(Newser) – James Cameron didn’t mince words yesterday when asked for his thoughts on a particular Fox News host: “Glenn Beck is a fucking asshole.” The Avatar director later amended that, saying, “He may or may not be an asshole, but he certainly is dangerous,” calling him a “madman” and his ideas “poisonous” before suggesting the two of them have a public debate. Beck, apparently, is no fan of Cameron’s either; the director said Beck once called him the "anti-Christ."

Cameron is equally unsympathetic to those who don’t accept global warming as fact, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads,” he said. “Anybody that is a global-warming denier at this point in time has got their head so deeply up their ass I'm not sure they could hear me.”
