Earlier, I posted about how Clint Eastwood said Spike Lee needs too “shut his face” after Spike said he was pissed off that Clint didn’t feature any African American soldiers in a couple of his war movies.
Spike has responded to ABC News! Spike said, “First of all, the man is not my father and we’re not on a plantation either.”
Escandalo! You better duck. Clint is going to throw his caramel squares at Spike.
He went on to say, “He’s a great director. He makes his films, I make my films. The thing about it though, I didn’t personally attack him. And a comment like ‘a guy like that should shut his face’ — come on Clint, come on. He sounds like an angry old man right there.”
Angry old man? Yup, that sounds like Clint. What’s Spike’s point?
“If he wishes, I could assemble African-American men who fought at Iwo Jima and I’d like him to tell these guys that what they did was insignificant and they did not exist. I’m not making this up. I know history. I’m a student of history. And I know the history of Hollywood and its omission of the one million African-American men and women who contributed to WWII. Not everything was John Wayne, baby.” YES! That’s the way I like, Spike. Nice and dirty.
Spike finished with, “In his vision of Iwo Jima, Negro soldiers did not exist. Simple as that. I have a different version.”
Seriously, these two parrots need to stop squawking and start brawling! If they don’t want to take part in an oiled up cage fight, they can do a good old-fashioned dance off! I bet you Clint can make that ass clap like we were at the opera.
