Legendary Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, has joined in the criticism of the “First Man” movie. The Daily Mail reports:
Buzz Aldrin appeared to criticize Neil Armstrong biopic First Man for leaving out the planting of the American flag on the Moon.
The 88-year-old, who was the second man to set foot on the Moon, on Sunday tweeted a picture of the flag planted after the landing in 1969.
He captioned the photo: ‘Proud to be an American.’ Aldrin also re-tweeted a photo of him saluting next to the same picture.
It is an apparent dig at Oscar-winning director Damian Chazelle’s controversial decision not to include the planting of the flag at the end of his critically acclaimed movie.
As we see more attacks against the flag, this is a reminder that there are still patriots who love this nation.
