As the controversy surrounding ‘Django Unchanged’ continues on, legendary civil rights activist and comedian Dick Gregory lashed out at Spike Lee for slamming the Quentin Tarantino film even though he has no plans of ever watching it.
“I’ve seen Django Unchained 12 times. Never in the history of Hollywood, have they ever made anything that freed the inside of me. The inside of me. I’m 80 years old, I saw cowboy movies, wasn’t no black folks in cowboy movies. I’m looking at a Western, plus a love story. To those of you all that see it, you’ll never see a love story about a black man and a black woman where it wasn’t some foul sex and foul language, huh.”
“And Spike Lee can’t appreciate that. The little thug ain’t even seen the movie; he’s acting like he white,” said Gregory in an interview posted on YouTube.
