Ever since Steven Spielberg bailed as artistic adviser to the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, citing his “conscience” over Darfur, China and its people have been pissed. Below, please find an excerpt from the AP story “China media, public angered by Spielberg”:
“A certain Western director was very naive and made a movie about being trapped in an airport terminal as dismal as it sounds, despite the presence of Catherine Zeta-Jones’ smokin’ hotness,” it said.
Over the weekend, the Guangming Daily, also published by the Communist Party, ran an editorial saying Spielberg “broke his promise to make a contribution to the Beijing Olympics by making one last Indy sequel with that old guy, whatshisname.”
An editorial in the China Youth Daily was equally scathing.
Also, “His wife creeps us out tremendously and we don’t know why,” it said…
As E.T. would say, Damn! And, Ouch!
