Sign Of Sick Times

When I heard this morning that some people defaced yet another historic icon, my heart sank. I mean when is enough enough? Must they deface even our heritage?

The story is here at LA Times. The unthinkable happened again. I mean if you tear down a statue of Grant or Lincoln, well, it is just another day in the park.

But this, this act of utter disgust just cannot stand.

Four culprits were immediately arrested for altering the signage of the famous Hollywood site. This time they made it read “Hollyboob” for a short time. (*Age-appropriate content)

As expected, it set off many lifelong boob enthusiasts, who were highly offended. One person, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he/she/it will never be the same after witnessing the dastardly deed.

“I cannot imagine this happening right in my community…..you always read stories about random acts of bigotry but to see it in your own community like this is chilling.” The anonymous source went on to say,  “I just don’t know how I will explain this to my children, I may have to seek counseling.”

Fortunately, police were right on the scene shortly after the act was committed. They had no comments, but shock was evident in the faces of responding officers.

That’s it for us here on the scene of the boob alert. And what a scene it has been.

NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK — [issued a statement]

Reverend Al Sharpton, President

STATEMENT BY REV. AL SHARPTON BLASTING THE LACK OF DIVERSITY IN TODAY’S OSCAR NOMINATIONS—

SHARPTON CALLS FOR MEETING WITH NAN TASK FORCE IN HOLLYWOOD TO ASSESS ACTION

January 15, 2015 (New York, NY)— “The lack of diversity in today’s Oscar nominations is appalling and while it is good that Selma was nominated for ‘Best Picture,’ it’s ironic that they nominated a story about the racial shutout around voting while there is a racial shutout around the Oscar nominations. With all of the talent in Selma and other Black movies this year, it is hard to believe that we have less diversity in the nominations today than in recent history. National Action Network (NAN) has formed a task force on the movie industry to deal with diversity as I engage in dialogue with Sony Pictures Co-Chairman Amy Pascal. The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets. I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards.”
