Not safe for prudes and busybodies – like this guy) the two companies have been scrambling to distance themselves from the resulting media blow-out. Smashbox’s representatives say that the company is pulling out, claiming that they didn’t know about the event’s controversial theme. True Religion has pulled out as well.

At the time of this writing, Flaunt is going forward with their party, but a statement given to website Buzzfeed hints that might be considering some changes to the event:

R2-D2′s Secret Message For The Jedi (Video)

R2-D2Princess Leia: General Kenobi. Years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to convey my father's request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack, and I'm afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed.

Certainly Christwire is pulling no punches with this “report”. (Did they have Jack Chick ghost-write this article? : ) If you’ve attended (or not) free feel to comment.

Coachella is a concert event for neo hippies, naked beer drinkers and drug addicts. Each year the event grows in numbers and so do its cases of rape, murder and cases of teenage runways. No were else are so many drugs taken, orgies performed and victimaztion of America’s young daughters.
