‘Hateful Eight’ Boycott Explodes: Philly Police Join NYPD, LAPD

With the release date less than two months away, director Quentin Tarantino is currently engulfed in a public relations nightmare of the Oscar-winner’s own making. Late Wednesday afternoon, the Philadelphia police department joined its powerful counterparts in Los Angeles and New York in calling for a boycott against the director’s $80 million film “The Hateful Eight.”

Philadelphia’s Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #5, which represents 14,000 cops in the city, called on its members Wednesday to join the boycott against Tarantino’s films after the filmmaker’s incendiary comments in front of hundreds of anti-police brutality demonstrators at Washington Square Park.

The fallout is the result of comments Tarantino made at a weekend anti-cop hate rally in Manhattan.

Just days after police officer Randolph Holder was gunned down in Harlem, while standing before a sign that read “Stop Police Terror,” the “Hateful Eight” director said of police officers before a Black Lives Matter-affiliated 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.”
