Starting at around the 4:09 mark in the clip above, Krishnan Guru-Murthy of Britain’s Channel 4 News starts asking Quentin Tarantino about the link between violence in movies and violence in real life. That question has been to QT’s ears dozens of times before and it’s pissed him off dozens of times before and this time was no exception. Krishnan asked QT why he doesn’t believe there’s a connection between loving fake violence in movies and loving real violence in real life, and he was not having any of it. QT tried to shut him down by saying, “Don’t ask me a question like that. I’m not biting. I’m refusing your question. I’m not your slave and you’re not my master. You can’t make me dance to your tune. I’m not your monkey. I refuse.” Eeeesh. Bitch got dramatic like that. I’m surprised QT didn’t jump out of his chair, put his finger in Krishnan’s face and say, “All my life I had to fight…..”
Krishnan wouldn’t back down and he kept pressing the question on QT and QT kept pushing the question away. QT let Krishnan know that the interview was a commercial for his movie and to Google him, you dumb fuck (copyright: Nay Nay Semel), to get the answer to the violence question, because he’s answered it a million times before. QT went off like this:
“I don’t want [to answer that]. I’m here to sell my movie. This is a commercial for the movie. Make no mistake. […] I don’t want to talk about what you want to talk about. I don’t want to talk about the implications of violence. The reason I don’t want to talk about it? Because I’ve said everything I have to say about it. If anyone cares what I have to say about it, they can Google me. They can look for 20 years what I have to say. I haven’t changed my opinion one iota.”
At one point, QT shouts, “I’m shutting your butt down!” Personally, I think QT went too far with that line. QT should watch what he says, because that line hits too close to
homo home for some. How would he like it if every time he had a rectal exam at the clinic, he heard that line from his free clinic physician AND the CDC. Nobody wants their butt shut down. That’s like shutting down a party early.
Krishnan and QT went at it for a while before moving on to the next question and going on with the interview like professionals. But Krishnan went about it the wrong way. You have to sweeten QT up if you want him to answer some serious questions. Krishnan should’ve slowly took off his leather oxford loafers, sensually stripped off his socks one by one, squirted the Jergens on his toes and let QT go to QT’s favorite place: Foot Town. QT would’ve been putty in his feet and would’ve answered any question Krishnan asked. Yes, QT would’ve had to excuse himself a couple of times, but at least Krishnan would’ve gotten answers to his questions.
