Ellis delivers latest Twitter gaffe by suggesting a man wouldn't have won best director Oscar with The Hurt Locker
The novelist and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis has found himself embroiled in yet another Twitter row after suggesting that the Oscar-winning director of The Hurt Locker, Kathryn Bigelow, is "overrated" due to being a "very hot woman".
Ellis is famous for his run-on 140-character rants on the microblogging service and previously landed himself in hot water when he suggested that the homosexual Us actor Matt Bomer was "too gay" to star in an upcoming film adaptation of the knee-trembling literary sensation Fifty Shades of Grey. He also compared watching the TV show Glee to stepping "into a puddle of HIV" last year and joked about holding a party following the death of The Catcher in the Rye author Jd Salinger in 2010.
