|No regrets and no apologies.|
The controversial Quentin Tarantino was interviewed by the Los Angeles Times about the uproar.
Tarantino said that "He doesn't give two fucks about the uproar". He said they're trying to "shut him down" because he spoke the honest truth about police brutality.
He believes that they're upset because he's managed to get the discussion into the mainstream.
He appeared at a #BlackLivesMatter event in October and told the crowd that he said, "I cannot stand by, and I have to call the murdered the murdered and I have to call the murderers the murderers."
That led to conservative outrage by the likes of the most annoying conservative agitator, that annoying coon Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, and the police unions.
The police unions are calling a boycott on The Hateful Eight. The movie is highly anticipated.
Tarantino's estranged father went on the attack as well.
So on MSNBC's All In with Chris Hayes, Tarantino decided to take on his critics.
He hits back at his critics.
Tarantino explained that he believes that individuals like Walter Scott and Tamir Rice were murdered, and said of his critics, "I was under the impression that I was an American and I had First Amendment rights."
Tarantino repeatedly made it clear to Hayes he is not anti-cop and thinks the reason people are attacking him is because it’s easier to pick a fight with a celebrity than to actually address a serious issue.
He said they're "being inflammatory" and "slandering" him with their fake outrage, declaring that people "want me to shut up" just like they want to dismiss anyone who thinks there might be a police problem in America.
