Quentin Tarantino has been criticized for his controversial film that used the N-word many times, but it hasn’t kept him from walking away without stirring the pot as he again used the n-word when Tarantino spoke with press after winning a Golden Globes award for Django Unchained.
The writer-director won the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay on Sunday and didn’t miss a beat discussing the film’s use of the N-word. The Hollywood Reporter says that Tarantino reportedly argued that his critics are “saying I should massage. They’re saying I should whitewash. They’re saying I should lie.” He then adds: “I would never do that when it comes to my characters.”
Tarantino’s message to the press has been consistent even while on press tour for the film. In an MTV interview, he said: “I think it’s kind of ridiculous, because no one can actually say with a straight face that we use the word more than it was used in 1858 in Mississippi. So since they can’t say that, what they’re basically [saying] is I should lie. I should pretty it up. I should lie, and I don’t lie when it comes to my characters and the stories I tell.”
