As a triple amputee, Marine Cpl. Juan Dominguez doesn't just deserve this smart home, he needs it.

You might recognize this story — we've talked about it before. With the help of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and its partner, the Gary Sinise Foundation, the house is being completely donated.

Heather Morris Sports A Controversial Bruised Eye For New Photoshoot

Filed under: Photos!Glee

Looking at the above pic definitely makes us a bit uncomfortable.

Glee's Heather Morris posed for a series of photos taken by photographer Tyler Shields, which included a photo called "Even Barbie Bruises."

As soon as the photo was released a few days ago, many critics complained that it glamorized violence towards women.

After seeing the photo, critic Piper Weiss called for a protest against the fashion industry:

"Isn't turning a young actress into a doll enough of a talker without also beating her up? At this point, it's not even worth a debate to add more fuel to the fire. What needs to happen is an internal snub from the fashion industry to assert that that kind of attention-baiting is unacceptable. It's become an industry-standard publicity measure, and one that wouldn't fly in any other field. Fashion thrives on controversy, but abuse against women isn't even controversial, it's just off limits."

Shields has since apologized for the photo, but still defends the concept. He plans on giving 30% of the proceeds for two of the less-controversial photos, which will be donated to a homeless charity. Meanwhile 100% of the proceeds for three limited edition lithographs of the close-up, signed by Shields, will go to a domestic violence organization.

Bidding will start at $100,000.

We applaud his efforts to make amends.
