eek! muslim reporters are calling me!

after publishing a provocative and i think tasteless 9/11 coloring book, really big coloring books, inc. has called the FBI. why did they call? wayne bell, the publisher, explains:
“These are people from Al-Jazeera that have called in here numerous times, people from Iranian TV, people from Palestinian Hamas TV,” Bell said, “A lot of people from the Islamic community have called in here and said increasingly negative things prior to the book being made and then after we made the book too, about the book itself.”
OMG! reporters from the mooooslim world are asking me questions about my book and then saying mean stuff about it!!!! call the feds!

okay, so maybe i am being unfair. i mean, maybe those reporters and other people "from the islamic community" threatened bell or the publishing house. except, apparently not:
When asked about whether he has had any threats because of the book, Bell stopped short of saying he had.
(via memeorandum)
