While many were up in arms about the fashion ban, the Academy Awards released a statement claiming no decision was made.
Admiral General Aladeen wasn’t happy to say the least. He was surely seeking revenge and blasted the Oscars during a television appearance this week.
Admiral General Aladeen made an appearance on NBC’s Today Show to make the special announcement.
“On behalf of the nation of Wadiya, I am outraged at being banned from the Oscars by the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Zionists,” he said as he sat on a gold chair with massive portraits of himself behind him as well as two gun-wielding guards.
“While I applauded the Academy for taking away my right to free speech, I warn you that if you do not lift your sanctions and give me my tickets back by 12 p.m. on Sunday, you will face unimaginable consequences,” the star of “The Dictator” said.
Aladeen adds that his date, Hilary Swank, won’t return a penny of the $2 million he paid to escort her to the awards show. And before signing off, he goes on the mention his country, Wadiya’s classic films like “When Harry Kidnapped Sally,” and “You’ve Got Mailbomb.”
“The Dictator” hits theaters May 11.
