Sexist Quote of the Day by Bret Easton Ellis

Sexist Quote of the Day by Bret Easton Ellis

In a ploy to make himself relevant again after being turned down to write the screeplay for 50 Shades of Grey, Bret Easton Ellis took to twitter and slammed director Kathryn Bigelow.

Here’s the tweet:

Kathryn Bigelow would be considered a mildly interesting filmmaker if she was a man but since she’s a very hot woman she’s really overrated.

This of course is from a mildly interesting and sexist writer.  But more, it goes to show that it is ok to talk about a woman’s appearance in relation to her work.  Kathryn Bigelow has earned the right to be taken seriously based on her body of work and also, maybe that Oscar she won a couple of years ago.

While Easton Ellis might be the one with twitter diarrhea, I am betting that others have the same thoughts.

How about we all give Bret Easton Ellis a piece of our mind on twitter.  His address is @breteastonellis
