TV Jackpot: “Law & Order: SVU” Makes A Trayvon Martin/Paula Deen Episode

Whoa Nelly, we're not even sure how this is going to go down, but the baby geniuses behind "Law & Order: SVU" have gone and done it again. After their amazing "ripped from the headlines" Chris Brown/Rihanna episode, they've now announced they're going to do a show inspired by both the Trayvon Martin shooting and

Rooney Mara Disses “Law & Order: SVU”

"It was so awful. So stupid. Me and my boyfriend -- although I [didn't] look old enough to have a boyfriend -- went and beat up these fat people, and at the end of the show you find out that I used to be obese and I hate fat people. It's ridiculous. Who would ever…
