Twitter fight, over: LL Cool J won't appear on Sarah Palin's Fox News interview show. The network says it cut his recorded segment from tomorrow night's Real American Stories after he complained the show was simply recycling an interview from 2008. Earlier, the rapper blasted Fox on his Twitter page, claiming the network was "misrepresenting" him.

Real American Stories features uplifting tales about overcoming adversity, and we believe Mr. Smith’s interview fit that criteria," said Fox in a statement. "However, as it appears that Mr. Smith does not want to be associated with a program that could serve as an inspiration to others, we are cutting his interview from the special and wish him the best with his fledgling acting career."
