"Dwight Howard held an actual opinion on something yesterday! It took less than an hour for him to apologize for it.

The Rockets center's desire to please everyone inadvertently made him hold a stance on an issue for a brief moment. Someone on Twitter told him about the violence in Gaza and Howard asked how he could help."

Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur) and Ana Kasparian (http://www.twitter.com/anakasparian) of The Young Turks break down what happens when celebrities tweet about international politics. Should celebrities keep their opinions to themselves or is the public wrong for getting upset? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

**********

The Largest Online News Show in the World. Hosted by Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian. LIVE STREAMING weekdays 6-8pm ET.

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. Young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations. (American Heritage Dictionary)

The Young Turks (Winner - Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don't patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
