David Beckham Presents Malala Yousafzai With The Courage Award At The Pride Of Britain Awards!

david beckham presents bravery award to malala yousafzai at pride of britain awards

What's better than winning an award??

How about having former soccer stud David Beckham hand you the trophy?! That's like having two victories for the price of one!

Last week, the iconic footballer was on hand at the Pride of Britain Awards in London, where he presented Malala Yousafzai with the Teenager of Courage Award, and she was DEFINITELY deserving!!

The 16-year-old Pakistani girl has been a well known advocate for women's education in her region over the past few years, and one day she was shot in both the head and neck by a Taliban gunman in an assassination attempt on her way home from school!

Luckily, Malala survived the attack, and since then she has become an icon around the world for equal opportunity education for girls!

Earlier this year, she was honored by Angelina Jolie at the Women in the World gala in NYC, and she also became the youngest person to EVER receive a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize!

Oh, and did we mention she's also written a book??

At just 16 years of age, it's absolutely amazing to hear what Malala has already been able to accomplish in her life, and we know this wont be the last we hear of her!

Congrats on the big win! You deserve it!!

Pakistani Game Show Prizes Are BABIES!

pakistani game show baby prizes orphans sad

You want controversy? Look no further than Pakistan's newest gameshow, where the prize you win is a real life human baby!

What the what??

Orphaned infants are being given away as PRIZES on this new game show, Aman Ramazan, which is obvi creating a HUGE split between those who are happy that these children are no longer orphans, and those who think these human beings are being treated like objects!

The biggest thing here is that normal adoption is a long process for a good reason — families are vetted thoroughly before they're able to bring a child home, and it seems like this game show just skips a lot of that very important step. Plus, how will these kids feel when they grow up? Like they were just some trophy to be won or lost?

Here's footage from the game show below!

But, that's not all…Here's what an expert with Human Rights Watch said:

This is SO devastating.

33-year-old Fakhra Younus committed suicide on March 17, after undergoing over three dozen surgeries to repair severe damages from being burned in acid.

Back in May 2000, Younus was attacked in her sleep by her abusive ex-husband, who poured acid all over her face and body.

Absolutely horrifying!!!

Hobbit Casting Agent Fired…And For Good Reason!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm Flickers

casting agent fired from the hobbit

This is seriously NOT COOL! We're glad Peter Jackson and his production company did the right thing and immediately fired this person.

A Hobbit casting agent was fired after placing ads in a regional New Zealand newspaper which said that they were seeking extras with "light skin tones."

Not only that, but the casting agent reportedly told potential extra Naz Humphreys, a Pakistani woman, that she couldn't play a Hobbit because of her skin color.

Here's what the casting agent told people at an audition:

“We are looking for light-skinned people. I’m not trying to be … whatever. It’s just the brief. You’ve got to look like a Hobbit.”

Here's what a spokesman for Peter Jackson's production company had to say about the casting agent's claim that they are only looking for light-skinned people:

“No such instructions were given. The crew member in question took it upon themselves to do that and it’s not something we instructed or condoned. It’s something we take very seriously.”

Poor Hobbit crew! It's been such a long, tough road and now they had to deal with this too!

We hope this is the last of the drama for them!

Do U think the casting agent deserved to be fired?
