April 20, 2012 at 1:14 PM (PT)
Syndicated morning host BERT WEISS of The BERT Show has had quite a week. First, he discussed the issue of bullying on HEADLINE NEWS. Even more important was a school project of his nine-year-old son led to a once-in-a-lifetime meeting with the legendary boxer.
His son, HAYDEN, was assigned to do a class biography on a "Great American;" he chose ALI. The thing was: HAYDEN wanted to present his biography "as" MUHAMMAD ALI, clad in a boxing robe and boxing gloves ... and he also wanted make his skin brown to accurately look like "THE CHAMP."
Thus, the quandary. It created a firestorm of comments during the show's and on its FACEBOOK page. WEISS went so far as to pen a letter to ALI to detail the situation and ask for his opinion.
Believe it or not, ALI responded to him and HAYDEN ... in person.
