Controversial talk show queen Rosie O’Donnell has incurred a strong reaction from her own fans after posting a photo of her daughter in a bullet sash on her personal Web site.
Rosie.com showed the photo of her young daughter Vivian. Immediately, fans began sending the star their comments, expressing outrage over the picture.
“Ro, I agree with u (sic) on mostly everything, but somehow I found the picture of Vivi disturbing. I don’t’ even let my children play with anything similar to that,” wrote Karla.
“What’s with the new pic? It’s rather disturbing,” posted Kitty.
Rather than lead off the written section of her Web site with her own words or a video log as is common to the star, O’Donnell, a staunch Iraq war protestor, posted such comments front and center. Though there was plenty of shock over Rosie’s move, a number of posters supported posting the image for drawing attention to the war in Iraq.
“My god ... that picture. I can’t stop crying. This war is such bullish--,” wrote Jessie.
“Oh wow,” began Jessika. “Vivi looks beautiful! The fact that u (sic) let her explore her imagination like that shows what a good mom u.r. (sic). In some countries though, they are training terrorists that young, how sad is that.”
Others however, just remained confused over Rosie’s unexplained message.
“Help me out here ... why is that child in the header pic (your child I believe) wearing a bullet belt around her? Is there a politic statement our (sic) trying to make,” El Hollow wrote.
