Three-time Oscar winner Oliver Stone admits that in today’s fascist cancel culture, “[I]f I made any of my films, I don’t think I’d last. I’d be vilified.”
During an appearance on SiriusXM’s Jim Norton & Sam Roberts to promote his autobiography (which should arrive in the mail Monday), Stone added: “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?” Stone asked. “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 fucking culture.”
