Sixty-one-year-old Spike Lee said that following the violence in Charlottesville, the USA president had the opportunity to denounce the Ku Klux Klan and the alt-right.
The Cannes Film Festival audience did the right thing at the premiere of Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman" Monday, showering the director with a 10-minute ovation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the final moments of the film, the drama segues into real-life video from Charlottesville, culminating in the footage of white supremacist James Fields ploughing a vehicle into protesters, killing activist Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of others. He also noted that he'd received permission from Heyer's mother, Susan Bro, before inserting imagery of Fields "murderous act". "Why are you acting like you ain't got skin in the game?"
Lee also said Trump - whom he refused to call by name - had "a chance to say we are about love and not hate", and sharply criticized him for not denouncing the KKK. The president should have said, Lee insisted, "that we're better than that". "The United States of America was built on the genocide of native people and slavery", he said.

Lee added that the world had to wake up to "right-wing bullshit". "We've gone for the okey-dokey, walking around in a daze and stuff is happening and it's topsy-turvy and fake has been trumpeted as the truth", Lee said. It's everybody. We all live on this planet, and this guy in the White House has the nuclear code.
At a press conference after the screening of the film, Lee spoke about the decision in the context of President Donald Trump's failure to denounce the white nationalists involved in the conflict. I go to bed thinking about it.
