Michael Rapaport Slams NFL’s New Kneeling Ban: ‘Motherf—ing Bulls—‘ (Video)
Michael Rapaport is not taking the NFL’s new rule regarding protests sitting down.

He just might, however, take a knee to express his disappointment.

In an impassioned video post, Rapaport deemed the new rule “some motherf—ing bulls—.”

He also questioned the NFL’s motives for instituting the policy change, as well as Donald Trump’s criticism of players who have taken a knee in protest.

In the video, “Atypical” star Rapaport posited that had former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who ignited the debate in 2016 by refusing to stand while the national anthem was played before games in protest against racial injustice, had chosen another cause to champion,

Michael Rapaport ‘Tired’ of Kanye West’s ‘Bulls—‘ Over Liposuction Comment (Video)

Michael Rapaport ‘Tired’ of Kanye West’s ‘Bulls—‘ Over Liposuction Comment (Video)
Way to zig while others are zagging, Michael Rapaport.

Actor/podcaster Rapaport tore into rapper Kanye West on Wednesday, shredding West for his “f—ing bulls—” — and, unlike numerous other West critics, Rapaport didn’t take West specifically to task over West’s assessment that slavery “sounds like a choice.”

Instead, Rapaport eviscerated West over his revelation that he had undergone liposuction so that he wouldn’t be called fat.

In a video posted to his social media accounts, Rapaport pinpointed the liposuction comment as “the thing that pisses me off the most.”

“Woke up with a f—ing Kanye hangover. I’m tired of this bulls—,” Rapaport began the video. “You know, I’ve got my own f—ing issues . I’ve got mouths to feed, Ok. I’ve got dogs to walk. You see, the whole world shouldn’t have to babysit your f—ing ass every single f—ing day.”

Rapaport continued, “Out of all the f—ing bulls— this self-centered motherf—er has spewed the last few days, I have narrowed it down to one thing, the thing that pisses me off the most.”

The “Atypical” star then offered a snippet of West’s interview with TMZ, in which he discussed the liposuction.

“Aww, really? You got liposuction because you didn’t want us to call you fat?” Rapaport asked. “It’s everyone else’s fault? Then get off the donuts, get off the cheeseburgers, and do some jumping jacks like the rest of the f—ing world has to do, you f—ing baby!”

“The Life of Pablo” rapper has taken considerable heat this week, thanks largely to the TMZ interview, in which West declared, “When you hear about slavery for 400 years — for 400 years?! That sounds like a choice,” West said. “You was there for 400 years, and it’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally in prison.”

West later took to Twitter in a seeming effort to clarify his remarks, writing, “Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will … My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved.”

Michael Rapaport Rips ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ Kanye West Over Trump Support (Video)
Add Michael Rapaport to the chorus of voices ribbing Kanye West over his support of President Donald Trump.

Actor/podcaster Rapaport took aim at the rapper in a video posted to Twitter on Friday morning, declaring West “Cuckoo’s Nest Kanye.”

“I don’t care if you’re a Republican or a Democrat. Honestly, I don’t know the really know the true difference between a Republican or a Democrat,” Rapaport began.

“The fact that ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ Kanye is wearing a Maga hat, supporting Donald Trump — That’s the f—ing problem! After all he’s said, all he’s done — you support this motherf—er?”

Rapaport went on to rip West on other fronts.

“Talking about you’re producing Nas’ record — does Nas know you’re producing his record? Is he aware of this? Or [is it] just some wild s— you tweeted out? Because all the other s— that you tweeted out is wild, and you’re tweeting that s— like you’re kicking knowledge. You’re not kicking knowledge, duke!”

Rapaport continued his vent against West by addressing what he felt was another egregious stance of the rapper’s — his championing of skinny jeans.

“This guy was so proud to be the first person to wear skinny jeans,” Rapaport said. “And I remember thinking, ‘That’s nothing to be proud of, motherf—er. That is nothing to brag about.”

The “Atypical” star wrapped up the video with a dire warning for West.

“Out here sounding Britney Spears-crazy; you’re gonna wind up in the cuckoo’s nest, talking about, ‘Put the ball in the hoop, Chief! Put the ball in the hoop, Chief!'” Rapaport said, an apparent reference to “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”

West raised eyebrows this week when he expressed his love for Trump, tweeting, “He is my brother.”

If you have never heard of Michael Rapaport’s media style, then you might be shocked at this headline. But if you are (were) a follower of his, this is the expected outcome of his “career” in sports sleaze. The idea of Barstool Sports from Rapaport’s eyes apparently was that it would be a verbal free-for-all about sports figures, be it media or the athletes themselves. There were obviously enough fans to keep him afloat for a while, “a while” meaning from the start of his tenure in June of 2017 at Barstool Sports. But the personality was going to doom

Showtime Cancels Andrew Dice Clay Series
Showtime has canceled Andrew Dice Clay’s comedy series “Dice.”

The semi-autobiographical series chronicled Andrew Dice Clay, starring as himself, as he tried to live his life while trapped in the skin of “The Diceman.”

Hailing from Fox 21 Television Studios, “Dice” was created by Scot Armstrong (“Old School,” “The Hangover Part II”). Clay served as an executive producer, along with Armstrong, Sean Furst, Bryan Furst, Bruce Rubenstein, Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka. Kevin Corrigan also stars with Clay. Guest stars included Natasha Leggero, Lorraine Bracco, Adrien Brody, Michael Rapaport, Wayne Newton, Criss Angel and Rita Rudner.
