That’s right, yo. Neighbors With Attitude:
Pardon me for pointing it out. But thirty years later remembering a brief distant conversation outdoors by a pond, isn’t it quite possible Taylor heard the word neighbors, as opposed to the other? I doubt he’d hold up on the stand in a court of law.
George said ‘only the niggers around here eat em.’
The Allen camp released a statement from Allen’s first wife refuting Taylor’s story. Anne Waddell, who was married to Allen from 1980 to 1984, said she recalled Taylor coming to their home to buy a puppy.
“I can say with absolute certainty that his recollection that George said anything at all that could be considered racially insensitive is completely false,” she said. “He would never utter such a word.”
Waddell said, “I was the one who fished for the turtles in our pond because they were eating the young goslings. The person who ate the turtles was our neighbor.”
I didn’t think it was possible but I’m starting to feel sorry for Dan Riehl.
