You tell 'em, Zooey!
In yesterday's LA Times opinion column, journalist Patt Morrison spoke out against Zooey Deschanel for saying the following about Downtown L.A. at the BAFTA gala, which was attended by the royal couple:
"I just don't want them to see the worst of L.A."
Here's what Morrison wrote in response:
"I can't believe Zooey Deschanel is really the snobby cow she came off sounding like Saturday evening."
"I cannot apologize enough to Ms. Deschanel that in some places, the sidewalks do not smell like Jo Malone candles."
When Zooey read Morrison's column, she took to her website to fight the comments. She claims that the quote Morrison took issue with was "taken completely out of context," and that it was meant to be funny.
More from Zooey:
"You also open your piece by calling me a 'cow', which might be your opinion, but I wish a journalist for the Los Angeles Times and KPCC had found a more sophisticated way of sharing a difference in perceived opinion."
Yeah, we're def on Team Deschanel here! It's clear that her comment was innocent enough, and calling her a "snobby cow" was very immature and inappropriate.
Who do U side with here? Zooey or LA Times' Patt Morrison?
