TMZ Drinks

The 'Shawn Johnson'


8/21/2008 7:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After getting hundreds of hate emails, phone calls, and rage-filled comments over the last 24 hours, we at TMZ finally took the hint -- not everybody found the Shawn Johnson/Topo Gigio comparison hilarious. Sure, we'll eat the crow you shoved down our throats -- but you gotta check out some of the messages we got in our "contact us" mailbox. We even got a letter from an official Team USA Gymnastics rep!

Launch emails
Yes, we got the message loud and clear, but make sure to click through to the final email -- the one that started this whole mess in the first place.

Ok I totally saw the resmblance, but I thought it was cute and kind of funny. Don't think there was any harm intended.

Clearly, most of you don't have any idea who Topo Gigio was. He was an adorable MOUSE from the Ed Sullivan Show. I adored that little guy, and thought he was as cute as a button...just like Shawn.

I could see the comparison, juckled a bit. However, I don't think tmz should have gone there...she's adorable.

Too bad y'all weren't around in the days of Ugly Korbutt and Mary Lou Ratton.

You know what the Shawn Johnson comparison photo was? A sure sign that pretty soon everyone at TMZ will become unemployed. Now that Britney is fixing her behavior they are starving for stories. Good luck with your pathetic careers. You might actually have to go to college and earn a degree.

With the way local law enforcement officials are cracking down on the lame ass paparazzo wanna be's it won't last much longer. better get your resumes up on craigslist you might actually have to find a job where you can't make fun of everyone in the world..but everyone will be making fun of you. :)

I never thought I'd say it..but for once you make look classy.

That is so mean!!! She is so cute and an example to ALL girls. She won a gold medal and she gets this crap from you guys? what the hell? She didn't do anything wrong! Oh and take that article down, and APOLOGIZE don't just write about the emails you've been getting. Idiots.
