    Default Monty Python's Terry Gilliam has turned into a whiny old bastard

    Monty Python's Terry Gilliam: 'I’m tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything'

    Former Monty Python star Terry Gilliam has hit out at the #MeToo Movement, labelling it “a witch hunt”, saying he is “tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world”.
    The writer and director made comments during an interview where he also said he “better not be a man”.
    Talking to the Independent, Gilliam said: “Yeah, I said #MeToo is a witch hunt - I really feel there were a lot of people, decent people, or mildly irritating people, who were getting hammered. That’s wrong. I don’t like mob mentality.

    “I’m talking about being a man accused of all the wrong in the world because I’m white-skinned. So I better not be a man. I better not be white. OK, since I don’t find men sexually attractive, I’ve got to be a lesbian. What else can I be? I like girls. These are just logical steps.”

    Speaking at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, in 2018 Gilliam said: “You know I no longer want to be a white male and be blamed for everything; I tell the world I am a BLGT, Black Lesbian in Transition and my name is Loretta.

    “Comedy is not assembled – a boy, a girl, white, black, a dog… I want to be trans-species. Transgender is not enough.”

    Terry Gilliam hates 'Black Panther' and calls the hype 'bulls***': 'I think the people who made it have never been to Africa'

    Gilliam is currently promoting latest movie The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, which is loosely based on the seventeenth century novel written by Miguel de Cervantes.
    The film, which stars Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce, is released in the UK this month.

    As a white male, I just try to think about how to keep history from repeating itself. It's not hard and it doesn't involve beating myself up over 500 years of slavery, or historical sexism. Guaranteed, this old fart is actually feeling nostalgic about the stuff that he thinks people are blaming him for.
