I've got mad props for anyone who takes their jobs seriously. Like Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen in the classic film about garbage men, Men at Work, I mean, those guys weren't going to let the fact that they were sanitation workers get in the way of doing what's right, and I applaud them for their efforts.
But in all seriousness, when someone puts everything on the line in order to be excellent at what they do, there's nothing that makes a human being more interesting or, in my opinion, sexy.
However, there are some lines that are probably better left uncrossed, according to most people.
And a lot of people think that CNN reporter Reza Aslan crossed that line when he consumed human brains on TV.
So why did Aslan eat people? Well, it was part of his investigation of an extremely small Hindu sect (we're talking less than 100 people here) who practice cannibalism.
People are understandably upset because the VAST majority of Hindus don't eat people or their brains, and they're accusing Aslan of promoting xenophobia.
"With multiple reports of hate-fueled attacks against people of Indian origin from across the U.S., the show characterizes Hinduism as cannibalistic, which is a bizarre way of looking at the third largest religion in the world,” Hindustan Times reported the US India Political Action Committees said in a statement.
Tulsi Gabbard, a Hindu congresswoman from Hawaii went HAM on Aslan's brain-eating on Twitter.
Other people took to Twitter to support what Gabbard was saying and criticize Aslan's "Believer" as mischaracterizing an entire religion.
Aslan seems to be unphased by all of the criticism.
And if how our society's responses to past "outrages" are any indication, all of this hubbub surrounding Aslan's brain-eating will probably, at the end of the day, just garner him some more ratings. What do you think?
