The head writer for the MTV Movie Awards has settled the debate: the stunt involving Sacha Baron Cohen and Eminem at the MTV Movie Awards was completely planned.
Comedy writing veteran Scott Aukerman wrote in a posting on his blog that the incident was staged and rehearsed in advance.
At Sunday's award show, Baron Cohen appeared in character as his gay fashionista Bruno. He fell on top of Eminem after being suspended above the crowd. The rapper appeared to find little humor in the stunt and stormed out.
Speculation was rampant over what was and wasn't real. Baron Cohen, Eminem and MTV have yet to comment on it.
Aukerman's posting has since been removed. His manager didn't immediately return a call Tuesday.

    A shining example of our society. A bad comedian that is politically incorrect getting more air time than our president.
