Zach Galifianakis Fearlessly Slams Ke$ha, Sean Penn, and Bad Parents Everywhere

Zach Galifianakis slams Hollywood

There are few too men who could pull off what Zach Galifiankis does. Not only is he effortlessly HIGHlarious, but he's brazenly honest, which is probably why he's efforlessly HIGHarious to begin with!

In a recent interview in Rolling Stone, the actor details several experiences where he doesn't hold back on celebs he loathes and any parents who let their children see The Hangover.

It looks like Ke$ha was the most recent star to feel the wrath of Galifianakis. After not responding to an email she had sent asking to meet up for a drink, he happened to run into her at the bar. Instead of an insincere apology or excuse as to why he never responded, she got this:

"I saw that Ke$ha woman the other day. She was sitting by herself, and I walked up to her and said, 'Listen, I got your e-mail. Your music is really bad! I don't know who listens to it, but I imagine it's, like, six-year-olds — and it's a bad message.'"

Aww! Poor Ke$sha…but we would have really liked to see the look on her face! LOLz!

But that's only a pop star on the rise. Surely he wouldn't dare disrespect an established Hollywood A-lister like Sean Penn? WRONG!

When the Academy Award winner called to offer Galifianakis a role in Into The Wild, he told him he had an appointment at Arby's and to "send my Jews the script."

If you're the type of parent that doesn't feel bad about letting their children watch R-rated movies, don't EVER tell Zach Galifianakis! When children approach him and tell him they loved The Hangover, he'll simply bend down and tell them they have terrible parents. "And I mean it."

Does Zach Galifianakis' honesty make you like him more or is he a little TOO honest?

    I think the whole thing with Ke$ha and Sean Penn was a joke…but as for children watching Hangover…he's absolutely right! I'd never allow it.



  2. 2

    Right On ZG! We saw HII and were SURROUNDED by kids who were NOT out of middle school and def not 17! Bad parents and bad theaters letting them in (no doubt without their parent's consent) Finally - a real celeb who has the b*lls to say it how it is!



  3. 3

    That is… hilariously true.



  4. 4

    He's a comedian, I wouldn't take this seriously.



  5. 5

    My respect for him just went up a notch.



  6. 6

    Kesha is another overproduced no talent skank!!!



  7. 7

    I would never let my chid see The Hangover! So Zach does have a point … It's a rated R movie, not for kids!!

    I don't think there is ever any need to be mean or cruel to another person, even if you don't like their music.



  9. 9

    He's brilliant. Love him!



  10. 10

    i love this man so much. i want to have his bearded babies.



  11. 11

    Ke$ha, Sean Penn (post fast times) and especially bad parents should be slammed



  12. 12

    Def makes me like him more! lol I love this kid!



  13. 13

    He obviously didn't really say that to her face, she would have made a joke about it by now.



  14. 14

    think he's funny, and if this stuff is true. good! and he's right about hi2, although i could thnk of a lot of reasons not to see it.
    watch "between two ferns" with zach on you tube. very funny. there is one with sean penn where he is a jerk, but he has to be in on it, so mayber the're chummier than this story leads you to believe.



  15. 15

    there is honesty and then there is rudeness
    be real but keep it classy



  16. 16

    Yet its OK For CaCa to send her immoral message to the kiddies. As for Galifianakis he is an arrogant whiny little baby. I dona wanna work wiffum cause day said sumpin bad um um sniff sniff



  17. 17

    He's so right about those kids. When I saw Machete, parents brought five year olds into seeing that!

    When stealing stories today you seemed to miss this one….."Lady Gaga's Born This Way set another record this week, but not one that Gaga's team will be happy about. Sales of the album dropped off by 84% from its sizzling (but discount-inflated) opening week. That's the the steepest drop-off in sales, expressed in a percentage basis, of any of the 17 albums that sold 1 million units in a week in Nielsen SoundScan history..
    Gaga's album sold 174,000 copies this week, down from 1,108,000 last week, when sales were goosed by a two-day, 99-cent sale at Amazon."

    Well, SOMEBODY should be saying it. There are a lot of movies that kids are watching that they shouldn't be. Heaven forbid someone stands up and says "Hey maybe you're kids shouldn't be singing about waking up and brushing their teeth with Jack." or "Maybe they shouldn't see Lady Gaga walking around in her underwear and think that's normal." Kids don't get to be kids anymore and it's not only sad it's sick. You go Zach, you're exactly right. And as for being mean about Ke$ha? She talked about how she wanted to rub her snatch on the man's beard on numerous occasions. Pretty sure he has the right to tell her what he thinks of her.

    Zack Galifianakis is the Honey Badger of the human world.

    He's my hero! :) I remember he was on comedy central presents years and years ago, and I recorded it and watched it over and over. I am so glad that he has finally getting the attention he deserves he is one of the funniest comedians of our generation!



  22. 22

    All I have to say is HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! :P Good for him for telling parents to NOT let their kids see the Hangover. Just because it's a movie doesn't mean it's for kids. Parents need to monitor what their kids are watching. Too many parents seem to think that movie theatre personelle are supposed to monitor it, but if parents are giving their kids money, they need to know what it's going to.



  23. 23

    I wouldn't let my own son watch it, but it's funny, when I think about the stuff that my friend and I used to watch when my parents were asleep LOL

    I suppose the big difference is that they didn't KNOW and they didn't take us to SEE it at the movies lol



  24. 24

    I happen to agree with him on all points, but he is an actor, not the morality police. There are more positive ways to make a point, or make change in the industry. I just can't shake the feeling that his attacking specific individuals about societal issues is to feel superior by putting others "in their place" I am sure he doesn't give a crap, and the people agreeing with his approach won't either , but arrogance isn't funny whether you are right or wrong.



  25. 25

    Sure he is a comedian, but I like his honesty.



  26. 26

    Clearly he is joking….seriously people…..as if Ke$ha knows how to use email……



  27. 27

    He only talked ish about Kesha?? What about Gaga and Katy Perry?? Their music blows chunks too. -_______-



  28. 28

    Zach Galifianakis is not funny. Oops.

    I totally agree with him and the crappy parenting do today. I'm always dumbfounded when I see parents bring small/young children to PG-13/R rated movies that are incredibly inappropriate for them to see!

    I don't really understand the angst against Sean Penn or Ke$ha, but I do think he prob missed out on a free BJ from Ke$ha.



  30. 30

    Oh Kesha's music sends a wrong message but The Hangover doesn't at all! Idiot.



  31. 31

    Re: duelastar – did you say anything to the parents??? you should have. more people need to call bad parents out for their bad behavior. i was afraid to when i was in my twenties, but now i see the damage it does. i called the parents of students when their pre-ker comes to school saying "say hello to my little friend". in this case it was the older siblings, but untilmitly the parents are responsible. my poor six year old can't even watch the newer scooby doo shows. i don't want him to hear about daphne's divorce and depression. sad , sad, sad.

    btw….i have my own reason for disliking penn, but what is his? anyone?



  32. 32

    Re: cruhhjackus – You are absolutely right! He IS the Honey Badger!



  33. 33

    I couldn't agree more about the Kesha thing, her music is really bad. Shouldn't it be up to the cinema's to deny entry to children if the film is inappropriate? Thats why they have ratings.



  34. 34

    Re: rghton! – Yeah, I know what you mean. That reminds me of something that happened last week- Some neighborhood kid knocked on my door the other day to deliver my cat that was wandering around. When my fiance opened the door,the little boy saw call of duty black ops up on our tv screen. He started to tell us how he LOVED that game, and I swear to god, I don't even think he was as tall as my bellybutton!! Absolutely no older than 6, I'd say, and I don't even think that old. Oh, but he also said that the Zombies part of the game scared him, and I was sitting there thinking 1. why did his parents let him knock on a stranger's door while holding a random cat?? 2. where in the hell were his parents?? 3. why did they buy him a game that "scared him?" But yeah, there's no need for kids to be doing crap like that, ESPECIALLY seeing Hangover movies. Do they even know what a hangover is?!



  35. 35

    Bullying strangers on the street is HIGHlarious, Perezzita? Oh, wait, it's bullying, of course you find it funny. Bullying is your default state.



  36. 36

    Re: straighticketvoter – I really do commend your honesty. There needs to be more people in this world that approach issues by going to the source. And I'm sure that you really have let those parents in on a lot. It's like how some people don't notice things until another person points it out to them. Hopefully it was just a fluke by the parents that was looked over, and they took your concerns into consideration. But that's not the main reason i'm responding- "my poor six year old can't even watch the newer scooby doo shows. i don't want him to hear about daphne's divorce and depression. "



  37. 37

    Re: sammysue08 – LMAO!! Exactly!



  38. 38

    HAH I think he's got true guts and tells it how it is, and he's damn right. Not going to lie, I have fun with Ke$ha's music, it's not terrible like he said, but it's not talent. Course, where is the talent anymore in music?

    As for Sean Penn, who cares if he's an A-Lister actor… he's still a person and if Zach doesn't like him for some reason, then so be it. Sean Penn isn't that great, he's kind of a mess if you ask me.

    As for him telling kids they have terrible parents… it's true, they do. I'm not a mom, I'm only in my early 20's still. But when I do have kids someday, movies like The Hangover are things my kids won't be watching. Those movies are for adults, not children. Sure, there are some movies that are Rated R that I will allow my kids to watch, because some aren't that bad and on the verge of pg-13. It just depends.

    I give Zack credit for being so ballsy, he's much nicer about all of that than I would of been hehe. Plus he's an awesome actor!



  39. 39

    Hes a bit of a twat really isn't he.



  40. 40

    Jokes or not..I don't really care for the dude..he needs to get over himself…
    He's a f*cking assss-munch imo!

    I love him! I agree, he was probably joking about some of it….Ke$ha & Penn, but the parents thing, I bet it's true, and I would totally agree. I LOVE the movie, but no way in hell am I going to let my 7 & 9 year old watch!



  42. 42

    He might be hilarious, but sure can be an asswhole.



  43. 43

    Go ahead Zach!



  44. 44

    he seems to be saying aloud what some people are already thinking but don't dare say
    might not always be wise
    but I guess that's just him



  45. 45

    Re: Geat real – Completely agree. Whether or not he was just joking about that stuff actually happening, he does across as if he needs to feel superior to other people. Most of his stories about celebs seem to come off as: "Look at how dumb this celebutard/person is and the cool way that I shut them down." But how exactly are his movies any different than Ke$ha's music, for example? Both forms of mindless entertainment. I enjoy both, both leave me feeling amused, but neither make me think or make me a better person. And it doesn't have to, but don't act like your form of entertainment is superior to anyone else's.



  46. 46

    he has the Perez syndrome…….as if his Movies are deep…pfffffffffff his PR ppl need to tell him to shut up



  47. 47

    Ok, so he's a bit rude but #1, he's funny (for now at least) and #2, only the truth has been said so far, can't blame him for that. The jew thing i'm convinced is just his humor, nothing discriminatory.



  48. 48

    Joke or not, ironically enough I would equate "Hangover's" plotline and "message" to be more or less the same as Kesha's music, thus I would say Galifianakis is in no position to judge her. One could say the same as he does, the parents who let their younger kids listen to her music are "bad parents". There are also far more idiotic music out there, which is also less fun, so I see no point in singling out Kesha as she has stated a long time ago "People are shocked by it, but if I were Guns ‘N’ Roses or Van Halen, no-one would be surprised. Or a rapper – look at all those songs on the radio that are, like, ‘Girl go up and down the pole’. I understand I’m supposed to be feminine and dainty, but I’m not". She's got a point, a guy would not get negative attention about the same issue to this extent, which is extremely hypocritical. And also, if you endorse a violent rapist like Mike Tyson in your movies, it would be wise to not open up your mouth about immorality. On a different note, I don't find him particularly funny. Too much of his humor is his overstated appearance, weight and beard, which gives an easy laugh. "Hangover" is one of the most unfunny films I have ever seen, but it appeals to the Western masses especially, as it's all about alcohol and inebriation. It's like saying "poop" to a kid, and you know they'll laugh their asses off. Very primitive and cheap humor, which can be funny at times, just not at this extent.

    cool :)
