Quentin Tarantino won the award for the best screenplay for “Django Unchained” at the Golden Globe Awards event. After he has just picked up the award, Tarantino shocked the press by uttering the racist term while defending its use in his slavery-era spaghetti western named “Django Unchained”.


He used the N-word in the winners room. The famous filmmaker said about it: “They think I should soften it, that I should lie, that I should massage. I would never do that when it comes to my characters.”


The film’s setting is in 1860 antebellum South and involves rife and violence. This is not the first time when Quentin Tarantino makes this point. He did it before, as well, even on a Canadian talk show in December called George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight: “This whole thing of this ‘war on drugs’ and the mass incarcerations that have happened pretty much for the last 40 years has just decimated the black male population. “It’s slavery. It’s just slavery through and through, and it’s just the same fear of the black male that existed back in the 1800s.”


Related to what he said at the Golden Globes Awards event, Tarantino explained: “If somebody is out there actually saying when it comes to the word ‘n—–,’ the fact that I was using it in the movie more than it was being used in the antebellum south in Mississippi, then feel free to make that case. But no one’s actually making that case.”

In terms of brutality and violence in his new film, the filmmaker said: “There’s two types of violence (in ‘Django’). There’s the brutality of the violence in the day, put upon the slaves during the time, that hasn’t been dealt with in America to the extent I deal with it. There was two holocausts in America, this is one of them. Then there’s a cathartic violence of ‘Django’ paying back blood for blood.”
