regardless of what he did, he is still a good actor and I will see more of his movies even if I don't agree with him. There are alot of other people out there on Television that have said worse things about our presidents and you guys don't talk about that and I bet you still watch them. Don't act like a baby by saying "well I am not going to watch any of his movie's anymore, because he was talking smack about our president" (yes i was saying that in a mockingly manner) hehe, mockingly :x.

I have always liked Danny Devito but he did make a total idiot of himself yesterday. Another drunk actor slamming the president. I wonder if Danny Devito thinks he was clever,funny,edgy or what. You were a drunk mouthing off and insulting everyone watching the show and sitting on stage with you who might like the president and does not agree with you. We did not ask for your opinion nor did we want it. It was a cheap shot, he took it and maybe a lot of people who do like or respect the president will not go and see your new movie, now you have also hurt the people who were in the movie with you. They were not out drinking all night and maybe they do not appreciate your behavior either!!

Debra, what's your point? You are all making way to big a deal out of this. I would hardly compare Devito's remarks and opinions to a life threatening situation of yelling fire in a crowded theatre. As far as slander, let the president worry about that, he's a big boy. The comments against Devito for his "bafoonish" behavior were extreme, like the one reccomending he leave the country, I think that was Cheryl's point, Cheryl's very good point.

Cheryl, think about it. Yes, we have the right to speak freely; we do NOT have the right to say whatever we want at any time. We don't have the right to, for example, slander others (say things about them that are untrue or that harm the other's reputation). You've probably heard of celebrities brining law suits against publications like National Enquirer. The basis of their law suits is libel, or printing untrue stories. In a similar way, we are not allowed to yell FIRE in a crowded theater,because that would put people's lives at risk as they rush for the exit. So you must understand that we are not totally free to act in any irresponsible way we choose.
Now, as far as Devito is concerned, sure, he has the right to act like a buffoon - and the rest of us have the right to comment on his buffoonish behavior. So, Cheryl, what is your point?
