Doesn't this guy learn?

So I see Kenny Rogers had another, less physical run-in with a cameraman at his booking yesterday.

Kenny. You fucked up. You're in jail getting fingerprinted. Shut the hell up, get it over with, and get out of there. If you hadn't been a jackass in the first place, the dude wouldn't have had to get up early to videotape you at the county lockup. This will help your appeal to MLB immensely, no doubt. You're 40-fucking-years-old. Start acting like it.

if you or I got arrested, and were going through the booking process-- would a cameraman be there? probably not-- so what the hell is he doing there for K-Rog? The media is exploiting the moments in the guy's life when he's not exactly proud of himself. They need to back off of him, give him his space. If the tables were turned, the cameraman would want his space, too.

I don't think they are exploiting him Chris, they are doing their job. As a journalism major, you'll know that Rogers is a public figure and is regarded differently.

He's a crazed man, and this was an event because a pro athlete went shanghi on a photog. How many times have we seen movie or rock stars go crazy on a photog?

Exactly. He's obviously getting lousy representation, since he had two lawyers and his agent with him, and none of them thought to say "ignore the camera, Ken". He showed that last week's apologies were nothing but lip-service. If anything, I hope Bud extends his suspension, now. Newsflash, Kenny: if you think YOU have it rough, trying being a REAL celebrity. Have you seen the shit that people like Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie go through EVERY FUCKING TIME THEY STEP OUTSIDE? Occasionally a celeb goes Sean Penn on a photog, but generally they know they're celebrities and it comes with the territory.

when the first incident happened, all they could talk about on Sportscenter was that this was "out of character" for him. Now I'm convinced he's just an a**. Kenny, you're not Lindsay freaking Lohan. get over it.
