We're not sure this qualifies as either, but it's worth watching.

Demand a plan, Hollywood stars?

A new viral video sends a very different message: Demand Celebrities Go F–k Themselves.

YouTube user Mike Hunt has created a response to the PSA recorded a few weeks ago by various famous faces - from Jamie Foxx to Jason Bateman - in which celebrities urge the public to push for stricter gun control laws.

"I was immediately struck by the irony of their entire campaign,” Hunt tells EW. “Here are a bunch of vapid Hollywood celebrities attempting to shame the public into submitting to more gun control. Their entire industry profits from a culture of violence and gun entertainment.

"I was really surprised at the amount of positive responses and feedback the video has received. Hopefully a few of these ‘stars’ see it and maybe turn the microscope back on their hypocritical industry.”

Watch the videos above and then vote below: Does Hunt have a point? Are celebrities hypocrities by fighting for tighter gun restrictions?

Officials in India’s Assam state have suspended politician Bikram Singh Brahma after he was accused of raping a woman - and subsequently beaten by women in a village.

Clips posted to the web showed him being stripped of his shirt and slapped by several women in response to the allegation. Take a look at the surprising footage:

According to the BBC, Bikram Singh Brahma was detained on Thursday after the victim’s husband reported the alleged rape, which shocked his community.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi told the BBC his action was “condemnable” and he should be punished ... though this was likely not what he had in mind.

Pressure has grown for tougher action after a woman was raped and attacked in Delhi in December and later died. Five men were arrested in that incident.

So to speak.
