Actor Randy Quaid posted a bizarre video attacking Rupert Murdoch, Warner Brothers, and News Corp over their lack of support for him.
He said the studios had earned well over $1 billion for two films he acted in, “Independence Day” and “Christmas Vacation,” but he complained that Murdoch had never thanked him for his work.
“What did I get in return? A Warner Brothers exec, Bruce Berman, stole my house, and News Corp’s the New York Post continues to smear me to high heaven with a pack of lies,” Quaid claimed, as his bikini-clad wife sits on a bed behind him wearing sunglasses.
“For good measure, Warner Brothers even had my wife and I falsely arrested six times by (celebrity gossip website) TMZ,” he claimed. “No, for real. That’s really how it works. ‘Hastgag PMC’ – police-media corruption. Boom!”
Quaid and his wife are wanted on $500,000 bench warrants after they fled to Canada in 2010 to avoid trial on vandalism and residential burglary charges.
The couple had been living illegally in the guest house of a property they once owned, authorities said.
Quaid had been banned two years earlier from the Actor’s Equity Union after other performers in a Seattle play accused him of verbally and physically abusing them.
They are currently suing the U.S. State Department for the return of the passports that were revoked three years ago.
He said he and his wife, Evi, had been “put through a living hell of biblical proportion,” and he wondered aloud how they might retaliate.
Quaid then pulls open his jacket to reveal a Hawaiian shirt, which he said was the same one he wore when he saved the world in “Independence Day” – which he said was another act for which Murdoch had never thanked him.
“So Rupert, you want to f*ck me? I’m going to f*ck you,” said Quaid, who pulled out a mask of the media mogul. “Evi, put this on.”
The actor’s wife dons the paper mask and bends over, and Quaid simulates sex with her on camera as the couple’s dog begins barking in the background.
“Together, Rupert, together we’ll wipe out police-media corruption,” Quaid shouts from behind his wife. “I’m back!”

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’
In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.
“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.
It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.
In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.
Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’
One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.
"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.
"I love them much more than the men," he added.
Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."
"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.
Trump chants ‘COVID!’ ten times in a row after Obama slams him as ‘jealous’ of virus
President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.
"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."
Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
