Radical Hindus burned effigies of the 57-year-old Gere in India's entertainment hub of Mumbai and organised street rallies in New Delhi.

“What we thought was a very successful HIV/AIDS event has taken a sad turn,” he said.

The warrant for Gere and a summons for Shetty were issued in the Rajasthan state capital of Jaipur following a complaint by a lawyer who accused the actor of “an obscene act” which carries a penalty of three months imprisonment, a fine or both."

India has the largest number of HIV-AIDS cases in the world, with 5.7 million people infected, according to
UNAIDS

So the country with the most AIDS cases in the world, wants to arrest Gere for kissing someone on the cheeks in public.

Because that's obscene.

Priorities FTW.

Isn't this silly?

(Really? Was it any different that that incident at the Oscar's when Adrien Brody attacked Halle Berry? People in Hollywood are touchy–that's what they do.)

Poor Shilpa Shetty, the “Bollywood” actress, a warrent was also issued for her arrest and after her ‘96 obscenity charges (for showing her navel) she is the one I feel actually bad for is this situation. It doesn’t keep me up at night or anything. But, bless her heart…she did look uncomfortable when Gere was mackin' on her.

I saw Gere on The Daily Show and he was jovial about the whole situation. This should be a warnin' to businesspeople travelin' abroad…Check up on local customs (otherwise…some poor schmo businessman stumbles into “Woman's Town” and finds himself doin' dishes instead of makin' it to the big meeting concerning global expansion.)

Read the news article about Woman's Town here.

What a slut! If I'd known this, I wouldn't have voted for her brother on American Idol so much.


Also I saw a bollywood movie once. It was a remake of fight club. Comedy gold.

Every country has their “issues”, but what I don't understand is that lawyer filing the suit without the consent of the actress. Isn't that kind of important. Making sure that the so called victim actually, I don't know, feels like they were wronged?
Random Fact nerd.

Oh, she's in trouble too for not resisting, Squishy_Frog. Since it's an obscenity charge, I guess the victims in this case are supposed to be the people who saw the kiss. And THEY'RE certainly feeling wrong, apparently. Burning effigies of Gere and Shetty and all. o_O

Trivia!

In India, kissing in public is considered obscene.
Holding hands in public for a couple in some parts of India is also considered obscene.
Even after marriage, some traditional Indian couple never show affection for each other in front of their children.

Like he's actually going to go with it. What are they going to do, invade America to take him prisoner? They'll probably retreat when they see McDonald's.
i will also like to know you the more
