Apology of the Day: ‘Drunk Girl in Public’ Sorry for Hoax

While we have already learned that the "Drunk Girl in Public" video was a fake (is anything even real anymore?), now the actress hired to play said drunk girl is also speaking out.

Jennifer Box has released a video apologizing for the stunt Monday, which she says was originally pitched to her as a "lighthearted prank show."

She said she never would have participated if she had known the damaging outcome of the video. But isn't forever being remembered as "that drunk girl in public on Hollywood Boulevard" a good enough reason to turn it down?

The men in the video recently spoke up about the prank to Inside Edition and the mastermind behind the entire debacle, Stephen Zhang, has made the original video private, which had racked up millions of views since it aired.

Prank of the Day: German Town Turns Neo-Nazi March Into Anti-Nazi Fundraiser

Every year a bunch of neo-Nazis march through the German village of Wunsiedel to the former gravesite of Adolf Hitler's deputy Rudolf Hess.

This year, the town decided to do something about their Nazi problem by letting them continue to march, while at the same time, collecting money for an anti-Nazi group called EXIT-Germany.

For every meter they marched, local businesses agreed to donate money to the organization, and by the end of the day, they had raised about $12,500. The Nazis didn't know about the fundraiser until they saw signs along the route encouraging them and reporting on their progress.

You can watch the video above produced by the group who organized the event, "Right-wing Extremists Against Right-wing Extremists."
