Cop Gets Apology For Being Defamed On Fox's Tupac/Biggie Documentary
(AllHipHop News) The LA County Sheriff's Department is not happy with a recent documentary about the murder of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
On Sunday (September 24), Fox aired a documentary special titled "Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?" hosted by Soledad O'Brien and Ice-T.
The Sheriff's office is claiming they were defamed during the special, which accused the department of screwing up the investigation in the murders.
According to TMZ.com, Stephen D. Katz Was misidentified several times as the lead investigator into the case, which was actually handled by the LAPD
To make matters worse, the documentary special showed images of Katz multiple times, along with incorrectly identifying him.
The LA County Sheriff's Department demanded an apology from Fox, or else they plan to sue for defamation of character - and they received it today (September 26).
Critical Content, the company that produced the special, issued an apology over the mistake.
"Critical Content apologizes to Commander Steve Katz of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, whose photo was mistakenly included in last night’s airing of 'Who Shot Biggie and Tupac?' He is not the Steven Katz of the Los Angeles Police Department mentioned in the program."
During the same special, former Death Row Records Suge Knight made headlines by claiming Tupac could still be alive.
