I would like for him to espouse on the "disrespect" he feels this movie is


I will say that I was watching QT speak about the movie. He mentioned how he always wondered why more slaves didn't rebel and take revenge against their masters and that's where he got the basis of the idea for this film from

That rubbed me the wrong way. Basically insinuating our ancestors were dumb and compliant without even considering their real circumstances

Spike Lee thinks Quentin Tarantino's new slavery revenge flick "Django Unchained" is the wrong thing.

The famed "He Got Game" director says he's boycotting the new movie because he finds it insulting.

"American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them," he wrote on Twitter.

The tweet came shortly after he told VibeTV he couldn't comment on the movie starring Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio because he decided not to see it.

"I can't speak on it 'cause I'm not gonna see it. I'm not seeing it," he said in a video interview.

"All I'm going to say is that it's disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film. That's the only thing I'm gonna say," he explained. "I can't disrespect my ancestors. I can't do it. Now, that's me. I'm not speaking on behalf of anybody but myself. I can't do it."

Lee, 55, even tangled with another Twitter user who took issue with his Holocaust comparison.

"The goal of the holocaust was death and destruction; the goal of American slavery was tobacco, indigo, rice, and cotton," a post from a user called Rogue Academic read.

"Like Slaves Didn't Die? What Kind Of Academic Are You? And George Washington Didn't Own Slaves Too?" Lee responded.

Tarantino, 49, has been the subject of Lee's ire before.

Lee criticized the "Pulp Fiction" director for his liberal use of the n-word in his third feature film, "Jackie Brown," a 1997 movie starring Samuel L. Jackson and paying homage to the blaxploitation films of the 1970s.

"I'm not against the word. And some people speak that way. But Quentin is infatuated with that word," Lee said of Tarantino in an interview with Variety.

"What does he want to be made, an honorary black man?" the "Do The Right Thing" director asked. "I want Quentin to know that all African-Americans do not think that word is trendy or slick."

spike lee has been a big protestor of QT films.. so this isn't surprising.
He's consistent w/ it... so Im cool w/ it.

I will see the movie
how/when and will there be an exchange of $ when I see it-- will be the question though.
