The Truth About What Happened To Mr. T

The Truth About What Happened To Mr. T

Mr. T. rose to fame in 1982 with his appearance
in Rocky III as Rocky’s nemesis Clubber Lang, then truly became a star the following year
with his role as B.A. Baracus in the hit TV series The A-Team. Less commonly known by his real name, Laurence
Tureaud, Mr. T was ever-present on TV screens for more than a decade of domination. His star’s fallen to some extent over the
years, leaving audiences worldwide wondering: does he still pity fools? Here’s the truth about what happened to Mr.
T. Still a pitchman Outside of his acting roles, Mr. T may be
best known as an advertising pitch man. Whether he’s hawking Snickers bars, his own
cereal, or World of Warcraft, his ads have always been able to get your attention, if
nothing else. “Now you can have the greatest hair in the
World of Warcraft with the mohawk grenade. Yeah, wherever I go I’m making Warcraft
look gooood!” Recently he’s appeared in ads for Fuze Iced
Tea, in which he makes it clear that the years have done nothing to affect his charisma. Seriously, he might be ageless. You can judge for yourself, but he looks exactly
the same. “The only thing bolder than Fuze Iced Tea
is me!” Wrestling Hall of Fame Mr. T may have entered the popular consciousness
as a fictional boxer in 1982’s Rocky III, but by 1985, the actor behind Clubber Lang
had made the leap to real wrestling, serving as tag-team partner to Hulk Hogan versus “Rowdy”
Roddy Piper and Mr. Wonderful at the inaugural WrestleMania. This gave rise to a feud which lasted years
between Mr. T and Piper, who already had little respect for the actor-turned-wrestler. “There was no love in that ring.” Some felt he’d never paid his dues as a performer
in the ring, but when Mr. T was finally inducted into the WWE’s Hall of Fame in 2014, he and
Piper finally made peace the old fashioned way: on Twitter. Battling cancer One of the reasons Mr. T decreased his workload
was his 1995 cancer diagnosis for T-cell lymphoma. He took on the unwelcome opponent the only
way he knew how — aggressively — telling Coping with Cancer magazine, quote, “Can you
imagine that? Cancer with my name on it. Personalized cancer.” “I’ve been through alot in my life. I’ve faced some tough opponents. But now it’s time to face my toughest opponent
of all…me.” He wrote an as-yet unpublished book on his
experience with author Joyce Brooks, called Cancer Saved My Life (Cancer Ain’t For No
Wimps), in which he said, quote, “If you don’t remind me that I have cancer then I won’t
remember either, because I am too busy living.” “It’s a blessing. I’ve been, uh, I’m a cancer survivor for
12 years, you know, so I’ve been through a lot, you know. It’s uh…been peaks and valleys, you know. Every day, you don’t feel 100%, but uh…I
made it through.” A whole world’s worth of fools In 2011, Mr. T set up shop across the Atlantic
for a show on BBC 3 called World’s Craziest Fools. “We got fools with chainsaws. We got fools breakin’ the law. We got karate fools with fists flyin’, and
feet jumpin’ all over the place.” A compendium of “can-you-believe-this” clips
captured from cameras around the world, the show ran for 20 episodes before going off
the air in March of 2013. The show, a throwback in the age of YouTube,
also used animated segments to illustrate the antics of more egregious fools. The series looked like it was going to be
a hit, but it ended after two short seasons. “Never celebrate too early.” I Pity the Tool Mr. T surprised both Al Roker and the rest
of America in 2015 when he paid a visit to the Today show to make an unexpected announcement:
a new home improvement show called I Pity the Tool. “I majored in brick masonry. I did carpentry. So I know what I’m doing. I’m good with my hands, whether fighting
or building.” The DIY Network aired one episode of I Pity
the Tool and as yet hasn’t commented on whether or not they’ll follow up with more. The reason why is a mystery, owing to either
viewer turnout or something more behind-the-scenes. Is it a pity? Seems likely. “Don’t be dumb and hit your thumb!” Mister Tweet Mr. T doesn’t just pity fools — he turns
that pity into positive action through his uplifting Twitter feed, which is full of good
vibes and support informed often by his born-again Christian faith, along with comments on the
world as he sees it. He explained his philosophy during a eulogy
for First Lady Nancy Reagan, saying, quote, “I am not a Republican nor am I a Democrat. I am just a Christian Brother from the Hood
trying to do some good!” Often heard and not seen Starting with his ’80s Saturday morning cartoon
series, sensibly titled Mister T, our mohawked friend has stayed busy doing voice work for
a variety of projects — from cartoon series like Eek! The Cat, Sabrina the Animated Series, and
Pecola, through TV movies like the 1987 version of Alice Through the Looking Glass, in which
he played the Jabberwocky. “One little girl? Ho ho ho! Piece of cake!” He’s even been heard on the big screen in
recent years through his work as the voice of Earl Devereaux in 2009’s hit animated feature
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. “My chest hairs are tingling. Something’s wrong!” And gamers of a certain age have no doubt
recognized his dulcet tones in the Lego Dimensions game, in which he appeared as his A-Team character,
B.A. Baracus. “That’s B.A. Baracus. The B.A. stands for…” “…bad attitude!” Some heroes are simply timeless. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

  2. It’s kind of ironic how Mr. T was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma cancer Not funny. Just ironic….ok maybe a tad bit funny

  3. You mean Michael Cohen LIES about President Trump. You can SAY whatever you want, whether it's true or not. He's lying through his teeth. When they eject Trump and we get a democrat in the White House, you'll see just how fast this country goes straight to hell. The democrats are just pissed and hell bent on ousting Trump because they KNOW he's doing good and he's right and they just can't stand the truth. Sucks to be them.

  8. I went to Dunbar high school in Chicago with Mr. T during the late 1960s. He was on the high school wrestling and football team. He live in the public housing buildings the Robert Taylor Homes on a dangerous south side part of Chicago. He was not a bully. He was a very nice honorable student at Dunbar Vocational High School in Chicago.

  9. The Mathematical Proof for Mr. T's Infinite Pity: For life to exist there must be a symmetric equation regarding the factors of pity(p) and fools(f) -> p-f=0. If any one factor rose to a level higher than the other, life as we know it would cease to exist. The fool factor can be decisively measured by dividing jibba-jabba(j) by tolerance for said jibba-jabba(t) -> f=j/t. With these two equations we can deduce: p-f=0; f=j/t ->p-(j/t) = 0 -> p = j/t. This equation leads to quite an interesting result. As we can see, if we hold jibba-jabba constant, as tolerance for said jibba-jabba approaches 0, pity approaches infinity. Now we all well know that Mr. T “ain’t got no time for the jibba-jabba.” In fact, extensive observational studies have been conducted and even with machines able to calculate with precision to the 23rd decimal place, Mr. T’s tolerance for jibba-jabba has been conclusively found to be 0, and therefore Mr. T’s pity is the literal embodiment of the concept of infinity.

    After hurricane Katrina he didn’t wear his trademark gold chains because he didn’t want to come across as in unsympathetic to those who lost everything. ( so I’ve heard)

  16. The man, the myth… True stand up man.. Met him at Gerald R Ford Airport back in 2003. He sat and spoke with me for a hour on life, and knowledge.. Very smart and talented man.. Love ya T.. Thanks for making the A-team the A-team…
