Nelson Mandela Concert Protest Possibility

June 25th, 2008 // 10 Comments

As if the threat of Amy Winehouse showing up high, wig aflame and covered in rodents weren’t enough to scare the organizers of Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday concert
into shutting down the production, now the event is scheduled to be
picketed by demonstrators against Robert Mugabe’s rule in Zimbabwe.

The protestors are asking for Mandela to take a stand and include a
group of human rights activists as well as refugees who have fled from
the African nation. Sudanese rapper Emmanuel Jal is participating in
the concert and told The Times in London, “If Nelson went to talk to him, it would make a difference.”

On a lighter note, to get everyone’s spirits up at the dinner held in
honor of Mandela, Oprah showed up in a fetching Old West schoolmarm’s
ensemble and did a fan dance to entertain all the red carpet arrivals.
Also, I love that a Pussycat Doll was at the same dinner. Gee, I wonder
if her crotchless leather business suit was at the cleaners…

Click any of the photos to view the entire gallery of 27 photos from the Dinner In Honor Of Nelson Mandela.

Featured in the Gallery: Annie Lennox, Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, Kim Cattrall, Oprah Winfrey, Uma Thurman, Arpad Busson, Robert De Niro, Grace Hightower, Lewis Hamilton, Nicole Scherzinger, Bill Clinton, Forest Whitaker, Bob Geldof, Chelsea Clinton, Naomi Campbell, Pierce Brosnan and Leona Lewis.

    Oraph thinks she’s a Southern Belle.

    You’re not. You’re just a fat ignorant deluded negroid HIPPOcrite with deep racial hatreds.

  2. pj

    Let me guess … did these liberal Marxist Hollyweirdos drive over in their hybrids? No, you say? How about their gas guzzling private jets. Frauds and liars, everyone of them.

    Hmmmm. Uma Thurman picks the most “interesting-looking” men…
    :-P

    I think that is the first time I’ve seen DeNiro’s wife smile!
    Uma’s guy looks like a lot of fun!
    Love Annie Lennox-hate her outfit though!

    …and Snow Pie said, …”deep racial hatreds.” Pot/kettle/black.

  5. say what?

    sheeee-it, snow pie, what happened to you to make you such a bitter, bigoted person?

    or were you parents just really fucked up and indoctrinated you with hatred from an early age?

    I’m with snowpie. Oprah is a POS traitor to women. She pushes that disgusting Muslim B HUSSEIN Obama down our throats and we don’t want him. We don’t trust him!! UGH!!

  7. Zekers

    Sandy, you and Snow Pie would make a lovely couple…a marriage of hate, fear and prejudiced minds.

  8. say what?

    methinks that Sandy and Snow Pie are one. (but not in his/her/its tiny little mind…)

    sandy, dear, educate yourself. Obama is not a Muslim. I’d also like to know why you call him disgusting. you’re certainly entitled to your opinion, but what do you base that on?

    Sandy/Snow Pie

    Are you american? You’re giving them a bad name, so just keep your closed minded opinions (and misinformed ones at that) to yourself!

    Snow pie and Sandy:

    It really pains me to read your responses. I would hasten to guess your age group is proably, 19-30ty…The exact age group that we need to vote in this election. Yet with your lack of critical thinking and misinformed attittudes >>its really a testament to how ignorate we are in this global world. It also, explains why non-americans, the international community dislike us soo much. Do yourself a favor educate your self, rather than giving into what is easy, ignorance. The truth is something you have to seek and you will NOT find it in mass media.
