Famous people, especially Academy Award winning actors, are usually granted a few passes from the general public if they do something terrible. It’s a shame that Cuba Gooding Jr. used his passes on Boat Trip and Daddy Day Camp because he could use one after assaulting a woman in New Orleans.
According to everything I’ve read about the situation (which is about one third of that article above) Cuba Gooding Jr. became upset when people were taking pictures of him at a bar. He then put on a Winnie the Pooh costume and started yelling, “Show me the honey!!” When a bartender asked him to leave he slammed a jar of honey on her head, thus resulting in the assault charge.
Again, I didn’t read the whole article so that might not be the exact story.
