Mother Apologizes After Her Young Son Wears Lewd McDonald’s Parody Shirt to School

The video that you are about to watch might be the best, and most adorably innocent, thing that you'll see all day.

An elementary school student wore what he thought at the time to be a McDonald's shirt. Honestly, he was probably just sleepy and grabbed a shirt that fit.

Unfortunately, the intensely lewd shirt was a parody … one that went right over his head.

Texas mom Shelly McCullar was stunned after her son wore a shirt designed to parody the McDonald's logo in a deeply inappropriate manner.

Not only did she not realize that he wore it to school, but he didn't realize that it was anything but a McDonald's shirt.

Unfortunately, though the shirt does read "I'm lovin' it," which is McDonald's irritating slogan …

(Nothing against McDonald's, but they've never had a good slogan during my lifetime)

… It does not actually show the golden arches.

Instead, it shows the silhouette of a woman's spread legs. One might infer that the implied woman is wearing nothing save a pair of heels.

In other words, the shirt advertises sex with a woman.

McCullar offers an apology — and an explanation.

"Once again, my sincere apologies to the teachers and staff at Travis Elementary. I promise from now on to monitor what my kids are wearing!"

Obviously, some parents go overboard when it comes to rigidly controlling what their children (who are people!) wear. But, in this case, this is not a shirt that should be worn by an elementary school student.

"I had no idea Anthony wore this to school!!"

Of course. Plenty of parents are busy. And if it's cold, you might never see their undershirt.

"Just to clarify, I would never let my kid wear something like this."

Few parents would.

She explains how this came to pass.

"A friend had given me some hand me down clothes for Anthony."

Clearly, this boy is not the only one who didn't notice that the shirt was inappropriate.

"I haven’t had the chance to completely go through them. I will tonight though!!"

We're sure that she did.

"Through my embarrassment, I did [laugh my ass off]!!"

She finished that with a couple of tags:

Our favorite part about this story might be that … no one seemed to notice.

The boy didn't notice, because even if he thinks about girls in that context, he's just not old enough to immediately connect his shirt's logo to sex.

But it seems that no teacher noticed, either.

We live in a world where girls are sent home because their sleeves are too short, flaunting their sinful shoulders which will surely leave boys too enthralled to concentrate in class.

And yet … not one teacher commented on this boy's shirt.

There are two possible explanations.

The first is heuristics. It's how the human mind processes sensory information, valuing efficiency over accuracy. His shirt has the colors and general shape of a McDonald's logo, so it may register automatically as that to a teacher who has twenty-plus other students.

As the child says, "they thought it was like McDonald’s too."

That said … it's also possible that a teacher noticed but was simply too embarrassed to call attention to it.

Teachers and administrators will absolutely do that. They'll see something that violates school policy but they'll make a judgment call to pretend that they didn't see it.

This child is clearly so innocent that he had no idea what he was wearing. A teacher didn't want to be the one to explain sex to a kid without his parent's permission.

Also, calling attention to it would mean that other students would be involved. There's no good solution there … except to pretend that you never noticed.

Jimmy Kimmel Apologizes to LGBT Community, Aims to Squash Beef with Sean Hannity

All Jimmy Kimmel is saying to Sean Hannity is…

… let’s give peace a chance.

Of course, this is not ALL Kimmel has been saying to Hannity, which is why the talk show host issued a lengthy statement on Twitter over the weekend.

Over the past several days, Kimmel and Hannity have been embroiled in quite a feud.

It started when the former made a few cracks about Melania Trump’s accent, which prompted Hannity to call Kimmel an “ass clown.”

(Kimmel had quipped about the First Lady pronouncing “this” as “dis” and setting a poor example for some school kids to whom she was reading.)

Kimmel made some jokes online in response, calling out Hannity for never exactly defending women or immigrants in the past, to which Hannity replied by playing clips of Kimmel as host of The Man Show many years ago.

He referred to Kimmel as “Harvey Weinstein Jr” and as a “pervert” for the way in which he interacted with women on this program back in the day.

From there, Kimmel made cracks about Hannity leaving lipstick on President Donald Trump’s rear end and wondering whether Hannity was a “top” or a “bottom” in his relationship with the Commander-in-Chief.

It was these jabs that, at least in part, have caued Kimmel to put an end to his back-and-forth with Hannity.

“By lampooning Sean Hannity’s deference to the President, I most certainly did not intend to belittle or upset members of the gay community and to those who took offense, I apologize,” wrote Kimmel, adding that he did “have fun” exchanging barbs with Hanniyu.

HOWEVER…

“After some thought I realize that the level of vitriol (mine and me included) does nothing good for anyone and, in fact, is harmful to our country.”

The comedian also touched on “vile attacks” against his wife and “wishes for death” on his infant son that he had received as a result of the exchange, expressing hope that the instigators would “give their words and actions thought.”

Tongue firmly planed in cheek at times, Kimmel got in a few shots at Hannity while still seeking to calm tempers, writing:

I will take Sean Hannity at his word that he was genuinely offended by what I believed and still believe to be a harmless and silly aside referencing our First Lady’s accent.

I am hopeful that Sean Hannity will learn from this too and continue his newly-found advocacy for women, immigrants and First Ladies and that he will triumph in his heroic battle against sexual harassment and perversion.”

Hannity did not respond to this statement with one of his own.

Not yet at least anyway.

“Just had this pop up. I am at a tournament with my daughter. I’ll have a full and comprehensive response tomorrow on Hannity. 9 EST FOX,” the Fox News veteran Tweeted on Sunday.

sh reply

Even before this argument with Hannity, Kimmel was often a target of disdain from conservatives.

He has used his platform often of late to advocate for various causes, breaking down in tears at one point over a failure of Congress to pass gun control legislation.

Kimmel also pushed hard and emotionally for universal health care after his newborn son had to undergo emergency heart surgery last year.

You can watch Kimmel and his child together in the following video while the world anxiously waits to see if Hannity responds to Kimmel’s statement with class and maturity or…

… LOL, who are we kidding?

While we wait to see just how Hannity brags about how he clearly won this ongoing debate.

Fergie Apologizes for Disastrous National Anthem

Forgive the mixed sports metaphor, but Fergie really wishes she could have a mulligan on her NBA All-Star Game national anthem performance.

The artist made headlines for all the wrong reasons on Sunday night after she donned a sexy dress and then belted out some kind of sultry rendition of our nation’s theme song.

Pretty much every single person who heard this version of the Star-Spangled Banner laid into it. Hard.

We mean it, too: Every. Single. Person.

Heck, even Roseanne Barr claimed her disrespectful and disastrous performance way back in 1990 was better than whatever Fergie was trying to accomplish.

We disagree with that assessment.

But the general point remains: This was a baffling and bizarre rendition by Fergie.

Take a look and take a listen for yourself if you have not already done so:

In the wake of universal panning across the Internet, Fergie has taken a step we can’t ever recall an artist taking after he or she performed a less-than stellar anthem:

She’s come out and apologized.

“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” she said in a statement first published by TMZ.

The statement continued:

“I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.”

Pretty impressive, right?

Many stars over the years have attempted to put their own spin on this legendary song by holding certain notes for a long period of time or emphasizing certain lyrics.

Fergie likely thought she would attempt something similar.

She just lacks the vocal range to pull anything too unique off with her range, so she went the seductive route instead.

It failed miserable, as evidenced by the Tweets below…

oh, fergie

… but it’s hard not to admire Fergie for admitting it and for taking responsibility for it.

And we certainly never thought for a second that Fergie had anything but love for the United States.

At various points, the Black Eyed Pea seemed to struggle to hit notes, although she closed out the tune with an impressive vibrato, telling the arena at the very end:

“Let’s play some basketball!”

Thankfully, the All-Star Game itself was so competitive that some people forgot all about Fergie’s opening fail.

Some, that is. But very clearly not most.
