2018 continues to be a reality television-fueled hellscape, as Tom Arnold and Apprentice producer Mark Burnett got into a physical fight at a pre-Emmys party in Los Angeles. At approximately 9:30 p.m., as the two men made their way into the event, a shoving match reportedly took place, in which Tom Arnold claims he was choked by Mr. Burnett.

OK... so here's the deal... this fight/incident/alleged attack/whatever the hell is going on didn't come out of nowhere.

During the press tour for his Viceland show, Arnold has repeatedly said that Burnett knows the tapes exist.

Arnold took to Twitter to accuse the former "Apprentice" producer of choking him.

As for this fight itself?

The 59-year-old actor was reportedly involved in an altercation with Mark Burnett - who he has repeatedly accused of concealing the 'Trump Tapes'.

But moving forward... tempers are high!

Arnold, who said he was waiting for the LAPD, fired back, "Bullshit". The premise of the show involves Arnold searching for damaging tapes of President Donald Trump - including rumored tapes of Trump making racist comments on the set of The Apprentice. Arnold believes the tapes reveal Trump using the n-word and other epithets.

Burnett has yet to publicly respond to Arnold's accusation. "I'd like him to stand up and say, 'actually, we had to cut out all the lies and sexual harassment and the insanity and the incompetence, we had to cut all that out.' That's the tape I want".

Arnold's comments contributed to the view of the Burnett camp that the confrontation at Evening Before was planned by Arnold. "[Burnett] called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a bad and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa", Trump tweeted last month.

Since the incident, there have been a few updates from other Hollywood celebrities in attendance who either witnessed the altercation to some extent, or saw Arnold after. People are at the border.
