Comedian’s response to TMZ’s Ireland diss is hilarious


Comedian Cormac Moore decided to ring TMZ live on his radio show to vent his frustration after a recent video in which the TMZ crew discussed Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s recent trip to Dublin.

In the video, they said Irish people didn’t know who Beyoncé  and Jay-Z were, claimed that we were 15 years behind the US and then went on to say that Jay-Z put Dublin “on the map”.

Well, as you can imagine, Cormac was as incensed as we were.

Leaving a voicemail for TMZ that you can listen to below, Cormac blasts the gossip site and tells them things about Ireland they clearly don’t know such as who actually put us on the map (hint: it wasn’t Jay-Z) and why we managed to leave the couple and their young daughter alone on their family trip to Phoenix Park.

The thing that annoyed people most about the TMZ video was that there was an Irish guy joining in. Peter O’Riordan was the one who said that Queen Bey and Jay Z were able to walk around without hassle because Irish people “wouldn’t know who they are”.

Peter now claims on his Twitter account that what he said on the show was edited and he has no power over this: “I don’t edit the tv show , nor can I speak for any of my co workers or my boss. Slan go foil”.
