[Ed. – Clarification. The criticism came mostly from conservatives.]
Actor Brad Pitt made a political statement at the Oscars on Sunday about President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial and was subsequently mocked online by critics.
Pitt, who won Best Supporting Actor for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” said during his acceptance speech, “They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.”
Referencing the director of the movie, Quentin Tarantino, Pitt continued, “I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it and in the end the adults do the right thing.”
Following his acceptance speech, Pitt was confronted about it by a reporter who said, “Some unkind souls have suggested that you had a writer throughout the speeches this award season, say it ain’t so.”
