LOS ANGELES, CA – Two big time players in their own right are not playing nice. A feud is brewing!
James Cameron is a big time director and producer who recently worked on the blockbuster hit, “Avatar.” Glenn Beck is a conservative who is known as a radio and television host, as well as a five-time New York Times-bestseller. Both carry a huge reputation before them, but there doesn’t seem to be much like towards one another.
Cameron blasted Beck at a press conference on Tuesday to promote the “Avatar” home-video release. He challenged the Fox News personality to a debate on environmental and political issues.
“Glenn Beck is a f—ing asshole. I’ve met him. He called me the anti-Christ, and not about ‘Avatar.’ He hadn’t even seen ‘Avatar’ yet. I don’t know of he has seen it,” said Cameron when asked what he thought about Beck.
The anti-Christ comment is a reference to Beck’s reaction to Cameron’s 2007 documentary, “The Lost Tomb of Jesus.” The documentary cast doubt on the resurrection of Jesus Christ and goes as far to make the claim that the ancient Tomb of the Ten Ossuaries belonged to Jesus’ family.
A while later, Cameron went on to call Beck “dangerous and The hollywood Reporter asked Cameron what he meant. “He’s dangerous because his ideas are poisonous,” he said. “I couldn’t believe when he was on CNN. I thought, what happened to CNN? Who is this guy? Who is this madman? and the of course he wound up on Fox News, which is where he belongs, I guess.”
The challenge has certainly been made. We’re all waiting if Glenn Beck accepts and has “dialogue” with the very successful director.
