Christoph Waltz

SHOTS FIRED

During Cannes Interview

Cannes_Shooting
Utter mayhem at Cannes moments ago ... gun shots rang out in the middle of an interview with Christoph Waltz, and all hell broke loose.

Waltz was on the set of a French news program called Le Grand Journal when the shots were fired, and security whisked him off stage. The rest of the audience rushed the set in panic.

You can't really hear the shots in the video ... but witnesses are saying they came from a man with a gun. There are reports the shots fired were blanks.

The man has since been apprehended by police. No one was injured.

It's been a crazy day at Cannes -- last night, a jewelry company was robbed while hosting a fancy ball at the film festival ... thieves reportedly stole $1 million worth of jewelry.

"Utter mayhem"... bull. It was not.

"hell broke loose", another lie.

Just tell the story. Shots were fired and people walked away at 3/4 speed...or the truth isn't enough?

"You can't really hear the shots in the video ... but witnesses are saying they came from a man with a gun." So the shots came from a man with a gun, you say? Um, ok.

It was probably Obama just doing it to distract everybody from the media for finally exposing him for the liar he is. Who would have thought we would have a president telling the IRS to audit people who objected to his ideas. The biggest fraud to ever occupy the White House.

As long as he didn't shoot Christopher, it's all good. I mean, he's only shooting the French.
