Week 28: Hero – George Clooney

We hate the Daily Mail here – bunch of bigoted bastards, and so, when Clooney took them on and showed them up for what they are, we took off our collective hats and doffed them in his direction.

For those of you not familiar with the story – Old Come To Bed Eyes, is engaged to a Lebanese Woman who comes from a Druze Background.

Never one to pass up an opportunity to engage in a bit of unfounded racial stereotyping – the Mail ran a story suggesting that Clooney’s Mother-in-law to be was unhappy at the prospect of the marriage saying that she would prefer her daughter to marry another Druze.

Clooney was unhappy at this and absolutely rubbished the story, pointing out that his fiancé’s father isn’t a Druze and that the story was a total fabrication. The Daily Mail made the most mealy mouthed of apologies stating that although it was sorry, it stuck by the source of the story – at this point many would have called it a day, not Clooney, he declared in the most cutting way:

“What separates this from all of the ridiculous things the Mail makes up is that now, by their own admission, it can be proved to be a lie. In fact, a premeditated lie, so I thank the Mail for its apology. Not that I would ever accept it, but because in doing so they’ve exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid,” he said.

Hear bloody hear.

Not just a Lebanese Druze woman but number 1 in the ‘Barrister Hottie List’ no less.
