Twitter has uncovered some comments that Clint Eastwood made at the 1973 Academy Awards. He seemed to want to lighten the mood after a speech involving Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather. Marlon won the Best Actor award for his work in The Godfather.

At the time, Marlon was an activist for the American Indian Movement. He became friends with Sacheen and asked her to accept the award on his behalf. In her speech, she shared more about the issues at Wounded Knee and asked Hollywood to stop dehumanizing American Indians in movies.
