Anghus Houvouras with this week’s disappointments from the entertainment world…
Remember when George Lucas accused film audiences of being racist because they didn’t turn out to see the awful Red Tails? And you cringed at hearing him talk like the billionaire who created Star Wars had any real understanding of racism. Well, ol’ flannel clad George is at it again. This time it’s calling Disney ‘white slavers’. Lucas has apparently embraced his role as the Old Crazy Grandpa of pop culture and will be readily available to dish out uncomfortable conversations until they stop making Star Wars movies… which according to latest estimates is ‘never’. Thank God Disney doesn’t have their hands on any other of Lucas’ toys…
Uh oh. Somebody get Grandpa George his medication and an electric blanket before he starts hurling uncomfortable racial epithets.
