Petition to Channing Dungey, Bob Iger, ABC

To ABC: Air the 'Banned' Black-ish Anthem Episode

On February 27, 2018, critically acclaimed ABC show "Black-ish" was set to air an episode that covered many topics about the current state of America, including the rights of athletes to kneel during the performance of the national anthem during football games. One week before, however, ABC (& show creator Kenya Barris) suddenly decided not to air the episode, citing "creative differences". Out of the many topics that were to be discussed during that episode, it was the "anthem topic" that was pointed out on the ABC announcement. We are asking ABC to do the right thing and air that episode, titled "Please, Baby, Please". Specifically, we are asking ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey and parent company Disney's CEO Bob Iger to make this happen. We understand there may be a conflict of interest since ABC also owns ESPN, who pays $1.9 billon a year on TV rights to the NFL. However, just like you did with Roseanne, look past the money & do the right thing by showing the "banned" Black-ish episode. We applauded what you did by banning Roseanne, a high-rating show. We'll applaud you even more if you lifted the banned "Black-ish" Anthem episode. Since you and the ABC team may be afraid of the backlash, the purpose of this petition is to show how many of us actually support the showing of this "Black-ish" Anthem episode. Hopefully there would be a high number of signees. This will show that -- if you do get backlash -- there are many of us (actually, most of us) that support the airing of the episode...including many celebrities & influencers who asked that this episode get aired. Don't be like the NFL and appease the demands of individuals who don't understand why Kaepernick took a knee during the anthem. It's not a good look and you don't want that to be part of the legacy of this great show. To Channing Dungey & to Bob Iger: Do the right thing. Air the banned "Black-ish" Anthem episode.

Petition to Madame Tussauds

Jenni Rivera Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds

Us Jenni Rivera fans would like to see a Jenni Rivera Wax Figure. Jenni Rivera is truly inspiring because she broke barriers in becoming the First Female Mexican American Artist to sell out the Staples center and to sell out 2 back to back nights at the Nokia Theater which is now the Microsoft Theater. She also sold out the Kodak Theater, the Gibson Amphitheater and the Auditorio Nacional which only a few people in her genre have achieved. She has a star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars, and she is one of the best-selling Regional Mexican Artists of all time, having sold more than 15 million records worldwide. Jenni Rivera was known for always giving back to her community. She used her Love Foundation to help women and children that went through domestic violence, sexual, physical, or emotional abuse. In 2012, Rivera was honored at Children's Hospital Los Angeles with a spot on the "Wall of Fame" for her continued support and donations to the hospital. In 2001, Jenni Rivera had talked to her daughter Chiquis stating that she would like to convert her Corona house into a shelter for women who are single mothers, for children's, and for women who suffered from sexual abuse. And after her death, her wish came true. In May 2016, The Jenni Rivera Love Foundation, in partnership with New Life Beginnings, opened "Jenni's Refuge". A women and children's refuge center in Long Beach, California. The refuge center is dedicated to helping abused women and children that have gone through domestic violence, physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. These are some of the reasons why Jenni Rivera deserves to be immortalized in Wax and what a better place to have it at the Madame Tussaud's in Hollywood. She was proud of where she was from, a Long Beach Native, and a  Californian Girl. Playa Larga Baby..!! So please Madame Tussaud's Hollywood ( @tussaudsla ) Hear us out, let's make this happen, she deserves this #JenniRivera #JenniRiveraWaxFigure
