Actor and former NFL player Terry Cruz had some curt words for an interviewer who wanted to ask him questions about politics. Crews said, "I'm an actor. I just pretend." .
Luke Rudkowski of the We Are Change organization has an interesting history when it comes to interviewing people. He's known for going to huge press events and asking questions that would normally go unasked by the average journalist or representative from any mainstream news organization. He once had conversations with actor Chevy Chase and musician Stevie Wonder over President Obama and some of his controversial policies.
Some people don't seem to take too kindly to Luke's insertion of political dialogue into non-political events, however. When he spoke with actor and former NFL player Terry Crews at a recent press event, Crews suggested that he didn't want to talk about anything other than his career. Luke asked Crews about the State of the Union address and what he thought of President Barack Obama. Crews started off with a humorous response about the State of the Union preventing a new episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Things weren't so laid back after this. Rudkowski continued the conversation by asking Crews if he was okay with Obama "lying and spying on everyone illegally." They then had a quick talk on the NSA program and the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden, eventually leading Crews to say, "I don't get into that. I'm an actor. I just pretend."
Crews was caught on camera making comments about the nature of Luke's questions, suggesting that he "get off the carpet."
According to Luke Rudkowski's Facebook, the 45-year-old actor has blocked him but that isn't preventing Luke from reaching out for a follow-up interview. "I am offering @terrycrews a chance to study up and redeem himself for another interview plz let him know that since he BLOCKED me," Luke said on Facebook.
