Robert Downey Jr is accused of making a racist remark about Oscar-winning Mexican

Downey did a good job of mocking a nut with faint praise but mentioning that the nut was Mexican was a big offense

The Mexican

The actor, who is promoting his new film Avengers: Age of Ultron, was asked what he thought of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's claim that superhero movies were 'cultural genocide'.

The Hollywood star told The Guardian: 'Look I respect the heck out of him. I think for a man whose native tongue is Spanish to be able to put together a phrase like 'cultural genocide' just speaks to how bright he is.'

Mr Inarritu, who took home the Academy Award for best director for Birdman at this year's ceremony, slammed action films in an interview with Deadline in 2014.

He said: 'I sometimes enjoy them because they are basic and simple and go well with popcorn. The problem is that sometimes they purport to be profound, based on some Greek mythological kind of thing. And they are honestly very right wing.

He added: 'Superheroes…just the word hero bothers me. What the f*** does that mean?

Birdman? That bit of ugly navel gazing is "high art"? I'll take Marvel movies any day over that dreck.
