Because just about anyone can write opinion pieces, Patt Morrison of the Los Angeles Times decided to call Zooey Deschanel a “snobby cow” after she overreacted to a joke Zooey made about the cleanliness of downtown Los Angeles’ parking lots while Prince William and Kate Middleton were visiting.

Let me be clear: the quote from USA TODAY that you used as the foundation of your piece was taken completely out of context. I NEVER said that Downtown LA was “the worst of LA”. I did make a reference to a parking lot adjacent to the theater that had a lot of trash in it in an attempt to be humorous. I simply said, “It’s funny they brought royalty here, there is a parking lot with trash around the corner.” It wasn’t an opinion. It was true. There was indeed a parking lot with trash around the corner. I thought that the juxtaposition of British Royalty and trash was amusing in a high-brow + low brow sort of way, but I never said that I, personally, didn’t like downtown, the Royals, or even trash. I LOVE DOWNTOWN LA and I relish any opportunity to spend time there. SOURCE

Meanwhile, Patt Morrison printed her own apology. And by apology, I mean she just strung a bunch of meaningless words together until her typewriter committed seppuku. Look, I know celebrities are generally fair game, but if you’re gonna call someone a “snobby cow” as the opening of your article, you better have a pretty valid reason, rather than just “I don’t understand what you’re saying. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE.”
