They really don't like those Brad Pitt commercials, eh?

The European Union is looking to ban the iconic Chanel N°5 fragrance as well as Dior's Miss Dior and Angel by Thierry Mugler because they contain allergens.

The EU's Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety claims the scents are putting citizens at risk by including some of the 100 allergens that are regularly mixed into fragrances.

Really? Chanel N°5's been around for 90 years and they're just now becoming concerned!?

In fact, the committee wants to ban

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikSad Sad

afghan woman forced to marry rapist

And we have officially reached a whole new level of disgusting in this world.

Yesterday, Afghan President Hamid Karzai pardoned a 19-year-old woman who had been serving a 12-year prison sentence for having sex out of wedlock…even though she was raped BY A RELATIVE!

In an incredibly nauseating turn, the woman agreed to marry the rapist in an effort to get out of prison. Poor thing!

While in prison, the woman gave birth to the rapist's child, and she has been raising her behind bars.

Here's what European Union's Ambassador/Special Representative to Afghanistan Vygaudas Usackas had to say about it:

European Union Considers Banning Shark Finning

shark-finning-ban-in-eu.jpg

Shark finning, the cruel process of removing the fins off sharks then throwing them back into the water, has recently been banned in places like California and Toronto.

Many celebs have back this decision, including, Leonardo DiCaprio, Edward Norton, January Jones and Richard Branson.

What's great is the European Union may be hopping on the ban bandwagon and ban shark finning themselves.

The ban would prohibit all boats in EU waters as well as any EU-registered boats from finning sharks.

A rep from the EU Fisheries office said:

"We want to end the horrendous practice of shark finning and protect sharks much better.

When these proposals come before MEPs, I have no doubt that a few countries will seek to water them down. However, we will push for a rigorous ban. We need a ban on finning that enables fishermen to catch sharks in a way that puts conservation and humane treatment before making a quick buck."

Hopefully they join the rest of us in saving sharks and putting a stop to this cruel practice.
