Quentin Tarantino Shuts Down Reporter: “I Am Not Your Slave, You Are Not My Master!”

Since Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie came out, “Django Unchained,” there’s been a lot of debate on whether he should take responsibility for making such violent movies, which might engender violence in real life and thus lead to tragedies like Sandy Hook.

British journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy of Channel 4 tried to get Tarantino to talk a bit about that during a press junket for the film, only to be shot down by the director in a very determined manner.

Check out the video above to hear what Tarantino had to say about his refusal to discuss the topic any further.

“Do not ask me a question like that. I’m not biting. I refuse your question. Because 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… and I’m saying I refuse,” he said.

The good part though is that he did not take offense with the journalist for asking the question even if he refused to answer it. Tarantino stayed on and finished the interview, and even did it very politely.
