Jerry Lewis's Telethon Break-Down!

Uploaded by krs601

This is not the video of the day, but an ignorant vid of Jerry Lewis using the F word! Hmmm, I wonder how much G.L.A.A.D. or other Human rights groups will treat this situation. I'm sure the excuse will be, he's getting old and he didn't know any better! Notice the people in the background laughing or maybe their in disbelief, but either way it's a hot mess. The telethon raised over 64 million dollars for his charity, will anybody want a refund?

Revised: As you can see someone has removed the video, but follow the link to see it on CNN and read his apology that was released on Tuesday. He said, "That something like this would distract from the true purpose of the telethon pains me deeply," Lewis said in a written statement. Do you think his apology was sincere? Will this situation cause an uproar like Isaiah did? People keep in mind that Isaiah said that him and Patrick Dempsey was arguing and he said that, " you're not going to treat me like a b****, you're not going to treat me like a punk, you're not going to treat me like a f**!" It's unfortunate that people take things out of context. It was assumed by the people on set that the derogatory slurs were directed towards Knight, but he wasn't even in the room and neither was I. I'm just quoting what the man said to Larry King on CNN a few months ago. Please don't misunderstand what I'm writing, there's no excuse for using the word at all, but people say things in the heat of the moment! It's human nature to do that, but Isaiah was real stupid when he said it again to confirm that he didn't say it in the first place. So he doesn't get any cool points from me. On the other hand, Jerry was calm and telling jokes when he used the word, no aggression was present. The only other excuse is maybe a little whiskey was in his system! Oh well, just another moment in Hollywood's society!
