Boo On You, Dane Cook!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooAmerican IdolEllen DeGeneresSimon CowellDane Cook


While at the American Idol finale, Dane Cook was serenading Simon Cowell with one of his original songs until season seven Idol reject Ian Bernardo grabbed the mic from him.

Berendo interrupted Cook by saying:

"Who cares? It's all about Ian Benardo tonight!

I'm going to replace you, Simon Cowell! No one has a thing to say about you, just me…and I want to say I'm replacing you, Simon Cowell, because I'm more entertaining than you!"

No one is going to admit that was in bad taste but it was what Dane did after that caused a commotion.

"Dane yelled at me 'I can’t believe you let this f***ing f*ggot get on stage with me," said Benardo. "His representative followed me off stage and continued to berate me, yelling 'You f***ed my client, you f***ing faggot, you will burn in hell.'"


He insists that Dane continued to yell at him as security escorted him from the building.

Although Cook's rep, Barry Katz, claims that this incident “never happened.”

Benardo is also upset at Ellen DeGeneres because she was allegedly a witness to the gay slurs.

"I want Ellen to apologize to me for not doing anything or saying anything to Dane while he was screaming at me," he continued. "I have always looked up to Ellen and I am offended that she sat by and did nothing."

    fuck dane cook…someone should suicide bomb him

  2. 2

    Dane is a loser, so no surprise really.

  3. 3

    So wait, Perez honey…is it "Ian Bernardo", "Berendo", OR "Ian Benardo" Slow down when you type sweetycakes.

  4. 4

    Oh no. Call the UN! Someone got offended.

  5. 5

    Bernardo is a nutcase, he tried to get on so you think you can dance as well and made a fool of himself.

  6. 6

    Dane Cook sucks and deserves whatever he gets but why are you taking the word of an f*ing loon?

  7. 7

    dane sucks but don't believe he deserves an apology from ellen, it was his problem why didn't he take care of it! loser!

  8. exBFF says – reply to this


    so, because he's gay, you automatically side with Bernardo? Someone who has proven that he's willing to do anything, even crash a stage, just to get attention. Someone who is desperate for attention…any attention?

    Wait, we're still talking about Bernardo…right?

  9. 9

    So he interrupted Dane Cook, Dane Cook got mad and went off on him and now he wants an apology from Ellen?? Okay dumbass.

  10. 10

    Who is Dane Cook? I never heard of him.

  11. 11

    I don't like Dane Cook but that is called freedom of speech. Just as you, Mario, have the right to come to this blog and call so and so a fVcking idiot, Dane Cook also has the right to say whatever the hell he wants.

  12. 12


  13. 13

    So…..you believe that psycho Bernardo?? The guy is clearly off his meds (or in need of many).

    I think it says MORE about YOU that you believe him.

    and by the way….he was an effing moron interrupting Dane and the show. it was embarrassing that they let that moron on stage. Did they even frisk or body search him?? What if he decided to harm Cowell that night JUST FOR THE ATTENTION!

    I say get over the 'word' and everyone grow up. Have you actually turned on the news lately and seen what is really important??

  14. 14

    Does anyone care about this stupid piece of shit show anymore? It should get the fucking boot.

  15. 15

    now you're gonna trash dane cook for using the same word that came out of your mouth right before you got your ass handed to you a while back

  16. 16

    That doesn't even sound like a true story. Seriously?

  17. 17

    No one owes you an apology you dumb fuck! I do not believe for one second Elen wouldn't say shit about some stupid comic yelling out gay slurs! Sorry your dumbass punk never was loser!

  18. 18

    Pfftt–I bet Ian never takes a mic out of Dane Cook's hands ever again.

  19. 19

    Why are you so quick to believe that Berendo dude. It is just because he is gay? It that all it takes for you to trust somebody? Gay people are more trust worthy than straight people? Did you not see that dude's behavior? Now I'M offended!

  20. 20

    Only a closeted frat boy would think this dipshit is funny. Every single one of his jokes is a not so subtle brag.

  21. 21

    Ian Bernardo is a famewhore with delusions of his own grandeur. No wonder you side with him. If it came from his lips, there's no truth to it, whatsoever.

  22. Heh says – reply to this


    Ian Bernardo you are my hero !! That is amazing !!!!!! hahahaha he really did fuck that a-hole good !!!! Dane needs to chill the fuck out

  23. 23

    Dane Cook is not funny in the least. Also, not up to Ellen to intervene. Stop being a baby.

  24. 24

    is..he wearing makeup??
    he looks so different.
    dane cook's standup sux.
    you are NOT funny, dane.
    no one's laughing.

    and why should ellen defend for him?!
    it's not her f*cking problem.
    what is she, your keeper?!

  25. 25

    I seriously doubt that happened.

  26. 26

    ellen is so not in the blame

  27. 27

    How did Ellen witness this when she was sitting at the judges table she wasn't backstge with them she was at the table obviously he's a liar

  28. 28

    team Dane! the other guy is crazy and is probably lying to get attention. he is just a big attention whore. proved it with his Kanye moment.

  29. 29


  30. 30

    Okay, I'm definitley not a fan of Dane Cook but in his defense, he wasn't the only being disrespectful. If anything Ian Berendo started it…as juvenile as that sounds.

  31. 31

    I'm sure Dane and all of the other idol rejects were pissed that their moment in the spotlight was rudely taken from them, but its pretty apparent that this Ian character will do ANYTHING to get attention. Maybe Ellen hasn't said anything because he's making the whole thing up!

  32. 32

    hey dane is awesome and this guy is a nobody that wants his 15 minutes to last a little longer. And how stupid can he be, taking aim at two COMEDIANS who will no doubt turn this around on him. Bernardos questioning the integrity of both celebrites, but no oneis questioning his credibility? Now that I find "inneresting"

  33. 33

    Not cool fro Dane, but just peachy for you? You said the exact very thing…….. So you are an asshole too right Mario?

  34. 34

    So this Bernardo person pulled a Kanye type thing I take it, and Dane Cook didn't like it. Eh so sad for him. His comedy is not so hot, but neither is AI. I didn't watch one minute of it this year, and I have only watched about twenty minutes of Dane Cook's comedy. He wasn't very funny, and I am not that picky. Must be Bernardo thinks Dane is not that hot either. Too bad I don't know how far Bernardo made it.

  35. 35

    So… it's okay for Benardo to act like a huge jerk, but not Dane?

  36. 36

    I looked up his act on youtube, I am glad Ian Bernardo interrupted him cause his act fucking sucked.

  37. 37

    I don't think Dane is very funny, but I have literally never even heard of this Ian guy, not once. Like others have said, its ok for you to say f*ggot, but not Dane?

    I hate when people pull these Kanye type moves, it doesn't make you more famous..people just end up thinking you're a douche.

    Getting really sick of you Perez…don't stick up for someone just because they are gay as well Mario.

  38. luvu2 says – reply to this


    so umm what happened? I was confused by this whole post.Can't decide if it's poor writing or sleep deprivation(on my end) oh well

  39. 39

    I think before Ellen apologizes to Ian, Perez should apologize to him first for showing that its okay to use that word when you're angry at someone like he did to Will I Am and his peeps

  40. 40

    First of all who is Ian? Why does he matter? 2nd of of all why the fuck does ellen need to do anything for him? It isn't her fucking job to correct ppl because she's a lesbian

  41. 41

    Dane cook rules! Y'all are haters!! Ian who?

  42. 42

    Never liked Dane, as far as Eleen goes, she only does whats good for her interests. She kisses every ones ass on her show, she only cares for her own gay interests and could care less for the rest of the gay community…..

  43. Scrib says – reply to this


    Am I the only one who got very confused reading this posting? I couldn't really tell who was yelling about who — and about what — and why?

  44. 44

    As much as I can't stand Dane Cook, I don't believe the happened.

  45. 45

    So you're going to take the word of some desperate loser over several professionals? Oh yeah, your whole world revolves around gay this, gay that! You'd rather try to drag Dane Cook's name through the mud! Stop being a parasite on your own people! Hell, a respectable gay person like Ellen isn't bothering with this bull shit!

  46. 46

    Perez dropped the fg-bomb himself and got punched out for it a year ago. Lets face it Ian Bernardo is full of some of the crazy and it's doubtful Dane said this.

  47. 47

    dane stinks

  48. 48

    i was at the finale and i dunno if dane said all that stuff backstage but he certainly didnt say it on stage. they went to commericial so quickly its impossible that ellen saw or heard any of it because the judges stayed in their seats during that break

  49. 49

    um no berendo is the idiot!…..wth is he doing taking the mic from dane! when hes trying to do a skit, ur not famous buddy cool off, sit down, and shut up. what he did was just plane rude…

  50. 50

    If this is even true, you are no one to talk. Oh wait, but it's only ok to use gay slurs if you're gay, right? Hypocritical moron.

  51. 51

    what Dane actually said was "u fucking fuck"….clearly this Ian guy wants attention and will do whatever it takes , anything to get his name in the headlines…..all this took place soooooo long ago why he making comment on it now, cause he faded away and when his little stunt didn’t really work he just waited for a bit to pass and stirred the pot again so to say…and Perez just cause this Ian guy says Dane said it don’t make it true do some research first…don’t just join the lynch mob b/c he is a gay guy also n u feel u need to band together…..n ps don’t throw stones when u live in a glass house, honestly I think gay guys use that F work more than any straight person ever do. INTOLERENCE SHOULD NOT BE A DOUBLE STANDARD.

  52. 52

    Re: gallycat – Too funny! That was the very first thing I thought!

  53. 53

    fuck dane cook n his fug face. he was OVER a few years ago. next!

  54. 54

    Oh my, what a surprise, Dane Cook is an enormous douchenozzle. :rolleyes:

    It has been known for quite some time of what an asshole this guy really is

  55. 55

    I highly doubt that this is true, I do believe that Ellen would have said something if she saw someone called someone else the f word, she seems like the type of person to say something. If it wasnt for that comment I would have thought it possible because i have heard many mixed storied about Dane Cook.

  56. 56

    who is Ian Bernawhatever anyway????

  57. 57

    the poor gay baby cant take the heat…u cant be a rude asshole then play the gay card.

  58. 58

    This Cook guy is the same one who was hating on Vanessa Hudgens one year at the TCAs, now that I recall. Hm. I bet he ain't got many HOLLYWOOD friends…

    As for Benardo (sp?) I thought that thing was scripted but later on I read it wasn't. Dunno what his ish is…

  59. 59

    Anyone who believes a word Ian says is a moron. Famewhore, wannabee… I bet none, or little of this happened. He just wants press now that he realizes no one cares about him anymore.

  60. 60

    Yeah I don't believe that. This is just a lie created by an Idol reject for attention whoring.

  61. 61

    I lost all faith in the validity of this story when he said Ellen witnessed this and did/said nothing. He is just an attention whore, but he goes about it the wrong way.

  62. 62

    Re: Manda756 – Ian Bernardo is some American Idol reject. I saw a clip of his audition for AI - it was horrible. I don't mean just bad - like cringeworthy. He thinks he's hot and a good singer and he's not. He wasn't supposed to say anything when DC was doing his bit - him and other rejects were in the background that's it.

  63. 63

    Re: archimmes – Really? Do you know him? He's not an asshole - I'm pretty sure assholes don't go to Iraq - for free no payment from USO or anyone - and perform for the troops. That's what Dane did. He is one of the few celebrities not a country singer or wrestler to come there and even went to the small bases and not just in the 'Green Zone.' He does a lot for his fans, he is actually funny and if you don't like him oh well.

  64. zooby says – reply to this


    That Bernardo loser is an annoying POS … always trying to get attention. And he's UGLY too … not even a good looking gay guy,

  65. 65

    Dane Cook is a worthless thief. Steals material from REAL comedians and performs it poorly. I don't know who this Bernardo douche is, but it seems like they'd make a nice couple.

  66. 66

    AI contestants have lied about stuff like this after being booted so who lnows if this is true….Dane is a douche regardless

  67. 67

    Well Ian Bernardo shouldnt have been such an ass and interrupted anyone's time on stage. Get over it. What a drama queen.

  68. jdrew says – reply to this


    this dude sounds nutso… I *might* have believed the Dane part… but he wants an apology from Ellen? I don't think this is true…

  69. 69

    but it's ok if you do it? get over yourself douchebag.

  70. abygo says – reply to this


    i call BS on this one, i don't think it's true.

  71. 71

    Shithead guy shouldn't have grabbed the mike from him. That's just fucking rude. You knew it was rude when Kanye did it to Taylor Swift, so why are you sticking up for this douchbag when he does it to Dane Cook? And Ellen doesn't owe anybody an apology. This moron's trying to drag her into it because Dane Cook isn't famous enough to get him the attention he craves.

  72. 72

    Just because ellen is a homosexual means she needs to stick up for anyone else who's homosexual if somebody is using gay slurs? is this guy completely delusional?

  73. 73

    Someone is trying to seek attention and that's it!
    Dane rocks and if this was true I'm pretty sure Ellen would have said something by now and she didn't so guess what that means??? It's two words first word starts with a "m" and the second "u"………made up!!!

  74. 74

    I think Dane had every right to say whatever he wanted to say. Just because Benardo is gay does NOT mean he is right. If I was gay and I killed someone who cut infront of me in line and I saw it as a "hate move" I would still go to jail. We need to remember what's right from what's wrong in this world and stop taking sides due to face value.
    What he did that evening ruined an entire segment-Dane's segment. Also, I partly blame producers for allowing him on the show again-wft were you thinking!?

  75. 75

    Look at how quick you are to believe Benardo over Cook. Benardo's the one with rage and crazy enough in interrupt on live tv.

    Think, Perez.

  76. 76

    You interrupt the guys stage time. A guy who is widely known for his vulgarity. What you want? A f***ing cookie?

    This coming from the same guy who is so disillusioned that he thinks it's actually an insult to tell a Brit to "Go drink some tea". Complete moron.

  77. 77

    Sounds like a load of crap to me - big lie. Why would Dane Cook do that knowing it would cause a huge backlash? I'm not buying it….

  78. 78

    I expect no less from a not so funny crap actor wannabe as Dane Cook…still a boring unfunny, averagely attractive hack!

  79. 79

    Well, Dane Cook is a douche.. so not surprised.

  80. 80

    holy crap, really? this is shit. HE FUCKING STOLE THE MIC AND RUINED THE SONG FOR EVERYONE! I would've been yelling the same thing. Better yet, if i was dane i would've punched him right in the twat. fucker
    GO DANE!
