Alabama’s cadaverous looking governor, Robert Bentley, is in a bit of a pickle lately, thanks to some unwholesome remarks he made, released by a fired law enforcement cabinet officer in a tape yesterday, which was actually just the tip of the iceberg. Now, when he was running for re-election, there’d been some…speculation about why the dignified MRS. Bentley had suddenly moved out of the Governor’s home prior to the election and her lips were TIGHTLY sealed.
Thankfully, AL.com has just posted a pretty hilarious “apology” attempt…
Canadian actor says The Revenant ‘stupid’ for portraying French-Canadians as murderous rapists
For portraying French-speaking voyageurs as duplicitous, murdering rapists, a prominent Canadian actor is accusing the hit film The Revenant of being anti-French-Canadian.
“It’s the French Canadians who rape, who lynch, who keep sex slaves,” actor Roy Dupuis was quoted as saying in the Quebec version of Huffington Post.
“They have the worst roles!”
Born in Ontario to Francophone parents, Dupuis is famous for portrayed hockey player Maurice Richard in a 2013 biopic, and for his roles as Canadian general Roméo Dallaire in the Rwandan Genocide drama Shake Hands with the Devil.
Dupuis said he was originally offered the role of Toussaint, the leader of a French-Canadian fur trading expedition, but turned it down after reading the script and seeing the Canadiens depicted as “horrible barbarians.”
A spokesman for 20th Century Fox admitted the error and said “Yes, it was a horrible mistake, we never intended to portray French-Canadians as murderous rapists; in fact we meant to portray them as raping murderers.”
