James Cameron didn’t hold back after a group of fans recently booed him.
On Saturday, as the acclaimed director was leaving a Los Angeles screening of his new film “Avatar: The Way of Water”, a small crowd of fans booed him for refusing to stop to autograph their personal items.
One person even yelled, “F**k ‘Avatar,’” as Cameron was escorted into a black vehicle.
Before the car took off, the Oscar-winning filmmaker rolled down his tinted window just enough for him to reveal his hand before flipping them his middle finger.
