Quentin Tarantino Sends Message to Critics of N-Word Use in His Movies: ‘See Something Else’

Quentin Tarantino has no sympathy for critics of his work.

For years the pulp fiction The director was condemned for the extremely violent nature of his films and the use of the N-word by some of his characters.

I recently spoke to Chris Wallace on the host’s HBO Max talk show Who is talking to Chris Wallace, Tarantino said those offended should just “watch something else.”

“You talk about being the conductor and the audience being the orchestra,” Wallace told Tarantino. “So when people say, ‘Well, there’s too much violence in his films. He uses the N-word too much.’ What are you saying?”

“You should see that [something else]’ Tarantino replied. “Then look at something else. If you have a problem with my films, then they are not the films you should watch. Apparently I’m not making them for you.”

Tarantino’s frequent collaborator, Samuel L. Jackson, has repeatedly defended the director’s inclusion of the racial slur.

“It has to be an element of what the story is about. A story is context – but only for laughs? That’s wrong,” he said in an interview with The times earlier this year.

“Anytime anyone wants an example of excessive use of the N-word, they turn to Quentin [Tarantino]- It’s unfair. He just tells the story and the characters talk that way. When [12 Years a Slave director] Steve McQueen does it, it’s art. He’s an artist. Quentin is just a popcorn filmmaker.”

Tarantino recently faced renewed criticism for his comments on Wallace’s show about disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Tarantino said of Weinstein’s behavior, “I attributed it to a Mad Men-era version of the boss chasing the secretary around the desk. I’m not saying that’s okay,” before adding that “there was never any mention of rape or anything like that.”

Discuss the interview CNN this morning On Friday (November 18), host Kaitlan Collins said: “The bigger point at stake is that people knew something was happening. A lot of people… came out after that and said, “Oh, well, I had no idea”. And then you could hear people say more openly, ‘Well, we’d heard these stories and this and where there’s smoke there’s fire’. And I don’t know, the whole thing is disgusting.”
