Madonna SUED For Supporting Homosexuality In Russia!

Although we had hoped for the best, we had a feeling that something completely shameful like this would happen!

Madonna fearlessly voiced her support for gay rights during her MDNA concert in St. Petersburg (as seen above), Russia, where sadly, laws prohibit homosexuality being promoted to minors, and now, the iconic pop star has been sued by nine activists for almost $10.5 MILLION!

Thai officials have raided the Wildlife Foundation Thailand, an animal sanctuary for abused animals and animals taken out of the illegal pet trade.

The raids have included imprisoning members of the organization and "confiscating" animals on false charges.

It is believed the raid is in response to whistleblowing regarding the killing of elehpants in several national parks and how they were possibly linked to two high ranking officials.

The Wildlife Foundation does:

Twitter To Begin Blocking Content In Certain Countries!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTwitter

twitter-to-begin-blocking-content-in-certain-countries

This is getting very, very scary.

In a shocking move that proves that it is far more interested in corporate relations than it is freedom of expression, Twitter's company officials have announced that they will voluntarily restrict content in specific countries that have limits on what their people are allowed to read!

In a message posted today, they write:

Lars Von Trier Apologizes For Nazi Comments For The 438th Time Again!

Filed under: Film FlickersOops!PerezTVEvents

Last we heard from Melancholia director Lars von Trier, he had dug himself into a PRET-TY deep hole with further Nazi comments.

As a reminder, Lars made some awful Nazi/Hitler comments (above), which enraged folks at Cannes, and got him kicked out of the film festival. He attempted to apologize, but only made things worse for himself.

Now, he's giving the whole apology thing another go, and this time he's referring to his Nazi comments as "unintelligent…and needlessly hurtful."

Okay Lars, this is a step in the right direction! We like what we're hearing so far!

After being condemned for his comments, Lars had the following to say:

"In my opinion, freedom of speech, in all its shapes, is part of basic human rights. However, my comments during the festival's press conference were unintelligent, ambiguous and needlessly hurtful."

"My intended point was that the potential for extreme cruelty, or the opposite, lies within every human being, whatever nationality, ethnicity, rank or religion. If we only explain historical disasters with the cruelty of individuals we destroy the possibility of understanding the human mechanisms, which in turn are necessary in order to avoid any future crimes against humanity."

All right, Lars. As far as apologies are concerned, this is MUCH BETTER than your previous ones.

We're thinking you should quit while you're ahead. You know if you keep talking about this, the hole-digging will begin again.

What do U think about Lars' latest apology? Adequate, or at least adequate enough?

Fox News And Sarah Palin Outraged By Common's White House Invite

Sean Hannity is up in arms over Michelle Obama inviting rapper Common to come to the White House for an evening celebrating poetry on Wednesday.

On Tuesday during his show, the Fox News personality criticized the First Lady's decision because he believes that the White House is setting a bad example by allowing a "controversial" rapper to…come inside? Ha!

He's not alone either!

On Tuesday, Sarah Palin tweeted:

"Oh lovely, White House…"

So WHAT'S the big deal?

Common spit out an anti-Bush verse while performing a poem at a 2007 Def Poetry event.

Oh, the horror! What poet DIDN'T spit out an anti-Bush verse in 2007? LOLz!

We believe it's called, wait, what's that expression? It's on the tip of our tongue. It's so close! It's — oh yeah — FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

If you'd like to see Hannity ATTEMPT to read the poem in question, then proceed to yell over the commentator ATTEMPTING to offer a different point of view (and educated), check out the video above.

Are U upset that Common is appearing at the White House poetry event or is Fox News and their conservative cohorts blowing this WAY out of proportion?
