It's all over the internet. The uproar over the movie Tropic Thunder is moving along as I suspected it would. The disability community across the country has plans to protest the opening of this movie throughout the US and beyond. People tried to warn Dreamworks that they wouldn't stand for this "film" to be released without them editing it first. That would have meant rewriting, editing, and reshooting the movie, which I knew they wouldn't do.
So now we have an interesting scenario where you'll be seeing scores of protesters in front of theaters where it will be shown. Ben will no longer be a crowd favorite (as with Jack and Robert), but will be crucified in the media when it comes to light that their attempt at crude humor was a big mistake.
I can see it now. Ben Stiller answering questions about why it's being slammed. He'll talk about it as an afront toward actors who go to great lengths to "make it big". He won't be able to explain how he could make such a hurtful film, knowing the disability community warned him not to.
