Make-A-Wish — Yes, Batkid’s in Remission … But HE STILL HAS CANCER

Exclusive 1118_batkid_maw_gettyThe Make-a-Wish Foundation has a message for the cold-hearted jerks who complained Batkid didn”t deserve his bat-wish because he”s in remission — HOW DARE YOU!!

If you haven”t heard, Make-a-Wish really outdid itself — turning San Francisco into Gotham City for 5-year-old cancer patient Miles Scott, who wanted to be Batman for a day.

Miles has been battling lymphoblastic leukemia since he was 20 months old, but some (heinous) people on the Internet have had the audacity to say he didn”t deserve his wish because he”s currently in remission.

Make-a-Wish rep Josh deBerge says that”s just wrong, telling us … “We would never penalize a child for getting better.”

$(function() $(“#poll-2716-7601e9fb67df0a6bdd87d5b25d57cb83 div form ul li”) .children() .not($(“div.styledRadio”)) .filter(“input:radio”) .screwDefaultButtons( checked: “url(”, unchecked: “url(”, width: 20, height: 20, pollid: “2716-7601e9fb67df0a6bdd87d5b25d57cb83”, ); });

And Josh says that”s all that matters.

Suck it, haters.
