This is What Buzz Aldrin Thinks About Hollywood Leaving the American Flag Out of Armstrong Biopic

Published

Buzz Aldrin, the second man to step on the moon after Neil Armstrong, is no delicate snowflake.

In fact, he once literally punched a man in the face for questioning the moon landing.

If that doesn’t make you reconsider the conspiracy theory, I don’t know what will.

So when Aldrin, now 88, caught wind that Hollywood’s upcoming biopic on Neil Armstrong would be–astonishingly–leaving out the whole American flag aspect of the moon landing, he was less than thrilled.

I don’t know about you, but I personally still can’t even conceive how they could leave such a key aspect of the first moon landing out of the film. It’s like doing a movie on Rosa Parks and leaving out the bus, Benjamin Franklin and leaving out the kite, or Anne Frank and leaving out the diary.

Aldrin, apparently, was also stunned and, in the absence of Armstrong himself weighing in on the exclusion of the flag he famously saluted on the moon, took to Twitter (love that Buzz Aldrin has a Twitter account) to declare his allegiance to the flag and the nation it represents.

To drive the point home, one Twitter user also posted a picture of Buzz Aldrin wearing a t-shirt of an astronaut planting the American flag on the moon and American flag suspenders as he salutes a picture of himself saluting the flag on the moon, subsequently winning the internet for the day and making my entire week:

Well, there you have it, folks.

That’s what Aldrin thinks about this idiotic nonsense of leaving the flag out of the Armstrong biopic and I challenge anyone to top that.
