    Kevin James/King Of Queens...

    Kevin James Calls Out Hollywood for Not Defending 'Innocence of Muslims' Filmmaker's Free Speech

    by Christian Toto 15 Oct 2012, 1:00 PM PDT

    Kevin James makes people laugh for a living, both with his long-running sitcom "The King of Queens" and comedy hits like "Paul Blart: Mall Cop."

    When Breitbart News asked him recently about his views on "The Innocence of Muslims," the film the Obama administration blamed for much of the recent unrest in the Middle East, James took the matter seriously.

    We asked James, who visited Denver to promote his latest comedy "Here Comes the Boom," his thoughts on why his Hollywood peers didn't speak out for the free speech rights of the film's creator - no matter how crude or offensive his video may be.

    George Clooney called it "unfortunate" that the First Amendment protected the filmmaker behind the project. Bette Midler suggested the filmmaker should be charged for murder.

    Meanwhile, exhibits like "Piss Christ" get to grace U.S.-based art museums without a critical word from celebrities about its potential to upset Catholics.

    "Unfortunately, welcome to Hollywood," James says. "They don’t want to offend in some cases, but they don’t mind offending in others."

    James says he hasn't seen the video in question - he's been buried in "Boom"-related publicity and film making, and he says he feels awful for the lives lost recently in the Middle East.

    The comedian understands there's a fuzzy line between art and material that offends. He finds "Piss Christ" exhibit "extremely offensive," for example. And he sure didn't want to offend MMA fighters with "Boom," a movie which pays tribute to the blue-collar folks who participate in the sport.

    He doesn't have any easy answers, but he's certainly aware of a double standard existing within the show business community.

    Thank you Kevin James...

    I know you're a Jet fan and read this board... It's nice to see not all of Hollywood is infested with clueless brain dead rat bastard commies...

    Now please help save America and vote for Romney.....

    My sister was friends with Kevin when they were in college, when he was an ordinary dude. I was lucky enough to spend a weekend partying and hanging with him up there and had a blast. He's a one of a kind great dude, the funniest guy you could ever be around, I'm so proud to be able to watch him and his career from afar, these days.

    Hey Fat Boy
    "You are a fat, disgusting, filthy animal who looks like he hasn't taken a shower in 20 Years.

    I mean you look like a guy who lives in mortal fear of soap and water.

    Seriously man, aren't you ashamed to walk around looking and smelling like that?

    Show some friggin pride you filthy animal.

    Its one thing to be morbidly obese (like you), but do you really have to subject people to your filth and what has to be the foulest of odors imaginable.

    Get a f**kin bar of soap, fat @$$, trust me, it won't kill you."


    Still....I miss the Power Ranking.

    Wasn't trying to be funny.

    Lower the Boom looks like one of the worst movies of all time, like another poster mentioned King of Queens was good, but his movies are absolutely terrible.
