The South Korean thriller was the first foreign-langue film to win Best Picture in Oscars history

Conservative BlazeTV host Jon Miller has called the team behind the South Korean film Parasite the “destruction of America”.

Boon Joon Ho’s thriller made history by becoming the first foreign-language film to win Best Picture at the Oscars.

On Twitter, Miller took issue with Ho giving the majority of his acceptance speech in Korean – the language which the film is spoken in.

“A man named Bong Joon Ho wins #Oscar for best original screenplay over Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and 1917,” Miller wrote.

“Acceptance speech was: “GREAT HONOR. THANK YOU.” Then he proceeds to give the rest of his speech in Korean.”

“These people are the destruction of America,” he concluded.

American music icon John Legend responded by saying, “Do they pay you for these dumb takes or is this something you do for fun”

Model Chrissy Teigen slammed the host for his tweet, calling him a “fucking dumb shit.”

“What a dumb fucking tool you are, your family is embarrassed,” Teigen wrote. “At gatherings they’re literally like “how’s Jon doing that little dumb fuck tool” and everyone goes “yeah we don’t care he’s a fucking dumb shit” – come say hi if you’re out tonight.”

Miller eventually followed up his first tweet by claiming he was talking about Hollywood and not Koreans.

““These people” are obviously not Koreans but those in Hollywood awarding a foreign film that stokes flames of class warfare over 2 films I thought were more deserving simply to show how woke they are,” he wrote. “That should be clear from the rest of what I tweeted about tonight’s production.”

However, few bought into his claim.

“Then you should delete your original tweet and write one which isn’t… obviously… bigoted,” wrote one twitter user.

“Thankfully you aren’t a writer. Because writers would have to be careful about their choices of words. Parasite is, perhaps, one of the most critically AND popularly acclaimed movies of the year (rare). You don’t have to like it. But to blame politics is laughable,” wrote another.
