Quentin Tarantino N-Word: Filmmaker Drops The N-Bomb At The Golden Globes

The controversy surrounding Quentin Tarantino's usage of the n-word in "Django Unchained" has been a popular topic as of late in entertainment world.

Though the director ignited some to boycott the film and even provoking violent threats from comedian Katt Williams, the filmmaker still has no qualms about his style of directing.

Tarantino continued to address the issue backstage during this year’s annual Golden Globe awards. "If somebody is out there actually saying when it comes to the word [n-word], the fact that I was using it in the movie more than it was being used in the antebellum South in Mississippi, then feel free to make that case,” he reportedly said to the press. “But no one’s actually making that case. They are saying I should lie, that I should whitewash, that I should massage, and I never do that when it comes to my characters."

Despite the film winning a Golden Globe in the writing and acting categories, the 49-year-old failed to land a nomination for Best Director. But according to “Django” star Kerry Washington, Tarantino can view the oversight in a different light.

"When a film gets nominated for Best Picture — film is such a collaborative experience, and that nomination really is for everybody, and especially our fearless leader, Quentin," she said to MTV News. "He can own all of those nominations as his."
