After Quentin Tarantino defended his usage of the N-word in his films, Lee Daniels lashed out at him with some harsh criticism.
On CNN, the producer and director who shot the film “Jewel” in 2009 and who co-created the television series “Empire” was asked about his opinion of Tarantino’s recent defence for using the N-word in his films, in which he told people who were offended by his films to “watch something else.”………………..
After the broadcast of Tarantino’s statement on the American network, Daniels suggested to the host that Tarantino should reconsider his response because it is inappropriate.
Upon being questioned over the appropriate response, he continued by saying, “Ten or fifteen years ago I would have labelled that as creative, but nigga is our word.” That’s how I see it. You have no right to state something like that, and you also have no right to feel the way that you do. Sorry about that, brother.
When asked what he says in reaction to criticism that his films include “too much violence” and that he “uses the N-word too much,” Tarantino’s first response was, “You have to see [something else. After that, switch to another show.
“If you have issues with my films, then these are not the films that you should be watching since they are not entertaining. It would appear that I’m not going to be creating them for you.”
Samuel L. Jackson, who has worked with Quentin Tarantino on multiple films, has frequently defended the director’s usage of the n-word in interviews.
In 2019, Jackson was quoted as saying to Esquire, “This is some kind of foolishness.” — You can’t just walk up to a writer and say that he can’t speak, write words, or put words into the mouths of people of their nationality and the way that they use their language. You are not allowed to do that because, if you do, it would become false, and that would not be fair. It’s just not fair.”
After the release of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” in 2019, Tarantino has stated that his subsequent feature film will be the last of his career. In addition, it was just recently disclosed that he is planning to shoot an eight-part series, and that production on the series is scheduled to start in 2023.
