Director Oliver Stone was booed at the British Comedy Awards last night after telling the celebrity audience how awesome he felt to be in England. He said:
It’s great to be back in England. I feel like Jack The Ripper days are back. Nothing ever changes here.”
In defense of the crowd, this probably wouldn’t have been funny even if the bodies of five prostitutes hadn’t been found in the woods of the port town of Ipswich in the last eleven days. Nice job working in one of the darkest moments of British history at a comedy show there Oliver. You would’ve got a better laugh if you went to Japan and flew a B-52 over the audience or cracked a whip on stage at a NAACP meeting.
