Let's cut to the point: Tyson Foods (NYSE: TSN) is a sinking ship that should be avoided. The latest chapter in Tyson's series of unfortunate events involves the company being at the barrel-end of a federal wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of a recently deceased meatpacking worker who died from complications caused by COVID-19. This legal complaint filed against Tyson doesn't come as a shock.

President Trump took to his favorite social media platform to attack social media platforms on Wednesday morning, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certainly didn't do anything to help his boss' case.Shortly after Trump claimed on Twitter he would "strongly regulate" or "close down" social media platforms that are allegedly silencing "conservative voices," Pompeo sent out a tweet saying the U.S. "will not tolerate" government-imposed censorship or shutdowns.Pompeo's tweet isn't in response to Trump, exactly — it references the Freedom Online Coalition, a partnership of 31 governments seeking to improve Internet freedom. The group has been vocal about combating any attempts to limit freedom of expression or increase Internet surveillance as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.Trump's social media threats came after Twitter labeled two of his tweets as misleading on Tuesday, the first time that distinction was given to the president on the platform.Seeing as Pompeo specifically boosted the FOC's statement and has been vocal about combating COVID-19 disinformation, it's unclear if his tweet was a targeted dig at Trump's situation or just a case of bad-timing. Maybe these two should talk pic.twitter.com/it2Yu9eIIG — Ryan Lizza (@RyanLizza) May 27, 2020After all, Trump isn't exactly known for being on the same page as his employees.More stories from theweek.com Trump retweets video declaring 'the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat' Amy Klobuchar declined to prosecute officer at center of George Floyd's death after previous conduct complaints John Wick is only called John Wick because Keanu Reeves kept forgetting the actual title

Who knows if it will ever happen, but former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has proposed a 176-pound catchweight bout with former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. McGregor accepted.Silva had surgery in early May, so it isn't likely that he'd be returning to the Octagon any time soon, but the 45-year-old has said that he intends to fight out the remained of his UFC contract.He's teased a fight with McGregor before, but it isn't the kind of challenge that Silva would throw out without wanting to actually accept. McGregor is similar in that he always wants to fight the biggest names. "I have immense admiration for the great athlete that Conor is and I believe that a super fight would go down in the history of the sport, neither of us need to prove anything to anyone," Silva wrote on Instagram. "I believe that fans of the UFC and of this sport would like to watch this great martial arts spectacle, it would be fantastic to test my martial arts skills against him!!"https://www.instagram.com/p/CAtp1NPAVjj/McGregor wasted little time in responding. "I accept," the Irishman wrote on Twitter, captioning a photo of him and Silva."I'm afraid of no one. I'll go up and fight at any weight."Silva has previously fought Nick Diaz and tried for a long time to get a bout with Georges St-Pierre, though the fight with GSP never materialized. Perhaps a fight with McGregor will suffice?* * *TRENDING Video: Henry Cejudo, Rashad Evans, and Vitor Belfort join Mike Tyson in AEW skirmish* * *https://twitter.com/TheNotoriousMMA/status/1265995682390904834?s=20https://twitter.com/SeanSheehanBA/status/1266015209887580163?s=20
