IN the same week President Obama honored Steven Spielberg with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a bizarre letter from the past has come back to haunt the Oscar-winning director.

Written 36 years ago, the shocking note defends beastiality and cannibalism.

It was penned by the Oscar-winning film director to  Heavy Metal editor Julie Simmons, to express outrage at the comic-book’s adaptation of his 1979 comedy, 1941.

News of the letter emerged this week after a copy of it was posted to the Tumblr blog Panel to Panel.

In the letter he writes of his disgust saying their adaptation: “does not represent the intentions of myself, the writers or anyone connected with ‘1941.’ All of us find the artwork and content to be a savage representation of an otherwise light comedy about those times. Beyond that, it is off-putting, disgusting and terribly racist.’

Spielberg’s rant continues, in words he might not have used had he known this letter would turn up 35 years later: “Heavy Metal has protrayed (sic) our film as a beastial (sic), cannibalistic, Hieronymus Bosch nightmare.

“There’s nothing wrong with beastiality (sic) cannibalism or Hieronymous Bosch when it accurately reflects the nature of the subject matter.”

The director of classics like Jaws and Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T was clearly in a very strange place when he wrote 1941.

Bt it is not  the first time the film has come under fire.

Movie legend John Wayne begged Spielberg to abandon the World War II comedy, saying it was disrespectful to U.S troops.

The letter first appeared in Heavy Metal’s ‘1941: The Illustrated Story.’

Spielberg was joined by Barbra Streisand and 15 others when he was awarded the nation’s highest civilian honor in a ceremony held Tuesday at the White House in Washington D.C
