During today’s segment of The View, co-host Rosie O’Donnell asked police to search John Grisham’s computer for child pornography after he defended curious men who might stumble upon inappropriate videos of children.

O’Donnell said she was “horrified” and questioned his motive behind this statement Grisham made to The Telegraph earlier this week:

“We have prisons now filled with guys my age — sixty-year-old white men in prison who’ve never harmed anybody, would never touch a child,” he said. “But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn.” 

Receiving multiple forms of backlash, Grisham retracted the statements and emerged with an online apology two days later via his personal website:

Anyone who harms a child for profit or pleasure, or who in any way participates in child pornography–online or otherwise–should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

My comments… were in no way intended to show sympathy for those convicted of sex crimes, especially the sexual molestation of children. I can think of nothing more despicable. I regret having made these comments, and apologize to all.

O’Donnell will not let Grisham’s commentary about pedophilia slip between the cracks, as she instigated an investigation by law enforcement.

“Well, John, I accept your apology but I don’t believe in your (expletive) bull crap thing that you said before,” she said in disgust. “Nobody accidentally stumbles onto child pornography. If I were the police, I’d look at John Grisham’s hard drive right now.”

Whoopi Goldberg announced a commercial break soon after O’Donnell offered her advice.
