I didn’t know Spike was still tweeting these days, not after his experience with Twitter last year. Remember that one?
Some character decided he wanted to show how “down with the brothers” he was by tweeting the address of George Zimmerman’s parents in Florida. Spike, always eager to be down with the brothers himself, re-tweeted the address to his followers.
But it wasn’t the correct address. The elderly couple that lived there weren’t the parents of the George Zimmerman charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, but another George Zimmerman.
The elderly couple received so much harassment they had to move from their home. Spike ended up apologizing profusely.
Now he’s invoking the spirits of his ancestors – via Twitter – in dissing “Django Unchained.” A quick memo to Spike:
I’d be more inclined to take you seriously, brother, if you’d apologize to the Little family for virtually excluding them from your 1992 biopic of Malcolm X. When you do that, holla back at me.
Now we come to the final category of haters. OK, I don’t know if they’re haters, or just downright WEIRD. And notice that “weird” is in all caps.
One of the complaints about “Django Unchained” is that the “n” word is used over 100 times. The film critic for People magazine admitted that she counted 115 uses of the word, and then complained about its “gory violence.”
Earth to “Django Unchained” critics: it’s a QUENTIN TARANTINO film, people! If you went in expecting to see something along the lines of “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm,” then YOU, not Tarantino, have the problem.
And who sits in a movie and counts how many times the “n” word – or any other word, for that matter – is used? People who have admitted doing this told me nothing about Tarantino, but they told me quite a bit about themselves.
I’ll just cut straight to the chase: THIS AIN’T NORMAL CONDUCT, PEOPLE! Please, get a life. Or, at the very least, get yourselves some much-needed therapy.
