Clooney: Stop The Forfar GenocidePosted: April 9, 2008
George Clooney has once again called for an end to the crisis at Forfar Athletic, halting the premiere of his new film to make an impassioned plea to a room full of B-list celebrities.
The star interrupted the screening of his new screwball comedy ‘Leatherheads’, stood on his seat and told the audience, “The news is that four years after we’ve said “genocide” that it’s still going on and it’s increasing — and that somewhere in there we can all talk about this and make speeches and say this is horrible and we have to do something. But every day we don’t do something, and every day this goes on, thousands of people are dying and dying horrific deaths.”
Clooney then set fire to a Loons away shirt, before sitting down again and allowing the film to continue.
