Spike Lee Boycotts The Movie 'Django Unchained.' Sarah Silverman Disagrees With Him & The Film's Use Of The N-Word "You Can't Tell Art What To Do" [Video/Poll]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Outspoken director Spike Lee recently said he would boycott the movie Django Unchained. Spike told Vibe that he won't watch the slave-era film which stars Jamie Foxx and Leonardo Dicaprio because it would be disrespectful to his ancestors. The word n*gger is used over 100 times in the film.

 

 

"All I'm going to say is that it would be disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film," Spike said. "That's the only thing I'm going to say. I can't disrespect my ancestors I'm not speaking on behalf of anybody buy myself."

 

Spike later clarified his comments on Twitter.

 

 

Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman, who is known for her sarcastic and sometimes controversial sense of humor said she is a fan of Spike's, but she disagrees with him on this point.

 

"Doesn't it take place like during slavery? Wouldn't it be odd if they didn't have that horrific word in it?" she told TMZ"[Spike's] got a lot of mishegas [craziness] with a lot of art. I think you can't really tell art what to do."

Who do you agree with Spike or Sarah?

DJANGO UNCHAINED takes place 2 years before the Civil War. During slavery, the whites referred to their slaves as the "n" word. DUH. Anybody with a brain understands that slavery is a wicked crime that was committed by whites. Quentin Tarantino is simply keeping his script in a historical context. Thats how it went down back then. No sh*t its an appauling word, but the crime of slavery itself is even more appauling. Instead of speaking on a film he hasn't seen, he should watch it for himself. It is OBVIOUSLY a tale of revenge where the protagonist Django Freeman goes on a murderous rampage to rescue his wife from bondage. Its a dope movie. Instead of criticizing Quentin, Spike should focus on making a quality movie himself being that he hasn't had a quality movie in years. Hate me now.

spike is 1 THOUSAND on this one...i hadda a white teacher tell my class, slavery wasnt that bad!! and this is really what them saltine ritz keeblers want you to believe...but slavery was WICKED to tha core and it was a HOLOCAUST!! im not gon say it was worse than any other holocaust cos that is stupid!! but it was a black holocaust no doubt...and we better treat it as such and not allow other to diminish our struggle and suffering!!
if anybody denies tha jooish holocaust or even dare say it wasnt that bad...im sure they will be reprimanded, fired, outcast, censured, or worse!!
