Filed under: Film FlickersSad SadComic Books

New Batman comic release delayed

In another respectable decision from the folks behind the Dark Knight, DC Entertainment has decided to postpone the release of Batman Incorporated #3 in wake of the shootings in Aurora, Colorado.

In an email sent to comic book retailers carrying the issue, the company instructed proprietors to withhold it until August 22nd instead of placing it on the shelves tomorrow as originally scheduled.

Apparently, DC fears that the content could be considered "insensitive" and wrote:

What Do U Think?

Filed under: R.I.P.PollsWhitney HoustonSad SadPhotos!

Earlier today, we reported that the National Enquirer has plastered alleged pictures of Whitney Houston's open casket across the nation by using it as their cover. We think it's a tasteless, insensitive, morbid thing to do … but we want to know what U think!

Do U think the National Enquirer should be banned from newsstands this week?

ESPN Removes Hank Williams, Jr. From Monday Night Football Broadcast After Comparing Obama To Hitler

If you're on television, we think it's a good idea to avoid talking about Hitler. ESPECIALLY if you're comparing the most evil man in history to the current President of the United States!

Hank Williams, Jr., the country singer who has opened every Monday Night Football game since 1989 with his theme song Are You Ready For Some Football?, was removed from ESPN's broadcast last night after controversial remarks on FOX News.

He told the hosts of FOX & Friends that a golf game between Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner was "one of the biggest political mistakes ever."

When questioned, he explained, "That would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu."

The FOX news anchors didn't quite get the analogy and neither did ESPN execs.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz announced on Monday afternoon:

“While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast."

Sources say that ESPN is still evaluating whether they intend to use the song in the future. In a statement, Williams didn't exactly offer up an apology, but a little more of an explanation for his remarks, saying:

"Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme - but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me — how ludicrous that pairing was. They're polar opposites and it made no sense. They don't see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President."

Well, we bet a lot of people will be expressing how "stupid" his "extreme analogy" was to them.

Another "misunderstood" statement was when Mr. Williams, Jr. referred to Obama and Vice President Joe Biden as "The Three Stooges."

Since we can do basic math we were able to infer that this guy actually has no idea what he is talking about!

Ugh! Can someone tell us WHY was this guy invited to offer up political commentary in the first place?

Check out the video above for yourself and let us know if U think ESPN should continue to air his song before future games!
