TMZ - stop trying to save your readership/ratings with ridiculous pieces. Your site is becoming more irrelevant by the day.

its funny how TMZ rips on the way some people look, even as adorable as Shaun. They do it on the tv show do but i guess they dont own mirrors cuz theres no Brad Pitts walking around that news room.

Its funny how they'll make fun of how someone looks or a lot of times on the show you'll see that blonde loser that desperatly needs a haircut act like he doesnt know who someone is or what theyre famous for as if he has actual talent and is someone important.

The show would be 1000x better if they just took out all the newsroom stuff and just did the stories because who really wants to see a guy drink from his cup while he writes names on a glass board with his marker? They tune in to see the stories not a bunch of nobodies bash people more famous then them.

It's bad enough that so many kids get bullied at school (especially the talented ones), do they really need to be bullied by grown adults? You just gave fuel to the fire. TAKE IT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shawn is adorable. The first time I saw her, I thought, oh what a cute little girl, and she performed beautifully. I was proud that she was representing the country I call home and love, and to put this up comparing her to rat? That is a little low. TMZ usually has a little higher morale than a lot of the other sites, and I find this trashy. Please take this down. Her friends and family and her deserve better than this.
