The mouthpieces of several police forces around the country may be calling for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino and his new film “The Hateful Eight,” but that isn’t stopping the director from standing by his words.
“I had every right to say what I said,” Tarantino told Howard Wednesday morning, explaining why he still doesn’t take back the comments he made at an October rally protesting police brutality.
“I wasn’t cavalier,” Tarantino said. “I have a lot of cop fans. I think I have established what I said. I think if you’re a really good cop, you’ll probably agree with what I said.”
According to Tarantino, he was invited to attend the RiseUpOctober event and chose to do so after growing tired of seeing several “unarmed people being shot and killed” by law enforcement officers around the country.
My problematic favorite is speaking the truth again. I really do think more people should respect him. Not only for his talent, but also for his honesty. Besides, in my opinion white people ought to see him as a kind of a role model. He is woke, he’s got an open mind and he truly cares about problems that matter.
