As we said yesterday…he should have kept his mouth shut!
Check out the video (above) of Melancholia director Lars Von Trier calling himself a Nazi and saying that he sympathizes with Hitler…AND making Kirsten Dunst REALLY uncomfortable.
As a result of his comments, Lars has been expelled from the Cannes film festival.
Here's what the Cannes board of directors said about the incident on their website:
“[The Cannes board of directors] profoundly regrets that this forum has been used by Lars Von Trier to express comments that are unacceptable, intolerable, and contrary to the ideals of humanity and generosity that preside over the very existence of the festival.”
“The board of directors firmly condemns these comments and declares Lars Von Trier persona non grata at the Festival de Cannes, with effect immediately."
Better get going with those apologies, Lars. You've got till January to convince Sundance. Ha!
What do U think of Lars Von Trier's Nazi comments? Did he deserve to get expelled from Cannes?
