Nigerian Officials Try To Block 'District 9'
Nigerian information minister Dora Akunyili has asked movie houses to stop screening the science fiction film District 9 because of its unflattering portrayal of Nigerians. What do you think?
“If the Nigerians would just lose a little weight, they'd have nothing to worry about."”
Gerald Collins –
“I saw District 9, and it didn't change what I think about Nigerians. Which is nothing. I only think about America."”
Tiffany Fripp –
“Because the Nigerian government's vast oil wealth is always generously and transparently passed down to its grateful citizens, you can see why the information minister would chafe at a film that portrays Nigerians as corrupt thugs."”
