Ugh. Clearly this was not just something he said on the fly and quickly regretted.
Brett Ratner has come under a great deal of - warranted, mind you - criticism for his despicable use of a gay slur during a Q&A session Friday after a screening of his new movie, Tower Heist, and now, we've finally got video of the incident as it went down!
Watch (above) as he's asked about the rehearsal process, only to pause and announce "Rehearsal's for ****," as though it's some kind of hilarious joke (at the 2:45 mark)!
Just so clASSy, right?
Rolled right off his tongue!
Clearly, this guy uses just amount as thought and tact here as he did during the entire filming of X-Men: The Last Stand, so we're tragically not too shocked at his behavior - but we certainly think that this should be a wake-up call to everyone in this industry who continues to give him work!
