Spike Lee unhappy over Django Unchained

The 'Do The RIght Thing' director won't be queueing up to see the new Tarantino

Spike Lee has said that he won't be going to see Quentin Tarantino's new slave era-set film 'Django Unchained'.

The outspoken director thinks that the film may not deal with the subject matter in a respectful manner.

Speaking to Vibe magazine, he said: “I can't speak on it 'cause I'm not gonna see it. I'm not seeing it. All I'm going to say is that it's disrespectful to my ancestors, to see that film. That's the only thing I'm gonna say.

“I can't disrespect my ancestors. I can't do it. Now, that's me, I'm not speaking on behalf of anybody but myself.”

Lee had previously spoken out about the film, saying on Twitter: “American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them.”

It's not the first time that Lee and Tarantino have not seen eye to eye.

Around the release of Tarantino's 'Jackie Brown', he objected to the director's liberal use of the n-word.

“I'm not against the word. And some people speak that way,” he said. “But Quentin is infatuated with that word. What does he want to be made - an honorary black man? I want Quentin to know that all African Americans do not think that word is trendy or slick.”
