Richard Wilkins Has Just LOST IT On Live TV!

It’s probably the most anticipated movie of 2017.

But Today Show host Richard Wilkins could not hide his hate for the new 50 Shades Darker movie, slamming it as “the glorification of domestic violence.”

“There are plenty of laugh out loud moments because it’s so corny,” veteran entertainment reporter said in his review.

Aside from being critical of the script, which he remarked would make the Bold & the Beautiful ‘seem interesting’’ Wilkins couldn’t help bimself but speak out of over the ‘non-existent’ story line.

“Why would an impressionable young lady get into an abusive relationship with a rude, arrogant, humourless, narcissistic sadist?” he asked. “I don’t get it.”

He went on to give the movie just two out of five stars before discussing the series with co-host Lisa Wilkinson.

 “I loathed the first one,” his co-host told the panel.

“I don’t want to read the books, I don’t support that sort of stuff.”

When the first movie was released in 2015, Lisa Wilkinson claimed the movie was “domestic violence dressed up as erotica.”
