As Twitchy told you earlier, an upcoming movie about the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, with Ryan Gosling playing Neil Armstrong, has already sparked some criticism over one iconic moment that won’t be portrayed in the film:

Gosling defended the decision to not portray an American flag being planted on the moon by saying Armstrong would have wanted it that way:

Twitter users asked American hero and retired Gen. Chuck Yeager, who was immortalized in the Tom Wolfe book “The Right Stuff” and movie of the same name, about it:

Details of other depictions in the movie remain to be seen, but Yeager responded to those questions in a couple of tweets:

Ouch! Looks like liberal Hollywood’s spin on Apollo 11 and Neil Armstrong just crashed & burned.



The write stuff: Chuck Yeager has high praise for late author Tom Wolfe

LOL! Chuck Yeager ignites dry humor afterburners to win hypothetical dogfight

LOL! It takes Chuck Yeager just 1 tweet to explain why he got into aviation (and people are loving it)
