Albinos boycott The Da Vinci Code!
Oh no, Tom Hanks must be shivering in his boots! 18,000 Albinos -(I capitalize becuase I like to think of them as being from their own country)- not going to see your film must really frighten you.
Albinos are protesting "what they call 'hateful' stereotypes assigned to Albinos in literature and film." But did you see the movie with Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn? That Albino was pretty nuts and you usually can't fake that on screen.
Personally, I don't think you should make fun of Albinos, as they are in no way cross-eyed, but apparently there is now some big fuss and an emerging Albino's rights movement. I can hear the chants now.
No more Sun, No more Sun
Albinos want some fun
Also, I have heard that calling people an Albino is insensitive.
Actually I am kinda surprised that Albinos have time to get "politically active" with all the sunblock scrubbing on they have to do.
