L.A. Fugitive Christopher Dorner Reveals Strong Opinions on Hollywood in Bizarre Manifesto
TV Ratings: Local L.A. News Audience Surges During Dorner Coverage
As a massive manhunt presses on in search of former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, who stands accused of killing two civilians and a police officer this week, the suspect's rambling, chilling manifesto -- which contains, among the names of suspected targets, a long list of celebrities and media figures he admires -- has left Hollywood shocked.
Among the Hollywood figures called out in the document, which was posted to Dorner's Facebook page, is director Todd Philips, director of The Hangover movies.
"It’s kind of sad I won’t be around to view and enjoy The Hangover III," Dorner writes. "What an awesome trilogy. Todd Phillips, don’t make anymore Hangovers after the third, takes away the originality of its foundation."
Dorner also proves himself to be a fan of the zombie genre, writing, "World War Z looks good and The Walking Dead season 3 (second half) looked intriguing."
Charlie Sheen, Dorner writes, is "effin awesome."
He singles out Ellen DeGeneres for her "excellent contribution to entertaining America and bringing the human factor to entertainment." He also credits her with shaping how the country views "the LGBT community."
Christoph Waltz's Oscar-nominated performance in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained showed "glimpses of Daniel Day-Lewis and Morgan Freeman-esque type qualities of greatness," Dorner writes. He also praises the actor's Oscar-winning turn in Inglourious Basterds.
A list of the "most beautiful women on this planet" includes Oscar winner Kate Winslet, Kelly Clarkson, Laura Prepon, Margaret Cho and Queen Latifah.
Screen composer Hans Zimmer, Eric Clapton, Metallica, Jay-Z and Rob Zombie are singled out for musical greatness.
Dorner also proves himself to be a fan of comedy, citing Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Louis C.K., Dave Chappelle, Lisa Lampanelli, Wanda Sykes and Jeff Ross as "pure geniuses."
Bill Cosby gets his own paragraph at the end of the manifesto, in which Dorner implores the comedian not to "mute your unvarnished truthful speech or moral compass."
Also praised in the manifesto is a long list of broadcast media figures, including MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, whom he says he once met, and Anderson Cooper of CNN, whom he admires but suggests must "stop nagging and berating" his guests. CNN's Fareed Zakaria, he writes, has never "uttered a positive word about America" and thus deserves to be deported, while Piers Morgan deserves "indefinite resident alien" status.
"I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws," Dorner writes in a moment of stunning irony.
Dorner remains on the run from the law.
