Orphans Not Actually Sick, Twisted And Murderous, Like In “Orphan”

Breaking: orphaned children are not actually hellbent on killing their adoptive families, like Esther, the 9-year-old in the horror flick, “Orphan.”

Adoption and foster child advocates aren’t happy about how the girl is portrayed in the scary movie, and some have even started a Facebook group called “I Am Boycotting Warner Bros.’s ‘Orphan’ Movie.” Over one hundred thousand kids are in the foster care system and advocates are worried the Peter Sarsgaard/Vera Farmiga movie will reinforce negative stereotypes about the kids being problem children.

Fair enough point. While we haven’t seen the movie yet, we’re pretty sure, though, that most would-be adoptive parents are smart enough to realize their new little bundle of joy won’t be an actual demon (or whatever Esther’s problem turns out to be).

Next up, zombie advocates protest against the zombie rape scenes in Deadgirl. [NY Daily News]
