At the Grio [], Spike Lee is still setting in right!

Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman was well received at the Cannes Film Festival, and the prolific director did not hold back giving his take on how President Donald Trump has contributed to a hateful, divisive culture.

In the movie, about a black man (John David Washington) who infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan, Lee inserted a moving documentary montage at the end of the film about the conflict in Charlottesville, reports Vulture. The movie included a powerful ending messaging about Heather Heyer, the young woman was killed when a white nationalist ran her over with a car during the protests.

Yep, murdering Nazis. And it is still too cruel to punch them in the face? Seriously?

“It’s an ugly, ugly, ugly blemish on the United States of America,” Lee said at the press conference for the film.
