Give up movies!

Written by 

Film maker James Cameron’s advice to New Zealanders hasn’t gone down well.

In a TV interview he urges New Zealanders to give up dairy and meat and claims the country isn’t living up to its clean green image.

Well, twitter users let him know how they felt.

Radio personality Sean Plunket tweeted: “Hey James Cameron, give up making movies”.

Another twitter user simply said: “Let’s send him packing”. Cameron owns more than 1500 hectares of rural Wairarapa land, where he is living with his wife Suzy while shooting the next films in his Avatar franchise.
