We weren't even there and we were cheering, too!
And it sure seems like no one was complaining of the choice of Ben for Batman then!

Since one of his best friends and bandmates, John Lennon, met his untimely end thanks to gun violence, it's no surprise that Ringo Starr is such a passionate advocate of anti-gun violence.
In honor of the Non-Violence Project Foundation, the former Beatles drummer unveiled a knotted gun statue he designed on the 31st anniversary of Lennon's death.
He asked for "peace and love" while advocating stricter weapons laws in London, saying:
“If you are caught with a gun it should be a higher sentence. Guns are just becoming more and more. They’re like the death of choice. So we hope that young people will stop. I can’t stand up and dictate to the world: ‘it’s over — no more guns.’ I can just do what I do, and there’s another side to the story which is peace and love.”
Speaking about the tragic day Lennon lost his life, Ringo said:
“They called and said, ‘John’s been killed. He’s been shot and he’s dead'…It was a bad day. But it was a bad day because someone took one of these and shot John.”
Ugh! Such a shame that incidents like that ever happened and continue to happen, so we totally support Ringo's efforts!
