Lars Von Trier proceeded to say he is "not against Jews" however released a rant with regards to Israel, labeled it a "pain in the a**."

The filmmaker - whose new movie was already released to excellent recognition from correspondents - was instructed to apologies for his statements to Cannes authorities, who spelled out that he sensed he'd "allowed himself to be egged on by a provocation" throughout the screening process.

Having said that, coordinators at Cannes decide the comments were being too questionable for comfort and ease, and have proclaimed Von Trier "persona non grata" at Cannes festival.
