dennis rodman receives open letter from north korean prisoner

Just last week, Dennis Rodman made his third trip to North Korea to help train their men's basketball team and attempt to set up a match for Kim Jong-Un's birthday.

The former basketballer has claimed that these trips are completely harmless, but it seems clear that he doesn't fully understand the seriousness of the situation overseas. Well someone who has seen the horrors firsthand is finally trying to give Dennis the wake-up call he so desperately needs!

Shin Dong-hyuk is a human-rights activist who was born in a North Korean labor camp and is the only know person to escape, and he's written an open letter to the big man in hopes of opening his eyes to reality in his home country.

In the chilling letter, he writes:

Angelina Jolie Honors Young Pakistani Activist Who Was SHOT In The Head Because She Wanted To LEARN!

angelina jolie women of the world gala 2013

All around awesome human being Angelina Jolie added another notch to her humanitarian belt Thursday while at the Women in the World gala in NYC (above)!

Brad Pitt's future (current?!) wife delivered an inspiring, yet heartbreaking speech honoring Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani activist who was shot in the head by the Taliban simply because she wanted equal opportunity education for girls.

Angie has also donated $200,000 to an educational fund set up in Malala's name that will go towards funding various educational projects specifically for females.

It's a sad fact of the world that human beings are still oppressed because of various religious or cultural beliefs. We only hope that these blatant violations of human rights will be addressed and eradicated (somewhat, at least) in our lifetime!

Ch-ch-check out some more snaps of Angelina at the Women in the World gala (below) and then you MUST watch her tear-inducing telling of Malala's story …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Morgan Freeman's Deep Voice Swears It's OK To Marry Gay!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayPolitikMorgan Freeman

And for those unconvinced all human beings are entitled to the same fundamental rights, here's a message from God Himself…

Or, at least, the lovable dude who played God in the Almighty flicks!

Ch-ch-check out March of the Penguins narrator Morgan Freeman chronicling a different journey altogether (above)!

He asks Americans to march together to ensure all persons enjoy the freedom to marry — including those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and/or transgendered!

The message is simple, and clear: To deny those in love the right to marry is unjust and unwarranted.

We appreciate Morgan asking Americans to stand together for a good and necessary cause.

Hopefully recent election results signify true equality is finally on its way!!

Rihanna Escapes Chris Brown Dramz In Azerbaijan

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteLove LineChris Brown

The interwebs are buzzin' with news about Rihanna and Chris Brown's controversial decision to get back together.

Luckily for RiRi, she had a concert booked in a country far, far away so she gets to escape the madness for the next few days.

She arrived in Azerbaijan — a small country right above Iran — on Friday to prepare for a Saturday concert. She was spotted entering her 5-star hotel in an outfit that PETA probably wouldn't be too fond of.

While her trip should help keep her mind off of any criticism she's receiving for shacking up with Breezy again, it's creating more criticism from human rights organizations.

Mel Gibson's Maccabees Film Under Fire!

Well, Giblets!

If Joe Eszterhas couldn't write the script for The Maccabees, maybe he didn't want anyone else to have it either!

Because that disturbing nine-page letter he wrote about Mel Gibson was definitely a catalyst for Jewish groups to protest its development!

In a statement by El Lay's Simon Wiesenthal Center, the human rights organization calls for Warner Bros to end development immediately:
