Adam Levine Has Very Strong Feelings About Honey Boo Boo


Adam Levine really, really dislikes Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

He tells GQ:

"Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the DECAY of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good. So many people witness atrocities and can't take their eyes away from them, but that doesn't mean they're good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That's. Ever. Happened. It's complete f**king ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F**k those people. You can put that in the magazine: F**k those idiots. They're just the worst. Sorry, I'm so sensitive to that—like, I don't know, man, it's upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, "F**K THOSE PEOPLE."

Ugandan Gay Activist Speaks Out About 'Kill the Gays' Bill: VIDEO


Truthloader spoke with Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, founder and executive director of LGBT rights group Freedom and Roam Uganda, whom as you may recall was honored last year by the Geneva-based Martin Ennals Foundation with its annual prize for human rights defenders as "an exceptional woman of a rare courage, fighting under death threats for human dignity and the rights of homosexuals and marginalized people in Africa."

Nabagesera talks about the consequences of the anti-homosexuality bill for her, her partner, and other LGBT people and allies living in Uganda.


In related news, activist group Sum of Us is calling on Pepsi to speak out against the bill.

But our allies on the ground tell us that if Pepsi, which has a huge presence in Uganda, speaks out against the bill and the harmful effect it would have on investment and economic development in Uganda, it would force Ugandan officials to put the bill on hold -- or even pull it entirely.
