"Although he hasn't seen the movie, director Spike Lee tells Vibe that Quentin Tarantino's new Civil War-era Western Django Unchained is "disrespectful to my ancestors."
Lee, whose latest film Red Hook Summer deals with race and class in the South Brooklyn neighborhood, said he has no plans to see Django Unchained. He elaborated on his dissatisfaction on Twitter, writing, "American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them." "
Compare the box office numbers from Spike and Tarantino's nigger movies and you'll see why Spike is upset.
