Oscar winner Taika Waititi told reporters that the Writers Guild of America needs to get Apple to 'fix those keyboards' in a press conference following his win.

Waititi won Best Adapted Screenplay for the satirical black comedy film 'Jojo Rabbit' at the 92nd Academy Awards held in Los Angeles last night.

A Deadline reported asked Waititi:

"With the upcoming Writers Guild talks, I was just curious, what are some of the needs that you believe that writers should be asking for in the next round of talks with producers?"

Waititi responded:

"Apple needs to fix those keyboards. They are impossible to write on. They've gotten worse. It makes me want to go back to PCs because PC keyboards the bounce back for your fingers is way better. Hands up who still uses a PC. You know what I'm talking about. It's a way better keyboard. Those Apple keyboards are horrendous, especially as the computers as laptops get newer and newer. I mean, the latest one, the latest new iMac, the keyboards are worse. I've got some shoulder problems. I've got like a sort of oos I don't know if you call it over here, this sort of thing here, which is that tendon that goes down from the like forearm down into the thumb. You know what I'm talking about if you guys are writing and what happens is you open the laptop and you are like this. We've just got to fix those keyboards. The WGA needs to step in and actually do something."

It's unclear if Waititi has used Apple's new 16-inch MacBook Pro which does return to a scissor mechanism for the keyboard.
