Ricky Schroder apologizes after viral Costco confrontation

The former “Silver Spoons” actor confronted a Costco worker who wouldn’t allow him to enter the store without a mask.

WASHINGTON — Former “Silver Spoons” and “NYPD Blue” actor Ricky Schroder apologized after posting a video on social media showing a confrontation with a Costco employee over recent mask mandates.
In the video posted Friday, Schroder asked a Costco employee named Jason why he wasn’t allowed inside the store while not wearing a mask.
“Because in the state of California and the county of Los Angeles, and Costco, there has been no change to our mask policy,” Jason said.
“Didn’t you see the news? Nationwide Costco has said you don’t need to wear masks,” Schroder replied.
The incident took place a day after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention eased its mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated people. It recommends fully vaccinated individuals to stop wearing masks outdoors in crowds and in most indoor settings.
However, California and Los Angeles still have mask requirements in place.
“Actually that’s not true,” Jason replies to Schroder’s comment. “So, what is accurate is that Costo always goes above and beyond when following the law, and the mandate in California has not changed.”
Watch the full video below:
Schroder went on an anti-mask rant and urged individuals to give up their memberships to Costco “until they remove this.”
In Schroder’s 7-minute apology video posted on Sunday, he explains why he reacted the way he did during the confrontation.
“First off, to Jason at Costco,” Schroder began. “Jason, nothing personal. I’m not upset with you or anybody in a position like you have… works for a living. I understand you were following their laws and rules.”
He added: “I was trying to make a point to the corporate overlords, and sorry that I had to use you to do it. I’m sorry. If I hurt your feelings, I apologize.”
In November, Ricky Schroder was in the news after donating money to help release the accused Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse. The Illinois teen has been charged with killing two people during an August protest against the police killing of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.

Elvis Presley's confrontation with a bat hiding in Graceland's attic described by cousin

Elvis Presley fans know that Graceland’s upstairs is off-limits to the public, but it is well-known what’s up there from his bedroom and office to the bathroom he died in. However, not much is known about the Memphis mansion’s mysterious attic. In a new video interview, Elvis’ cousin Billy Smith was asked if the top floor of the house was, in fact, haunted.

Speaking on his son Danny’s Memphis Mafia Kid YouTube channel in the video below, Billy started off by joking about ghosts haunting Graceland’s attic.

But when he finished kidding he did admit: “I did stumble down the stairs one time. I’d gone up there and I heard [this] racket and wondered what it was.

“It was a bat. I didn’t know if it was a vampire bat or what it was.

“I couldn’t see it at the time so I ushered on down the stairs rather quickly and I kind of tripped.”

Billy added: “Thank goodness nobody never got stung…I broke and ran!”

Earlier this month, Express.co.uk took part in a virtual live tour of Graceland and asked what’s in the mysterious attic today.

Archivist Angie Marchese replied: ““All of the attic items have been moved to the archives.”

And as for what Elvis had chosen to keep there during his lifetime, she shared that little-known information too.

Angie said: “All of Gladys belongings, his army stuff was up there. Some of Lisa’s baby clothes, old furnishings and drapes.”

So, by the sounds of it, Graceland’s attic was used to store items that Elvis and his family were no longer using but felt they couldn’t throw away.

Sadly The King’s mother Gladys died in 1958 aged only 46-year-old, just as The King was setting off for his brief stint in the army.

After two years serving over in Germany, Elvis returned home to Graceland as Sergeant Presley. Following years kept in the attic and then the archives, his uniform is now on permanent display just across from the mansion at the entertainment and exhibit complex called Elvis Presley’s Memphis.

‘RHOA’ Recap: Marlo Hampton Storms Out After A Heated Confrontation With Kenya & Porsha

Things went WAY left during the April 4 episode of ‘RHOA’, when an argument erupted between Marlo, Kenya and Porsha!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta[1] were still on their girls’ getaway in New Orleans during the April 4 episode, when a dinner with rapper/bounce artist Big Freedia took a nasty turn. It all began when Kandi Burruss[2] called out Marlo Hampton for unnecessarily inserting herself into the drama between Porsha Williams[3] and Kenya Moore[4].

Porsha previously revealed that she’s no longer able to trust Marlo, who recently reconnected with Kenya, who has refused to drop her ongoing inquiry into the alleged sex Porsha had with Bolo, the stripper who performed at Cynthia Bailey‘s bachelorette party.

“Both of y’all — Porsha, I love you to death,” Marlo said, as the ladies ate the dinner they made with Big Freedia. “[Kenya] would never be able to have me cross you in no kind of way. Kenya, I’m moving baby steps with you, but I love where we’re at and it feels good.”

Kenya wasn’t happy with that, though, because she’s adamant that Porsha had sex with the stripper, and according to her, anyone who’s willing to let Porsha go without confirming it isn’t “telling the whole truth.”

“Porsha told me it did not happen and that’s what we’re going with,” Marlo told Kenya, who then said Marlo is making this “messy” by airing their drama out in front of Big Freedia. Marlo was fine with that and she actually suggested that Porsha and Kenya have a one-on-one conversation — privately — to squash their beef once and for all.

However, Porsha wasn’t interested in doing that either. “I no longer have anything else to say,” Porsha told Marlo.

Marlo then said she’s willing to let the whole thing go if both women agree to not name the other while conversing with her. But when both Porsha and Kenya say that they don’t speak about the other while talking to Marlo, Marlo bugged out.

“Both of you have me in an uncomfortable position,” she said. “Both of you motherf***ers talked to me about each when I wasn’t there!”

Porsha didn’t love being called a “motherf***er”, so that also set her off and lead to a bunch of bleeps.

Meanwhile, Marlo didn’t love getting yelled at so she decided to leave the dinner altogether. “I’mma do you, and I’mma do you. Goodnight with y’all fake aes. Goodnight, fake-a b***hes. Goodnight!” Marlo yelled, as she stormed out of the restaurant.

Later, when the ladies arrived back in Atlanta — fortunately, they escaped a wicked hurricane making its way towards New Orleans — Porsha told Cynthia that she’s drawling a line in the sand when it comes to her relationship with Marlo.
