Slate. Wiped. Clean!
That's the hope for director Peter Berg, who's had a tough week on Instagram.
First, he posted a controversial meme on his page regarding Caitlyn Jenner and her ESPYS Award, comparing her negatively to American soldiers.

Then, a photo agency asked Berg to take down his transphobic meme — not because of money over their rights to the picture, they told us in an exclusive, but because they didn't agree with the hateful message Berg sent.
Berg had a Friday deadline to remove that image, and he complied, deleting it from the web to try to put the whole issue behind him!
About the ordeal, Berg told reporters:

The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber finally aired Monday night, and though there were a lot of fun jabs at the Biebs and other celebs, there was one aspect of the show that left us cold.

There just seemed to be way too many jokes at the expense of Bruce Jenner!
First there were the on-air jokes made by Roast host Kevin Hart, such as:

Oops they did it again!
After successfully pissing off Irish Americans, Urban Outfitters is already offending another group: the LGBT community.
Advocates are up in arms over what Urban describes as a "charming" transphobic greeting card based off the classic Jack & Jill nursery rhyme. The card reads:
Jack and Jill,
Went up the hill,
So Jack could see Jill's fanny,
But Jack got a shock,
And an eyeful of cock,
Because Jill was a closet tranny.
The card was only available on UO's UK website and has since
been yanked from the website sold out.
So far no comment from Urban Outfitters.

Yep, they went there.
Libra Tampons has pissed off a lot of people and not because it's "that time of the month".
The feminine product maker is running an commercial that shows a drag queen and a blonde woman getting competitive in front of a bathroom mirror when the blonde pulls out her secret weapon: a tampon!
The ad ends with "Libra gets girls", but what they don't get is how blatantly transphobic they're being.
Watch the ad (above) and tell us what U think!
