I’ll be honest and say that I’m not particularly a Quentin Tarantino fan, so I tend to ignore most news that involves him. However, his recent actions are newsworthy for everyone. Basically, Quentin has been trying to get everyone incited about police violence, which is a massive issue in the US, without a doubt. People of colour are not only disproportionately profiled, but they’re also beaten and murdered at ridiculous numbers, and that can’t be denied. Quentin wanted to call out these murderers at a NYC rally a couple of weeks ago, but it turns out he still wants to use the police when it comes to his own personal security.
Law enforcement tells TMZ, Quentin was at his L.A. home October 11th at around 2 PM when he noticed someone in his backyard. We’re told Quentin asked the guy to leave but he refused. Either Quentin or a member of his staff then called 911 and asked cops to come help.
We’re told cops arrived minutes later and talked to the intruder who left without incident.
Just 13 days later, Quentin addressed a crowd at a NYC rally against “police terror,” and fired them up by saying, “When I see murders, I do not stand by … I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers.”
Quentin just clarified his comments, saying he was not referring to all cops as “murderers.”
A member of the LAPD hierarchy tells us the word going around the Dept. is that the famed director is “an ass,” but “We will still respond to calls for service at his home in a professional and timely manner.”
Obviously I’m not calling him out for using the police, but I do think it’s pretty unprofessional to try to fire up an entire crowd in such a violent way and urging them before you jet off to your mansion in Los Angeles, far away from any trouble. But whatever, Quentin Tarantino has never been known as the greatest guy in the world, so it’s not all that surprising.
