2. Kris Aquino calls out Mocha Uson for “crossing a line.

In an attempt to justify the recent actions of President Rodrigo Duterte, Mocha Uson posted a video of two women kissing Benigno Aquino. Jr. right before his assassination. Kris Aquino went on Facebook Live to tell off Uson for disrespecting her parents and then challenged Uson to meet her “any time and anywhere.”

3. The Warriors and Cavaliers face-off again for the NBA Finals.

The Warriors are up by two games and Stephen Curry set a new record by shooting nine three-pointers on June 4. Despite the Cavaliers having the home court advantage for games 3 and 4, the odds are still stacked against them until the team gets it together. Game 3 will be held tomorrow, June 7.
