Reason #1,987,326 why hugs are better than violence: violence scares away even the bravest and most handsome of zombie killers, such as Brad Pitt!

As you’ve probably heard by now, there have been deadly riots and national demonstrations occurring in Brazil.

The latest Brad Pitt film, World War Z, was supposed to premiere there with the usual star-studded appearances and red carpet flair.

Unfortunately, the current situation has been deemed unsafe and the premiere is no longer occurring.

Paramount released the following statement:

Air Jordan XI Concord Release Causes Mass Chaos

Shoppers wanting to get their hands on a pair of the new Nike Air Jordans on Friday did some serious damage at malls across the United States.

In Indianapolis sneaker freaks broke the door to the Lafayette Square Mall and jumped over people on the floor, including a small child, to get to the $180 XI Concords. According to a a man in North Carolina, the same thing happened there as well. He explained:

"People started getting restless, so they cracked open the doors and next thing you know people started getting trampled and bum-rushed — the doors fell on some girls' heads and … it was horrible, it was real bad."

A store in Richmond, California ended up canceling the sale after gunfire went off outside the mall. Luckily, no one was hurt and the 24 year old gunman was hauled off the jail.

One of the saddest reports came from Atlanta, where police had to break the windows to a car after a woman left her two kids inside so she could buy the shoes. She was promptly arrested once she returned to her car.

Wow. And all of this for a pair of shoes!? Despicable!

Check out the clip (above) to see some of the craziness.

Fox News Caught Using False Video Of Riots!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

….are you surprised??

No wonder studies show Fox News' viewers are more misinformed than viewers who don't even watch the news!!!

Faux News has been caught doing what it does best — fabricating stories that affect the political shape of the world.

When they presented videos of wild, chaotic riots as the ones taking place in Russia, they were actually showing their audience video of Greek riots (which, in reality, were way more severe).

They are a major television news network under the guise of unbiased journalism, preaching responsibility to report legit, fair news regarding the political climate. …And they're sooo good at it, aren't they?

David Beckham Dresses Down A Few Eras To Discuss His Future

Filed under: David BeckhamSoccerOlympics

David Beckham 60s chic

We didn't think it was possible for David Beckham to get any hotter in our book, but then we saw him rockin' this 60's chic look!

The Los Angeles Galaxy player posed with an old school pompadour for the Wall Street Journal Magazine to which he explains his latest fashion venture, his future in soccer, and the London riots.

Inspired by his wife's success in the fashion world, Beckham has branched out on his own and is working with H&M on an upcoming line of formfitting "body wear."

Much like his deal with Adidas, he's not just giving the clothing company the rights to use his name in advertisements — he's directly involved every step of the way. He explained to WSJ:

"I'm totally involved in everything that goes out there in stores,. I don't just sign with a company and give my name to do whatever they want. Everything that goes out there is something I would wear."

As for his athletic future, expect to see him playing soccer for a little while longer.

Despite growing a few more gray hairs on his head since his fourth child, Harper, was born, the 37-years-old is eager to join his English countrymen on the field during the 2012 summer Olympics, saying:

"I don't just want to be a coach or manager. I want to play."

The former Manchester United player wasn't thrilled to see the English youth rioting in the streets of London earlier this year either, as he groaned:

"We've got the Olympics next year and these pictures are being seen all around the world. It makes me feel physically sick."

The problem may be that kids today aren't respecting authority like other generations, as David elaborated:

"I think it's disgusting what's going on. The problem is, there is a minority of youth today in England who are not scared of authority. If they steal something, they are not worried about the consequences. When I was a kid growing up I respected elders, I respected the law. If I was on a bus and an elderly lady got on, I would stand up and let her sit down. That doesn't happen these days."

We wouldn't expect anything less from this English gent and perhaps he is living proof that chivalry is NOT dead!

London is considerably stricter than the USA regarding gun control, and in light of the recent riots that devastated the city earlier in the year, local officials are demanding an apology!

According to Councillor Ian Rathbone:
