Quentin Tarantino’s latest film “Django Unchained” has been getting tons of buzz since it was released a few weeks ago. Recently, the film has earned three Oscar nominations in addition to lots of controversy over racial epithets and the hallmark of Tarantino cinema—over-the-top violence.
So when a journalist from Britain’s Channel 4 News tried to ask Tarantino about a link between the violence in his films and real-life violence, Tarantino put him to shame and “shut his butt down.”
Tarantino told journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy: “Don’t ask me a question like that — I’m not biting. I refuse your question.”
Guru-Murthy tried to bring it up again, but Tarantino used slavery analogy to stop him from talking about it: “I’m not your slave and you’re not my master. You can’t make me dance to your tune. I’m not a monkey.”
