The film, Chapter 23, stars Jared Leto (and about an extra 100 lbs. of fat) as Mark David Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon outside his Upper West Side home in 1980. Some fans of the late singer complained that the film could possibly glorify the killer, who remains in a psychiatric institution. Over 2,000 have signed a boycott petition, according to Entertainment Weekly. YokoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s response: Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s very sweet of them. John would have thought so too.Ã¢â‚¬?
The famed widow (and onetime Scarsdale resident) also told the magazine what she thought Lennon would be up to, were he still alive:
<blockquote><div>He would be totally into the Internet, giving him a chance to do anything and being able to communicate with the whole world at the same time. He would have loved it.</div></blockquote>
