George Clooney isn't pleased.

You can tell by that one hair that's out of place.

Clooney went after Britain's Daily Mail in an editorial that ran Wednesday in USA Today. He accuses the paper of publishing a "completely fabricated" story that said his future mother-in-law opposes his upcoming marriage to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin.

Of course. Because mothers all over the world don't want their daughters to marry George Clooney. I'm already married -- to a woman -- and my mother wants me to marry George Clooney.

The Mail Online story, posted on Monday, said Alamuddin's mother told family in Beirut she's unhappy about the wedding for religious reasons and that her daughter could do better by marrying within the family's Druze religion.

Of course she could.

"First of all, none of the story is factually true," Clooney wrote. "Amal's mother is not Druze. She has not been to Beirut since Amal and I have been dating and she is in no way against the marriage -- but none of that is the issue."

Clooney really didn't like the part of the story that said because his won't be a Druze wedding, Alamuddin could be cast out of the community. Women have been murdered for not abiding by the Druze religious rules, the Mail Online's story added.

Uh-oh.

"The irresponsibility in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous," the 53-year-old Oscar winner wrote.

Clooney, whose father was a journalist, is usually pretty tolerant of the media. He added, "We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal."

The Mail Online tucked its tail between its legs and issued an apology to Clooney, Alamuddin, and her mother and has reportedly launched an investigation.

"We have removed the article from our website and will be contacting Mr. Clooney's representatives to discuss giving him the opportunity to set the record straight," the statement said, adding the story came from a trusted freelance journalist and was based on her contacts in the Lebanese community in Britain and Beirut.

The story wasn't published in the print version of the Daily Mail.
