During an interview published last Saturday, American-born director Terry Gilliam had some things to get off his mind about the #MeToo movement, Harvey Weinstein, and how he believes that white males are “blamed for everything” nowadays. Though the interview was intended to promote his latest film, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, the Monty Python alum insisted he discuss something else with the Independent reporter as he was “bored” of speaking about the Adam Driver-led flick. Gilliam’s choice words began with claims about the #MeToo movement as a “witch hunt,” arguing that instead of taking responsibility for their actions, people would rather “point a finger at somebody else [and say] ‘You’ve ruined my life.’”
