Over on Twitter, Clint Eastwood is facing some criticism for comments he made at the 1973 Academy Awards while presenting. It happened after a speech that involved Marlon Brando, Native American activism, and a speech by Sacheen Littlefeather.

In 1973, Marlon Brando was up for Best Actor at the Academy Awards. For his portrayal of Vito Corleone in The Godfather, the actor was the favorite for the award. At the time, Brando was involved in the American Indian Movement and had become friends with Littlefeather.

At the awards, Littlefeather accepted the Best Actor award on his behalf. She commented on the issues that were going on at Wounded Knee at the time. She also made a plea to Hollywood and the film industry for their role in dehumanizing Natives in film. The speech received mixed reactions from the crowd and audiences at home.
