Jim Carrey pokes fun at Big Ben

jim-carrey.jpgIn 24 hours, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will learn whether his month-long nightmare will end — or whether it’s just beginning.  During what could be his last day of stomach churning, actor and comedian Jim Carrey has taken a pot shot at Big Ben, Twitter style.

Said Carrey, via the New York Daily News:  “Well, I ate my inoffensive sandwich with an
acceptable glass of milk and took the dogs out, while avoiding any
controversial though
t, then I was sexually assaulted by Ben
Roethlisberger!  I can’t be certain but it sure looked like him!  Good
thing I’m a Steelers fan!

Jim?  We’ve always thought you were funny — but only when someone else is writing your material.

    Hello pot, meet kettle.

    Personally, I think that is hilarious:)…
    Can’t wait to see the picketers at Heinz Field this year.

  3. GoBrowns19 says: Apr 11, 2010 2:04 PM

    Yeah…if I tweetered, and wrote that, I’d be embarrassed as soon as I hit send. Just goes to show you how important writers are to a comedic actor’s career. I, on the other hand, can act and am naturally funny. Too bad I’m a dope.

  4. Buck Stallion says: Apr 11, 2010 2:05 PM

    Perhaps he is on drugs. He just ripped Tiger’s wife earlier in the day. That wasn’t funny either.

  5. Sporkdevil says: Apr 11, 2010 2:05 PM

    How is there no bending over and talking out of his ass comment? That’s a big miss by Florio.

  6. emdub52 says: Apr 11, 2010 2:06 PM

    Speak for yourself Florio… I thought that was very funny. Not as funny as South Park making fun of Big Ben but funny non the less.

  7. Child_Please! says: Apr 11, 2010 2:06 PM

    Warning:
    All college aged females should run whenever you encounter Big Ben Rapistberger.
    He is known to troll college campus bars with his enablers, looking for naive girls to assault.

  8. Bill.Polian says: Apr 11, 2010 2:07 PM

    I’m not surprised that Rapistberger has moved on to assaulting men too. He fits in well in Pittsburgh.

  9. Mr. Irrelevant says: Apr 11, 2010 2:07 PM

    We only like you when someone else is writing your material too, Florio

    jim carrey like you have room to talk…. you left your wife when you became famous for that Lauren holly chick and then you dump her for a 20 something and now we have learned you just FAILED with Jenny Mccarthy!! Yeah Mr. Carrey you are quite the saint yourself!! You really have room to talk!!

  13. kiDDD says: Apr 11, 2010 2:11 PM

    Lighten up.. that was hella funny…

  14. Martin Keamy says: Apr 11, 2010 2:11 PM

    I laughed at it. Your pot shot at Carrey was wayyy worse, Florio

  15. trickbunny says: Apr 11, 2010 2:12 PM

    Jim Carrey, born nowhere near, nor ever lived anywhere near, Pittsburgh. Yes, I wiki’ed him.
    Another bandwagon Steelers fan. You know, like 80% of them.

  16. po knows football says: Apr 11, 2010 2:15 PM

    I don’t think someone like Mike Florio should ever be taking pot shots at someone’s comedic skills.. or maybe he really does think 15 year old Seinfeld jokes are still funny.

  17. milehiclown says: Apr 11, 2010 2:16 PM

    Humor is subjective.

  18. Pantherfan10 says: Apr 11, 2010 2:18 PM

    Jim’s the man and Florio is lame

  19. robert ethan says: Apr 11, 2010 2:19 PM

    We’re still waiting for the punch line, Jim.
    Maybe it was that line about being a Steeler fan.

  20. CaptainFantastik says: Apr 11, 2010 2:19 PM

    LOL at the Steelers haters. How they love putting their ignorance on display. Of course when challenged to present any evidence whatsoever to justify their “rapistberger” comments they fall silent………intellectually over-matched.

  21. downwithdansnyder says: Apr 11, 2010 2:20 PM

    Yeh, Jim Cary also apparently ragged on Tiger Woods wife…for not paying attention and probably ignoring “obvious” warning signs. what an a$$. Why does anyone care what Jim Cary has to say when he’s not acting like an idiot on-screen?

  22. Occam says: Apr 11, 2010 2:23 PM

    That’s the first time Jim Carey made me laugh since 1997.

  23. robert ethan says: Apr 11, 2010 2:23 PM

    Luckily for Carrey, Twitter jokes aren’t “held for approval by the blog owner”. None of them would see the light of day.

  24. Byrd Is The Word says: Apr 11, 2010 2:24 PM

    Big words for someone who just broke up with Jenny McCarthy.

  25. holycow says: Apr 11, 2010 2:24 PM

    Tell us that “Marco Polo” joke again, Florio. That was awesome.

  26. Cereal Blogger says: Apr 11, 2010 2:25 PM

    Very funny

  27. The Wishbone says: Apr 11, 2010 2:26 PM

    He’s still funnier than you, Florio. That must suck.

  28. Dixon29 says: Apr 11, 2010 2:27 PM

    Yeah this is hilarious. (Sarcasm).
    There is a woman in Milledgeville GA who could seriously have emotional damage for the rest of her life and Jim Carrey thinks it is appropriate to Tweet about this?
    Someone should ask Jim Carrey if his wife or daughter was sexually assaulted if he would find it appropriate for others to joke about.
    Anyone who thinks he is being funny is a monster.
    What an idiot, plain and simple

  29. P-Slice says: Apr 11, 2010 2:32 PM

    Very funny.

  30. FLYBOY says: Apr 11, 2010 2:37 PM

    I heard that Carrey had just eaten a “Ruthlessonfurburger” burger, shipped to him directly from Heinz, so he apparently became completely focused on vagina, hence his focus and attempt at humor fell short.

  31. robert ethan says: Apr 11, 2010 2:38 PM

    Like most avid amateur golfers, Ben tries to emulate Tiger Woods.
    But he scuffed his shot without even getting off the driving tee.

  32. EdBurns666 says: Apr 11, 2010 2:39 PM

    And this is news for what reason???

  33. VoxUcker says: Apr 11, 2010 2:41 PM

    That’s about what I’d expect from a guy who made a career out of playing simple-minded retards in fart-humor themed movies, and from the people who think that qualifies as high comedy.

  34. flatstanley says: Apr 11, 2010 2:44 PM

    “all righty then’

  35. Bob S. says: Apr 11, 2010 2:47 PM

    Carrey is a homer and a Toronto Argonauts and Toronto Maple Leaves fan – that tells it all.

  36. Martin Keamy says: Apr 11, 2010 2:48 PM

    @po knows football
    Sticking up for my man, Mr. Florio.
    Seinfeld jokes ARE still funny… You just have to have some degree of intelligence to understand them. I’m going to venture a guess and assume you’re favorite movie are the brainless “Not Another Teen Movie” or the self-describing “Superbad”.

  37. subadai says: Apr 11, 2010 2:54 PM

    Whats’ “Twitter?”

  38. Xpensive Wino says: Apr 11, 2010 2:58 PM

    Just want to be clear. If some dope comments and calls him Rapistberger or makes some other inane comment that people may or may not think is funny, that’s ok……….but if Jim Carrey says something, that’s not ok?
    And why is that people arbitrarily decide when someone who makes his living as a comedian is being funny/tongue in cheek and making social commentary as opposed to being dead serious when they don’t agree with what they say?
    Wy are famous people held to a different standard? He’s a just a dude…………..rich f-ing dude, but just a dude.

  39. Lance19 says: Apr 11, 2010 2:59 PM

    I’m lost here:
    WHAT exactly is Carrey’s joke?
    Does tweeting it somehow make it
    funnier than the turd it appears to be?

  40. bigtrav425 says: Apr 11, 2010 3:02 PM

    lmao..i thought it was funny!

  41. robert ethan says: Apr 11, 2010 3:05 PM

    Further confirmation that only twits Tweet.

  42. SFrancis1680 says: Apr 11, 2010 3:06 PM

    FLORIO, IF you didn’t think the comment wasn’t funny, what was the point in posting it?… I know, it mentioned Ben so it’s good for at least 100 comments. right? …besides, it’s understadable that he’s not funny, having just split from Jenny McCarthy, what’s your excuse FLORIO?

  43. C.Bass says: Apr 11, 2010 3:06 PM

    Is it me or are the Steeler-haters getting dumber?
    Ben is innocent. You’ll have to get lives now. Good luck.

    That pitch was so soft it’s almost no fun to hit.

  48. robert ethan says: Apr 11, 2010 3:10 PM

    Ruthless hit on the dogs first. When they growled, he told them “F**k off then, bitches!”, and went after Carrey.

  49. BlondBlueDevils says: Apr 11, 2010 3:10 PM

    That’s almost as funny as Tina Faye last night:
    “Are you smarter than a half term Governor”?
    “The Tea Party’s Wheel of Fortune”.
    HA HA HA

  50. BonnieD says: Apr 11, 2010 3:11 PM

    We pretend, in America, that we treat women so much better than in other countries, but it’s a lie. Here a woman has been assaulted and she is the one who is the butt of the jokes. Are we that much different than any of these other countries we criticize for poor women’s rights?

  51. Playoffs?! says: Apr 11, 2010 3:12 PM

    I didn’t think it was that funny but he’s still WAY funnier than Florio ever will be…

  52. ItalianArmyGuy says: Apr 11, 2010 3:12 PM

    Actually, Carey has a good point. It’s not as if the accuser was sitting at home drinking a warm glass of milk. She allegedly used a fake ID to worm her way into the back of a roped off VIP lounge with her drunk sorority sisters. Allegedly not the first time they had done this.
    Part of his joke is pointed at the accuser.

  53. HandsofSweed says: Apr 11, 2010 3:13 PM

    Trickbunny:
    Every fan that has ever rooted for any team in any sport was a bandwagon fan at one point. When you begin rooting for a team, you are climbing on the bandwagon. The difference is, Steeler fans never leave the bandwagon. I was a Steeler bandwagon fan at 5.5 yrs old on Jan. 20, 1980. Thirty years later, I am still riding the same wagon.
    You more than likely have a very similar story, just with a different team. We respect that, because we understand it. Good luck to your squad this season and may you never leave your bandwagon in your teams’ lean years when they happen.

  54. trademcscab says: Apr 11, 2010 3:18 PM

    @Dixon29…………. ur an idiot….get off ur all women are victims horse and lets go back in time to reflect on all the skanky college girls weve all met in our lives and then reflect on the amount of nasty hooker college girls that whore around every night at bars……..she was just a casualtie of war

  55. Nambla Limbaugh says: Apr 11, 2010 3:18 PM

    That was hilarious but dopey stiller fan won’t be angry at Carrey because now they all think he really is a stiller fan. Way to throw the inbreds off the trail, pet detective!

    He said he was a steelers fan and most steeler fans dont care about that woman in Georgia….only that ben will be on the field and is not charged!!!

    “Seinfeld jokes ARE still funny… You just have to have some degree of intelligence to understand them.”
    True that Seinfeld jokes are still funny.
    How much intelligence a person needs to watch TV and understand a simple joke is debatable.

    All Roethlisberger jokes go here.
    Even the funny ones.

  66. BigBear123 says: Apr 11, 2010 3:43 PM

    Carrey split from Jenny McCarthy earlier this week so he is likely going to have a few more bitter comments.

  67. Steeler-lady says: Apr 11, 2010 3:48 PM

    i found it more to be a shot against the accuser… she couldnt be sure it was Ben either..Not til she looked up his stats…LMAO

  68. Ravenmaniac says: Apr 11, 2010 4:04 PM

    Since Carrey split from Jen Mccarthy he figured he would take it out on another Jen…..

  69. Deb says: Apr 11, 2010 4:08 PM

    @Ravenmaniac …
    Well, you’re again putting your perceived omnipotence on display. So you know there is a victim in Georgia, do you? How, pray tell?
    I would say you don’t give a damn whether a man’s been falsely accused so long as you can take another shot at Steeler fans.

  70. momar3000 says: Apr 11, 2010 4:16 PM

    Jim Carrey is a steelers fan? :(
    Guess i gotta go throw out all his movies….

  71. nosferatu says: Apr 11, 2010 4:19 PM

    This guy hasn’t been funny for over a decade and comes off like a f’n douche bag. Hey Carey maybe you need to go back to writing yourself fake checks for a billion dollars and living in your car. Now go away and take your annoying plastic wife with you.

  72. Rogue says: Apr 11, 2010 4:22 PM

    This blog is as bad as the enguirer.

  73. Buffalo says: Apr 11, 2010 4:23 PM

    We will learn his fate in 24 hours? hey Mike Florio you do realize they said he won’t be charged so why do you keep saying we have to wait and see !.
    First of all he’s innocent and that girls story didn’t everybody shut up !.

  74. Deb says: Apr 11, 2010 4:32 PM

    Crap, Ravenmaniac, I meant to say omniscience instead of omnipotence–all knowing instead of all powerful.
    What IS it with you? OF COURSE, I’m concerned about that girl in Georgia. I want to know WHAT she’s alleged–which has never been specified–and why. If no charges are being filed, I want to know why the DA reached that decision. The evidence in Nevada shows Andrea McNulty is a deceitful extortionist, and if there were any justice, both she and Calvin Dunlap would wind up in jail. But I don’t know what the situation is in Georgia. Even if Ben is innocent, she could still be a pitiful, confused girl who was drunk out of her skull and influenced by knowledge of McNulty’s accusation. Until we hear what Bright has to say, we don’t know. But you are just WRONG to say none of the Steeler fans care. Please stop being an ASS. It’s beneath you.

  75. EskinSux says: Apr 11, 2010 4:36 PM

    Deb…please like I want to see an innocent man go to jail for the sake of bashing steeler fans?
    What if ben got her drunk first?? Do you know that didnt happen???? You have spent all of your time being the know all defender of ben…Maybe she is a victim, any evidence for ben that says he didnt get her drunk?
    While I hope ben did not force her to do anything…everyone talks about her being so intoxicated….is it morally ok for ben to “sexually manipulate” (isnt this the term you constantly repeat) her in a bathroom or anywhere else while she is in this condition….even if she went into the bathroom on her own…is that really ok Deb?? Maybe she is a victim….
    I am sure the DA will announce tomorrow that he will not pursue charges…just remember that does NOT mean that your boy is innocent. But wait you already know that….who am I telling….I am silly…
    You have some nerve…the queen of self-righteousness, I read your posts on here as you constantly tell everyone else that they do not know the details of what happened that night and telling anyone who does not agree with you that they are stupid or silly….but anyone who does agree with you is a good fan (I didnt say classy). Really Deb enough is enough..
    How do you know all of the details? Were you there????
    Please submit your 10 paragraph reply now……

    I’d check into the who actually wrote/produce a lot of Carrey’s movies. You might find his name all over it.
    In fact, there’s no might about it. If you enjoyed a Jim Carrey movie, you enjoyed Jim Carrey’s writing.

    Ah don’t be so overly-sensitive Dixon. If you have ever seen SNL, MadTV, Chapelle Show, Jay Leno, Letterman, and basically 95% of the standup acts out there, you should realize that this is what their material consists of. I think it’s pretty damn funny.

    even as a steeler fan I have no problem with Big Ben jokes–laughed myself silly when the new south park had him in it– but this joke is just stupid. Carrey, sniff a permenant marker, than write your material.

  91. AbeFreshly says: Apr 11, 2010 7:16 PM

    I have always thought of Jenny McCarthy as a female version of Jim Carey. She burps, farts, picks her nose, publishes pics of herself sitting on the toilet, etc. It’s almost as if she is trying to see if she can gross you out soooo badly, that you will no longer find her attractive. BUT, she goes out of her way to look as hot as possible WHILE she’s trying to gross you out.
    That’s an evil little game she plays!
    Jim, on the other hand, just likes to gross you out.

  92. Deb says: Apr 11, 2010 7:26 PM

    @Ravenmaniac …
    Well, I guess you’re not going to stop being an ass. You mean my 10-paragraph reply to your 10-paragraph reply? Still struggling with that splinter/beam thing, huh? Nice circuitous response, but as you well know, I was addressing this and only this: “He said he was a steelers fan and most steeler fans dont care about that woman in Georgia….only that ben will be on the field and is not charged!!!”
    My response was CLEARLY based on the premise that Ben is innocent U.S. law provides that the accused is innocent until proved guilty, and no proof of guilt has so far been produced. All my posts have been based SOLELY on the material thus far provided by the authorities, not the speculation you love to indulge. The term “sexually manipulated” is the accusation as stated in the police incident report. That’s why I use it.
    The post which sent you ballistic was one in which I tried to explain why I might still be concerned about the Georgia accuser even if the DA says it’s a false accusation. It’s possible she was confused by alcohol consumption rather than seeking attention or money.
    No, I do not believe ANY man is responsible for “getting” a consenting 20-year-old woman drunk no matter how many drinks he bought. Women need to take responsibility for their own bodies and choices. If you choose to consume alcohol, you are responsible for your actions. He’s a football player, not a hypnotist. A 20-year-old woman is fully capable of turning down drinks and an invitation to the bathroom.
    Ben is not “my boy.” He is an innocent man in the eyes of the law until evidence proves otherwise. The so-called Court of Public Opinion is nothing more than a nice phrase for mob mentality. And I don’t have much respect for pitchfork-wielding mobs who can’t be bothered with little things like evidence. If that makes me the nervy queen of self-righteousness, so be it. This isn’t about football for me, it’s about right and wrong, and I’ve weathered harsher punishments than your scorn for my convictions.
    I don’t think people who disagree with me are stupid or silly. I think people who make up melodramatic scenarios about the girl on the bathroom floor (cue the “Perils of Pauline” piano) when they don’t even know what the woman accused Ben of doing to her are silly and stupid. It doesn’t have anything to do with being a good fan, it has to do with being a logical grownup who can stop slobbering and stick to the facts as known until he knows more. Really, Ravenmaniac, enough is enough.
    Six paragraphs. Sorry to shortchange you.

    LOL at the Steelers haters. How they love putting their ignorance on display. Of course when challenged to present any evidence whatsoever to justify their “rapistberger” comments they fall silent………intellectually over-matched.
    ———————————————-
    The moronic irony of your statement is that Steeler fans are at the forefront of those who have reveled in making reference to Ray Lewis as a murderer for over a decade.
    Speaking of being intellectually overmatched………………………………………

    In case you all forgot:
    Ray Lewis: Convicted of obstruction of justice in a double murder case. Got off EASY. He’s lucky to not still be in prison.
    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/features/bloody_monday/news/2000/02/25/part1/
    Jamal Lewis: Convicted of cocaine trafficking, committing the crime the year the Ravens won the superbowl. Sentenced to only 4 months in prison when it could have been 10 years.
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=1976064
    Thats ancient history though right? Nope. They just signed Donte Stallworth, who killed someone while driving drunk and then got only a 30 day jail sentence.
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4921333
    Anyone else find it ironic to see all the Ravens fans trolling on all the big Ben posts?
    Yet the Ravens organization is linked to at least 3 major convictions in the past decade, including their franchise’s best player of all time.
    You’d think they’d at least wait till Ben is formally charged with anything.

    I didn’t get it. Was he empathizing with the drunken 20 year old college girl? Or was he being sarcastic about the circumstances of the alleged incident? After all, he said he was a Steelers fan, he can’t be all bad. So is Rush Limbaugh, incidentally.
    Yes, the Steelers do assault men. Only it happens on the football field, at least 16 times a year.
    GO STEELERS!

    I thought that South Park episode was hilarious, too, but I’ve never gotten Jim Carrey’s humor. Can’t think of a single thing he’s ever done that I’ve liked.
    @this class sucks …
    Thanks for all the support today. To me these are big picture issues about due process, character assassination, trial by media, and the organized victimization of women by teaching them whatever they do under the influence is someone else’s responsibility. But trying to get other people to believe that is like beating my head against a tree.

    “Here a woman has been assaulted and she is the one who is the butt of the jokes.” Says who? A woman has accused someone of sexual assault. Two totally different things lady. Wait until tomorrow afternoon and then let’s see what goes down. A woman has also falsely accused Ben of rape but that does not mean a woman has been raped. You, RebaT and trickbunny are going to be the butt of many jokes tomorrow. I wish stupidity was painful because you 3 would be in body casts.

    lol and yes ravenmaniac if the d.a states there just isnt anything to clarify guilt.. he is in fact INNOCENT.

    Here we go again! Guys who call Big Ben a rapist never got sexually satisfied by a college women! These guys married the first girl they kissed, who weighed over 250lbs, never went to college party, always studied and whacked off every weekend! Now they work at McDonalds, have 3 brats and their wives won’t allow them to do anything! In fact these guys who write false info about Ben, their wives allow them 10 minutes on the computer a night!

  107. nozzleman454 says: Apr 11, 2010 10:39 PM

    I dont think this was a poke at Big Ben but more of a poke at his accuser. Its in the end of the tweet where he said Im not sure but I think it was Big Ben. Exactly what she said.

  108. Jamson64 says: Apr 11, 2010 10:39 PM

    Interesting to see so many people turn into scum over this. They will trash both parties mercifully without knowing the facts for whatever reasons. Truly sickening.

  109. tryagain says: Apr 11, 2010 10:39 PM

    It seems some are taking issue with the ‘court of public opinion’ comments in regards to Ben and I find that kind of surprising.
    I’m probably always (or at least for a long time) going to have a negative opinion of Ben and I’m sure there’s lots of other folks who feel the same way. It doesn’t even really matter if he’s charged, guilty or neither because he’s still at the least a little moronic. And by moronic, I mean not smart enough to figure out after the incident last year that getting a bj (or whatever) in the bathroom of a college bar isn’t a good idea- at some point you have to think things through and consider the potential negative outcomes regardless of how good it might feel. But at 28, I don’t think Ben can and that, in itself, is pathetic.
    So no, I’m not going to be a fan anytime soon, but I’m also not going to go hunt him down and torture him in some underground dungeon. I guess my point is, I think a general distaste for Ben is pretty justified at this point and should be expected.

    Deb…..ahhh come on…if you wont stop being an ASS why should I??? Oh that’s right because I am not totally agreeing with everything you say so that makes me an ass….
    You are saying the same things that you accuse everyone else of saying. How do you know that no proof of guilt has been provided…is the police department keeping you in the loop???? Are they supposed to let everyone know if they have proof? This is what I am talking about with your posts….you tell all of us that we are asses for assuming things about this case….you are doing the same thing!!! None of us really know what has happened to this point with this case…including you.
    In the one post I put out there, I said that “most” steeler fans only care that ben is on the field and not charged….I was speaking of individuals that used the word innocent as soon as they heard that the DA would not be bringing charges, not you. This apparently made you ballistic.
    In one sentence you say that you were concerned for her because maybe she was confused by alcohol consumption…in another sentence you say that a 20 year old is capable of turning down drinks and a trip to the bathroom…..well, maybe she was just confused by alcohol consumption….
    Please Deb…none of your posts affect me so much that they make me ballistic! Maybe I missed some of your previous posts but this is the first time I recall you saying that you were concerned about this girl. I only recall your relentless defense of ben.
    Like I said, I really hope that this is not true. Having a daughter who will be attending her first year of college next year, I would hate to think of something like what is being purported here happening to her.
    I would imagine there are many women out there that let themselves be swayed by sport celebrity and I know there are sport celebrities that use this to their advantage….this is not the first time ben is being accused of such a crime…just makes me wonder if ben is one of those guys….

  112. CaptainFantastik says: Apr 11, 2010 10:51 PM

    @ Therealshuxion,
    and let me guess……Brady totally respects women. That’s why he knocks them up and leaves them the moment he spots another piece of tail. Just watch….Brady will be exposed as the next Tiger Woods. Only this time nobody will be surprised because everybody knows Brady is a dog. Ben’s no Saint either but we already knew that.
    Oh, and don’t hate on Steelers fans just because we’ve thoroughly owned you on the subject of Spy Gate. Caught red-handed and disciplined as the cheaters they are. And they will always be remembered as such.

    @Ravenmaniac …
    No, I do not believe ANY man is responsible for “getting” a consenting 20-year-old woman drunk no matter how many drinks he bought. Women need to take responsibility for their own bodies and choices. If you choose to consume alcohol, you are responsible for your actions. He’s a football player, not a hypnotist. A 20-year-old woman is fully capable of turning down drinks and an invitation to the bathroom.
    ___________________________________
    I agree realistically. But in the eyes of the law if he knowingly purchased drinks for an underage girl, he may be held responsible, no?
    Also…most women will NOT agree with the extension of “being responsible for their own bodies and choices” when it comes to this…a woman who deliberately gets pregnant while she knows her man doesn’t want kids…I view that the same way. SHE made the choice to be pregnant…and then the keep the baby why should the man LEGALLY have to pay any support?

  116. Randall says: Apr 12, 2010 12:54 PM

    Jim must be getting desperate for publicity. Or maybe getting dumped by Jenny McCarthy makes a man act stupid.

  117. Deb says: Apr 12, 2010 2:47 PM

    @CKL …
    I absolutely agree with you on the pregnancy issue. BUT … a man is also responsible for his body and choices. That means if he doesn’t want to have a child, he shouldn’t leave the birth control up to the woman. He should wear a condom or have a vasectomy.

  118. Deb says: Apr 12, 2010 3:17 PM

    @Ravenmaniac …
    I’m still listening to DA Bright’s press conference online, but I’m going to answer your last comment as it stands based on what we knew last night.
    Finally! I’ve long suspected you were the father of a daughter about this woman’s age. That explains your irrationality on some of these issues. I take it you do not have a son. I have a niece and nephew–1st and 2nd graders–I’d die or kill to protect. So I’m equally concerned about how these issues affect both males and females.
    When I said no proof of guilt has been provided, I meant provided to the public.
    You’re right that my reaction to your post was knee-jerk. You did say “some” Steeler fans–which, unfortunately, is accurate. I shouldn’t have jumped on that or taken it personally. I apologize. I was being an ass.
    I have expressed concern for the girl. I have condemned Ben’s foolish, immature behavior. My relentless defense has not been of Ben but of the principle that he not be condemned as a “rapist” until the courts proclaim him so.
    His being a sports star isn’t the issue. As the DA just said, alcohol is the issue. I don’t drink, but I enjoyed my college party days. And once I had too much to drink and next thing I knew, some older guy pulled me into a private area and was all over me. I wasn’t at all attracted to him, but offered ZERO resistance. Thankfully, my friend rescued me and the only thing that happened was some groping and slobbering.
    So whose fault was that? MINE. That’s not a popular thing to say at a time when college women are taught that it’s always a man’s fault. Well, I chose to drink. Fortunately, I also had the good sense to ask a sober friend to look out for me. Women can’t pick and choose when they want responsibility for their bodies. It’s all or nothing. Please, please, please make sure your daughter understands that. If you drink yourself into oblivion, bad things will happen.

  119. .RebaT says: Apr 12, 2010 4:04 PM

    That’s it Jim. Crank up the heat on Ben. Maybe others like him will keep this issue in the limelight for a long time. It will be hard to put this into the past for Ben with this going on. That’s it entertainment world.. keep it going and going and going and going and going. The Rooneys certainly wouldn’t like that very much. Well, T O O BAD!!
    Oh yeah, and Deb, just because a girl drinks doesn’t mean or imply she’s “asking for it.” What a comment from a woman!
    OJ, Jr just walked free.

    BonnieD: Go to another country or google some of them. You’ll find out quickly how poorly women are treated elsewhere. Try the Middle East for starters.
