Quentin Tarantino Tells Reporter 'I'm shutting your butt down!'
Quentin Tarantino Tells Reporter 'I'm shutting your butt down! Django Unchained' director Quentin Tarantino has blasted Channel 4 presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy, during a heated interview on Thursday night.
The filmaker, who is known for his violent films such as 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction', told Guru-Murthy: "I'm shutting your butt down," when he was probed on a link between violence on screen and in real life.
Tarantino's latest film 'Django Unchained', which received five nominations for both the Oscars and Baftas this week, once again centres heavily on violence as it tells the story of a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) who frees a slave (Jamie Foxx) and partners up with him to liberate his wife (Kerry Washington) from the hands of a fearsome plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).
In the US, the film was released days after the Newtown school massacre, in which 20 children were killed in Connecticut.
Its world premiere was cancelled in the wake of the school shooting, which occurred just days earlier.
