At least he's honest.

"The charge made in many of the letters of killing a donkey 'for entertainment' is one that I refute on the grounds that such charges can only originate from ignorance of my films ... particularly 'entertaining' is something surely nobody would call them!"

--Lars Von Trier, from a press release announcing the removal of all scenes involving donkey butchery from his upcoming slave-epic Manderlay.

At the same time, it's sort of a shame that the donkey scenes are being cut; it means that John C. Reilly pulled out of the picture for nothing.

As John Waters might say, at least the donkey got to be in a movie. Or would have, I guess.
