    The controversy centering on Teen Titans #1 (2014) was completely overblown.

    But who cares? You don't have to wear them. I might think it's silly to pay for beat up jeans, but it's not my money.

    Also, fashion has always been dumb.

But i also think this goes as far back as the 00's, and more often than not has to do with not pissing off powerful white people in the industry, and their white audience..A complete 180 from the days of 2pac, Geto Boys, Ice-T, Public Enemy, Ice Cube etc.
    A lot of rappers today are just flat out shallow. Even stuff that's party music is more about free ads for designer goods than getting people moving on the dance floor.

    There is no such thing as a "Psychic"... no one can see your future... and no one can talk to your dead relatives ( there is no such thing as ghosts either).... these are con artists who steal from desperate, emotionally vulnerable people

    That is not a controversial opinion. Just reality.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I think rappers are generally cowards now, but to be fair to them i do believe they're also being pushed into a "morton's fork" type of situation. Reminds me of the backlash Cam Newton got over the Colin Kaepernick/BLM situation where he felt trapped in reards to what he could,. or could not say without pissing someone off and damaging his brand. I feel that a lot of today's rappers are in the same quagmire. Nineties rappers didn't give a fuck lol

    If I recall correctly, the controversy had more than a little to do with the 2014 CBR reboot. I'm not familiar with the exact circumstances, but the incident led to the founder, Jonah Weiland locking down the site, eliminating every forum members logins and overhauling the rules of conduct as well as completely eliminating some of the sub forums.

    If any of the mods or better informed members want to shed some light on the story, I'd be interested.

    Careful what you wish for, you may find you're not as indispensable as you think.

    Yeah, ripped jeans are from my childhood too, so I don't have an issue with them.

    If by "sagging" you mean trousers falling down so your underwear is on display, then yeah, that one looks ridiculous.

    How come the Electoral College is a controversial opinion?

    People are still debating about electoral college versus national popular vote since the 2016 Elections. Some liberals such as Michael Moore called the electoral college "archaic" and obsolete. They are even calling for an end to the electoral college

    Oh, okay then. I don't know why I thought it was published by DC.
