just can't help but stir up controversy lately! Disney
The latest comes from teen sitcom
Jessie. The newest episode pokes fun at a little boy with a restricted diet, and includes a scene where a nanny throws pancakes at the gluten-free child.
Well fans who suffer from celiac disease, a disorder that causes their bodies to react painfully to gluten, were outraged. And they made their outrage heard.
The Disney channel released a statement on its
Facebook page, saying:
When we heard
was doing some shopping in a children's store, our first thought was that she and hubby Courtney Stodden Doug Hutchison were thinking about kids!
But as usual, Courtney just wants
us to think about kids.
The sexed up, sexy, really-wants-you-to-think-she's-sexy sexpot stepped into a kids' apparel and toy store, and did her thing.
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see Courtney
defile play with a rocking horse, a lollipop, and even a couple muppets! Sesame Street
Hey, wait! That's not her husband with her! But she's totes holding hands with this guy!
Oh, we get it. She has to hold an adult's hand to cross the street! LOLz!

That's what we'd say to the creator of this neat ad if we ever met them.
A new Spanish anti-abuse ad shows adults one message, and kids another!
For adults - the picture is of a kid and says "sometimes, child abuse is only visible to the child suffering it."
For kids - the picture changes to the same kid but with a bruised face and reads "if somebody hurts you, phone us and we’ll help you", and provides a phone number.
We're super curious if an ad like this can help abused kids because that would obviously be incredible.
Check out the video (above) and decide for yourself whether you think this ad is brilliant or overrated!
Would you like a side of amazing with your meal?
Public School 244 in Flushing, NY has become the first school in the entire nation to implement an all vegetarian cafeteria, and our only question is what took so long?!?!
The chefs at the school have changed the menu from mystery meat and rubber tasting hot dogs to black beans, tofu and falafel.
So far the kids have been enjoying the heck out of it!
Here's what a school spokesperson said:
is full of surprises! Robert Downey Jr.
First he shocks a Moscow fan
convention by showing up unannounced! Now he's doing it closer to home- NYC!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Iron Man himself applaud the heroic kids!
The appearance was especially meaningful for RDJ, who grew up in NYC. He said:

Clarissa Explains It All star had to explain some classic games to her sons Mason and Brady this weekend.

The fam played Rock'em Sock'em Robots, Uno, and several other classic kids' games that don't require an XBox.

Mattel is hoping that seeing celeb fams like Melissa's will remind parents how much fun they had at family game nights when they were young.
It's working for us! Hand us the robot controls already! Dibs on red! (It's closer to pink, obvi!)

director Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone Chris Columbus decided to write a children's book, there was a pretty obvious person to talk to!
He sought the advice of
Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to find out how J.K.- and British fans of
The Goonies- helped to make House Of Secrets what it is!
So what did the super successful author have to say about the finished product? She wrote:
"A breakneck, jam-packed roller coaster of an adventure about the secret power of books, HOUSE OF SECRETS comes complete with three resourceful sibling heroes, a seriously creepy villainess, and barrel loads of fantasy and fear."
Nice! Though she did finish the quote with a
JK, so we're really not sure if she liked it or not! LOLz!
