This Dude Had The Biggest Choke Of All Time On '$100,000 Pyramid'

Not everyone does well under stress, and few of us have to endure pressure like a contestant on a game show. Picture it—you’re in front of a live audience of 50 or so people, you’re on camera to be broadcast to millions more, perhaps there’s a celebrity guest…not to mention the fact that there’s usually a huge pile of money on the line.

This has been known to produce some pretty great gaffes and faux-pas in the past, but Evan Kaufman’s appearance on the recent revival of ABC’s '$100,000 Pyramid' is one for the ages.


Yup, he just conflated former Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden with Barack Obama, the former President of the United States. Which, to be fair, is a pretty common comparison made by the alt-right. But Kaufman wasn't trying to make a political statement. Later, in a Twitter thread, he explained that he didn't mean to lump a former president with a former enemy of the state.



Sure, this seems like a pretty reasonable explanation, once put like that, but it might now matter in today's online culture. Where internet trolls are likely to write, "TL;DR, you’re a racist now."

Rock icon David Crosby is not one to mince words - even when criticizing himself, which is a recurring theme in the new documentary 'David Crosby: Remember My Name.' And he's just as unapologetically candid when the cameras are off, I learned after chatting with Crosby over the phone to discuss the premiere of the doc, which opens this weekend (July 19) in New York and Los Angeles. So far, the doc has received excellent reviews from critics who find his frankness refreshing in an age when so many public figures are afraid to go off script and drop their filters. "Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.
