James O’Keefe Thrown Out of Movie Premiere — About James O’Keefe!

President and founder of Project Veritas, James O’Keefe purchased a ticket to the world premiere of ‘Acorn and the Firestorm’ at the TriBeCa film festival and was kicked out by security.

**UPDATE** — We spoke with James O’Keefe on Sunday and he said that he bought his ticket to the premiere but was not allowed inside. He then went outside and was handing out fliers. That’s when attendees came out and yelled and cursed at him outside of the premiere. As usual, the liberals are the ‘tolerant’ ones extending compassion.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

James O’Keefe says he was “kicked out” of the premiere despite being in the movie, but co-director Reuben Atlas tells THR that O’Keefe had only a “small part” after failing to respond to interview requests and was “surprised” to see him there.

A conservative political activist and investigative journalist caused a stir Sunday night at the world premiere of ACORN and the Firestorm at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The documentary explores how the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a group of more than 400,000 left-leaning members, became a major player in the 2008 presidential election that resulted in Barack Obama’s victory and was subsequently taken down by the strategic efforts of conservatives, including exposé videos from a then-budding media entity spearheaded by Andrew Breitbart. The group also was aided by conservative activists James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, who posed as a pimp and prostitute in an effort to expose ACORN’s business practices using a hidden camera.

O’Keefe sent out a series of tweets….

“They just kicked me out of the movie that is about me at the TriBeCa film festival. I had a ticket.”

“Situation developing outside TriBeCa film festival. Bodyguards were told not let me in. People were screaming and cursing at me everywhere.”

James sent out flyers outside of the premiere correcting the lies from the movie.
