Did Clint Eastwood Really Threaten to Kill Michael Moore? His Response Draws Applause

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As legendary Hollywood actor and director Clint Eastwood was being honored at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, he addressed the allegation made by far-left, anti-American director Michael Moore that Eastwood threatened to kill him. Not only did Eastwood address it, his response drew both laughter and applause from the audience.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]In January, Moore took to Facebook and accused Eastwood of threatening to kill him ten years ago if he showed up at his door with a camera. The Daily Mail recalls that post by Moore.

‘Ten years ago this past week, Clint Eastwood stood in front of the National Board of Review awards dinner and announced to me and to the crowd that he would “kill” me if I ever came to his house with my camera for an interview. 

‘”I’ll kill you,” he declared. The crowd laughed nervously.’

Moore went on: ‘As for me, having just experienced a half-dozen assaults in the previous year from crazies upset at ‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ and my anti-war Oscar speech, plus the attempt by a right wing extremist to blow up my house (he was caught in time and went to prison), I was a bit stunned to hear Eastwood, out of the blue, make such a violent statement.

Eastwood said of this allegation, ““Everybody’s saying I threatened to kill Michael Moore. It’s not true.”

Then, Clint delivered the real zinger. He added after a pause, “It isn’t a bad idea.”

At that time, the crowd broke out in laughter and applause.

Let’s see if Michael Moore takes to Facebook once again to challenge Eastwood.
