CNN reports Golden Globe-winner Nick Vallelonga, writer of “Green Book,” apologized for a seemingly Islamophobic tweet in 2015.
Vallelonga said to then-candidate Donald Trump that he saw “Muslims in Jersey City cheering” when the World Trade towers collapsed in the 9/11 attacks.
I spent my life trying to bring this story of overcoming differences and finding common ground to the screen, and I am incredibly sorry…
I especially deeply apologize to the brilliant and kind Mahershala Ali, and all members of the Muslim faith, for the hurt I have caused.
Vallelonga’s Twitter account has since been deleted.
