Trump Fires Back At Tantrum-Throwing Spike Lee For Oscars Slight
The Oscars once again became political as Director Spike Lee took the stage to accept his award for best-adapted screenplay for his film BlacKkKlansman.
Lee took some time to thank everyone for giving him this win and working with him on the movie. He then took aim at the president as he felt the need to share his opinion.
“Before the world tonight, I give praise to our ancestors who have built this country into what it is today along with the genocide of its native people. We all connect with our ancestors. We will have love and wisdom regained, we will regain our humanity. It will be a powerful moment. The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize. Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing! You know I had to get that in there.”
But Lee’s slight did not go unnoticed as Trump was quick to respond to Lee’s slight on Twitter.
“Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!”
Trump was referring to how Spike Lee was relying heavily on his notes and fumbled a bit during its presentation.
Lee was very emotional during the Oscars as he started his acceptance speech with:
“Do not turn that motherf—ing clock on,” he yelled as he started his speech.”
He later would throw a fit that the “Green Book” won the best picture.
“I’m snakebit. Every time someone’s driving somebody, I lose,” he later told reporters backstage, in reference to his breakout film, “Do the Right Thing,” losing the Oscar for Best Screenplay to “Driving Miss Daisy” in 1990. “I thought I was courtside at the Garden and the refs made a bad call.”
