You Little Rat

Only one of them is a puppet.

We're just sayin'...

Levin has a lot of room to talk. He's a loser lawyer. At least she has made some thing of her life. Plus she's cute. Cutest rat I've ever seen. Watch out Levin, she can probably kick your ass. I can see you guys going after these retatrd stars but a 16 year old girl in the olympics. You guys are a piece of @&%#.

Do you have any idea of the amount of time, concentration, talent and dedication it takes to become a world class gymnast? Shawn Johnson has more than proven herself as the epitome of the Olympic athlete.. She won SILVER and GOLD at the most important venue available. She represented our country with pride and excellence!
I find your attitude and commentary very TACKY and unwarranted. We should be extolling her virtues instead of making a juvenile comparisonat her expense. This time you really missed the mark in a very shallow and hurtful way. She deservres an IMMENSE apology from TMZ and the respect she has earned.

OMG people calm down...whatever happened to freedom of speech in this country????
So some people at TMZ found that Shawn looked like that mouse...SO WAT!!!! We are all entitled to our own opinion in this country. I am sure that the people at TMZ were not trying to dis her because she is an AMAZING gymnast. Not to mention that i am sure they were not trying to insult her because the mouse is actually really cute.
So chill out and try to find the humor in it

Oh are you sure you folks have it right? I'm old so I know this. Topo Gigio was one of the most adorable characters of all time. He was on the Ed Sullivan show and his saying "Eddie, kiss me godnight." was the cutest thing in the world. I think they were comparing lovable to lovable, that's all.

I think everybody just needs to calm down! this post is funny as hell!!
Just becasue she is 16 doesn't mean she can't be made fun of, TMZ pokes fun at younger girls and I don;t see any hoopla over all that.

How much more disgusting, distasteful, and inappropriate can TMZ get? Stick to picking on those who bring it on themselves!! She has done nothing but good!

I never had any respect for TMZ to begin with, but now you've just gone to far. It probably was meant as a joke, but some things are off limits...SHAWN JOHNSON IS OFF LIMITS! She is THE most lovable and gracious teen in America. A real role model for our youth. On top of that she is very, very attractive. Just imagine how beautiful Shawn will be when we see her again in the London Olympics. I can't believe the depths of TMZ's depravity!

Like I said before, SHAWN JOHNSON IS OFF LIMITS. Don't make me stab you in the eye...I don't want to do it but I will.

This is like when some jackass tells a bad joke and they are the only one who laughs.
