Outrage Watch: Jesse Ventura blasts 'American Sniper' Chris Kyle
Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's new daily rundown of all the things people are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story? Jesse Ventura puts "American Sniper" Chris Kyle on blast. The former Minnesota governor slammed the Iraq war vet in an interview with the Associated Press published today, saying in part: "A hero must be honorable, must have honor. And you can't have honor if you're a liar." Ventura was making reference to a passage in Kyle's book where the Seal claimed to have punched out the wrestler in a California bar - an alleged fabrication that netted Ventura $1.8 million in a defamation settlement. So will he be seeing the movie? Not likely: in another choice quote, he calls the Clint Eastwood-directed biopic "as authentic as 'Dirty Harry.'" Oof. Want more? There's plenty of indignation to go around. See below for a full roundup of today's kerfuffles.
