Trump Mocks 'Parasite' for Oscar Wins, Neon Studios Issues Epic Response

Donald Trump is lashing out at the movie Parasite for winning the top awards at the Oscars.

During the president’s rally in Colorado, he addressed the awards show and criticized the Academy for awarding a movie from South Korea.

“How bad were the Academy Awards this year? Did you see it?” he asked the crowd. “The winner is… a movie from South Korea! What the hell was that all about? We got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give them best movie of the year? Was it good? I don’t know. Let’s get Gone With the Wind. Can we get Gone With the Wind back, please?”

“So many great movies… the winner is from South Korea!” Trump continued. “I thought it was best foreign film, right? Best foreign movie. Did this ever happen before?”

Parasite actually made history as the first foreign-language film to ever win Best Picture at the Oscars.

Neon Studios, the studio that distributed Parasite in the U.S., issued an epic response to the comments.

“Understandable, he can’t read,” the studio tweeted.
