Comedian Lied About 9/11 Escape

Comedian Steve Rannazzisi admits he lied about escaping from the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, after questioning by The New York Times. “I was not at the Trade Center on that day,” he said in a statement. “I don’t know why I said this. This was inexcusable. I am truly, truly sorry.” Rannazzisi repeatedly said he was working at Merrill Lynch’s offices in the South Tower when the North Tower was hit. “I was there and then the first tower got hit and we were like jostled all over the place,” he said in 2009. Rannazzisi is a star of FX’s The League and is the new face of a Buffalo Wild Wings campaign.
