Bill O’Reilly released a statement about his release, just hours after he met with The Pope, from Fox News, and it is pompous as him.
Over the past 20 years at Fox News I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television. It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today.
I will always look back on my time with Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel.
“Unfounded claims”? Let’s be honest, a company does not pay a settlement of millions of dollars if their employee is innocent.
Maybe Billy Bush, Donald Trump and him can all a show together and call it Dicks aRe Us.
If you missed the Critics Choice Awards yesterday, then you missed some guy on a show no one has heard of do something that has been done before and done much better. Keith Stanfield from Atlanta, the FX “comedy” not the city, ran up to the stage to accept the award for Best Comedy. Only problem was the real winner was HBO’s Silicone Valley. The winning sitcom’s EP Tom Lassally didn’t know what to do until after that guy finished his unsuccessful attempt to be funny. When Lassally finally got the mic, he said, “Wow. No idea who that was.” Neither did anyone else and he will be forgotten as the show he is on. Which is as funny as that guy’s attempt to be funny.
OK, I am the type of person who doesn’t see people’s skin color. So when there was all this controversy over the Cheerios ad with an interracial child, I didn’t know there was a problem until I found out why a bunch of idiots were upset over it.
But, this ad for Qiaobi Detergent in China is blatantly racist. A Chinese woman is doing laundry when an African-American man covered in paint enters the room, she signals him over and then he tries to kiss her. Instead of putting her tongue in his mouth, she puts a pod in there and forces him into the washer. I was expecting him to come out dressed in a tux holding a dozens roses to give to her and I was horribly mistaken. Instead a Chinese man comes holding the pod.
Seriously? OMG! WTF? I am speechless because that is the most racist thing I have seen. How could anyone in their right mind approve that ad. Then you have to think that several people approved it. What the f*ck is wrong with people? That commercial needs to be burned and all the people responsible for it should never be allowed to work in any form of advertising again. Unless it is working on a street corner spinning a sign.
What do you think of this atrocious ad?
Ariana Grande’s publicist wrote an apology for her licking a donut and saying that she hates America, and no one bought it. So she turned on her computer cam and recorded her own apology. I think she thinks that if you say I’m sorry enough that you will believe she is truly sorry and it’ll save her career. I will do what she did on those donuts and spit on it.
And I am sick of everyone saying she is a kid, just because she looks like one. She is 22 years old. That means she is old enough to drive, vote, serve in the military and drink. She is responsible for her actions. What she did in the donut store is something an early teen would do, and not someone in their early 20s.
What do you think of her apology? Do you think it saved her career?
Smash Mouth was playing the Taste of Fort Collins festival over the weekend and someone threw some bread at the band. The lead singer Steve Harwell didn’t like it, so he let them know. He went off on a four letter word rant, telling the audience to throw something at him; so that he could find them and kick their a$$. He was daring them so much, I am surprised no one did it just to shut him up. I know I wanted to throw something at him. I am not alone because Mandah Crouch, who posted the video, said this on YouTube, “What a classless punk and HASBEEN this guy is. Yesterday while I was at taste there were tons of kids there! This is a family event. He called the crowd p*****? Hardly. Our town has heart. I’d like to personally never invite this man back and kick his butt back into the 90s. Disgusting.”
Can’t say I disagree with her, it was a piece of bread. If Dave Grohl can play with a broken leg and 5 Seconds of Summer’s Michael Clifford can go on after burning half his face, then certainly Harwell can get over the fact that someone threw some bread at him.
Maybe he needed some of the stuff that Colorado is known for these days to lighten up.
Finally, am I the only person who didn’t know that Smash Mouth was still around? I thought they went away with the ’90s?
