Damien Chazelle Joins Twitter to Slam Trump: 'Impeach This Loathsome Misogynist Racist'

Damien Chazelle has finally joined Twitter (@DSChazelle) to voice his opinion about President Donald Trump and the current political climate.

The 32-year-old La La Land director slammed the president and called for his impeachment on Wednesday (August 16).

“Decided to join Twitter because I feel a responsibility to add my voice to the chorus,” he wrote in a series of 10 tweets. “The Trump administration is openly endorsing Nazism and white supremacy. It’s that simple. We’re living a historic moment. Things don’t often come this clear-cut. Anyone in a position of power who stays silent is complicit.”

“I hold out hope. That the GOP will come to its senses and call for impeachment,” he continued. “That voters lured by Trump‘s economic promises will finally wake up. And that we as a country will learn from this. That this moment will do away once and for all with ‘politics don’t affect me’, ‘I don’t feel like voting’, etc. That the epic moral failure we’re witnessing now will inspire a new activism.”

He added, “Might be naive. But in the meantime, I’m gonna try to do whatever I can. I gotta believe every little bit helps. Spread the word. Donate to @BLMNational , to @ACLU , to the @NAACP, to @PPact , to @swingleft. And call on the GOP as passionately as possible: impeach this loathsome misogynist racist.”

Damien went on to tweet more thoughts about the topic. Read the rest of them below.

'La La Land' in Concert Is Heading to Los Angeles!

Fans of La La Land who live in Los Angeles are in for a special treat as a “live-to-film” concert production is heading to the Hollywood Bowl!

Composer Justin Hurwitz, who won two Oscars for his work on the movie, will conduct a 100-piece symphony orchestra, choir, and Jazz ensemble while the film is played on a big screen.

“For me, one of the most thrilling and fulfilling parts of making La La Land was scoring the film to a live orchestra: a hundred phenomenal local musicians playing in real-time to the Technicolor images, bringing Justin‘s compositions to vivid life,” Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited to share that experience with audiences this summer, let alone in a setting as epic and as quintessentially ‘LA’ as the Hollywood Bowl.”

The concert production will take place on May 26 and May 27. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 10!

Here’s what they shared about the now-infamous La La Land/Moonlight Best Picture mix-up:

Barry, on the major fail: “It’s messy, but it’s kind of gorgeous…You have these two groups of people who came together for a second. There’s a picture with me hugging Jordan (Horowitz, a producer of “La La Land”) and Adele (Romanski, producer of ‘Moonlight’) has her arm on his shoulder. That’s what the moment was.”

Damien, on the mess up: “Everything looked so energized, I, at first thought there was some kind of prank going on.”
