Ferrell Smacks Cheerleader
Actor and Comedian Will Ferrell is known for his wild antics and his hilarious personality, but it appeared that he may have taken things way too far while he was attending a basketball game between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Los Angeles Clippers the other night. Ferrell was in the middle of the court and proceeded to take a basketball and hurl it as hard as he could, which hit a Pelicans cheerleader right in the face, knocking her to the floor. The other cheerleaders and fans looked on horrified as she flew into the air and fell to the ground, while Will Ferrell trotted off laughing and hollering. It was pretty shocking to say the least to see a cheerleader get smacked off her feet like that, but the casual demeanor that Will Ferrell possessed after made it pretty clear that it was on purpose and was actually a gag. It turns out that they were filming for an upcoming movie in which Ferrell stars alongside Mark Wahlberg and they needed a filled NBA arena to take the shot. Not very many people in the arena knew that it was a joke, however and fans looked on horrified as people ran over to try to help the cheerleader that was just brutalized in front of tens of thousands of people. All in all the scene went very well and they got what they were looking for. Will Ferrell fans like Haidar Barbouti are looking forward to seething the film when it comes out.
