Palin: Celebrity Critics Are Haters

Wednesday, 29 Jun 2011 03:15 PM

The new documentary about Sarah Palin begins with 10 minutes of commentary from some of the entertainment world’s biggest names making vulgar comments about the former Alaska governor. The barrage prompted Palin to wonder where the hate comes from, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The paper said that Palin, attending the Iowa premier of “The Undefeated,” stared uncomfortably at the screen as Matt Damon, David Letterman, Madonna, Howard Stern and Bill Maher and others insult her. The opening also includes shots of her being hung in effigy.

"This is the first that I've seen much of that. It kind of takes you back. It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, What's your problem? And what was the problem? And what is the problem? What would make a celebrity, like you saw on screen, so hate someone that they'd seek their destruction, their death, the death of their children? What would make someone be so full of hate and, I guess, a sense of being threatened that they would want to see that person destroyed?," the paper reported.

After the insults, the pro-Palin film, directed by Steve Bannon, switches to a dark screen and then a Bible verse appears that says, "By their fruits ye shall know them." The newspaper asked Palin if she intended to defend herself against future insults.

"I think the movie does that for me,” she told the paper. “But you know, there's never really a venue that absolutely lets somebody set the record straight. I mean, there are so many false narratives about me, about Todd, about our kids, about my record, about my team that has worked so hard together, that there's never gonna be a way to absolutely set the record straight."
