NEW YORK CITY - The entertainment news media publication Hollywood Innuendo is reporting that Reverend Al Sharpton is extremely upset at the fact that the very first person to be eliminated from this years edition of Dancing With The Stars was Metta World Peace, the basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest.
Rev. Sharpton spoke with Ty Tickler of Hollywood Innuendo and remarked that what a coincidence that out of this years 12 dance contestants that only one was black and that the very first one to be eliminated was as he put it 'the black one.'
He said that now the remaining contestants pretty much all look like they could be part of the Osmond Family, or the Paris Hilton Family, or the Michele Bachmann Family except of course for Carson Kressley who is gay.
Rev. Sharpton pointed out that Judge Len Goodman was especially hard on Metta World Peace when he pointed out that one would think that just by looking at him, one would say that this boy is going to dance up a storm simply because he kinda looks like 50 Cent, Chris Brown, Snoop Doggy Dogg, 2 Live Crew, Run DMC, and MC Hammer, except only a whole lot taller.
Tickler asked Rev. Sharpton if he had spoken to Bernadette Penderlicki, the producer of Dancing With The Stars. He said that he had and that Ms. Penderlicki had told him that she has absolutely no control over how America votes.
Sharpton agreed with her on that but added that she does have some control over what her three judges say and that Goodman "The Grouchy Grouch" went out of his way to really hammer the only black dancer on the show.
Penderlicki responded by telling the reverend that to be perfectly honest she had not even noticed that Mr. Metta World Peace, the former Ron Artest was black.
Sharpton said that if she did not stop lying that her nose was going to grow and she would end up looking like Barbra Streisand, Barry Manilow, or maybe even Sarah Jessica Parker.
He then asked that she conduct a recount of all the votes, which she agreed to do. Rev. Sharpton confided to Ty Tickler that he will most probably be filing charges and hopefully will end up settling out of court.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: My good friend Larry King did point out an interesting fact. He said that in the 13 seasons that Dancing With The Stars has been on the air that not one of the 156 professional dancers has been black.]
