X-Man Producer Calls Kanye West The ‘N-Word’ in Racist Rant
Has John Palermo lost his ever-loving mind? The X-Men Origins: Wolverine producer had Hollywood buzzing after he posted a series of racist and gay bashing comments on Facebook that came for CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, Chinese-American talk show host Julie Chen, and power duo Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Kim and Yeezy were targets of Palermo’s venom after he found out the couple had recently moved to Bel-Air. “There goes the neighborhood!!!” he wrote according to the Hollywood Reporter. “It looks like a Poor Persian Palace, where’s Kris Jenner when you need her?! #MoneyCantBuyADumbNi–aClass.”
Where is Kanye in ALL CAPS when you need him? Yeezy either hasn’t gotten wind of this (the comments have since been taken down, of course) or is picking his battles after his Jimmy Kimmel showdown, but we’re surprised he let this one slide.
Meanwhile the producer tried to play off his comments by deflecting: “Maybe people [who take offense] will look in the mirror and say, ‘When was the last time I called Les Moonves and asked for an African-American to play opposite me?’” he said.
