Jeremy Piven Slams Ben Roethlisberger: ‘Rapistberger’

Jeremy Piven of “Entourage” fame is not happy with the line-up for the Super Bowl. On February 6, the Green Bay Packers will face the Pittsburgh Steelers. Piven, dissatisfied with this matchup, would have preferred the Chicago Bears, his favorite team, and the New York Jets.

Like his “Entourage” character Ari Gold, Piven’s mouth got him in trouble.

In describing the upcoming Super Bowl, Piven stated, “Now its Rapist-berger and the cheese heads.” He was met with more laughter as he blurted, “the cheesy rape burger.” The footage of Piven using this less-than-flattering language in description of Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was met with some controversy as the video was quick to hit TMZ.com.

It turns out that Piven had not intended for such comments to have been recorded. Piven asked, “He just videotaped that?” as a TMZ cameraman left the scene, after recording the entire spectacle. The cameraman responded to Piven, asking, “Is that ok?” An exasperated Piven replied, “Oh no.”

Piven made the comments about Roethlisberger in reference to charges in 2009 and 2010, as women had claimed the Steelers’ star had sexually assaulted them. Roethlisberger was suspended from the NFL, though he has yet to be charged by the police.
