Donald Trump mocks Parasite’s best picture win


Donald Trump has mocked South Korean film Parasite and its best picture victory at the Oscars. Director Bong Joon-Ho’s searing commentary on class struggle made history at the Academy Awards this month when it became the first foreign language film to win the top prize. On a memorable night, Parasite also earned Bong best director and won both best original screenplay and best international feature. However, Mr Trump was not impressed and bemoaned the film’s success during a rally in Colorado. “How bad were the Academy Awards this year?” the president asked, prompting boos from the crowd.
