Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam: ‘I’m tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything’

‘Former Monty Python star Terry Gilliam has hit out at the #MeToo Movement, labelling it “a witch hunt”, saying he is “tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world”.

The writer and director made comments during an interview where he also said he “better not be a man”.

Talking to the Independent, Gilliam said: “Yeah, I said #MeToo is a witch hunt – I really feel there were a lot of people, decent people, or mildly irritating people, who were getting hammered. That’s wrong. I don’t like mob mentality.

“I understand that men have had more power longer, but I’m tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world – I didn’t do it!

“I’m talking about being a man accused of all the wrong in the world because I’m white-skinned. So I better not be a man. I better not be white. OK, since I don’t find men sexually attractive, I’ve got to be a lesbian. What else can I be? I like girls. These are just logical steps.”
