HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Robby Heil is the water boy for a high school football team in Michigan. He has down syndrome. His mom Debbie has terminal bone cancer, so the teams wanted to do something special. They suited Robby up in pads, and with just under 11 minutes remaining in the 7-7 tie game, they gave him the ball. Mom says she dropped to the ground, overcome with emotion.

Fans are voicing outrage over Disney's new Halloween costume from the movie "Moana." The costume is of the Hawaiian god Maui, played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. People are particularly annoyed by the use of brown skin.

Some call it creepy, others call it racist. But the tattoos on the costume have also offended people. Someone tweeted - "Some islander tattoos are very sacred, this costume is literally mocking our traditions."

Another wrote - "Dear @Disney this is cultural appropriation. & my culture is not a costume."

Congratulations to the "Hawaii Five-0" crew:  They have a celebration of sorts as Executive Producer Peter Lenkov tweeted a picture of the 150th episode cake. The crew is getting ready for another celebration; it's Sunset on the Beach this Friday night at the Kapahulu Groin. They will have the cast and crew on the red carpet, Darius Rucker will perform, and the world premiere ppisode of season 7 "Hawaii Five-0" will be on the big screen at sunset.

Jason Momoa posted a  picture with "Game of Thrones" co-star Kit Harrington. The Instagram caption said, "Congrats to my kit... super proud of him and all the cast and crew. Congrats Game of Thrones. You are the best. can't wait for the next season. Aloha j. Back to work."
