    Good catch, I didn’t notice the “Shrek is love” poster. That’s one resilient meme. Though I wonder if they’ll change it to “Dory is Love, Dory is Life” now.

    CNN compounded the controversy by putting a link to their story on their front page

    wherein they used a fanart image instead of official clipart from Hasbro. I wondered if CNN could get in trouble for using a fanart apparently without the artist’s permission.
