A month before the release of “Cobra” (see critical barbs at right), an announcement went out that Sylvester Stallone would be honored by the Boys Clubs of America for his “outstanding success as an entertainer and as a humanitarian.”
But there’s been a change in plans: “We will not be presenting an award to Sylvester Stallone (as announced),” said Mark Lutin, manager, public relations.
The group’s first “Uncommon Man Award” “was to have honored (Stallone) for his past work with us,” alluding to public-service spots that the Italian Stallion made for the organization several years ago.
The spokesman claimed that the dis-honoring is unrelated to “Cobra”: “Not to my knowledge,” Lutin said. “It’s just a scheduling conflict.”
He couldn’t elaborate.
