Alejandro Inarritu he learned it in a very bad way, since he lived a moment as unpleasant as a Mexican can live.
This experience began in 2014, the film director, who also as Martin Scorsese criticized superhero movies and noted that Marvel movies are a “cultural genocide” for the film industry.
That is why and as expected, Robert Downey Jr He responded quickly and directly to these remarks, neither more nor less than the popular Iron Man.
When the movie Avenger: Age of Ultron was being promoted, the actor said a racist comment that left many surprised and with their mouths open.
“I respect him (Iñárritu) a lot and I think that for a man whose mother tongue is Spanish, that he can form a phrase like ‘cultural genocide’ indicates how brilliant he is,” he commented.
Although several years have passed since then, it seems Alexander still does not forget that comment, because he mentioned it in his most recent film that made its world debut in Venice 2022.
“You may or may not like it, that is not the discussion. But for me, there is a kind of racist background in which, since I am Mexican, I am pretentious”, he pointed out in an interview with the LA Times.
