Spike Lee started it. Sounds juvenile, but then so does the word battle between Lee and fellow director/actor Clint Eastwood.
First, Lee, who is promoting his upcoming war flick, "Miracle at St. Anna,"chastized Eastwood for the lack of melanin in his
war films "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima."
So then Eastwood said: "A guy like him should shut his face." Hahahaha.
And then Lee said: "First of all, the man is not my father and we're not on a plantation either. He's a great director ... I didn't personally attack him. And a comment like "A guy like that should shut his face," come on Clint, come on. He sounds like an angry old man right there."
There's no telling what tough-guy Eastwood will come back with now. He'll probably stick out his tongue and give Lee the finger.
