France tells Real World cast to leave.
The Real World Paris cast members and crew have been told to leave France immediately or face imprisonment. Officials in France said the United States’ lack of unilateral support for food with their nation’s name in it would no longer be tolerated. “It’s really important to us that the United States change the name of ‘freedom toast’ back to ‘french toast,’ because nothing is more important to the people of France than recognizing the true origins of food, in this case the culinary contributions of an American in Albany named Joseph French who invented french toast.” Bunim-Murray producers were unphased by the demands and refused to pay the airfare for the cast members who wanted to return. “This is going to make great TV. Just wait until you see the episode where one of the cast members is beaten to death in the street by a mob that we incited,” the show’s director said.
