Tarantino’s Dad Says Quentin is “Dead Wrong”

Daddy issues for Tarantino.

“I love my son and have great respect for him as an artist but he is dead wrong in calling police officers, particularly in New York City where I grew up, murderers,” said actor Tony Tarantino in a statement released Friday by the New York Police Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.

“He is a passionate man and that comes out in his art but sometimes he lets his passion blind him to the facts and to reality.”

Thanksgiving at the Tarantino house is gonna be a bit awkward.

Boycotts of Tarantino Being Arranged By Police

The backlash against Tarantino over his comments about police continue.

“I’m a human being with a conscience,” Mr. Tarantino, who flew in from California for the rally, was quoted by The Associated Press. “And if you believe there’s murder going on then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I’m here to say I’m on the side of the murdered.”

Murdered is a pejorative term. These people were killed by police – we don’t know if it was murder, or justified as self-defense. I’m on the side of justice, which demands that there be real investigations and punishment when wrong-doing is found.
