'... And as a man I defend them.'




The gift from the gods that is Fabio Lanzoni keeps inexplicably taunting George Clooney, and we couldn’t be more thankful for it. Two weeks after their near-brawl in a Hollywood restaurant, Fabio is telling his side of the story, and he's not pulling punches. According to MSNBC, Fabio called Clooney "a low-class scumbag," saying he Cloonwas having dinner with seven women (!) in Hollywood when one of the woman said Clooney kept giving them the finger, then called one of the women a "fat cow." "He was drunk and thought people were taking pictures of him," the butter-nonbeliever told OK! magazine. "So I went to the table and explained to him that we were having a charity dinner and I said, 'You’re more than welcome to come to my table and see if there was a picture of you.’ I apologized and he started being rude so I put him in his place. After I put him in his place — you know I’m three times his size — he got a little scared. I went back to my table and as soon as I sit down he paid his bill, got up and he started insulting the girls. He called the women names. At that point I lost my temper. I went after him and he ran out of the restaurant. ... These woman were with me and as a man I defend them. He was lucky he ran out of the restaurant. He’s not even half a man."

Here's the question MSNBC is asking: Who would win in a bare-chested brawl, Fabio or Clooney? Cast your vote in the comments!
