Former G4 geek vixen and current Daily Show correspondent Olivia Munn (LAist Interview) is no fan of Ringling Brothers, which is in town this week. She even got nude for a billboard earlier this year to bring attention to the circus' apparent abuse of animals. Now that they're at the Staples Center, she's organizing a protest. "BOYCOTT Ringling Bros tonight at 630pm with me at Staples Center. If u have the time, it would be great to have you with me," she tweeted this afternoon. She also linked to a website called Ringling Bros. Beats Animals: The Saddest Show on Earth.
