Hola, Chilean Miners ... Me Llamo TMZ!

11/21/2010 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We sent one of our camera guys to chat up the Chilean miners as they left the CNN Heroes event in Los Angeles last night. Next time we'll pick a guy who speaks better Spanish.

Who knew being trapped in a mine for over 2 months, makes you become a star.

This is about the SURVIVAL of a doomed group of men stuck one mile below solid rock!5, 20,40, 60 days...I wonder how many of you clowns could stay off face book for 5 days without cutting your wrists? Compared to 80% of our so-called "STARS" - who cannot go 5 hours without a line of blow, a hit of meth or a 24 hour binge on hookers, these guys faced death and held together - They are not "stars" but they are worthy of a good time in LA without some TMZ douchebaig asking (trying) about Mexican beer Corona? Bweeeno-snowshoe-seeeenoir! Mooocho goosto! There is nothing more nauseating than the dork American talking like a complete idiot in Spanish!

Are they survivors? Absolutely. Are they "heroes"? No. Is this going overboard? You better believe it.
What about the survivors of other catastrophes like Katrina, the Haitian earthquake, the '06 tsunami? Why aren't we giving them trips to Universal Studios or something ridiculous like that?
If you exalt anyone/everyone who has been through some horrific ordeal in their lives, we would all be on pedestals side by side with little room to breathe.
I bet poor baby Jessica is kicking herself.

A trip to LA, - a couple nights at the Omni - some American hospitality with a free trip to Universal is hardly exalting!

Katrina peeps sat on their arses waiting & watching the hurricane that was charted with updates minute by minute...They sat for 5 days on their front porch - then storm hit! They spent the next 6 months at the local La Quinta on taxpayer dime waiting for more handouts! Crying poor me! poor me!

A perfect contrast to the two cultures of poverty - A perfect example of how Katrina survivors did nothing to help themselves...

God Bless Sean Penn!

I have to laugh lately at the use of the word "HERO", what a joke! This word has been flung around like a dirty diaper. "HERO" was held back for the chosen few. Now every Tom, **** and Harry is a "HERO".

People, they are a least "SURVIVIORS" at most. They knew that the mine they were working in was unsafe and chose to go in it anyway. PLEASE their 15 minutes of fame are up. PLEASE STOP ALREADY...

Definition of the word "HERO": A person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his/her brave deeds and noble qualities.

Everybody here, get over yourselves. You're at a fracking gossip website bitching over whether these guys are heroes or not. Don't you all have some cheetos and fourloko to pick up at the minimart. The real story is how the hell does TMZ not have one "reporter" that speaks spanish. In Los Angeles no less.

#5 I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU.... AND FOR ALL YOU OTHER RACIST PRICKS, **** OFF....THEY AREN'T HEROS, BUT THEY ARE TRUE SURVIVERS.... AND FOR NUMBER #10, SINCE YOU PROBABLY LOOKED UP THE WORD "HERO" IN A DICTIONARY, YOU SHOULD READ IT AGAIN AND STUDYING, YOU DUMB ASS. BECAUSE THEY ARE "CHILEAN", NOT "CHILIAN" I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE **** "CHILIAN" MEANS....
