Quentin Tarantino Isn’t Fazed By ‘Django Unchained’ N-Word Controversy: From the article ” “I think it’s kind of ridiculous, because no one can actually say with a straight face that we use the word more than it was used in 1858 in Mississippi. So since they can’t say that, what they’re basically [saying] is I should lie,” he argued. “I should pretty it up. I should lie, and I don’t lie when it comes to my characters and the stories I tell.” Unless World War II ended with Hitler being shot to death in a movie theater by an elite force of US Commandos we think that Mr. Tarantino is very much mistaken in his assertion that he is somehow true to the history of things. And if he is looking for a spirit of truthfulness he’d be better to purge these films of all anachronism before stooping to imbue “authenticity” by means of this foul and detestable word.
