Splattergate - the Muslim version

And only now do we learn from The Observer that the charities that backed the film were "absolutely appalled" when they saw the director's four-minute short, "which was withdrawn from circulation amid a storm of protest."

The Guardian, however, which premiered the film, merely says: "The film may have been somewhat tasteless, but it was an imaginative attempt to challenge public apathy over climate change, and, highly unusually for attempts to communicate about this subject, funny too."

The paper goes on to say that it "warned users of its site that the film contained footage that could cause offence, and continues to link to another version of the film posted on YouTube."

So that's it, is it? Everything is OK? Well, Dellers doesn't think so.
