David Hasselhoff's "shaving accident"

Author:

It was no accident, and that should be obvious to everyone. What's not obvious is why. First, let's review.

He was in a London gym bathroom when he hit his head on a chandelier, showering his arm with broken glass, his publicist, Judy Katz, said.

Judy has done some work for me, and she's very good. Too good.

What you don't know about Mr. Hasselhoff might surprise you. Here's a flashback to over a year ago:

"Baywatch" and "Knight Rider," in which Hasselhoff co-starred with a car named Kit, may raise sniggers from highbrow critics at home but they are still going strong in India, and the actor said he had much in common with the escapism of Bollywood.

"I'm proud of shows like Baywatch and Knight Rider because it's about saving lives, not taking lives," he told Reuters.

"It's entertainment, it's tongue in cheek, it brings the world together," he said, adding that the entertainment industry was a powerful force for good in the world.

"I think it's responsible for a lot of world peace..."

Who do you know who might take offence at remarks like that? Who do you know who might be opposed to such a good will ambassador?
