Metta World Peace

Is Labor Day for Slaves?

Metta World Peace can totally school you on the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day -- but Labor Day is still an issue ... as evidenced by his run-in with the world's worst tutor, aka our camera guy.

You'll recall, Metta made a Memorial Day flub when he posted, "Happy Labor Day" on Twitter -- but the Lakers star has learned a lot since then, telling us... "Memorial's for guys that served and passed away." Great.

But then MWP says, "I still don't know what Labor Day is" -- and you gotta watch Metta and our camera guy work the problem. Their semi-educated guesses include honoring slaves, Mount Rushmore workers, and "people that passed away, maybe laying brick?"

For the record, according to the U.S. Dept. of Labor ... "Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers."

Metta and our camera guy's definitions -- ehhhh ... kinda close.

After watching MWP on Conan the other night I am convinced his opinions and thoughts are without any socially redeeming value.

When is this guy going to learn to just shut up? Every time he opens his mouth, he embarrasses himself. Somebody stop him.

Fact: Shine a light through this guy's left ear, and you'll see light coming out of his right ear.

Wow.I have no words after watching this video.I always knew he was a tard but this video speaks for itself...Maybe instead of wasting his time picking fights on the basketball court,or playing basketball at all,he should read a book or two and educate himself about.....stuff..:-/..Why did he even named himself Metta World Peace if he knows nothing about the World?...or about his own country as a matter of fact....Embarrassing.
