Not everyone was a fan of “Green Book” — something one of the film’s producers had a hard time accepting.
After the film won Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday night, NBC culture critic Jenni Miller revealed that producer Charles Wessler had sent her an email last month, expressing his anger over her negative writing about the film.
Wessler was responding to Miller’s post on the NBC News website headlined, “‘Green Book’ is a movie about racism, made by white people for white people. See the problem?”
In his email, Wessler said that “African Americans for the most part LOVE this film.”
He added, “I will not go on and on about how wrong you are but you have a big A** responsibility to write the TRUTH when you write for NBC. You on the other hand are writing like a FOX reporter.”
Seeing Miller’s tweet, Vanity Fair critic K. Austin Collins revealed that he, too, received an angry email from Wessler over his article, “The Truth About ‘Green Book'”.
Collins did not share the text of the email he was sent but described it as “finger-waggy.”
