Another week. Another week.
There were some sad notes — the death of “Jackass” Ryan Dunn being the worst — but there were some moments of levity.
We crowned a new Miss USA. A rapper decided to write a novel about bullying. Weird Al released a weird video.
A journalist came out as an illegal alien. Jon Stewart made someone angry. (Multiple people, actually.) And Donald Trump was Donald Trump.
The Pulitzer Prize winning journalist came out as an illegal immigrant. It was a bold statement for him to make, one that might end up with him getting in trouble, but it was an admirable stance to take. He launched a campaign, Define American, to help fight for immigrant rights.
You gotta love Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson. He's penning a 'semi-autobiographical' novel about being bullied. While it's hard to imagine anyone pushing him around -- the dude is enormous -- it's great to see that he's joining the cause.
You can say a lot of things about Jon Stewart, but his humour is not racially motivated. Herman Cain, however, thinks it was.
