When I think of Hollywood celebrities, directors, and moguls, a word that often comes to mind is “hypocrite.”
They love getting on TV at awards shows, joining marches, and boosting social justice causes while they themselves engage in all manner of misconduct. In the still-snowballing aftermath of the Weinstein sex scandal that recently shook Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino has found himself under fire.
A report from Breitbart reads, “Tarantino, according to his own words, was covering for and enabling what Breitbart News must describe as Harvey Weinstein’s alleged crimes, but what Tarantino believes were crime-crimes, like the ‘unwanted touching’ of Tarantino’s girlfriend Mira Sorvino. ‘I knew enough to do more than I did,’ he said, citing several episodes involving prominent actresses. ‘There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.'”
In what is becoming a very repeated statement among the lefty Hollywood elitists, Tarantino is quoted as saying, “everyone who was close to Harvey had heard of at least one of those incidents. It was impossible that they didn’t.”
When Tarantino isn’t preoccupied hiding sexual assault claims for friends, he spends some of his time protesting police. At an anti-police rally in New York Tarantino professed before a crowd of people,
“I am a human being with a conscience. And when I see murder, I cannot stand by, and I have to call the murdered the murdered and I have the call the murderers the murderers.”
Tarantino is the epitome of a disconnected, narrative-driven, Hollywood hack that loves to lecture the world about injustice while standing proudly content at masking the alleged sexual assault from close associates. It leaves one to wonder if there aren’t any skeletons in his closet that others are covering for now. Only time will tell I guess. Until then, I will not be watching any Tarantino movies.
