Turns Out Steve Rannazzisi, Kevin From 'the League', Is A Big Fat Liar

Turns Out Steve Rannazzisi, Kevin from 'The League', is a Big Fat Liar

False claims of being near victim of 9/11

Steve Rannazzisi has done multiple interviews over the years where he’s talked about his 9/11 survival. He talked about working on the 54th floor for Merrill Lynch in the South Tower. Multiple times he told interviewers how he ran outside after the first tower was hit, only to look up and see the second plane strike.

He told interviewers time and again how he called up to his office, then ran as fast as he could, not stopping until he hit West Broadway.

And…That’s bullshit

Well, it turns out there was no Merrill Lynch on the 54th floor, and Rannazzisi was in Manhattan, but in Midtown, miles away from the World Trade Center. He definitely didn’t have to run for his life, and him nearly dying that day definitely didn’t inspire him to move to Hollywood and follow his dreams, a claim he has made multiple times.

Sure, maybe he was inspired to move after the attacks, but he was far from being a near victim of them. And that’s a big difference. 

How will this affect his career?

Steve has been the face of NFL ads, March Madness, and recently Buffalo Wild Wings. But this might come to an end sooner than Rannazzisi hoped.

Buffalo Wild Wings released a statement Tuesday in regards to their relationship with Rannazzisi, saying,  “We are disappointed to learn of Steve’s misrepresentations regarding the events of September 11, 2001… We are currently re-evaluating our relationship with Steve pending a review of all the facts.

Twitter issued apology

Rannazzisi issued an apology on Twitter Tuesday, starting with “As a young man, I made a mistake that I deeply regret and for which apologies may still not be enough.”

He followed it up with another 9 tweets describing his lie, and stating he was unsure why he did it, but that he was having an “early taste of having a public persona, and I made a terrible mistake.”

Rannazzisi is supposed to have a show coming out shortly on Comedy Central, as well as some other big standup tours in the works. It will be interesting to see whether he carries on with all these plans (and if the networks do) in light of the recent news and public blowback.

Some Kiss Ass Staples For Your Fall Wardrobe

Some Kiss Ass Staples for Your Fall Wardrobe

Maison Kitsuné x Reebok Classic

A serious match made in heaven. Maison Kitsuné teamed up with Reebok to bring French high fashion to American sportswear, and it turns out there is a pretty sick match up.

We were lucky enough to check out the launch at their Rivington Street store this last weekend in NYC, and there are a few things we’d love to throw in our closets for the upcoming months.

Minimalistic street style 

The vibe is minimal and sporty, with a good high street fashion casual feel to it. The entire line consists of beige and red, with a few patterns and details throughout to make each piece stand out.

Our favorites are definitely the sneakers, which are perfectly crisp without looking preppy, and the crewneck sweatshirt, it’s perfectly toned down with just a hint of detail for that extra style.

Check out the entire collection over at Maison Kitsuné, available both online and in stores.

Cops Refused Service At Whataburger

Cops Refused Service at Whataburger

No food for you!

Two cops stopped off for a quick bite at a Whataburger in Lewisville, Texas and were turned away before they even got a chance to order.

The officers walked in, and the Whataburger manager reportedly told them “We don’t serve police officers” before they were able to get some cheeseburger deliciousness. The cops asked the manager multiple times if he was joking, to which the gentleman just stood there and stared at them.

But the officers are still hungry, and pissed

Whataburger caught wind of the incident after the burgerless officers started letting others hear their beef, and responded via Twitter letting burger-loving audiences know that Whataburger corporate is down with hungry men in uniform, and just that one employee has an issue. Well, now he has several issues, since he has now been terminated from the company.

Of course, no amount of Police bigotry will keep these starvin’ fellas from chowing down on some double patties. In an interview with a local Texas CBS affiliate, the officers let them know they will definitely be back for another bite.
