    @ khunnie

    Get your facts right. Such a stupid thing to say. Jesus is a Prophet. Swearing and insulting someone else's faith doesn't make you a better Muslim. Your ignorance is shocking.


    "Insulting someone's religion is NOT freedom of speech period!"

    It most CERTAINLY IS, fool.


    ....Besides...there are no real muslims in the world!....because the Quran clearly states that you are to follow the religion of noah and abraham......and Jesus is the only way to heaven not Muhammad....Muhammad is just a prophet.....so I suggest that all muslims go and re_read the Quran...and re_interprent it....don't just take the mulana's word for what's in the book!


    Some Muslim bitch is suing Disneyland, because they wanted her to wear a hat, on top of her scarf, or work at a different job. They shouldn't have hired her, in the first place. She wouldn't have been able to prove, that she wasn't hired, because of being a Muslin, born in a Muslim country. The Pakistanis, get phony I.D.s that say they're East Indian Hindus.


    Her show is terrible so I wouldn't expect anything more from her than more crap. I am not even offended by this photo just wanted to say what crap her show is.


    Insulting someone's religion is NOT freedom of speech period!


    I totally agree with the comment below. Freedom of speech is going down the drain... you can't even make jokes or poke fun at anyone or anything anymore without having to apologize for it. GET OVER YOURSELVES!!!!!!!!!!


    Good grief, everyone is up in the air about a joke! Get a life. N Minaj does comes out with a dude dressed like the Pope, she is dressed in red resembling Satan, and the Christians aren't supposed to get p*ssed. Yet, something like this and everyone is offended? I am so tired of everyone all getting all scared and righteous if it is a joke in any way related to Muslims, yet jokes that are anti-Jewish, anti-Christian are fine.


    Good lord, who does she think she is?


    Shame on you! I don't care if you just came from the mountain after a long hibernation, that doesn't give you the right to make fun of someone's religion! And to compare your mistake from Kristen Stewart who happened to hurt only her boyfriend and fans while you are mocking say 2.1 BILLIONS muslims in the world!!!! How dare you! That shows how ignorant and stupid you are! You should be the one in hiding, never to show your face to the world.
