Oscar Theft Case
I’m Praying Terry Through This Mess …
Says Suspect’s Rabbi
3/7/2018 1:32 PM PST
The man accused of stealing Frances McDormand‘s Oscar has quite the support system — including his rabbi, who says the arrest is more about society than a guy allegedly making off with someone’s trophy.
Terry Bryant‘s arraignment was postponed Wednesday morning, but his attorney, Daniel Brookman, held a news conference outside court, where — no offense, counselor — rabbi Naomi Levy stole the show.
Levy told reporters Bryant’s “story” served as a commentary on our society and its “obsession with its 15 minutes of fame.” Hard to figure what the hell she meant … especially considering the new video showing Bryant brandishing Frances’ Oscar Sunday night, as he exited the Governors Ball!
Bryant’s attorney said his client will enter a not guilty plea once he gets in front of the judge — which we’re now hearing should happen late Wednesday or Thursday.
