I’ve seen this before in politics so you’re not fooling anybody Scottie.
Bill bombed some countries when he got caught getting a blowjay.
Bush talked about gay marriage when the Iraq war went to the crapper.
And Scottie Pippen put out “Balls Deep in Love” after getting beat up by midgets.
Did I stutter? Do I look like Ron Harper?
Ok ok, here’s the word from Scottie:
“Given the recent controversy surrounding Gary Coleman, the fact that I’ve been repeatedly asked questions about my small part in the movie ‘Midgets vs. Mascots,’ and a related video posted online which shows me being assaulted by a group of Little People, I want to clear up any misunderstandings.
In 2008, I agreed to play a cameo role in a movie titled ‘A Tribute to Big Red’ (now titled ‘Midgets vs. Mascots’ [Ed. Note: Which was then changed to “Transformers 2: Rise of the Fallen]). My role was scripted, and the first two scenes went off without any problems. During the third scene, I was told that four Little People, along with actor Gary Coleman, were going to become angry with something I said and storm off as the scene ends. Instead, they basically attacked me, with Gary Coleman apparently climbing on a chair behind me to hit me over the head with a phone (twice).
A short fight ensued before I heard the film’s director yell ‘cut.’ As I recall, some of the Little People were laughing as the director explained that the scene was ‘sort of like an episode of the TV show Punk’d.’ At that point, I left quickly without a clear understanding of what was going on.
As for the Little Person who claims he was injured in the attack, I really don’t think I caused the injury or can be held to blame. To the best of my knowledge, there is no action being taken against me, nor am I pursuing any action. For the record, I have never seen the movie and, in hindsight, wish I’d not been involved with it. I simply wanted to make clear my role and position as I understand the movie is coming out soon. I will not be answering any further questions regarding the film.”
And here’s the video from the brutal Kneehigh Knockdown.
While Michael Jordan is out looking like he survived a forest fire, Scottie Pippen is getting beat up by midgets.
