US President Donald Trump has trolled Oscar for awarding Best Picture to Parasite a dark South Korean comedy about class struggle and wealth inequality. He asked "can we get Gone With the Wind back please?" - a reference to the 1939 film set during the US Civil War, which at the time set a record for Oscar wins but has been criticised for its racist stereotypes and nostalgia for slavery.

 

Responding to the president's criticism, Parasite distributor Neon tweeted: "Understandable, he can't read."
