Tom Hanks Caught Up In A Racist Video!

Tom Hanks Racist Video

You can run, you can hide, but you can NEVER escape the Internet!

It seems like Tom Hanks has got some explaining to do!!!

After The Daily Caller, a D.C. based news site, posted a video from a 2004 St. Matthew's Parish School event he hosted, one horribly offensive thing was brought to attention.

It appears that in the video, next to Hanks, is a fellow parent and investment banker wearing BLACKFACE and dressed in a "tribal" costume!!!!!


Following the video's leak, Tom released a statement saying:

"For many years I emceed the annual fundraising auction for my kids' school. In 2004, I was blindsided when one of the parents got up on the stage in a costume that was hideously offensive then and is hideously offensive now. What is usually a night of food and drink for a good cause was, regrettably, marred by an appalling few moments."

…that's for sure!!

No word yet from the school, who says they do not comment on fundraisers and school events OR Hanks' co-host of the night, the Eagles musician, Glenn Frey.

Unbelievable. There is NO reason why things like this should still be going on or why some people think it's acceptable!!!

    Okay, He's not racist. Did you really have to print this?

  2. 2

    Why is someone dressed as someone or something "horribly offensive"?

  3. 3

    Why does Tom Hanks have some explaining to do? He didn't do anything. I could very easily sit next to someone who os racist, that doesn't make me racist. This is a story about nothing.

    oh here we go with all the fucked up PC shit again. *rolls eyes* I don't have any problems with Tom for wearing black face… I have problems with Tom because he endorses that fuck up in the White House. You know, they'll never get that smell out of the furniture. LOL

    So what about the movie "White Chicks"? Wasn't that horrifically racist? Why does it seem things are only racist if it goes against African Americans?

    Re: Sick_girl – Agreed. Re: Shelah – Tom Hanks wasn't the one in blackface, did you even read the article? And I'm pretty sure you're probably one of the few who defended Bush”s insane abuse of presidential power, yet has it all wrong with this president. Great job staying in the real world and not you're imaginary world.

    It's kindof like Perez registering is domain name with GoDaddy the African Elephant killer and then getting an award from Peta.

  12. 12

    There is no reason why things like this should still be going on??? It happened seven years ago! Why do you insist on making a big deal out of nothing?

    Tom didn't do anything wrong! Slow news day????

  14. 14

    Shocker….another misleading headline from PerezHilton.com. You guys must be getting desperate for hits or something. This is a total NON-story.

  15. 15

    Mario, shame on you. Why are you blaming Tom Hanks for another person's costume. Another misleading headline!

    Re: Mista Busta – : Please look up Black face in wikipedia. You'll understand why it's offensive. I'm not even black and I can see why it's offensive. I'm pretty sure your comment only comes from not knowing what black face is.. so no harm done.

  17. 17

    Oh and news flash….. Tom Hanks is still a national treasure. Thanks for the confirmation.

    so tomhanks standing next to someone in black face is horrible but your beloved kpop bands in black face on a regular basis is not something newsworthy?
