The winner of Best adapted screenplay Oscar, Taika Waititi slammed tech giant Apple for the 'horrendous' keyboards of its Macbooks. The director, while speaking to an international media outlet, said that Apple needs to "fix the keyboards" and further added that the Macbook makes him want to go back to writing on a personal computer. Waititi at the Academy Award show became the first artiste of indigenous heritage to win an Oscar. 

Waititi said, “Apple needs to fix those keyboards. They are impossible to write on. They have gotten worse, makes me want to go back to PCs because PC keyboard, the bounceback for your fingers is way better. And hands up who still uses a PC. You know what I'm talking about, it's a way better keyboard, and those Apple keyboards are horrendous. And especially as the computers -- as the laptops get newer and newer, here's the latest, the latest one, the latest new iMac, the keyboards are worse”. 

Waititi's statement also created a lot of stir on the internet. While many requested Apple to look into the issue, others disagreed with him and said that Macbook is the 'best' laptop. One user wrote, "He’s right though my 2018 MacBook Pro double spaces and puts full stops in all over the place haha". another said, "I just dumped my MacBook Pro for a Surface Book last year and boy, am I not looking back. The grass is much greener out here".

The director further even went on to blame the multinational company for causing 'some shoulder problems'. He said, “I've got, like, a sort of loose -- I don't know what you call it over here, this thing here, which is that tendon that goes from, like, the forearm down into the thumb. You know what I'm talking about, you guys who are writing”. 

He further added, "And what happens is you open the laptop and you're like this (poses). So the laptop -- you just got to fix those keyboards. WGA (Writers Guild Awards) needs to step in and actually do something”.
