Topless Protestors Storm Notre Dame In Celebration Of The Pope's Resignation!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayEtc.Politik

WARNING: NUDITY!

In France, eight Femen activists undressed and went topless in support of Pope Benedict XVI's resignation (above) — jumping restricted areas and ringing iconic bells.

The Pope wasn't the only reason they did this, though, as they claim it was also in support of gay marriage, but then security showed up and escorted the women out of the cathedral. Womp.

Their bodies were painted with slogans such as 'Pope no more' and 'Bye bye Benoit.' They described themselves as "provocateurs," which must be French for "topless bell-ringers!" LOLz!

We're glad nobody was hurt, and we can definitely see the reason behind wanting to stand up for same-sex marriage, but we also wonder why it's so volatile when it's supposed to be in celebration of the Pope stepping down! Doesn't seem like a celebration to us!

We bet tourists were shocked! They got waaaaaay more than they thought they would during their visit! Ha!

PETA Offers To Pay Legal Fees For Flour Bomber!

Filed under: Kim KardashianPETAFur

Even though PETA is denying any involvement in the flour-bombing of Kim Kardashian they have offered to pay the legal fees of the assailant.

A PETA spokesperson said:

"We don't believe Kim would be so shortsighted as to go after this woman, but if she does, we'll definitely look at how to maximize exposure to the cruel fur industry, and that could mean defending the activist if she wishes."

They think that Kimmy K should donate all her furs to the homeless.

Kim seems to be ignoring PETA when it comes to fur and is focusing on sending a message to any future flour-bombers.

On deciding whether or not to press charges, she said:

"I am just going to think about it, because I don't want someone to think they can really get away with that. So we are going to handle that."

We think we actually side with Kim on this one, PETA shouldn't support an attacker and bully.
