Over the previous couple of weeks, the DC Comics film Joker has been beneath loads of scrutiny over the way it depicts violence, with some critics claiming that its glorification might be misconstrued and encourage violent acts. But late night time talkshow host Jimmy Kimmel has a really completely different criticism of the film, and it is one which has introduced loads of followers coming to the protection of actor Joaquin Phoenix after his look on the present. Phoenix appeared on a final night time when the host performed a clip of Phoenix berating Joker cinematographer Lawrence Sher, placing him on the spot about what he was saying within the outtake.
In the clip, Phoenix is criticizing Sher till he will get to the purpose the place he cannot proceed the scene, strolling out of the body.
“The constant whispering, just shut the f— up dude. I’m trying to like find something real. [ bleep ] dude. F—. Sorry, f—. It’s not a big deal. It’s not a big deal. Yeah, it kinda is. F—. I know you started the f— Cher thing, Larry. F—- ] making fun of me. Like I’m a f— diva. It’s not even an insult. Cher, really? Singer, actor, dancer, fashion icon — how’s that a f— insult? F— I can’t do this, man.”
Phoenix went on to apologize for his phrases after Kimmel performed the clip.
“Look, sometimes, sometimes movies get intense, because you’re a lot of people in a small space and you’re trying to find something,” Phoenix says. “So you can feel intense, but um, that was supposed to be private. I’m sorry you guys had to see that.”
He added, “I am sorry, but he did whisper constantly while we’re trying to work, and sometimes it’s really hard to find the emotion you’re after, so it was wrong of me, I’m sorry, but he shouldn’t have done it.”
Fans have come to Phoenix’s protection, although it’s curious how Kimmel got here into possession with the clip of the unreleased film’s outtakes and why it was aired on this method. Warner Bros. Pictures has possession of this footage, and it is bizarre that they’d even ship this footage to Kimmel to place their star actor on the spot amid all of the drama surrounding the movie already.
Regardless, followers attacked Kimmel for his interview with Phoenix and the way it performed out. Read on to see what followers are saying concerning the interview.

He was arrange. That “outtake” clip was clearly meant to embarrass him. If a visitor is a bit awkward, don’t TRY to make him really feel extra awkward.

Jimmy Kimmel is such a fucking bully. Belittling Joaquin Phoenix with unfunny jokes about him after which releasing a non-public outtake from the movie that made Phoenix embarrassed and made him apologise for… Kimmel ought to apologise for exhibiting it within the first place.
