Tropic Thunder Premiere Picketed

While TomKat was smiling and posing, Jack Black was shining, and Robert Downey Jr. was sporting new facial hair at the Tropic Thunder premiere in Los Angeles last night, angry groups representing the intellectually challenged picketed the surrounding area. Protestors from the Special Olympics and other groups representing the disabled handed out flyers with the headline “Ban the Movie, Ban the Word” across the top, calling for people to boycott Tropic Thunder, which contains a vignette called Simple Jack … Once Upon A Time There Was A Retard. Scandalist picked up one of the flyers while attending the premiere last night. Read the entire message after the jump.
