Because he liedClint Eastwood was attacked because he didnt include black people in his Iwo Jima movies.
He responded by saying there were no black soldiers on Iwo Jima. That made him a racist. Apparently.
It also made those complaining about the lack of diversity idiots.
If you are wrong on something are you always a liar?

No black soldiers took part in combat on Iwo Jima. None were in the unit raising the flag. Just as Eastwood said. Maybe he could make a 3rd movie focussing on the non-combat roles of black soldiers.
My guess is no-one would see it. But it would probably win a fu** load of Academy Awards.
Except the links says they were in the background. Which makes sense given they werent the focus of his film.No black soldiers appeared in the landings, despite actually being involved.
I sort of get it when exploitation is involved. But the examples I see just make you shake your head. Not as much as a 'social influencer' does. How can that be a thing?Especially for a so called "multicultural" society. At least that is what they have been pushing on Australians for years.
Not sure you could devalue the Oscars more. You have to lobby to get votes FFSThere's a massive chance this could backfire big time on 'The Academy'.
Do people make movies to make money, or win Academy Awards?
I'd suggest the former as opposed to the latter.
All we need is one absolute standout that is generally acclaimed as the best movie of the year, but isn't even nominated for Best Picture because it doesn't fulfil the new criteria.
The film cleans up on a dozen other Awards, and whatever wins the Best Picture has clearly done a Bradbury.
Immediate devaluation of the Best Picture Award, and therefore devaluation of the Academy Awards in general.
Which streaming services? Netflix? They're being overly cautious most likely. Probably will bring it back later.I'm not sure if this sort of thing has been addressed in this thread and I can't be bothered reading through a thousand posts, but one thing that has annoyed me during the recent period of things getting taken off the air etc is when there is no context applied.
So there is a scene in season 2 of Peep Show where Jeremy and Nancy are breaking all these sexual taboos. Jeremy just wants to get laid so he's happy to do whatever he's told. His conscience gets pricked when Nancy paints him in brown-face and wants him to pretend that she is his mum. He recoils and says 'isn't this a bit wrong?' and she says 'you can't imagine a black man having sex with your mum? That's pretty racist Jeremy.' The inference throughout the scene for anyone with a brain is that Jeremy looking the way he does is clearly racist.
Streaming services began removing the scene. I don't really see why. The show itself is observing the racist element of blackface
As far as I can tell Stan hasn’t changed it yet though I recall reading that they intended toWhich streaming services? Netflix? They're being overly cautious most likely. Probably will bring it back later.
It's still on the UK service if you need to watch it:
