Simon Cowell Cleared of “Eye-Rolling” Charges!

posted by on April 19 at 10:37 AM

Yesterday we were debating the latest “controversy of the century™”—American Idol’s Simon Cowell allegedly rolling his eyes while contestant Chris Richardson was paying his respects to the victims of Virginia Tech. As expected, Simon issued a statement on last night’s episode claiming he didn’t hear what Chris was saying, because he was talking to Paula… hence the “eye-roll.” But here’s something unexpected! Instead of just taking his word for it, the producers put together a split-screen clip of what actually happened during that moment, and from all appearances it clears Simon of all “eye-rolling” charges. Ahhhhh. HE MUST FEEL LIKE O.J. SIMPSON!
Check out the video here (the part you’re interested in starts at the 1:15 mark).

I want to have a more legitimate reason for thinking he is a total douche...

Yeah, that was kind of silly. (I mean the whole show is, but that part really stuck out.) His explanation and apology wasn't out of place, but they didn't have to go to the video evidence to prove it, for chrissakes.
