With the release of “The Hateful Eight” just 10 weeks away (January 8), and with an obvious eye on appeasing the black press, over the weekend in New York, director Quentin Tarantino locked arms with the left-wing, anti-police hate group Black Lives Matter (or an offshoot of the hate group) and called police officers “murderers.”
Referring specifically to police officers, and speaking before a sign that read “Stop Police Terror,” Tarantino told the gathered anti-cop hate group: “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.”
Just a few days before, Randolph Holder, a 33 year-old off-duty police officer was gunned down just a few miles away in Harlem.
Tarantino’s cynical pandering to the black press and his objectively appalling lies about the very same first responders we honored after 9/11, is now facing a backlash from New York City police officers, their chief Bill Bratton, and their union, which is calling for a boycott of the “The Hateful Eight”:
The police officers that Quentin Tarantino calls “murderers” aren’t living in one of his depraved big screen fantasies — they’re risking and sometimes sacrificing their lives to protect communities from real crime and mayhem. New Yorkers need to send a message to this purveyor of degeneracy that he has no business coming to our city to peddle his slanderous “Cop Fiction.” It’s time for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino’s films.
On Twitter, the news of the boycott is still hot. These are examples from just the last ten minutes. As you can see, the anger against Tarantino is intensifying:
Somebody needs to give Tarantino a good shellacking. He’s ignorant and he’s inciting violence. #Outnumbered

Quentin Tarantino calling policemen ‘murders’ is ridiculous. He’s worthless.

Bratton Slams is completely right for calling Tarantino out on him calling police officers “murderers”
