Forget Occupy Wall Street, there’s a new protest in town. Ryan Gosling fans are protesting People Magazine’s choice to name Bradley Cooper as 2011’s Sexiest Man Alive. This Youtube video shows the group in front of People headquarters voicing its opinion.
“Bradley Cooper is just fine but Ryan Gosling is divine.”
The BuzzFeed organized the movement OccupyPeople and also created a petition that urges the magazine to admit it was wrong. Here’s a look from Change****...
“We believe People Magazine made a huge mistake by choosing Bradley Cooper as the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive. 2011 was clearly the year of Ryan Gosling and we demand that People Magazine give Ryan his own magazine cover. Together, we can right this wrong.”
So far more than 1800 people have signed the petition and bloggers agree. A writer for the Washington Post says...
“... this is clearly Gosling’s year... The guy starred in three great films in 2011, is an Oscar contender (yet again!), broke up a street fight, felt embarrassed about it, brought his dog on national TV and somehow managed to stay completely likable.”
But -- what’s done is done. A blogger for Zap2it writes...
“There's no reason to rail against the actual title-holder, Bradley Cooper... we're forgetting one important fact: Bradley Cooper is damn sexy... Let him have it.”
Anchors on KABB are shocked – Not because Gosling wasn’t picked, but because there are more important things.
“I mean come on ladies you know we’ve got big problems in the world, this is supposed to be fun who cares?”
And anchors for the DailyBuzz go further – What does this say about the Occupy Wall Street protest?
“Seriously? Come on y’all let it go. Next year maybe.
When you see people who have taken the time to protest the sexiest man alive, doesn’t that seem to discount the occupy protesters?
A little bit.
Saying you know, things are so bad in this country?
People Magazine stands by its decision.
