Hollywood: Spike Lee Ready To Set It On Clint Eastwood

After Eastwood told director Spike Lee to “shut his face” and stop criticizing him about not including African-Americans in his 2006 Iwo Jima movies, “Flags of Our Fathers” and “Letters From Iwo Jima,” Lee’s lashing out. “First of all, the man is not my father and we’re not on a plantation either,” Lee tells ABC News. “He’s a great director. He makes his films, I make my films. The thing about it though, I didn’t personally attack him. And a comment like ‘a guy like that should shut his face’ — come on Clint, come on. He sounds like an angry old man right there.” Lee’s proposal for Eastwood: “If he wishes, I could assemble African-American men who fought at Iwo Jima and I’d like him to tell these guys that what they did was insignificant and they did not exist,” he said. “I’m not making this up. I know history. I’m a student of history. And I know the history of Hollywood and its omission of the one million African-American men and women who contributed to World War II.”
