‘Parasite’ Movie Studio Hits Back After Trump Criticism Of Oscar Win: ‘He Can’t Read’

The movie studio behind the South Korean film “Parasite” fired back on Thursday after President Trump criticized the foreign-language film for winning best picture at the 2020 Academy Awards in Hollywood.

“Understandable, he can’t read,” Neon tweeted from its official account with a link to Trump’s comments.

“Parasite” made history earlier this month when it became the first non-English film to win the top prize at the Oscars in the award show’s 92-year history.

The class warfare satire, directed by Bong Joon-ho, dominated the night with a total of four wins, including in the directing, international feature and original screenplay categories.

Trump, however, knocked the film during a campaign rally in Colorado.

“By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year?” Trump asked as his crowd of supporters booed before suggesting an American movie should have won.

“The winner is a movie from South Korea. What the hell was that all about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea, with trade,” the president continued. “And after all that, they give them best movie of the year?”

Trump also lashed out at Oscar winner Brad Pitt, who won best supporting actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.”

During his acceptance speech, Pitt said his allowed time to speak was “more than the Senate gave John Bolton,” the former White House national security adviser who offered to testify in the Senate impeachment trial if subpoenaed.

“And then you have Brad Pitt. I was never a big fan of his. He got up and said a little wise guy statement. Little wise guy. He’s a little wise guy,” the president said of the actor.

Trump was ultimately acquitted in the Senate impeachment trial after no witnesses were allowed to testify.
