Robert Pattinson Allergic to Girly-Bits, But Apparently Not Dated Racial Terms

Robert Pattinson Allergic to Girly-Bits, But Apparently Not Dated Racial Terms-photo

Uh-oh; looks like Robert Pattinson might have to go on his own apology tour soon. The New Moon hunk's admission that he's allergic to lady parts wasn't the only awkward segment of his recent interview with Details magazine. At one point, R-Pattz let slip with a racial term that some might deem outdated and offensive:

Details: Rob, did you know that every time you say actor or acting you lower your voice to a whisper?

Pattinson: I do?

Details: Yes, so quietly it's like you're saying Negro.

(Pattinson laughs, lightens up.)

Pattinson: What if we were 'acting' like 'Negroes'? Then we'd be f*cked--we couldn't hear anything...

If Rob thinks that scenario is f*cked, just wait until the inevitable backlash and protests kick in. We're talking mass burnings of Twilight DVDs in the streets, people. And he can just forget about an invitation to this year's BET Awards.

On the plus side, we're sure that R-Pattz will be receiving a lovely fruit basket from John Mayer soon, in gratitude for finally taking the heat off of him.

    This is the exact reason why celebrities cannot be themselves during an interview. If you think his comments are racist than you are in desperate need of an education. Society is so quick to judge, always looking for a flaw in someone’s personal character just to make headlines or sell magazines. What he said is being taken completely out of context. The only people who should apologize are those accusing him of being a racist.

    Look I don't give a F*ck what race Jenny is. Negro is not a bad word. But what Rob said after that was not right. No matter what he meant by it, we need to be culture sensitive. There are things that are inappropriate to say no matter the context it's said. Because Rob is the seasons flavor, people want to make excuses for him even blaming the interviewer. Jenny did not say we would be f*cked, Rob did. What does he mean by that? celebs. need to be accountable for what comes out of their mouth no matter who they are. Rob needs to be more aware what he's saying and how he's saying it because the fact is there are people that's not happy about his phrase.

    It's NOT a racial comment. Does everything have to be racial and black and white? Get over yourself people! He was answering the guy's questions and making a joke that no one would be able to hear him if he used BOTH words in a sentence. This is ridiculous! I'm black - and read what he said as a joke. Get over it!

    Give me a break. There is nothing racial about his comments. He is not "allergic" to vaginas either. He loves women. He is allergic only because he "swells" when around women. It's a Brit joke. He's a great guy, stop trying to run him down.

    Why?

    Celebuzz & Zenni (at sfgate.com and YouTube.com) are taking out their issues on Mr. Pattinson. Doing a lot of damage! This ‘rassist Negro’ article by Jenny Lumet in magazine Details - her mom Gail Lumet Buckley is African American herself. She served as a student counselor at the National Scholarship Service and Fund for Negro Students between the years of 1961-62. Gail’s mom Lena Horne is one of the first African American actresses in Hollywood! And about Mr. Pattinson - we don’t know what he said and if he said, he worked with Ms. Lumet in 2008 on the movie script so probably he would be talking with her in a friendly mood. We fans of Mr. Pattinson, who stand by him each day, can testify in his behalf.

Looks like his fans are bombarding this site to explain his comments and behavior because they know him so well, right?

    I think Rob should have listened to the question carefully and not answered her. The reason she metioned about race is a way to distroy Robs career or to bring publisty to the magazine like the John Mayer Playboy. She could of metioned why do u feel ashamed of mentioning the word acting? Plus Jenny must be ashamed of her own race or wishes she was white because no other Black or Mixed race person would mention the n word within an interview unless the interview dealt with race issues which it didn't.

    I'm black and the only offence i get is from You, what a shame, either you're not intelligent enough to understand the meaning of what he said or you just try to get hit and cause drama, in this case, I WILL NEVER VISIT THIS SITE AGAIN...get a brain or do your work correctelly. racism is not something you can bring like this.

  • Marie

    It's as simple as this... Look up the definition for both terms then get back to me. I'm a Negro, I ain't no ***. But I am a Negro. It would be fairly easy for me to cry out 'racist'! This isn't an issue that I take lightly, believe me. As hurtful as it is to experience actual racism , it's equally offensive to use the race card and call someone a racist when that just isn't the case. Are you not getting this? It's just facts. She said he whispers "acting" like a TABOO, and used "negro" to get her point across without using an offensive term. He then repeated it and said if he used both words in a sentence you'd be f*cked cause you wouldn't hear anything he said, cause he'd whisper it. You chose to make it a bigger deal because it's sure hits and that's the truth. The LA TIMES wrote an article on his interview in DETAILS. They pointed out the quote and saw what everyone else saw. They don't need the hits so they reviewed it fairly. You should check it out. Btw, this is the last time I visit your site. You can stop using the "racist" to bring you hits. Pathetic.

  • Carmen

    Shame on you Celebuzz- I'm now boycotting your site. Congrats! As a black woman myself I'm offended by YOU. You know damn well the word 'racist' isn't a word you throw around for cheap hits. That's a serious accusation. I've encountered racism a lot in my life. It's something that family members deal with on a daily basis. Stuff being said to us that gets me to tears. Maybe you are one of the fortunate ones that hasn't encountered actual racism. If you are 'truly' offended by what Mr. Pattinson said, then you need thicker skin and a bigger brain. Did you just get the this quote or did you actually read the article? It's so easy to try and knock him down, attempting to make this into something it's clearly not. What you wrote is pure hate and for what? A couple of hits?.. That's just sad. That was a low blow. I'm embarrassed for you.

    How do you dare make a fuss out of nothing? Jenny Lumet's mother Gail Lumet Buckley is African American herself. She served as a student counselor at the National Scholarship Service and Fund for Negro Students between the years of 1961-62. Gail's mom Lena Horne is one of the first African American actresses in Hollywood!I wonder if Gail knew she was racist by being a part of an organization that had the word Negro in it. A fund that served with pride under that name. It's easy calling people racist. What's not easy is repairing the damage you do by blaming innocent people. When there's hate so rampant all over the world I say SHAME ON YOU to anyone that publishes this crap without doing proper research, without thinking more than 2 minutes before spreading hate, before pointing the gun at someone. Learn to read... The N word was brought into the conversation like the shameful word it is when Rob was whispering the word actor in the same way...

    Looks like your little ploy to smear Rob's name did not work. I am defending him because he does not deserve to be called a racist. You sir are a disgrace to journalism. What was the point of this anyway? I hope his management gets wind of this and sues your a**. It's people like you who make this world unbearable to live in. Oh, what your doing is called defamation of character.

    He is not making any racial comments if you look into what they're talking about it, you'll see that he is not saying anything to bad. If he was black and said that about white people no one would care so what is the point in getting upset over it? Just because he is white? No I am not racist either. It is just ridiculous you guys act like it is a big deal when he really did not say anything bad.

    This is one of those really off the wall blogs that should probably just die a natural death, so I hesitate to comment, but of course will anyway. There are some things you can say about people and it just gets laughed off. Accusing someone innocent of being racist isn't one of them. To begin with being a Negro is not something to be embarrassed about. If you think it is, perhaps you are the racist. It is an old fashioned term, but since when is it a racial slur? It is a classification of people's genetic makeup like Caucasian or Occidental. None of the three are racial slurs. Rob Pattinson did not bring the word into the conversation, the interviewer, half Negro, did. Why does this make Rob Pattinson a racist? I would hope that if this continues or gets more blog time Jenny Lumet would step up and take some responsibility. If anyone has a problem with the word Negro it is apparently Ms. Lumet. People in this blog use the word Twihard as if it is a slur. Should all of the people, young and not so young, who love the books and the movies begin a blog about the slurs against Twilight fans? Maybe we can cast aspersions on their character in hopes of getting a few more hits on our blog. Be honest. You do not for one minute think that Robert Pattinson has racists motives in this interview. What an obvious attempt to discredit him this is. I have lost a great deal of confidence in Celebuzz. I guess you are just an online tabloid after all. And I mean that word in the most negative of ways. The word tabloid should be a slur to anyone who believes he or she is a journalist.

    Jenny Lumet, the interviewer, first used the term "negro" in the interview Jenny Lumet is of African American heritage. Her mother, Gail Lumet, Buckley, worked with the National Scholarship Service and Fund for Negro Student in the 1960's. Jenny Lumet's grandmother was Lena Horne, one of the first African American actor/singers to become a Hollywood star. Since Jenny Lumet brought up the term, and it made Robert Pattinson uncomfortable, he made a brief response that clearly is not racist. This is the last time I'll be going to Celebuzz online, since it's trying to create hate where none belongs.

    This isn't about defending Rob cause he's "cute" or "popular," nor does it matter what race the interviewer is. It's about this rash of idiotic articles being used to generate controversy, or hits for a website. No more from me. I agree with those comments regarding reading comprehension skills. I have them and was not in the least offended, because it was obvious that Jenny chose the word 'negro' BECAUSE it was shameful. When Rob coupled it with the word 'actor', it was wordplay. Lumet could have chosen any other loaded word and it still would have worked. Mayer knew exactly what he was doing, and it was rude, and he got called out. The world however, is still spinning on its axis. That BET comment was cheap, Kenneally. Before some of you start on black people for being "sensitive," look at who wrote the article.

    I know this is probably insignificant, but I'm still allowed to have an opinion on it.

I mean he could've just dismissed it, but he didn't :Z HOWEVER, I've been re-reading it, and I actually don't think he meant it in a racist way, you see, unlike most actors Pattinson is intelligent I think he was trying to joke, but it didn't work because no one else can understand it's like me saying....

    Apparently, reading comprehension is NOT a skill required by your company from its employees. He was not being racist. Like another poster said, Rob pretty much states that by using the words "actor" and "negro" in the same sentence would make it hard for anyone to hear him. He doesn't need to apologize for anything. You need to apologize to him for trying to stir up something that's not there. Move on.

    I don't understand, he said nothing wrong. Jenny Lumet (and she is mixed race as someone else mentioned it) just said that he is saying "acting" like it's a dirty word, like he is saying "negro", he's whispering..and then Rob joked, if they were acting like that, whispering, noone would hear anything. It's very clear what he meant and I find it very strange that this site is reporting this now when the article was available more that a week now. Any smart person who read the article can see what he meant and that he didn't even mention that first. If anyone should apologinze it's you Tim Kenneally!
