Bad News Bear and Lupus...

So I posted the following on my Twitter account...

ALRtweets: 1 of the kids N Bad News Bears is calld Lupus...inappropriate? funny? offensive? a combination? wht do U think...I am curious

I found the answers interesting. Here is a sampling of responses from Twitter and Facebook...

-That is so not funny or appropriate. If they had lupus, they would not joke about it.
-its combo of both but I'm not surprised because comedies satirically poke at every1 and everything...
-I say that ANYTHING that brings awareness to Lupus- GO FOR IT! lol There's not enough out there, despite us all trying hard to get it to be! I don't think there's anything wrong with something good coming of something bad

Not having lupus, I feel like it is hard for me to say what I may or may not find offensive. The conversation however is a good one.
