The film studio behind award-winning film Parasite has slammed Donald Trump after he complained about it winning Best Picture at the Oscars. 

During a rally at the Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado on Thursday, Trump lamented that he did not agree with the outcome of the Academy Awards after the South Korean film won Best Picture.

‘By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year? Did you see it?’ Trump asked rally-goers, and was met with wide-spread ‘boos.’ 

‘And the winner is… a movie from South Korea,’ Trump said, imitating those who announce category winners. ‘What the hell was that all about?’  

In response, film studio NEON shared a Tweet, insinuating that he was unable to enjoy the English subtitles from the film.

‘Understandable, he can’t read,’ the studio said in its brutal tweet.

During the rally, Trump continued: ‘We got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of it they give them the best movie of the year,’ he continued, admitting he did not see the movie.

Parasite was filmed fully in Korean, but played with English subtitles in the U.S. ‘Was it good? I don’t know,’ Trump said.

Ten non-American films have won Best Picture, including: The Artist (2011), The King’s Speech (2010), Slumdog Millionaire (2010) and the Last Emperor. Parasite is the first-ever foreign-language film to win the award.

‘The winner is… from South Korea,’ Trump continued. ‘I thought it was best foreign film. Best foreign movie. No, it was – did this ever happen before?’

Trump used the Democratic debate Wednesday as ammunition to rail against fellow billionaire Mike Bloomberg during the rally.

‘I don’t know if anybody watched last night’s debate, it got very big ratings. And you know what? Mini Mike didn’t do well last night,’ he said to the room of thousands of supporters.

‘I was going to send him a note saying, “It’s not easy doing what I do, is it?”‘ Trump suggested.

‘I don’t know. It’s not easy Mike. It’s not easy for any of them. No, Mike didn’t do too well. He went way down,’ the president insisted.

The two billionaire’s are very different heights, with former New York City mayor standing at 5ft 7in and the president at 6ft 3in.

The rally at Broadmoor World Arena, which has a capacity of more than 8,000, was held as part of a rare four-day campaign stint on the west coast as Democrats took their campaigns there with both a debate and the third primary contest.

Trump didn’t let his attention waver too far from the main point: attacking Democrats and the ‘fake news,’

The president claimed that Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar ‘choked’ Wednesday night and said her campaign died with her debate performance.

‘Look, Bloomberg made a fool out of himself last night. He choked. He’s another one who’s going ‘Oh, I can’t breath. I can’t breath. Don’t ask me the question. Please,” Trump mocked.

Although many have claimed there were a few winners Wednesday night, there is widespread agreement that Bloomberg was the loser.

The president held a rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday night as Democrats hosted their ninth primary debate in Las Vegas, Nevada around the same time.
