all american muslim lowes russel simmonsHip-hop mogul and former reality star Russell Simmons slammed Lowe's hardware store after it pulled its ads from TLC's new series 'All American Muslim,' exclusively reports Entertainment Weekly.

"This can't happen in America ... [Lowe's] needs to fix this immediately," Simmons said. "They can't get away with that, it's ridiculous. There are American principals at stake here. I can't imagine the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, the National Urban League, or any organization that fights for their own rights will allow this to happen to any other group because they know they're next."

Simmons isn't the only one upset by the homebuilding store's decision. According to the Los Angeles Times, California state senator Ted Lieu called on Lowe's to apologize for pulling its advertising from the TV show, which follows the lives of five Muslim American families from the Dearborn, Michigan area, home to one of the most active Muslim communities in the country.

sabrina the teenage witch funny or die melissa joan hartFile this under: the greatest thing you'll see all day. Eight years after Melissa Joan Hart said goodbye to Sabrina Spellman and her witchy ways, the former 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' star spoofed her popular spellbinding role in a new video for Funny Or Die -- starring her former co-star, Salem the cat.

In the hilarious clip, the actress reunites with Salem (voiced by Nick Bakay) for lunch to catch up. But, then Salem -- always the bad influence -- convinces Hart to embrace her dormant inner-Sabrina and perform a little magic ... and that when Melissa loses it. She morphs into a power-hungry witch, attacking the restaurant's guests with "magic!"

And when a little boy tries to combat Melissa's witchy ways with the 'Harry Potter' defense spell, "Expelliarmus," the actress disarms him with her own clever counter-attack.
