First Spike And Now Chris??

What's got these dudes all riled up??

During a Q&A session following the screening of the filmmaker's religion-focused feature, actor and comedian Chris Rock (at Sundance for his new film "2 Days in New York" from Julie Delpy) asked Lee if he would have done anything differently had he "actually gotten... studio money" for the film. Lee's response was a fiery one, fueled with comments that condemned the Hollywood studio system for knowing "nothing about black people."

"We never went to the studios with this film. I bought a camera and said we're gonna do this motherfucking film ourselves. I didn't need a motherfucking studio telling me something about Red Hook! They know nothing about black people," Lee said in response to Rock's question, according to the New York Post. "And they're gonna give me notes about what a 13-year-old black boy and girl do in Red Hook? Fuck no!"


If you ask Chris Rock about Newt Gingrich, he will destroy your expensive equipment.

At an event at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday, Rock was posing for photos when a videographer asked him a question about the GOP candidate, the New York Post reports.

The comedian was none too pleased about the line of political questioning.

“Chris pushed the interviewer and grabbed the camera. He smashed it so hard, it broke into pieces. He cursed the guy for filming when he had asked them to stop,” a witness told the paper.
