Fails Of The Week: Rush Limbaugh, Mathew Knowles And More
Who: Controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh
What: Going on a tirade against the idea of Sony casting Idris Elba as the next James Bond. “James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was,” Limbaugh said. “But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably point this out.”
Redemption: Shutting up.
