Jihad Watch recently reported about Golden Globe-winning writer Nick Vallelonga apologizing for his “Islamophobic” tweet that revealed he saw New Jersey Muslims cheering 9/11. As absurd as it was to see Vallelonga lie to himself and to the world in order to appease dhimmi Leftists and Islamic supremacists, the situation escalated fast and shows how far Hollywood culture (which has a significant impact on American culture) has descended into Sharia adherence. It wasn’t enough of an appeasement for Vallelonga to apologize and withdraw the tweet. It was subsequently announced that Vallelonga would not attend the Critics’ Choice Awards, “or have much of a presence at all on the awards circuit for the rest of this season.” This is despite the fact that Green Book was nominated for seven Critics’ Choice Awards.
Even Participant Media, which produced Green Book, threw Vallelonga under the bus. It “released a statement of its own: ‘We find Mr. Vallelonga’s Twitter post offensive, dangerous and antithetical to Participant Media’s values. We reject it in no uncertain terms.’”
“‘Green Book’ Screenwriter Won’t Attend Critics’ Choice Awards Amid Fallout From Anti-Muslim Tweet (Exclusive),” The Hollywood Reporter, January 11, 2019:
Nick Vallelonga, one of Oscar hopeful Green Book’s screenwriters and producers, will not attend Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards, or have much of a presence at all on the awards circuit for the rest of this season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Vallelonga, 59, whose father, Tony Lip, is portrayed by Viggo Mortensen in the film (opposite Mahershala Ali’s Don Shirley), won a Golden Globe on Sunday night when the film was awarded best screenplay. The film also picked up a Globe for best picture (musical or comedy), and Ali won the supporting actor Globe.
However, Vallelonga has been under fire since Wednesday, following the resurfacing of a 2015 tweet in which he addressed a tweet to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump about a debunked conspiracy theory: “100% correct. Muslims in Jersey City cheering when towers went down. I saw it, as you did, possibly on local CBS news.”
Vallelonga subsequently deleted the tweet — and his Twitter account — before issuing a statement in which he said: “I want to apologize. 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. I especially deeply apologize to the brilliant and kind Mahershala Ali, and all members of the Muslim faith, for the hurt I have caused. I am also sorry to my late father who changed so much from Dr. Shirley’s friendship and I promise this lesson is not lost on me. Green Book is a story about love, acceptance and overcoming barriers, and I will do better.”
Participant Media, which produced Green Book, released a statement of its own: “We find Mr. Vallelonga’s Twitter post offensive, dangerous and antithetical to Participant Media’s values. We reject it in no uncertain terms.”
Green Book is nominated for seven Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday — best picture (Vallelonga, Farrelly, Jim Burke, Charles B. Wessler and Brian Currie), best director (Farrelly), best actor (Mortensen), best supporting actor (Ali), best screenplay (Vallelonga, Currie and Farrelly), best score (Kris Bowers) and best actor in a comedy (Mortensen).
