David Arquette Thinks Latina Women Are "Nuts"

All of the good work that David Arquette did this week in support of feeding hungry people in America has all gone out the window and then some. This morning he was on Fox And Friends and was asked about potential Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor and instead of focusing on her decided to take a shot at all Latina women.

The video is short, but I realize some of you can't watch videos, so let me describe what he says.

"I think Latina women are, I mean, it depends on the woman, but I think they are very, they have great judgment, but there are some that are just nuts. I'm just saying."

One of the anchors then pointed out that David's wife Courteney Cox isn't Latina, but apparently David still has first hand knowledge of Latina women. "But I'm from Los Angeles so we know all about the Latina women. "

Well we know he can't say he was misquoted because it is right there in video that he said it. I guess he could say he was flustered because he had spent 16 of the past 48 hours in a plastic box, but what he should do is just come out and apologize and say that he is an idiot and because he is sorry he has decided against punishing the world further and will not be making Scream 4.

I even wrote out a statement for him in Spanish which he is free to use.

Lo siento mucho si he ofendido a las mujeres latinas en todo el mundo y como una muestra de remordimiento me ponga fin de inmediato a la preparación para hacer más películas Grito y destruir todas las copias de las películas en Grito existencia. En una nota que he visto Jennifer Aniston desnuda.

wow. he knows all about latinas, and yet he is a man. he may not be a bad person, see: drunken mel gibson, but he has no right to make generalizations about a group of people.

BigMama said...

true, but can you hold anything against a guy who half his blood is probably made up of THZ? Bless him, he undoubtedly doesn't have a brain cell that isn't hitting a snooze button.

"En una nota que he visto Jennifer Aniston desnuda."

LOL nice ;)

Pookie said...

lol, enty! your spanish statement for him is THE. BEST. EVER...esp the part of destroying all copies of Scream in existence...that just made my day.

as for that douchebag, let's book him on a one-way trip to Douchechusetts where he can be vp under presidents chris martin and goopy.

what an ignorant ass...having lived in l.a. for an insane # of yrs, i can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that l.a. may represent many latinos, but it isn't representative of all 22 latin countries. (miami does this, but l.a. does not). i wonder if he knows how much of an ass he is?

Can someone translate the statement?

hehe, babel fish works really well...

I feel much if there am victim to the Latin women anywhere in the world and as a remorse sample ends to me the preparation immediately to make more films Shout and to destroy all the copies of the films in Shout existence. In one note that I have seen Jennifer naked Aniston.

I am very sorry if I have offended the latin women of the world, and as a symbol of my remorse I will put an immediate end to the [pre-production] of any more Scream films and [will] destroy all copies of the film Scream in existence. On [another] note, I've seen Jennifer Aniston nude.

I agree with CM. Translation please.

scratch that last.
Thanks

Babs said...

And David Arquette was being questioned about the Supreme Court nominee because...????

.robert said...

Babs,

Everyone knows that Hollywood-types are the best source of information for Geopolitical answers.

Mexi said...

As a Latina woman (duh) I take some offense but its partly true lol...I think my fiancé (white boy) says it best...he loves Latinas cuz we love,fight,and screw with passion. It can be seen as crazy but every bit of that statement is true!

SFG said...

HAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA enty, you are BRILLIANT.

Gayla said...

"ohhh whatever. he said some latina women are crazy."

Well I'm a black woman and if someone were to say, "well, there are some black women are crazy/golddiggers/hoes. I'm just saying...I'm from DC so we know all about the black women" I'd be pissed. What David said was just as offensive and stereotypical. And he negated the 'some women' part by following it up with "we know all about the Latina women" which implies that all Latinas are crazy. And he knows, b/c he even lived in the same city as some of them! Hell, a few of them were even his wife's maids! STFU, David.

It's obvious that he knew nothing about the Supreme Court or Sonia Sotomayor and was basically stuck with nothing to say, but geez, if I was stuck with being embarrassed for being out of the loop on current affairs or coming off like a misogynistic racist bastard, I think I'd prefer to just look out of the loop on current affairs.

But then again, he was on Fox News so I can see where he think he made the right decision.

AnonMom said...

He is as lame as his career.

cibele said...

What an idiot.

angelina said...

Oh David, you know nothing about us...we only get crazy when jack*sses like you speak ;)

Karmen said...

My Spanish is so rusty, but I greatly appreciated that, Enty.

David Arquette is an idiot.

ardleigh said...

I take him for what he is a stupid ass. If someone had said that about Irish ladies I'd take it for who said it. If it comes from an asshat who has trouble stringing words together? I'd roll my eyes and say Ass to the TV. If it came from someone with a modicum of intellect I'd be PISSED OFF.

Melody said...

It's Fox and Friends ...

I have to say I doubt David has met even a representative sampling of Latinas (did he really say Latina women? That's like saying "female lesbians") I'm from LA and I doubt I've met more than an extreme fraction of them. Therefore, his opinion says something about only one person -- himself and it's that he's a moron.

jax said...

David, the word you were looking for was passionate, not nuts.
douche.

adore said...

I would be offended but his opinion is not worthy.

Dina said...

LMAO @ Enty's translation! It's the best!

Girly said...

He already issued an apology, which i personally think makes him look more douchy.
"I have nothing but love and respect for Latina women and women in general of all cultural backgrounds. What saddens me most is that it took away from the issue of Hunger in America, for which I was on the show to begin with," he continued. "I work in a pantry in Venice California with a Hispanic woman named Delpia (who has been feeding people at St. Joseph's Center for 29 years) and she is my personal hero. Having been raised in Los Angeles I have grown up with a deep and profound love for the Latino culture."

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I'm with Gayla. One hundred percent.

shakey said...

Can you add Eight Legged Freaks to the destruction list too, please?

CM said...

thanks for the translation Pookie. ENTY you make my day ... always. Thanks to you as well.

I'm with adore. As a Latina I'd be offended if the person making the statement weren't such a waste of oxygen, but in this case, it just confirms his ignorance, so no big deal.

RocketQueen said...

Meh..he ain't wrong (*hides*). But I think the word he was looking for is "fiery", not "nuts".
