Tom Arnold & Mark Burnett

Tom Arnold Claims ‘Apes**t’ Mark Burnett Attacked Him At Pre-Emmys Party

A source tells ET that the altercation between Tom Arnold and reality TV producer Mark Burnett at a pre-Emmys party on Sunday night was a "publicity stunt" on Arnold's part.

Actor Patton Oswalt posted a photo with Tom Arnold shortly after the alleged assault.

OK... so here's the deal... this fight/incident/alleged attack/whatever the hell is going on didn't come out of nowhere. The show follows Arnold's attempts to find tapes that show Donald Trump expressing bigoted views on the set of The Apprentice, which Burnett produces.

Burnett denies such tapes exist but Arnold is hosting an upcoming Vice show titled 'The Hunt for the Trump Tapes, ' which premieres on Tuesday. Arnold claimed the former "Apprentice" producer choked him at a party on Sunday, September 16.

As for this fight itself?

Matthew Belloni, the editorial director of The Hollywood Reporter, tweeted that he spoke to Arnold's attorney, who called the confrontation an "unprovoked attack" by Burnett.




Wonder if Trump will tweet about this! Ha! "I'd like him to stand up and say, 'actually, we had to cut out all the lies and sexual harassment and the insanity and the incompetence, we had to cut all that out.' That's the tape I want".

Burnett's wife Roma Downey (from Touched by an Angel in case this story didn't have enough 90's references) tweeted a photo of a bruise on her hand with a caption that said that Arnold "ambushed" her husband.

"Is your TV show worth it Tom?" she asked. "I'm filing police report and suing you for defamation". "It's cruel... and Mark Burnett says he's a Christian".

Arnold also claims that there was a fourth person, filmmaker Bryan Fogel, who witnessed the entire ordeal, and started to filmed it before Downey knocked his phone from his hand. Arnold was a friend of Trump's for decades before Trump was elected president, and since then Arnold has been trying to expose him. In the video, he requests an interview with Burnett.

"Mark Burnett, Tom Arnold is there anyway that we could get together and talk?"

"About my show, and uh, Trump". The answer was no.
