Joel & Ethan Coen Are Great Filmmakers But Shitty People

We all know the Coen Brothers make amazing movies, but we didn’t know that they have shitty opinions. Or more like, Joel has shitty opinions and Ethan just kind of smiles and nods.

In a recent Daily Beast interview when asked why their films have almost zero diversity, Joel Coen had this to say.

“Why would there be? I don’t understand the question. No—I understand that you’re asking the question, I don’t understand where the question comes from. Not why people want more diversity—why they would single out a particular movie and say, ‘Why aren’t there black or Chinese or Martians in this movie? What’s going on?’ That’s the question I don’t understand. The person who asks that question has to come in the room and explain it to me.”

Wow, because black and Chinese people are totally the same as aliens. Everyone who’re not white is an alien, according to Joel Coen. Marvelous. According to him these alien creatures are also irrelevant to how stories are told. Check this out.

“You don’t sit down and write a story and say, ‘I’m going to write a story that involves four black people, three Jews, and a dog,’—right?

Wow.

If I want to make a film about my sheep fucking adventures growing up, there was no black people….there were no black sheep. Just a lot of fucking whiite sheep and a… Read more »

Makes you wonder if a decade from now lighter skinned people will be able to write stories that reflect their lives and heritage . Sounds like casting via race consensus may be the only way to keep these race-baiting microaggresion junkies happy.

The Coen brothers have used aliens and dogs to talk about why they don’t need to consider black people in their roles. Makes you wonder.
