Life Imitating Art ?

In 1992 Russell Crowe plays a racist in the movie Romper Stomper.

In 2004 Russell Crowe plays a racist in a Sydney cafe:

Student claims racist abuse

Russell Crowe allegedly hurled racist abuse at a Thai student after being upset about a pie he was served at a landmark Sydney eatery.

The 24-year-old female student said the incident took place while she was working at Harry's Cafe de Wheels last October.

She said Crowe didn't like the beef pie he ordered and became abusive.

"[He was] very abusive, aggressive," she told the Seven Network.

When Crowe was asked to leave, he allegedly told the student: "Do you know who I am?

"You should know this is not your country."

When asked what point Crowe was trying to make, the student said: "To go home."

The Oscar-winning actor was arrested in New York on Monday and charged with assault after allegedly hurling a telephone at a hotel employee.

Crowe was charged with assault in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree and faces up to seven years in a New York jail.

By the way, did'nt Russell migrate to Australia from New Zealand ? What a hypocrite.

The cafe in question, Harry's Cafe de Wheels, has many good reviews for their pies. I'd like to try some if I ever visit Australia. Should I bring a crowe-bar just in case ?

I'm shocked that he is racist.
