-- Waterboard? More like water excited!
-- The Shore on Terror
-- HomeSand

-- Homeland Sea-curitry
-- Seahaad
-- Code: Pale anyone?
-- Sui-tide Bomber

We could go on, but they're only gonna get worse ...

Seriously, you guys. This is just WRONG. Since when did it become okay again to make fun of the color of a person's skin??? Ohhh, yeeeahh, I remember, since it was decided it was only wrong to make fun of the color of skin of a black person. Oh yyeah..., that's right. How could I forget.? Very classy guys.

Why don't you guys go one better, and tell him to get a tan to look...."normal", or even better still, tell him he'd look way better if he were black.

Damian Lewis is an extraordinary actor who is a natural redhead (burns, no tan) who doesn't "do' the fake spray tan.


Go make fun of someone that deserves it. Like Lindsay Lohan.


Real talent is off limits, TMZ.

I'm as white as a bottle of milk because I just don't tan! (And in Ireland it's not very sunny) but some people just don't want to wear fake tan why should they have too, is there something wrong with me because I'm pale? ......also random point that girl in the blue bikini looks like she has really broad shoulders but its just cause she has her arms up, optical illusion, and I wonder what book that is :) love Homeland.

Do you also ridicule blacks on the beach who are "too black"? Why can't we each just be the color we were born with? Everybody's beautiful in their own way.

So it's okay to pick on redheads? What's wrong with being pale? Who gives a crap? God made him that way so he's fine. I'm a black female, and I'm fine too. He's probably got on a lot of sun block, which would be a very smart thing to do.

A big "f*ck you" to whoever came up with "Code Pale". If a person of a dark complexion were in the photo, instead, would you call it "Code Black" or "Code Brown"? No, because you'd get all sorts of backlash over it being a racist comment.

I'm sick of people who are pale being shamed into either damaging their skin through harmful UV rays or spraying themselves with orange sh*t that rubs off on clothing, and has also raised respiratory-related concerns, in recent years. NO ONE, be they white, black, brown, green, purple... no one should feel like they have to change their skin colour to fit in with society... and no one who makes such stupid-ass comments about someone's skin colour should be tolerated for it. Shame on you, TMZ.

Seriously it's crazy that people can't be pale without getting some comment about it. Pale looks good. All he needs is a good sunscreen & to have fun with his family. Loved him in Forsyth saga.

Why do the people at TMZ continue to ridicule white people without a suntan as freaks? I don't ever recall a reference to a light skinned black person being referred to as being not black enough or an Asian as not having the "proper" skin tone. Being a white woman who has damaged her skin from 50+ years of "sun bathing" I find this highly insulting. Keep up the good work TMZ, I am seriously considering leaving this racist site forever!
