Stop Asking Quentin Tarantino About Violence, He’ll Shut Your Butt Down

Because Quentin Tarantino makes Quentin Tarantino films, he’s been asked the same question after almost every movie he makes. Is there a connection between violence in movies and real violence? With the release of Django Unchained, British reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy had to ask Tarantino this again for maybe the thousandth time in his life.

Tarantino wasn’t having it though. He said, “Don’t ask me a question like that. I’m not biting. I refuse your question.” Guru-Murthy pushed some more and Quentin called him a wannabe slave master trying to make his puppet (Quentin) dance. He explained, “Because I refuse your question. 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.” Hm, not a monkey eh? *Crosses out banana question*

Quentin went on, “I’m here to sell my movie. This is a commercial for the movie. Make no mistake. I don’t want to talk about what you want to talk about. I don’t want to talk about the implications of violence. The reason I don’t want to talk about it? Because I’ve said everything I have to say about it. If anyone cares what I have to say about it, they can Google me. They can look for 20 years what I have to say. I haven’t changed my opinion one iota.”

He also told Guru-Murthy, “I’m shutting your butt down!” Aw, that Quentin. He uses the n-word (nagger?) 110 times in Django Unchained but he still says “butt” instead of “ass.” He’s such a nice boy.
