Sarah Palin will present a TV special on Fox tomorrow night called Real American Stories. But some of the interviews were taped years ago, and LL Cool J didn't know his would eventually be used in a Sarah Palin-hosted show.
Here's what he wrote on the Twitter last night: "Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show. WOW"
Apparently "Real American Stories" is some sort of website of interviews that Fox launched around Independence Day 2008. Up until this Sarah Palin nonsense, the only hint that the Real American Stories website had anything to do with Fox was the tiny copyright notice at the bottom of the page. In other words, don't call this a new interview with LL. It's been here for years, rocking its peers and putting suckas in fear.
LL's 2008 interview was here, but as of like 10 minutes ago they have deleted it from the internet. Which I imagine means that they shall delete it from the program tomorrow, even though they presumably have the rights legally to do whatever they like with it.
But LL will not be in-studio with Sarah Palin. This will be very disappointing to Mary Katharine Ham.
Update: Fox will indeed edit LL out of the show tomorrow. They released a typically bitchy statement about it, too.
However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."
See, that's funny, because any given episode of the shitty cop show LL is on has 10+ million more people watching it than Fox News' highest rated show, The O'Reilly Factor.
