Rubin’s gaffe is not surprising. I remember watching him and Roger Ebert cover the red carpet at the Oscars in the early 2000’s . The superficial and ignorant B.S. that spewed out of Rubin’s mouth as he “interviewed” arriving celebrities was cringe inducing. Ebert would ask the arriving actor/actress an intelligent question about the film, his/her performance, etc. and Rubin would interrupt their answer with, “So how ‘bout those shoes? Where’d you get those?”. Ugh. Just…ugh. Hopefully, this will be a wake-up call to him and others in his line of work to do some serious research before each and every interview.
