Apparently there was a segment from an old interview LL did and he wasn't down with it being used for Palin's new show.

Apparently there was a segment from an old interview LL did and he wasn't down with it being used for Palin's new show. Fox was typically classy in its response

 

In a statement, Fox News said: “Real American Stories” features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity and we believe Mr. Smith’s interview fit that criteria. However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career.

LL Cool J’s other acting credits include the films “Any Given Sunday” and “Deep Blue Sea,” and the television series “In the House.”
