Lars Von Trier Questioned By Police For Nazi Comments, Swears Off Public Speaking

Lars Von Trier Cannes Nazi Comments

Remember that guy who said he understood Adolf Hitler and sympathized with him? Lars Von Trier?

If not, let's recap. During the Cannes Film Festival last May, director Lars Von Trier taught everyone a huge lesson in having a social filter.

You can watch what happened right here if you'd like to refresh your memory. If only for the priceless look on Kirsten Dunst's face…

Hank Williams, Jr. Apologizes For Comparing Obama To Hitler

Filed under: Barack ObamaFootball

Hank Williams, Jr. apology

Hank Williams, Jr., the cowboy you've seen singing the introduction to Monday Night Football games since 1989, has apologized for his controversial comments on FOX & Friends earlier this week.

ESPN decided to yank his iconic song and dance from the air on Monday after he said a golf game between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner was "like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu."

Initially, the country singer only replied with an explanation of his "extreme" analogy, but has finally coughed up an apology on Tuesday. He wrote on his website:

"I have always been very passionate about Politics and Sports and this time it got the Best or Worst of me. The thought of the Leaders of both Parties Jukin and High Fiven on a Golf course, while so many Families are Struggling to get by simply made me Boil over and make a Dumb statement and I am very Sorry if it Offended anyone. I would like to Thank all my supporters. This was Not written by some Publicist."

This should help ESPN decide whether or not his absence on Monday night was a one time thing. Our guess is we'll see him singing about football before next week's game.

ESPN Removes Hank Williams, Jr. From Monday Night Football Broadcast After Comparing Obama To Hitler

If you're on television, we think it's a good idea to avoid talking about Hitler. ESPECIALLY if you're comparing the most evil man in history to the current President of the United States!

Hank Williams, Jr., the country singer who has opened every Monday Night Football game since 1989 with his theme song Are You Ready For Some Football?, was removed from ESPN's broadcast last night after controversial remarks on FOX News.

He told the hosts of FOX & Friends that a golf game between Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner was "one of the biggest political mistakes ever."

When questioned, he explained, "That would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu."

The FOX news anchors didn't quite get the analogy and neither did ESPN execs.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz announced on Monday afternoon:

“While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast."

Sources say that ESPN is still evaluating whether they intend to use the song in the future. In a statement, Williams didn't exactly offer up an apology, but a little more of an explanation for his remarks, saying:

"Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme - but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me — how ludicrous that pairing was. They're polar opposites and it made no sense. They don't see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President."

Well, we bet a lot of people will be expressing how "stupid" his "extreme analogy" was to them.

Another "misunderstood" statement was when Mr. Williams, Jr. referred to Obama and Vice President Joe Biden as "The Three Stooges."

Since we can do basic math we were able to infer that this guy actually has no idea what he is talking about!

Ugh! Can someone tell us WHY was this guy invited to offer up political commentary in the first place?

Check out the video above for yourself and let us know if U think ESPN should continue to air his song before future games!

kanye west compares himself to hitler

Why would you EVER invite this comparison under ANY context, Kanye???

During his performance at the Big Chill music festival on Saturday night, Kanye West vented about being misunderstood, and pulled a serious Lars Von Trier.

Here's Kanye's VERY misguided attempt at speaking about how people don't understand him:

Michael Bay Not Offended By Megan Fox Hitler Comments, Still Let Her Get Canned Anyway

Too bad he didn't let Steven Spielberg know it was NBD!

Even though Michael Bay was told to fire Megan Fox from the Transformers franchise by the iconic director after her comments comparing him to "Hitler," he admits that he, himself, wasn't personally offended by it!

He explains:

Lars Von Trier Apologizes For Nazi Comments For The 438th Time Again!

Filed under: Film FlickersOops!PerezTVEvents

Last we heard from Melancholia director Lars von Trier, he had dug himself into a PRET-TY deep hole with further Nazi comments.

As a reminder, Lars made some awful Nazi/Hitler comments (above), which enraged folks at Cannes, and got him kicked out of the film festival. He attempted to apologize, but only made things worse for himself.

Now, he's giving the whole apology thing another go, and this time he's referring to his Nazi comments as "unintelligent…and needlessly hurtful."

Okay Lars, this is a step in the right direction! We like what we're hearing so far!

After being condemned for his comments, Lars had the following to say:

"In my opinion, freedom of speech, in all its shapes, is part of basic human rights. However, my comments during the festival's press conference were unintelligent, ambiguous and needlessly hurtful."

"My intended point was that the potential for extreme cruelty, or the opposite, lies within every human being, whatever nationality, ethnicity, rank or religion. If we only explain historical disasters with the cruelty of individuals we destroy the possibility of understanding the human mechanisms, which in turn are necessary in order to avoid any future crimes against humanity."

All right, Lars. As far as apologies are concerned, this is MUCH BETTER than your previous ones.

We're thinking you should quit while you're ahead. You know if you keep talking about this, the hole-digging will begin again.

What do U think about Lars' latest apology? Adequate, or at least adequate enough?
