Rami Malek: Working with Bryan Singer was ‘not pleasant’

FILE PHOTO: Director Bryan Singer arrives at a screening of X-Men Apocalypse at a cinema in London, Britain, May 9, 2016. But it looks like he won't find many allies in the LGBTQ community; "Bohemian Rhapsody", a watershed film about a queer rockstar, was removed from the GLAAD Media Awards ballot last month following The Atlantic piece.

Singer was sacked from Bohemian Rhapsody two weeks before the scheduled end of shooting over what the studio called "unexplained absences".

Singer had been among those nominated for his work on the Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody", which he was sacked from in late 2017.

In previous interviews, Malek has said he had "creative differences" with Singer.

NEW YORK-Rami Malek says working with director Bryan Singer before the latter was sacked from "Bohemian Rhapsody" was "not pleasant".

In a statement on Wednesday BAFTA said it considered Singer's alleged behavior "completely unacceptable and incompatible" with its values.

BAFTA said the film was still nominated in the Outstanding British Film category and that "the other individuals named as candidates in respect of the film remain nominees".

The nomination "suspension" placed on Singer "will remain in place until the outcome of the allegations has been resolved", the statement read.

Singer denied the allegations and said it was a "homophobic smear" timed to exploit Bohemian Rhapsody's success.

Singer's unprecedented BAFTA nomination suspension has sparked theories that the organization may be doing damage control ahead of "Bohemian Rhapsody's" win on Sunday. "Something tells me it probably won then", one astute netizen observed.
