You Can Take The Man Out Of The Ghetto…

Last night, during the taping the second annual Vibe Music Awards in Santa Monica, a man approached Dr. Dre and punched him. Dre’s bodyguards and Dre himself–who was just about to accept a lifetime achievement award from Snoop and Quincy Jones–pounced. A 26-year old man was stabbed in the melee and is now in stable condition.
Maybe some of the sleepytime ad industry awards shows could learn something from this bad Vibes incident.
Finding someone to punch certainly wouldn’t pose much of a problem.

  1. Hmmm. Seems like everyone is afraid to comment on this one, due to the politically-correct police. Ahh, what a tangled web we weave…
