Jessica Alba lashes out at ”dumb” jibeJanuary 28th, 2009 - 2:28 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan 28 (ANI): Jessica Alba took to her blog to defend herself after right-wing TV news pundit Bill O”Reilly suggested that the actress was dumb.
The Sin City star usedher MySpace.com blog to defend herself after O”Reilly called her “misguided” for poking fun at a journalist during an inauguration event last week, reports Us magazine.
The new mum asked the reporter what he liked most about new U.S. President Barack Obama, and when he refused to answer, she joked, “That’’s it, be neutral. Be Sweden about it.”
Following the comment, TMZ.com called her a “ditz” and an “arrogant buffoon” for saying Sweden instead of Switzerland when referring to the neutral country during WWII.
O”Reilly - whom Alba had called an “a-hole” at the same event - also called her “misguided” for mixing up the countries.
But on her blog, Alba writes, “I find it depressing that, in the midst of perhaps the most salient time in our country’’s history, individuals are taking it upon themselves to encourage negativity and stupidity.
“Last week, Mr. Bill O”Reilly and some really classy sites (i.e. TMZ) insinuated I was dumb by claiming Sweden was a neutral country.
“I appreciate the fact that he is a news anchor and that gossip sites are inundated with intelligent reporting, but seriously people… it’’s so sad to me that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland.”
She then linked to a wikipedia article to prove Sweden was also a neutral country.
Added Alba, “I appreciate the name calling and the accurate reporting. Keep it up!!” (ANI)
