America Frowns Upon and Censors Elton John's Family Photo

Us Weekly published a picture of Elton John and his family on their cover, and America wasn't having any of it, according to Spinner.

Some states have been shielding the cover of that issue similarly to what is done with pornographic magazines as a result of a slew of customer complaints. The photo simply featured John, his life partner David, and thier new son Zachary.

Elton John has yet to speak out about the issue in response to America's disgusting level of intolerance. Hopefully this country will get its shit together and remember to treat others the way they would like to be treated.
