After being found guilty of imprisoning three women and assaulting one in his home, Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis apparently “shouted” his way through an interview with the Hollywood Reporter two weeks ago:

I want that jury to know that each and every one of you are mentally f–ing retarded and you should be euthanized because, as Darwin said, you have naturally selected yourself. You are the weakest members of the herd. Goodbye! And if that jury wants to convict me because I didn’t show up, which is the only reason why they did, then, you know, they should all be lined up and shot!

If you can stomach it, the full article is a masterpiece of entrancing monstrosity. If you can’t stomach it — say, you are about to eat lunch or are allergic to pigheaded martyr complexes — just know that it ends with Joe Francis imploring writer Stephen Galloway, “Don’t make me look crazy.”
