Morgan Freeman

TAKES A SHOT

at Zach Braff

Morgan Freeman ain't happy with Zach Braff -- and last night, the Hollywood legend told TMZ ... the "Scrubs" actor SCREWED UP BIG TIME when he went to the Internet and said M.F. was a fraud.

The back story is a little complicated -- but we'll boil it down for you ...

Braff has been under fire recently for launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new movie he wants to make. Critics say Braff is abusing Kickstarter -- a crowdfunding website -- because it's intended to help struggling entrepreneurs who generally don't have access to people with deep pockets ... not huge, rich stars like Zach.

So ... Braff hosted an online Q&A session to address the controversy -- and, while trying to explain the importance of being honest with his fans, dragged Freeman into the controversy.

"People can smell bulls**t a mile away ... look at what happened when Morgan Freeman did that AMA on reddit," Braff said.

FYI -- an AMA (or Ask Me Anything) is an online chat session where the person agrees to personally and honestly answer ANYTHING from fans. After Freeman's lackluster AMA session recently, people suspected Freeman's rep was actually answering the questions for him.

"There was huge backlash because it was so clearly a film publicist answering for [Freeman]," Braff said.

Last night, Freeman finally responded to Braff's allegations -- and it's clear, Freeman no likey.

I'm sorry, what's a Zack Braff? He looks like an old alcoholic to me.

I can't stand either of these douchewagons but if I had to pick a side I'd get Morgan Freeman's back.

What a stupid headline. That's taking a shot? Morgan only said not the best idea - hardly a shot..

Zach Braff isn't fit to be mentioned in the same sentence as Morgan Freeman anyway.

The problem with Braff is that he played a quirky, lovable character on a tv show--but that's not him in real life.

Zach Braff is an AssHoIe in Real Life and He should leave Morgan Freeman Old Oscar Winner's Butt alone, M-Freeman is a Good Man and He has kept a Clean Record All of His Life and We all know when You are a Dark Man and have Lived for that Long that is NOT Easy...

Used to like you, Zack, but misusing KickStarter because you're a cheap slob is disgusting, but more disgusting is maligning Morgan Freeman.

I love Morgan Freeman, and Zach Braff annoys me. However, the evidence is pretty overwhelming that Morgan did NOT do the AMA himself. So Zach is right in this case.

Zach Braff is totally screwing up Kickstarter for the little guys. I'm part of a group of college kids that were on America's Got Talent a couple of years ago called FIGHTING GRAVITY and we're doing a Kickstarter project to help us create our own show in New York City. We had a blast doing an AMA on Reddit last week. If you like supporting the little guys and want to see something new, unique and awesome - please check out FIGHTING GRAVITY on Kickstarter! http://kck.st/11jBoSM
