The monkey reference pisses me off to no end.To have them describe Gabby as a flying squirrel, does not sit well with me either.I am honestly at a loss. She's a beautiful flower that soars.She maintains this tranquility that is so benign in folks.She is this fantastic mosaic that encompasses complete athleticism.So, if there was a moniker for her, what would it be?
Why can't they call her the Dragoness That Flies? At least use a regal animal for her moniker, guys. I been trying to ignore the flying squirrel bullshit.
Thank you. A regal moniker. It's not that hard to find.
If you say so however, I'm not so sure. What I am sure of is that this attempt at humor failed which happens on occasion with comedy and he is not our enemy.
It's super easy. They pulled off all that bullshit with Isengard Saruman Brunel in the opening ceremony. I doubt lack of imagination was the problem.She could have been named, being American, the Eagle. Peregrine Falcon (dually appropriate because the females are larger and stronger than the males) . Gryphon. Hawk. Squirrels are annoying pests.
I saw it and thought it was weird but I figured they was just trying to promote their new show during a high ratings programImmediately after NBC finished its broadcast of American gymnast Gabby Douglas' gold medal-winning performance on Thursday, the network cut to a promo spot for one of its new primetime shows, Animal Practice.our editor recommendsThe promo featured the show's star monkey, Crystal, competing on gymnastics rings -- which has drawn criticism on Twitter, as broadcaster Bob Costas had just been speaking of the historical significance of Douglas becoming the first African American woman to win the event. Tod Robberson of the Dallas Morning News called it "supremely thoughtless and undoubtedly insulting to lots of viewers."On Friday, NBC issued a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, insisting that there was no intended racial significance."Gabby Douglas' gold medal performance last night was an historic and inspiring achievement. This spot promoting Animal Practice, which has run three times previously, is one in a series with an Olympic theme which have been scheduled for maximum exposure. Certainly no offense was intended."The network has a several different promos for the show, including three with Olympic themes. With gymnastics and swimming providing a family audience, the network, it's been explained, decided to run the promo for Animal Practice, one of its more family-friendly shows this fall.
