sacha-baron-cohen-as-brun-001 Scott Aukerman, a Twitter-happy, Tumblr-typing comedian, who was hired to write the jokes for this weekend’s MTV Movie Awards, confirmed that the entire Bruno’s ass in Eminem’s face stunt was indeed rehearsed beforehand and with the full consent of the rapper. Duh! Aukerman, an Emmy nominated writer, beat all his co-conspirators to the punch, posting an account on his blog that pretty much settled any remaining speculation—assuming there still was any—about Eminem’s level of involvement:

“Yes, the Bruno/Eminem incident was staged. That’s all anyone wants to talk about, so let’s get it out of the way. They rehearsed it at dress and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show then.”

Strangely, the writer has since deleted the post, which could ignite more “controversy.” Was this a corporately mandated censorship from MTV for stealing all their thunder or just personal guilt for prematurely letting the cat out of the bag? Who knows! At least this nation of idiots can now soldier onto the next imagined outrage with full knowledge that Eminem had sanctioned man ass in his face, twice. |LATimes|
