Robert Downey Jr. Goes On Abusive And Psychotic Rant About Krishnan Guru-Murthy

Robert Downey Jr Krishnan Guru-Murthy

He uses some of the most creative insults I’ve ever heard.

You probably saw last week that Robert Downey Jr. got pretty angry during an interview he was having with Krishnan Guru-Murthy and stormed out halfway through it, after Guru Murthy had questioned him about his alcoholic and drug fuelled past.

Speaking to Howard Stern – who else? – Downey Jr. revealed that he didn’t regret his actions during the interview and went on a full on rant about Guru Murthy, using some of the most creative insults I’ve ever heard. These included ‘a syphilitic parasite’ and ‘a bottom-feeding muckraker’, as well as the more regularly used ‘clown’ and ‘weirdo’.

Unfortunately there isn’t video of the show – it’s a radio show, duh – but you can listen to the whole thing below. It’s safe to say that Robert Downey Jr. probably won’t be returning for any interviews with Krishnan any time soon, but he probably should have been prepared for this anyway after his notorious Quentin Tarantino interview from a couple of years ago.
