The Daily Show host has released a "Between the scenes" online video reacting to a question from an audience member about the uproar over Neeson's comments that he planned to harm any "black bastard" after his friend was raped 40 years ago. Noah responded that Neeson did indeed have a "racist" thought. But Noah also called it a "powerful admission" especially since Neeson described himself as "ashamed" of his behavior. Noah said the uproar over Neeson's comments would've been had a different reaction had he made it on Oprah Winfrey's old show, instead of to the British newspaper The Independent. “I think if Liam Neeson had told that story on Oprah, and there was like a conversation, we would’ve seen as a person admitting to a time in their life when they allowed their anger and hatred to fester into a racism that they’re ashamed of,” Noah said.
“I saw those tweets and what she said. I guess it was a surprise,” Ken Ehrlich told Rolling Stone Saturday amid Grammys rehearsals. “I will say this, and they don’t want me to say it but I’m going to say it: The thing that probably bothered me more than whatever else she said about me is when she said I’m not collaborative." Ehrlich, who said that he never spoke to Grande personally, added: "The fact of the matter is — and I actually wrote a little thing in the middle of the night that I’m not going to do anything about, but, I mean. You can ask Christina Aguilera, who I asked to do ‘It’s a Man’s World’ for James Brown. You can ask Melissa Etheridge, who finished her cancer treatment and I put her out on stage, bald, doing Janis Joplin. You can ask Ricky Martin who overnight became the creator of the Latin music revolution. Ask Mary J. Blige, who was scared shitless to go out there and do ‘No More Drama.’ I basically worked with her to mold it. Ask H.E.R. who’s in this show.” ALSO: Why does the Grammys keep treating hip-hop like it "still sits at the pop culture kids’ table"?
The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported an allegation of sexual misconduct against Calloway last June, reports that Warner Bros. TV suspended Calloway as it was preparing a new story with additional claims against the Extra host. Last month, The Daily Beast reported that two more women have come forward accusing Calloway of sexual misconduct. "Upon becoming aware of allegations of sexual misconduct against AJ Calloway, we began an internal review to determine whether there had been any misconduct by Mr. Calloway on Extra and whether any employee of the show had been the victim of any such misconduct," Warner Bros. TV said in a statement. "To date, we have found nothing to suggest that Mr. Calloway has ever engaged in workplace misconduct." In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Calloway's attorney said: "Mr. Calloway maintains that these unsubstantiated allegations are patently false. He vehemently denies that he ever assaulted anyone and looks forward to clearing his name."
