Christian Bale Pissed Off Dick Cheney’s Daughter After Thanking Satan For Inspiring His Performance In “Vice”
If you stayed up last night rotting your brain with rich people awkwardly thanking each other for being fabulous while getting drunk off Moet (AKA the Golden Globes), then you saw Christian Bale win the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for his role as Dick Cheney in Vice. During his semi-awkward and messy (weren’t they all) acceptance speech, he thanked a plethora of people, but he did make one notable call out who (despite his involvement behind the scenes) is not normally thanked at American award shows: Satan.
Christian Bale thanked Satan for inspiring his performance of the one-time Vice President, and it pissed off some conservatives including Dick Cheney’s eldest daughter, Liz Cheney. Liz took to Twitter to drag up receipts from Christian’s checkered past, tweeting the following:
Satan probably inspired him to do this, too. Christian Bale arrested for 'assault on mother and sister'| The Independent. https://t.co/kesnNno9Zv

Shade! But really she should have posted the clip of him losing his whole entire mind while on the set of that Terminator: Salvation movie he did. That was way more visceral and he didn’t even get charged with anything for this–the Crown Prosecution said they wouldn’t be charging Christian for the alleged assault, citing insufficient evidence.
You know who should be pissed about this? Satan. Who wants to be compared to a Republican vice-President? Hasn’t Baphomet been through enough this year? Well actually, the Church of Satan isn’t that pissed and sent out a tweet of their own because… of course they did:
To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. As Mr. Bale's own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan! https://t.co/ILuK8TFZXi

“Hail Christian! Hail Satan!” is probably not what Christian Bale thought he was going to be inspiring when he made that joke, huh?
People were also gobsmacked to remember that Christian Bale, who is not American, has an accent:

So……Christian Bale has been British his entire life and has spoken numerous times with his British accent, including in his infamous Terminator Salvation tirade, but now after playing Dick Cheney in a movie people are surprised by it. pic.twitter.com/6Rd6YgQEuf

Christian Bale does so many American roles that when he speaks in his natural accent it just sounds like he’s making fun of British people

After revealing his true speaking voice once more, and getting the Church of Satan’s blessing, hopefully no one now asks Christian Bale to portray Satan with a British accent in a movie. He is method as fuck and is willing to ruin himself if it works for a movie. I don’t want to see him sell his soul just so he can fully understand his role… And don’t the Kardashians provide Satan with enough souls to feast on, anyway?
