Buffalo Wild Wings Severs Ties With “League” Star Who Lied About 9/11 Experience.

(Tibrina Hobson/Getty) Comedian/actor Steve Rannazzisi has sensationally confessed he lied about escaping from the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 after terrorists crashed hijacked planes into the Twin Towers. 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. In the wake of the actor’s confession, BWW said it was “reevaluating our relationship” with Rannazzisi, and now it looks like that relationship has been terminated. “Upon careful review, we have decided to discontinue airing our current television commercials feature Steve Rannazzisi,” the wing chain said in a statement to Bloomberg. 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.

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. However, he has now admitted the entire account of his actions on 9/11 was made up after he was challenged over inconsistencies in his story by reporters at The New York Times. 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.

With The League‘s seventh and final season debuting earlier this month, Rannazzisi had just begun a new gig starring in commercials for Buffalo Wild Wings, playing up his association with the FXX show about a group of friends who are a little too serious about fantasy football. I am truly, truly sorry.” Rannazzisi was also called out by SNL comedian Pete Davidson via a bit of dark humor on Twitter, though he didn’t understand the joke. 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.
