Kevin Rudd Angry With Robin Williams Comments
Hollywood comedian Robin Williams is under the fire of criticism after he commented on the people of Australia. The actor who was recently in the country to give voice-over for a character in the animated flick sequel, ‘Happy Feet 2’ commented that ‘Australians are just English rednecks’.
But, Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd is angry with actor’s comments and insisted that his remarks are not justified.
Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd quoted, “I think Robin Williams should go and spend a bit of time in Alabama before he frames comments about anyone being particularly redneck.”
But Williams has laughed off the comments and said, "Nice comeback, way to go K-Rudd, how's the food on the plane, good day. I was just there for two weeks. Every time I've been in Australia it's been wonderful. I love it down there. Hello."
Robin Williams also claimed that he used the same line on stage in Australia and no-one had been angry about it then.
The actor apologised, "Mr Rudd I apologise. It's linguistics. I would like to modify my terminology and say 'English good old boy'.”
He added, "If the term redneck is offensive, forgive me, sir. Please let me come back to Australia without a cavity search, and if not I'd love to go to a strip club with you in New York."
