Jamie Foxx and Kirstie Alley aren’t the only stars sharing their displeasure with convicted child rapist Roman Polanski. The famed lensman can rot in prison for all eternity as far as Star Jones is concerned.
The legal eagle and former The View co-host blasted Polanski — who is currently being held in a Swiss prison, fighting extradition to the U.S. on a 1977 sex abuse charge — during a round table discussion on The Insider Monday. But even among Polanski adversaries, Star is prompting debate over her reference to race and strong choice of words.
“I have no sympathy for him,” Star tells The Insider. “He’s in jail. Three hots and a cot, that’s what you’re supposed to get. Something tells me Spike Lee would not have been allowed to chill in France for the last three decades had he admitted to having sex with a 13-year-old.”
She goes on to say, “Roman Polanski is very much loved by the Hollywood industry and they are out there putting petitions together… Because he [Polanksi] is white and he is rich, he was privileged.”
What do think, Crunchers? Did Star go too far?
