David and Charles Koch are the targets of choice for many a Hollywood politico, and the upcoming Will Ferrell-Zach Galifianakis movie “The Campaign” makes a none-too-veiled reference to the industrialists and wealthy conservative donors.
But an interview that Galifianakis gave to the New York Daily News was apparently too much for the Kochs. The comic called them “creepy.” That prompted a response from a spokesman for the Kochs, per CNN:
“Last we checked, the movie is a comedy. Maybe more to the point is that it’s laughable to take political guidance or moral instruction from a guy who makes obscene gestures with a monkey on a bus in Bangkok.”
“We disagree with his uninformed characterization of Koch and our beliefs. His comments, which appear to be based on false attacks made by our political opponents, demonstrate a lack of understanding of our longstanding support of individual freedom, freedom of expression, and constitutional rights.”
