The American film distributor behind the Oscar-winning Parasite has responded after Donald Trump publicly mocked the South Korean film. 
Film Company Has Perfect Response After Donald Trump Mocks Parasite’s Oscars Success
Director Bong Joon-Ho’s searing commentary on class struggle made history at the Academy Awards this month when it became the first foreign language film to win Best Picture.
On a memorable night, Parasite also earned Bong the Best Director Oscar and won both Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature.However, during a rally in Colorado the US president made his feelings clear about the film’s success.
“How bad were the Academy Awards this year?” the president asked, prompting boos from the crowd.
“The winner is – a movie from South Korea! What the hell was that all about?
“We got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give him best movie of the year? Was it good? I don’t know. Let’s get Gone With The Wind. Can we get Gone With the Wind back, please?
“Sunset Boulevard? So many great movies.”
Mr Trump added: “Did this ever happen before?”
Following Trump’s comments, Neon, the North American distributor of Parasite, issued a short - but sweet - response.
“Understandable, he can’t read,” the company’s official Twitter account said.Understandable, he can't read.#Parasite#BestPicture#Bong2020https://t.co/lNqGJkUrDP— NEON (@neonrated) February 21, 2020The president also aimed a barb at Brad Pitt, who mentioned Mr Trump’s impeachment trial during his Oscars acceptance speech.
“And then you have Brad Pitt,” Mr Trump said. “I was never a big fan of his. He got up, said a little wise guy thing. He’s a little wise guy.”
Parasite is one of the most acclaimed films of recent years - and has been a huge commercial success.
Bong’s satirical dark comedy veers wildly between different genres as it tells the story of an unscrupulous poor family’s often hilarious attempts to embed themselves inside the home of a rich family.
It moves from comedy to horror before building up to a gruesome conclusion.
Parasite was a popular choice for best picture at the Oscars, winning ahead of Sam Mendes’s well-fancied war epic 1917.
Bong addressed the issue of Western audiences being reluctant to watch foreign language films during his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes.
“Once you overcome the one-inch-tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films,” he said after winning the best foreign film award.READ MORE: Parasite Didn’t Deserve To Win The Best Picture Oscar According To Joan Collins Why Parasite Winning Best Picture Is A Huge Leap Forward For The Oscars Donald Trump Ridicules Parasite In Jaw-Dropping Anti-South Korean Rant
