Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.
And instead of getting upset by this, Swedes are getting their knickers in a twist because the Swedish Broadcasting Company SVT has decided to cut scenes where Pippi Longstocking refers to her dad as a N***** King, in a re-airing of the TV show which was first recorded in the 1960’s.
Apparently being a racist is less offensive in Sweden than censoring racism in a TV show aimed at children.
