Green Book writer sorry for 9/11 tweet
Green Book co- writer Nick Vallelonga has apologized for a 2015 tweet about Muslims and 9/11 that resurfaced a few days after the film won a top Golden Globe Award.
In the tweet, he said then presidential candidate Donald Trump was “100% correct” that local TV news showed Muslims in Jersey City cheering when the twin towers came down on 9/11, and he had seen it. There is no evidence such celebrations occurred.
“I spent my life trying to bring this story of overcoming differences and finding common ground to the screen, and I am incredibly sorry to everyone associated with Green Book,” Vallelonga said in a statement Thursday.
