My how the time flies, it seems like just last week director Brett Ratner was talking about how he "banged" Olivia Munn "before she was Asian." Then on Friday, at a screening for his new film, Tower Heist, he was asked how he prepares for scenes with his actors. Does he rehearse? No, he explained, "Rehearsal is for fags." The very same day he went on Howard Stern's show and said he forced a "very young" Lindsay Lohan to get screened for STDs before they had sex. Though his misogynistic and racist remarks went pretty much unchecked, at least GLAAD and the industry's mythical gay mafia called him out after an initial lukewarm apology. Showing that at least some of the douche bags in Hollywood are held accountable for their actions, the pressure mounted and he was forced to step down from his "dream" gig of producing the Oscar telecast. "As difficult as the last few days have been for me, they cannot compare to the experience of any young man or woman who has been the target of offensive slurs or derogatory comments," he said in his resignation letter. "So many artists and craftspeople in our business are members of the LGBT community, and it pains me deeply that I may have hurt them." We're sure he's also sorry his idiocy hurt his bank balance.

I've read before that Olivia "Just Walk It Off, Bitch" Munn decided to play up her Chinese heritage as a career move after she figured out that some of her geek fans fetishize Asian women.

If it is true that Olivia shucked and jived her way to a C-List career, than I take zero issue with Ratner making that "before she was Asian" crack - as he would've been stating the truth.
