But things took a turn when Guru-Murthy asked RDJ about a quote he said in a New York Times interview from 2008 (which ironically was promoting his very first Iron Man movie) where the actor vaguely alludes to his political views.
After Downey Jr. pointed out that his opinion has changed since the interview from five years ago, the anchor took an even darker turn and asked the actor some serious personal questions about his past. Guru-Murthy asked RDJ:
"You've talked about the relationship with your father and the role of all of that in, you know, the dark periods you went through. Taking drugs, drinking, all of that. And I just wondered whether you think you're free of all that?"
RDJ was understandably taken back by the invasive questions and cut Guru-Murthy off before stepping out of the interview.
Even though the anchor insisted he was "just asking questions," catching someone off-guard to get them to talk about something personal doesn't seem very professional.

KeKe Palmer is accusing performer Trey Songz of 'sexual intimidation,' among other things, after she randomly appeared in his newly released music video for Pick Up The Phone that was released on YouTube on Friday.

It is scary and potentially triggering to read, but here is her full, emotionally-charged IG message about what led up to her non-consensual appearance in the video and the hints about how she was forced into it (below):
