'Green Book' Writer Nick Vallelonga Very Sorry Anti-Muslim Tweet Resurfaced

Peter Farrelly

Vallonga has since deleted his Twitter account. Just ask James Gunn, Kevin Hart, and Roseanne Barr about that.

Meanwhile, numerous people have pointed out that Green Book star Mahershala Ali is actually a Muslim, and this isn't even the only scandal that emerged about this film today! Trump claims, "thousands and thousands of people were cheering", in Jersey City, New Jersey.

'I'll tell you why, because no matter what I say, I'm going to lose half the audience, and I want everybody to see this.

A tweet from 2015 in which Vallonga agreed with Trump's claim that he saw "Muslims in Jersey City cheering" after the World Trade Center collapsed on 9/11 has placed him at the center of the Green Book controversy.

You see, before he turned his attention to more serious movies such as Green Book, Farrelly was one half of the comedic duo the Farrelly Brothers, who - along with his brother Bobby Farrelly - were known for their hit comedies such as Dumb and Dumber, Shallow Hal and Stuck on You. Look! My cock!' We do a joke where, it's like, Bob says, 'Pete's been really insane, he went out and spent $ 500 on a belt buckle.' I go, 'Bob, it's an investment, it's not a big deal.' He says, 'You're stupid!

It was a week for apologies for "Green Book" creators. 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.

Raonic and Kyrgios have played six times, each winning three matches. Somehow, it was the first career meeting between the two Aussies.

Participant Media, which co-produced and financed Green Book, also released a statement Thursday that said, "We find Mr. Vallelonga's Twitter post offensive, dangerous, and antithetical to Participant Media's values". The ceremony itself will take place on 24 February. In the same article, Ali was reported to have apologised for any offence caused by his portrayal of Shirley (who died in 2013), and was quoted as saying: "I did the best I could with the material I had".

Just days after his film "Green Book" won three Golden Globes, including the award for best picture (comedy or musical), Rhode Island native and onetime MA resident Peter Farrelly is on the defensive.

"@RealDonaldTrump 100% correct", the November 2015 tweet read. "Thousands of people were cheering".

Peter, one half of the Farrelly Brothers filmmaking duo behind classic comedies "Dumb and Dumber" and "There's Something About Mary", responded to backlash brewing after 20-year-old interviews with Newsweek and The Observer resurfaced to expose a brand new generation of readers to his old habit of flashing his penis to friends and colleagues as a joke.

The film won Best Motion Picture (Musical/Comedy), with writers Nick Vallelonga, Bryan Currie and Farrelly winning Best Screenplay.

"I was an idiot", Farrelly said. "The truth is, I'm embarrassed and it makes me cringe now".
