Was Robert Pattinson Being Racist?
The internet is buzzing about Twilight star Robert Pattinson‘s recent interview with Details magazine.
The interviewer, Jenny Lumet, introduced the word “Negro” during it, and what Robert said afterward has caused a stir – but rightfully so?
You be the judge:
Interviewer: Rob, did you know that every time you say actor or acting you lower your voice to a whisper?
Rob: (He’s genuinely startled.) “I do?”
Interviewer: Yes, so quietly it’s like you’re saying Negro.
Rob: (He laughs, lightens up.) “What if we were ‘acting’ like ‘Negroes’? Then we’d be f**ked—we couldn’t hear anything. . . .”
Did you think Robert meant this in a racist way?
On another note, check out what he had to say about the “vaginas” surrounding him during the photo shoot:
“I really hate vaginas…I’m allergic to vagina. But I can’t say I had no idea, because it was a 12-hour shoot, so you kind of get the picture that these women are going to stay naked after, like, five or six hours. But I wasn’t exactly prepared. I had no idea what to say to these girls. Thank God I was hungover.”
