Road Trip and Hustle & Flow actor DJ Qualls got beat up by a Canadian this weekend. As embarrassing as that sounds, in all fairness, it was a cop that attacked Qualls. The alleged beating took place when Qualls (who was in Vancouver to film an episode of Supernatural) witnessed a “multi dude fight” and then “saw a dude punch a girl.” When trying to explain what he witnessed to an arresting officer he was inexplicably threatened and then attacked and handcuffed.
As confusing and needless as this crime seems, perhaps it wasn’t a miscommunication or random chance. Perhaps the officer knew full well who he was attacking and was actually upholding justice… Canadian Justice.
Here are seven potential reasons DJ Qualls may have got his ass beat.
Qualls claims that the officer who beat him repeatedly asked, “You think you’re f***ing better than me?” This leads me to surmise that the officer is also an aspiring actor who has grown jaded and disillusioned by the audition process. He’d probably read for the part on the CW‘s Supernatural and thought he had it in the bag. Then Mr. Hustle & Flow swooped in using his past credits to steal the role out from underneath him.
It’s a little known fact, but Joel David Moore actually has 47 warrants out for his arrest in Canada. This all stemmed from an incident at a Toronto Maple Leafs’ game in 2009 where he wouldn’t offer his seat to Dave Foley. I’m told there’s also a hefty reward.
E.L. and the guys certainly seem like they know what they’re talking about but then again, they’re only college students. How did they get to become experts? Actually, E.L.’s track record is pretty spotty. Wasn’t it enough when he blew up DJ Qualls’ car? And it’s not the first time he’s caused a fight to break out. Whatever he did to anger the Canadian Mounties must be pretty extreme to prompt a beating like this.
