Robin Williams may have to scratch Rio de Janeiro off his list of possible vacation sites.
Some citizens and officials in the Brazilian city are upset with comments the comedian made on a recent appearance on the “Late Show” with David Letterman, saying Rio received the 2016 Olympics because it sent “50 strippers and a pound of blow” to compete with Chicago’s entourage that included President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
Williams’ comments have been replayed several times on news shows across Brazil on Tuesday. Mayor Eduardo Paes says Williams is envious of Rio’s achievement.
Rio’s Olympic Committee said its lawyers will see whether legal action against Williams is possible.
Brief and to the Point
Williams should really know what he's talking about given his drug abuse history (coke may have come from Brazil...who can tell???) Not to mention what a stripper told about him in 2006...
