Charlie Brown Converts to Islam?
“Rescue Me” star Denis Leary has been stiring up some controversy lately after posting a parody of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” on his website last week where Charlie Brown converts to Islam. There are alot of offensive jokes towards Muslims and stereotypes that are glorified in this movie. I can’t lie though, I laughed a little but I believe every religion including mine, Christianity, can be parodied; let’s embrace our world’s diversity. Here’s more from the Hollywood Reporter:
Leary, the self-described “five-time Emmy award loser,” tweeted the arrival of the three-minute cartoon from his Apostle production company twice last week and it hit the well-trafficked siteWhoSay.com five days ago, though it seems to be getting more attention after Christmas than it did prior to the holiday. On Tuesday, WhoSay listed it among its biggest-trending videos, even though the video is actually several years old and once resided at the Comedy Central website. Versions have been on YouTube for years.
