Tarantino downplays police call for boycott of new film – Yahoo News http://news.yahoo.com/tarantino-downplays-police-call-boycott-film-065708760.html
“Instead of dealing with the incidents of police brutality that those people were bringing up, instead of examining the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out,” he said.
“And their message is very clear. It’s to shut me down. It’s to discredit me. It is to intimidate me,” Tarantino added.
The boycott has been called by police unions in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and New Jersey, and mainly targets Tarantino’s latest movie, “The Hateful Eight”, which comes out on Christmas Day.
“It’s no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too,” Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said last week.
“I’m not being intimidated,” Tarantino said.
“Frankly, it feels lousy to have a bunch of police mouthpieces call me a cop hater. I’m not a cop hater. That is a misrepresentation. That is slanderous. That is not how I feel,” he added.
Another attempt to say it plain, which is, even then not simple.
