JoJo Rabbit was up for six Oscars on Monday and managed to take home Best Adapted Screenplay.
But while these honours are all well and good, there was something else on the mind of the film’s writer and director, Taika Waititi.
According to Waititi, who also plays Hitler in the film, Apple needs to fix its damn keyboards.
Waititi’s displeasure with iMacs was revealed when he was asked what writers should be asking for in the upcoming Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) talks.
While one might expect the subject of pay and rights to come up in regards to union negotiations, Waititi chose absolutely annihilate the Apple keyboard for a full minute instead.
Taika Waititi's anti-hate satire might feel like it was created as a response to the wave of Trump-era fascism, but Waititi has been trying to make Jojo Rabbit happen for almost a decade. In a new interview, Waititi discussed the long road for the film and why, just because it wasn't created for the here and now, doesn't mean that's not why it exists.Read more
“Apple needs to fix those keyboards. They’re impossible to write on. They’ve gotten worse. They make me want to go back to PCs” said Waititi.
After asking the press pit for a show of hands in regards to who uses a PC, the director continued the sledging the keyboards, stating that they don’t help his back and tendon problems
“The WGA needs to step in and do something.”
