Quentin Tarantino - Beef Lessons Required – Quentin Tarantino Won’t Waste Time on Spike Lee Spat

Pffft… Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino clearly needs beef lessons. He has refused to engage in his public spat with Spike Lee any further.

Which, you know, shows a great deal of decorum and everything, but it’s a bit of a let-down for those of us sat at our laptops, munching on popcorn, still too lazy to get off our backsides after the festival break and desperate to live vicariously through other people’s drama, now, isn’t it?

Just to quickly update you on the content of this public war of words, Spike Lee caught wind of the fact that Django Unchained, which is set in the 1800s, uses the word n*gger and although he’s not seen the movie, he was quick to slate Tarantino and accuse him of racism. On Twitter, Lee wrote “American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them.” Tarantino has said today, though, that he would not “waste time” responding any further to the discussion, having already stated that the dialogue used was appropriate to the time that the movie is set. That beef is nowhere near cooked and it’s going in the bin, it seems.

What Tarantino really needs to do is head over to Twitter and take a look at Angel Haze and Azealia Banks if he wants to see what real beef looks like.
