TYRUS (CO-HOST): One of the golden rules is you never put your finger -- you keep it on the side, right? But then you'll have the director, who goes, "It doesn't look real." So, he puts his finger in there, he pulls it back, it doesn't take much to pull the trigger. He 1000% pulled the trigger. But that's not the issue. He could have literally pulled the trigger eight times. 

When that gun -- and this is what happens with equity hires and nepotism. Unqualified person who was -- how did the live rounds get in there? That's the question. Somebody was having target practice the night before, didn't clean or check the guns, and then a dirty gun was handed to Alec, saying it was clean.
