LL Cool J isn’t going to be on Sarah Palin’s show tonight after all.
The show, Real American Stories, apparently includes some dated accounts. “Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show. WOW,” he wrote on Twitter.
So Fox decided to replace him with some other real American. “Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith’s interview fit that criteria,” a spokesperson told TV Newswer. (LL’s real name is James Todd Smith.) “However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career.”
