Bret Easton Ellis - Gender Wars – Bret Easton Ellis’ Sexist Twitter Rant About Kathryn Bigelow

Bret Easton Ellis has gotten himself into yet another spot of bother on Twitter. Not content with upsetting Matt Bomer recently, now Ellis has targeted his vitriol at the Oscar-winning movie director Kathryn Bigelow. It’s amazing how much hatred you can shake up in the space of 140 characters, now, isn’t it? Ellis started off by posting a message on his Twitter feed last night (December 5, 2012) about Bigelow’s latest movie Zero Dark Thirty, saying that it “might win critics awards but Silver Linings Playbook will win the Best Picture Oscar. This is how it always happens...”

Now – that tweet alone wouldn’t have ben so bad, surely; a nice even-handed approach to his Oscars predictions. Ellis being Ellis, though, couldn’t (or wouldn’t) leave things there and said “Kathryn Bigelow would be considered a mildly interesting filmmaker if she was a man but since she's a very hot woman she's really overrated…” and then made things worse by saying “Kathryn Bigelow: Strange Days, K-19 The Widowmaker, Blue Steel, The Hurt Locker. Are we talking about visionary filmmaking or just OK junk?” Unkind words, indeed from Bret, there, about the only female to ever have won an Oscar for Best Director.

This isn’t the first time that Ellis has caused a stink on Twitter, either. Not so long ago, he blasted rumours that Matt Bomer would be playing the lead in Fifty Shades of Grey, because he was gay. Er… that’s why they call it acting, Ellis… Geez. Let’s hope Bigelow gets the last laugh and lands an Oscar, eh?
