Ghostbusters director Paul Feig has pleaded with the BBC to correct an "injustice" over a question about his movie on quiz show Decimate.
In a recent episode of the daytime show a checkout operator called John faced a question about who p layed Dr Erin Gilbert in the reboot of the classic film.
He correctly chose Kristen Wiig but he was told he was wrong by host Shane Richie and failed to protect £2,000 in the golden wall of cash.
After seeing the clip, Hollywood director Feig tweeted: "Dear whatever game show this is, the guy got the answer right. Kristen played Dr. Erin Gilbert. Give them the win! #wronganswergate"
After a fan told him the details of the show, he added: "Dear @BBC & @realshanerichie, a grave injustice has been done. A right answer to a Ghostbusters question was ruled wrong. Please correct!"
Richie joked the mistake was deliberate so he could draw the attention of the director, who is also responsible for Bridesmaids, The Heat and Spy, replying: " Dear @paulfeig I actually did it on purpose NOW I've got your attention I'm ready to be a ghostbuster in the hopefully soon to be follow up."
He added: " bloody yrs been trying to get attention of a Hollywood director.touring plays,Tv dramas auditions etc .1 f#%$ up on afternoon game show," adding the celebratory party horn emoji.
