Crew members of the CBS action remake Hawaii five O are at the center for controversy this morning amidst reports that big -- respected veterans.
At the national memorial cemetery of the Pacific.
On Pearl Harbor day -- right now on the phone is -- Denver reporter Stephanie Tubbs who first highlighted the story morning it's happened.
Good morning guys into the might have happened on Friday that.
-- night so it did happen two days after Pearl Harbor day but not the last the veterans certainly felt this respected.
-- -- -- you were given a toured of these 23 World War II Pearl Harbor survivors average age 91 and you feel that they were completely disrespected by Hawaii five -- production.
People because they had rented a portion of the cemetery.
Right they had Steve they had the -- area where they were filming -- scene for the show.
We were about 200 yards away our ceremony went on it and -- national lamp summit -- and a couple of speeches.
I can't play every crew member disrespect to them but I can tell you.
That there was a lot of movement back and or.
And then there have been allegations that I'm making you know some of this stuff that I'm making this too big of a deal why no firsthand of these veterans -- this respected.
At one point we were -- And rushed through -- -- laying ceremony on some of the grave there was production member with a backpack and it earpiece.
Who basically walked through all of us as as we were doing this somber very somber ceremony.
And was trying to -- but that won't point -- that please be quiet were rolling.
And it was the ultimate disrespect it right now sepia then they're investigating but I can tell you that a lot of people feel that I did.
By the by the events of last Friday.
Esteban you call you also qualified to that the president was in the area on December 5 two have been nice if he could have stopped by also the interior secretary was supposed to be at the it's due December 7 ceremony he did not show up he was just a flat out no show.
And they told you go repeatedly first moved 45 yards away then 75 yards away than 300 yards away with these up pro harbor veterans was not enough.
Right and you know -- they have.
If if they think that -- stories made up guys or if they think they don't believe he's 24 World War II veteran 123 of -- Pearl Harbor survivors as you indicated.
The bottom line that you got a -- -- those pictures is this how during Pearl Harbor week.
The national cemetery of the Pacific should be treated.
Walking on -- -- the cameras and boom boom mikes I mean I did it.
Personally as an American I just I took offense that it but it faded when they started touching the veterans and rushing them along that's right took issue and they went.
-- I looked to see from the executive producer through -- -- -- that he was going to look at -- that -- -- to kind of accusing me of trying to take down a TV show.
Speaking of magic here is Denver a fifty -- dot com is blowing up with all of the pictures and -- -- -- -- it's if it's something that's not gonna go away and I think it could have guys with just one simple.
The clock speed to stop somewhere and it happening yet ha maybe with an apology is that -- saying I think these veterans deserve it they've they've served our country they change the world -- World War II.
And being hostile long and rushed -- longer and they're coming back to Hawaii for the final time I think it was total -- So let's look at the clock from CBS we were surprised to hear this report and are looking into the matter our veterans deserve the highest level of respect and reverence for their service particularly during a ceremony.
Honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and that's from CBS television studios does that do it for it.
You know it may do it for me does -- do it for a guy who is 96 it will never go there again what if what if one of these great -- that they wanted to go -- was quite under the seat of the actors would they have broken down production -- -- -- player wrote I don't think so.
And the last thing is you ask them we went over drugs it would be better if we just love somebody from the past to come over and talk to them.
They said no as a role on the bus they couldn't say to budget nine year old who serve this country down validly high.
-- -- that your final image for you guys as I'm leaving or getting on the body a caterers -- with a plate of salmon and Blackberry across the -- and across the cemetery to go beat duke presumably somebody on the group.
That show biz all right Stephanie Tubbs it is outrageous we think you're much for joining us from cable and radio out in Denver.
