Just How Offensive Is Justin Bieber, Anyway?

You have likely heard by now about a tacky message that Justin Bieber wrote in the guest book at  the Anne Frank museum. As entertaining as it may be to hate on someone with such an exaggerated sense of entitlement, the museum itself has come out in defense of Bieber, stating that his comments were "quite innocent" and that he visited attentively for more than an hour. You win this round, Bieber, but you might want to consult a PR expert before visiting the WTC Museum that's scheduled to open sometime this year.

In today's News of the Wrong, people have been fuming all week over a set of "The Avengers" tee shirts licensed by Marvel. The boys' shirts bear the slogan "Be A Hero," and the girls' say "I Need A Hero." Obviously this is sexist as hell and should be corrected right away. Thankfully, one designer has attempted to cleanse our national palate by re-imagining Disney princesses as members of the famed crime-fighting team, including Pocahontas as Captain America. I don't know what that Snow White/Incredible Hulk hybrid creature needs, but it ain't a hero.

Though they've never admitted it, "Wayne's World" stars Mike Myers and Dana Carvey have been rumored to be feuding practically since "Schwing!" became a thing. However, the duo (plus the original film's director, Penelope Spheeris) have all decided to publicly bury the hatchet at an upcoming panel. "We're all getting too old to be pissed," Spheeris told the Hollywood Reporter. See? It turns out there are beneficial side-effects to aging after all.
