‘Chaeppelle’s Show’ star Donnell Rawlings is telling Spike Lee that he needs to relax over Quentin Tarantino’s use of the n-word in his new movie, ‘Django Unchained,’ TMZ is reporting. The comedian was in Los Angeles on Thursday night, coming to the western film director’s defense, and criticizing Lee for blasting the use of the word in the film. Lee called the word, which is featured 110 times throughout the film, disrespectful to his ancestors.
Rawlings said to Lee, “I know you been talking a lot of sh*t. You don’t like nobody’s movies. You don’t like Tyler Perry movies. You don’t like Quentin movies. I don’t even think you like YOUR movies.” The actor added, “If you don’t understand, Quentin’s movie is a Quentin movie. It’s not a real story … It’s only a damn movie.”
