Larry King -- Royally Ticked Off

7/8/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One panhandler learned a tough lesson last night -- don't push your luck with the King!

Larry King: Click to watch
Larry King gave one dude $5 outside Mastro's, and when the guy had the stones to ask for more, the 75-year-old talk show host was clearly POed.

Maybe he was just crabby from holding his wife's purse all night.

Larry King sucks.. he can never get the people's name right that he is interviewing. The other day when he was at Neverland with Jermaine, he called him Michael. Then last night he called Michael, Mikael. What is going on with CNN? Get rid of him already. He makes CNN look stupid. He messes up someones name at least 3 times every show. The guy is a joke. Put someone else in his place (Anderson Cooper would be a great replacement!)

Larry King really needs to go--he can never get names & facts right. CNN should hand it over to Carl Anderson.

I guess the guy never heard the line "Beggars can't be choosers". He was lucky to $5.00.

What?    

Overly exaggerated. All the old man did was stated the amount he had already given him, frown, and walked away. TMZ lead viewers to believe KIng let loose a string of expletives or something. Anyway, we are living in recessionary times, what can he do w/ $5? Whatever, folks.....................

That beggar should have been greatful he got anything at all. That's why I don't give bums any money anymore - they think once they get a few bucks there is a never ending cash machine attached to it.

Worthless guy needs to get a job and quit begging for money. BK & MCD is always hiring.

Way to go Larry. I am not a fan but in this case you were awesome.

King will probably outlive everybody. When he does go, CNN will have him embalmed & sitting at that desk.........suspenders and all....he already looks like a corpse.

I love to help people, but if someone has to complain or moan about 5 bucks not being enough....then thats a real shame. Sure, 5 bucks won't buy a lot of alcohol, won't buy a home, won't buy a car....but its the thought that counts....even if larry king is rich, some rich people don't give at all. Be grateful. If i had someone come up to me and tip me 5 bucks for nothing id be pretty dang happy! Hell 5 bucks is enough to go play some video lotto and hope you win LOL. But seriously, most bums just want booze. OR they aren't bums at all but are just panhandling....some people make millions faking to be bums!
