    you people talking about how bad it is to stick up a middle finger need help. it’s a finger. it only has as much power as you allow it. just like curse words, slurs, racial bigotry… it’s all made up by us. it only has power if you allow it to. this case especially is for a good cause and at first i was like… wow thats abrupt. but honestly people, in today’s world things need to be abrupt for idiots to pay attention. and this is a matter worth paying attention to. so get over it. and support the cause.

    Oh please. What is so bad about his finger?
    He’s right. So many people die every year of cancer, so please.
    It’s nice, that he’s fighting against cancer.

    “Getting really sick of this” has an interesting comment.
    But your ‘power of intellect’ leaves out a crucial feature…

    The same has been said about the N word, referring to the ‘power you give it.’ Most things (not all, but most) that need context to justify… and this is a good rule of thumb…usually can be pulled out of context and found offensive…

    Frankly, I’d prefer to think that we don’t have to always take a “shock and awe” approach to messages. If we’re using that philosophy let’s put Ann Coulter and Howard Stern in charge of all PSAs.

    This is an awesome idea. I bet it makes them laugh and it’s always good to see them fighting.

    Come on guys there doing this to get people’s attention. I mean if a house if on fire. And you go up to someone and say “Hey dude that house is o fire.” That’s not really gonna do anything. But if you stand in the middle of the street and scream “FIRE!!!!!!!” People are gonna look. Same thing if you just walk by people and go “Support Cancer” Some people might be like “Okay Sure” but most people will probably just nod their head. But if you stand there and hold up the finger people are come over and look at you ad when you have their attention, you can explain to them that “Giving Cancer the bird” isn’t about being disrespectful it’s about empowering people and essentially saying “I’m fighting Cancer and I’m gonna kick it’s butt.” And if people don’t want to take part in it because of this seemingly derogatory gesture then what does it say about our society when someone holding up the middle finger is more important that somebody dying from Cancer?

    @ilovemusic well to be fair don’t you think cancer’s just a tad disrespectful?!!! Exactly.

    Yeah, of course I do, but I just don’t think sticking up the middle finger is right. Just my opinion.

  • Liz

    I agree with you. I get that its supposed to be a more “fun” way to say “Go away, we can stand up against you” to cancer, but I can only imagine how young some of the patients with cancer that this is suposed to be reching are, and I don’t think they need “birds” to help make it strong.
    Just put Zac in there-90% of the <18 age group will already be enticed

  • LoveHate

    Why must people stick up the middle finger? It’s so disrespectful :|

    It’s not being disrespectful, they are just sticking their middle finger up at Cancer. Is that wrong?

    Are you guys nuns or something? I mean everyone’s entitled to their opinion but it’s just meant to be a fun way to get people younger people involved in the fight against cancer.

    Besides its a finger. It’s not like they whipped their genitals out or something hahahaha. How offensive can it be?

  • BUBLE.

    FFFFUU cancer.

  • Mareike

    I LOVE him <3

  • loser

    really? do you realize why they are doing it? it’s not disrespectful when you are essentially saying “FUCK YOU CANCER, I WILL BEAT YOU AND I WILL WIN”

    you are an inconsiderate selfish moron. think about what you say in regards to people’s ‘general idiocy’ as it applies to the cause before you make assumptions.

    lol @ all the disney teenies getting upset.

    sure there’s a better way to do it. But, he’s there helping the cause.
    Was it even his idea?
    was he like, “hey guys, I have an idea, we should all just stick our middle fingers and say ‘fuuuuuu cancer'”.

    SERIOUSLY? -.-

  • Robert Little

  • KeepCalmAndCarryOn

    Guys. Zac Efron is no longer considered a Disney role-model. He is no longer working with the Disney Channel. So therefore, it is children’s parent’s fault for allowing Zac Efron to be a “role-model” in kids’ lives. Personally, I think celebrities should be able to do what they want, good example or not. They have lives, too. It’s not their job to be a good example for you’re children, it’s the PARENTS job to do so. A celebrities job is to entertain. Take Miley Cyrus for example. I <3 her. She’s not a great example for kids. Get over it.

  • KeepCalmAndCarryOn

    I don’t get the point of this. There are a ton of ways to help, but what does “Giving cancer the bird” do?

    I love Zac but they could’ve went about this a different way I think…
