. By the time the spray had faded, the stack had gone too.”


Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat called the collapse of the limestone rock “heartbreaking.”


He revealed via Twitter that officially commissioned studies had indicated it “would be hard hit by unavoidable natural corrosion.” “That sad day arrived,” Muscat added.










The Island of Gozo’s tourist board also lamented the loss of the rock formation, known locally as it-Tieqa tad-Dwejrawhich it estimated that 80 percent of all tourists to the island had visited.


“The inevitable and the much feared has happened,” it said via a statement on Facebook. “The flagship of the Gozitan touristic sites has sunk in its same birth place from where for thousands of years, it stood high and proud heralding one of the natural beauties our little island is endowed with.”





Dozens of Twitter users also paid tribute to the former formation:
