And it's for TWO good causes!!!

Zambia is joining the FUN party of banning trophy hunting, following in Kenya and Botswana's footsteps.

Homeland Being Sued???

Filed under: Legal MattersClaire Danes

Homeland Under Fire

The critics, the viewers, the Emmys- everyone loves Homeland!

At least, that's what we thought. It turns out at least one person can't stand Showtime's domestic terrorism thriller starring Claire Danes.

Fady Abboud, Lebanon's minister of tourism, believes the show radically misrepresents Beirut as a horribly dangerous city and a haven for terrorists.

Abboud is even considering legal action against the award-winning drama. He says:

"We are following the case legally. I raised this at the cabinet meeting, and the president asked the minister for justice and the minister of communications to see what can be done."

We certainly don't want to be blase that the man is offended, but it's not meant to be a documentary, it's just a TV show!

If we took American Horror Story seriously, we'd have to believe literally EVERYONE is El Lay is a ghost! When really it's mostly ghouls! LOLz!

But srsly, we hope they can come to some sort of arrangement before lawsuits and threats come into it! We're all adults, let's act like it!
