We had a feeling this movie was gonna stir up some type of DRAMz!
Fritz Ostermueller's daughter, Sherrill is furious over how her dad was portrayed in the flick, 42, and cannot believe that producers would represent her pops as a racist when he really wasn't one.
During a very relevant scene in the film, the MLB pitcher threw a ball at Jackie Robinson's head, and shouted at him, "You don't belong here!!!," and considering that in real life, the ball apparently hit Robinson's arm, we can see why Sherrill is MAD!!

This can't be true!
You may be able to get the freshest products at Whole Foods, and while we enjoy the store's quality of groceries very much… we NEVER in a million years would've thought that they would display a chicken ad featuring a man that looks like Barack Obama.
Welp, it unfortunately did happen, and when a customer took notice of the ad at a Whole Foods on the Upper West Side in New York City, the advertisement was quickly removed.
However, the dramz didn't stop there. The resident was sooo offended that he even contacted NBC New York, and now, the story behind the Barack-a-doodle-doo ad is being broadcasted.
For more deets, peep the video (above)!!

First, we want you to take a look at the new Coke ad for the Super Bowl (above). When you're done, we want to you think about what you saw.
Would you call it racist??
Apparently a lot of people think so! As you saw, the ad features an Arab walking through the desert with a camel and confronting cowboys, showgirls and other characters.

Ryan Lochte's sister earned herself a lot of criticism over the past few days.
After a video of her giving an extremely ignorant interview made its way around the internet, Megan Lochte's words hurt and offended countless viewers.
But now she's saying her 2008 interview was just a spoof. And even though she appeared in the video under her real name, she says she was playing a character.
To apologize for her post-Beijing Olympics trip, she issued this statement:
"I would like to apologize for the video that is circulating. This was not a real interview, and it in no way reflects my true feelings or persona whatsoever. During that time, I played a character on a television comedy show called Closing Time TV, which was a show with different comedy skits, fake news skits and staged interviews. The video in question reflects a skit from the show in which I acted as an ignorant guest on a talk show that made ignorant comments. The intent was to make fun of the ignorance of people who actually do not have an understanding of other cultures and speak in racist ways. The skit and my character were supposed to be making fun of ignorance."
Well. We can only hope she's being sincere here. But if that was intended to be satire, they could have made it a little clearer from the beginning.

As we previously mentioned, Ryan Lochte's sister Megan is a racist.
She proved that during an ignorant rant on a talk show.
Little did she know, while trying to be "funny" and joking about China, she insulted not only a literal seventh of world's ENTIRE population, but Asians everywhere!
Thankfully, Samantha (a talented singer and avid YouTuber) made a response video.
It's calm, concise, well said and something Megan Lochte needs to hear.
Check out the video (above) to hear an ahmayzing response to Megan's outrageous comments.

Daaaamn Paula Deen, how you gonna turn your back on the thing that made you rich and famous like that??
We guess you don't really need to associate yourself with butter anymore now that you've milked it for all the money you can and because you're done hiding your diabetes from your viewers, but you should probably respect those that got you where you are today!
Here's the ridiculous thing she said she wants to be synonymous with:
"When you hear the name Paula Deen. I want you to think of the word 'hope.'"
Not gonna happen.
People aren't just going to forget the lies and the lawsuits just to replace 'butter' with 'hope.'

How does this happen? Why isn't there SOMEONE there that thought this was a bad idea??
Remember that Acura commercial during the Super Bowl with Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno?
Well Acura really wanted a specific kind of African American to play the role of the car salesman:
