Comedian Katt Williams criticized and threatened Quentin Tarantino for repeatedly using the N-word in his new western, ‘Django Unchained,’ TMZ is reporting. In between being released from jail for gun-related child endangerment charges and watching his friend Suge Knight get into a fight in a Hollywood club parking lot, Williams said he would physically beat the director if he got the chance.
While Spike Lee voiced his objection over Tarantino’s language in the film, Williams said he would punch the filmmaker in the face. The ‘Scary Movie 5′ actor said “Quentin Tarantino thinks he can say the N-word. But I checked with all of Ni**adom and nobody knows where he got his pass from. I hope he didn’t get it from Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx cause they aren’t going to help you when I see you.”
When a TMZ photographer tried to compare Tarantino to Steven Spielberg, who used the word in his 1997 historical drama ‘Amistad,’ Williams said “Quentin Tarantino is no Steven Spielberg. Steven Spielberg doesn’t wanna be black, Quentin Tarantino thinks he is. So when he meets a real ni**a, we’ll see if he is or not.”
