Garofalo -- Reality Bites for Busted Celebs

10/1/2007 12:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Richie be damned, Janeane Garofalo doesn't believe celebs get any special treatment when it comes to DUIs.


TMZ caught the self-described liberal (check out her tattoo!) on a hike to a Hollywood gas station for some popcorn on Saturday, where she told our photog, "They [celebrities] get castigated, joked about, whereas regular citizens have their privacy ... if anything, they get the same amount or more [jail time] just to be made an example of."

She better hope they don't make an example of her new co-star or she'll be out of the job -- Janeane's currently working on "24" with just-busted Kiefer Sutherland.

You people really are a bunch of idiots. I don't agree with every word that comes out of Janeane's mouth, but I'll say this much: she's on more than she's off. But she got so railroaded by the Right during the runup to the war - because she was saying things that turned out to be true - that it just became the "popular wisdom" that she's some kind of nut. So here you are regurgitating the same crap. Why don't you just stick to calling her "ugly" like the bunch of Junior High 40-year-olds that you are, because nobody is ever physically perfect enough for you? You're out of your league criticizing her politics.

Wow, finally someone points out the obvious... Celebrities in trouble do get castigated and mocked relentlessly while regular citizens get to enjoy their personal peccadilloes in private.

Yes, yes, celebrities are already in the public eye so of course it's going to be covered but to think that they deserve weeks of coverage on CNN and the like for doing what all sorts of average every day bozos do is ridiculous. Drunk driving is insane no matter who does it or when, so why lambaste a star when Gary Six-pack is on his third or fourth DUI in Hometown, USA... (Could it be because the peasants love it when their
betters make a mistake?)

And of course she's going to get crucified for saying something so honest and refreshing in the comments section...

I'm ashamed Janeane Garofalo can be called, "Italian."

mecedes #12: You've validated to me, again, two things that I already knew were true. #1. The reason I don't watch CNN. #2. That Janeane Garofalo is a parrot for the left. However, at times, Janeane Garofalo is wearing much more fringe, politically, than CNN seems to be.

Wow, I'm so surprised the jackals are attacking her. I've yet to see more glass house dwellers anywhere else on Earth. Hypocrites.

What a lovely look. What a nasty woman. EEEEEWWWW. God- bathe and use some shampoo. And while you're at it, use something on your face. Or get out of the limelight so we don't have to look at you.
