Twitter has uncovered some comments that Clint Eastwood made at the 1973 Academy Awards. He seemed to want to lighten the mood after a speech involving Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather. Marlon won the Best Actor award for his work in The Godfather.

At the time, Marlon was an activist for the American Indian Movement. He became friends with Sacheen and asked her to accept the award on his behalf. In her speech, she shared more about the issues at Wounded Knee and asked Hollywood to stop dehumanizing American Indians in movies.

Fans are calling Clint Eastwood out for comments he made in 1973

Clint was presenting the award and said, “I don’t know if I should present this award, on behalf of all the cowboys shot in all the John Ford Westerns over the years.” Some Twitter users say the comment isn’t a big deal while others believe it was very inappropriate.

Cancelled by whom? Hollywood? Elites? Haven’t we ALL been cancelled by them already? Clint Eastwood will forever be the “people’s choice” in Hollywood’s, because he is one of the only actors who hasn’t forgotten that “the people” put him there.

Lol, the people raising a stink weren't even born yet... I think Clint will be fine when he rides off into the sunset. He can't stand liberals anyway

What about all the rappers? They use racist and misogynistic language. Even promote killing cops! When will they be canceled?
