VIDEO VIRUS: David Arquette Calls Latina Women ‘Nuts’ On Fox News

David Arquette sat in a box on top of Madison Square Garden in New York on Tuesday and Wednesday to raise awareness for fighting hunger but still found time to declare Latina women are 'nuts' on (where else but?!) Fox News. "I think Latina women are, I mean, it depends on the woman, but I think they are very, they have great judgment, but there are some that are just nuts. I'm just saying," Arquette said earlier in the week on Fox News during a conversation about Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor. Arquette finally realized how unbelievably racist his statement was, or probably got flack from a Latino group, and issued this apology on Friday: "I would like to issue an apology for the comments I made on Fox and Friends. My intent was to be humorous and not offensive. I have nothing but love and respect for Latina women and women in general of all cultural backgrounds. What saddens me most is that it took away from the issue of Hunger in America, for which I was on the show to begin with. I work and a pantry in Venice California with a hispanic women named Delpia (who has been feeding people at St. Joseph's Center for 29 years) and she is my personal hero. Having been raised in Los Angeles I have grown up with a deep and profound love for the Latino culture." Ok, so growing up in Los Angeles means he has a "deep and profound love for the Latino culture?" Did he grow up in the barrio or something? He probably had a few relationships with Latina women in his youth that ended badly and like a guy he thought they were "nuts." Blindie wonders what David Arquette thinks of African American women?

Obama’s Message At NAACP’s 100th Anniversary: ‘Your Destiny is in Your Hands…No Excuses’

President Barack Obama addressed the crowd at the NAACP's 100th anniversary convention on Thursday in New York and gave an inspiring speech recognizing and giving praise to the civil rights movement and its pioneers who made it possible for him to become President of the United States. "Because of them I stand here tonight, on the shoulders of giant, the President said. "And I'm here to say thank you to those pioneers and thank you to the NAACP." Obama went on to say, "we've got to say to our children, yes, if you're African American, the odds of growing up amid crime and gangs are higher. Yes, if you live in a poor neighborhood, you will face challenges that someone in a wealthy suburb does not have to face. That's not a reason to get bad grades, that's not a reason to cut class, that's not a reason to give up on your education and drop out of school," he said. "No one has written your destiny for you. Your destiny is in your hands - and don't you forget that." "No excuses. No excuses," the President stressed. "You get that education. All those hardships will just make you stronger, better able to compete. Yes, we can."

Justin Timberlake Faces Off With A Paparazzo

1A14E52B1A14E521 Photos: London Entertainmnet Justin Timberlake almost pulled a Sean Penn on a photographer outside of a West Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Check out the smirk on Timberlake's face as the paparazzo gets up in his grill and the two men face off while hotel employees look on (in amusement). 1A14E52A Blindie loves JT but we're a little worried he may not be able to hold his own in a street smackdown and fear he would probably wind up crying a river. Stick to singing and dancing JT, and oh yeah acting! The triple threat just received his first acting Emmy nomination, for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, and his second Creative Arts Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for his collaboration with Andy Samberg with the song "Motherlover." Timberlake and Samberg won a Creative Emmy in 2007 for the SNL short "D-ck in a Box."
