Come off it already TMZ. NO ONE CARES. It's cute that you're trying to make a real headline news organization but this is horribly misplaced attention. Stick to what you do best and keep being everyone's guilty pleasure.

Geezus, give it a rest already. What NT did was probably not the wisest thing, but maybe you should put your journalists on something bigger? LIke trying to find Politicians committing fraud?

Bash a Pap    

Saw these guys in Memphis last year... AMAZING!!!

But uh... TMZ... why are you bashing these guys for playing a paid gig? It's not like they were the ones who defrauded the government out of our tax money... it was the bank douche tards.

This is different than the Sheryl Crow situation. These guys are black and black people have never been given retribution for 400yrs. of slavery. They and other black people deserve some of the white taxpayer dollars.

He didn't look that uncomfortable to me at all. I thought he was very cool - toward the question and the pap.

TMZ you are losing respect by keeping this stupid story going.

1. Northern Trust DIDN'T WANT THE MONEY
2. Northern Trust is a business, just like other businesses, they need to advertise to grow their business
3. They are the main sponsor of a PGA Tournement.... FEDEX also sponsors a Tornement,Accenture sponsors a tornement....many many other businesses sponsor these things.
4. Northern Trust didn't use tax payer money to pay for this
5. they don't need a bail out and didn't want the money
6. they didn't want the money
7. they didn't want the money
8. they didn't want the money

If I see one more non-story about Northern Trust, I won't be back to your site. Stick to celebrity gossip, thats why we come here, not this bs.
