Despite Littlefeather’s speech being met with support, others at the awards were bothered by her speech, including Wayne.
Wayne attempted to approach her on stage as if to get her off but was restrained.
In a statement uploaded online by the Academy board last month, Littlefeather received an official apology from former President David Rubin, acknowledging the “abuse” and “emotional burden” she faced at the ceremony.
And in a new interview with Variety, Littlefeather said that although she didn’t notice what Wayne was doing at the time, she thinks he was responsible for the “most violent moment” in the history of the Oscars.
“I found out that he had been restrained by six security men from assaulting me while I was on that stage,” she told Variety. “That was the most violent moment that had ever taken place at the Academy Awards.”
