A few weeks back, director Spike Lee shared his thoughts on Quentin Tarantino’s depiction of slavery in Django Unchained, despite the fact that he had yet to see the film. Lee argued that Tarantino was treating slavery like a joke, which led to his obvious disgust with the whole project.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Director Antoine Fuqua came to Tarantino’s defense while speaking at the 17th Capri, Hollywood Film Festival.

“That’s just not the way you do things,” said Fuqua, in reference to Lee’s quote. “If you disagree with the way a colleague did something, call him up, invite him out for a coffee, talk about it. But don’t do it publicly.”

“I don’t think Quentin Tarantino has a racist bone in his body,” he said. “Besides, I’m good friends with [Django Unchained star] Jamie Foxx and he wouldn’t have anything to do with a film that had anything racist to it.”

Django was expected to be a controversial film, and it seems like the issue isn’t going away any time soon. We feel as though both men should actually go see the movie before defending it or knocking it!
