Michael Moore: Clint Eastwood Threatened to Kill Me!

by at .

As you may have heard, Michael Moore's criticism of American Sniper has pissed off plenty of very vocal patriots.

Even esteemed cultural critic and noted devil without a cause Kid Rock offered his two cents, suggesting that Moore had been molested by his uncle, for some reason.

Never one to back down from a controversy (Controversy is kinda his thing.), Moore addressed the film and its director again today on his Facebook page, and spoke for the first time about an incident that may have influenced his opinion on Sniper:

"Ten years ago this past week," Moore writes. "Clint Eastwood stood in front of the National Board of Review awards dinner and announced to me and to the crowd that he would 'kill' me if I ever came to his house with my camera for an interview."

"'I'll kill you,' he declared. The crowd laughed nervously...'I mean it,' he barked, and the audience grew more quiet. 'I'll shoot you.'"

We don't know about you, but we may have wet ourselves a bit just reading that description. From the sound of things, Clint stopped just short of asking Moore if he feels lucky, punk.

Based on the video of Eastwood yelling at invisible Obama at the 2012 RNC, we knew there was a possibility getting a bit flighty in his old age, but we didn't realize the line between his movies and his real life had disappeared entirely. 

Hopefully, Moore knows to avoid any run-ins with Clint. We'd hate to see him unwittingly cast as a slow-on-the-draw villain in The Good, the Bad, and the Overweight Documentarian. *ooo-wee-ooo-wee-ooooo*
