Michael Moore criticizing snipers in general, not ‘American Sniper’

<> at SVA Theater on March 23, 2013 in New York City.

Michael Moore is peeved at the press for turning his casual discussion of snipers and why they’re terrible into an attack on box office titan “American Sniper.” The nerve of some people, right? Moore initially tweeted:

And that tweet just happened to go out as most of Hollywood was remarking at how much money Clint Eastwood’s new movie was making. But that does not mean the two are related,according to Moore. “Deadline Hollywood and the Hollywood Reporter turned that into stories about how I don’t like Clint Eastwood’s new film, ‘American Sniper.’ I didn’t say a word about ‘American Sniper’ in my tweets.” Yeah, guys. Come on. Can’t a guy just casually talk about snipers completely apropos of nothing, free of any agenda? Yeesh .
