“I Want To Eat His Children”: Celebrity Quotes That Made Us Question Their Character
In American society, celebrities are put on a pedestal. People look up to them, want to dress like them, talk like them, and spend ridiculous amounts of time following their whereabouts, love lives and everything in-between. So it seems that just because they’re in the spotlight, celebrities can do no wrong, well in this case, say no wrong. Well, take a look at these 10 quotes from famous celebs that made us go hmmm.
Katt Williams vs. Mexico
Katt Williams has been grabbing a lot of headlines for his wild behavior lately, but at a show in Phoenix last year, he made the news for his offensive rant about Mexicans living in America. He reportedly told an audience member: “No this ain’t Mexico, it used to be Mexico, motherf**ker, and now it’s Phoenix, goddammit. USA! USA!”
He went on to tell the man to go back to his country and later gave a half-a** apology to anyone who thought he was being “hateful,” but stated he meant what he said. Seems to me all those chemicals from his perms are getting to his head.
Method Man on Natural Hair
In an interview he did a while bac, Method Man expressed his disapproval of women who rock their hair naturally. “No. I don’t like peasy afros, sorry. I don’t like dreads either. I like a woman to get her hair did.”
Wow, really? So apparently natural hair isn’t “did.” Disrespectful. But what else should we expect from Meth right?
Don Imus Disrespects Rutgers’ Women’s Basketball Team
So Don Imus is another character who is known for having a few issues when it comes to the respect department, but after he referred to the Rutgers’ women’s basketball team as a bunch of “nappy-headed hos,” he really showed his true colors. And this time his narsty mouth not only shocked the nation, but put an end to his popular radio show back in 2007. I guess he got what he deserved. Well…that was until he got a whole new radio show in 2008.
Mike Tyson Wants Says He Wants to Devour People’s Children
He’s certainly not known as the nicest man on Earth, but in an interview preceding his much anticipated fight with Lennox Lewis back in 2002, Mike Tyson really upset a few people when he said: “Lennox Lewis, I’m coming for you man… I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!”
You want to eat his children? And then praise God? I’m convinced that that man had taken way too many shots to the head. Either that or it’s something he could have been smoking…
George Bush vs. Kanye West
Following Kanye West’s shocking allegation that George Bush didn’t care about black people during a relief concert for Hurricane Katrina victims, the former President did an interview with NBC where he responded to the statement by saying:
“It’s one thing to say, ‘I don’t appreciate the way he’s handled his business.’ It’s another thing to say, ‘This man’s a racist.’ I resent it, it’s not true, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency.”
Really? Our country was attacked, we took on more than one war, and millions of people lost their jobs and lives while you were president and catching a verbal jab from Kanye was one of the worst moments of your career? Yeah, something ain’t right with this one.
Kanye West Crashes Taylor Swift’s Party
Okay, so this incident is more about what was done than what was said, but who could forget when Yeezy interrupted poor little Taylor during her acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs?
His exact words were, “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you…I’ma let you finish. But Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time!” Ouch.
Seriously Kanye? I know it’s old, but damn that was messed up!
Rihanna’s “Risky Business”
We all know that little Miss Ri Ri is no stranger to controversy, but in a recent pic that she posted on Twitter, she really raised some eyebrows. The picture displays her in Chris Brown’s hotel room on her knees with a caption that reads, “Risky Business.”
This coming from the same girl who got knotted up by her man, left him and came back, but claims that their relationship is “nobody’s business.” Oh really? I can’t tell. Stuff like this has me really thinking that she’s a major attention-seeker, maybe trying to sell a few more albums. And boy, isn’t this the best way to do it.
50 Cent Calls a Follower “Autistic”
After a fan on Twitter threatened to shoot 50 if he didn’t hurry and release his album, the rap star wrote something that offended millions of people, including some celebs. He responded by saying, “Yeah just saw your picture fool you look autistic.”
Ouch! As if that wasn’t bad enough, he went on to say, “I don’t want no special ed kids on my timeline follow somebody else.” Fif later apologized for his insensitivity, but only after he caused an uproar in damn near the whole Twitter community. Way to go. We all know you’re a hardcore rapper, but that doesn’t mean you have to be an a-hole too.
Tracy Morgan Offends the Gay Community
During a show in Nashville, TN back in 2011, comedian Tracy Morgan said some things that really set a lot of people on fire, especially the LGBT community. Apparently, he isn’t too fond of gays, so he told the audience that if his son ever spoke to him in a sissy voice he would pull out a knife and “stab that little n***a to death.” Whoa! That’s a bit harsh.
Although he later apologized, I think it’s clear that he really has a little too much hate in his heart.
Keyshia Cole Thinks Black Girls Are Cool, But She’s Bi-Racial
With all the things Keyshia Cole has been through in her life, which were made public through the singer and her family’s repeated attempts at reality TV stardom, we always rooted for homegirl. But when she acted as though she wasn’t sure whether she wanted to take part in BET’s Black Girls Rock! annual celebration because she was all of a sudden claiming to be biracial, we were stumped. And a little bothered. And clearly, a lot of other people were too. It didn’t help that she later tried to clarify her statements and only dug a bigger hole for herself by making it clear that she’s not sure what she’s biracial with. Oh boy…just stick to singing, boo.
