You all need to be slapped for even approaching an actor of his caliber with your infantile, stupid, jack-ass antics. Where's your respect, you morons?

He is such a racist. He totally hates white people. I can't stand the old bastard and refuse to watch anything that he is in.

yeah....and?    

TMZ, is anyone off limits to you guys?

The class just rolls off this man, the achievments alone for the black community are countless. And then you have yyyuuuuzzz guys asking him a nonsense verbal vomit question, keeping silent just shows how much dignity he has ooozzzing out of him.

Oh well, in his 82 years I imagine he has come up against worse. Oh, and his movies are wonderful. My goodness what a giant, good person he is, an icon to me.

Now shut those pie holes! Those paps are not good enough to shine his shoes!

SteveO, we need you to pack up and get back to the trailer park with your ignorance. You give Americans a bad name with your idiocy.
