The first day of a new year and already I have my Asshole Of The Week: Washed up game show host Bob Eubanks.
Bob was co-host of todays Rose Parade in California and made very disparaging remarks against the members of the 501st Legion, a Star Wars Fan Club dedicated to making their own authentic costumes (Stormtroopers, Bounty Hunters, Imperial Officers and of course Darth Vader to name just a few), a fan club that has grown into a worldwide organization of people of all walks of life who in addition to their Star Wars related projects spend COUNTLESS hours in community work and charity events.
This group of men and women from around the world were hand selected by George Lucas himself to march in The Rose Parade along with the Star Wars floats as part of the 30th Anniversary celebration of the films release.
So, what kind of RESPECT do you think Eubanks, a man who should thank his lucky stars for whatever gig he can still GET on TV, gives to these amazing, hard working, creative, charitable people?
He called them "groupies" and stated that "they all need to get JOBS."
Laugh it up, asshole, just wait until you see the boat load of hate mail you will soon be getting from irate Star Wars fans around the WORLD.
What a total lack of class: Did he make the same comments about the guys dressed up as mideivel knights? Of course not! Did he think of how humiliating his comments would be to all those people who worked so hard to get there, practice their marching, and make sure they did their part to make the event special only to hear that PUTZ insult them???
On behalf of Star Wars fans everywhere: FUCK YOU, BOB.
