Naomi Campbell blew up at ABC News after an interviewer asked her whether Liberian president/warlord Charles Taylor gave her a blood diamond. In Naomi's defense, we're not really sure what you're supposed to do when one of the scariest people on the planet gives you a morally suspect present. But we do know that it's always a bad idea to backhand a camera while a major news organization is filming. To see an edited version of the clip consisting solely of Naomi Campbell's Q&A and subsequent freak-out, head to Gawker. [ABCNews]
