He told the Associated Press, “I’m always surprised by flagrant stupidity. I keep having more hope. The fact is that I understand it. I see it all the time. When somebody sees the opportunity to frame something in the comfort that it will be common — that they can do that and they can get a group to look at them and that they will take on those positions and never really think about what it was.”

Sean continued, “I have absolutely no apologies. In fact, I have a big f*** you for…anybody who is so stupid not to have gotten the irony when you’ve got a country that is so xenophobic. If they had their way, you wouldn’t have great filmmakers like Alejandro working in this country. Thank God we do. There’s a little inside humor with he and I knew that he would be the first person in that room to know that his film won.”

Alejandro has said publicly that he was not offended by the joke.
