Topless Femen protestors storm the stage on Heidi Klum’s German model show

Published

Two bare-breasted female protesters burst on to the stage at the final of Germany’s Next Topmodel TV show, hosted by the German ex-supermodel Heidi Klum late Thursday.

As the finalists appeared with Klum, two Femen feminist supporters, one with “Heidi Horror Picture Show” written in English across her naked chest and stomach, stormed on stage, N24 rolling news channel showed Friday.

“Did I just see breasts in front of me, or did I dream it?” Klum, who turns 40 on Saturday and was clad in a cut-away bubblegum pink dress, said after the brief interruption.

Security personnel swiftly cleared the protesters out.

Based on America’s Next Top Model, the German version is broadcast weekly, following the ups and downs in the contest to pick a potential new model from among around 20 hopefuls.

But the show’s popularity has declined since its launch in Germany in 2006, and there has been growing criticism that it portrays an image of women based solely on appearance.

Published

Michael Bloomberg has been pummeled over the treatment of women at his media and data company. Yet that is not the only blemish on the employment record of Bloomberg L.P. The company also has a serious problem with wage theft.

Violation Tracker lists a total of $70 million in penalties paid by Bloomberg for wage and hour violations, putting it in 32nd place among large corporations. Yet many of the companies higher on the list – such as Walmart, FedEx, and United Parcel Service – employ far more people than the roughly 20,000 at Bloomberg.

On Tuesday, Brett Kelman of The Tennessean wrote about a spike in the uninsured rate in Tennessee — driven in part by 31,000 Christians in the state foregoing health insurance in favor of church-backed "sharing ministries."

These ministries are pitched as alternatives to medical coverage, but they are not health insurance at all — rather, they are better described as religious crowdfunding ventures where fellow congregants may cover your medical bills.
