Oscars 2020: Brad Pitt gets trolled for 'wasting his speech' jabbing at Trump impeachment trial
He slammed the Senate's impeachment trial and even urged Quentin Tarantino to make a movie about it
Twitter trolls seem to be slamming Brad Pitt for his political stance on impeachment during his acceptance speech at the Oscars on February 9.
Taking a jab at the Senate's impeachment trial that did not allow witnesses, Pitt said, "They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week."
The stance came after Pitt won best supporting actor for his role in the Quentin Tarantino-directed 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'. This was his first-ever Oscar for acting. His first win was for '12 Years A Slave' which won the Best Picture.
He further added, "I'm thinking maybe Quentin (Tarantino) does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing," he added. He went on to praise Tarantino for being "original", and said, "The film industry would be a much drier place without you."
One troll said, "I was dying to know what Brad Pitt thought about the impeachment trial!! Haha," while another said, "Hey Brad, it wouldn't have mattered if Bolton did testify. Keep to the acting and leave the lawmaking to the lawmakers."
A third one added, slamming the actor, "It’s called truth and Justice Mr Pitt! Now go on and live in your pretend world. So bitter #BradPitt even telling Tarantino to make a movie so he can rewrite the reality of what your feeling about it right now. #Oscars2020." Another said, "What of waste to use those seconds on #government instead of on true meaning in life."
"Oh Brad Pitt my favorite political expert. Seriously though, dude finally gets an Oscar after a million years in Hollywood and he wastes his speech on this?!" another said.
Pitt won the award beating legends such as Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino. He played the role of Clint Booth in the film.
