After his latest film project failed to meet its fundraising goals on Kickstarter, outspoken German director Uwe Boll posted a series of videos online Sunday to go after crowd funding and to stick it to both Hollywood and fans who buy into the culture.
“It’s so absurd and fake,” Boll said of the film industry.
Attempting to raise enough money to begin work on another Rampage sequel, Boll became irate after his third online fundraising campaign failed, Variety reports.
The temperamental director uploaded two videos Sunday and unloaded on nearly everyone.
“Basically, my message is ‘f–k yourself,’ because that is so f—ing absurd. What retarded amateur idiots collecting money on that absurd websites?” the German filmmaker said of Kickstarter.

With three days remaining, Rampage 3: No Mercy has only raised a reported $24,500 with its current campaign, which follows a previous unsuccessful campaign on the site Indiegogo.
Uwe said: “It’s all f—ing bulls–t. I will never do it in my life again, for me, crowd funding is absolutely dead.”
“It looks like nobody gives a sh– about Rampage 3, so maybe I shouldn’t do it, then,” he said. “I have enough money to play golf until I’m dead… I want to do Rampage 3 because it is an important movie.”
In a separate video, Boll attacked Hollywood culture and a slew of A-list celebrities.
“They are laughing about you[sic] because you make $2,000 a month. You bring it to the box office to watch the next brainwashing completely f—ing bulls–t.”
For personal gain, Boll said, “Pieces of s–t like Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie and George Clooney, they do all the f—ing charity stuff.”

The German also referred to Hollywood’s heavyweights as “bulls–t idiots,” and accused them of being liars and cheaters who involve themselves in charity work so they can continue to drive “Ferraris in Beverly Hills.”
He then went after China and India for their financial presence in cinema: “I’ll find another Chinese, Alibaba idiot… who wants to see his f—king yacht in Cannes to f–k supermodels. That is the movie business!” he said, per Variety.
Boll made headlines in 2006 after he challenged critics of his movies to fight him in a boxing ring. He also challenged directors Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary to fight him, but both declined.
The director is known for producing films such as House of the Dead, Postal, Auschwitz, Rampage, and Capital Punishment (Rampage 2).
Rampage 3 is scheduled for a May 2016 release.
