On last night's show, Arsenio Hall became the first person to get a response from director Steve McQueen about the heckling incident that led to Armond White's ouster from the New York Film Critics Circle. Kind of. Hall, unfortunately, only asks McQueen about being called "an embarrassing doorman and a garbageman" and not the at least marginally salient complain that his film is "white liberal bullshit," but he at least implicitly addresses White's objection to the flim's violence: "Either I was making a film about slavery or I wasn't."
