A Quick Avatar Update

by Latoya Peterson


Reader Jason pointed me toward this article on Boing Boing covering the Avatar protests:

[F]an Glockgal began making t-shirts that read ‘This is not a tan’ and “Aang can stay Asian and still save the world.’ Viacom, one of the companies which owns a license for the series, has ordered Zazzle.com to take down her storefront.

So, Viacom can find time to address this, but takes almost two months to send a non response to a protest letter from MANAA? After returning the first batch of protest letters to the senders?

Just shaking my head at this one.
