Wesley Snipes owed the IRS $7 million, yeah thats right SEVEN MILLION going back to 1999. He didn't pay a dime of that nor did he arrange a payment plan to get rid of the debt. He thought his accountant was clever trying to take advantage of a loophole, well that loophole put him in jail.

It feels like forever since we heard about this guy. You know he did his time straight, since there was barely even a word about him in there, as opposed to an other "famous" inmate who can't seem to stop crying about it...

Why isn't Lindsay Lohan in prison? That white bitch belongs there more than Wesley Snipes, who is being made an example because he is black. Need to switch lawyers between LiLo and Wes Snipes.

Why is everyone on here making it a race issue. He wasnt sent to prison or made an example of because he's black, he's a tax evader. This country would be better if ppl didn't look for the race issue in everything
