Sarah Palin loves LL Cool James, but the feeling isn’t mutual.
Rap legend and actor LL Cool J is featured in promos for the Palin-hosted ‘Real American Stories,’ airing on FOX News on Thursday night, but he says the network never asked him to participate.
The real-life James Smith told his Twitter followers Tuesday night,
“Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else and are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palin’s show.”
Aside from LL, country star Toby Keith and former GE exec Jack Welch are billed as appearing on the show, which will feature “real-life tales of overcoming adversity.” According the LA Times, the rapper will talk about his personal life and career in a segment called ‘In Their Own Words.’
Keith is slated to talk about his patriotic anthem ‘Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American).’ He, too, was caught off guard by his involvement. His publicist said,
“Toby was not asked to participate nor has he ever done an interview with Sarah Palin.”
Like LL, Keith’s interview for the special was also taped in 2008.
