“Trump attacked the movie ‘Parasite’ during one of his recent rallies.
The movie studio behind the South Korean film “Parasite” hit back on Thursday after President Trump criticized the foreign-language film for winning best picture at the 2020 Academy Awards.
“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 dark comedy 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.
