LOS ANGELES, July 28 (UPI) -- News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch said via Twitter the Summer Olympics opening ceremony in London was "a little too politically correct."

Friday night's event was helmed by "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle and featured a performance by music icon Paul McCartney and appearances by Kenneth Branagh and Rowan Atkinson.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II also had a rare cameo in a comic video clip alongside current James Bond portrayer Daniel Craig.

"London Olympic opening surprisingly great, even if a little too politically correct," Murdoch tweeted Saturday without elaborating. "Danny Boyle a creative genius."
