    Nearly a decade after pioneering international television streaming in the U.S., DramaFever will be shutting down immediately according to parent company Warner Brothers. “Today, Warner Bros. Digital Networks will be closing its DramaFever OTT service due to business reasons and in light of the rapidly changing marketplace for K-drama content, a staple of the service’s programming,” the company said in an emailed statement after days of silence on DramaFever’s social media platforms. “Warner Bros. Digital Labs, which encompasses more than two-thirds of the DramaFever workforce, will continue operating, serving as the tech engine behind many of WBDN’s operations.”

    School calls the movie's cancellation a "teachable moment". Less than a week after former NFL star and University of Maryland alumnus Boomer Esiason threatened to cut off his support for the school over the cancelation of screenings of the film American Sniper on campus, the school confirmed a new screening of the movie has been scheduled. Boomer wasn’t the only one upset with the cancelation. University of Maryland’s president, Wallace Loh, talked about some of the backlash the school faced in a letter to students ... That cancellation drew controversy. “We were deluged by phone calls and messages from across...

  • ‘American Sniper’ derailed by Muslim complaints at University of Maryland

    The University of Maryland joins the University of Michigan in the ranks of educational institutions with an "American Sniper" controversy. Muslim student protests prompted the University of Maryland at College Park to announce the cancellation of the movie about deceased Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. "American Sniper only perpetuates the spread of Islamophobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason. This movie dehumanizes Muslim individuals, promotes the idea of senseless mass murder, and portrays negative and inaccurate stereotypes," the university's Muslim Students Association said in its petition, Fox News reported Thursday.

    After originally deciding to screen the movie, the University of Maryland has reversed course and instead has canceled an upcoming showing of American Sniper on campus. The school’s conservative group released this statement in response: The University of Maryland Student Entertainment Events (SEE) decided to screen American Sniper on May 6 and 7, 2015. After meeting with concerned student organizations, SEE has decided to ‘postpone’ the movie. If the University prevents a movie like this from being shown, it promotes intolerance and stifles dialogue and debate on the subject and goes directly against the atmosphere of diversity the University of...

    The University of Michigan isn't the only area university whose showing of the film "American Sniper" on Friday caused controversy. Four protesters were temporarily detained after disrupting an 8 p.m. showing of the film April 10 on the Eastern Michigan University campus, according to university officials. EMU spokesman Geoff Larcom said during the first of two planned showings at university's Student Center, protesters got on stage and disrupted the movie. The EMU Police Department received complaints for subjects causing a disturbance and refusing to leave at about 8:10 p.m. at the Student Center, according to their police log. About 40...
  • Liberal Activist Vandalizes Muslim’s Apartment to Claim College is Unsafe for Muslims

    Zeinab Khalil, a liberal Muslim activist who went to the University of Michigan, has complained that Michigan is an unsafe environment for Muslims. Her evidence? Supposed "oppression" of Muslims, such as showing a movie and the fact that a Muslim student's apartment was vandalized last December. The problem with that statement is that Khalil herself is the one who vandalized the apartment. The student who lived there, Omar Mahmood, has had enough of Khalil's hypocrisy, however, and has released irrefutable evidence that Khalil was behind the act. At the end of last year, Khalil and other Muslims pelted Mahmood's apartment...

    The perpetrator was a liberal activist and decorated campus Muslim leader who said American Sniper promoted violence.Is the University of Michigan a hostile place for Muslim students—or just a hostile place for freethinkers? Zeinab Khalil, a recent UM graduate, Muslim, and progressive activist who won numerous distinctions during her time on campus, including an award named for Martin Luther King, Jr., thinks it’s the former. A UM group’s decision to screen the film American Sniper offended the sensibilities of some Muslims, including Khalil, who claimed on Twitter that the campus “is already a hostile place for Arab/Muslim students.

    As a lifelong Michigan fan who grew up with Jim Harbaugh as his favorite Wolverine, I didnÂ’t think my man-crush on the Maize-and-BlueÂ’s new football coach could get any bigger than it already is. The guy hasnÂ’t even coached a game yet in Ann Arbor, but Captain America hosannas, like the ones he earned as quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, are already raining down on him after he beat the toughest opponent of them all this week. Political correctness. Faced with the douchetastic dumb-arsery of campus victimologists, who felt a showing of the movie American Sniper would be insensitive to...

    Political correctness is a disease. It’s a cancerous growth on the posterior of America that continues to grow. One of the prime examples of that is this week’s controversy surrounding the University of Michigan, and it’s screening of American Sniper. Long story short, American Sniper was going to be shown on campus, some Muslims at UofM complained, got a petition going and got the screening canceled. They claimed that the film was “racist” and that it would make students feel “unsafe”. Jeez. Then one girl, one brave girl, named Rachel Jankowski, got a counter-petition going to get the screening back...

    The University of Michigan canceled a scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” on Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film glorifies a “mass killer” and perpetuates anti-Muslim stereotypes. An online petition, titled a “collective letter from Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) and Muslim students on campus,” accused the school of “tolerating dangerous anti-Muslim and anti-MENA propaganda” by showing the Chris Kyle biopic, The College Fix reported. “The movie American Sniper not only tolerates but promotes anti-Muslim and anti-MENA rhetoric and sympathizes with a mass killer,” the letter reads. “Chris Kyle was a racist who took a...
