Katt Williams has had more than a dozen run-ins with the law over the past few months, but that doesn’t mean he’s lost his ability to start interesting, borderline inflammatory philosophical arguments. Yesterday, the comedian went off about Quentin Tarantino’s usage of the n-word in Django Unchained, saying if he comes across the director he’ll pop him in the face.
Speaking to TMZ, Williams said he wasn’t bothered at all when Steven Spielberg used the word in Amistad because Steven doesn’t think he’s black. Quentin, on the other hand, according to Katt, has always wished he was a man of color.
Here’s the actual quote…
Williams is far from the only person who has questioned Tarantino’s usage of the n-word in the past. Spike Lee famously announced last week that he’s boycotting Django, and the same subject received plenty of attention after the release of Tarantino’s earlier movies including Jackie Brown. So, clearly the subject is relevant, but just because it’s being talked about doesn’t mean there’s any truth to the allegations that he has problems with race.
What do you think? Is there any truth behind Williams’ allegation, or is Quentin very happy with his whiteness? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
