So then, Mark Schultz. They made a film about him recently, Foxcatcher. But there is a problem with the movie.
Apparently the movie is laced with homosexual undertones, deliberately suggesting that there’s something queer between Schultz, played by Channing Tatum, and his trainer, played by Steve Carrell. Apparently they just couldn’t make a simple movie about amateur wrestling without contributing to an agenda.
Well, Schultz ain’t happy. He took to his Facebook account to address director Bennett Miller.
“The personalities and relationships between the characters in the film are primarily fiction and somewhat insulting,” Schultz wrote. “Leaving the audience with a feeling that somehow there could have been a sexual relationship between duPont and I [sic] is a sickening and insulting lie. I told Bennett Miller to cut that scene out and he said it was to give the audience the feeling that duPont was encroaching on your privacy and personal space. I wasn’t explicit so I didn’t have a problem with it. Then after reading 3 or 4 reviews interpreting it sexually, and jeopardizing my legacy, they need to have a press conference to clear the air, or I will.”
Manly man Schultz also let him have it on Twitter:
I searched around on this and, sure enough, ‘progressives’ (that is to say, certain people in the west whose views are a minority among 7 billion, who think their views represent humanity) are now accusing Schultz of being a homosexual. Latent homosexual, said Hitflix, for one. Isn’t it funny that those people use the term ‘latent homosexual’ as an insult? Which in itself is homophobic.
So, they couldn’t make a movie about mat wrestling without ‘going there’. And anyone who has a problem with it, not least the man being portrayed, is a homosexual.
