Buffalo Wild Wings to Pull Rannazzisi Ads After 9/11 Controversy.

Buffalo Wild Wings said Thursday it was pulling its TV commercials featuring comedian Steve Rannazzisi after he acknowledged this week that he had lied about narrowly escaping the 54th floor of the south tower of the World Trade Center during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. “Upon careful review, we have decided to discontinue airing our current television commercials featuring Steve Rannazzisi,” the Minneapolis-based restaurant chain said in a statement. The ad campaign had been linked to the recent start of this NFL season and played off his television role as the commissioner of a fantasy football league on the popular FXX show “The League,” which is in its seventh and final 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 also has a one-hour special scheduled to air Saturday on Comedy Central, but the network has said it is still trying to decide what steps to take next.

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.

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.
