Much like big sister, Miley Cyrus, Noah Cyrus is raising eyebrows in the world, but not for the same reason!

PETA Still Trying To Change Dumbo's Ending! Now They're Asking Recently Announced Director Tim Burton!

We feel like PETA is like a little kid trying to figure out which parent to ask for more ice cream. Who is more likely to satiate their sweet tooth… but for a pretty decent reason.

When PETA heard that Disney was remaking Dumbo, they asked that the studio change the film's ending.

The original Dumbo ends with the eponymous elephant becoming a hit circus act and everything ends happily!

Though, now we all know the circus isn't the best place for elephants. Heck, even Ringling Bros. has promised to get rid of their elephant acts by 2018!!

So, now that the Dumbo remake has director Tim Burton on board, PETA is asking him what they already asked Disney. PETA's Senior VP Lisa Lange wrote a letter to the director, that said, in part:

We have a feeling Sharon Osbourne's supposed opinion about the way Kim Kardashian West treats North West isn't going to sit too well with the reality star.

Is the 34-year-old going to fight back and stand up for her parenting skills?!

Probably not, considering how Kimmy kept silent when Amber Rose bashed her family and Kanye West over social media recently, but we digress…

Your Reaction?

This Super Bowl won't be having this commercial!

GoDaddy has pulled an ad from the big game after a number of critics complained about the fact that the commercial seems to be OK with people who have puppy mills and support other "inhumane breeding" practices.

The short commercial featured a lost puppy finding its way home only to discover its owner sold the pup on a GoDaddy website.

And the pup is then driven away by none other than Danica Patrick!

But the backlash must've been pretty huge because the commercial has already been
