Quentin Tarantino Protests Police Brutality So NY Police Union Decide To Boycott His Movies

New York City’s police union is calling for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino movies after the director blasted officers during a rally against police brutality Saturday — less than a week after an officer was killed by an armed-suspect.

“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,” the “Django Unchained” director told a crowd of protesters in Washington Square Park, saying that cops are too often “murderers.”

The rally came four days after NYPD Officer Randolph Holder was fatally shot in the head while chasing a gunman in East Harlem. When asked about the timing of the rally, Tarantino called it “unfortunate.”

Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said in a statement Sunday to the New York Post, “It’s no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too.

“The police officers that Quentin Tarantino calls ‘murderers’ aren’t living in one of his depraved big-screen fantasies — they’re risking and sometimes sacrificing their lives to protect communities from real crime and mayhem,” the statement continued. “New Yorkers need to send a message to this purveyor of degeneracy that he has no business coming to our city to peddle his slanderous ‘Cop Fiction.’ It’s time for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino‘s films.”
