Default Heather Mills Teased!

Radio Station Pulls Trailer Making Fun Of Heather Mills

A radio station has scrapped a trailer making fun of Paul McCartney's fiancee
Heather Mills. Presenter Terry Christian has been accused of offending people
with disabilities in the plug for his Century FM show. Miss Mills had her leg
amputated after being involved in a road accident. Amputee Sam Gallop,
trustee and former chairman of the Limbless Association, told the Manchester
Evening News: "Would anyone make a joke about a two-year-old child who has
just had an amputation? You certainly should not make a living out of it. "We
are in the business of helping people, not making jokes about them. My feet
were burned off. I don't find it funny." Stephanie Barker, of Century FM,
said: "We've listened to the tape and can comment that while Terry would
never knowingly cause offence to anyone, he has a very tongue-in-cheek manner
and on this occasion, it appears that this comment has caused offence. "We,
of course, take all complaints extremely seriously and as a result, this
promotional trail has now been removed."

I've heard alot of nasty comments about her missing leg on the radio that I will not repeat. These people should get a life.
You all know how cruel people can be and Heather just has something they can easily pick on. They're just a bunch of bullies who aren't fit to wipe her boots.
Hey, wait a minute! Did I just stick up for the woman who's marrying MY Paul? I must be getting old.

Mean spirited comments and cruel cracks and jokes certainly do not reflect well on whoever is doing this. Snide comments in general don't sit well with most folks. I think what that radio station did was disgusting and reprehensible. There was just no need for that at all. No need.

Don't waste your time in this one.

Remember:
"And I will dance to a runcible tune
With the queen of my heart"
(Paul to Heather)

That's all that matters.

::raises an eyebrow:: wots wrong with the old one? I really don't think paul is just focused on her legs...but then again he is a man, and most men think with their LOWER Antenna but still, i'm meaning I think its not all very focused on her "disability" shes beautiful just the way she is (believe me it took me a long time to say that, I didnt trust her at first but now...I do}

To quote Paul McCartney, "I've Had Enough!"

I find the rash of cruel comments aimed at and about Heather sick and completely uncalled for. I think everybody here has heard crass fools like those shock jocks make these and other inappropriate comments.

Rather than fan their flames of ignorance, we'll just gently put them out right here and right now.
