Nine Nobel Peace laureates, including retired South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu, on Monday called on television network NBC to cancel its “Stars Earn Stripes” reality show, labeling it a bid to “sanitize war by likening it to an athletic competition.”
Ding ding ding!!!!
Blatant military propaganda starring celebrities should be questioned and called out.

“Real war is down in the dirt deadly. People — military and civilians — die in ways that are anything but entertaining.”
