Watch: Samuel L. Jackson Rips Into A News Reporter Who Confused Him For Laurence Fisburne

“There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial!”
“We don’t all look alike!”

Ugh. So this morning I was watching live the KTLA Morning News broadcast as I do every morning while I work and I was able to watch entertainment reporter Sam Rubin‘s live interview with Samuel L. Jackson as he promoted his new movie RoboCop. From the start, the interview didn’t really get off on the right foot and when Rubin asked Samuel about his Super Bowl commercial, confusing Jackson with Laurence Fishburne who featured in a KIA commercial, Samuel went OFF on Rubin and ripped him a well deserved new one. Now, I have been watching KTLA every morning for pretty much the entire time I’ve been living in LA (almost 8 years), so I’m very familiar with Sam Rubin‘s reporting. I will say, honestly, that he does get things wrong sometimes … he’ll report something that is wrong or a little wrong but it’s not usually a big deal (IMHO). We all make mistakes, I make mistakes like that all the time. I sometimes confuse actors for other actors unintentionally. But this glaring mistake just came at the wrong time, obvs for Samuel L. who decided that he had had enough. Sam Rubin used to go out of his way to make fun of Britney Spears, saying really nasty things about her in his position as a reporter on a local news station — and that has always pissed me off. I tried to call him out on Twitter every time he did something like that and to his credit, he has stopped picking on Britney (he even mentioned on air that I kept calling him out on Twitter). While Sam Rubin isn’t my fave reporter (which is a shame cuz I LOVE KTLA), I couldn’t help but cringe for him the entire time Samuel L. was eviscerating him on live TV. I’m not at all surprised that this video has gone viral. It’s painful to watch but considering how fed up Jackson is at being confused for other Black actors, I guess it was finally time for him to do something about it.

The Celebrity Boxing Match Between George Zimmerman & DMX Has Been Called Off

“This was the wrong person to put in the ring"

Remember earlier this week when we learned that rapper DMX had signed on to fight George Zimmerman in that terribly named Celebrity Boxing Match? Welp, it ain’t gonna happen. The fight promoter announced the news on Twitter today that he has decided to call the whole thing off. It sounds like the promoter is having second thoughts about putting on an event where Zimmerman is referred to as a “celebrity” so he has decided to just cancel the whole thing altogether. Click below to read what the promoter had to say about the fight cancellation. More »

Woody Allen Responds To Dylan Farrow’s Sex Abuse Allegations With An Open Letter Of His Own

"Of course, I did not molest Dylan."

Just one day short of a week since Dylan Farrow published an open letter in the New York Times wherein she described in some detail the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her father Woody Allen, Allen has released an open letter of his own in response to the allegations also published in the NY Times. Earlier in the week, we heard from Woody Allen‘s lawyer and publicist who spoke out in his defense as well as his son Moses Farrow who also spoke out in his defense. At last, we hear from Allen himself … in his own words. Presented below is the full text of Woody Allen‘s open letter response to Dylan‘s letter. As you can read for yourselves, Allen takes great pains to defend himself from the allegations that he sexually abused his daughter and makes clear that this is the last time he will address this matter.

The LA Times Rejected Dylan Farrow’s Letter, The New York Times May Publish Woody Allen’s Response Letter

“We got it, we considered it, we ultimately decided not to use it”

A week ago tomorrow, Dylan Farrow published an open letter in the New York Times where she described in some detail the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her father Woody Allen. Today we learn that the LA Times newspaper was offered the letter first for publication but they decided NOT to publish the letter in their paper. No real explanation has been given as to why Farrow‘s letter was rejected but considering the firestorm of attention it generated, it seems like a bad move on their part to choose not to publish the letter. Additionally we learn today that the New York Times is considering publishing an open letter response to Farrow‘s letter written by Woody Allen himself. The NYT says it has been approached by Allen and they are seriously considering publishing his letter. More »

"Of course Woody did not molest my sister"

Earlier today we read the tweet that Mia Farrow posted on her Twitter profile in the wake of the release of daughter Dylan Farrow‘s open letter publicly accusing her father Woody Allen of sexual abuse. Right now we learn that Dylan‘s brother Moses Farrow has come out in support of Woody that he never molested Dylan. In a new interview with People magazine, Moses explains that mother Mia tried to convince her children to hate Woody Allen and concocted the abuse allegation as payback for Allen‘s relationship with her daughter Soon-Yi. As expected, this family drama is getting more complicated as members of this family begin to take sides and speak out publicly about their positions.

George Zimmerman Agrees To Fight In A Celebrity Boxing Match, Game Volunteers To Beat Him Down

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day

The year’s just getting started and we’ve already got a That-Ish-Cray story that’ll definitely go down infamy. So, many of you may not know this, but I am a little bit obsessed with Game. I don’t talk about him too often on the blog, but OMG I used to have that Old English track on repeat! I also got into his reality show for a while (Marrying The Game), which is right around the time I started crushin’ on him more than is probably appropriate. Game was one of many celebrities to speak out against the Zimmerman acquittal, which is probably why he’s volunteered to beat the shizz out of Trayvon Martin‘s murderer. Folks, I want to laugh, but I can’t even deal… Click inside for more.

Sharon Osbourne Got Into A HUGE Fight With Jonah Hill’s Brother At The Pre-Grammy Gala Last Night

Water was thrown, Shizz got Real

Earlier today we learned that a LOT of music heavy-hitters either performed or attended Clive Davis‘s annual Pre-Grammy Gala here in LA last night … and right now we learn that last night’s festivities were NOT without a huge bit of drama. For some unknown reason, Sharon Osbourne got into a HUGE fight with Jonah Hill‘s brother Jordan Feldstein during the dinner portion of the gala last night and things got so explosive that Sharon started throwing food and water (and whatever else was within reach) at Feldstein, causing him to run away from the table (as you may know, Jonah Hill was bizzy in NYC last night hosting Saturday Night Live, so he missed the action here in LA). I mean, it’s no secret that Sharon Osbourne has a bad temper but that she would start throwing shizz at someone at the dinner table at such a huge event is kinda crazy … no? Click below and see photos of Sharon actually throwing water on Jonah‘s brother. More »

Watch: Shia LaBeouf Headbutts A Guy In A Drunken Bar Fight

Then Apologizes for It

Shia LaBeouf appears to be on a campaign to be the douchiest guy on the planet these days judging by the way he is acting out in every way possible. In recent weeks, Shia has been accused of getting caught in the act of plagiarism and not really caring about it … to the point where he as threatened to quit show business (sound familiar?). After a week or so of staying out of trouble, Shia showed up in a London pub causing a bit of a ruckus by headbutting a fellow bar patron with his own head. Almost immediately after, Shia drunkenly apologized for his actions … and naturally, all of it was caught on camera. Watch below, won’t you? More »
