2008 Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s new show “Real American Stories” debuted on Thursday evening. The Fox News talk-show garnered controversy and attention given the former Alaska governor’s oft-times bizarre headlines during the 2008 presidential campaign.
Rapper-actor LL Cool J was previously listed as one of the guests on the Palin-hosted show, however, the rapper claimed via Twitter that Fox used his name to gain ratings. “Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show,” he tweeted. “WOW.”
The rapper’s assertion suggested he did not want to be associated with the show and his segment was later pulled. Country singer Toby Keith was also listed as a guest, but his publicist claimed that they had “no idea what interview [Fox is] using.” LL Cool J has not made any recent statements regarding Fox’s decision to pull his segment.
