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:

Charlize Theron & Her Hairpiece Accept Human Rights Honor

Filed under: Gay Gay GayAwardzCharlize TheronHairstyles

charlize theron hairpiece human rights gala

Being a new mother definitely keeps ya busy!

And apparently it kept Charlize Theron from having her hair properly styled for the Human Rights Campaign gala this weekend.

When Charlize waltzed on stage to accept the Ally for Equality award for her dedication to the LGBT community it was pretty obvious that ponytail hanging over her shoulder was fake.

It's not even the same color as her real hair!

Oh well, guess Char's tresses aren't a top priority now that little Jackson's around.

The Kardashians Might Not Be Using Slave Labor After All

kardashian-sweatshop-scandal-might-not-use-slave-labor-after-all.jpg

The executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights is in damage control mode after Star magazine quoted him in their Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal article.

Charles Kernaghan says the gossip rag took his quotes out of context and doesn't have any proof the factories producing K-Dash by Kardashian, the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle shoes are violating child labor laws or human rights.

Since the news broke this morning, Kris Jenner has denied the allegations insisting the factories are "strictly policed".

ShoeDazzle owner Robert Shapiro echoed the momager's statement, adding he and his team have "invested tons of time, energy and money to ensure the factories are operating in good standard".

So…how long until they file a defamation lawsuit???
