The brother of Dr Donald Shirley, the black pianist featured in the Oscar-nominated Green Book, slammed it as a 'shameful travesty', he told DailyMailTV from his Milwaukee home. Maurice Shirley, 82, is speaking out as the movie, billed as a touching tale of the unlikely friendship between Shirley and racist Italian American Tony 'Lip' Vallelonga who was briefly his driver, is nominated for five Oscars. Maurice says Shirley and Vallelonga were never friends and he was fired for behaviors shown in the movie, such as his refusal to carry Shirley's luggage or open his car doors. Although the family is upset with the moviemakers, they hold no grudge against actor Mahershala Ali who plays Shirley, saying he was the only one to reach out to them on learning of their push-back.
