Ratings for the 2019 Oscars may have been up, but the show didn’t get much love from the conservative community. “Nobody cares,” complained Tomi Lahren, while Candace Owens railed against the speech supporting “‘menstruation equality’ and feminism” made by the filmmakers for Best Documentary Short winner, Period. End of Sentence. President Trump took to Twitter to accuse Spike Lee of a “racist hit” because he urged viewers to “be on the right side of history.”

Bill O’Reilly, meanwhile, says he’s had it with Hollywood full stop. The former Fox News host — he left the network in 2017 after paying out a reported total of $45 million in sexual harassment settlements — tweeted Monday that, save for some “class” acts like Clint Eastwood and Jack Nicholson, Hollywood is no longer “fun.” He blames the “Alyssa Milano PC crew,” referencing the actress who has become a vocal #MeToo activist.

In his “Bill’s Message of the Day” post, the former O’Reilly Factor host went on to rant that “liberal politics killed the movies” — except for controversial Best Picture winner Green Book, of which he is a fan.

“Didn’t watch the Oscars last night,” he elaborated in the post. “Proud of that. But I’m glad Green Book won Best Picture. It is excellent.

“My pal Spike Lee showed up looking like the captain of the good ship Barney and predictably told everyone to vote against President Trump,” he continued, though Lee’s acceptance speech did not specifically mention Trump.

“American films once entertained the world with charismatic stars and brilliant screenplays,” he added. “Now we get politically correct superheroes blowing things up. The rap music thing killed pop. Liberal politics killed the movies.”

O’Reilly’s views are taking some heat, given his own past behavior. Many have accused him of longing for outdated, misogynistic attitudes.

Others agreed with O’Reilly’s sentiments.

Milano responded to the dig later that day.
