Today, the internet has ascribed an inspiring bit of heroism to Paul Rudd, after video surfaced this weekend of a man who almost, kind of looks like Paul Rudd helping to prevent an alleged hate crime at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport (as shown in the video above). Alas, @TheRealPaulRudd was actually thousands of miles away, likely doing nothing, while real American heroes got their hands dirty.
I mean, maybe? That looks like Paul Rudd as remembered from a weeks-old dream. Anyway, we emailed Paul Rudd's publicist about this and she said:
It isn't him. Thanks for checking.
That sounds suspiciously like the statement of a PR person whose client was happy to not be involved in the prevention of a homophobic beating, eh? What is Paul Rudd hiding?
Makes you think.
