Tarantino bitchslaps interviewer: 'I am not your monkey'1/11/2013
Quentin Tarantino just flipped out on a British TV interviewer, refusing to answer a question on whether movie brutality is linked to real-world violence. “"I refuse your question. I'm not your slave and you're not my master”, spat the Oscar winner, continuing: “You can't make me dance to your tune. I'm not a monkey". Although there are more diplomatic ways to dodge a question, you can sympathize with Tarantino. He’s been making stylized beat-‘em-up flicks for two decades, and his views on whether life imitates violent art are well known (his take: it doesn’t). It seems fair to shut down a lazy interviewer.
Was Tarantino's reaction justified?
