Joaquin Phoenix makes art until someone gets punched in the face

March 12th, 2009 // 58 Comments

Joaquin Phoenix continues to shatter our perception of reality by pretending to beat up a fan at his “concert” last night in Miami, according to the AP:

He began rapping to a beat played by the DJ and nodding to the music, although most of the lyrics were unintelligible. Then he responded to someone who appeared to be heckling him in the audience near the stage.
“We have a (double-expletive) in the audience,” he said before jumping into the crowd. It was not immediately clear whether the two men exchanged any blows.
“I saw the guy screaming at Joaquin, and Joaquin just came down,” said Jorge Lledo, 30, of Miami Beach.

Joaquin yells at the guy “I’ve got millions of dollars in my fucking bank account, what do you got?” which lets me know right away this is a farce. With a cleverly-masked by a “documentary” heroin addiction like Joaquin’s, he’s lucky if has five maybe 10 bucks. Or a suitcase full of Pop Tarts.

    first

  2. You can Joaquin out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the hairlip…

    nevermind.

    That whole Phoenix family is completely fucked up. That’s what happens when you allow hippy liberal nutjobs to raise kids and also name them. They deserve to wallow in their own misery. Fuck em all. I hope he dies from an overdose outside the Viper Room too.

  4. It's Me Fuckers

    ROFL!! What a fucktard. At least I got to start my day with a laugh! =-)

    Andy Kaufman pulled this shit years ago, and it was stupid then too….

    .

  6. 33rd Airborne

    What a douchebag. David Letterman should have kicked his ass too.

  7. Virgodoll

    Wat’s wrong with him, he was such a fine actor

  8. Joaquin is so cool. I saw his profile and picture at http://www.smiletrain.org. I wonder what he is doing there?

  9. Bobby Big Dog Malone

  12. Deva

    What a douche.

  13. Racer X

    FAIL.

  14. douchebag hater

    I hope the guy he “beat up” takes Wackeems millions in a nice big lawsuit.

  15. the editor

    Wow, that was easily the most poorly written post of 2009. Way to keep lowering the bar.

    Learn some fuckin’ English.

  16. Charlie Caligula

    So fake. Kaufman would be ashamed.

  17. ITS HAPPENING..

  18. M_Phelps

    Some B-lister making a fool of him/herself, and a thousand camera phones to post/blog with. For Miami, that’s some quality entertainment.

  19. AndyisDEAD

    What a little pussy to start the fight and then yell for his security guards to “get him off me!” waahh………

  20. Ally

    I love his songs, Well, he looks really cool and man taste, I am wondering if he has a profile on the millionair e c l u b—”R i c h S i n g l e . N e t “? I saw a man”jackhey00″ looks like him very much, he must attract a lot of girls there.

  21. dooley

    I’m jealous – he’s got that many pop-tarts?

  22. Mdiz

    Kaufman would love this shit! Nobody has ripped off Andy yet, so kudos to the bearded one for trying. (Poorly i might add) It’s nice to see someone at least trying. We have enough Brits, Paris…..(Insert useless meatsack here)

  23. Jeff

    I love his new single, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9-ac6qO94c
    It’s not really him but that’s just another layer on the joke of his life right now.

  24. Kaufman! Kaufman! I am so kewl because I know that Kaufman pulled this years ago. Do u kidz still sey 1337 cuz that’s what I am?!

    OK I’M going 2 wack of 2 pics of Hayden Panetenehair from my parentz basemint whil3 stufing my 500 pound a$$ w/Doritos & TAC0 bell

  25. mai-tai

    lmao at the faces of the people running as old man rivers dives into the pit.

  26. Jrz

    Jesus Christ….can’t he just go back to being Hot, Brooding, Seething-Good Looks Joaquin instead of Weirdo Joaquin?

  27. Markus

    He’s pathetic.

  28. @23

    Great video! He is crazy as fuck!

  29. It’s fairly safe to say that Joaquin Phoenix keeps it RAL. Does he think he’s Axl Rose here? http://www.ikeepsitral.com

  30. Richard McBeef

    @29 – your website is major gay. the only thing being kept RAL around there is a huge cock RAL deep in your ass.

  31. This whole shtick he’s been doing is the best acting of his career so far…

  32. @ 31 …

    aww come on .. signs was the shit ..

    no, seriously.

    it was shit.

  33. Harry Crackpipe

    Cheesy, very cheesy, and cheap, very very cheap. No talent on display, none at all.

    Clearly he’s creatively challenged. He needs somebody else to write and direct while he acts, that is if he ever gets to act again. He has no imagination whatsoever.

    This was just pathetic and stupid.

  34. ctm

    I was actually staring at chick in the blue dress the whole time. Nice tits!

  35. RMC

    haha man this guy is losing it…he’s already made it on http://www.ikeepsitral.com twice becuase he is losing it…

  36. You Fucking Dolts

    You Fucking Dolts – you know- you, who thinks this is real-

    You are precisely why the world is going to shit.

  37. William

    I’m not buying a minute of this “Joaquin Phoenix is a rapper” BS… Andy Kaufman is rolling in his grave.

  38. Name (required):

    mmmmmmmmm……pop tarts….

  39. Name (required):

    BTW….who edits a FUCKING YOUTUBE VIDEO.
    Oh yeah…the username is iheartheathermills….figures…must be a fellow stumpy that didn’t want to offend anyone….LAME

  40. SoTe

    shit he seriously lost it… what a shame.

  41. fel

    Since he’s updated the Tony Clifton act, up next, he’ll have to start wrestling women and then start a fight with someone from WWE.

    One can only hope he will continue the Kaufman love, and develop lung cancer and die.

  42. Rob

    I actually like him a lot now. Good for him. If I were a famous actor, i’d be doing the same thing for no other reason just to amuse myself.

  43. --Jack

    Correction: “HAD a million dollars.” Within six months, that’ll be evenly split between the putz in the audience and some personal injury attorney.

    It’s like the hydrolytic cycle, but with money. From the poor to the rich, where it all condenses in a cloud and rains back down to the poor again. Sure am glad I paid attention in school. Now I just need to stand under a famous person and taunt my way to wealth!

    It’s not working.
    You’re not “edgy.”
    You’re not “underground.”
    Your’e not “laughing at us from behind the mask”
    This isn’t a grand experiment, and you don’t have the ability to pull off such a thing. Your buddy Affleck doesn’t have the skill either.
    We know you’re a joke.
    We know you pay actors and crowd members for reactions and photo ops.
    It’s not working.
    Your only entertainment value is that of an epic failure.

    Also,..there are many morons in the world who are rich (Paris Hilton) it’s not a good indicator of any “real” worth as a person.
