Director Lars Von Trier Questioned by Police for Nazi Comments

Director Lars Von Trier Questioned by Police for Nazi CommentsSubmit Comment
Director Lars Von Trier announced that he will no longer participate in interviews or press junkets due to being questioned by police in Denmark over the controversial comments he made during Cannes 2011.

"Today at 2pm I was questioned by the Police of North Zealand in connection with charges made by the prosecution of Grasse in France from August 2011 regarding a possible violation of prohibition in French law against justification of war crimes," he wrote in a statement. "Due to these serious accusations I have realized that I do not possess the skills to express myself unequivocally and I have therefore decided from this day forth to refrain from all public statements and interviews."

During the "Melancholia" press conference at Cannes, Von Trier said that he sympathizes with Hitler and even called himself a Nazi. He ended up being banned from Cannes.

The police need to find better things to worry about over there. No wonder the European Union is in danger of collapse.

Stupid police and local authorities. Although I don't admire Von Trier for saying what he said, I can't believe he got questioned by the police just for that...

Well my friends to say in this way, the police do this kind of sh*tty stuff because they are really scare and afraid of what is going outside the world. Thatīs one reason why it would never end crime, drug trafficking and prostitution..... And thatīs more important why terrorism will never end!!!!!

This should be like Christmas for me (because I hate von Trier), but this is just stupid. It is important to seperate joke (how bad it may be) and a statement.

Well, at least he will shut up for a while now.

So, doughnut shops were on strike I guess?

Questioned him on this?

Ahh... to actually be a Nazi, one has (had) to be a member of the political party. One saying they're a Nazi holds about as much water as... oh, there has to be a Thomas Jane joke in there somewhere.

The Danish are like this. A (slight) upset in the order of things is highly suspect for them because they pride themselves in keeping the peace. Also they should be the last to speak since they're so racist and prejudice towards foreigners. Anyway, I don't care if Nazi boy von Trier is being questioned.

Transllation: "From this, I will shut the f*ck up and keep everything from myself".

Now, Lars, you can go and f*ck yourself in the dark !

f*cking idiot !
