There Was A Warzone Outside Metta World Peace’s Condo, But He Saved The Day In Cookie Monster Pajamas

The weirdest story you’ll ever hear about Metta World Peace…. today.

Metta World Peace is an eccentric fellow, but even he could not have imagined the insanity that took place outside his residence early Tuesday morning. Without informing World Peace, actors from the Artest Media Group (which belongs to World Peace) decided to rehearse a scene for an upcoming movie in the wee hours of the morning outside World Peace’s building. This doesn’t seem like a big deal, but the scene in question featured fake guns, which witnesses mistook for, you know, actual guns. Someone called the police, and around that time, Metta World Peace woke up. This is his story, as gathered by the Los Angeles Times:

According to the LA Times, World Peace then put on Cookie Monster pajamas and went outside to survey the scene.

Once World Peace and the actors explained to police that the guns were fake and it was a movie rehearsal, the “police was laughing,” according to World Peace.

So, there you go. Metta World Peace has his own movie studio, and wears Cookie Monster pajamas. As if you expected anything less.
