Spike Lee Not Interested In DJANGO UNCHAINED, Calls It “Disrespectful to My Ancestors”

Adding more fuel to the already controversial Django Unchained, Oldboy director Spike Lee shares some constructive…err… criticism. The outspoken filmmaker has some harsh words for director Quentin Tarantino, which is reminiscent of a past exchange between the two.



Chatting with VibeTV, Spike Lee notes on whether he will see Django Unchained or not.
"All I'm going to say is that it's disrespectful to my ancestors,” says Lee. “That's just me...I'm not speaking on behalf of anybody else."





Lee continued this discussion on Twitter:



As I stated in the teaser, this is not the first time Lee has had a publicized dispute with Tarantino. Many can remember the black-exploitation homage film Jackie Brown, which garnered a ton of criticism for its heavy use of the N-word. Do you think it was odd for Spike Lee to judge a film he hasn’t seen yet, or is he totally right?



Django Unchained is a western film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. The film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson.
