Just another Hollywood hypocrite…
With the release date less than two months away, director Quentin Tarantino is currently engulfed in a public relations nightmare of the Oscar-winner’s own making. Late Wednesday afternoon, the Philadelphia police department joined its powerful counterparts in Los Angeles and New York in calling for a boycott against the director’s $80 million film “The Hateful Eight.”
The Washington Times reports: Quentin Tarantino’s father said his son is “dead wrong” for anti-cop statements he made over the weekend during a police brutality rally in New York City.
“I wish he would take a hard, dispassionate look at the facts before jumping to conclusions and making these kinds of hurtful mistakes that dishonor an honorable profession,” Tony Tarantino added, NBC reported. “We have many friends and relatives who have served honorably in the NYPD and the LAPD and clearly, they risk their lives to keep the rest of us safe. Cops are not murderers, they are heroes.”
Philadelphia’s Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #5, which represents 14,000 cops in the city, called on its members Wednesday to join the boycott against Tarantino’s films after the filmmaker’s incendiary comments in front of hundreds of anti-police brutality demonstrators at Washington Square Park.
The fallout is the result of comments Tarantino made at a weekend anti-cop hate rally in Manhattan.
Just days after police officer Randolph Holder was gunned down in Harlem, while standing before a sign that read “Stop Police Terror,” the “Hateful Eight” director said of police officers before a Black Lives Matter-affiliated hate group, “When I see murders, I do not stand by… I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call the murderers the murderers.” via: Breitbart
