You guys remember Batkid, don't you? Sure you do, who could forget little Miles Scott, the adorable 5-year-old leukemia patient who got to be a superhero for a day back in November thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. People went nuts for Batkid, with tens of thousands who gathered to see him save San Francisco-turned-Gotham City and hundreds of thousands of tweets circulating about the event.
Well, it turns out that Batkid, whose leukemia is thankfully in remission, was scheduled to appear onstage during the Oscars on Sunday night. He and his family had traveled for the event, rehearsed his routine inside the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, and had Miles all prepped in a pint-sized tuxedo -- when his segment was abruptly canceled by the Academy. Worse, they gave no explanation to Miles or his family for cutting him from the show.
