Oliver Stone says ‘cancel culture’ would end his career today
Director Oliver Stone has blasted “cancel f–king culture” saying he would be “vilified” if his films came out today.
The filmmaker behind “Platoon,” “Natural Born Killers” and “Wall Street,” said he’d be cast out of Hollywood if he released those films in today’s climate.
Stone said: “I can tell you that if I made any of my films, I don’t think I’d last. I’d be vilified. I’d be attacked. Shamed. Whatever you want to call that … culture, cancel f–king culture.”
He added during an appearance on SiriusXM’s “Jim Norton & Sam Roberts,” “I mean, it’s just impossible. I would have had to step on so many sensitivities. You have to have some freedom to make a movie, unfortunately.
“You have to be rude. You can be bad. And you’re going to have do to these things like step on toes. Holy cow. Do you think I could have made any one of those films?”
