Last week, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest joked on his radio show that if he could use a taser on one reality star, he would choose Heidi Montag.
Naturally, her husband-pimp Spencer Pratt took exception to the remark and issued a statement to generate some free publicity defend her honor.
"I'm disgusted and horrified that Ryan Seacrest would find it amusing and entertaining to have his listeners call in about tasing anyone," he said.
"What's next, guns and knives? Waterboarding? It is irresponsible and offensive for someone with your platform to promote violence on this level."
"For someone who produces reality content for a living, I'm shocked that you would encourage people to tase reality TV stars. Would it be funny to you if one of your Kardashians got tased? Is that how you would treat your talent, Ryan?"
Ryan Seacrest, of course, produces Keeping Up with the Kardashians, starring Khloe, Kourtney and Kim. Eh, we'd live if one or all got tasered.
Spencer Pratt is looking for a fight with Ryan Seacrest after a hilarious comment the American Idol host made. Heidi Montag could use a nice taser jolt, don'cha think?
Prior to his radio show, Seacrest Tweeted as a "funny topic" who you would most like to see tasered: Heidi Montag, Omarosa from The Apprentice, Tila Tequila (this was before Shawne Merriman choked her) and Daisy de la Hoya.
Not surprisingly, despite the formidable competition, Heidi won.
"Finding humor in violence is disgusting," Spencer Pratt added. "For someone who pretends to be mister clean-cut America, you should be ashamed. Any reasonable person knows that a taser isn't a Super Soaker and can cause immediate death."
Come on, Spencer. Brody Jenner was just fine the other night.
"I expect an apology not to just us, but to people everywhere for using your public voice to spread violence," Pratt concluded, his mission accomplished, similar to when he pretended to be offended by insults from Anderson Cooper.
