Katt Williams

Quentin Tarantino Has No Business Using the N-Word

EXCLUSIVE

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.

I had no idea there were so many people who wanted to use the N-word so bad. Trust me, I'm black, you're not missing out on anything exciting. If it makes you feel better, you can use my yearly quota of the N-word. I don't use it anyway. AND this will ensure that the person on the receiving end will interpret your N-word to mean brotherly love.

No wonder why this moron keeps going to jail. Hahaha Katt Williams, you are a ****ing tool. Nobody cares about you. Keep threatening a modern genius... I hope they lock your washed up ass behind bars for the rest of your crack smoking, pole sucking life.

I don't know that Tarantino is a fighter but I am. Any time, any place, I will fight Katt, just because I would love to, just to shut his trap for him. I don't care about him in jail and this and that, I just want to beat his ass!!!

I like working out, being funny, dogs, cats, aquariums, sunshine, fine film, sports on TV or live, Dbacks, Cards, Sundevils, Suns reading,current events, clothes, slacking, art galleries, the zoo, wildlife and cactus. I'm not a big party guy, I like to dress nice, I play guitar very well I'm told, love music. I'm polite, sarcastic, witty, dumb, sweet, spacey, pragmatic, absent minded, detail driven, analytical and deep all at the same time! also a great cleaner, medium maintenance, well read. I am also intellectual, sensitive, creative, misunderstood, enigmatic and unmechanically inclined. As well as skinny, dark eyed and talented. Concerts are fun, gardening is a riot.
Cats are cool, dogs rule.

I like The White Stripes, Jeff Beck and tons of others. Stones are number one. Also James Brown.

Dear KS1111,

I'm not sure why you feel I'm being a "...victim of things that did not happen" to me. Is it because I questioned the use of the word Django? For sure, you've made a valid point.- perspective makes a huge difference. Django apparently has vast difference in meaning depending upon which language it is being spoken.

You seem to indicate that you want the right to use the n-word, yet you do not use the term personally. I do not understand your rationale or your logic. Grandma always said the only person crazier than a fool is one who argues with one. It seems you have established yet another point- that of me being dumb for going back and forth in this circular conversation. And so sir I bid you adieu and adieu.

Your friend,
Melanie

KS1111,

One last point of contention- I have no opinion of the n-words. One might say that I am an observer of the emerging characteristics of the n-words as it enters the domain of common knowledge. The n-word ending in "er", in substance, predates me. For that reason it seems as if it almost belongs to antiquity. Notable, few seem to notice that female slaves were often referred to as "nigglests"; or at least that is what I have discovered in the text of newspapers from the 1800's. I've read comments leading me to have the feeling that the movie is historically accurate. Were female slaves referred to as "nigglests" in the movie? The n-word ending in "a" is gender specific. Despite the cordial vibe, I can not say that I have personally felt the emotional impact of the word given it's gender specific aspect. I had previously mentioned that the n-word is being subplanted with the word "ninja". This is the first n-word that is culturally race/gender non-specific. Amazing how the word continues to transform over time. Of course each form of the word takes on certain connotations. We can have that dialouge some other time.

Namaste,
Melanie

Katt Williams is a stupid old crack head.. Shut up!!! People like you keep stupidity alive. I'm black and I dont care about a word in a movie.. Its a word that was so offensive in the past that the movie showed how it was used. Its a movie.. Let it go.. Ignore anyone that uses it. Katt Williams need to jump in one of the Great Lakes and drown.
