Carmela Wallace, mother of late rapper Juice WRLD, opened up about her late son’s “struggles with addiction, anxiety, and depression” to mark World Mental Health Day 2020.

In the letter, Wallace writes of the “Lucid Dreams” star, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins: “I think he felt comfortable being honest with me because I never judged him.

“As a parent, I believed early on and supported Jarad having access to counseling,” she admitted. “I encouraged him to always share his feelings.”

Florida’s online voter registration system appeared to encounter problems Monday evening, with only hours to go before the registration deadline for the 2020 general election.

Some Floridians attempting to access RegistertovoteFlorida.gov found slow responses or error messages.

Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee, who oversees the elections website, tweeted just before 6 p.m. that some users had “experienced delays while trying to register” due to high volume on the site. In the tweet, Lee said the state had increased capacity and that the problem had only occurred for about 15 minutes.

However, a Times reporter could not access the site on their mobile phone after Laurel’s tweet was sent out or an hour later.

A spokesman for the Florida Department of State did not immediately respond to a voicemail and email sent just after 6 p.m.

A Senate panel voted Thursday to subpoena the top executives of Facebook, Google and Twitter to answer questions on disinformation, online scams and a range of social ills.

The Commerce Committee agreed unanimously to call Jack Dorsey of Twitter, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Sundar Pichai of Google parent Alphabet.

The move comes with Big Tech platforms facing heightened scrutiny on monopoly concerns, and also for failing to stem hateful and nefarious content.

“After extending an invitation to these executives, I regret that they have again declined to participate and answer questions on the record about issues that are so visible and urgent to the American people,” said Republican Senator Roger Wicker, who chairs the panel.

“We have questioned how they are protecting and securing the data of millions of Americans, we’ve explored how they’re combating disinformation fraud and other online scams, we’ve examined whether they are providing a safe
