Fake gamblers in a real casino???
The casino removed dozens of gaming tables and about 400 slot machines to make room for the award show’s red carpet. People seen gambling directly behind the red carpet were cast by MTV and not playing with real chips.
wHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU DO SUCH A THING? Since I am in business school, I am going to think business: I guess they didn’t want to get sued for showing real gambling to 12 million thousand kids watching the show… so if anyoneasked, it was staged.
Now I don’t know how far you can push my theory considering that the whole thing was help in a casino (Palms Hotel and Casino) but they could claim it was all a show…
Anyway, for those who are lazy, here is a news search on the Palm. Link to original story below:
