“I know everyone’s talking about the 50th anniversary of Beatles on Ed Sullivan, but this is also the 50th anniversary of John Waters’ first film in 1964, ‘Hag in a Black Leather Jacket’, about a gay teenager in suburban Baltimore. The film is about an interracial wedding, shot from the roof of his parents’ garage, and the wedding is presided over by a KU KLUX KLANsman. So the next time you’re working on a script, and you go, ‘Are we going too far? Are we being a little offensive?’ Just think back FIFTY YEARS AGO, think of John Waters, and MAN. THE. FUCK. UP.”
