From a report on Tarantino:
Two weeks ago, in New York City, Tarantino joined a anti-cop hate rally where he smeared law enforcement officers as “murderers.” Since exposing himself as a cop-hater,the roof has caved in on what was supposed to be a carefully calibrated promotional roll-out of Tarantino’s three-hour Western. Weinstein’s secret sauce has always been his Oscar campaigns, but this campaign is being stomped on and over-shadowed (to say the least) by his director’s objectively appalling anti-police comments.
As one major police force and organization launches a “Hateful Eight” boycott, Weinstein is said to be “furious” over Tarantino’s comments.
Harvey Weinstein, head of the Weinstein Company, is posed to lose in the millions over Tarantino's reckless actions. Tarantino is like a awkward teenager who wants to be accepted. He is not viewed as “cool” by Hollywood standards, so he leaps without thinking to add his squeaky voice to a Black Lives Matter(BLM) demonstration. He is not in command of the facts, and buys the story straight up from those leaders at BLM. He makes a fool of himself.
Tarantino's father Tony weighed in:
“I love my son and have great respect for him as an artist but he is dead wrong in calling police officers, particularly in New York City where I grew up, murderers,” Tony Tarantino said.
“He is a passionate man and that comes out in his art but sometimes he lets his passion blind him to the facts and to reality.
“I believe that is what happened when he joined in those anti-cop protests,” Tarantino said. “I wish he would take a hard, dispassionate look at the facts before jumping to conclusions and making these kinds of hurtful mistakes that dishonour an honorable profession.
“We have many friends and relatives who have served honorably in the NYPD and the LAPD and clearly, they risk their lives to keep the rest of us safe. Cops are not murderers, they are heroes.”
Tony Tarantino, speaking with Sean Hannity, stated his son “should apologize”. Tony Tarantino also told Hannity he is not close with his son, but “his family members are cops in New York and Los Angeles”.
Police officers and those that support them have a long memory. Most Americans do not believe all cops are horrible, and are out to kill blacks. Tarantino aligning himself with a fringe group, looked like an attention seeking moron.
Unfortunately, for Tarantino, his actions do have consequences. His movie will be boycotted, and most Hollywood companies will shy away from backing a man who has cemented his public persona as a person who believes cops are out to kill blacks. It is a stupid hill to die on, Quentin.
