Buzz Aldrin takes his own swipe at ‘First Man’ movie with ‘Proud to be an American’ hashtag


Legendary Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin took his own dig Sunday on Twitter at the upcoming movie “First Man.”

The tweet stemmed from a decision by the director to not feature the iconic planting of the American flag on the moon in 1969.

The 88-year-old shared a picture of himself on Twitter with several hashtags that were clear digs at the film including #proudtobeanamerican.

 Aldrin stood behind Neil Armstrong on the moon and posted the photos of the two men standing by the flag.

Actor Ryan Gosling will portray Armstrong in the upcoming biopic and claimed that Armstrong saw the moon landing as an individual achievement rather than a national one.

Pat Gray seemed partial to Aldrin's tweet on Friday's show.  See his reaction in the clip above.
