UK SUN slammed by critics for demon mark story

The UK SUN reported a child had a sign of the devil on his chest.. The HORROR REPORT somewhat scoffed at the story..

But now the UK SUN is being slammed for slashing the child on the front page of the paper with the sensational headline that he has the mark of the beast on his chest..

This is how the UK GUARDIAN reported the incident:
The Sun is facing a barrage of criticism after featuring a half-naked four-year-old boy with a "mark of the devil" on his chest on its front page.



The tabloid's "exclusive" story featured unpixellated images of the child and his mother.



The paper was accused of starting a witch-hunt and endangering the child after publishing the story with the headline: "BOY, 4, HAS MARK OF DEVIL."



The child's mother is quoted saying: "Just looking at it made me shake, thinking something unnatural had visited my boy. Something or someone made the sign on him but we just can't explain how."



The story goes on to explain that the mark appeared on 23 May and had gone by 16 June. The story does not state if the child's parents were paid for the story.

Critics have slammed the paper, along with Rupert Murdoch...

My first inclination when I saw the 'mark' was that it was placed on the child by someone.. was it abuse.. was it something more than a just lucky mark on the right place?

But the real problem may be that the child's face has been splashed around the world. The HORROR REPORT sarcastically called the UK SUN 'reliable' .. reliable sources may not be found.

Unless Rupert hacked your phoned.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…
