Horse Dies During Rodeo! Possibly From Animal Cruelty!!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadHorsesAnimal Cruelty

At the famous Cowtown Rodeo in New Jersey, one of the horses died in the middle of a live performance!

That's awful!! Poor horsie…

What's even worse is the horse, Duke, might have died because of abuse!!

Animal rights activists from SHARK (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness) allege that the horse was secretly being shocked with a cattle-prod device before he was released from his gate.

Paul McCartney Wants Animal Testing Banned Worldwide

Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney is a huge animal lover and big supporter of animal rights.

So of course he was so happy when the European Union (EU) enacted a law that banned all animal testing.

Cruelty Free International (Buav) is an organization that really spearheaded the ban in Europe, and now they've joined forces with Sir Paul to bring that ban to the rest of the world.

New Laws Consider Animal Abuse Exposers Terrorists???

animal cruelty abuse rights exposers terrorist law ag gag awful politics gross

Well this doesn't make much sense! Terrorism? REALLY?

That is, unless the lawmakers are super into abusing animals. Or being paid off. Those are the only ways we could EVER see this happening — because the collection of wide-reaching laws will effectively make it impossible to collect evidence of animal abuse from here on out!

We're talking about cutting off whistleblowers with good hearts or even videographers working with the Humane Society when their evidence usually ends with prosecutions, fines, and even reform among producers! Which is a GREAT thing! Those poor animals!

With the new bills, deemed "Ag-Gag," the people who collect the evidence must turn it into authorities as soon as it's collected, instead of being able to accumulate any detailed or significant body of evidence. Which normally would lead to better results against the offenders!

Gay Sportswriter Thanks Brendon Ayanbadejo

Filed under: Gay Gay GayFootballSuper Bowl

Ever since he won the Super Bowl, Brendon Ayanbadejo's soap box has gotten a lot taller.

Now he can reach more people and spread his most important message: Homophobia in pro sports needs to stop.

He is a straight man, who all on his own took up the fight for LGBT equality in sports.

Chuck Culpepper is a gay sportswriter who is a self-proclaimed "exotic creature" as an aforementioned "gay male sportswriter."

He was also lucky enough to be able to cover the Super Bowl and interview the players before the game.

While in the Ravens' locker room, he spotted a player that he didn't immediately recognize, but after learning who he was, had to go speak to him.

That player was Brendon Ayanbadejo.

Culpepper knew he wanted to talk to him, but didn't know how to handle it. He walked up to Brendon and said the whole interview went a little like this:

Super Bowl Champ Brendon Ayanbadejo Wants To End Homophobia In Pro Sports!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzFootballSuper Bowl

brendon ayanbadejo

Brendon Ayanbadejo is a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens and one of the most outspoken gay rights activists in professional sports.

First, let us say congrats on winning the Super Bowl!!

Second, being a straight pro athlete and "coming out" as a supporter of gay rights must be hard to do.

But Brendon knows that coming out as openly gay would be even harder for a player due to the generally homophobic atmosphere that dominates pro sports.

Piers Morgan Gun Comment Deportation

Bye bye, Piers?

We’re not so sure it’ll happen, but some gun advocates are hoping to send Piers Morgan back over to England.

After an unfriendly argument about gun control in the U.S., Piers has upset gun advocates who now want him gone.

Hmm. You know what would be a better idea? Sending the guns away instead!

Hulk Hogan's Sex Tape War Sees Another Lost Battle! Womp Womp!

Filed under: Legal MattersHulk Hogan

hulk hogan sex tape lawsuit loss

Sorry, Hulk!

Looks like everyone and their nosy mama gets to see you boink your bff's ex for a little bit longer! At least!

After a judge heard Hulk Hogan's argument in court, he ruled against the bandana-wearing wrestler's preliminary motion to strip Gawker's rights to keep it online.

While this may not be the final say in this legal cage-match, it's definitely lowered the bets on Hulk.

Since the judge thinks there's really nothing left to protect of Hulk's privacy (the tape — and his peen — have been seen by basically everyone), he doesn't think pulling the tape now would do any good.

Still, Hulk remains hopeful… for $100M and the wiped-out memory of the planet. Yeah, good luck with that last part!
