A day without Megan Fox? Websites for men say yes
Megan Fox this year has made the news every time she walked down the red carpet, offered a teasing sound bite, or did just about anything on a public street or right-of-way. The sex symbol who starred in “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” the year’s biggest movie so far, seemingly can do no wrong when it comes to getting attention.
But that’s just the problem. Reacting to the starlet’s omnipresence in the world of entertainment news, several men’s websites are banning Fox for a day. They say they have nothing against the Tennessee-born beauty, but they are still banning her from their sites on August 4.
“Enough is enough already!” men’s website Double Viking said on its website. “Yes, Megan Fox is banging. Yes Megan Fox is delicious. Yes Megan Fox farts rainbows. But seriously, enough is enough!”
As James Bassil, editor-in-chief of AskMen.com told the New York Daily News, “You can have too much of a good thing.”
“We’re joining in the media blackout and giving our readers a one-day reprieve from the woman we’ve been drowning in all summer,” Bassil said.
In her upcoming movie, “Jennifer’s Body,” Fox portrays a young woman who becomes possessed by a demon and begins to feed off the boys in her high-school, and in recent in recent days she has won headlines for saying she would like to “eat” Robert Pattinson, the star of “Twilight,” and Disney product Zac Efron.
So we wonder, is a self-described man eater afraid of a one-day ban from some men’s websites? Probably not.
