2 Live Crew veteran Luther Campbell is not happy with Spike Lee’s harsh critique of Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,”and has come out swinging at the Brooklyn based director.

Spike, who was not pleased with Tarantino’s repeated use of the n-word in “Django’s” script, is on the receiving end of some pretty harsh epithets in Campbell’s new op-ed for the Miami New Times.

“Screw Spike Lee,” Campbell begins. “Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ is a brilliant flick that more accurately depicts the African-American experience than any of the 15 movies about black culture Lee’s directed in his lifetime.”

Though that may seem harsh,it’s nothing compared to how Campbell closed his piece:

“Spike is upset because Samuel L. Jackson’s character in the movie is just like him: a conniving and scheming Uncle Tom.”

In December, Spike called “Django Unchained” “disrespectful to my ancestors” and tweeted that he was “honoring” the memory of those ancestors by protesting the film.

Meanwhile, Tarantino picked up a Golden Globe award for Best Screenplay at Sunday’s ceremony, where he went on to say the n-word himself.
