Zach Galifianakis seems to have gotten the brunt of the heat for
smoking a fake joint on TV causing Mel Gibson to be fired from The Hangover II.
Here's what the film's director, Todd Phillips, had to say about Zach Galifianakis' involvement in the Mel firing:
"There's no truth to it being any singular person. The truth is, if it was one person it wouldn't have gone down that way, and I can promise you that. But when you have a rupture in this little family you create — especially on a sequel with a lot of the same actors and 99 percent of the same crew — you have to think about the big picture as much as a two-minute scene. I think we're on the verge of making something truly special and I'm really excited about that."
It doesn't surprise us
at all that there could have been MORE than one person who didn't want Mel to be involved in Hangover II.
What do U think? Did everyone want Mel out equally? Or was Zach the ringleader?
