Late Show: Melissa McCarthy Mike and Molly Racist Joke
The joke occurred in a recent episode of the show in a scene where Mike’s mother said “Arizona? Why would I want to move to Arizona? It’s nothing but a furnace full of drunk Indians.” It does sound pretty racist and the Navajo nation thinks so as well. They have been pretty livid about the joke since it aired on a show that has become a critical success and sees millions of viewers tuning in for every episode.
A spokesman for the Navajo nation said an apology would be the right thing to do but added that “some damage done can’t be fixed in an apology.”
Late Show: Melissa McCarthy Tammy Review
Melissa McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone, are teaming up to direct a new movie together. The raunchy comedy, Tammy, was written by McCarthy and her husband and it was one of the first projects McCarthy signed on for after her breakout role in Bridesmaids.
The film centers on a woman who is laid off from her job at a Hardee’s, discovers her husband is having an affair and decides to go on a road trip with her alcoholic, foul-mouth and diabetic grandmother. Some of the actors rumored to be filling out the roles in the movie include John Goodman and Shirley MacLaine but those could change at any moment. Coincidentally, the movie almost got shelved as Beth McCarthy left the project last year.
Good think Melissa McCarthy was there to pick it up.
