LL Cool J rips FOX and Sarah PalinSarah Palin loves Cool James, but the feeling isn't mutual. Rap legend and actor LL Cool J was included in the Palin-hosted 'Real American Stories,' airing on FOX News on Thursday, but the network never asked him to participate.

"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," the real-life James Todd Smith told his Twitter followers Tuesday night. "WOW," he added.

In response, FOX has decided to strip the rapper from the program at the last minute. In a snark-dripped statement issued to TV Newser, the cable news giant says, "As it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."
