Morning Express host duped on TV

Robin Meade Pranked by Marlon Wayans, HLN Staff

HLN's Robin Meade fell victim to a major punk-ing for April Fool's Day. It was hilarious.

She was interviewing actor and comedian Marlon Wayans, asking him to name which of his movies certain quotes were from.

When she asked which movie the line 'Hold on to your butts' was from, that's when things hit the fan. The quote is from 'Jurassic Park'..." a
nd was said by Samuel L. Jackson -- not Wayans.

Luckily, it was a set-up,
Wayans playing along and pretending to get really offended.

'It's about to get real up up in here. I'm callin' my boys. Woo Woo!!!' he said.

Our favorite part was when Robin tried to show the clip from the movie and producers told her they didn't have it. She flipped.

'You don't have a clip?!?!'

Robin thought all that was airing live, but really it was taped to show on April Fool's Day. After the big reveal, she explained what was going through her head...

'I'm gonna lose my house, I'm gonna lose my job, I'm not not gonna be able to pay my mortgage.'

The prank was an homage to that headline-making moment from February when a Los Angeles anchor confused Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne.

Definitely not the same person.

Happy April Fools' Day! 'Hold on to your butts.

Real or not, she said that she was worried about being fired, losing her house, etc. With the "at will" clauses that certain states have how would you like to be working for a company for let's say 20 years and one day be told, " We don't need you anymore."??? You are out, no reason, no cause, no previous write-ups, no arguments, no wrong doings, flawless performance reviews, people whom you work with rally around you, petitions are drawn up and presented, but YOU ARE STILL OUT! It happens every day to people who have only intentions of doing the best job and taking care of their family. Robin, your fear is not others reality.

Some people...especially people those who have problems with Black people, need to take a "chill pill." It was an April Fools prank! It was a joke!...it was not real! Also, you continue to say condescending remarks about Black people, about how we will not allow this race card issue alone....but it seems as though you are the one with the problem because no one is really talking about it but you. YOU keep the racial tensions in America going. As I have said before...pick up your six-pack and get out of the car sitting up on blocks in your front yard and go into your trailer and rest...it will do you good.

GOOD FOR YOU! You are so right! Only those with issues with black folk continue to make this asinine comments against us and then blame the President.

Racist, not racist. Racist, not racist. When is the U.S. going to put the racist card away for good and move on to better lives in a more tolerant country?

You do sound like a true American Patriot - underinformed but highly opinionated (as long as it's anonymous behind a computer). Man up! It really isn't too hard.

Y A W N N N N N N - Maybe an article about the catholic priest who purchased a 2.2 million dollar home while begging for money would have been more interesting - or the catholic priest in Germany who purchased a 43 million dollar home. WAIT - WHAT - those are real stories - I thought they were April Fools stories!!!!!

Right on Bob, No matter what you say......"just saying black, automatically makes you a racist or a bigot". And we wonder why whites and blacks can't get along. I for one, think this is B.S.

I've yet to see a black person get angry for being referred to as "black; it's usually the "N-word" that upsets them. And I know plenty, and I do mean PLENTY of blacks and white who get along great!!! Remember, the [hardcore] racists/bigots only make-up a small portion of the population.

Silly. Why was the thug pretending to be offended over nothing??? Typical reverse discrimination and a victim wannabe attitude.

As we are all aware America as it should be is being destroyed by this awful political correctness as shown from this event. Here we have some black thug fellow going into that same old tired victim wannabe offended nonsense over nothing and causeing an innocent situation to be aired as racist. As we all know the only racist are usually black.

Robin, you needn't have worried about losing your house. Should that ever happen, you have an open invitation to come live with me.... er, that is, if the wife says it's OK.

As long as they are chicken s*** and say it behind my back and don't have enough balls to say it to my face I'm 100 percent ok with it. I'd rather be a lion then a sheep coward
