CNN’s Jake Tapper, Actor Will Forte ‘Brawl’ at Charity Softball Game


Tensions were high in Kansas City when CNN anchor Jake Tapper and actor Will Forte broke out in a “brawl” during a celebrity softball game on Friday.

As part of the “Big Slick Celebrity Weekend” charity events––raising money to benefit Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City––a fight brewed between Tapper and Forte at third base, which caused both teams to clear their benches.

Amidst the chaos, Forte, an SNL alum and star of the television show The Last Man On Earth, ran to home plate to score for his team.

No celebrities were actually harmed.

Also attending the game were actor/comedian Rob Riggle, who hosted the event, Weird Al Yankovic, Johnny Knoxville, and Paul Rudd.

You can watch KCTV’s report on the game (including footage from the brawl) above.
