’Parasite’ studio fires back after Trump criticism

A day after President Trump criticized the South Korean film ’Parasite’ for winning best picture at the 2020 Academy Awards, the movie studio behind the film hit back. ’Understandable, he can’t read’, the studio tweeted from its official account. ’We’ve got enough problems with South Korea, with trade. And after all that, they give them best movie of the year?’, Trump lamented at his rally.

parasite is no Schindler's list, maybe it was a weak year for other films and all. don't watch Hollywood movies anymore so I can't tell but I work in PR and no matter what someone says of you, you can't retaliate, shows lack of class. I would have invited the POTUS to watch the movie or acknowledged that it was a welcome shock to win the award as well, etc

The movie was good. What does that have to do with politics? The movie deserves the recognition it got, and I think it’s a good thing to expose people to other culture’s movies not because of political motivations but simply because they can be really good. Why miss out on great stories because of language barriers? Besides, this director has been popular in the states for quite some time now, mainly for his English movies. I think it’s nice he got such an award because he’s a talented director.
