Actor’s 9/11 lies end his gig in commercials.

Restaurant chain Buffalo Wild Wings Inc said on Thursday it would stop airing commercials featuring comedian and actor Steve Rannazzisi after he admitted that he lied about his personal experience of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. “Upon careful review, we have decided to discontinue airing our current television commercials featuring Steve Rannazzisi,” Buffalo Wild Wings said in a statement. Rannazzisi, one of the stars of U.S. sitcom “The League,” had previously claimed he had been working at investment bank Merrill Lynch’s offices on the 54th floor of the South Tower when the first plane struck the North Tower. It is a giant blow for the restaurant chain, who had planned to use the actor in their new commercials which had just begun airing for the football season.

In interviews following his rise to fame, the Paul Blart: Mall Cop star gave several accounts of his daring escape on 9/11, and alleged his wife also survived the atrocity unscathed. Rannazzisi only came clean about this lie – in which he also detailed having difficult dreams about what happened that day – when confronted by The New York Times.

Loftus—a Stanford-educated psychologist now at the University of California at Irvine who has been called “Doctor Memory” for her extensive and revolutionary work—further noted that in 2008 Hillary Clinton had put a similar twist on reality when recalling a visit to Bosnia a dozen years before. “I remember landing under sniper fire,” Clinton said. “There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” The truth is that Clinton was greeted in total safety by an 8-year-old Muslim girl who read her a poem. The paper reached out to the actor after they could find no evidence that he had ever worked at Merrill Lynch, and after waiting an entire day he finally provided them with a statement. The self-styled champion of children erased that moment in favor of a self-glorifying fantasy in which she dodged sniper bullets—the same way Williams was fired upon and Rannazzisi escaped a stricken tower. I am truly, truly sorry.” Following the comedian’s apology, the network said on Wednesday, “We are very disappointed to hear about Steve’s misrepresentations and are currently determining how we will move forward.” He continued trying to explain his actions, saying; ‘For many years, more than anything, I have wished that, with silence, I could somehow erase a story told by an immature young man.

Loftus has demonstrated in a host of experiments that the memory is not the faithful recorder we imagine it to be, that it can conjure in retrospect what we wish happened. She reports that people have been known to recall getting better grades than they actually received or having voted more wisely in an election than they really had. The brother proceeded to construct an elaborate memory that wove the provided elements together with imagined ones he was convinced were true even though he had manufactured them. “The American people don’t have to guess whether I’m ready to lead or whether I understand the realities on the ground,” she told a St. It is to the victims of 9/11 and to the people that love them – and the people that love me – that I ask for forgiveness. “It was profoundly disrespectful to those who perished and those who lost loved ones. The dead included 17 SEALs, five Navy special warfare operators, and eight other U.S. service members who perished when a rocket-propelled grenade struck their CH-47 Chinook in 2011.

Whether the lie be auto-suggestion or just cheap aggrandizement, whether the liar be Brian Williams or Hillary Clinton or Steve Rannazzisi, it all begins with the same thing: a disgraceful lack of respect for those who went through it for real.
