My colleague Armond White, who is the best known African-American film
critic in NY and maybe the USA, caused a scene over "12 Years a Slave".
God, I wish I could have been there.
The New York Film Critics Circle is reeling today after its annual gala
made headlines for a heckling incident between one of its members and
“12 Years a Slave” director Steve McQueen.
As first reported by Variety last night, CityArts editor Armond White
started to shout a string of nasty comments to McQueen as he was
accepting his prize on-stage. “You’re an embarrassing doorman and
garbage man,” White yelled. “F—you. Kiss my ass.”
The organization has set an emergency meeting for Monday, Jan. 13 at
Lincoln Center to discuss what to do about the situation.
