“Iron Man” star Robert Downey Jr. has been accused of making a racist comment about Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
Downey, who is promoting his latest movie, “Age of Ultron,” was asked what he thought of Inarritu’s claim that superhero movies were “cultural genocide.”
Downey told The Guardian: “Look I respect the heck out of him. I think for a man whose native tongue is Spanish to be able to put together a phrase like ‘cultural genocide’ just speaks to how bright he is.” Wow.
Robert Downey Jr. was blasted on Twitter — called racist and ignorant.
