Lee Daniels Tells Gotham Indy Film Awards Audience “Shut The F*ck Up!”


Lee Daniels Flips Out

Meth Mondays?

Lee Daniels may need someone to help keep his emotions in check … daily. That’s because the director didn’t only demand Gotham Independent Film Awards’ audience “shut the f*ck up” — he also credited Forest Whitaker for keeping him calm while doing background research for ‘The Butler.’

Here’s what’s being reported about Monday night’s NYC event:

“The highlight of the evening came courtesy of director Lee Daniels (“The Butler”) who called out the audience out for being too chatty while presenting the Actor Tribute award to Forest Whitaker: “Forest would love to hear you all talking throughout my speech so shut the f*ck up!”

Here’s what Lee Daniels had to say:

“When I did research on ‘The Butler’ I became very angry at White people…but Forest told me to keep my anger in, to not be a stereotypical angry black man… he helped me through that.”


  1. Enough with the antics, Lee, just put some more good films, u and OPRAH kill me trying to extend interest in the film “THE BUTLER” if they (OSCAR ACADEMY) want to nominate y’all I’m sure they will STOP EMBARASSING YOURSELVES JUST TO GET THE GOLDEN STATUE, Y’ALL ARE POPULAR ENOUGH

  2. Well, I guess this is what happens when you are pretending to be something that you are not.
    Selling out can be a Mutha. LOL

  3. Hold up. Yall man to tell me that Lee Daniels is NOT out of the closet?? GTFOH. I thought he was openly homosexual. Wow. Things you learn. Anyway, Daniels is a classes asshole. His movies suck as bad as his stank attitude.

  4. Maybe if he came out, he would feel better about himself. Stop being so angry at the world and himself.

    But if it’s not because of the gay factor, he gotta go to rehab for drugs or anger management. Yeesh
