‘Punk A** F*ggot!’: Documentary Trailer Includes Slur-Shouting Al Sharpton
Apparently, the Rev. Al Sharpton was a regular guest on the program. And apparently, he wasn’t as “sensitive” back then. TSG explains:
For us, though, the highlight of the the trailer for “Évocateur” is the brief time capsule look at Al Sharpton, then a rotund Brooklyn reverend with a prodigious konk. As seen above, during a commercial break–but while cameras continued rolling–the civil rights leader is seen yelling at an audience member who likely had commented negatively on Sharpton’s weight, race, bow tie, or affiliation with Tawana Brawley. Perhaps all four.
Saying that he was “tired of them acting big,” Sharpton told the unseen audience member, “You ain’t nothing! You a punk faggot!” Gesturing for the Downey fan to come up to the stage and rumble, Sharpton added, “Now come on and do something.”
Al appears at around 1:40
