Culture, World: Iran: Mickey Rourke offends us. Apologize. Now.

  • The country wants an apology from Hollywood. The movies “300” and “The Wrestler,” specifically, greatly ticked off the country – “300” for its depiction of Persians and “The Wrestler” for a scene where Rourke rips up an Iranian flag while fighting a Arab stereotype. Personally, we want an apology from the makers of “300” for inflicting the “We Are Sparta” internet meme onto the world. It’s annoying. Apologize. Now. source
