It looks like LL Cool J isn't the only celebrity who was unaware he was appearing on Sarah Palin's Fox News special, Real American Stories, airing tonight. Interview footage of Toby Keith from early 2009 is included in the special, but Toby's publicist tells us he never sat down for an interview with Sarah Palin, nor was Toby's camp notified it would be used in the show.
LL Cool J took offense to his interview being used on the show, calling out the show's producers on it via Twitter. He was subsequently removed from the show, with Fox issuing a statement wishing LL Cool J luck with his "fledgling acting career." LL Cool J has appeared in more than 20 films since 1985 and is the star of the hit CBS drama NCIS: Los Angeles.
Is this an example of all publicity, even bad publicity, is good publicity? Not a good way to start her new show with this controversy or is it?
