'Bumfights' creator no match for Dr. Phil

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- The Web site TMZ.com wants to know if Los Angeles-based Dr. Phil was so disgusted by the creator of the "Bumfights" DVD series, why did he show clips?

TMZ reported Saturday that during the taping of a segment with Ty Beeson, Dr. Phil unceremoniously asked his guest to leave the set after viewing the footage of homeless types fighting for money.

"That's despicable. I don't want to talk to you. You can go. You can go," Dr. Phil said to Beeson, who responded in kind: "Every time you bring a guest on this show, you exploit them and spread whatever problems they have to the whole world. You think that's helping them?"

Security then hustled Beeson offstage.

Dr. Phil then turned to the audience and said he was sorry. "That is absolutely despicable, and I refuse to publicize that."

The episode, TMZ said, will air nationally on Tuesday, clips and all.

TMZ asked, "Our question: If Dr. Phil was really against publicizing the material, why didn't he edit it out of the show?"
