I mean really? Who cares? We just want to see a ••••ing fight, right?

And you must not offend regardless of how stupid otherwise. Hollywood's compliance with this borders on stupid. For example, I was watching an episode of Criminal Minds. Plot: Gay boy is raised by prison guard who tries to beat gayness out of said gay. Gay graduates, moves to Florida, and proceeds to seek out gay guys for a date and when they hit on him he murders them. Becomes gay serial killer. When the Criminal Mind team finds him they are in the classic stand off and one of the team starts telling him, "There is nothing wrong with you."

Seriously?

This dude is a serial killer! And you say there is nothing wrong with him.

Geez.

not really that simple ... i know you know that ..... just saying tho ... they have major sponsors now, on fox, their fighters are tied to brands like nike, burger king (lol), under armour, gatorade .. thats a lot of exposure .. and when you have some one saying dumb things that potentially could be offensive to a good percentage of the paying customers, you don't want to alienate those people and therefore sitting back and doing nothing is not an option ...
