â€œâ€¦bullyâ€™s suck no matter what country you are fromâ€¦â€ Well, okay. If that was the message, thatâ€™s okay. But those bullies had American flag arm bands â€” anonymity was not the intention there. Avatar was more subtle! Also, I bet the kids on the set were more open about asking â€œWhatâ€™s the message here?â€ than most journalists who talk to M.I.A. (me included). But I also doubt her publicist was there keeping an eye on things.
