“And now, ladies and gentleman, he will make this stupid face for the entire movie”
“Social Activist” and Slumdog Millionaire critic Nicholas Almeida is making headlines again – not for actually helping the poor of course, but for more meaningless publicity whoring.
Almeida has announced that he’s naming stray dogs after those involved in the film to protest against the title.
Nicholas Almeida, a social activist and slum dweller himself, has filed a complaint in a local court against director Danny Boyle, producer Christian Colson and the distributor, saying the film’s title was damaging and discriminating.
“When the British ruled India, they called Indians ‘dogs’. Why do we want to call these poor children ‘dogs’ 60 years after we got independence?” Almeida, an elected member of the city civic body who lives in a suburban slum, told Reuters. [Yahoo]
Who’s this “we” you speak of, guy who lives in India but is named “Nicholas Almeida”? Also, have you ever had a dog? Being compared to a dog isn’t a huge injustice, because dogs are f-cking awesome. If I was walking down the street carrying a bucket of water, and Nicholas Almeida was on fire in front of me on the sidewalk, and across the street was a dog, I’d drop the bucket and go pet the doggie.
