Woody Harrelson Gets Slammed by Reddit
Stoner actor Woody Harrelson took to the social bookmarking site Reddit’s AMA section, a place where non-famous and famous people like Louis CK and Stephen Colbert sometimes drop by and let users ask them anything. Literally anything. To say it didn’t go well is a vast understatement. Simply put: total train wreck.
I’m not a Reddit user but member isspecialist politely laid down the expectations: “These AMAs are a chance for your fans to interact with you directly, and usually ask some pretty random questions. It’s also considered bad form to make them brief, though I can imagine your time is valuable. I just wanted to apologize for the misunderstanding.”
Woody offered up an hour, his first mistake. His second was not answering questions honestly. He brushed off one about a one-night stand with a prom-aged woman and used the rest to push his new flick Rampart.
At some point, Harrelson’s rep took over. These reactions pretty much sum up the total:
Dingle_hopper1981: “This is the crappiest AMA in the history of the Internet.”
Bersh: “Should change this AMA to AMAAR (Ask Me Anything About Rampart).”
Sailormooncake: “You answered a total of 4 questions here today, and when I say “answered”, I mean that loosely. You have also embarrassed Mr. Harrelson in the process. Please inform the rest of Hollywood that Reddit is not a publicity outlet and that Reddittors don’t tolerate this kind of crap.”
You can read the whole debacle here. There are plenty of calls to boycott Rampart and some pretty funny comments. Clearly Harrelson had no idea what he was in for.
