ALS Advocacy

ALS Advocacy
Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

And Herein Lies The Problem, Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg

A tweet just came through from some folks at USA Today @kimpainter @lifelinelive that points out the reason why ALS advocates are outraged with your ALS reference in the new movie Ted .

Here is the problem --

Go ahead and click on that link.  Sure looks like a line from the movie caught on.

Perhaps it's time for you to meet some people with ALS so that you can understand why seeing a list of flippant tweets like that is so wrong.

  1. This unbelievable, how could you think it would not offend somebody. I lost all respect I had for Mark and what little I had left for Mr. Seth. I lost a cousin to ALS and don't remember anything funny about it. Wally is in Heaven and he's not happy right now! Shula be ashamed and a donation is a good way to start,,,,million minimum! Bastards will feel dif when hey have a family member stricken w a terrible disease. I pray for you , you need it!
