"Chappelle's Show" Star

Blasts Spike Lee

CHILL! Django's Just a Film

Spike Lee
needs to relax ... so says "Chappelle's Show" star Donnell Rawlings, who tells TMZ, the n-word-filled "Django Unchained" is a fun movie with a happy ending ... and THAT'S IT.

Rawlings was out in L.A. last night when he came to Quentin Tarantino's defense -- blasting Spike Lee for his criticism of Quentin's usage of the n-word in the film (110 times to be exact) ... which Spike called disrespectful to his ancestors.

Donnell said, "Spike Lee, I know you been talking a lot of sh*t. You don't like nobody's movies. You don't like Tyler Perry movies. You don't like Quentin movies. I don't even think you like YOUR movies."

Donnell added, "If you don't understand, Quentin's movie is a Quentin movie. It's not a real story ... It's only a damn movie."

By the way, Donnell's favorite part of the movie? "NO SLAVE VOICE!" You gotta see his explanation ... pretty damn funny.

Spike Lee would be nobody if the N word didn't exist.

I wonder if Quentin anticipated all these N-word/ slavery issues happening. It's annoying, people should just watch the film, not say the n-word, and go to bed.

Spike Lee's last movie had the "N" word in it 56 times. Is Spike upset that Quentin outdid him? Meh, if a freakin' movie about slavery, that's what the white scuzzbag slave owners used. I just think it's keeping with the historical aspect.

What do you expect from Spike Lee?... He's a little arrogant douche with no respect for Tarantino's genius.

I think Lee just really , really wants to matter to someone. & this guys right. He has said negative things about Perry's movies as well. It could be that he's jealous but I really think he needs the attention.

It isn't about the movie. It is about Spike's ego. He thinks he should be the only person allowed to make a movie about black culture or history, plus he's upset that he hasn't be relevant since the 90s.

Funny, since Django isn't out on DVD, that Spike Lee would see the movie, be upset with the use of the n-word, then watch the movie all over again counting how many times he heard the word.


Too much time on your hands, Spike. Go do something creative and stop being the conscience of those who pay to be entertained.

That's like telling Tony Montana not to say the "F" word.

Spike who? He's just jealous because he likes to think he makes 'edgy' films that have a cult following like QT, but the reality is he hasn't had a hit movie in 30 years. The only reason his early movies were successful was nobody was making films with black actors back then, so he cornered that market.
Now there are so many black actors who are the best in the biz who wouldn't touch a Spike Lee 'joint.'
