Chia Obama Head Offends

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueBarack Obama

Chicago and Tampa-areas Walgreens have pulled the limited edition Chia Obama head from their shelves after finding the item "objectionable."

Chia Pets founder, Joseph Pedott, has no plans to hault production of the green-haired prez by any means, though!

"Since when is an Afro racist?" questioned Pedott. "Owners can trim Chia Obama's 'hair' to any length they want," the Chia mogul matter-of-factly explained.

Pedott is currently in negotiations with New York based drugstores to send shipments of the controversial Chia Heads to the Empire State ASAP! "As quickly as they can take them, we will send them," he reveals.

The Obama Chia comes in two editions: "Happy" and "Determined," with the campaign slogan "Yes We Can," and the words "liberty," "opportunity," "prosperity" and "hope" adorned on the front, both available for the low low price of $19.99 on Chia's website!

    saying this product is racist is the most asinine statement i have heard today



  16. 16

    the claims that any product that depicts barack obama is racist is getting a little bit ridiculous. George Bush's fugly face was on everything for a while, and no one had any objection to that, because people understood that he was the president. But when its barack obama and he is black on a product, its suddenly some big racial issue. good god, accept that people like to create products that depict the president and settle the fuck down.

  33. 33

    You stupid fuck Mario, learn how to spell………………………….
    EAT SHIT and DIE!!!!!
    This is probably the only thing Obama related that I would even consider spending my money on… I'm running to the phone right now!!!!!



  34. 34

    I actually do find that offensive. It's capitalizing on something that is a predominately black trait. And I'm white.



  35. 35

    Hhhhmmm… it's hard to call this one. The question one has to ask is would this concept have been developed for a non Black person/president. My answer is, probably not. Because of that I can see how someone finds this offensive. Personally, I'm not bothered. There are greater problems in the world that will consume my thoughts e.g. educational inequities, hunger, homelessness, etc.

    36

    jew fro! lolz, but i seriously don't find this offensive at all! Obama had a fro back in the day, so whats the beef?



  37. 37

    OMFG!!!!!!!!!!

    this is so funny in alot of ways, but kinda racist……..

    so not kewl



  38. 38

    What a stupid thing. It doesn't even look like Obama.



  39. 39

    Re: MarleyRai – 37 I have a W that is open and empty in the brain cavity and a potato that is Dan Quayle.
    My Reagan is a horses ass and I also have a vintage Dick Cheney that is a fist coming out of a pile of shit! BBD would be jealous!
    Oh, that reminds me, I have a rare Harry Whittington all full of holes!!! It's the best!



  40. 40

    Re: MarleyRai – 37 I forgot to mention the W is a pain in the ass. There is no place to put the seed (because the left the head empty) and nothing will grow on it. It's just useless!
    Sucks!



  41. 41

    Re: marlow – 40 No it doesn't at all!
    .
    OBAMA IS HOT!



  42. 42

    Do you know obama has a sugarbaby ?? yes . it is !! he really has one! if you do not believe me, ok , you can go to w w w . sugar baby meet . ccccom to see the truth !! actually, many famous person have sugarbabies !



  43. 43

    i just dont see how this would offend anyone.
    that's stupid



  44. 44

    Funny, no one complained about being racist when they made the Mr. T chia head.



  45. 45

    Not racist, just silly



  46. 46

    Hail to the Cha-cha-cha-chief!



  47. 47

    Well we're all racist aren't we. If we eat the black M&M's first, we're racist, if we eat them last we're racist, if we eat the as we go along we're not embracing their unique difference AND WE"RE RACIST! So why should a fucking dolls head be any different?



  48. 48

    Re: SWEETPIECE !! – You're stupid… you dint even read my comment. That or you did poorly in comprehension during your school years. Go kick rocks or go kick one of those items you listed, stupid!



  49. 49

    Poor Obama, he has become a joke, now a GREEN joke…..By the way, I have a question for all you liberals….You used to trash Bush because he lwas friends with the King of Saudi, remember that? Remember Michael Moore movie?..Sucking to the arabas for oil and all the shit you used to said? What is your opinion now that YOUR (not mine) President Obama bow like a fucking salve to the Saudi's…

    No comment, right? I thought so.



  50. 50

    Re: MarleyRai – Dear, I was enhancing you deep felt comment. You don't need to take offense!
    .
    But if it makes you feel better or smarter, then, go ahead!
    .
    Sleep tight!



  51. 51

    Re: emkay1331 – 47 Now, that is the best comment yet!



  52. 52

    Re: COCACOLA – 51 Yes, I believe Obama will be a "salve" to sooth the infected wound of our relations with the middle east.
    Quite right.



  53. 53

    GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK, Obama shit is everywhere! How about some Obama toilet paper, Obama video games and cereal?
    I don't think the damn afro meant anything seeing as it's a chia, they are supposed to grow fungus or whatever that is on top of it ;)
    Now, if it grew dollar bills and he came into your house and took the money and gave it to big companies and welfare folks that would be more realistic :)



  54. 54

    whats offensive about this? i honestly don't understand.



  55. 55

    Funnier than Hell!



  56. 56

    If your head wasn't so far up your own butt then you would have reported this days ago. Why is it that this site has went majorly downhill from being a celebrity blog site to it all of a sudden being Perez/GaGa/News/Celebrity site. This site shouldn't be about any of those except celebrity and not just GaGa!



  57. 57

    Re: ladybugz – I thought the same thing!



  58. 58

    ha ha… I love it.. Why would they pull it? I would totally buy it. And ya.. since when was a 'fro racist? A fro is a fro for christ sake.



  59. 59

    I love it - I want one!!!

  60. cgm81 says – reply to this


    60

    Lame.



  61. 61

    I'd love to have one. Then, I can water it everyday when I wake up and take a piss!!!!!!



  62. 62

    The only thing offending about this is that it doesn't even look like him…perhaps they could have had a better artist make the mould.



  63. 63

    I think it's hilarious thier defending argument is "owners can trim it to any length they want". Like optional length makes it more appropriate. Awesome. I want one.



  64. 64

    Chia Pets have been around forever. Big deal. Not racist or objectionable at all. The worst part - it looks nothing like Obama.

  65. m.j says – reply to this


    65

    Its not the fact that it has an afro. Its the fact that its ugly as **** and barley looks like the man!



  66. 66

    nobody said SHIT when scooby doo w a fro came out!!!! too many ppl now a days wasting their breath on little ish.



  67. 67

    cha cha cha chia



  68. 68

    hilarious! if this was a chia for prez Bush, no one would say it is offensive…why is it different for Obama? What—you can be disrespectful to a republican but not to a democrat? Please.



  69. 69

    IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE DUMBAMA AT ALL… :(



  70. 70

    I thought it was kind of cute and kitchy.



  71. 71

    Better yet - have you all seen the Obama action figure? There is a hilarious pictorial of it online.



  72. 72

    Good Grief, have people got nothing else to be concern about than a Chia head?

  73. Laxer says – reply to this


    73

    I love American enterprise.



  74. 74

  75. 75

    GET SPELL CHECK YOU STUPID FUCK!



  76. 76

    There's no U in HALT. Another great example of American education



  77. 77

    Rofl he comes in 'happy' or 'determined'.



  78. 78

    lmao, they make chia everything these days, what's the big deal!? at first i was more worried about the people who would actually buy one….but now i'm thinking i wish i had picked one up pre-controversy, it would have been a good conversation piece.



  79. 79

    is it ther fault that obama has hair like that??? HOW THE FUCK IS IT RACIST TO ACCURATELY REPRESENT SOMEONE'S APPEARANCE??
    bahaha some people are pathetically dumb . . .



  80. 80

    Next thing you know the leftards will have this declared " a hate crime".



  81. 81

    nothing racist about this?? so they have to give the doll a SILKY hair and LIE about the real physical character? that would be more racist to some! keep it bold to make all happy!!



  82. 82

    HAHAHAHA
