Best Thing on the Internet Today: Rob Lowe vs. Winnipeg vs. John Stamos vs. Unionville
Really, what Lowe should have done was take a lesson from the ageless John Stamos, and embrace the city of which he was filming in, publicly and otherwise

Boo, hiss. Hollywood heartthrob Rob Lowe called Winnipeg a “hellhole” on Twitter Tuesday night, unleashing a fury of angry responses from across the country. 

The Brat Packer-come-Parks and Recreation star, in town to shoot a made-for-TV movie about Casey Anthony, took to Twitter to complain about an interrupted showing of the NBA Finals. Using the hashtag “#Trappedinahellhole,” Lowe wrote:
 
However, the municipal election update Lowe was complaining about was likely from watching the NBA playoff game on an American affiliate in Grand Forks, N.D., since there were no municipal elections in Manitoba on Tuesday.
 
Winnipeg residents fired back at Lowe, calling him a jerk, schmuck, and much more:
 

By Wednesday morning, Lowe changed his tune, tweeting positive messages about the city, and blaming the sports bar for the inflammatory hashtag. But, the damage had already been done.

Really, what Lowe should have done was take a lesson from the ageless John Stamos, and embrace the city of which he was filming in, publicly and otherwise.

With that, here are some photos of a happy-looking Uncle Jesse shooting a television movie in Unionville, Ont. last summer.
