What a pathetic putz.
Quentin Tarantino called the cops 13 days before whipping a crowd up into a frenzy over when he called police murderers, asking them to come over and deal with someone who broke onto his property.
Law enforcement tells TMZ, Quentin was at his L.A. home October 11th at around 2 PM when he noticed someone in his backyard. We’re told Quentin asked the guy to leave but he refused. Either Quentin or a member of his staff then called 911 and asked cops to come help.
We’re told cops arrived minutes later and talked to the intruder who left without incident.
Just 13 days later, Quentin addressed a crowd at a NYC rally against “police terror,” and fired them up by saying, “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.”
What a dope. Meanwhile, he’s still trying to spin his way out of his mess.
“Mr. Tarantino lives in a fantasy world. That’s how he makes his living,” Beck said. “His movies are extremely violent, but he doesn’t understand violence. … Unfortunately, he mistakes lawful use of force for murder, and it’s not.”
The timing of the boycott call comes at a crucial time for Tarantino and Weinstein Co. co-chairman Harvey Weinstein. Over the years, Weinstein has relied on the commercial success of Tarantino’s films, which have included “Pulp Fiction,” “Inglourious Basterds” and “Django Unchained,” to bankroll the production, acquisition and marketing costs of the rest of his slate.
