Orlando Bloom Blasted For Racism – Against Gypsies!
Uh, oh — Orlando Bloom is in trouble with gypsies.
The screen heartthrob, who played a pointy-eared elf in The Lord of the Rings flicks,
used the word “pikey,” a slur against gypsies meaning low-class,
to describe himself in a TV interview.
Now he’s being blasted as “racially abusive” by the National Gypsy-Traveller-Roma Council.
The BBC network offered an apology for the actor’s term.
Yeah, but Orlando never said a bad thing about elves.
