Chris Brown Is Not Welcome In Guyana!

Filed under: RihannaChris Brown


Chris Brown may have settled his club issues, but he’s got some others that aren't as easy to solve.

The Don’t Judge Me singer seems to have been judged by the women of Guyana and found wanting. He was supposed to perform on December 26th, but the gig has been cancelled after protests by women’s rights groups and lawmakers.

Even though Rihanna has clearly forgiven him for beating her, Breezy is still unwelcome in Guyana, so he backed out of the performance.

He’s gained back a lot of his public appeal, but it will probably be awhile before everyone feels good about him.

At least the back-on-again couple can spend more time together.

Peaceful Animal Rights Protests On The Rise In Britain

Filed under: AnglophiliaScience!Animal Rights


Even though only 3% of the population in Britain is vegetarian, they sure are animal lovers.

Over the past 6 years, illegal attacks (some bordering on terrorism) have declined significantly to almost none at all, as peaceful protesting has been on the rise.

They might have realized the extremists were taking things a bit too far after a 2004 grave-robbing.


Even though Britain banned testing cosmetics on animals there were still about 3.7 million animal tests performed in 2010.

Regardless of how peaceful the protests are, police are still advising research facilities to up their security, just in case the extremists decide to pop up again.

What seems stupid to us, is that scientists dislike using animals just as much as we do; animal testing is expensive and the results aren't always reliable. The problem is there are no reliable alternatives.

Maybe scientists should spend their time creating alternative testing methods instead of torturing animals.

Animal Rights Group Protests Against Dog And Cat Meat In South Korea

Filed under: Animal RightsDogCatAnimal Cruelty


Animal rights activists protested against the consumption of dog and cat meat in front of the Korean consulate in San Francisco Tuesday morning.

Even though it's illegal to eat dogs and cats in South Korea, the government has NOT been strict enough in enforcing the laws, allowing the antiquated practice to continue in the country. In Defense of Animals Campaign Manager Robin Dorman says "the law is deliberately obscure."

Dog meat is used in a summer stew, which is why protestors feel the need to get the word out immediately. The sad part is that, according to Dorman, "according to South Korean activists, that the more a dog is tortured, the better the taste."

Ugh. That's terrible.

Thankfully there has been some progress, however.

A major annual festival at the infamous outdoor market near Seoul called the Moran Market was canceled this year due to pressure, both domestically and internationally, because it's the place where a majority of Korea's dog meat is sold.

We can't even imagine one of our pets ending up on our plates.

Hopefully with word getting out, the consumption of dog and cat meat will soon be illegal in every country.

She's Coming Around! Elisabeth Hasselbeck Lashes Out At Anti-Gay Marriage Protestors!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayElisabeth HasselbeckLGBT

We never thought we'd see the day, but seriously, we couldn't be more excited that she's coming around a little bit!

During Monday's episode of The View, the ladies were discussing the weekend's legal gay marriages in New York City, and surprisingly, Elisabeth Hasselbeck spoke out against those who chose to protest the happy occasion!

Check out her opinion on the matter (above)!

Very well-spoken and articulate! And for once in her life, pretty spot on!

You don't have to agree with her opinions on gay rights, but we think it's very commendable of her to show this kind of tolerance and logical thinking regarding the issue at hand!

Slowly but surely, the change is coming!

Egypt's Mubarak Will Not Step Down… Yet

Filed under: Politik

Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak announced in his address to the country that he will not be stepping down immediately.

He did, however, promise to cede all (or most) of his power to the Vice President Omar Suleiman — although Mubarak will still retain the title of President.

Egypt’s protesters responded with fury and are not happy at all with Mubarak’s statements. They want him out now — not in September like he promises.

In the speech Mubarak commented that he will not take orders from foreign sources (presumably the US and other countries who have approached him).

Mubarak needs to do more than this. We understand that there needs to be order to this transition as to avoid more chaos, but the people of Egypt won’t be satisfied as long as he’s still in office!

Anderson Cooper "Little Bit Scared," Moves To Undisclosed Location In Egypt

Filed under: PolitikAnderson CooperPerezTV

As the violence rises in Egypt, Anderson Cooper and his 360 crew have moved to an undisclosed location where they taped Thursday night's show from a dimly lit room.

In this clip (above), Anderson says he's "a little bit scared" for his and his crew's safety and doesn't "really know what the next few hours will hold" for not only his crew, but for the people of Egypt. He continues:

"I can't tell you where we are, frankly for our own safety. Systematically, we have seen journalists attacked…we would like to be showing you instead of…this strange image of us sitting on the floor of an undisclosed location in dim lighting, we would like to be showing you pictures, live pictures, of what's happening in Liberation Square right now, but we can't do that because our cameras have systematically been taken down through threats, through intimidation, through actual physical attacks."

During the segment Anderson shows video footage of violent attacks in Liberation Square.

We warn you, some of the footage is very graphic and very hard to watch.
