Streisand's Husband Angers Listeners With 9/11 Comments
The star replied, "Right, oh, yeah, Happy 9/11!", later adding, "Ha, ha, ha! I hear silence. Celebrate the day, right?"
Chaz explained, "Yeah, well, we're right outside of New York, and I know people who lost family members, so . . . we don't say, 'Happy 9/11' around here," before Brolin attempted to cover up his remarks by calling the events of September 11 "a horrible situation."
He was then cut off by Chaz who returned the discussion to that of Brolin's movie.
Ed Sabatino, WPLR's program director, tells the New York Post the station has fielding hundreds of complaints from listeners over Brolin's insensitivity.
Jeff Wald, Brolin's manager, insists the star's comments were not intentional, and he was "horrified by it (9/11). It was an off-the-cuff remark."
