"MSNBC: ‘Spike Lee got really uppity.’"
Today on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, reporter Courtney Hazlett commented on the recent fight between Clint Eastwood and Spike Lee. Talking about Lee, Hazlett used the racially-loaded term “uppity” to describe the African-American film director. From this morning’s segment:
HOST: What’s going on here?
HAZLETT: What’s going on here is, during the Cannes Film Festival — I don’t know if you remember this — but Spike Lee got really uppity about Clint Eastwood and about how there were no African-Americans involved in the filming of “Flags of our Fathers” or “Letters from Iwo Jima.”
