Katt Williams

Quentin Tarantino Has No Business Using the N-Word

12/29/2012 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1229_katt_williams_QT_videoIn between getting out of jail and getting in the middle of a parking lot brawl, Katt Williams took the time to talk to TMZ about "Django Unchained" ... and threatened to beat the crap out of Quentin Tarantino if he gets the chance.

Williams didn't voice his opinion in a polite way like Spike Lee did. First he threatened to punch QT in the face, then told us, "Quentin Tarantino thinks he can say the N-word. But I checked with all of Ni**adom and nobody knows where he got his pass from. I hope he didn't get it from Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx cause they aren't going to help you when I see you."

When our photog tried to compare QT to Steven Spielberg (who made "Amistad" in 1997), Katt shot back, "Quentin Tarantino is no Steven Spielberg. Steven Spielberg doesn't wanna be black, Quentin Tarantino thinks he is. So when he meets a real ni**a, we'll see if he is or not."

Quentin, you've been warned.

Just saw the movie.....outstanding. Jamie Foxx stole your heart. Usage of "N" word was not as offensive as the barbaric mentallity of some at that time. To call the owners barbaric....doesn't do it justice. One thing did comfort me. In our short history as a country we have evolved at the speed of life in constrast to Africa and Middle East. We move forward and they are stuck with brutality,genocide, rape and destruction of villages in the year 2012.

Tarantino wrote a movie that has his actors saying "ni@@er" (the "N") word over one hundred and ten (110) times. My white, black, brown, Asian and Indian friends and I WILL NOT GO to see this movie, nor would we see it if the actors uttered cracker, dyke, pig, giggaboo, wetback, honky, chink, jap, ***got, greaser, limey, gook, kyke, rag head, peckerwood, or any other racist word 110 times. In my opinion Tarantino is clearly a racist using his position as a rich movie mogul to further his own racist agenda. His money has attracted actors who will do anything for money, even though they are already rich. Jamie Foxx, Sam Jackson, DiCaprio and Kerry Washington all need to give up acting. They are an embarrassment to the craft and we are deeply offended.

First, it is embarrasing for Katt to be so unaware that he is a joke. Second, would it be possible that Spike and Quentin cooked this up to increase movie attendance? It wouldn’t be the first time a controversy was started to get media attention. I think Mel Gibson did this right before The Passion was released. Any press is good press. I bet Quentin is saying thanks to Spike whether it was intentional or not. And, I don't think he is losing sleep over anything Katt says.

Face the word for what it means, dare to change the meaning or refuse to even acknowledge it's existence but don't claim someone else is not allowed to use it.

The use of the "N" word is nowhere near as destructive to the Black community as the behavior of an idiot like Katt Williams. It will survive bad words. It cannot survive behavior like Katt's.

Everyone's in line to soak this for some PR.

I reckon that Katts ancestors would consider a word nothing compared to actually being a slave.

All these people pontificating about this matter have no idea of the true horror slaves actually lived with every day.

Everyone today living in the comfort and security of the 13th amendment has no idea how good they have it today.

If that is how you fell then TMZ is the LAST site that exclusive interviews should be granted. This site constantly allows racial slurs without any moderation. One needs to look no further than some of the racist comments in this tread. BTW, TMZ is laughing at you, NOT with you. I'm hoping that all parties involved will be ok.

It's so stupid !!! Why is it okay for Black ppl to be racist and call every other race names and make it seem like it's a joke but this MOVIE comes out .. A lot of black ppl are offended .. Because they were slaves ?? There is a lot of other races that where slaves .. And still are in some places ... Get The Hell over it ...
