EDITOR’s NOTE: Remember…. “It’s Not About Race” (don’t you love that line?)
Wolverine producer, John Palermo has really gone off the deep end in a racist tirade, rant, ora passionate PSA to bring “awareness” to Hollywood’s racist antics. John Palermo went in on Kanye West, Anderson Cooper and TV host Julie Chen in a very strange and prejudice fashion on his Facebook page.
“There goes the neighborhood!!!” the Los Angeles native posted upon reading that Kim Kardashian and West had purchased a mansion in tony Bel-Air. “It looks like a Poor Persian Palace, where’s Kris Jenner when you need her?! #MoneyCantBuyADumbN****Class”
In response to an article about Anderson Cooper attending the opening of his boyfriend’s gay bar, he simply typed: “#SmellsLikeLubeAndHIV.”
When it came to Julie Chen, the Chinese-American daytime talk show host, who is married to CBS chief Les Moonves and recently admitted having eyelid surgery to help her career, he wrote: “I’m crazy about Julie Chen!!! Now that her eyes are finally open, she should leave Monster Moonves.”
You can no longer see the racist rant because Palermo’s Facebook page has been taken down. By no means is Palermo backing down from his statements. Instead, he is suggesting that his comments were made to raise awareness about prejudice in Hollywood: “Maybe people [who take offense] will look in the mirror and say, ‘When was the last time I called Les Moonves and asked for an African-American to play opposite me?’”
John Palermo also stated that he is taking a “sabbatical” from the world of producing. If he is really trying to bring awareness to Hollywood’s apparent prejudice then he couldn’t have picked a better way than this?
