PITT SHOCKED BY ANTI-AMERICAN ATTITUDE


Also see:
BRAD PITT

BRAD PITT discovered how unpopular America is across the globe when a group of drunk Dutchmen threatened to kill him because of his nationality. Pitt ran into the partygoers while he was in Amsterdam shooting OCEAN'S TWELVE, and the incident shocked him. He says, "I get a bike wherever I go and I went for a midnight ride around Amsterdam. There were some guys coming out of a bar having a good time. I said, 'Excuse me,' and swerved out of the way and they started screaming, 'You f**king American. We'll f**king kill you.' "I'd never come face to face with that before - that turn in the way we are perceived in other countries

Maybe, Brad, they were pissed that you almost ran them over?

They probably hate him cause they know he did the horizontal bop with J. Lewis and never bothered to post pics.  That is the reason I hate him.

How would they know he was an American if he was just passing by on a bike?

They fully expected to get run over and Brad didn't oblige.

Bicyclers have the right away over pedestrians in Amsterdam.

Obviously, the partygoers were drunk, what to expect from people who are elibibriated?

Americans should expect that kind of treatment since the USofA is the biggest kid on the block.

My mother said that when she visited Europe, she encountered two types of Europeans: the stuck-up assholes who looked down on you for not being European, and the people who would literally offer to buy your jeans off you for some inscrutable reason.

Yeah, she said that she and all her friends were constantly getting offers (mostly in Germany) to buy their bluejeans, because apparently they were hard to find at the time.

Well DKPROF is DANISH and from DENMARK while the people in the tidbit are DUTCH and from the NETHERLANDS.  Maybe Pitt got Denmark and the Netherland sconfused and that is what pissed them off.

First of all, DKProf scares me too. Organizational theorists are the debil. Still, he is from Denmark, not the Netherlands, which believe it or not are two different places. It doesn't matter to us, but people from that chocolate and Windmill obsessed region of the world get all offended when you get it wrong, so...

Secondly, perhaps they just wanted to kill Brad Pitt. I wouldn't mind hitting him with a brick myself.

Thirdly....some drunken a$$holes say something stupid to him while he bikes around Amsterdam at some insanely late hour, and that is a basis upon which to judge the state of relations between the US and the Netherlands? The sample size is a bit small and skewed, there, Prof. Pitt....

No, I think he meant sediment.



He was using a metaphor to describe how he was pushed to the ground while in Germany.    Hence he "ran into the sediment" quite literally.
