After appearing at an anti-cop rally in Manhattan's Washington Square Park on Saturday, toe-suckin' director Quentin Tarantino is now #1 on the NYPD's shitlist.
The revered filmmaker riled a crowd of protesters up by saying, "When I see murderers, I do not stand by...I have to call the murderers the murderers," in reference to the rising police brutality of the past two years.
With the murder of a NY cop Randolph Holder occurring in Harlem less than a week before Tarantino's park appearance, the city's boys and gals in blue are yelling "TOO SOON."
The president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, Patrick Lynch, used Tarantino's violent filmography to "expose" the auteur's hypocrisy.
He released a fiery statement on the matter:
"It's no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too.
The police officers that Quentin Tarantino calls 'murderers' aren't living in one of his depraved big-screen fantasies -- they're risking and sometimes sacrificing their lives to protect communities from real crime and mayhem.New Yorkers need to send a message to this purveyor of degeneracy that he has no business coming to our city to peddle his slanderous 'Cop Fiction.'"
Can you imagine the city actually taking him up on this and banning all things Quentin Tarantino?
Upscale hotel concierges denying him service....
"Try a Holiday Inn," a bougie one says.
Later, Quentin sheepishly walks into the lobby of a Marriott Courtyard in North Jersey....
Entire neighborhoods piling Kill Bill DVDS, Pulp Fiction posters in the middle of the street and then lighting it on fire.....
A cab driver slowly recognizing Tarantino (who's wearing a disguise), and then dropping him off in the middle of the West Side Highway....
Teachers giving their elementary students lessons on what to do if they see Quentin Tarantino; they respond by pointing their fingers and screaming, a la Donald Sutherland in Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
A world without Quentin.
