Brett Ratner and hate speech

Film director Brett Ratner made a big apology yesterday. He was picked to direct next year’s Oscar ceremony and reporters asked him about rehearsing the usually too long, too bloated, and too dull movie telecast. His response:

“Rehearsal? What’s that? Rehearsal’s for fags.”

And now Ratner is no longer directing the Oscars next year. While this hate speech deserves an apology, here are five more things Ratner should apologize for (in no particular order):

1. This Nobel prize in medicine worthy gem from his horrid appearance on “The Howard Stern Show”: ““I’m a hypochondriac. Before I go all the way, I send the girl to the doctor and check them for everything. My doctor has a test to tell if you’re going to catch something in the future even.”

2. “X-Men: The Last Stand”

3. “Chaos”, one of 2011’s shortest-lived shows (it aired over the summer … once before changing time slots; three times before being canceled)

4. “Rush Hour 3” and the fact they gave Chris Tucker more than $20 million for it. What else has Chris Tucker done?

5. Telling Howard Stern “I have huge balls.”

    • You are correct. I always forget that that was Chris Tucker and not a good friend of ours. But what has he done since Rush Hour, 13 years ago? Check IMDB. It’s a bit … uneventful.
