Associated Press:

The NATO-led security force in Afghanistan on Thursday condemned the behavior of military personnel seen in a video apparently urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters, and said the personnel are no longer serving there.  “This disrespectful act is inexplicable and not in keeping with the high moral standards we expect of coalition forces,” the International Security Assistance Force said a statement.

The ISAF said the actions “appear to have been conducted by a small group of U.S. individuals, who apparently are no longer serving in Afghanistan.” The statement did not identify the personnel or explain why the ISAF thought they had left the country.

Dutch Magazine Editor Fired For Calling Rihanna A “Ni**a B**ch”

Dutch magazine featured a write-up on pop star Rihanna where they labeled her a “Ni**a B**ch” as shown above – which was approved by the editor in chief of 8 years Eva Hoeke.

Rihanna’s response to the magazine:

“I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful and rather desperate!! You ran out of legit, civilized information to print!”

“There are 1000′s of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race! That’s your contribution to this world! To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together, with the intent of abasement, that made no sense … ‘N—a Bi**h’?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you … F— YOU!!!”

Eva Hoeke’s resignation statementL

“Because of the enormous pressure from social media, I can promise improvement in terms of language used in future issues of Jackie. Previously, I offered rectification. As I now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution, I am departing.

“The term ‘nigga bitch” has come over from America and we have only this to describe this particular style of clothes that we can try to interpret.

“After eight years, with my heart and soul, I have worked for Jackie. I realize that these errors – although no malicious intent – is a reason to leave.”

Controversy Over Chris Brown ”Good Morning America” Interview

NY Post: ABC has booked Rihanna-beater Chris Brown for an interview and a performance on “Good Morning America” — right after the network canceled guy-kisser Adam Lambert.

Brown will do a taped tell-all with Robin Roberts, followed by a performance of songs from his new album. But TV insiders say the appearance, slated to air the week after next, has outraged feminists and gay activists who wonder why a convicted girlfriend abuser is more palatable to the network than an openly gay man who broke no laws with his raunchy performance on the “American Music Awards.”

ABC source said, “The network is giving a mixed message — that it doesn’t trust someone who shocked with an unpredictable show and a gay kiss, but then it is happy to go ahead with Chris Brown, who was convicted of felony assault.”

ABC News has insisted that Lambert’s sexual orientation did not play a role in its decision to pull the plug on his “GMA” appearance this week.

ABC insiders said they ruled the “American Idol” star’s sexed-up shenanigans on Sunday’s awards show — which included him groping a female dancer, kissing a male musician and shoving a male dancer’s face into his crotch — were inappropriate for morning TV. One said, “He was not canceled over a gay kiss. He showed himself to be unpredictable on live TV.”

Brown, who taped his interview with Roberts last weekend, was sentenced in August to six months’ labor and five years’ probation after he pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna in February. “GMA” hopes his appearance could provide a ratings boost, just like Rihanna’s “GMA” interview earlier this month where she told Diane Sawyer she saw “no soul in his eyes” as he beat her.

The top ABC insider added: “Chris Brown’s interview was booked way before Adam Lambert took to the stage. It is to give him a chance to respond to Rihanna’s interview. The possibility of him performing a song will be worked out next week.”

Lots Of Controversy Over Deleted Images Of African-American Actors On UK Ad For ”Couples Retreat”

InsideMovies: Racism or marketing tactic?
Universal is facing a potential PR mess for its decision to digitally remove the names and images of the only black couple in ‘Couples Retreat’ on the film’s UK movie poster.

According to England’s The Daily Mail, a Universal spokesman said the updated ad was released “to simplify the poster to actors who are most recognizable in international markets.”

But some are calling foul on the complete removal of actors Kali Hawk and Faizon Love from the film’s poster. “I think this was an ill-conceived move,” Mediawatch-UK director Vivienne Pattison told the Mail. “We celebrate diversity in Britain and we could have coped with seeing the same poster used in America.”

In the U.S. version, all eight principal stars, including Hawk and Love, are seen standing knee-deep in water with their names displayed above. For the UK version, a different backdrop is shown with only the six (white) actors and actresses on display.

“Any discrepancy between the posters is cause for alarm because it makes racist assumptions about target markets,” says Ann Simonton, founder of the non-profit organization Media Watch. “But this is a somewhat common response to how advertisers target audiences. So much of advertising depends on our ignorance and it’s important for the consumer to remain ignorant. When they eliminate diversity, it maintains this false view of our world. It’s sickening to think about what the industry’s motives are, but it’s important that they be called on it.”

Daily Mail film critic Jason Solomons weighed in over the weekend, noting, “We don’t cater much for the black cinema-going audience in this country, which is a great shame, so it seems strange that when there are black stars in a major feature film, this fact isn’t promoted. And, in terms of business decisions, this seems a pretty counter-productive one.”

For its part, Universal has acknowledged the omission, saying it regretted offending anyone and is abandoning plans to use the revised poster in other countries.
But you have to wonder: If they regretted offending anyone, why would they alter the poster in the first place?
