Film director Oliver Stone is facing another backlash after suggesting that Hitler was made an “easy scapegoat” by history.
Stone, who has previously been accused of promoting conspiracy theories and glorifying violence in his films, has made a new documentary series that he says will place historical figures including Hitler and Stalin “in context”.
“Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and it's been used cheaply. He's the product of a series of actions. It's cause and effect,” he said.
