Stanley Kubrick's Daughter Is a Far-Right Proud Boys and QAnon Fanatic - 2021-02-17
Vivian Kubrick, the reclusive daughter of legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick and the director of a making-of documentary on his movie The Shining, has been accused of "spreading anti-Semitic conspiracies," anti-vax propaganda, and violent far-right memes on Twitter.
Though notoriously uncommunicative with the press (a standard of the Kubrick family for decades), Kubrick is a vocal presence on the platform. In just the first two weeks of February, for example, she referred to Bill Gates as a "Bioterrorist," railed against COVID-19 vaccines (as well as mask-wearing generally), and posted a link inviting readers to a private QAnon discussion group.
Such tweets are only the most recent of Kubrick's public statements and appearances to come under scrutiny by fans of her celebrated father. The Daily Beast previously reported on her conversion to Scientology, saying that she had skipped her late sister Anya's funeral in 2009 due to an enforced "disconnection" from her family, while in the same year The Guardian wrote that her mother, Christiane Kubrick, considered Vivian "lost" to the church.
